Operation Zeus: Showdown

February 25, 2015

Lyndon LaRouche stated today that the global pattern of British actions indicates that they are acting in a way which can only be attributed to a drive towards early thermonuclear war. The lightning-fast Watergating and resignation of Malcolm Rifkind, the Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament and a heavyweight of the British Establishment, for his opposition to escalating confrontation with Russia, means that the British are readying for war, LaRouche said. They are getting rid of any and all impediments to that war—that is the conclusion to be drawn from the Rifkind ouster.

That British war drive is also evident in developments around Ukraine and Greece—two strategic confrontations where temporary, uneasy ceasefires currently exist, but where the underlying issues have by no means been settled.

For example, in Ukraine, President Petro Poroshenko is actively shopping for arms to be used in their war against Russia. At the IDEX international arms exhibition in Abu Dhabi, he announced that he had signed a defense deal with the UAE, and that he hoped to do the same shortly with the United States:

"We are in a very practical dialogue, and we hope in the very near future, we [will] have a decision to help us attain defensive weapons."

Meanwhile Andriy Parubiy, the commander of the Maidan "self-defense" contingent who is now head of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, is in Washington meeting with Pentagon officials and various senators, to get a commitment to send arms to Ukraine. Parubiy, like his controller Victoria Nuland, of Obama's State Department, are open advocates of Nazi policies, including confrontation with Russia.

We know what Nuland is up to, LaRouche commented today; and we don't think it's human. In fact, Obama and his policy allies on the Republican side, are the single greatest source of danger to the continued existence of the United States itself. That is something that has to be stated explicitly, and widely—from the policy center of the LaRouche movement's organizing in Manhattan, radiating outward to the rest of the country and the world.

In the case of Greece, the European Union is hell-bent on crushing the Tsipras government's refusal to implement any more Troika austerity policies on the country, and is demanding that they capitulate or be subjected to financial and economic carpet-bombing, and expelled from the Euro zone.

Why should they stay in the Eurozone?, Lyndon LaRouche shot back today. The Greek government should tell the EU:

If you're going to screw us, why should we be part of that? There is a limit to what any self-respecting nation will submit to, and we've reached that limit. What you are demanding is a fraud—and you know it. The British Empire has been bleeding us for years, and they have no right to do that; it is immoral. We have shown that we want to work with you, we have given you that option; but if we don't get satisfaction, then we are under no obligation whatsoever to continue with the fraud. We cannot submit.

LaRouche specified that not everyone in Europe is aggressively pursuing the British Empire's scorched earth policy towards Greece, but there are some particularly active people who must be singled out and stopped. That is the case with German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, and Eurogroup Chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem, as well as Spain's Finance Minister Luis de Guindos—who was the director of Lehman Brothers in Spain and Portugal from 2006 to the bank's blazing demise in 2008. And now he presumes to lecture Greece on proper financial policies?!

But Greece has options against these hit-men, LaRouche emphasized. If they crush Greece the way they are planning to, they will sink the whole system. So what Greece has to say, LaRouche continued, is that the conditions being demanded of them are fraudulent. The debt is fraudulent; Greece doesn't actually owe anything. The numbers that are being concocted are just another case of crooked bankers' arithmetic—a practice that is so fraudulent, that it even gives a bad name to mathematics!

The point is, LaRouche concluded, that Greece doesn't owe anything, and yet the British Empire, in their drive for war, are out to drown them, to kill them, and to crush them. It is time for Greece to make their move, and let the banks know that they have nothing coming. They are finished.

In conclusion to a discussion with associates Tuesday night, LaRouche said,

Obama is actually using terrorists, international terrorists, this is where the threat of war's coming from. Because the British don't have the capability, in and of themselves, to launch this kind of warfare. Virtually no one in Western Europe is in position to prepare for such warfare. The U.S. is capable of supplying weapons, of serious weapons, major weapons. But the United States does not want to be responsible for that process; they want to be the backup people.

