Francis Boyle: Brzezinski wants to break Russia up into constituent units

Pravda.ru talks to Professor Francis Boyle –(Excerpt) Feb 2015 

Zbigniew Brzezinski

Zbigniew Brzezinski

Pravda.Ru interviewed Francis Anthony Boyle, a professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law about the current political situation in the world. We asked the professor to comment on whether the crisis between Russia and the West is as dangerous as it seems to be.

[…] Why is the West convinced that Russia can be broken down with the sanctions?

I regret to say what we are seeing here in the United States is the ascendancy of two factions in this country who are against Russia and the Russians. First is Brzezinski, who was Obama’s mentor when Obama was a college student in Columbia, and Brzezinski in 2008 ran all the foreign affairs and defence policies of the Obama presidential campaign and has stacked his administration with advisor on Russia at the National Security Council comes from the Brzezinski’s outpoll CSIS there in Washington D.C. I graduated from the same Ph.D. programme at Harvard that produced Brzezinski before me.

He is a die-hard Russian hater, he hates Russia, he hates the Russian, and he wants to break Russia up into its constituent units, and, unfortunately, he has his people, his proteges in the Democratic Party and in this Administration. Second faction lining against Russia are the neo-conservatives, for e.g. this latest Brookings Institute report calling for arming the Ukrainian military in these Nazi formations which are now reflected in this latest bill just introduced into the Congress yesterday, and the neoconservatives feel exactly the same way against Russia and the Russians.

I went to school with large numbers of these neoconservatives at the University of Chicago, Wolfowitz and all the rest of them. Many of them are grandchildren of Jewish people, who fled the pogroms against Jews, and they have been brainwashed against Russia and the Russians. So you have two very powerful factions here in the United States against Russia and the Russians who are driving this policy, and I regret to report there are very few voices opposing this.

So in my assessment, the situation this is the dilemma that confronts Russia today, that confronts President Putin and it also certainly confronts me having gone to school with most these people both at Chicago and Harvard and opposing them for a generation, and all peace-loving people in America that somehow here in the United States we are going to have to figure out a way to reign {sic} these people in to avoid the direct military confrontation between Russia and the United States that very well could occur if things get out of control there in Ukraine. So it’s an extremely dangerous situation for both Russia and the united states. There’s no question about it. I haven’t seen anything this dangerous in my lifetime since the Cuba missile crisis that I personally lived through the 1962 and it inspired me to spend ten years in studying the Soviet Union Russia at the University Chicago and Harvard – two of the leading centres for training experts in this area in the United States. So it’s extremely dangerous, I could not underestimate how dangerous the situation is.
