The War Drums Are Deafening, But There Are Signs of Sanity Which Must Be Expanded

As the blatant insanity of the war party is increasingly apparent to anyone with an ounce of concern for humanity, the perpetrators are becoming even more reckless, but some courageous souls are stepping forward to sound the warning and demand a return to diplomacy to prevent a holocaust and a new dark age.

Intense Round of Diplomacy Underway to Outflank the War Hawks

In the last ten days, there has been a flurry of diplomatic discussion prompted by the U.S.-U.K.-NATO insistence that Russia is about to invade Ukraine.  Putin has been busy, making the case that it is the Trans-Atlantic nations which are the aggressors, that they are launching provocations in the Ukraine-Black Sea region, and in the Indo-Pacific.  The dream of some deranged geopoliticians, that they could replay the efforts of Henry Kissinger in the 1974-76 period, to pit Russia and China against each other, suffered a probable fatal blow with the Putin-Xi summit yesterday.  While Blinken, Stoltenberg and Truss are huffing and bluffing, an alliance of sovereign nations, committed to peaceful economic cooperation, is growing.   Can the American people outflank the London-Wall St. corporate geopoliticians, and bring the U.S. in on the side of the alliance of sovereign states?

Putin and Xi Take the Bull by The Horns

PDF

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping held what amounted to an emergency summit meeting today by video conference. Announced only two days ago, the summit directly addressed two distinct kinds of “nuclear war” being threatened against the two countries by the bellicose and bankrupt U.K.-U.S. financial Establishment:

Diplomacy or War -- Who Controls Biden's Cabinet?

In the last days, Putin spoke with Macron and, at some length, with Xi.  With the former, he emphasized why he insists that western countries demand that Ukraine adhere to the Minsk agreement on resolving tension over eastern Ukraine, and agree to no further expansion of NATO.  With Xi, the discussion focused on achieving "ever-lasting peace and good neighborliness" on their common border.  Meanwhile, new German Chancellor Scholz is trying to reassure Germans that his radical Green transformation won't negatively affect their personal well-being!

Operation Ibn Sina: the Crucial Weapon in the Present “Shooting War of Ideas”

Fast-moving changes in the international strategic situation require that we direct our attention to answering this essential question: How are ideas, such as “The Committee for the Coincidence of Opposites” intervention into the world health crisis, and “Operation Ibn Sina,” a military-strategic, as well as philosophical alternative to the lethal geopolitics of Southwest Asia, intended to transform the present, clearly failing complex of “credible policy options” in order to secure, not only durable human survival, but even unprecedented economic prosperity? In other words, is it true that under certain circumstances, an idea, representing a deeper, unseen, higher, “poetic” principle, can take the form of an effective policy, perhaps embraced by much, even all of humanity, such that imperfect people and leaders, “even whilst they deny and abjure, are yet compelled to serve, that power which is seated on the throne of their own soul?”

Will the Biden Administration Proceed with the Judicial Murder of Julian Assange?

There is no better example of the fraud behind the Biden administration's "Summit for Democracy" than the attempt to murder whistleblower publisher Julian Assange.  His crime?  Publishing documents exposing war crimes committed by U.S. forces in Iraq, and covered up by U.S. officials.  The U.S. is proceeding with the case to extradite Assange from the U.K., where he continues to be held in Belmarsh prison.  As Assange awaits a predetermined guilty verdict if he is extradited to the U.S., the same networks he exposed for war crimes in Iraq are running yellow-journalist reports on Russia's alleged plans for a military attack on Ukraine, risking the danger of triggering World War III.

Psychopaths Are Threatening Our Existence! Germany Must Leave NATO!


NATO Expansion since 1949

By Helga Zepp-LaRouche

Dec 11—In view of the political orientation of the new government in Berlin, it seems almost hopeless to demand Germany’s immediate exit from NATO. But if Olaf Scholz is serious about the oath of office he took two days ago when he took office as Federal Chancellor, namely that he “wants to dedicate his energies to the well-being of the German people, increase their benefits and protect them from harm,” then he has to set this exit in motion immediately. Because in NATO, and especially in the U.S.A. and Great Britain, there are influential forces who, for geopolitical reasons, toy with the existence of Germany and beyond that, of all of humanity. The real reason for the global military muscle play on multiple fronts is the systemic collapse of the neoliberal system, which they are trying to cover up with a complex confetti shower of anti-Russian and anti-Chinese narratives.

Ryabkov and Putin Signal Russia May Have To Escalate

Whoever thought that U.S.-Russia tension, and the threat of war between the superpowers, would diminish naturally with the Dec. 7 videoconference summit between Presidents Biden and Putin, hoped in vain. Despite remarks by President Biden himself, the extreme belligerence of Secretary of State Blinken and British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss at the G7 ministerial meeting Dec. 10, and their refusal to step back regarding Ukraine joining NATO, have combined with a wild nuclear bombardment threat by Senate Armed Forces Committee second ranking Republican member Roger Wicker, to keep the crisis just as intense, and even to raise its pre-war-like temperature. The inevitable Russian response came today.
