Trump Has Fallen for a British War-Coup; Americans Must Reverse It

The President of China was literally at his side offering partnership in a rapidly developing new paradigm of productive economic growth, scientific progress and future optimism, which the depressed American population desperately need. Instead, President Donald Trump was duped by the British imperial, "unipolar world" illusion and the British obsession with getting America to go to war.

The shocking complete reversal by the President, within a single week, of his years-long strong opposition to the Bush-Obama disaster of regime-change wars, was brought about by British frauds. The fraudulent claims of Russian control of Trump have all originated in British intelligence "reports" and "dossiers," and have caused him to lose control of his own National Security Council and caused his few allies in Congress to capitulate. Throughout Trump's short presidency British officials have incessantly demanded "alliance" military attacks on Syria and new sanctions against Russia. With the President's March 30 announcements that his policy was not to "regime-change" Assad in Syria, the British and American allies like Senators McCain and Rubio went into a fury, and seized on the "Idlib chemical weapons bombing" in Syria. That itself may well have been a hoax, whose ONLY source of evidence is the British intelligence-created and -funded "White Helmets" who operate in Syrian territories controlled by jihadi extremists.

EIR Founding Editor Lyndon LaRouche has warned since the day Libyan President Qaddafi was overthrown and assassinated by a British-French-Obama coup in 2011, that these regime-change wars were marching toward the target of a world war confrontation with Russia, especially, and with China. Trump was determined to end that threat; now with his British manipulation, it has returned with a vengeance.

As LaRouche noted, now President Trump must hold a summit meeting with Russian President Putin to reverse this British world war March. Indeed, the Kremlin has said that Putin will not meet Secretary of State Tillerson in Moscow on Wednesday, although Tillerson has been holding out against the disastrous regime-change policy. There must be a Trump-Putin summit.

We are seeing the President duped by British imperialism, the imperialism we fought our Revolution against, and the Anglo-American "world policeman" dogma which President Franklin Roosevelt rejected.

The American people now have to rally against regime-change war -- as they did in 2013, when they stopped Obama from bombing Syria. But more: they must rally for the idea President Trump had started to espouse, the "American System of economy" going back to Alexander Hamilton; to Clay and Lincoln; and today meaning partnership with China's New Silk Road and carrying out LaRouche's "Four Laws to Save the USA."

That is the purpose of the Schiller Institute's two-day conference in New York City this Thursday and Friday; and the purpose of the nationwide mobilization of activists to throw pressure on the White House. Trump must clean his house of the British-agent advocates of war confrontation with Russia; and return to the campaign for the American System.

Chronology of British War Coup Against Trump and Russia

Events of the week prior to and days after the chemical weapons event in Syria's Idlib province, show a British war coup in progress against the entire previous policy of the Donald Trump presidency.

March 30: Both Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, in interviews, announced the President Obama's regime-change in Syria policy had been changed, and that forcing Bashar al-Assad out of power was not an American priority under President Trump.

March 31: Secretary of Defense Mattis held a press conference in London with British Defense Minister Michael Fallon. General Mattis praised Britain's global role and accused Russia of threatening Europe and interfering in the U.S. election; Fallon called for new sanctions against Russia.

March 31: British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who had in December called for a UK-U.S. military attack on Syrian government forces, acknowledged that the UK's investigation of "Russian election interference" in Europe had found none.

April 3 evening: The first media reports appear of bombing attacks on Idlib province which result in chemical poisoning.

April 4: President Trump was briefed via the President's Daily Brief on a chemical weapons bombing attack by Syria's government. The evidence was photographs and video of persons, including children, ill and dying from apparent chemical poisoning. The source of the evidence was the White Helmets "civil defense organization" which operates in areas of Syria controlled by armed rebel groups including al-Qaeda affiliates. It is funded by the British Defense Ministry, U.S. AID, and Dutch government -- and was started by a "former" British MI6 agent. The U.S. intelligence community clearly could not have analyzed evidence in the 14 hours since the event.

April 4 and 5: National Security Countil meetings took place. It was later reported that CIA Director Pompeo did not participate in these.

April 5: Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis twice stated publicly that the United States had to analyze all evidence and determine what had happened in Idlib, declining immediate attribution of the attack to al-Assad.

April 5: Trump told journalists, "I've been watching it and seeing it [the White Helmets "evidence"], and it doesn't get any worse than that. And I have that flexibility, and its very, very possible -- and I will tell you, its already happened -- that my attitude toward Syria and Assad has changed very much."

April 4: House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) recused himself from his committee's investigation of leaked classified intercepts about Trump's and his team's alleged "links to Russia." This was a major blow to prospects of exposing the crimes involved in leaking NSA surveillance of the President; to exposing the British "Trump dossier" of MI6 agent Christopher Steele; and to Trump. Recall Trump was furious at AG Jeff Sessions for recusing himself on the Senate side. Nunes' recusal was caused by a complaint against him to the House Ethics Committee by CREW (Committee for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington), whose funding sources are British including George Soros.

April 5: Steven Bannon's removal from the NSC Principals Committee was announced. Bannon is reported by all associates to have been opposing a U.S. military attack on Syria.

April 5: Senators Marco Rubio and John McCain both publicly held Tillerson responsible for the alleged chemical bombing attack by Syria.

April 5: Hillary Clinton said the United States "should take out his [Assad's] airfields and prevent him from being able to bomb innocent people."

April 6: CNN promoted a story of a feud between Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and Steven Bannon, and Trump's anger at it.

April 6: The decision was made, during Trump's summit with China's President Xi, to launch an attack on the Sharyat airbase in Syria. Late that night EDT the tomahawk missiles are launched.

April 7: Michael Fallan bragged about constant communication with General Mattis, briefings and discussions both before and after the strikes.

April 8: National Security Advisor General McMaster removed K.T. McFarland from the NSC. McFarland had been involved in North Korea/Asia policy decisions and had been on the Principals Committee.

April 9: Tillerson presented a "3-point plan" on Syria in an interview on ABC-TV News; he opposed regime change in general, citing the Libya disaster, and in specific on Syria.

April 9: Boris Johnson cancelled a trip to Moscow, saying that after G7 Foreign Ministers meetings in Rome April 10-11, Tillerson would go to Moscow and represent the British position. Johnson said Britain demands new "Syria sanctions" on Russia, until Russia removes all its military forces from Syria and abandons support for al-Assad.

April 9: UN Ambassador Haley, also in a TV interview, claimed American policy was now regime-change in Syria
