Brzezinski: ‘Global Political Awakening’ Making Syrian War Difficult

During a short interview with Germany’s DW News last Monday, former US National Security Adviser and Trilateral Commission co-founder Zbigniew Brzezinski commented on the growing inefficiency of war due to the increased political knowledge of the public.

Brzezinski-global-awakening-news“Given the contemporary reality of what I have called in my writings ‘Global Political Awakening,’ a policy of force based primarily on Western and in some cases former colonial powers does not seem to me a very promising avenue to an eventual solution to the regional problem,” said Brzezinski, referring to the situation in Syria.

Despite Brzezinski’s noted long-term relationship with Obama which included a top foreign policy adviser position, Brzezinski denied any specific knowledge of his plans regarding Syria, saying that if the administration has a strategy, it’s a “very well-kept secret.”

Obama’s Middle Eastern strategy has been a mere continuation of the policies seen under Bush, exemplified by former four star general and NATO commander Wesley Clark’s admission of the Bush-era Pentagon plan to overthrow several countries including Libya and Syria.

Although Brzezinski at times attempts to appear opposed to military interventionism, President Obama’s actions in Syria, which include the support of admitted Al Qaeda fighters, closely mirrors several of Brzezinski’s previous policies, most notably the opposition to the Soviet Union in 1979, where decisions made by Brzezinski led to the creation of Al Qaeda through the CIA funding of the Afghan Mujaheddin.

Brzezinski’s call of warning to the “global political awakening” has only intensified in recent years. Last year during a speech in Poland, Brzezinski noted that it has become “increasingly difficult to suppress” and control the “persistent and highly motivated populist resistance of politically awakened and historically resentful peoples.” Brzezinski also blamed the accessibility of “radio, television and the Internet” for the “universal awakening of mass political consciousness.”

“[The] major world powers, new and old, also face a novel reality: while the lethality of their military might is greater than ever, their capacity to impose control over the politically awakened masses of the world is at a historic low. To put it bluntly: in earlier times, it was easier to control one million people than to physically kill one million people; today, it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control one million people,” said Brzezinski during a 2010 Council on Foreign Relations speech in Montreal.

Despite attempts by both the Republican and Democratic leadership to gain support for a war in Syria, a new Reuters poll revealed that only 9 percent of Americans support military intervention in Syria. If the United States intervenes, it will be the least popular war in American history.

The massive and growing evidence forced out by the alternative media, which points to a US backed chemical attack by Al Qaeda led rebel forces to be blamed on Assad, has only accelerated the inevitable downfall of the corporate press that is now only trusted by 23 percent of the public.

    As a Independent/Conservative Jew I'm disgusted with Israel if they are truly part of this. However, just remember they are boxed in by Obama and 70% of commie American JAP/P's and we don't really know the truth. I read the phone calls were just Assad's generals trying to figure out what happened. Try to Google it cos the transcript was very clear. So don't go bashing us without really knowing the facts!

      The truth shall set you free. Lies will burn ruin you.

        NOT “another investigation”, but a FULL REENACTMENT :

        We petition the Obama administration to:

        Ask the American people to reenact 9/11.

        According to Wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Trade_Center ):

        “When the World Trade Center twin towers were completed, the total costs to the Port Authority had reached $900 million”, MUCH less than the price paid by the American people for last decade’s wars.

        Please remind the citizens of the U.S. that they are free to peacefully assemble, to organize themselves, to use available blueprints, dummies, full scale replicas of planes and WTC buildings, in order to reenact, in a remote location, some of the events of September the eleventh, 2001.

        Reenacting some of the events of 9/11/2011 will indeed bring change and hope, will boost confidence, credibility and stability, will promote prosperity both in the U.S. and all over the world.

        Kind regards,

        Ben Franklin

      “..boxed in by Obama and 70% of commie American JAP..” Are you ok in the head?

      You have it the other way round. Didnt you see the 29 standing ovations the Zionazi Bibi Netanyahu received from Congress? Not even Presidents receive such rapture.

      All you need to know is 5 letters.

      US Government is owned AIPAC.

      • Heidi says:

        Please stop calling them "Nazis" – the term was created by the Jewish-Bolshevik-Communists, because the National Socialists called them "Stasis". Google it.

        They are Communists, and have always been Communists – "Theodor Herzl, Founder of Modern Zionism" by Israel Cohen, confirms their motives, and that it was the Russian Communists Jews that were the main 'immigrants' to Palestine.

