Superman Obama, Ignore Ignatius's Advice, Brzezinski is Kryptonite

It is a wet dream for Zbigniew Brzezinski for the US partition Russia. He wants the US to have "hegemony" over Siberia as a way to dominate the world for the foreseeable future. ... No, I do not have tin foil wrapped around my head to protect my brain from aliens ... "Zbig" says so himself in his book "The Grand Chessboard". See an excerpt here. David Ignatius, what are you thinking?

A Manifesto For the Next President -
David Ignatius -

"The most intriguing part of Brzezinski's book is what I would describe as the Obama manifesto. (He doesn't call it that, but I don't think he would quarrel with that characterization, either.) Brzezinski argues that the world is undergoing a 'global political awakening,' which is apparent in radically different forms from Iraq to Indonesia, from Bolivia to Tibet. Though America has focused on its notion of what people want (democracy and the wealth created by free trade and open markets), Brzezinski points in a different direction: It's about dignity.

'The worldwide yearning for human dignity is the central challenge inherent in the phenomenon of global political awakening,' he argues. His worry is that America -- enfeebled by 'material self-indulgence, persistent social shortcomings, and public ignorance about the world' -- may not get it."
