British Escalate With a Hoax in Syria; This Propaganda Could Lead to World War

London media and the British-created “White Helmets” launched a crude new hoax over the past 24 hours, a “chemical weapons attack on a hospital in Douma,” Syria, as war propanda aimed at U.S. President Donald Trump. Though military intelligence experts saw through the hoax, and Russian officials had predicted it precisely, today’s British celebration was typified by the Sunday Telegraph headline, “Donald Trump Condemns Vladimir Putin after Syria Chemical Attack Kills Dozens.” At the same time Reuters and BBC, which originated the flaming story, acknowledged they had no evidence any chemical attack had taken place, except reports and (very dubious) videos sent by the jihadi group Jaish al-Islam and the pro-terrorist “White Helmets.”

Helga Zepp-LaRouche said yesterday morning that this new hoax, following immediately on the faltering British war propaganda against Russia over the Skripal poisoning case, is extremely dangerous for the world — but can be rejected.

She also noted that this propaganda is exactly in line with the open rebellion being incited against President Trump’s public order for an early U.S. completion of military operations in Syria, as in the Washington Post‘s lead editorial and Sunday front-page lead.

“Britain does not conduct one pre-war propaganda operation [the Skripal poisoning claim] and then stop when that falters and doesn’t produce full confrontation,” Zepp-LaRouche said. “No, it escalates the same pre-war propaganda mobilization. If this is not immediately stopped it can have the greatest consequences, including a final world war.”

She pointed to the Russian Foreign Ministry’s warning: “Military intervention [i.e., a new NATO missile attack] under false & fabricated pretexts in Syria, where Russian servicemen stay at the request of the legitimate government, is absolutely unacceptable and may trigger the gravest consequences.” And to Gen. Evgeny Buzhinsky (ret.), now of the Russian Center for Policy Studies (PIR Center), who on BBC accused Britain of lying, which could lead to “real war — the last war in the history of mankind.”

But also to American Defense Intelligence Agency veteran Col. Pat Lang (ret.), who called these chemical attack hoaxes “news feeds from the propaganda apparatus of the rebels, much of it supported financially by the British government’s foreign ministry, and delivered through MI6. What on Earth motivates the U.K. in this devilment?”

Helga Zepp-LaRouche had just spoken April 7 to a conference of the Schiller Institute and foreign press in New York, where she placed the threat of a new crash of the London-centered financial system squarely behind London’s escalating war propaganda. “Why”, she asked, “is there a demonization of President Putin coming from the same people who are also demonizing President Trump and President Xi Jinping? This is the same foolishness which already led to the Second World War and could easily trigger a Third World War. … What is behind that is … desperation because the financial powers of the City of London and their Wall Street collaborators see clearly that their system is failing….”

“Imagine,” she said, “if we could mobilize the American people to exert pressure on President Trump … and he would accept the offer of Xi Jinping to cooperate with the New Silk Road … and also the European countries would eventually recognize — most of them are doing it already — but even the remaining ones would recognize that the cooperation with Russia, with China and the other nations who already have joined the Belt and Road Initiative — that this would be much more in their self-interest, than the present course of the British confrontation with Russia and with China.”

Lyndon LaRouche: The Immortal Talent of Martin Luther King, Jr.

What was it that allowed Martin Luther King to wield his mind and personality as such a powerful and effective force for justice; that his words and deeds now live long after him and still boldy stir the human soul? Why did his assassination leave such an irreplaceable void in the movement he led? In this January 19, 2004 speech in Talladega, Alabama Lyndon LaRouche truly captured, we believe, Dr. King’s passion; the same force which King himself refers to in his famous “From the Mountaintop” reflection on life. We recommend listening to Lyndon LaRouche’s tribute and then listening to “From the Mountaintop.” The experience is a wonderful fugue. Replicating the passion both men describe here is really the only true way to honor Dr. King.

The British Empire Is Un-Masked, But Desperate

Dr. David Kelly. “Suicided” after testifying against Blair’s “sexed up dossier” that lead to the Iraq War.

