Schiller Institute To Address Worsening U.S.-Russian Relations—Reverse Them in a New Paradigm, or Face Nuclear War
Feb. 8 , 2021 (EIRNS)—The astonishing utterance from the Commander of the U.S. Strategic Command Adm. Charles Richard that “The U.S. military must shift its principal assumption from ‘nuclear employment is not possible’ to ‘nuclear employment is a very real possibility,’ ” so soon after President Biden’s takeover, tells us that something potentially much more dangerous lies below the worsening of U.S.-Russia relations. “There is a real possibility,” Admiral Richard wrote in the February U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings, “that a regional crisis with Russia or China could escalate quickly to a conflict involving nuclear weapons.”
And this is only one of several shocking indications pointing in the same direction since Biden’s inauguration. They include the blowup of the latest “Navalny” attempt at a color revolution to overthrow President Vladimir Putin in Russia; and the major NATO organization Atlantic Council’s publishing a Jan. 31 call for a U.S. campaign “laser-focused,” on toppling China’s President Xi Jinping and “his inner circle.”
The Schiller Institute will hold on Saturday, Feb. 13 at 1:00 p.m. EST, a virtual roundtable discussion with a number of strategic experts, on how the anti-Russia and anti-China campaigns in the West have been created, and what has the potential to reverse them. The role of British intelligence is one key question. RT has recently released a video which shows, already almost a decade ago, an associate of Alexey Navalny named Vladimir Ashurkov meeting with a top official at the U.K. embassy in Moscow and asking British intelligence to provide $10-20 million/year and intelligence leads to organize a color revolution and oust Putin.
Why are these shocking policy statements pointing us toward the crossing of the brightest of red lines and the outbreak of a superpower war? There is spreading censorship of forces supporting former President Donald Trump, and others, in the United States: Is this clamp-down of censorship, as so often in history, a preparation for potential war? There is a global rush toward a “Green New Deal”; are those nations or leaders which refuse to deindustrialize in this way targeted for destruction? The most powerful obstacles to this “Great Reset” were China, Russia, and Trump.
By the Feb. 13 roundtable, Executive Intelligence Review will have published a 50-page white paper investigating this “Great Reset,” entitled “The Great Leap Backward: LaRouche Exposes the Green New Deal.” And The LaRouche Organization will have posted the first of a series of video interviews on the war danger, an interview on the Navalny affairs in Russia with Alex Krainer, author and expert on British geopolitics.
Join Schiller Institute President Helga Zepp-LaRouche and her panel Saturday at 1:00 p.m. EST online at Schiller Institute website.
