LaRouche: Obama’s Words Are a Threat to Kill
By Paul Gallagher and Diane Sare
A grim report published overnight by NBC News holds that outgoing President Barack Obama used the "red phone" in early October, directly to threaten a military attack on Russia over alleged e-mail "hacking" and attempts to influence the American election. Obama's subsequent Dec. 15 interview statement reserving the right to "attack, at a time and place of our choosing," has been followed by the assassination of a diplomat crucial to Russia's effort with Turkey to end the Syria civil war, as well as a bloody rampage by a truck into a Berlin Christmas market which killed 12 and injured dozens. A vacationing Obama has maintained a stony silence on the murder of the Russian ambassador in Ankara. This is both the most blatant of Obama's numerous attempts, over years, to threaten both Russia and China; and the most dangerous. There was a coup attempt in Turkey in July in which, at least, close relatives and former colleagues of this assassin were involved. Also involved—both Russia and Turkey estimate—NATO.
Russian Ambassador Karlov had played a crucial role in not only Russia-Turkey relations, but in the preparation for the Russia-Iran-Turkey talks on the future of Syria now that Aleppo has been liberated. Clearly the assassins’ intention was to split Russia and Turkey apart on their Syria framework agreement. That objective, at the least, has not succeeded; the talks continued as planned. Both Russian and Turkish representatives have stated their understanding that the intent of this assassination was to sabotage precisely this crucial collaboration toward stabilizing Syria.
The leading trans-Atlantic nations and their Gulf allies—all facing economic stagnation and threat of another financial crash—are grotesquely mistaken about China, India, Russia and the new economic paradigm of rapid economic and scientific progress around them. Their arrogant and disassociated leaders, typified by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande, not to mention the criminally insane U.S. President Barack Obama, cannot even figure out why the Brexit vote occurred or why Hillary Clinton lost the U.S. elections, or why most nations’ leaders on the planet now prefer to orient toward China and Russia.
Thus a pompous Jordanian prince, now U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights (a Human Rights Commission which is chaired by Saudi Arabia!), has demanded that Philippines President Roderigo Duterte be tried for murder for his war on drugs.
It is Obama who should be on trial! For years, every Tuesday, Obama has personally selected many thousands of people to be killed by drones, including as many as 200 people in one strike, as in Somalia last August. His Libya invasion, his arming Saudi Arabia for war on Yemen, his arming of jihadis and ultimately terrorists in Syria, have cost the lives of tens of thousands of people—including one head of state, and one U.S. Ambassador in Libya.
In contrast to President Duterte of the Philippines, who is attempting to eradicate the drug plague imposed upon his people, Obama's own drug policy in the United States has become—due to both inaction and legalization—horribly lethal, with American drug overdose deaths tripling to over 50,000 per year during his presidency.
His actions now, threatening Russia and China directly, portend mass killing.
In response to Obama’s threats of “action” against Russia and President Putin—an escalation unseen during any time of the Cold War—Lyndon LaRouche stated clearly today, “Obama has been a killer as President. Hillary Clinton went along with it, that's a fact. It is also the British. And it is NATO. They will kill as many as they can, to get their way. And to stop them, as President Putin now says, you will have to make them pay.”
And this killing is all to stop a new economic paradigm, initially known as the “BRICS policy,” which seeks to span the continents with new corridors of transport, power, communications, new cities; to return to the scientific frontiers of space exploration and fusion technologies we have abandoned.
Now is not the time to wait on the sidelines and “see what Trump is going to do.” President Obama is determined to sabotage any and all potential for a peaceful and productive future, even before President-Elect Trump takes office. It is time for the American people to stop denying the truth about President Obama’s murderous actions and try him for the crimes he has already committed before he kills again.
