"Former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski publishes a book, The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives, in

states that for the US to maintain its global primacy, it must prevent any possible adversary from controlling that region. He notes: “The attitude
of the American public toward the external projection of American power has been much more ambivalent. The public supported America’s engagement in
World War II largely because of the shock effect of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.” He predicts that because of popular resistance to US
military expansionism, his ambitious Central Asian strategy can not be implemented, “except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely
perceived direct external threat”."