The British Imperial Lords are in a state of shock. Their frantic effort to save the Empire came crashing down Tuesday when the scientists at Porton Down refused to lie for the Empire — refused to say that the nerve agent in the Skripal case came from Russia. Recall that it was David Kelly, the head of the Defence Microbiology Division at Porton Down and a member of the inspection team in Iraq, who blew the whistle on Tony Blair’s “sexed up” dossier claiming that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. As a scientist he refused to lie. Kelly was “suicided” as a result, and the illegal and genocidal war went on.

This time, neither George W. Bush nor Barack Obama are around to provide cover for the Empire’s lies. President Trump, to the dismay of the British and American oligarchs and press whores, has refused to say (or tweet) a word about the Russian role in the Skripal case. He spoke to Putin afrter the incident without mentioning it, and, just yesterday, told the press yet again that “getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing.”

The Empire is exposed, and badly wounded — but not yet dead, and therefore capable of anything to save itself. Lyndon LaRouche has for fifty years warned Americans and others that the British Empire is not a thing of the past, but is at the center of the financial looting and speculation which has driven the western financial system to the brink of ruin, while manipulating the “dumb giant” in Washington to fight colonial wars on its behalf, first in Indochina, then in the Middle East. He has also warned that the Empire would prefer a global war, even a thermonuclear war, rather than see their Empire disappear.

Helga Zepp-LaRouche today focused attention on this deadly reality. The Russiagate campaign collapsed, and its perpetrators in MI6 and in the Obama intelligence team are now facing criminal charges for their treasonous acts. Theresa May’s controllers then desperately launched the Skripal incident, and demanded that the Western nations join in blaming Russia, with no evidence whatsoever. Only half the EU nations went along, and, while Trump allowed his Administration to expel Russian diplomats, he himself laid no blame on the Russians, and announced that Moscow could replace their diplomats.

But now, the U.K.’s own chemical weapons experts have exposed the evil and dangeroous lying of Prime Minister May and her buffoon of a Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. Hysteria reigns in London today. Will the Empire take even more desperate actions, by starting a war? Will they use the impending collapse of the multi-trillion dollar speculative bubble in the western financial system, which they created, to that end?

The LaRouche platform — for restoring American System methods and scientific progress in the U.S., and for the U.S. to join the New Silk Road, working with China and Russia in global nation building, as the United States once espoused — must be embraced and fought for now, today, by every person of good will. The Empire is near defeat, but more dangerous than ever.

That is why this organization was founded, and the hard fought victory is within our grasp. As Helga said today: “Stay in reality — that’s what makes you sane, that’s what makes us unique. They never imagined that a genius like Lyndon LaRouche would be around to counter them.”

In A Paradigm-Shifting World Situation, the Skripal Case Is Now Backfiring on the U.K.

The poisoning of two Russian citizens in England last month, aimed with such bombast by the U.K.’s May government at isolating Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and trapping the British-targetted President Donald Trump, may wind up leaving May and Foreign Minister Boris Johnson with egg on their faces.

The situation is shifting. The new reality of the great benefit of China’s New Silk Road for nations all over the world, and the benefits of great-power cooperation for peace as understood by President Trump, is making May’s all-out attack backfire. Already stung when just half of the EU nations signed up for expelling Russian diplomats and other Mayhem against Russia, the British have been mortified by President Trump’s “less than full support,” as their media have put it.

In fact Trump’s press secretary has confirmed again April 2 that he did invite President Putin to a summit “at a number of potential venues including the White House.” President Trump now has three crucial summits in the offing — with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Putin, and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un — which could shift the world situation for the better. The second and third are furiously opposed by the British and all brands of American and European neo-cons and liberal imperialists. But this too is backfiring.

Now with today’s report by the U.K.’s own Defense Science and Technology Laboratory at Porton Down that it has not established evidence for Ms. Mayhem’s Russian poisoning case, tomorrow’s executive session of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) — whose rules the U.K. has flouted to rush to “lead the attack” on Russia — is put in a new light. A few courageous Britons had said the scientists were not happy being demanded to “produce” for a political witchhunt, and were proven right.

Moreover, “China and Russia are developing closer ties,” not least because “Western countries are putting political pressure on Russia [in the Skripal case] and the U.S. is provoking China into a trade war,” the Global Times wrote yesterday. China has been entirely evenhanded and wanted OPCW procedures followed, but has sent an official delegation to the Seventh Moscow Conference on International Security beginning April 4, with 95 other nations.

