EIR LEAD EDITORIAL FOR TUESDAY NOVEMBER 8, 2022
Elect To Change the World’s Descent into War
Nov. 7, 2022 (EIRNS)—Those in the United States that today will have the privilege and opportunity to vote for Independent candidates Diane Sare (United States Senate in New York) and Joel Dejean (U.S. Congress 38th CD, Texas), or for those that have worked with them despite policy differences, such as Geoff Young (6th CD, Kentucky), are reviving what many Americans do not even realize has been stolen—not “American elections,” but the American electoral process itself. Today’s electoral process is only significant as it is subsumed in the global battle to walk the world back from the brink of thermonuclear war, and to a durable new strategic and economic architecture based on a return to the recently-abandoned ideal and practice of the 1648 Treaty of Westphalia.
The principle that informs that treaty is that each party to a conflict must negotiate peace from the standpoint of placing priority on “the benefit of the other,” rather than their own grievances or advantages. The Westphalia Treaty, also known as the Treaty of Münster, which the Green Foreign Minister of Germany Annalena Baerbock, a “Dumb and Dumber” version of Tony Blair, has been attacking (including attacking her own Chancellor Olaf Scholz, for his trip to China), led her to, in the Münster meeting chamber where the Treaty was signed, and where the G7 Foreign Ministers meeting was going on, apparently even have the Christian Cross that hangs there removed. Was she expecting Dracula, or did she want that done because she is allergic?
Today we call attention to two matters that might not receive proper consideration if reported from other sources. First, Dmitry Polyanskiy, Russia’s First Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations, had a message to Americans that he conveyed last Thursday night, Nov. 3, on Terra Reade’s “Politics of Survival” show. In part, he said, “nobody in Russia wants a nuclear war—be it a ‘limited’ nuclear war or a ‘non-limited’ nuclear war. We understand where it can lead. We have no illusions that this would be devastating for everybody. So, if somebody starts this, it will not be Russia. But of course, if somebody starts it against Russia, according to our nuclear doctrine, we will have to retaliate.... But again, what is at stake? I think our common future is at stake. The future of the United States is at stake as well. Nobody wants the United States to crumble, nobody wants the United States to disappear....”
Second, there is the breakout of the reporting in the general German press, of the existence of the Ukrainian Center for Countering Disinformation “kill list,” including the name of an ally of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Rolf Mützenich, the chairman of the Parliamentary group of the German Social Democrats (SPD). While the kill list has been known to exist since July, no coverage was given to it, in part because it featured the name of Schiller Institute Founder and head Helga Zepp-LaRouche, a name which NATO forces have forbidden to be uttered without slander for well over 40 years in Germany. The German website NachDenkSeiten took that step in August, and later covered the Executive Intelligence Review press conference exposing the kill list in September.
The German breakout comes at a time when some, including in the United States and London, are threatening to wage war against Germany, should it consider taking even one step back from the suicide that is planned for it in the form of its imminent de-industrialization, once sought by Morgenthau and others. That will now be implemented under the pretext of the Great Green Reset. German industrialists, farmers, and those that believe themselves to be free citizens not subject to the Anglo-American occupation, do not agree.
Helga Zepp-LaRouche’s remarks on a Friday, Nov. 4 China Plus “World Today” podcast—that one does not have to see China as a systemic rival; that 150 countries do not see it that way, but rather see China as a partner to overcome colonialism; and that if the German media would report about the actual tremendous progress that has occurred in China, people would have a completely different view of the country—reflect the solution concept that the Schiller Institute will again present at its upcoming conference, “Stop the Danger of Nuclear War Now.” The conference is Tuesday, November 22, the 59th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
As in American current history, assassination has been used in Germany to assist in implementing the policy once expressed by the first (1952) Secretary General of NATO, Lord Hastings Lionel Ismay, Winston Churchill’s chief military assistant, as the purpose of NATO—“to keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down.” There were the assassinations of Jürgen Ponto and Hanns Martin Schleyer in 1977. (Lyndon LaRouche was #2 on that same “kill list.”) There were the assassinations of Alfred Herrhausen (November 1989) and Detlev Rohwedder (April 1991) after the fall of the Berlin Wall. And one cannot forget the effect of the assassination of German Foreign Minister Walter Rathenau 100 years ago in 1922, in the aftermath of the signing of the Rapallo Treaty with the Soviet Union, a killing whose actual planners and perpetrators induced Germany to take a different direction that manifested itself in a Munich beer hall one year later.
