When Two Systems Collide

May 6, 2015

In three days, heads of state from 25 nations will be gathered in Moscow to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the defeat of fascism. The events surrounding the May 9 commemoration will accelerate the new paradigm for mankind, represented by the BRICS and allied initiatives for Eurasian development and beyond. China's President Xi Jinping will spend three days in Moscow, Belarus, and Kazakhstan, before returning to Beijing to host India's Prime Minister Modi, whose three-day visit to China, starting May 14, will greatly advance the emerging pan-Himalayan alliance to build the New Silk Road. Egypt's President al-Sisi announced on Tuesday that he, too, would be in Moscow for the celebration, and for a separate day of bilateral meetings with Russian President Putin and other Russian officials.

An Indian delegation is in Iran, working out details for a new deep water port on the Iranian coast near Pakistan; and Japan and India have just reached an agreement to build a new joint research and development center in India. Obama is furious at Modi for taking the initiative with Iran, but there is little he can do, except rant.

The breath-taking speed with which the leading nations of Eurasia are coming together around the "one belt, one road" Eurasian Landbridge projects, will only accelerate in the coming weeks, as preparations are advanced towards the July meetings of the BRICS and Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) heads of state in Ufa, Russia.

This process of creating a future for mankind is, however, not without its enemies, centered in the British Empire.

In a shameless act of capitulation to the British Empire and their Barack Obama, French President Hollande has announced that he will not be attending the Moscow commemoration. Instead, he flew off to Riyadh, on Tuesday, to grovel in front of the Saudis, pleading for petrodollar investments in France's defense and nuclear power sectors. Hardly coincidentally, Francophone African state Senegal announced the same day that they will send 2,100 troops to Saudi Arabia, to "defend" the Kingdom against the threat from the Houthis; this, after both Pakistan and Egypt refused to cave in to Anglo-Saudi demands for cannon fodder for the war on Yemen. The Saudi indiscriminate bombing campaign against Yemen has continued. It must be remembered that the fighter planes are manned by Saudi pilots, but the maintenance and repairs are all under British control—as part of the long-running Al Yamamah program, under which the terrorists of 9/11 and ISIS are financed.

This is pure British provocation, aimed at stopping the BRICS process and somehow saving the bankrupt trans-Atlantic financial system from unavoidable extinction. With the accelerating advancing of the BRICS new paradigm, the British will resort to wars, genocide—even thermonuclear war—to stop the advancement of humanity beyond the vice grips of empire.

This is a showdown moment. After a major intervention by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and an international network of retired military flag officers from the U.S., Russia, China, India, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Britain, and France, NATO and Russia have restored the hot-line military-to-military communications that were shut down after the Maidan coup in February 2014. Repeated warnings, picking up on Lyndon LaRouche's clarion call to stop the drive to thermonuclear war, have delivered a set-back to the British.

However, this is not enough. So long as Barack Obama remains in office, the war danger is there. So long as the British pull the strings on the Saudi Monarchy, the entire Persian Gulf, Southwest Asia, Eastern Mediterranean region is on a hair-trigger for population war. The British are pursuing their New Opium War against the populations of Eurasia, by producing a new super-opium strain in the British-controlled provinces of Afghanistan. An estimated 8,300 tons of opium are projected for Afghanistan production this year, which translates into over 1,000 tons of pure heroin, targeted at the Silk Road nations of Central Asia and Russia.

In honor of the 70th anniversary of the defeat of fascism, we re-feature our three part, 2012 series, "Who We Fight", which tells the story of the British Empire's subversion of Allied forces during WWII, in an effort to lay the ground work for WWIII.

NATO and Russia Restore High-Level Communications

According to news reports from Sputnik News, Reuters, and AFP, the high-level communications between NATO and Russia that were shut down following the Maidan coup in February 2014, have been formally reinstated. According to a report, initially published in Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, the Supreme Allied Commander Europe and the NATO Military Committee have re-established communications with their Russian counterparts. The Sputnik News coverage highlighted the role of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who wants to restore "constructive dialogue with Russia."

Washington sources added that the US Joint Chiefs of Staff pressed for the restoring of the "fail safe" lines of communication, out of growing concern that the world was getting closer and closer to a thermonuclear confrontation.

Recall that April 19, Gen. James Cartwright, former Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff co-authored an op-ed in the Sunday New York Times with Russian retired Gen. Vladimir Dvorkin, warning about the nuclear war danger. And Cartwright chaired a Nuclear Zero Commission study, released last week, that called on Russia and the United States to abandon the doctrine of "launch on warning," due to the mounting danger of a thermonuclear confrontation, and the breakdown of line of trusted communication. As the LaRouche PAC documented several years ago in a documentary video, "Unsurvivable," the decision-making time from detection of a possible enemy first strike is reduced to just minutes.

European defense experts, commenting on the restoring of the high-level communications channel, also emphasized that there are critical areas of common interest between Russia and NATO, including the fight against the Islamic State, which has a large number of Chechen fighters.



Is Saudi Arabia Planning a Ground Attack in Yemen Using Foreign Troops?

The decision by the West African nation, Senegal, to supply 2,100 troops to Saudi Arabia in light of the Saudi Arabia-Yemen conflict, has raised the specter of a Saudi invasion of Yemen using the foreign troops.

"The international coalition is aiming to protect and secure the holy sites of Islam, Medina and Mecca," Senegalese Foreign Minister Mankeur Ndiaye told parliament. "The President...has decided to respond favorably to this request by deploying a contingent of 2,100 men in the holy land of Saudi Arabia," he said. Senegalese President Macky Sall said, after returning from a visit to Saudi Arabia last month, that he was considering a request to deploy troops, Reuters noted Tuesday.

The Saudi-led coalition fighter jets bombed two residential districts in the Yemeni governorate of Aden on Tuesday. The Saudi air strikes hit the districts of Mualla and Khormaksar in Aden, reports said. Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 41 days now, to restore power to fugitive President Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 3,163 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children, and has devastated the impoverished nation, causing food and medical supplies shortages.

While there are reports that some non-local Yemenis have appeared in Aden fighting for the Saudis, the unexplained closure of the airport of Najran, a Saudi town bordering north Yemen, raises questions. In addition, the Daily Star of Lebanon reported yesterday, citing the Saudi state television, Saudi Arabia has suspended all schools in the southern region of Najran, near the border with Yemen, without giving a reason for the measure.
