LaRouche: 'Most Momentous Weeks in Modern History—We Must Now Take This Moment'

September 14, 2015

Within the next two weeks, Russian President Putin will arrive in New York with a proposal for creating a truly international coalition to crush ISIS and the other barbaric terrorist organizations spawned by the Bush-Cheney-Obama criminal wars of destruction. Russia's military initiative is already being launched in Syria, leaving President Obama and his White House team in utter confusion, exposed by Putin's brilliant flanking operation, which would make Gen. Douglas MacArthur proud. Some in the White House and the State Department are taking actions to build a blockade around Syria to stop Russian humanitarian and military assistance — an act which would rapidly turn all of Syria over to the barbarians funded by the Wahhabists in Saudi Arabia.

But increasingly, leading figures in the U.S. and Europe are rising to denounce the war policy, and embracing Putin's initiative. Leading this effort in the U.S., Lyndon and Helga LaRouche, joined by former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark and former U.S. Senator from Alaska Mike Gravel, addressed a conference in Manhattan, mobilizing the citizens of New York and the nation and the world via the Internet— for action in these upcoming "most momentous weeks," as the UN General Assembly convenes in New York. "We must now take this moment," said Mr. LaRouche,

"of this new international assembly, which is fully aware—its best people are fully aware—of the implications of this situation, now. What we must organize around in the United States, in particular, but throughout the world, is to prevent the launching of a thermonuclear war."

In Germany, a dramatic turn is taking place, first in Germany's decision to open its arms to the waves of refugees driven out of northern Africa by Obama's murderous wars and the terrorists they spawned, and today by Chancellor Angela Merkel openly declaring that "Germany and other Western European powers need to work with Russia as well as the United States to solve the crisis in Syria."

In Russia, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov previewed the speech to be given by President Putin at the UN. In very clear terms, Lavrov said that Putin will identify, first, the danger of the West's imperial effort to restrain the emergence of new centers of economic and political power; second, the West's intentional cooperation with terrorists in order to "achieve some narrow geopolitical objective"; and third, the use of unilateral coercion and sanctions, outside of international law, "under the influence of the American psychology," to force regime change against targeted nations. Lavrov added that President Putin will speak about the "crushing of the world economic space."

This initiative creates the capacity to achieve the necessary measures to stop the war and create a new world paradigm based on the common aims of mankind—the removal of President Obama through the 25th Amendment, the shutdown of Wall Street through Glass-Steagall, and the implementation of the World Land-Bridge together with America's natural allies now represented by the BRICS nations.

Lavrov Previews Putin Speech, Targets Obama's Crimes

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov previewed President Putin's speech at the UN in an interview with Russia's First Channel TV on Sunday.

He said this is "not a routine" UN meeting, because it is "a jubilee session." Putin will address Russia's views on key issues.

First on the list is the U.S. effort to prevent the rise of the BRICS nations (expressed diplomatically):

"[f]irst of all [are] the systematic problems, emerging in connection with the attempts to restrain the objective process of formatting of a new multi-polar world order, which could reflect the objective formation of new centres for economic, financial might and for political influence,"

Lavrov said, as translated by TASS.

Second, U.S. cooperation with terrorists:

"From this come the topics we all know: fighting terrorism, which should be free of double standards, terrorists cannot be divided into good and bad, it is useless to suppose it may be possible to cooperate with some of those `bad' extremists in order to achieve some narrow geo-political objectives."

Then, U.S. unilateral imperialist policies:

"Besides, there is the problem of unilateral means of coercion, and not only against the Russian Federation.... [the] Western counterparts, first of all under the influence of the American psychology, are losing the culture of dialogues and diplomatic settlement."

"The Iranian nuclear programme was an outstanding and extremely rare exception," Lavrov said, while in most cases, which continue to emerge in the Middle East and Northern Africa, they "are trying to use measures of force, direct interference, like it was in Iraq and Libya, thus violating decisions of the UN Security Council, or to use sanctions."

They impose some political process, he said, on the domestic situations, "be that in Yemen or South Sudan," and try to control it from the outside. Lavrov concluded:

"This approach, if it were more firmly based on agreements of the parties, not only on advice from outside, could be more viable. As soon as such a system begins 'slipping,' which is inevitable in cases of imposed solutions, they immediately take out their 'sanctions truncheons' in the desire to punish those who would not observe their approach,"

"President Putin will be speaking about it and about the problem of crushing of the world economic space, as now, in the framework of the WTO, we do not have effective progress in talks on universal approaches to new spheres of economic and technological relations between countries...He will also touch upon certain detailed aspects, like Syria or the Ukrainian crisis. All the crises of the kind develop from systemic problems in the attempts to freeze the process of forming the poly-centre world."


Lavrov: U.S. War on ISIS Is Not Genuine

The war on ISIS is being sabotaged by "other aims" in the mind of Obama's forces, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in an interview with Channel One TV, as reported by TASS Sunday.

"To exclude the Syrian army from fighting Islamic State is absurd," he said. "Syrian armed forces will be the most effective military force on the ground."

Lavrov added that when there was a question of destroying chemical weapons a year ago, Assad was considered a legitimate president of Syria and his actions were welcomed in UN Security Council resolutions.

"A year passed and he stopped being legitimate, because the threat is now not chemical weapons or substance but a terror menace," Lavrov said, describing that as an ideologized approach.

"I hope I would not fail anyone by saying some of our counterparts, members of the coalition, say that they sometimes have information about where, at which positions, are certain IS groups, but the coalition's commander—in the U.S. naturally— would not agree to deliver a strike," he said.

"Analysis of the coalition's aviation causes weird impressions," he said. "The suspicions are other than the declared goal of fighting the Islamic State—there is something else in that coalition's goals," the minister said. "I do not want to make any conclusions—it is not clear what impressions, information of higher ideas the commander may have—but signals of the kind are coming."