But the days of that Anglophile imperial order are rapidly passing. Yesterday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said, “We call on the G7 countries to abandon the Cold War mentality and ideological prejudice, stop interfering in other countries’ domestic politics, repeating lies and provoking regional conflicts.” It is, after all, in the interest of Germany and its population, particularly its skilled workforce, to assure China that Germany will not only honor standing contracts, but that it will continue to pursue and improve a relationship with China, even as it has become abundantly clear that the Anglosphere is about to declare war on China, at whatever expense to its own population. German industrialists and the Chancellor traveled to China against the wishes of the Anglosphere. This is against the unwritten Rule of Law, which has already decided for war with China, and will create a pretext to justify that war, as analyst Ray McGovern indicated in his remarks at the EIR press availability Saturday.
On Sunday, Nov. 6, organizers for the United States Senate campaign of Diane Sare challenged President Joe Biden to respond to Russia’s recent reiteration of their “no first use” policy on thermonuclear weapons. This occurred at a pre-election assembly at Sarah Lawrence College. (President Biden did not do so.) Organizers referred to the offer from the Pope—that the Vatican could be the location for immediate peace talks to cause a halt to the war in Ukraine. Pope Francis had accurately compared the present war to the wars of 1914-1918 and 1939-1945, saying that the present war is, as were those, a world war.
The Pope is correct; this is already a world war. There is a madness among some of the present-day malefactors in the trans-Atlantic world that insist this is not the case. Others are comparing the United States placement of “trainers” and “inspectors” in Ukraine, perhaps numbering a thousand or more, to the way the United States “found itself suddenly committed” to a doomed regime in South Vietnam, a regime whose leaders Anglo-American intelligence also assassinated, when that became convenient. The quagmire that ensued was horrific death for 3 million in Vietnam, crushing dehumanization of American troops, including through spontaneous and premeditated My Lai-style massacres, degradation for hundreds of thousands of veterans never actually reintegrated into United States society, and sheer delight for British intelligence. The same folly is afoot today, howsoever it may be called—“Revolution in Military Affairs” characterized by insane “Allgemeine SS”-like fantasies of “coalitions of the willing”; the Operation Gladio-like “behind enemy lines” (read inside of Russia’s borders) Resistance Operating Concept (ROC); or the Prompt Global Strike “we can win a nuclear war” lunacy, so effectively disproven by Steven Starr and Scott Ritter at our Saturday conference, “A Nuclear War Cannot Be Won and Must Never Be Fought.”
A final, post-Halloween note. When, yesterday at the Buckingham Palace COP27 gathering, King Charles greeted “Beatle Baby,” environmentally “woke” fashion designer and climate activist Stella McCartney, daughter of Sir Paul McCartney, the snapshot was one of “Rosemary’s Baby plus 50.” It’s actually twice that, 100 years of British counterculture, sired by Aleister Crowley, mediated by Julian and Aldous Huxley, and supervised by Lord Bertrand “Nuke Russia” Russell, that ruined the United States from within, combined with the war. The cultural axioms, the old, evil dreams of colonialism actually underlying the “New Malthusian” “Save The Planet, Kill The People” globalist movement will fly into Sharm el-Sheikh on their own steam, probably without need of planes. Perhaps the Spirit of Bandung will, as in Francisco Goya’s famous Plates 79 and 80 concluding his series The Disasters of War—Truth Has Died/ Will She Live Again?—be there to confront them. Who wins this battle, will be determined by what we, and those we recruit, despite differences, do in the immediate future.
