Old Carterite Brzezinski: Fight Israelis, Not Iranians

And once upon a time, Brzezinski was a fairly smart guy:

How aggressive can Obama be in insisting to the Israelis that a military strike might be in America’s worst interest?

We are not exactly impotent little babies. They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?

What if they fly over anyway?

Well, we have to be serious about denying them that right. That means a denial where you aren’t just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a Liberty in reverse.

“Insane” and “stupid” compete with each other in this statement. This is one of the top foreign policy minds in the Democratic party – their Grand Old Man of foreign affairs…and if the Israelis decide to strike Iran’s nuclear program (because they feel we won’t do anything about it…and we’re making it pretty clear we won’t do anything about it), he wants us to risk battle with the Israeli air force. Where do the Democrats get people like this?

The good news is that he’s not in charge of anything in Obama’s Administration…the bad news is that we’re relying on Hillary Clinton to give better advice.
