ZBGNW BRZZNSK WARNS ISRAEL
You've probably noticed that I have no love lost for Zbgnw Brzzsk, you know, the former Carter Administration National Security Advisor who has precious few vowels in his otherwise un-pronouncable name. He's the guy that gave us such naked exercises in elitist onanism as Between Two Ages and The Grand Chessboard. Into this stage-dressing, we must enter the recent Israeli notification to the imperial U.S. of Amerika that it would not warn this nation of any unilateral action it undertook against Iran and its "terrifying" nuclear program.
Well, much as the words gag in my throat and the thought repulses me, for once, I have to say two cheers for Zbgnw Brzznsk for this recent exchange, recorded in the linked article by Justin Raimondo following the quotation:
"A normal country would answer Israeli efforts to blackmail us into attacking Iran with a message short and sweet. I would send Zbigniew Brzezinski over there to tell them what he told the Daily Beast in an interview:
“'How aggressive can Obama be in insisting to the Israelis that a military strike might be in America’s worst interest?'
"ZB: '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?'
"ZB: '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.'
"That this scenario is not within the realm of the politically possible is our national shame. Our politicians preen and pose as great “patriots,” and yet the more “patriotic” they claim to be the more they seem to favor appeasing the Israelis at America’s expense."
(Read the complete article here:
Raimondo gets it correct, save in one important point. Someone as (self-) important as Zbgnw Brzznsk is not a man to measure his words inaccurately, nor is he inclined to underestimate his words and how they will be perceived in the world at large...
...and in Tel Aviv. There is indeed, in other words, no reason for President Obama to fly Mr. Brzznsk to Israel to have him deliver the message.
That messages was already delivered as soon as Mr. Brzznsk spoke his remarks... Don't believe me? Then note Mr. Brzznsk's careful reference to the USS LIberty "incident" when Israeli forces attacked a US Navy ship in the 1960s. THe message is clear: this would be long-overdo "payback." And that payback, he is hinting, would be a bitch.
See you on the flip side...

he hooked out his daughter to the chinese…so says Kubrick s cube.
Zvigniew has finally rediscovered his humanity at the 11th hour, 59th minute, 59th nanosecond. WTF, better late than never! Remember the Liberty.
Hey, Dingbat did you even notice the article was from 2009?
Yea I did actually… I still thought it was important enough to let people know. Thanks for the kind words
So a Ding-a-Ling calls somebody a Ding-Bat!
Flattery will get you no where!
For when Ding-a-lings challenge me (you)
I take it I (you) must be doing something
right for a change, ha, ha!
Have a re – SOUNDING Delightful Day – this day TODAY!
I would begin to wonder if everyone
agreed with me?
Then I probably would be losing my
touch and becoming a ding-bat too!
Umm…if you notice and watch his protocol, Joseph doesn’t operate as some news reporter, but he posts articles or other material that could be anywhere from 20 seconds to 200 years old or older. He uses ideas as a point of departure to enter dialogue both with the material and his readers. I guess it involves too much ‘thought’ to see that…
i think Farrell is one of those kind of Authors (Am I type-casting him – I don’t think so. Maybe I am?) that it would help to read his very last Book.
He’s kind of got a developmental type of mind. That is good but not always. Teleology ( if I got that word right?) is better in the long run!
I try to imagine what kind of book he would write in the twilight of his earth-bound life or years?
I know some authors vehmentantly insist the reader examine and base conclusions strick-ly on the text and the text alone.
Nice Thought but this is the real world we live in. ( a world of READERS) For me if I am drawn to an author “You Better Believe I Am Interested in What Sort of Man or Woman They Are!!!!!
It matters. —- I often disagree with conclusions such as the idea of ‘MUST WE BURN SADE’ but at least I learn something we might not have known before.