Therefore, the way the United States would operate, under Obama in particular, would be to get other agencies to launch the war. Because all you have to have is an agency which will start the warfare, launch the kind of warfare that's involved, and this includes nuclear war, thermonuclear warfare. And thermonuclear warfare exists in other parts of the world, and the supply can be directed to other parts of the world. And therefore, they would go at Russia and China as the major targets for destruction. And they wouldn't care what happens to the rest of Europe. They would simply say, "we survived"; because anyone who's going to run this kind of war is going to say, if they have any capability whatsoever, they're going to calculate, and the calculation would be, can we start a piece of war, which would destroy most of Europe.

That's exactly what Nuland is doing. Her role is to go out into Europe, and to create a situation inside Europe, which will cause a destruction of Central Europe.

Britain is not capable of doing anything now, except politically, — politically and financially. So therefore, the normal situation, of any kind of quasi-sanity, would come in that direction. It's to set a trap for the European homeland, with wasting certain parts of North Africa and Central Asia — and China. And the objective will be to destroy China, to destroy Europe and China.

Rifkind To Resign from British Parliament's Intelligence Committee

Her Majesty is using political terrorism against any opposition to her plans for World War III. In true British fashion, after less than a week of a scandal generated by the Empire's controlled media, a hitherto leading political figure is all but destroyed and forced out of a very important position. This is the case with MP Malcolm Rifkind, a former Foreign Secretary, who has now been forced to resign as chair of the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament, which is about to publish a report (before Parliament is dissolved on March 30) looking into privacy and security issues arising out of the leaks by the NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Rifkind, who has been a high- profile fixture in British politics for four decades, also announced that he would not be running for re-election.

Rifkind, along with former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, had been entrapped by undercover journalists from the Daily Telegraph and BBC Channel Four for influence peddling, a charge that could be leveled at half the British Parliament. Both of them have expressed concerns over the possible escalation of the conflict with Russia. The attack on them comes within days statements by former MI6 head Sir John Sawers expressing similar concerns.

Kiev Regime Shopping for Weapons; Poroshenko Announces Purchases in Abu Dhabi

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko was in Abu Dhabi Tuesday for the IDEX international arms trade show, where he announced a defense deal with the UAE, to obtain weapons. Though the details are as yet unspecified, the deal was reported as a breaking story this morning by Defense News.

This is the latest expression of how Victoria Nuland's Nazi regime in Kiev is not satisfied with peace in southeast Ukraine, and is going around the world shopping for weapons, probably, in part, to replace the vast amounts of equipment and munitions that it lost in the Debaltsevo cauldron, but in reality, to drag the world into war with nuclear-armed Russia.

Poroshenko also indicated Tuesday, that he hopes for a deal with the US.

"We are in a very practical dialogue, and we hope in the very near future, we have a decision to help us attain defensive weapons," he said. "I want to stress that the defensive capabilities for the Ukrainian Army are only to defend our territory, to keep our independence, to keep our sovereignty. We do not have any plans to attack anybody."

All Poroshenko would say about the UAE deal was that the two countries signed "a very important memorandum about military and technical cooperation." The UAE military is largely, but not exclusively, equipped with American and French-supplied equipment.

It is highly likely that there is far more than meets the eye in this UAE arms deal. Recall that the UAE, along with Qatar, played a key role as a pass-through for the British-Obama policy of sending arms to Libya, and from there on to Syria. The Ukrainian-UAE deal has the distinct odor of something similar— i.e., de facto arming of Ukraine by Obama, with an effort at plausible denial.

Also present at IDEX is US Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Frank Kendall. While there's no report that Kendall and Poroshenko might be meeting, Kendall was to have met with the Ukrainian arms-buying delegation at the show. "I expect the conversation will be about their needs," Kendall said yesterday, according to Defense One.

"We're limited at this point in time in terms of what we're able to provide them, but where we can be supportive, we want to be."

Kendall doesn't have the authority to negotiate arms deals, so he'll be "primarily in listening mode, trying to understand what their needs are," he said. Russia has a very large display in the exhibit hall, but it's on the opposite end from the Ukrainian exhibit.

Andriy Parubiy, a co-founder of the neo-Nazi Svoboda party and of one of the paramilitary groups that became the Right Sector spearhead of the February 2014 coup, is scheduled to be in Washington this week. Parubiy took clear aim at the US in an interview in Ottawa, Monday, announcing that he expected Canada to pressure the US on the question of arms sales to Ukraine. "We're sure that Canada's voice is authoritative and carries a lot of weight," he said.

