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 and your book 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 it's 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 its cold for measures designed to make certain that that doesn't occur again american role. continent of europe asia it's much more benign involves alliances with some countries it involves improvement in relations with some previous sometime going to. show it
should not be confused with the operation of afghanistan which was a very specific historical motive and a very specific objective now i want to ask in an interview with a french magazine in one thousand nine. hundred of the mujahideen prior to the former soviet union's invasion an excellent idea according to their analysis of what you said the dismantling of the soviet union was to a degree more important than quote some stirred up muslims and that you don't regret it do you stand by that statement now yes although the version of the 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 an excerpt. sort of amalgamate it unpublished but basically the facts are that the correct united states decided to provide sufficient sleep over the funding to the i've got resistance when it became clear that the soviet union was beginning to be actively
him directly and eventually when it did intervene given to me that was expanded and continued republican structure to president carter that. in turn the resistance that direct the collapse of the soviet. and. from the international scene of the possible real war so far. has made possible the kind of reconciliation but it's now underway in eurasia but more important to remove a paralyzing. dilemma at paralyzing the danger that hovered over the entire international community so the threat of the soviet union in your 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 it was the fall and. decision
making process that was called by the time i would call for 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. eighty five to twenty million people would be repeat the numbers eighty five to about one hundred twenty million people would have been dead in the united states and the soviet you. just no comparison between that terrorism which was the. horrible particularly the victims but in terms of scale it's simply not the same ball park but some of the future implication. that decision that was made all those years ago. what did you expect 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. the civil war which insinuate after to lead to the
formation of what we have now which is the taliban i think the problem you know has to be looked at closer historical perspective that war lasted almost a decade terrible. for the soviet union and waged against them it killed close to a million guns. in. their country. so the process of consolidation the rehabilitation of understand. under western fortune. roughly ten years after the attack started and then the soviets left did very little to rehabilitate. the taliban phenomenon. so years after the civil part. the taliban was not fighting. against the soviets. before. that the
you know. after the end of the war when it was largely ignored by everyone else as to weapons you know the. tradition of being armed individually the weapons are provided mostly very simple but it's mostly there are a few exceptions. most could handle it without difficulty so you don't believe that the funding of the dean led to the formation of the taliban today no and if i look look look what the osama bin laden himself said. describe the reasons why he engaged in terrorism against the west. i was involved in imposing a no interest in that people concept of suicide. but unfortunately it gave a haven to al qaeda osama bin laden and al qaeda had global aspirations and engaging in global terrorism would we be having this conversation now if we
didn't expect the soviet union to the former soviet union to invade prior to our funding. and so on he was already involved directly through the years by the time to funding started the funding started at a time when the soviet union was already making preparations. did you think that that would provoke the so far i have no way of knowing but i was assuming they would go in because they were going 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 with the turkey with the guns and i get back to this this idea from your book that eurasia is the spirit important chess player well for. the united states you also mentioned in your book that you're a just us the chessboard out much the struggle for a 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 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 the soviet union is no longer around so the americans saw that competition which in many ways was that our great control of eurasia 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. political accommodation and. balancing to make certain that no one dominates this continent and particularly no one. with
a global missionary zeal as the soviet union was so i think the nature of the relationships now on the. continent is fundamentally different. provides for much greater opportunity of some accommodation we see an accommodation developing still timidly but developing between russia and the united states and that's an important development we have a significant relationship with china as it didn't scream european union 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 the israeli palestinian conflict now you helped draft a letter 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 in finding a solution to the problem a two state solution ultimately i think it would be very difficult to. totally the more extremist parties on. the. floor again. so at some stage maybe not right away but it sounds. sort of extremists will fall into the dialogue because otherwise don't undermine it do you predict that the obama administration before the next election cycle comes that they will. engaged in this discussion and it is such protection because of the wonderful headline there is no basis for making such a perfect because how can. i say that specific historical events but in some fashion if there is a case you don't know that everyone in the book knows everybody that hamas will
have to be involved in some fashion syria and israel will have to be involved in a joint direct dialogue in some fashion 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 if it is 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 we 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 their threats coming from outside forces including some of their allies they've remained 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. 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 that and it is a loyal would a possible war on iran if it is launched the threat and america's. standing in europe asia i think a war in the region 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 i greatly appreciate it nice to talk to you if the talk to you as well.
