but there it's part of the headlines now dotty after making inroads in sweden europe's far right parties are setting trip to the next target the freedom party capitalizing on a wave of islamophobia immigration fit when voters through a controversial computer game. world leaders are in new york to assess where they stand if it's about global poverty and on the u.n. millennium summit where the promise is obvious that especially since countries say the deep recession is two thousand and fifteen products reach. the power of the moment
12:31 am
a russian scientist claims people can use thinking as therapy he says he's developed a device which captures the energy field which humans generate until they see something like what disease intensive. he's advised u.s. presidents and american foreign policy for decades brzezinski speaks. about dangerous times from the cold war right up to the modern day war on terror his interview is coming up next. doctor's uber group brzezinski is perhaps the most influential figures in u.s. foreign policy has advised u.s. presidents for decades and served as the national security adviser under the carter administration he sits down now with r.t. dr brzezinski thank you so much for joining us we do appreciate this opportunity it's very nice to be with you it's been nine years a sense nine eleven and there are still no signs of osama bin laden in your book
12:32 am
the grand chessboard you write for america the chief. geo political prize is eurasia america's global primacy is directly dependent on how long and how effectively its preponderance on the eurasian continent is to staines is that why we're in afghanistan to sustain our global supremacy nowhere in afghanistan before because of nine eleven. nine eleven involved a horrendous crime against the american public and it's called for measures designed to make certain that that doesn't occur again american role. continent of europe asia it's much more benign it involves alliances with some key countries it involves improvement in relations with some pretty was some time going it's so it should not be confused with the operation of the gander star which was a very specific historical motive very specific objective now i want to ask in an
12:33 am
interview with a french magazine in one thousand nine. hundred. ninety s. according to their analysis of what you said the dismantling of the soviet union was to a degree more important than quote some stared at muslims and that you don't regret it do you stand by that statement now yes although that version of so-called interview was not really an interview the interview was an extensive interview which was supposed to be translated and sent to me it was never was and then excerpts from it to a sort of amalgamated and published but basically the facts are they're correct united states decided to provide sort of a covertly funding to the i've got resistance when it became clear that the soviet union was big getting to be more actively and directly. to venture away when it did intervene directly that was expanded and continued under republican
12:34 am
administrations after the president carter left all. this in turn the resistance in afghanistan led directly to the collapse of the soviet union and that removed from the international scene the horror of a possible nuclear war between soviet union and america. has made possible the kind of reconciliation but it's now underway in eurasia but more importantly it paralyzing. the dilemma of paralyzing danger but hovered over the entire international community so the threat of the soviet union such as you're mentioning right now with of course much more important than the threat we say we have now with the so-called war on terror well clearly i mean look in the event of a war between the soviet union and the united states i was involved in the decision making process that would be provoked by an attack i would call for
12:35 am
a response so we knew exactly the nature of the threat that we're all facing within a few hours literally within a few hours about eighty five to twenty million people there with its numbers eighty five to one hundred twenty million people would have been dead in the united states and the soviet union. there's just no comparison between that and terrorism which was to you know to dangerous and horrible particularly the victims but in terms of scale it's simply not the same ball park let's talk about the future implications of that decision that was made all those years ago. what did you expect the mujahideen what you're calling the afghan resistance to do with the weaponry that the u.s. and other countries provided to them after the soviet union fell did you expect this weaponry to be given. back the civil war which insinuate after to lead to the formation of what we have now which is the taliban but i think the problem you know
12:36 am
has to be looked at closer historical perspective the. war lasted almost a decade with a terrible brutal war with the soviet union the way it is not going to be killed close to a million guns they drove forty five million guns out of the country. so the process of consolidation the rehabilitation of the understand those bombs to be prolonged. and the west unfortunately roughly ten years after the attack started and then the soviets left did very little to rehabilitate afghanistan and the taliban phenomenon i wrote was several years after the soviet union departed. the taliban it was not involved in fighting. against the soviets to drive out the foreigners from. the capitalized on the opportunity to develop in afghanistan after the end of the war when it was largely ignored by everyone else to weapons
12:37 am
you know that it's tradition of being armed individually the weapons are provided most a very simple weapons mostly there with few exceptions the most guns could handle without difficulty so you don't believe that the funding of the indian led to the formation of the taliban today no i mean i look look look what the osama bin laden himself said. some of them describe the reasons why he engaged in terrorism against the west and the fact that so. international terrorists the taliban was involved in imposing a. commit evil concept of suicide. but unfortunately it gave a haven to al qaeda osama bin laden and al qaeda had global aspirations and engage in global terrorism we'd be having this conversation now if we didn't expect the soviet union to the former soviet union to invade prior to our funding.
