he serves isis telling thehetru. joe biden is telling the amicic people the truthth when he s ss theyey misread it. he i is thedanger.r. the danger is allththe assusutition we've been sayingg and evenhehe president is rereei with what we'e've been said in the lala fi months,, we're out of money. the deficits are unsustainable. they are based onnhehe assumptin the economy issgoing to grow at 4%4% ntt year andd over the nex decadede. it's not going too happen. at memes,s,mariria,hose deficitstsarar going to be even highghermomo cshshin even more, using thehepresisintnt's words, unsustainable. thhe b biest crisis ononically. lelet'fafacet. >> i agree with yoyou. saying we had inccometete information. i don't know. earliern the yearwe knew unememplmeme was worse. wenew the re o of e worldd was really c com aprtrt, certainly eupepe we knewhh e ecomimicgrowth was slowing sharply. i think a lot of people,

one of thehings we're going to need toexplore jointly over the nexteveral months is n we prove a do for iran to walk through where they y that we are not going to develop a nuclear wean. and you know, russia can be a very important per in that
7:41 am
process. >> that was more fromchuck todd's intervi with present obama. in russia this morning wh us nowormer national security adviser dr. brzezinski he's co-auor of the bookn' americand the world, convertions on the future of american for policy." he's also my d. >> als yourdad. dr. brzezinski, thks for being with us today since mika is now nervous, we'll take oveat this point. i'm fine. >> for no reason. let me ask you about the deal we've hrd, preliminardeal, strategic nuclear arsenals beeen russia and the ited states. what's your take on that? >> i tnk it's a veryober realistic deal. but bear in mind as far as the summit i concerned, the deal was reached even beforethe
7:42 am
suit started. andhe president a president medvedev inffec ratifiedit. the heav negotiations wereone before the meeting in mcow. the meeting in moscow was essentially a signa to the affecthat bo countries realize increasinglyhat they have to manage their relationship in a stable, predicble fashion. that's a to the good. but reay the serious discussion was the onehis morning between obama and putin. that was relately short. we don't haveoo much detail on other but i imine it was a each discussion more on the issues where we disagree. on this issue n too much ogreas made butaybe a better undersnding as to why ea side disagree with the other. >> we were watching the by langge between the two, not ly between the ime minister and our president, but also their presidt and ours, and we noced that the russians smed
7:43 am
to be going out of their way to be distant to present obama. w ch does resentiment at this stage in russian history guid their actis, guide their approach not on to america but the rest of theworld. >> that's a very good question. the basic problem in o relationship witrussia today is thatussia lost theold war and doesn't like it. and all of the consequces of that loss are ented. at unrstandable. but history cannot be undone. in the crse of the last century, jt think of the following of the british stopped by an empire. how did they accdate? by latchingnto us and maki themsees our immediate partner d there by having global influence. e freh lost theirglal role. how did ey react? lost the w in vietnam,
7:44 am
algeria, a prolonged zuc japanese lost their role. they beca very pass fist because of the shock aect that the destrtion of the war brought to them. have learned in recent yea being the only superpower doesn't mean we can do anything in the world that we ha to accommodate. the russians los an empire and they don't like it. but they have to accommodate toyota. i think we have to try to manage it in such afashion that it's not rubbed in. itoesn't make them feel worse or mke them overreact. but at the same time they caot try toundo it, becae uning it will proce new conflicts, new tensions, new veryangerous situations. >> can you tell me along those lines what is thecurrent state in i haven't heard this, and rhaps a dealas been struck. obviously were going to be putting some military equipnt
7:45 am
in poland. can you tell us e status of that right now? >> well, e agreement bween the ited states and poland is bad on this missi defense shield the united states and president sh decided to deploy in poland andhe czech republic. thpoles asart of that deal got some commitments fromhe united stes regarding occasional statning of pot missiles ipold. this is an anti-r system defense system and some assistance in the area o security. e question between the u.s. and poland now is the event th missile shield doesn't go forward ishe other part of the deal still relevant. it's initial coerns of the poles,bviously anue with the united states is to some extent obligated because the poles went along with the person plan but nothe central issue in the american-russian relatiship. in the american-russian
7:46 am
relaonship it's the general idea of the ssile fense shield. the runs are afraid in the long run our development of that capability would neutralize their ability to deteus whereas we would have the abilit to deter them. >> but i heard at the time that the reement was made bween the united stes and poland that it causedreat resentment from the russians t you're saying that's not a deal breaker, a ctral issue in these lks and a half no, i didn't say tha what i said was the sort of elements that were compensatory with the pol for going along wit don't rely bother the russians that much. what bothers the russians is the key ise of the deal, mainly the id this miil defense arrangementill be based in polandlose to them. that's what they are objecting to. they are arguing this somehow or the oer is directed agait them. it probablis notdirected against them. infact, i think we know it isn't. there issome legitimac to the
7:47 am
argue that it does enhance our overl capability ventually, maybe, to have a really viable ti-missile defense shield. >> let's bring in carloswatson. carlos. >> dr. brzezinski, i was inrested to ar ident obama a president meedev talk abo cooperation on not ju u.-russia issues but on iran and north korea o is there a reale for rus to play that russia is willing to play in allevting those nuclea owdowns, nuclear situations? >> it'sod to haverussian cooperatn regarding both. though regarding north kore the key country, bar the most important country inhat team effort, which involves the united stes, japan, south korea, china, and russia china. china that been very cautious and ger not to push too hard against the north koreans because it cou produce problems f them.
