"The big upside of Zbigniew Brzezinski's analysis of global affairs is that it doesn't fall for simple arguments... Brzezinski is not afraid of complexity. This latest book shows his alertness to the myriad twists and turns of history and the breadth of his geopolitical understanding. He is as comfortable writing about Belarus as Brazil. Where others see black and white, he identifies the many shades in between."
--Financial Times, 20th February, 2012

Brzezinski is an expert in knowing Chinese intentions which de describes as: (1) to reduce the dangers of security of encirclement due to US security links with Japan, South Korea and the Philippines, (2) achieve a favored position in the East Asian community (3) consolidate with Pakistan as a counter weight to India (4) gain an edge on Russia in Central Asia and Mongolia (5) integrate Taiwan in China (6) be the favored economic partner to natural resource countries and (7) achieve a dominant export position in Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. That is the reality the USA faces. What to do?
The USA should use a two pronged approach, establishing a Western Alliance that covers the area from Vancouver to Vladivostok and become an appreciated "partner' of the rapidly growing Asian countries, China, India and Indonesia whilst maintaining excellent relations with Japan and South Korea. This will not be easy, as tensions between these counties will rise. The main task of the USA would be with diplomatic efforts and economic engagement to prevent these tensions from leading to violent conflict. This would involve, for example, "promoting" a genuine reconciliation between China and Japan. The USA should avoid getting involved in any violent conflicts in the Asian region, as that would destroy her usefulness in conflict prevention and containment.Read more ›
