Small things are the start of big things ..

President elect Carter took immediate contact with representative of the PRC. The conversations where friendly and convolute. Carter was clearly pressed by his new ally to commit more energy to fight their common enemy, the USSR, forever on the march. But, a few days later this nice memorandum appeared, in this world nothing is free, especially between great powers. History have her own sense of irony, Brzezinski, our kind of guy, signed this faithful document.

15. Memorandum From the President’s Assistant for National
Security Affairs (Brzezinski) to Secretary of the Treasury
Blumenthal and Secretary of Commerce Kreps
1
Washington, March 7, 1977
SUBJECT
U.S.–PRC Trade Relations
The President has noted the sharp downturn in U.S. exports to
China which began early last year. As you know, this downturn has led
to the first U.S. trade deficit with China since U.S. import controls were
lifted in 1971.
The President would like to know what we can/should do about
this. Please let me know by Thursday, March 10.
Zbigniew Brzezinski
