The cover of Newsweek for the Christmas issue is a blaring headline, above a picture of Vladimir Putin, screaming: “Putin is Preparing for World War III,” followed by “Yeah, That’s Bad News.” Germany’s Bildzeitung yesterday ran a similar fantasy, reporting on the assessment by two unnamed NATO officials that the recently completed Zapad 2017 military exercise conducted by Russia and Belarus was a rehearsal for a full scale Russian assault on Europe, with 100,000 troops (it was actually in the 10-20,000 range) planning to occupy the three Baltic states first, attacking by air key infrastructure in Germany, Sweden and Finland, and firing Iskander missiles into Poland from Kaliningrad. National Public Radio, funded by the U.S. government, yesterday conducted an interview with Russian dissident Garry Kasparov ranting about Putin as a dictator with no support from his population, and praising Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper for saying this week that Putin “knows how to handle an asset, and that’s what he’s doing with the President.” [Interference in a foreign election, anyone?]
Psycho? Paranoid? What is clear is that the British and their assets in the US and Europe are hysterical about President Trump’s continuing effort to establish friendships with Russia and China. To stop him, they are taking measures to prepare the populations of America and Europe for a war with Russia, a war which would very possibly mean the end of civilization as we know it. This is the entire purpose for the ongoing coup attempt against President Trump by traitors working on behalf of British intelligence through the Mueller “Russiagate” witchhunt.
Both Russian and Chinese officials reacted very sternly to the National Security Strategy released by the White House Monday, prepared by National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and his team. Russian Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov called it an “imperial” document, claiming that any economic or military strength shown by Russia and/or China is a direct threat to the United States. The documents claim that progress by Russia and China is “infringing upon world order,” said Peskov, “is obviously interpreted as a unipolar world reduced to America’s interests and needs only.” China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Hua Chunying, refering to the Security document, said that “the development achievements scored by China are universally acknowledged and it is of no avail to attempt to distort the facts on the part of anyone or any country.”
Trump himself spoke at the release of the annual National Security Strategy, rather than the usual practice of the National Security Advisor, who oversees its production, introducing it to the press. In his speech, Trump refused to describe either China or Russia as enemies or adversaries (as the report itself does), but only as competitive “rivals,” and insisted that he would “attempt to build a great partnership with those and other countries, but in a manner that always protects our national interest.” Trump has, just in the last week, held two substantive phone calls with Putin, and, as EIR (practically alone) has reported, Trump conducted a visit to China last month that formed a close friendship with Xi Jinping and an expanding economic connection to China and its Belt and Road Initiative.
But, as Helga Zepp-LaRouche insisted yesterday, Trump must be given the strength to go beyond “competition,” beyond the geopolitical outlook that traps western leaders in a zero-sum, winners-vs-losers mentality. He must be given the means to grasp the New Paradigm which is now expanding across the globe, driven by China’s New Silk Road, based on a win-win view of international relations, and a concept of the common aims of Mankind. This is the concept created by Lyndon and Helga LaRouche after the fall of the Soviet Union, to end the imperial division of the world into warring factions once and for all. The fifty years of creative proposals by Lyndon LaRouche for a new world economic order, touching every corner of the world, is coming into being through the Belt and Road. The US and Europe are stubbornly clinging to the bankrupt old order, the “free market” myth sold by the British Empire for nearly 300 years — despite the fact that the American Revolution itself soundly defeated that imperial construct, and established a new system based on credit to create a productive future, rather than a dictatorship of money and debt.
There is no time to lose in returning the west to that American System, designed by Alexander Hamilton and advanced by Lyndon LaRouche. The tax bill passed by the U.S. Congress yesterday creates one and a half trillion dollars in new debt, but simply pumps that money into the economy without direction, where it will continue to feed speculation rather than expand the real economy, as did the trillions of QE money-printing over the past 10 years. If the same credit were to be extended under an American System of directed creditary expansion, the US economy could be totally transformed relatively quickly. This is the essence of LaRouche’s Four Laws, as explicated in the new pamphlet released this week by LaRouchePAC: “LaRouche’s Four Laws & America’s Future on the New Silk Road.” The population is angry and looking for direction. This pamphlet, together with the LaRouchePAC dossier exposing Mueller’s coup attempt, are the means to provide that direction, and to give President Trump the means he needs to succeed in his stated goal — to make America great again.
