"Ah, Liberal Realism"

How serious is Zbigniew Brzezinski to see the umm, peaceful, benign Iran’s nuclear power initiative reach fruition?

This serious, as Jonah Goldberg writes:

Zbig Brezinski thinks we might have to shoot down Israeli planes.

Daily Beast: How aggressive can Obama be in insisting to the Israelis that a military strike might be in America’s worst interest?
Brzezinski: We are not exactly impotent little babies. They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?
DB: What if they fly over anyway?
Brzezinski: Well, we have to be serious about denying them that right. That means a denial where you aren’t just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a Liberty in reverse.
