Zbigniew Brzezinski: Russia’s military operation in Syria jeopardize the credibility of the United States

Air strikes that Russia allegedly caused by US-backed Syrian factions - is a demonstration of Russian military incompetence or proof of “dangerous desire” to emphasize Moscow’s political impotence of America, writes in his article for the Financial Times, the former adviser to the US President Zbigniew Brzezinski.

In these fast-developing events, says the author, Washington has only one real opportunity to protect their interests - to convey to Moscow’s demand that Russia should abandon military operations, which are directly reflected in the “American assets” in the Middle East.
