Donald Trump, the first President in more than a century to give speeches on "the American System of economics", may now be the first President in more than half a century to warn the American population against "the military-industrial complex" while it is trying to push him to war. Even the Iranian Foreign Minister immediately reacted that President Trump had brought out something important.

In Trump's Fox News interview, on the question of whether he would hold out against war on Iran, he said, "Someday people will explain it, but you do have a group, and they call it the military industrial complex. They never want to leave. They always want to fight." This, on the eve of U.S. military and intelligence chiefs giving closed-door briefings to the Senate and House on "secret intelligence" allegedly to show Iran and "its proxies" have started attacking American interests in the Mideast and must be stopped.

The question since President Eisenhower has really always been, what is that military- industrial complex? As Trump spoke to Fox News, British special forces troops were sent on special deployments to the Persian Gulf to "counter Iranian attacks on merchant ships." The British deputy commander in Iraq was being corrected by the Foreign Secretary to make clear that the UK absolutely considers Iran to be threatening "coalition" forces there. Some London newspapers were admitting in sensational headlines that top British Intelligence officials handled memos and dossiers — false ones, the stories acknowledged – intended to destroy Trump's presidency by branding him a "foreign asset" of Russian President Putin. Why? Because he came into office promoting cooperative relations with Russia and China, and avoidance of regime-change "permanent wars".

The "American military-industrial complex" has, in reality, always been the British-geopolitical complex. In Eisenhower's time it was the Churchill circles who had owned Harry Truman and the British-Swiss-run Dulles brothers who tormented Ike and JFK. Now it is Trump's British Intelligence enemies who have been completely exposed as having tried to use dirty "intelligence" to force him out in a coup, or force him to war confrontations with the other great powers Russia and China.

Permanent war — perhaps unsurvivable war — or economic and strategic cooperation are at stake.

For half a century only one leading American figure has understood these "facts of London" and relentlessly attacked them, in defense of the American Presidency and at the expense of his own ostracism, prosecution and persecution. That was Lyndon LaRouche while he lived, and still today. His case encompasses the important issues of Trump's Presidency completely. His exoneration, for which there is now a growing mobilization by LaRouchePAC and by his admirers all over the world, can decide those issues to the advantage of mankind.
