I wish that I could describe my incredulousness at the appalling ignorance of a former National Security Advisor. Zbigniew Brzezinski is a doofus.
"Ignorance", or "willing blindness". I'm not sure. What I do know is that after the fall of Saigon there were thousands killed in purges, not just in Vietnam but in Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand. Pol Pot? Khmer Rouge? Hello? "It didn't happen"? Does he not remember the boat people? What were they running away from? Tax cuts? One of the people I work with is a "boat person". I'm sure she'd be glad to know that "it didn't happen".
You know, no wonder the Iran situation turned into such an utter cluster fuck in 1979, with nimrods like this in charge.
