How To End Perpetual War: Stop the Impeachment Coup!

With the focus on policy toward Ukraine in “Phase III” of the unending impeachment drive against President Donald Trump, the American people and their Congressional representatives are faced with a clear choice: perpetual war, or peace. Those elected representatives who reject war and superpower confrontation, are with few exceptions not ready for the test.

The Ukrainian government installed by a coup in 2014—and personally installed by Victoria Nuland, U.S. Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt, and Vice President Joe Biden—was riddled with fascist and openly neo-Nazi forces; imposed an immediate war mobilization against Russia; brutally repressed all opposition to this; and finished ruining Ukraine’s economy where corruption and IMF looting had left off.

President Trump since he became a candidate has wanted nothing to do with that government or its representatives; but the British and U.S. intelligence services and their fellow Cold Warriors at State and National Security Council have insisted on Ukraine as the NATO spearpoint against Russia—and are still insisting on it as they testify against the President in Rep. Adam Schiff’s impeachment circus. But President Trump welcomed Ukraine’s new President Volodymyr Zelensky, elected overwhelmingly as an outsider against corruption and for ending Ukraine’s war with Russia. As one of Zelensky’s most prominent backers put it to the New York Times last week, the impeachers of Trump want “war with Russia to the last Ukrainian.”

That is the issue we are confronting, to defeat Phase III of the impeachment coup, the Ukraine phase. Seeing these hearings, does anyone think that in the chaotic aftermath of an overthrow of President Trump, a government of Pence or otherwise, with an abused and wild Congress, would do anything but fly to war with Russia in Ukraine; with China in the South China Sea, force its way back into Syria, Libya, even Venezuela or Bolivia?

We must demand, including through Members of Congress, the declassification of all State Department documents bearing on the 2014 coup in Ukraine, and State interactions with its various ultra-right governments, its war in “the Russian East,” etc.

As New York University Russian studies Prof. Emeritus Stephen F. Cohen has pointed out in recent days, we want and need President Trump to tell Ukraine’s new President Zelensky, “We have your back” in seeking peace and fighting corruption. The new Cold Warriors impeaching Trump want Zelensky out, too. That is the story of impeachment Phase III. And the pro-perpetual war media are running all out attacks on those few journalists who have dared to report it since 2017.

And there are the City of London and Wall Street, who want Trump out because the big banks are heading for another blowout.

Who knows what Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell told the President, when they met at the White House Monday morning, about the Fed’s panicky, $70-100 billion daily liquidity injections into some of those banks—unknown, which ones—since Sept. 17?

But the most influential banksters, and their friends in intelligence and diplomatic circles—do not want Trump in the White House to react to this financial crisis. He could take bold, unexpected steps.

That makes LaRouchePAC’s constant organizing —and the growth of our “committees of correspondence,” crucial. Lyndon LaRouche’s policy of rescuing the economy and saving the nation is for a Glass-Steagall breakup of Wall Street; negotiations with Russia, China and India to start a new international credit system; space missions to the Moon and Mars and development of advanced nuclear fission and fusion power.

That’s the peace policy. Impeachment is a British intelligence war game.
