Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski joins Morning Joe to continue the discussion of his latest book "Strategic Vision," how the U.S. should conduct its relationships with Europe and the East, why the U.S. should avoid a confrontation with China, and why starting or supporting a war with Iran doesn't prove a leader is tough.
He had this to say during the segment:
“…I don’t think China is going to disappear just to please us. And I don’t think we can outbid the Chinese in some respects. But I think a relationship with China in which we are both guided by a recognition of our reciprocal interest in a stable relationship. By a recognition of the fact that we’ll both suffer if we get into hostile conflict. I think it’s possible, especially if we do some of the other things I’ve mentioned in the Far East, so that our role in the Far East is seen as constructive. What I fear is this enormous pressure in this country to demonize the Chinese, to blame them for all of our own shortcomings.”
