Brzezinski: Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter. We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.
this has to be from sometime in 1976-84 or so. If anyone can help me pin down the date, I’d appreciate it.
Zbigniew Brzezinski, Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser:
“We know of their deep belief in God and we are confident that their struggle will succeed.”
“That land over there is yours. You’ll go back to it one day because your fight will prevail. And you’ll have your homes, your mosques back again because your cause is right and God is on your side.”
“The purpose of coordinating with the Pakistanis will be to make the Soviets bleed for as much, as long as possible.“
anything to inflict suffering on Russia no matter what the cost, eh Zbig?
Revanchism (from French revanche, “revenge”) is a term used since the 1870s to describe a political manifestation of the will to reverse territorial losses incurred by a country, often following a war. Revanchism draws its strength from patriotic and retributionist thought and is often motivated by economic or geo-political factors. Extreme revanchist ideologues often represent a hawkish stance, suggesting that desired objectives can be reclaimed in the positive outcome of another war.
Revanchism is linked with irredentism, the conception that a part of the cultural and ethnic nation remains “unredeemed” outside the borders of its appropriate nation-state. Revanchist politics often rely on the identification of a nation with a nation-state, often mobilizing deep-rooted sentiments of ethnic nationalism, claiming territories outside of the state where members of the ethnic group live, while using heavy-handed nationalism to mobilize support for these aims. Revanchist justifications are often presented as based on ancient or even autochthonous occupation of a territory known by the German term Urrecht, meaning a nation’s claim to territory that has been inhabited since “time immemorial“, an assertion that is usually inextricably involved in revanchism and irredentism, justifying them in the eyes of their proponents.
