The rapid escalation of tensions between the United States and Russia over the past few days’ developments in Syria has brought the entire planet into a very dangerous, delicate situation. We are closer now to the outbreak of thermonuclear world war than we have been at any time since Barack Obama and his clone Hillary Clinton were driven out of the White House.
Notwithstanding some useful steps away from the brink in the last 24 hours—including the U.S. military announcement that they are taking “prudent measures to reposition aircraft over Syria,” in light of the Russian warning that their most advanced radar systems would “lock on” to any and all flights in Syrian airspace west of the Euphrates; and Australia’s decision to suspend their participation in Coalition flights in the region altogether—the situation remains on a hair-trigger. There are repeated statements coming from various parts of the Trump administration and Congress that the American shooting down of the Syrian jet (over their own national territory!) was justified; that “we will not hesitate to defend ourselves or our partners if threatened” similarly in the future; and that Syria effectively is to be partitioned.
None of these policies are those of Donald Trump—not as a candidate, and not as President. They are the policies of the very forces that are out to overthrow his Presidency, or assassinate him outright. They represent layers within the intelligence establishment, the military, the media, and Wall Street financial interests—all run from the top by the British Empire—who have launched these operations to prevent Trump from acting on his stated agenda. Well-informed sources have reported that Trump is besieged and distracted by the interminable, groundless legal threats being arrayed against him—which is exactly their intention.
We must escalate our mobilization to awaken the U.S. population to this danger, Helga Zepp-LaRouche told associates today, and to stop the coup-in-progress against Trump. With popular backing for the urgently needed changes, which we must organize, Trump can be freed so that he can act to create an entirely new set of economic and political relations with China and Russia, in particular.
But no piecemeal approaches will work, Zepp-LaRouche stated. A total replacement of the bankrupt trans-Atlantic financial system is required, with a new one built from the ground up, along the policy lines specified by Lyndon LaRouche in his Four Laws: a global Glass-Steagall banking reform, and the creation of a Hamiltonian credit system to foster high-tech infrastructure and related development projects. This is exactly what China has launched with its era-shaping Belt and Road Initiative, which the U.S. must now join.
There is no clearer example of this than the situation around New York City and its crumbling infrastructure. Every proposed piecemeal “fix” of one problem, only makes the situation worse elsewhere. The entire infrastructure grid of the New York region, especially transportation, has to be entirely replaced, from the ground up.
Let us take this crisis, and turn it into an opportunity, Zepp-LaRouche insisted. The problem is so deep, that it cannot be solved overnight. But if you have a plan, people will have the sense that a solution is in sight and will be optimistic and will pitch in to solve the problem. If there is only chaos, then we will be facing an upheaval—nationally, as well as in New York City.
So let us make New York the turning point in history!
