Once Again: An Emergency Summit with Trump, Xi, Putin and Modi Is Essential To Solve the Planet’s Breakdown Crisis

“The world today is at a crossroads, which Friedrich Schiller would have identified as a punctum saliens, that is, the point in a drama where the crucial decision must be taken: Will the protagonists manage to rise to a higher level of sublime action and thus provide a positive solution, or will they remain trapped in the geometry in which the antagonisms are seemingly insoluble, and thereby turn the drama into a tragedy. The world today is at such a point in two respects: in the crisis between the United States and China, and on a domestic level in the United States itself.”

That is the way in which Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche began an article for the June 4 issue of the German weekly Neue Solidarität, which takes a step back from the complexity of daily developments in order to provide a broad strategic overview—along with a clear course of action to resolve the crisis facing every nation on the planet.

“In an already extremely tense situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with over 100,000 deaths and 30% unemployment, the brutal murder of Afro-American George Floyd triggered an explosion of violence and intense riots” in dozens of cities across the U.S. “President Donald Trump has asked the Pentagon for military options under the 1807 Insurrection Act, and the National Guard of Minnesota began the largest deployment of its 164-year history. The country is polarized on the edge of civil war. But the limit has not only been reached domestically; the strategic confrontation with China has also reached a turning point.

“Long before Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election, British secret services in collusion with U.S. circles—often called the ‘Deep State’ for short—were busy setting up wide-ranging pitfalls for Trump in the event he would win. As early as January 21, 2017, the London Spectator headlined: “Will Donald Trump Be Assassinated, Ousted in a Coup or Just Impeached?” The scandal around the deposed British Ambassador to Washington, Sir Kim Darroch, shed light on the methods by which the British Empire, once Trump had taken office, went to huge lengths to create a completely controlled environment around him (to ‘flood the zone’) by trying to influence via the British Embassy every single contact that Trump had. The aim: If neither a coup nor impeachment proceedings against Trump should succeed, he was to be ‘fenced in,’ in line with the goals of the British Empire.

“And fenced in he was, when he gave his press conference on May 29 in the White House Rose Garden, in which he went through the whole catalogue of British-inspired lies against China and the World Health Organization. Surrounded by Pompeo, Mnuchin, O’Brien, Lighthizer, Kudlow and Navarro, Trump proclaimed what Pompeo had been working on at full speed for months: the lifting of Hong Kong’s special status as a financial center and special tax zone, as well as U.S. cooperation with the WHO.”

Zepp-LaRouche explained that “With this press conference, the relationship between the United States and China has reached a new low: not only is there the decoupling of the economies threatened, leading to a new formation of blocs and a new Cold War, but a course has been set that could to the Third World War.”

There is one, clear way to kick over the entire British-orchestrated chessboard, which Zepp-LaRouche then specified:

“It should be clear to every thinking person, given the mushrooming number of existential global crises—from the COVID-19 pandemic, the growing global economic depression, the danger of a global hunger crisis, to the clearly impending collapse of the financial system—that a disaster can only be prevented if the major nations of the world, namely the United States, China, Russia and India, cooperate in solving these problems. It is only if international cooperation can be carried out on the level of reason, where geopolitics is overcome, that mankind will have a future.

“Therefore, it is all the more urgent that President Trump return to his originally positive attitude toward China and face-to-face talks with President Xi Jinping, and to the time when he voiced his admiration for Chinese culture. After firing his National Security Adviser John Bolton, Trump tweeted that if he had listened to him, we would be ‘in World War Six by now.’ He should also remember the utterings of Secretary of State Pompeo, whose strategic positions are identical to those of Bolton in many ways. In a speech in Texas, Pompeo had admitted with striking nonchalance for a fundamentalist Christian: ‘I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole.... We had entire training courses.’

“Moreover, it is owing to Pompeo that the Russiagate farce could go on after 2017, since at the very latest after his discussion with former NSA Technical Director Bill Binney in October 2017 Pompeo had the evidence that no Russian hacking of the Democratic Party computers had taken place.

“Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee has just released a program for the creation of 1.5 billion new productive jobs around the world—a program that can only be implemented through international cooperation among the major industrialized nations, but above all by overcoming the geopolitical confrontation between the United States and China, Russia and India. This unprecedented crisis is to a certain extent a test for mankind as to whether we can create in time a new order, based on the general welfare of all people on this planet and allowing the permanent survival of our species. The best way that other nations can contribute to this is by public support for an emergency summit between Presidents Trump, Xi Jinping and Putin and Prime Minister Modi.”
