British Apoplectic that the U.S. Could Join the 'Common Destiny of Mankind' With China and Russia

January 16, 2017
Meeting with President of the People's Republic of China Xi Jinping and President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, October 15, 2016 in Benaulim, India.

Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived in Switzerland today, both for a state visit with that nation and to deliver the keynote address to the Davos World Economic Forum on Jan. 17. There is a special irony to Xi's much-awaited address to that body: Davos is perhaps the emblematic international forum of the dying imperial order which is rapidly being replaced by a New Paradigm under the leadership of Xi and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

An article in Xinhua today previewed some of the central themes that Xi is expected to address, regarding the content of that emerging new order. "A community of common destiny, a shared home for humanity. Since Xi first proposed the concept in late 2012, it has gone on to shape China's approach to global governance," Xinhua wrote. The Belt and Road Initiative, the concept of win-win cooperation, and "a new security concept" to foster universal security, are all part of Xi's policy. Xinhua quoted Tanq Qifang, a researcher with the China Institute of International Studies, explaining: "The concept of a community of common destiny transcends all sorts of differences in human society and targets greatest possible benefits for all."

Having everything to lose, the British Empire is nothing short of apoplectic about U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's statements that he intends to normalize relations with both China and Russia, as he once again made clear in a Jan. 13 interview with the Wall Street Journal. The British are wildly exposing themselves to try to cripple Trump, and to torpedo any rapprochement with Russia, in particular. As the London Guardian confessed, the British "fear a deepening relationship between the U.S. and Russia under Trump risks leaving Britain out in the cold."

Lyndon LaRouche today commented that, "the way he [trump] is going ahead right now, there's going to be a big change internationally. Now, it's not Trump alone. It's the other elements in the system that are coming together to bring a force into play which will dominate the planet. Not because they are using fists, but because they are using brains. I've always preferred brains to fists," LaRouche noted.

Helga Zepp-LaRouche elaborated that what the British "are trying to attempt against Trump is a color revolution." Trump is now being subjected to a campaign of lies and "fake news" similar to what the British orchestrated covertly for decades to target Lyndon LaRouche as their mortal enemy. There is one stroke that can be taken to put an end to that color revolution, Zepp-LaRouche stated: Indicate that what was done to Lyndon LaRouche was the greatest injustice, for which the United States as a nation has paid dearly for decades, and immediately implement LaRouche's Four Laws, beginning with a return to FDR's Glass-Steagall.

She continued: That is because around the world, at the highest levels of government, as we have been told directly and repeatedly, "Lyndon LaRouche is viewed as the only American they can trust--simply because he has proven to be a world citizen as well as an American patriot. He has always been on this level that Xi Jinping is now talking about," of the community of common destiny of all mankind, Zepp-LaRouche stated.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

SUPPORTING MATERIAL


President Xi To Expound His Vision of a 'Community of Common Destiny' During Switzerland Visit

In the coming days, during his four-day (Jan. 15-18) visit to Switzerland, Xinhua reported, President Xi Jinping will expound on his vision of this world as a "community of common destiny." Xinhua said that in his New Year's speech, Xi had dwelt on this vision and is expected to send that message again when he speaks at the United Nations Office at Geneva on Jan. 18. According to Xinhua, since Xi first proposed the concept of a "community of common destiny" in late 2012, "it has gone on to shape China's approach to global governance, giving rise to proposals and measures to support growth for all."

Commenting on Xi's concept of "community of common destiny," Tang Qifang, a researcher with China's Institute of International Studies, said: "The concept of a community of common destiny transcends all sorts of differences in human society and targets greatest possible benefits for all." Xinhua added: "This is a very advanced notion born out of changing world conditions, and an embodiment of the Chinese aspiration to share peace and development with the world."

Another academic, Wang Yiwei, Director of the Institute of International Affairs and the Center for EU Studies at the Renmin University of China, pointed out that "the community of common destiny is a concept created by China." "Although the West and the UN also had similar mottos, the community of common destiny is a greater and broader concept. Apart from environmental protection, it also covers the economy, politics, diplomacy and security," Global Times reported Sunday.

Wang noted globalization, which has benefited some developed countries and its elites, needs reform. Global Times concluded: "The way out is the One Belt and One Road initiative, Wang said, which will make more developing countries and those stuck in the lower classes have new opportunities to share China's growth, so China can make the international community support and understand China's rise and the concept of the community of common destiny."



Brits Try To Poison Trump-Putin Relationship by Falsely Announcing Reykjavik Meeting within Weeks

Yesterday's Sunday Times of London reports that Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin have agreed to meet within a few weeks in Reykjavik, Iceland, to take the first steps on improving relations between the two countries. Both Sean Spicer, Trump's press secretary, and Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, quickly denied the report. Spicer tweeted: "100 percent false." Peskov told RIA news agency that "So far there have been no talks about any meeting."

The Russian Embassy in London hit the nail on the head, telling RIA that the Sunday Times story was "an attempt by the Britons to undermine Donald Trump's Presidency. Apparently, they will continue this right till the last moment."

In its coverage of the Sunday Times account, the U.K. Guardian pretty much confirmed that the British are doing everything in their power to torpedo any U.S.-Russian rapprochement under Trump: The news [of a Trump-Putin meeting] is unlikely to be welcomed by senior figures in the British government, who fear a deepening relationship between the U.S. and Russia under Trump risks leaving Britain out in the cold. It is understood Downing Street expects Theresa May to visit Trump at the White House in the second half of February. Britain has called for sanctions against Moscow over Putin's aggression in Ukraine and Syria. It is understood that British intelligence has sought reassurance from the CIA that U.K. agents in Russia will be protected when intelligence is shared, the Times reported.

"A British intelligence source with extensive transatlantic experience said U.S. spies had labelled Trump and his advisors' links to the Kremlin problematic. 'Until we have established whether Trump and senior members of his team can be trusted, we're going to hold back,' the source told the Times. 'Putting it bluntly, we can't risk betraying sources and methods to the Russians.'"