        Google "New York Times, October 6, 1940, 'New World Order Pledged to the Jews'".

        It's time to read from the 'vanquished' side of history.

    • At no time in the article did I mention “Israel” or “Jews,” so I’m not sure where you are getting your “bashing” claims.

    • Kirk says:

      We can’t speak in terms of countries: Israel, US, UK, etc.

      The truth is that these terrible atrocities are carried out by a very small % of the country’s population. Usually extremely wealthy with friends in high places and always in seek of more power. My point is that these murderous, traitors do incredibly terrible thing in the name of the majority.

      It’s never the people who authorize the acts who are labeled as the initiators, its always simply the entire country’s name used.

      Most Americans are good people who do not seek to rule the world or treat people from other countries as less than. We see that the only real growth is when the entire world does it together, because that is honestly all we have when you look at the BIG picture.

      Just as I do not blame Israelis. I am sure they are mostly very good people with big hearts, but are lead by a cabal of wolves who seek to expand their power while using the entire country’s name to shield them from being outed as the true culprits.

      We only have 1 planet, 1 home. Most of us seek to share the resources and make each other stronger, but a select few seek to dominate and control through any means necessary, especially deception and treachery.

      Spread love in all forms. Best of luck to you!

    100% amazing

  3. seems "WE" are making a difference………….

    • ABC says:

      Sure – but you realize that what he is saying is that the time for persuasion is over – he is openly recommending killing people in their millions.

      Its obvious that people here are oblivious to the alternative he is recommending – because most people don’t know they are dealing with psychopaths.

      • health news says:

        he below scripture fits in well with his fall at the chinese new year festival.

        Psalm Chapter 10:15

        Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none.

        • news guide says:

          This wonderful report and comments helps us keep in mind just how horrible the Tri-lateralists, CFR et al are. Political awakening? The murderous lies have been exposed. Pity we peasants are no longer complicit in our own destruction. So, "Z little" finds it easier to kill a million people now. Guess what, it's even easier for one million to do him and his cohort psychopaths in. Better, how about 300+ million of us.

  4. T says:

    “It used to be easier to control 1 million people than to kill them. Now, it is easier to kill 1 million people than to control them.” Zbigniew Berzinski (loosely quoted) Look it up. Peace.

    • Dutch says:

      Crazy right. The guy is actually bummed about the fact that he can't do either. Can you say "Sociapath"?

      Send and e-mail or have a phone conversation about killing a million people and see how fast the SWAT team shows up at your house. Yet this guy speaks openly about it with nothing but a sense of longing and missed opportunity. Forget about Republican or Democrat. THIS should tell you all you need to know about where the lines are really drawn.

      Think about how much better a place the world will be when those million people show up at this one person's house with torches and pitchforks. Won't be long now methinks…

    Love Storyleak best reports

    • jimbo says:

      Seems some due diligence is still required on Israel being ” the source” of ” proof”. Let’s see the video of Kerry saying ” the web is getting in our way”….I love this site for ease of posting and not asking for $ we don’t have!!

    • Mikael Thalen Mikael Thalen says:

      Thank You Jay RR, we appreciate you reading them

  6. Roy says:

    The Russians have satellites too. When Obama rolls out his evidence, it better match the facts or else the U.S. is going to look like a fool.

    • Obamistake says:

      Every day he’s in office this country can’t be taken seriously.

    • seenittoday says:

      Lol what evidence? It sure as hell wont be the truth otherwise the american pubic would string the ruling classes up

    • Gertjan Zwiggelaar says:

      The Jew S A already looks like a fool. Has looked the fool for many decades to those of us with our eyes open.

      As for Mister B, it is also very well known by a lot of people all over the world, that he should be institutionalized for being a sociopathic monster completely wired to be something other than a compassionate human being. He actually could be an Archon.

