Zbigniew Brzezinski has died at age 89.
He was head of the National Security Council during the Carter Administration, and as such, proposed, a policy to buy a civil war in Afghanistan because he thought that it would hamstring the Soviets.
He was right, but he also lit the fuse that created al Qaeda and its ilk.
I don’t think that he deserves to be in hell for indirectly causing 911, he could not have predicted that.
He deserves to be in hell for what he successfully accomplished: Creating a Vietnam for the Soviets in Afghanistan.
With the Vietnam war having ended only a few years prior, he knew what that meant, because there were somewhere around 2 MILLION civilian deaths in during the Vietnam war.
He knew that he was unleashing a cycle of unspeakable violence and brutality on the people of Afghanistan, but he did not care, because he hated Russians.
He was a war criminal.
Of course, we have to acknowledge that the buck stopped for these policies with Carter, who someday will share a place in hell with him.
