International Day of Action for a Unique Solution: Build Peace via Emergency Trump-Putin-Xi Summit
The Schiller Institute, founded by Helga Zepp-LaRouche, organized an international Day of Action, which LaRouchePAC participated in, on Jan. 15 to call for an emergency summit meeting among Presidents Trump, Putin and Xi to find a solution to the pressing danger of regional and world war, as reflected in the recent Iran developments. That Day of Action was held yesterday in dozens of cities in five continents, to awaken the population to the danger of war, its causes, and the needed solutions.
As the activities were being held, Helga Zepp-LaRouche stated in her weekly international webcast that “such a summit must occur, to get out of the danger of confrontation which is now clearly escalating, and not really resolved at all between the United States and Iran.” Many people are befuddled, disoriented, and/or fatalistic, as they try to make sense of the strategic danger following the assassination of Iranian leader Qasem Soleimani. The Schiller Institute mobilization, she said, is to “create a chorus, a chorus of people demanding that we absolutely must change the agenda” defined by the dominant trans-Atlantic financial system and British imperial geopolitics, because if things are left as they are, the situation could go completely out of control.
“This is not only our view,” Zepp-LaRouche elaborated. “Today, Russian President Vladimir Putin gave his state of the nation address before the Federal Assembly, and there he stated that we are in a situation where a regional conflict very clearly could become something affecting the whole global security situation”—a clear reference to the recent Iran crisis. Putin then called for a meeting of the five founding nations of the United Nations—the U.S., Russia, China, France and the U.K.—to “establish a new order which makes these dangers impossible, and start to discuss the principles on which such a new order has to be built.”
“I don’t disagree with that,” Zepp-LaRouche said. If you have a meeting of these five permanent members of the UN Security Council, the important thing is that you have the three most powerful nations sitting already at the table—namely, the United States, Russia, and China.”
The assassination of Iran’s Gen. Qasem Soleimani brought the world to the brink, she said. This had a very erosive effect on the international strategic situation, and it had a bad effect immediately on other nations, such as Kim Jong Un in North Korea, “because he will now remember what former National Security Adviser John Bolton had said about Kim receiving the treatment that was given to Saddam Hussein and Muammar Qaddafi.”
“And I’m not blaming Trump,” Zepp-LaRouche continued, “because Trump is in a completely difficult situation, because he’s surrounded by the same people whom he had attacked not very long ago as ‘the military-industrial complex.’ And the Articles of Impeachment will be introduced against him in the Senate today,” all of which is designed to box him into the British agenda for global showdown. Contrary to the British plan, Trump yesterday held a positive signing of Phase One of a trade agreement with China, which strengthened his personal working relationship with President Xi—although it still leaves much to be resolved between the two nations.
The center of the problem, Zepp-LaRouche reiterated, is British geopolitics. “It all goes back to the doctrine of geopolitics, of absolutely preventing the countries of the so-called Eurasian land-mass to cooperate economically; it goes back to the ‘Great Game’ of the 19th century against Russia; it goes back to the Bernard Lewis doctrine, the Samuel Huntington ‘Clash of Civilizations,’ Brzezinski playing the Islamic card, There is a long historical tradition of trying to manipulate this region.”
The driving force behind this British geopolitical drive for war is the collapsing trans-Atlantic financial system, which even the major financial media and market gurus are finally admitting is about to fully collapse—which EIR, LaRouchePAC, and the Schiller Institute has been telling you for years. The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that the Federal Reserve is so panicked that its latest round of repos on top of renewed quantitative easing is simply not working, that they are looking into “new tools, new paths to liquidity” to try to forestall a blowout. The London Telegraph fretted that “the party’s over for the biggest equities bubble in history,” and that “Some now fear the stimulus that stopped the economy sliding into an economic depression could sow the seeds of the next market crash.”