We have seen the “Russiagate” attempted coup against President Trump made to backfire by the same new reality, combined with a long mobilization by the forces of Lyndon LaRouche’s movement in the United States. Now the FBI is, at long last, being investigated and cleaned out at the top.

But we cannot forget that the trans-Atlantic financial systems are again ready to crash. And sitting on that volcano, we cannot make slow and long-term plans to realize the new paradigm of the Eurasian New Silk Road. It must be on the table for the United States as well as Europe now. That starts by instituting or reinstating Glass-Steagall bank separation — as China already does with its commercial banks — to break up the Wall Street and London behemoths before they pull us into another collapse nightmare.

As Helga Zepp-LaRouche warned today, those governments that have fully backed Britain’s March Mayhem against Russia, are a danger to their own people and to world peace. President Trump’s going ahead with the summits, including with President Putin, is crucial and must be supported.

But the progress he promised Americans, including great projects of new infrastructure and space colonization, require implementing Lyndon LaRouche’s proposed “Four New Laws To Save the Nation.”

The ‘Spirit of the New Silk Road’ Is Defining Reality

Two developments this week make the point that reality in today’s world is the “spirit of the New Silk Road.” All else—the geopolitical and economic confrontations—are doomed and dangerous. Our task is to organize for this truth to succeed.

Firstly, on April 4, the extraordinary session of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) will convene on the case of the Skripal poisoning in England, amidst growing international agreement, that London has tried to bum-rush national leaders to submit to British domination, with the anti-Russia hysteria. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called it out explicitly at a Moscow press conference, saying, “Leaders of a whole number of countries are asking questions…it’s only too obvious that our British colleagues have lost their sense of reality.” He elaborated on motive, that “Britain’s special services… are known for the license to kill;” and otherwise, that the Theresa May government was in trouble over not delivering on Brexit.

Russia’s representative to the OPCW, Alexander Shulgin, said yesterday, that on April 4, “we plan to come out with one more initiative at the extraordinary session.” He would not discuss it further, but it will follow the 14 questions on the Skripal affair put to Britain by Russia over the weekend.

Meantime, the London crowd is furious that President Trump, himself, has not fallen into line against Russia, as Britain demands. This was expressed by The Economist of London in a March 30 article, complaining that Trump’s Twitter account “was silent as 60 Russians were ordered out of this country. Indeed, Mr. Trump has never breathed a word of criticism of Mr. Putin.” They write that Trump “continued his near total-silence about Russia” even when he gave “a rambling and wide-ranging speech in Ohio” last week. No wonder the British are upset; it now comes out that Pres. Trump had even raised Washington, D.C., as a possible meeting place, in his phone call with Pres. Putin on March 20.

Second, this week marks a new, low point in the worsening trade confrontation, promoted by the geopoliticians between the U.S. and China; as well as promoted in the form of sanctions against Russia. Today China activated its imposition of tariffs on 128 U.S.-produced imports, to the tune of $3 billion, in response to the U.S. imposing tariffs last month, on imports of that value, of Chinese steel and aluminum.

China’s Commerce Ministry released a statement today stressing that, the United States has refused to talk. After the U.S. made its March 23 announcement of tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum, China on March 26 called for trade talks. Despite U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin saying at the time, that there could be talks, nothing at all happened—which is pointed out in today’s China Ministry statement. Now, the U.S. has more anti-China tariffs—$50+ billion—under consideration.

Instead of this confrontation, China reiterates in its statement, talks must take place. This is in line with what President Trump, himself, expressed, during his election and early months of office, when he committed to end the destruction of the U.S. economy wrought by decades of bad trade deals. These came about directly as a result of the Wall Street/City of London practices during the GATT/NAFTA/WTO years, hurting all nations involved.

Now the opportunity is at hand, and urgent, to break with this destruction, by going with the reality of the ‘spirit of the New Silk Road.’

