Western Powers Back Neo-Nazi Coup in Ukraine
by an EIR Research Team

Feb. 2—Western nations, led by the European Union and the Obama Administration, are backing an outright neo-Nazi regime-change coup in Ukraine. If the effort succeeds, the consequences will extend far beyond the borders of Ukraine and neighboring states. For Russia, such a coup would constitute a casus belli,coming as it does in the context of NATO missile defense expansion into Central Europe and the evolution of a U.S.-NATO doctrine of ``Prompt Global Strike,'' which presumes that the United States can launch a pre-emptive first strike against Russia and China and survive the retaliation.
The events in Ukraine constitute a potential trigger for a global war that could rapidly and easily escalate to a thermonuclear war of extinction. At this weekend's Munich Security Conference, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had a heated public exchange with NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, in which the latter accused Russia of ``bellicose rhetoric'' and Lavrov responded by citing the European missile defense program as an attempt to secure a nuclear first-strike capability against Russia.
In his formal remarks at Munich and a week earlier at the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland, Lavrov also assailed Western governments for supporting neo-Nazi terrorist organizations in their zeal to place Ukraine under European Union and Troika control to tighten the NATO noose around Russia.

This Week's Cover



  • The British Coup vs. Clinton Brought U.S. to Edge of Hell
    From the moment Clinton was sworn in as President, a new stage of warfare between the British Empire and the American Republic began. Faced with the financial implosion of its system, the Empire was determined to expand its global looting, and destroy any potential for the U.S. Presidency to take the lead in stymying that policy, by implementing new global measures, best captured in the 'The New Bretton Woods' program then being put forward by Lyndon LaRouche.


  • A Non-Nuclear Japan Will Implode World's 3rd Economy
    Japan's Prime Minister Abe is now riding high on the apparent success of his economic stimulus, but Japan's ballooning trade deficit hints that all is not well, and that without a return to nuclear power, the world's third-largest economy is headed for a fall, that will bring trouble for the global economy as well.
  • In Memoriam:
    Hankel's Death Leaves Germany a Poorer Nation
    'In a sea of soulless monetarists and propagandists for an 'economy that kills,' as Pope Francis recently called it, Professor Hankel was one of the few German economists worthy of the name,' writes Helga Zepp-LaRouche in her tribute to a longtime friend of the LaRouche movement, who passed away on Jan. 15.

  • In Honor of Peter Alexander Egom:
    Economy & Africa
    by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

    The Nigerian scholar and author Peter Alexander Egom's book, Compass for Economic Reform 'represents an appeal to the needs of the African continent (i.e., Nigeria). . . . Africa deserves all the relevant sort of assistance which might be useful to its inherent mission for the future. My attention to that book then, has now been focused on particularly, a small part of his concluding remarks.'