12:38 am
and so i knew it was already in full. directly into the sunset several years by the time to funding started the funding started at a time when the soviet union was already making preparations to invade afghanistan did you think that that would provoke the the so far i have no way of knowing but i was assuming they would go in because they were going in you know it was evident there was an escalation of soviet involvement and by the time the funding started the soviet union was already involved quasar militarily with guns there i get back to this this idea from your book that eurasia is the spirit importance chess player if you well for. the united states you also mention in your book that you're a just just a chess board out much of the struggle for global primacy continues to be played and the most immediate task is to make certain that no state or combination of states gain the capacity to expel the united states from eurasia or even
12:39 am
diminishing if it's only its decisive arbitrary rule now which states at the moment would you say are threatening the us role there and here asia well first of all i think one has to take into account that the soviet union is no longer around so the american soviet competition which in many ways was largely over greater control over your regime is finished and we also know how much more important participant in this sort of distribution of power across your asia that is china so the nature of so to speak the competition the rivalry or the game has changed it's much more now a question of maneuver political accommodation. balancing to make certain that no one dominates this continent and particularly no one who is imbue it with a global missionary zeal as the soviet union was so i think the nature of the
12:40 am
relationships now on the eurasian continent is fundamentally different. it provides for much greater opportunity of some accommodation we've seen accommodation developing still timidly but developing between russia and the united states and that's an important development that we have a significant relationship with china is that i'm screaming european union japan and others are becoming involved so i think it's a much more so to speak balanced and potentially more stable and certainly that's hostile. kind of relationship so i want to switch gears to another region that were influential on the middle east with the israeli palestinian conflict now you helped draft a letter with with lee hamilton that suggested that hamas should be part of this equation what do you make of the current day peace process the one that's taking place right now hamas is not part of that equation how far do you think they'll get
12:41 am
in finding a solution to the problem a two state solution ultimately i think it would be very difficult so it will disappear totally the more extremist parties on both sides. would have. told you people were against yourself and so at some stage maybe not right away but at some stage the sort of extremists will have to be drawn into the dialogue because otherwise you don't undermine do you predict that the obama administration before the next election cycle comes that they will engage mosques in this discussion and i'll take it as such prediction because that would be wonderful headline there is no basis for making such your prediction because how can. it so precisely a specific historical event but in some fashion if there is going to peace we all know this everyone involved knows that. hamas will have to be involved in some
12:42 am
fashion syria and israel will have to be involved in a joint direct dialogue and some fire. that hezbollah will have to be fitted into the process so we're dealing here with more or less known pieces that will have to be at different stages drawn into a process that has to be a lasting one but in present circumstances for the negotiations to begin by the most moderately inclined participants on both sides makes sense i'm wondering if you could also now switch to iran since that's been a very big topic now for actually decades. iran has seen defiant despite sanctions and despite other threats coming from outside forces including some of their allies remain defiant do you think that it will eventually lead to airstrikes on their nuclear facilities well i certainly hope not. because i don't think a wider war in the region is to be desired and the u.s.
12:43 am
should not support israel if they choose to do that independently i think a wider war in the region is not desirable but we have to be conscious of the fact that it is avoidable would a possible war on iran if it is launched the threat and america's. standing in eurasia i think a war in the region it will spread and of all the america whoever starts it and i think that's not in america's interest i don't think it's in the region's interest i don't think it's in the interest of the international community dr brzezinski thank you so much thank you very greatly appreciate it nice to talk to you as to talk to you as well. when the news is not enough. when it's something really crucial when you want to get down to brass tacks women in special coverage. is trying the latest