British Empire War Plans Already Backfiring

During this meeting, participants held a detailed exchange of opinions on foreign policy issues, including reciprocal measures against a number of states that expelled Russian diplomats and shut down consulates. 3/30/2018 en.kremlin.ru

The Russian Embassy in London sent a list of 14 questions to the British Foreign Office which, in themselves, demonstrate the total fraud of the British declaration of Russian guilt for the nerve agent attack on two Russian citizens in Salisbury. Among the questions: Why has the U.K. presented no evidence; why have they broken several international laws and protocols to prevent access to the victims; what antidotes did the U.K. have on hand for the nerve agent, and how did they obtain them; do they have a control agent of the so-called Novichok; has the U.K. developed the agent themselves?

But also included in the list of questions is the revelation, not previously known, that the French are deeply involved in the investigation. Why, the Russians ask, and on what grounds? What U.K. legislation or international protocols allow for the French to be engaged in an attack on Russian citizens on U.K. soil, and what have the French been given access to?

Similar lists of questions went to the French Foreign Ministry and to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

These are questions which can and must be taken up by all interested parties — and it can be definitively stated that every person on Earth is an interested party when the British are provoking a conflict between nuclear powers.

President Trump has continued to say nothing against Russia since the scam was launched, including in his rally in Ohio last week, while he held a long productive phone call with Putin without mentioning the phony charges against Russia. Although he did allow his administration to take the drastic measures against Russian diplomats and to close Russia’s consular facility in Seattle, the war-party spokesmen in both political parties and in the press are furious that he won’t personally join in the hysteria against Russia.

The Chinese took note of Trump’s personal silence, while Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang called on Russia and the U.S. to resolve the issue: “Russia and the U.S. are influential countries in the world, who share big responsibility for the world’s peace and security. We hope they will appropriately solve the dispute via dialogue based on equality and mutual respect.”

The absurdity of the British accusations, claiming certainty with absolutely no evidence, in a manner which pushes the world into an existential crisis, comes at a time that President Trump is emphasizing the destructive results of an earlier British scam — Tony Blair’s launching of the Iraq war based on similar lies, provoking destruction across Southwest Asia and the mass exodus from the multiple war zones, leaving millions homeless and aggravating the economic crisis in Europe with a mass refugee crisis. George W. Bush and Barack Obama swallowed the British lies gladly, willing to commit crimes against humanity to prove their allegiance to the Mother Country.

Not so President Trump, who repeatedly points to the $7 trillion wasted in these illegal and unjustified regime-change wars, killing thousands while the U.S. physical economy was rotting. He could (and should) add that speculators in London and on Wall Street were simultaneously looting additional trillions from the real economies of the western nations.

India is increasingly working directly with China and Russia on productive investment projects, both among themselves and in third countries, especially in Africa. The work is being integrated through the international New Silk Road project initiated by Xi Jinping, and long promoted by Lyndon LaRouche.

On October 10, 2009, Lyndon LaRouche delivered an address to the Seventh Annual Session of the Rhodes “Dialogue of Civilizations” Forum in Greece, defining an agreement of the “Four Powers” — Russia, the United States, China, and India — as the necessary combination required to end the global economic destruction unfolding across the West. These four great nations, he said, must “agree, as a group of countries, to initiate and force a reorganization of the world financial and credit system — under those conditions, with long-term agreements, of the same type that Franklin Roosevelt had uttered before his death, in 1944, under key nations, the intention of Roosevelt all these years later, could have been realized, and we could do that, today.”

This insight, and this program, is even more urgent today, but it is also more possible, due to the New Silk Road paradigm sweeping the world, and the potential that President Trump will carry out his intention to work with Putin and Xi Jinping to achieve this new paradigm. All patriots, and all citizens of the world, must act to this end.

Class #5: Harmony of Confucian and Western Philosophy

 

Broadcast LIVE at 2pm EDT on March 31. Taught by Mike Billington, EIR Asia Desk. The role of Confucianism in Chinese history is key to understanding China’s current leadership in the creation of the New Paradigm. Within the depths of Chinese history, this goes back to the conflict of Confucius and Mencius against Daoism and legalism in ancient China, the role of Zhu Xi and the Song Dynasty Confucian Renaissance in the 11th and 12th centuries, and the Confucian views of Sun Yat-sen in the 20th century. This Confucian tradition is in harmony with the humanist currents of western thought, typified by the contributions of Socrates and Plato, Nicholas of Cusa, and Friedrich Schiller.