7:48 am
insofar as russia an iran is concerned russia is impoant because russia is supplyi the iranians wit hugelear plant and nuclr facility. so they are actually helping the iranians right now developheir nuclear pram. the russian attitude here probably somewhat ambivalent. on the one hnd they probabl do not want the iranians toave ear weaps eventually. on the other hand, som degree of tension between us andhe iranians is probably to russia's advantage. they have to be able to factor that into their lculus. so i don't think theare going to go too farn pushing the iranians to accommode. so basically with the iranians the ball is in our crt. were the ones who can either cut a deal wite iranians or we are the ones who can try to fashio a really punishing ostracize them. >> there w a reportin the
7:49 am
"nework times" on sund t an important group of clerics in iran declared ahmadinejad election as illegitimate. how significant is that? >> i think it's a significa crack in the uni of the ayatollah's erics in an. myense is - i think i said you befor about week or so ago, it's the beginning of the end, but it's going to be a ng, prolonged end that is to say the regime not gointo fall vry qckly but it is begning to fracture because there is a fundamenta contradiion between the nature of that regime. it's theocratic, backward, anti-historical in postur and a socie which is incrsingly modern in certain sectors. tehran i a shisticated city which has many characteristics
7:50 am
of a eupean turkey an iran r coarable. i dot think that tis regime going to inoor for a very long time. and the iranian regime stands on factor of its own strength. >> in atregion on afghanistan, thennouncement sterday that u.s. tops an ples will be abl to fly over ruia in order to supply troops in afghanistan, how significant is that? >> i thi it's aositive ep. no dbt about that. it's aositive step. i am not sure whether we will
7:51 am
transi russia with troops, and i thin it's equipment. and that's vy important. logistical support is very impoant. the russians have support in afghanistan and not becoming a liban base, because if it es, not only in al kada a potential problem for em, but central asia which is now composed of several independt republics. and many people overlook the facthat russia, which today has 140 millionple, and anywhere between 25 to 30 milln muslims. muslims o are not rusians. we hav mus inamerica, but they tend to be by and large in most ces americans. and the muslims in russia a no russns.
7:52 am
and they areothers. and the russians are very concerned that islam could become their flag the green flag around which ese people rally. >> iust want to get ur impressions and your thoughts about the death of robert mcnamara. a front piece in the "new york times" called him the moestin beential secretary. what do u think? >> i think that's not fair. he was not the architect of the r. the engineer executi it-- this does not dismiss him. an mcnamara was atechnecrat.
7:53 am
e war was a political decisionand th was madey prest kennedy and his team. mcnamaraas ficient, and maybe ruthles in wagg the war, and then he has a conscience, and he tried to do wh he ould, so to sak. and i may be psychoanalyzing too ch here, but in sense to redeem himself and car himself served as the predent of the wod bank trying tdo is a great deal to eliminate injusticed around the world, and he feltcoresponsible forit. i would not call him an architect. >> dad thank you, and i shld le you know thaty father

8:46 am
thesis of my book is a new cold war. you have to ask, what happened? why did we lose the opportunity to gorbachev and reagan ha my opinion is clinn lost it. we now took the view that we ended the cold war. >> ias not just bming bill clinton, and i was in the congress in th mid-90s, so you have to blame congress, too. and '89, through '93, '94, 5, there was socialantarchy. >> you are one of the few
8:47 am
amicans that got it right. putin was the result of this. we ask where he came from? by the way, at that time, russiame were living approximately 57 years. an that's fantastic demoaphic gures. i dot knhat throwing more money at it would have helpe i think it's what they decided to do, how tey decided to fix the cotry, on americ advice inpart. they made the wong decision. i don't know what they ught you in school, i amolder. when i went to hool were forced t take economs. and wwere taught if we were in a depression, we thr money at it and get people back to wor and now, wh thed, they shut dow the economy, and that's okay to do so in good mes. but you have to get them back to rk. >> i seems so strange that we
8:48 am
had such fore sight when it came to erny, and we foht the ench, and george senior decided to let them reunite- >> i think at that ment in time the country needed a putin position. they neededhat kind of po and struurput in place, because when ias hanging o with theseovernment officia, and one of them saidto m you know what? we were not ready for paris, and we were t ready for what resultedn thlloming down, because aum ll of a suddet was like t mob running the n runng t country. >> let's start in 1989. and this is not popular to say this at all, and i was against
8:49 am
what happened inen aman's square, and you seehow the chinese maned the capitalism vers russia. >> yeah, that was the decision made. let me say a word f the russia. 1989, they had their first ever free elections, and i s there in '89, andt was fantastithe wayussians responded to the possibility of mocracy. whengorbachev saido them,o out and vote for who you want, and go out in the streets and caaign debate. and it's the russian elite is that not caple odemocracy. r. coins, thank u so much. good to see you again. >> yeah, come back. we hav a lot to talk about. >>leasplease. >> t book is called "soviet
