LaRouche: Colored Revolutions "Illegal Warfare Under International Law & Federal Constitution"
In an international webcast on Friday June 6, 2014, Lyndon LaRouche called for the impeachment of Barack Obama for continuing to conduct war as did Bush and Cheney on behalf of the British Empire under the cover of the so-called Color Revolutions and the so-called Arab Spring.
This policy, enunciated by Tony Blair, in 1999 in a speech in Chicago, and initiated following the British Empire/Saudia Arabia orchestrated 9/11 attack on the United States, was explicitly denounced by Russian and Belarusian military speakers including Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, Russian Chief of Staff Valery Gerasimov, and Vladimir Zarudnitsky, head of Operations for the Russian General Staff, and Belarusian Defense Minister Yury Zhadobin at the May 23 Moscow Security Conference.
Zarudnitsky explicitly said:
"Colored revolutions are a new technique of aggression, geared towards destroying a state from within."
According to Voice of Russia, President Putin personally sent a written keynote address to the Moscow Security Conference which was read to those attending by Defense Minister Shoigu, in which Putin explicitly denounces "color revolutions" by name, stating that the "archaic logic of geopolitical games" is leading to a serious increase in global instability and tension:
"The process of development of a new polycentric system of international relations is proceeding with difficulty and is accompanied by an increase in global instability. We have not been able to make considerable headway in the formation of a union space of peace, security and stability in Europe and the Atlantic. The situation in the Middle East and Northern Africa remains tense, and serious risks are associated with the situation in Afghanistan. Obviously, modern challenges and threats make it necessary to stop the archaic logic of geopolitical games with a zero result, the attempts to force your own methods and values on other peoples, including by color revolutions."
In an interview on French TV prior to the celebration of the anniversary of D-Day, Putin himself pointed to the fact that Europe and the United States are supporting an anti-constitutional armed coup in Ukraine which unleashed chaos and violence right on Russia's border and that the same type of operation is being attempted in Syria.
LaRouche emphasized in the webcast:
"This has been going on in Northern Africa, in games with the Saudis, in games with terrorists, or Blair's operation in setting up the Iraq war, which was an unlawful war, a violation of everything by the British monarchy, the British Empire."
In comments on June 7, LaRouche stressed that 9/11 was actually a "color revolution" directed at the United States. The purpose of this attack on the part of the British Empire and its Saudi Arabian ally was to turn the United States into the instrument for launching perpetual warfare under the doctrines of "limited sovereignty," "responsibility to protect" and "humanitarian intervention" — the so-called Blair Doctrine. The ultimate aim of that policy is to reduce the world's population, i.e. genocide, hardly humanitarian.
The Blair Doctrine: "A New Type of War"
In his speech in Chicago before the Economic Club on April 22, 1999, Blair put forward the British Empire policy of so-called "humanitarian intervention" in violation of the principle of "non-interference" in the sovereign affairs of another nation-state as was established by the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648:
"We are all internationalists now, whether we like it or not... We cannot turn our backs on conflicts and the violation of human rights within other countries if we want still to be secure. On the eve of a new Millennium we are now in a new world. We need new rules for international co-operation and new ways of organising our international institutions... We are witnessing the beginnings of a new doctrine of international community."
In a later speech on March 5, 2004, i.e. after 9/11, Blair was even more explicit:
"So, for me, before Sept. 11, I was already reaching for a different philosophy in international relations from a traditional one that has held sway since the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648; namely, that a country's internal affairs are for it, and you don't interfere unless it threatens you, or breaches a treaty, or triggers an obligation of alliance."
Blair finished his speech by declaring:
"That is the struggle which engages us. It is a new type of war."
In addition to violating the U.S. Constitution, this policy is also in direct violation of Article 2 of the UN Charter which says:
"All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state."
It also merits prosecution under the principle established by the Nuremberg Tribunal that it is a war crime to wage aggressive war, which it defined as a "crime against peace" punishable under international law:
Principle VI of Nuremberg states:
"The crimes hereinafter set out are punishable as crimes under international law:
(a) Crimes against peace:
(i) Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances;
(ii) Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of the acts mentioned under (i)."
On the crime of aggressive war, the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg declared:
"War is essentially an evil thing... To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole."
And yet this is the policy which the Bush/Cheney administration carried out against Iraq under the influence of Blair's lies about weapons of mass destruction. It is also the policy under which Obama has carried out the intervention to overthrow Qaddafi in Libya and has attempted to overthrow Assad in Syria. It is also the doctrine under which Bush/Cheney tortured suspected terrorists and Obama has murdered innocent civilians and even American citizens in Yemen, Pakistan and Afghanistan through drone attacks. It is also the doctrine under which Obama carried out a Nazi coup in Ukraine.
In the name of "humanitarian intervention" and the "responsibility to protect" — also vehemently espoused by the witches who immediately control Obama, including Susan Rice, Samantha Powers, and Valerie Jarrett — the United States under Obama has allied with al-Qaeda terrorists in Libya and Syria and with Nazis in Ukraine.
