British Prepare To Deploy the U.S. To Wage War With Russia
April 18 , 2021 (EIRNS)—The British Empire, after losing their American colony in the Revolutionary War, and failing to take it back through the British-sponsored Civil War, are now engaged in an open, deadly conspiracy to drag the United States into a suicidal war with Russia, which they imagine will help create their new “Global Britain”—a modern version of the Empire they never relinquished. “British brains and American brawn” has served them well over this past century and a half, dragging the U.S. into two World Wars launched by John Bull, and more recently a few “lovely little wars”—colonialist wars in Southeast Asia and Southwest Asia—serving no human purpose, costing millions of lives, unimaginable misery, and leaving the world today in a state of moral and cultural disintegration.
Will the American people, and their European “allies,” sleepwalk into yet another world war, this time with thermonuclear weapons? That appears to be the intention of the government in Ukraine, put in place in 2014 by the Obama Administration with significant help from George Soros and the “regime change” experts at the National Endowment for Democracy. At the time, Obama gave Vice President Joe Biden the portfolio for overseeing the regime change against the elected government of Ukraine, working together with neoconservative killer Victoria Nuland, then the Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs, to put the overtly neo-Nazi followers of Hitler’s Ukrainian asset Stepan Bandera into power in Kiev. Now, Biden (or at least his senile current self) and Nuland are back, as President and Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs. They are pushing for Ukraine and its fascist leaders to be brought into NATO. Ukraine’s Ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnyk told the German press that Germany’s responsibility for the Nazi holocaust requires that it “must play a leading role in order for Ukraine to become a NATO member, and as quickly as possible, with no ‘ifs’ or ‘buts.’ ” Failure to do so will mean a new large-scale war in Europe, he implied.
Consider the implication: Pay compensation for having allowed the Nazi Holocaust by placing Nazis in power in Ukraine, to provoke yet another war on Russia? Do the citizens of the Western world not recall that it was Russia that fought the vast majority of the battles with the Nazis in the Great Patriotic War, as the Soviet Union called it, and lost by far the greatest number of casualties among its citizens? Are they oblivious to the fact that Russia is watching NATO expand its nuclear-armed forces up to Russia’s borders, that the U.S. has unilaterally ended most of the arms limitation treaties, and that the NATO powers have appointed themselves superior to the UN Security Council, established to prevent another global war, by imposing sanctions without Security Council approval, and waging regime-change wars without Security Council approval?
Ambassador Melnyk went further: If Ukraine is not accepted into NATO, he said, then the only option is “to arm by ourselves, and maybe think about nuclear status again.” Nazis armed with nuclear weapons. Who could allow it?
As you will see below, the answer is British intelligence. Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky has been taking orders from MI6 Chief Richard Moore. In a two-hour meeting in London last October, described by Zelensky as being about “helping and protecting our sovereignty and territorial integrity,” Moore and Zelensky set in motion plans for more U.S. and U.K. armaments for Ukraine, open support for Kiev’s Nazi militia assaults on the Donbas, shutting down the remaining opposition press in Ukraine, and even reconsideration of the 1994 Budapest Memorandum by which Ukraine gave up its nuclear weapons.
Citizens of good will in the U.S., the U.K. and the EU do not have the privilege to ignore this rush to thermonuclear obliteration. The LaRouche Organization and the Schiller Institute addressed the moment of civilizational crisis in the March 20-21 Conference, and will do so again on May 8. The war drive must be stopped. The wars and sanctions policies now threatening the death of millions in Syria, Yemen and elsewhere, must also be stopped. To reverse the collapse of Western civilization, however, there must also be a full implementation of Lyndon LaRouche’s Four Laws, to put the bankrupt monetary system of Wall Street and the City of London out of our misery, with a New Bretton Woods Conference of the world’s leading nations, to restore the idea of peace through development, to build modern health systems in every part of the world, unite all nations in developing fusion power and in the exploration of outer space, and to restore beauty and classical culture to the western cultural wasteland. The task is huge, but nothing less can succeed, and never has it been more urgent.