  7. Jimbo says:

    OK so Snowden is a virtual flake and I have 35+ years in tech. 1) He has no tan on his face from living in Hawaii the land of Obama's B/C. 2) First he has a thumb drive that turns into 4 laptops. 3) See the 5+ year old PBS documentary with NSA gal quit from listening to boring Americans 4) Now he was at the Ruski embassy in HK. 5) AT&T tapping cables is old news along with inet providers. 6) Old Fusion ctr. Interviews show gal saying it's only Americans. 7) Now it's a " fleet of SATs on UBL and suddenly we can't see bio/Chen weapons. 8) We don't know N. Korea and it makes sense. 9) His slides are is pretty but it's gone and had no Beef 10) The timing of new info " Russia wouldn't allow him to release" coincides with the current " news"/ false flags. 11) He now works for Wikileaks Russia 12) See previous " Chinese stealing our secrets" and other " leaks". I say he maybe a real person but kind of looks like pale Russian. 12) Where is the real Proof of Life cos it's all videos and tweets by all of the players. I can go on but I hope you folks and Alex will start getting smart about this. Of course we spy on everyone cos Europe alone has over 150M Antisemites alone and Commies around the world. Of course Israel spy's on America with Commies from WWII/FDR. So read the book American Betray first, then Disinformation second cos " The only thing new is the true history we don't know" Just remember " What's old is new" too many generations and folks don't know tech.

  8. Jimbo says:

    So hers is some more: 13) "They can now turn our microphones on" Old cos the FBI turned old analog/dial phones on to listen in. See old news about school principles etc. hijacking kids computer cameras. I have kept tape over my camera cos they can see you for a collage. 14) "I think he actually said " lizard/advanced folks living underground". I say he and others are in underground cities by DIA and others with the FBI pumping out this stuff as needed. So the UK " destroyed his stuff" but then start releasing it themselves? I can't remember his original story but can easily explain more if Anthoney/Mikael & Alex will do some google due diligence for the real stories I keep posting about.

    • Lynette says:

      Jimbo…..what are your ramblings about??? Completely disjointed and you keep saying "he" but never say who you're talking about! Brzezinski or Snowden?? One of the "lizard people"?

      • Lynette says:

        And apparently, in your opinion, if you don't have a tan, you can't POSSIBLY live in Hawaii!!! So you judge sunny Californians and Floridians the same way……… OMG, sounds very narrow minded and opinionated to me!!

  9. Lone Ranger says:

    They can't have a war without our money. All wars are for wealth… period and proven over and over again.
    See the latest interview with Karen Hudes. What she has to tell is bigger than anything you could imagine. This is at the core of most bad news you will see on every alternative media network. Thing is they like regular media are not getting involved for some reason…? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

    • Chico says:

      They can have all the wars they want without our money! They don’t need our money, because they create the money out of thin air. As long as we accept the money they create, they can hire us to fight in all the wars they desire.

      • shakuvendell says:

        Not true. they need resources. not money. Money is a incremental, often material representation of the economic strength and resources of a nation. You can print off as many dollar bills as you like. Without the backing of an economy, they're just linen and ink.

    • BigFish92672 says:

      Declaring war on Nazi Germany didn’t work out too well for France and Britain. Declaring war on the Soviets didn’t work out too well for Nazi Germany. Declaring war on the US didn’t work out too well for the Empire of Japan. But I’d be interested in seeing your examples where it paid off over and over again.

    • Delmar jackson says:

      Hudes is deranged. I tend to agree with you on wealth and the wars, but Hudes claims she has proof the Vatican and the Jesuits are in control of everything and there are vast stores of gold buried that only need to be liberated and given back to the people of the world to solve everything.
      How do Vatican Jesuits profit from our being in mid eastern wars for the last 20 years while we spend a trillion dollars we don't have to protect the Straits of hormuz while at the same time leave our borders open and swamp our country with millions of 3rd worlders? I can think of a group of people that would profit from such a policy and it ain't Jesuits.

      • Money laundering, dark markets, underworld activity, unethical business practices, unfair competition. But I also agree regarding Jewish high financiers who make up 40% of the richest people on earth. Mafia like. Syndicated crimes that are right below the surface, but media is owned by this small group of very wealthy people and we would never know it. If the USA is swamped, it will be by the Asians, Chinese have surpassed Latinos as immigrants to US. Mexicans are returning and the number is going down. Police state does have some benefits.

  10. Chico says:

    Brzezinski is a hard-core sociopath and faithful servant of the ruling “elite” (deviants). Everything out of his mouth is designed to deceive and manipulate the public. Just because he says something you want to hear doesn’t make it the truth. You won’t get truth from him unless it serves the sociopaths in some manner.

    • Jimbo says:

      And his daughter gets paid millions on MSNBC. Right up there with Kissinger and Colin " partying" Powell.

      Here is the truth about Syria not being covered for now. This is real but I only focus on their politics that very often is really first.

