Zepp-LaRouche: Wake Up Now, Or You May Not Exist by This Time Next WeekBy Helga Zepp-LaRouche
Sept. 26—An exaggeration? Unfortunately not.
The world is barreling towards a nuclear showdown between the US-NATO and Russia, with far too few voices in the West raised in protest and demanding alternatives, Helga Zepp-LaRouche warned in a policy discussion with LaRouche movement organizers on Monday afternoon. “This current crisis around Ukraine is far, far more dangerous than the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. It poses an existential threat to all of civilization.”
It’s almost as if the world were existing in two parallel universes, Zepp-LaRouche stated. On the one side, Russia’s leading circles are fully convinced that the West’s NATO structure is out to destroy Russia in its entirety, to rip it to pieces and “decolonize” it, as various think tanks are openly calling for. President Putin said as much in his Sept. 21 speech to the Russian nation. Foreign Minister Lavrov has stated the same at home and abroad. And a pronouncement issued by the influential Izborsk Club also on Sept 21 spoke for many in Russia when it warned that this is “a fateful moment in history. The violent confrontation between Russia and the West poses the ultimate question: will Russia survive in this struggle or will it finally and irreversibly disappear. A great war is on the doorstep.”
In the “other” universe, NATO and the West are hell-bent on using the Ukraine war to push through their decades-old agenda of “decolonizing” or fully dismembering Russia into powerless statelets – a policy which Zbigniew Brzezinski and other London assets long championed. They have repeatedly stated over the last year, louder and louder by the day, that they are fully prepared to use nuclear weapons to force Russia to back down and capitulate.
“Things are about to go awfully wrong,” ZeppLaRouche warned. We have two high-speed trains – nuclear trains -- barreling towards each other, and there will be a train wreck unless this is stopped in the next days.
Events of the last 24 hours have only confirmed this evaluation. The referenda are underway in the four regions of Ukraine, and everything indicates that there is both a very large voter turnout and that there will be an overwhelming vote in favor of joining Russia – as occurred with Crimea back in 2014. The voting will end on Sept. 27, and Russian parliamentarians believe the final steps for the regions’ accession will be completed by Sept. 30. At that point, they will be considered part of Russia – and defended as such by Moscow.
Yesterday, Secretary of State Tony Blinken and National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan were sent out to tell national TV audiences that “We will not recognize the sham referenda,” as Sullivan stated on CBS, “and we will treat this territory for what it is – Ukrainian territory, not Russian territory. And we will continue to support the Ukrainians as they seek to de-occupy this territory.” And then for good measure: “Any use of nuclear weapons will be met with catastrophic consequences for Russia.” Blinken preferred to threaten that Russia would suffer “horrific consequences.”
Zepp-LaRouche concluded her remarks with a stark warning: “We have to go into a full Red Alert mobilization. If there are no significant voices of dissent coming from the United States, this itself becomes a factor in Moscow’s strategic assessment.”
We must change the perception abroad that there are almost no voices of sanity in the United States, or at least not sufficiently-influential voices to change the current course to nuclear annihilation. Those voices must be raised now, and loudly -- voices that understand that there is a basis for a negotiated solution to the Ukrainian crisis, built around a new international security and development architecture, that takes into consideration the needs of all nations.
Prominent Russians realize, and have said so publicly, that the voice of Lyndon LaRouche has been essential as the needed idea-giver for such a mutually beneficial policy, and that is why they want to shut down the speakers of the Schiller Institute conferences.
