Don’t Lose Focus: Defeat Nuclear War with a New Method of Statecraft
May 4, 2021 (EIRNS)—For over half a century, humanity has been menaced by the very real possibility of self-imposed extinction through nuclear warfare, launched either intentionally or by accident. That threat has waxed and waned, with periods of almost imminent warfare, some known (the Cuban Missiles Crisis) and some unknown (the September 1983 alarm that indicated a U.S. launch of five missiles, which a Soviet Lieutenant Colonel decided on his own was a false alarm).
Today the threat is extreme, but few know it, despite Adm. Charles Richards, the head of the U.S. Strategic Command, saying that there is a “real possibility” of nuclear conflict with Russia or China, demanding that the “U.S. military must shift its principal assumption from ‘nuclear employment is not possible’ to ‘nuclear employment is a very real possibility.’ ”
Henry Kissinger—in general no friend to the human race—accurately warned April 30 that “For the first time in human history, humanity has the capacity to extinguish itself in a finite period of time.”
Do you, personally, take seriously this threat?
The reason for the possibility of war does not lie with supposedly “malign” actions taken by either of those two countries; it comes from the demand made by the City of London and the trans-Atlantic financial institutions that all nations must submit to the Great Green Reset. The demand that true physical development must cease, and that spy agencies, finance, and militaries must cooperate to root out carbon dioxide offenders cannot and will not be accepted by Russia, China, or India.
The Schiller Institute conference to be held this Saturday, May 8, on the 76th anniversary of the defeat of fascism in Europe, is designed to pull together the leadership to avert catastrophe, and to usher in a new paradigm of relations among sovereign nations the mutual benefit of all.
