If You Like London's Ongoing Coup Against Trump, You're Gonna Love Thermonuclear World War III

Leading Congressional Democrats stooped to new lows on March 4, sending a letter to the White House demanding that they turn over all documents and information regarding President Donald Trump's public and private communications with Russian President Putin, alleging that those contacts may prove that Trump is not acting "in the national interest." They even say that Trump may have modified U.S. foreign policy, due to those communications—which, in their warped view, means that Trump is a Russian puppet.

In other words, they are saying on behalf of their British masters: President Trump, you are off script—at least the one we always provide for American Presidents. Your views are deviating from the accepted British policies. We will treat the U.S. like the proverbial "banana republic" and overthrow its government, because we don't like who the American people elected and what he is doing.

These Democrats—led by the likes of Representatives Schiff, Engel and Cummings—have no patriotism, no fatherland, no concern for the truth. They are marching to a different drummer. And in so doing they are trying to stop any conceivable cooperation, or even communication, between the U.S. and Russia, at exactly the point where that is desperately required to prevent the outbreak of thermonuclear World War III. There is currently no significant dialogue between the United States and Europe, or with Russia.

The planet is sleepwalking into World War III, Helga Zepp-LaRouche emphasized yesterday. The world is at the edge of a "global showdown;" the trans-Atlantic financial system is likewise at the brink; and there are currently no structures in place in the West to brake that process. The Russian government keeps emphasizing that, with the U.S. pulling out of the INF treaty, if the U.S. and NATO now proceed to deploy intermediate-range missiles into Europe, Russia will be forced to do the same. And that will dramatically lower the threshhold for war — including by simple error or miscalculation.

In all of this, the utopian intentions of the British and their American allies are faced with a serious problem in getting the world to go along with their insane policies: hard reality cannot simply be wished (or threatened) away.

  • 1) Putin's Russia has refused to cave to the blackmail, and has made it clear that no one will survive a thermonuclear showdown.

  • 2) The London-centered trans-Atlantic financial system is a dead duck, and the Chinese-led Belt and Road Initiative is a far more attractive alternative.

  • 3) The global mass strike process that ushered in a wave of anti-Establishment governments and political movements over the last couple of years, has only been getting stronger—in Italy, the U.S., Hungary, Mexico, and beyond.

It is that global context that now shapes the upcoming election campaign period in the U.S., Zepp-LaRouche stated today. The strategic goal of the LaRouche movement is to bring the U.S. into the New Paradigm that is taking shape around China's New Silk Road policy. Either the U.S. works with China and Russia, or nothing will function, Zepp-LaRouche stressed. And none of that will happen unless we ensure the aesthetic education of the population, especially the youth who are now being destroyed and bestialized by rampant Green ideology and suicidal Malthusianism. "We have to go into the hornets' nest and save these young people from going crazy," Zepp-LaRouche insisted, and provide them with a Renaissance of classical culture and a new sense of identity and mission as human beings. This was the life's work of Lyndon LaRouche, and it is now more urgent than ever.

That is why, Mrs. Zepp-LaRouche concluded, the exoneration of LaRouche and doing justice at last to his ideas, and freeing the Trump Presidency from the British coup, are one and the same victory.

Global Showdown: Putin Suspends Russia's Obligations Under the INF Treaty

Russian President Vladimir Putin formally ordered a suspension of Russia's obligations under the INF Treaty, as he said he would do after the United States had pulled out of the treaty. The brief presidential decree stated:

"Proceeding from the need to take urgent measures in connection with the violation by the United States of America of its commitments under the Treaty ... I hereby resolve ... to suspend the implementation of the Treaty Between the United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics on the Elimination of Their Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles of December 8, 1987, until the United States of America rectifies its violations of the said Treaty or until it expires."

The Chairman of the Federation Council's Foreign Affairs Committee Sen. Konstantin Kosachev explained on his official Facebook account on March 4 that Putin's decree only suspends Russia's compliance with the INF treaty, but does not terminate the document.

"I am sure that unless forced to do so ... Russia will not aim its missiles at European targets, command and decision-making centers in the U.S., which is what Putin spoke about.... Russia is not giving up and hopes that our Western counterparts will show common sense, though it has been a futile hope in recent years. Do missiles have to be deployed for the European public to wake up like it did in the 1980s? An anti-war movement did a miracle then and the hope for a miracle (when there is nothing else left to hope for) dies last."

Senator Kosachev continued:

"Until the very last moment, Russia was trying to preserve the Treaty, calling for an open dialogue on its future and even allowing military experts and journalists to see the controversial missile the U.S. talked about when giving reasons for its withdrawal. Alas, at some stage it became obvious that Russia was not the real reason, and the U.S. simply wanted to pull out of the Treaty."

Russia's ambassador to the U.S. Anatoly Antonov addressed how dangerous the situation now is, telling a March 4 meeting at the Stimson Center in Washington, D.C.:

"We are very much concerned that after the decision of the United States to withdraw from INF, missiles could be deployed on the territory of European allies. We will be forced to deploy our missiles, and here you will see that the whole territory of European countries will be covered."