Farrell has been bugging me lately? i cant quite put my finger on it but I will eventually. Something is either “slipping” into his text or “slipping’ out of his text. (I know he aint that diabolical to pull that kind of linguistic magic for he does appear to be Ethically Aware in a genuine way and like that but one knows for sure? )
He annoys me in a way. Annoyances are a pain in the ass for they never really come out and say what’s on their minds. ( in this modern world one can get use to having their cake served on silver platters. We all would like that but I learned through hard knocks that shit served on silver platters is awful-tasting! Better something that looks ugly to eat served on a napkin that is so rare and delicious its almost worth all the indigestion one experiences following that kind of philosophy. ( I may not be the fastest learner but I pay attention! Anyway I am not a student of Farrell. If by accident and I don’t care if it is accidental – If by accident he can lead me to where theirs water that he might not even drink ….
I am sure as hell going to quench my thirst!
One more thing about my wisecrack concerning the Daily Bell. It wasn’t meant to imply error in it’s evaluations. I just don’t like or am Prejudiced against the SYMBOL OF A BELL – period.
When all one hears is the same mediocra music dressed up as something novel — over and over again, then one begins to imagine ‘ONE’S HEAD IS STUCK IN A …. YOU guess it for your self.
They canceled the GONG-SHOW but evidently the Alternate/Conspiracy people haven’t heard that, what —1970 old news.
Maybe the guy (?) who called you a “Dingbat” was experiencing something like that? ( I think not — it was probably just plain old-fashion malicious!
Wasn’t it in Faust where Metophisto said something like this —-I am the kind of guy who always intend intents harm nothing but good comes out of it — so that could be Farrel’s come-back instead of “Thanks for the compliment. To each her/his own! )
Farrell may have unconsciously kicked himself out of this Churchology but I think or believe he was helped along the way.
Look at YOU now. They did you a favor kicking you upstairs.
Who knows — maybe you haven’t reached your final level of Incompetence YET and you have still higher places to go —-ha, ha?
I imagine one of the reasons He left his old occupation is that these AUTHORATARIANS realized this Farrell guy ‘ISN’T REALLY ONE OF US!” ( or in other words he’s like Brutus — he’ll stab us in the back when he finds out!) That’s the good part. I don’t know? What kind of brains does it take to Attend a place called Oral Roberts University. I know we all get hoodwinked in our youth and make some pretty big whopper decisions which we pay for throughout our entire lives due to the foolishness of YOUTH but come on now ORAL ROBERTS UNIVERSITY! Simply amazing!
The bad part – I don’t know? Just constant popping up of hunches! I might be misunderstanding something or his content matter with the Man himself. Something which is very easy to do when you hear some authors say — This Book is Me or something like — This book is my Baby! I don’t know anything about Farrell’s parental instincts ( maybe we are his babies, ha, ha!) so I wont say anything.
I do wonder what it’s like to be the Son of an Engineer?
I automatically look at an authors last work for sometimes it can save me much time and confusion in working through or out the authors thoughts. (or at least what I imagine are the author’s thought. I guess to be extremely literal I would have to say my thoughts in reaction to the author’s statements but I assume the author is influencing me whether I know it or not so i will attribute qualities to the author and assume she/he possesses them.)
I was wondering Why someone would say, “He dingbat, the article was written in 2009. We have to know thyself but it is also wise to know thy-enemy as well. Sometimes (rarely though) thy enemy is thy friend. Often enough, as in my own case One is their own worst enemy! Don’t believe me? Look in the mirror if your not narcissistic. Are you absolutely certain there isn’t some devil looking back at you, ha, ha? As if you don’t cast any shadows — Hello Jesus if you believe that?)
I may be way out of line with this post but I don’t think so? Have you ever asked a professor or teacher this:
“Would you like to know what students are saying behind your back?”
Not many can resist that kind of temptation even if they PRETEND not to be interested and If they really don’t care one iota then GET ME AWAY FROM STUFFED SHIRT!
These annoyances have nothing to do with the man or author himself but I confound it with old habits or old ways of thinking.
It is this Idea of the Flood or Catastophe! I am not so much concerned about what exploded 2 million years ago. What interests me is ten-thousand years or so!
The Alien Beings saw this super-nova lets say the nova happened thousands of eons ago but the Shock Waves were about to hit the earth and they made haste and got out or away in time!.
But, some got LEFT-BEHIND?
