Feb. 24—“Before we finally and irrevocably reach the point of no return in mankind’s history — the point at which a global, thermonuclear war obliterates the human species — we must act swiftly to correct the absolute disaster that the imperial policy of the EU and the United States has created in Ukraine, and in relation to Russia and China. And we must especially eliminate the roots of this civilizational crisis, before the point of no return is reached.” So wrote Helga Zepp-LaRouche in a March 8, 2014, article. Eight years later, her analysis is absolutely spot-on.
The failure of NATO and the United States to respond seriously to Russia’s December 2021 security demands has led to a situation where President Putin felt that he had no choice but to launch a “special military operation” in Ukraine to achieve its demilitarization and denazification, before the situation in Ukraine, including increasing quantities of materiel and foreign military service members, created an absolutely unbearable security threat.
The literally Nazi menace in Ukraine, installed in that coup, was exposed in a powerful expose published by Executive Intelligence Review in February 2014: “Western Powers Back Neo-Nazi Coup in Ukraine.”
The roots of the civilizational crisis driving the mad rush towards conflict with Russia and China is the collapsing the trans-Atlantic financial system, and the hysterical intent to use military threats and “green” blackmail to maintain the unipolar supremacy of the trans-Atlantic elite.
As stated in the Schiller Institute’s February 23 petition — which is drawing an increasing number of signatures — “behind this very real danger of war, and the cause of that danger, is the blowout of the entire trans-Atlantic financial system…. The City of London and Wall Street, the owners of that bankrupt system, are desperate to destroy any functioning alternative to their system — such as Russia and China’s alliance … — and the financial Establishment has openly stated that this is what is at stake.”
Will that establishment’s mad demand for submission be overcome, to be replaced by a new paradigm, a new security and development architecture for all nations? The answer lies in our hands. Join the LaRouche movement’s work to demand the immediate convocation of an international conference like that which crafted the Peace of Westphalia. The petition is available in English here.