    • Mike Blevins says:

      Chico, you've obviously done your homework. Brzezinski is just a bad as you say and even worse. My, my we can't have the common rank in file citizen becoming informed about what the elites are doing–and actually HAVING A SAY ABOUT IT, now can we?

      No, no. Keep the unwashed masses in the dark so states can keep on lying, cheating, stealing, plundering, and murdering unopposed.

      Damned internet!

  11. Z54 says:

    "Brzezinski denied any specific knowledge of his plans regarding Syria, saying that if the administration has a strategy, it’s a “very well-kept secret.”
    That's because anybody with even the remotest idea of what Slick Oily is up to is locked up in a dark windowless room in the basement of the White House. If it's illegal, it's got to be Top Secret!

    • Sick Of It says:

      They are still holding our children hostage in the government education system. Now 45 states have signed on to Common Core. The whole system needs to be taken down, piece by piece, or we will ultimately lose. They're still calm because they know children are the future…we need to reclaim our future and put an end to their rule.

  13. Guest says:

    It would be so much more impressive if the American people could speak openly, without having to be concerned regarding "consequences."

    As for this President, what commitment did he make prior to the election that he didn't break? Do the American People even know what the tally is of his many lies?

    • Lynette says:

      Coming soon……..David Icke's "The People's Voice"…….talk radio from his own studio in London where WE get the truth and also WE get to discuss whatever we want…….can't wait!!!

    Hey Zgib! Somebody scrambled the moves up on your chess board, did they? Awww! Shouldn't happen to a nice, white towered, academic psycho like yourself.

  16. BlankReg says:

    So basically Zbig is whining because "the interwebs" is interfering with the elitists' plans for continued global domination and control. Too effing bad. Boo hoo. They lost control of the message and people are slowly waking up. The question will be whether sufficient numbers will wake up in time. Because the Brxexinski's of the world never stop.

  17. DeSwiss says:

    Poor guy. Not the New World Order you planned for, eh Zbig? Gee that must really suck. You go to all the trouble to plan a Word Domination party, and everybody's too busy twerking…… :-/

    • Dutch says:

      Well said. So sad that for all their planning, the real New World Order is alternative news sites on the internet.

      Viva la Revolucion!

  18. IraqVet says:

    Brzezinski misses the old days of the Waffen SS.

  19. RW Nye says:

    In case you missed the implications, I suspect that Brzezinski is fully ready to advocate killing as many millions of people as it takes in order to maintain control. This man out-Machiavellis Machiavelli.

    wound up here Brzezinski: ‘Global Political Awakening’
    Making Syrian War Difficult. And I do have some questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be only me or does it look like some of the comments come
    across like they are written by brain dead visitors?

    :-P And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to
    post. Could you list of the complete urls of your public sites like your twitter feed,
    Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    Something terrible is coming to usher in the "new age" or new world order all the same thing.

  26. Do not heat the scale of the problem … Every problem can be solved by way of respect for the other side.

    • War is not the solution of peace, we should have to resolve all issues through dialogue. Political issues are also rise due to war, so we should have to keep in mind always that war is not a right thing and we should keep away from it.

  27. I guess she is NOT going to run choosing to stand with Obama instead of US. Obama will support Elizabeth Warren for the first female president. They started openly supporting her today. No matter what deals you made priviously with Obama, you should not be surprised. Solis Dole, “gotcha” in 08′. Now the King has the same satisfaction of making his day years ahead of time.

  28. Jozef says:

    Thanks funny site speciality a websit that can do my homework beset We know that many Egyptians, millions of Egyptians, perhaps even a majority of Egyptians were calling for a change in course. And while we do not believe that force is the way to resolve political differences, after the military’s intervention several weeks ago, there remained a chance for reconciliation and an opportunity to pursue a democratic path. Instead, we’ve seen a more dangerous path taken, through arbitrary arrests, a broad crackdown on Mr. Morsi’s associations and supporters and now, tragically, violence that’s taken the lives of hundreds of people and wounded thousands more.

  29. buty robocze says:

    You can see the USA could not resist …

  30. federico says:

    Great summary of some points, though the article is poorly written insofar as it makes no pretenses towards journalistic objectivity. Brzezinski did not, for example, "blame" the accessibility of media in creating the conditions for mass political awakening.

    It's writing like this that only prepetuates the general public's view of these articles as crackpot conspiracy mutterings, as opposed to genuine critiques of the structures underlying the world we live in.
