At this very moment, the world stands on the brink of potential thermonuclear extinction. This does not mean that civilization is doomed. It does mean that we are very close to a strategic confrontation between the United States and some NATO allies on the one side, and Russia and China on the other.
The one and only source of the war danger is the desperation among factions in London, which would rather see the world wiped out, than face the loss of global financial power. This desperate City of London-centered financial oligarchy, and its Wall Street appendage, operate through the vast—yet often underestimated—powers of the British monarchy, whose stated intention is to reduce the world’s human population from currently seven billions persons, to less than one billion.
There is presently a chasm, a fundamental difference in future perspectives, between the trans-Atlantic region of the world and the Eurasian region of the world:
The former has abandoned the scientific and technological optimism so characteristic of the Kennedy era, in order to embrace “greenism”, an oligarchical unscientific creation that will deliver a future fueled by “soft energy” sources, whose low energy flux density will inevitably result in a rapid depopulation of the planet. That trans-Atlantic region’s economic future looks very bleak under the present policies, as the financial oligarchy moves to extend, to every nation within that region, their “Greek model”, where the European Troika has now imposed a banker’s dictatorship that has enslaved every man, woman and child of that once proud and ancient nation, that had been the birthplace of Western democracies!
The Eurasian sector, with all its imperfections, is nonetheless presently strongly committed to economic growth and scientific and technological achievement. Nuclear energy is being expanded throughout that region and, as exemplified by the recent Chinese rover landing on the Moon, whose primary scientific task is to explore the possibility of future mining on the Moon of the helium-3 gas, that would serve as the primary fuel source of future fusion energy reactors, thereby accelerating both the scientific and economic feasibility of fusion energy for the nations of the world.
The Immediate Danger
In the Executive Intelligence Review (EIR) fact sheet on Ukraine, an important and timely featured item included in this Special Report, we warn that the Ukrainian developments could become the flashpoint for triggering World War III.
We quote from the opening paragraphs of that report here:
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.
The Urgent War Avoidance Measures:
Our Special Report urges the appropriate governments to deal with the two immediate measures which would greatly diminish the threat of thermonuclear war:
1)The removal of President Barack Obama from the Presidency, either through a formal impeachment process, or through the application of the 25th. Amendment to the United States Constitution or simply by a Nixon-style forced resignation.
2)The voting up in the immediate period of a coordinated global Glass-Steagall-type legislation in the major Parliaments of the trans-Atlantic region, thereby putting in orderly bankruptcy the City of London and its Wall Street appendage and opening up the possibility of replacing the present bankrupt world monetary system with a new world economic system based on the principles of Alexander Hamilton’s National Bank for productive public credit.
3)Such a Hamiltonian world credit system would then permit worthwhile national and continental great infrastructure projects to get built over the one or two decades necessary for completion, therefore building the bridges towards peace based on the leitmotiv of the encyclical Populorium Progressio that the new name for peace is development.
4)Finally, the long-term harmony of interest of all human beings is to get sovereign nations to work towards the common aims of Mankind and that would certainly put space cooperation at the top of the list, not only for defence against incoming asteroids, as proposed by Russia’s present leadership, but in order to reach, within this Century, a true Age of Reason for Mankind based on Mankind’s mastery of space and the exploration of near earth planets and eventually the Solar System and beyond.