They’re now a pretty pissed off group and in time deluded themselves into thinking their gods. So they invent technology and induce a couple of clever experiences, similar to what Descartes Demon would do, INTO a few natural born Alpha types ( you know the type —always pushy telling everybody what to do!) and presto —- There we have it. (one small part of the Mystery?)
Now I can hear some psychologist saying in my imagination. Paul, your 62 years old — what’s is this left behind business really about? My retort would be Farrell only sold about 20, 000 books (I have no way of knowing) but those religious nuts who wrote the LEFT-BEHIND series sold 600 million and counting! So the annoyance of left-behind is not merely or only my personal problem of aging. Evidently in this fast paced world many are experiencing this collective phenomenon (Archetype anyone?)
But that isn’t it either?
Ever hear the spiritual saying, —You are IN this world but not of it? Sounds nice on the surface but it’s really awful. A homeless mind or being traveling through space for eternity never finding a place of peace. Not my idea (Samsari) or much fun!
Some old Native Americans and a few young ones too say, “You white people always are discontented – having to always go someplace else.
They say, The Earth is our Home!
They say, “We are OF the world not in it! When we die we are just coming home back to the Great Mama! (in which we came out of —- regressive as that sounds I like the idea of Oceanic Pleasure.)
Who’s gets left behind if your everywhere around you?
I always been a turtle so of course I am going to feel left-behind!. When I PRETEND to be a ‘hare” things get really zany!
Know thyself — I was walking along the sidewalk going somewhere yesterday when in the window of this store I saw a guy with a large pot-belly. I had to laugh for it was only a reflection for that guy was me! ha, ha, ha or like NAGA says, HO HO HUM!
I once heard this recovered for years old-wise-man tell about his moment of truth when he saw this “Will you look at this-dirty-filthy-bum in that store!”
Now he’s a very old, very SOBER MAN with totally white hair and the Clearest BLUE-EYES I ever saw. (one would think you would see some traces of agglutination age and past considering but this very “fragile” but powerful old gent’s eyes were absolutely CLEAR- BLUE! (a rare site indeed!)
Too bad I broke our connection off by calling him an Ideologue!
Probably both our loses but I had enough of former Teachers!
That idea of a huge catastrophe still bugs me.
I got post-traumatic-syndrone and I was never even there! ( I better hurry up and go help some head-shrinking psychiatrist get a new second CABANA?)
Probabilily the best thing we could do is hope that both sides of the House of Abraham dispose of each other so we can have some kind of peace for awhile.
I agree with you but misery loves company. I don’t think it will play out like that for I am almost certain they (who?) have some “plans’ for us who squark(ed) at their in-genuis ideas (neo-conservatism along with neo-liberalism and lets throw in Libertarianism for good measure.!
i am afraid it will be some kind of Luciferic Celebration of Doom or War is the Health of the Nation kind of bullshit! Then again I am caught up in this dam Apocalyptic (like some epepletic about to have a seizure) Theater and cant wake up from it no matter how hard i try!
MARCOS — Think about that Hindu god. I think his name is Vishnu? Well there’s some huge some where around 200feet long statue of him lying on his side dreaming up the UNIVERSE! (I wonder what happens when he wakes up from his deep-sleep and gets pissed off at finding out it was all just a dream?)
Another Big-Bang in the making?
I wonder if mainstream will flesh-out or flush-out the ‘liberty’ reference(if they adress this at all)?
It is fittingly appropriate that this will be occurring under the Screaming March Madness airwave broadbands.
Got to confess: I’am in that Madness category myself.
Have you noticed all the elites turning? I am watching this all go down in real time and I am beside myself…the GS resignation yesterday. The KONY2012 total BACKFIRE, what is it, 350 high level bank resignations in the last 60 days.
It’s happening…its slow though. Its almost like we are in a type of time stasis where less and less is happening in more and more space rather than more and more was happening in less and less space…
You know, this is the first year in memory I am not filling out a bracket…I’m not that into watching sports so much as playing, but this year it just doesnt have any value…several people I talked to this morning (to find out who was in the pool) have said the same thing and I intended to fill one (or several) out until a few hours ago…