"So the U.S. has to make this decision [about providing weapons], but Canada is kind of the authoritative voice that can push [for] that. It can influence the U.S. decision."

While in Ottawa, he met with Foreign Affairs Minister Rob Nicholson and James Bezan, the parliamentary secretary to the defense minister, as well as members of Parliament.

Robert Parry Denounces Nazi Ukraine Regime for Inciting Nuclear War

Noted investigative journalist Bob Parry, who broke the original Iran-Contra scandal and now runs the website, published on February 23rd a devastating indictment of Washington's creation of the Nazi regime in Ukraine, as leading to a possible thermonuclear war with Russia.

Under the headline "Ready for Nuclear War over Ukraine?" Parry begins by reporting on the demented statements of Ukraine's Deputy Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko calling for confronting Russia even though it is "a nuclear state," including Prystaiko's demand that
"What we expect from the world is that the world will stiffen up in the spine a little."
Parry asks:

"Why should such a pedestrian dispute [between Ukraine's eastern and western regions] justify the possibility of vaporizing millions of human beings and conceivably ending life on the planet?...there is a madness in the Kiev regime that the West doesn't want to recognize," a regime that displays a "cavalier attitude about dragging the world into a nuclear catastrophe."

Parry goes on to describe, in accurate detail, the overtly Nazi nature of leading forces in Kiev, including the notorious Azov batallion.

"No European government since Adolf Hitler's Germany, has seen fit to dispatch Nazi storm troopers to wage war on a domestic population, but the Kiev regime has and has done so knowingly."

Parry also documents the immoral cover-up of these facts by major US media, including the New York Times and the Washington Post, although he stops short of pointing the figure of those who actually put the Nazis in power: Victoria Nuland, Barack Obama, and their superiors in the British Empire.

Chinese, Russian Foreign Ministers at UNSC Denounced Unilateralism

The foreign ministers of Russia and China spoke out strongly against unilateralism and attacks on sovereignty, at February 23rd's U.N. Security Council special conference on "Maintaining International Peace and Security: Reaffirm the Strong Commitment to the Purposes of the Charter of the United Nations." This put them directly at odds with the wild geopolitical rantings made by the Ambassadors to the U.N. from the United States, Samantha Power, and from Britain, Mark Lyall Grant. Thus, the meeting was a venue for a direct clash between the BRICS dynamic toward prosperity and peace, and shrill demands for military actions, and even changing the U.N. Charter.

The event was convened by China, president of the Security Council for February (which rotates monthly), and brought together representatives from some 80 countries, who spoke for five minutes each. China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi presided.

On the sidelines, Wang met with Russia's spokesman, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, after which the two of them reiterated the commitment of their nations to work together to,
"maintain high-level exchanges, continue to support each other, and strengthen communication and coordination on significant international and regional hotspot issues," reported Xinhua today.

Wang, in his conference addess, hit directly at US unilateralism, according to Xinhua. He said:

"In China's view, any unilateral move that bypasses the Security Council is illegal and illegitimate. The Security Council needs to take more precautionary measures to forestall conflict and act in a timely manner to stop warfare so as to restore peace and promote reconstruction as early as possible."

Xinhua reported,

"Wang said China calls upon all countries, major countries in particular, to step up awareness of cooperation and abandon the mind-set of confrontation, working hard to resolve major problems hampering the world's peace and regional development through consultations." Wang said, "The old mindset of confrontation should be discarded, and consultation and cooperation among the parties should be encouraged if we are to address the major issues affecting world and regional peace and development."

Wang pointed out that no country in the world is entitled to impose its own will on others or to topple the legitimate governments of other countries. "We should make sure that justice, not hegemony, will prevail in the world," he said. As BRICSPost noted today, with understatement, Wang's point was "an apparent jibe at the US."

Wang said,
"We should work with each other with a win-win, not zero-sum approach. We call upon all countries to come together to share rights and obligations and uphold justice while pursuing interests."

Lavrov's speech was equally tough; he included specifics on the Washington/London record, as in the case of "Western" intervention and destruction in Serbia, Libya and Iraq.
