Syrian Army Operation to Liberate Southern Districts of East Aleppo. (Nov. 30) (photo: twitter.com/AlalamChannel)
ISIS is on the run from the Syrian and Russian forces in Syria; one election after another (Brexit, Philippines, U.S., France, Italy, South Korea) shows that the populations are disgusted with the economic dictatorship of the British/American banking empire and the attempt to start wars against Russia and China; China and Russia are building partnerships with over 100 nations to cooperate on great development projects to create modern nations and eliminate poverty, as has been nearly accomplished in China.
All this is reason for optimism. But, as Helga Zepp-LaRouche said today, we must not be complacent. The wounded beast of the British Empire and its puppet neocons in the U.S., including emphatically Obama, will stop at nothing to blow up the emergence of this new paradigm, especially in the U.S. As ISIS is being defeated in Syria, the Saudi-created terrorists are going berserk internationally, with murderous suicide attacks in Egypt, Turkey, Yemen and Nigeria just in the last days, killing over a hundred and wounding many others. Obama and factions in the CIA are wildly claiming that they didn’t lose the election in the U.S., but that Putin stole it! In a manner that makes the Harry Truman/Joe McCarthy Communist witch-hunt of the 1940s and ’50s look like child’s play, Obama has called on James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, to head a team to investigate the so-called Russian stealing of the election for Trump.
Remember that it was Clapper who swore to the U.S. Congress that there was no mass monitoring of U.S. citizens by the U.S. intelligence community — a lie which was a major cause of Edward Snowden’s decision to reveal that they were doing exactly that, and far more, worldwide. In that light, Donald Trump was right to reject the “ridiculous” claim of this faction of the intelligence community of Russian interference (other factions refute the lie), reminding us that these are the people who launched the destruction of the Mideast with the intentional lie about Saddam Hussein’s supposed weapons of mass destruction, even while the UN team in Iraq was reporting that the WMDs did not exist.
On the other hand, optimism can not become complacency. Trump is an unknown quantity. While he has surrounded himself with leading generals who have strongly opposed Obama’s military adventures in the Mideast and want to work with Russia to crush the terrorist scourge, and has also called for restoring Glass-Steagall, he is at the same time surrounded by Goldman Sachs officials who have led the looting of not only the U.S., but much of the world on behalf of the financial empire in the London and New York. What policies will guide the U.S. and the West in the coming months will be determined by the level of courage and determination of the people in the U.S. and Europe who will go beyond “throwing out the bums,” and demand a truly new paradigm — replacing the rule of the City of London and Wall Street with Glass-Steagall and Lyndon LaRouche’s Four Laws, while demanding that the U.S. and Europe join the New Silk Road, working with China and Russia rather than threatening war. (LaRouchePAC has released a 28 minute video on LaRouche’s Four Laws.)
The potential for a New Paradigm based on development rather than geopolitics was addressed this week in Shanghai in a forum sponsored by the Shanghai Institute for International Studies and the Dialogue of Civilization Research Institute (DOC), preparing cooperation between the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) launched by Russia and the One Belt, One Road initiative launched by China. As DOC founder Dr. Vladimir Yakunin posed as a question to be resolved: “How do we make sure that the simultaneous development of these different centers of growth leads to synergy, not conflict? The Silk Road Economic Belt and the Eurasian Economic Union may yet show the way.”
