A Step Back from the Brink; But There Can Be No Lasting Peace without a New International Security Architecture
Feb. 16—In her weekly webcast today, Helga Zepp-LaRouche stated that the world took a small step back from the brink, as the British-proclaimed deadline for a supposed Russian invasion of Ukraine came and went today without incident. Rather, diplomacy seems to be gathering a bit of a toe-hold, with the back-to-back visits to Moscow and Kiev of French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, along with a growing chorus of American voices demanding strategic sanity from the U.S. government.Read more
Helga Zepp-LaRouche Weekly Webcast: Historical Truth Emerging, Trans-Atlantic war Propaganda Machine Takes a Hit
Join the Schiller Institute Feb. 19 for an international conference https://schillerinstitute.nationbuilder.com/100_seconds_to_midnight_02192022
Though the strategic situation around Russia and NATO remains highly dangerous, Helga Zepp-LaRouche stated today that there has been a change. Putin succeeded in provoking a discussion about Russia's security concerns, effectively making the case that one nation or bloc of nations must not improve its security at the expense of others. She noted forward motion in the meeting between German Chancellor Scholz and President Putin, even as Trans-Atlantic war hawks keep insisting that Russia may invade "any day."Read more
NATO Expansion: Former French Foreign Minister Roland Dumas Debunks the Lie that “Nothing Was Promised” to Russia
PARIS, Feb. 15, 2022 (EIRNS)—In a powerful intervention into the current crisis, Roland Dumas, French President François Mitterrand’s Foreign Affairs Minister (1984-’86, ’88-’93) and therefore a direct eye- and ear-witness, in a 27-minute interview with the French website Les Crises, completely debunks the Anglo-American claims that “nothing” was promised to Russia.Read more
Saturday Schiller Institute Conference:”100 Seconds to Midnight”
Feb. 15—While there will be multiple shifts of the international political terrain in the next 72 hours, Saturday’s Schiller Institute Conference, “100 Seconds to Midnight on the Doomsday Clock: We Need A New Security Architecture!”, subsumes those momentary shifts in the tactical landscape. As Executive Intelligence Review founder Lyndon LaRouche, once, in a different but comparable circumstance observed, “the world has entered a transitional period in which old habits of judgment and orientation are useless and even contraindicated for practical evaluation of most of the emerging phenomena of the strategic and national-tactical developments. For this reason, very few persons in the world…are intellectually pre-trained to understand those processes which will be decisive in determining the outcome of this immediate several weeks and months directly before us.”Read more
CRUCIAL UPDATE -- The Pro-War Narrative Is Unravelling: Yes, We Have Been Lied To!
Matlock Asserts, ‘The Most Profound Strategic Blunder’ Is Now Threatening World War
Feb. 14—In a long and very direct address today on the American Committee for U.S.-Russian Accord’s “ACURA Viewpoint,” the last U.S. Ambassador to the Soviet Union Jack Matlock (1987-92) presents the entire history, which led from the end of the Cold War to the present obvious threat of superpower hot war. Matlock begins by saying he “cannot dismiss the suspicion that we are witnessing an elaborate charade” by Biden to “prevent” a non-existent Russian invasion of Ukraine. And later he notes that Biden campaigned for President in 2008 on the line, “I will stand up to Vladimir Putin,” a particularly absurd posture at that time, but most of his piece is tracing the mistakes of U.S. and NATO policy which turned Russia from virtual NATO ally to adversary in what could become an all-out nuclear war.Read more
War of Narratives Escalates, Drowning Out Legitimate Concerns raised by Putin
The issue at the heart of the present U.S.-Russia showdown is not Ukraine, but the need to move to a new security architecture, one which not only guarantees Russia's security, but that of every nation. The Russians have been clear on this. It's the response from the War Hawks in the West that has deliberately muddied things, putting the world into a moment of tension not experienced since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. Will war begin tomorrow, as some in U.S. intelligence are insisting? Or is this a bluff, another fake narrative, which will allow the war hawks to proclaim victory if there is no war?
Could Biden Unleash Worse Hell Over Ukraine Than He Did in Afghanistan?
Feb. 14—The Biden Administration, with a very bad misjudgment of the real condition of Afghanistan after 20 years of NATO’s war there, made a rushed pull-out and then moved to seize all the country’s cash and punish its people with no food, medical care or shelter in the dead of winter. It never even told America’s NATO “allies” what it was doing. It’s leaving a country destroyed.Read more
The Counter War Drive Is Building … But Decisive Break Is Urgent
Feb. 13—The question of what will happen next, and when, in the contrived confrontation by the NATO bloc against Russia in Europe, remains hanging in the air and very dangerous. More counter forces of sanity are speaking out, but a decisive break is urgent.Read more
