Arab Spring, Arab Autumn, and Nuclear Winter?

Fifty years ago in the last weeks of October, the world experienced thirteen days of an existential crisis known as the Cuban Missile Crisis. President John F. Kennedy, and his brother Robert, ushered our nation and the world safely through that danger, which could have ended civilization within a matter of hours.

Today, the world faces a similar imminent crisis; only this time, it is far worse.” (…)

“Since Russia and China have refused to submit to the British Imperial diktat of the zero-growth economic model called globalization and are a threat to the crumbling transatlantic banking system, they are now targeted. War with these nations will indeed bring a nuclear winter. This is the same nuclear winter that we avoided under the leadership of John F. Kennedy. (1)

On the Brink of Nuclear War, Again?

Fifty years ago this week, the world stood at the brink of a nuclear conflagration, as the result of a standoff between the United States and the Soviet Union, known today as the Cuban Missile Crisis. Fortunately for all mankind, a truly good President, John F. Kennedy, was determined to avoid the worst, and the immediate crisis was resolved peacefully.

Yet today, mankind again faces the imminent danger of thermonuclear war, this time pushed by the British-spawned confrontational policies of a U.S. President, Barack Obama. How could this have happened? And what can we do?

Had the British not assassinated President Kennedy, and gotten away without the blame, the present crisis could have been avoided. JFK’s perspective of space exploration, massive infrastructure development, industrialization of the Third World, and international collaboration for all forms of progress promised not only the United States, but the world, an era of unprecedented peace and prosperity— the only true basis for avoiding war.

Instead, Kennedy’s policies, which echoed those of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, were killed— along with the tens of thousands of Americans, and hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese in a long land-war in Asia. A policy of zero growth, and nuclear superpower crisis management, was ushered in, directed by the geopolitical and genocidal ideology of the British Empire. With it, lawfully, came the seemingly endless series of wars.

Today we have reached an apparent end-game in this process. President Obama has fully embraced those British policies, directly the opposite of President Kennedy—and they are leading us toward war. Faced with the threatened collapse of its financial power, the British oligarchy which put Obama into power is prepared to risk all, even the survival of the planet, to back down Russia and China, in the determination to save its form of rule.

What can we do? Removing Obama from power is clearly the first step, but that is far from enough—especially as there is no individual running for President, and certainly no political party, qualified in any way to take up the Kennedy-FDR legacy. For that, we must assemble a network of patriots committed to implementing a very clear policy of economic recovery, which, crucially, will destroy the financial power of the British empire. Three steps are necessary:

1) Restore Glass-Steagall, cancelling the existing bailouts and protecting the necessary commercial banking functions. This policy, which will cut Wall Street down to size, has already drawn support from individuals from both parties—and it is urgent to prevent a hyperinflationary disaster now.

2) Return to National Banking, funding the recovery by re-establishing the Constitutional system of Federal credit, as defined by Alexander Hamilton’s concept of advancing the productive powers of labor.

3) Build NAWAPA XXI and related great projects, employing millions of skilled, productive workers, and restoring the sense of mission which the nation has lost since the assassination of John Kennedy.

Only by means of these three steps, initiated by a post-Obama non-partisan Presidency, can the United States and the world possibly survive. One might ask one’s self: Is the kind of courage and vision which JFK applied, a vision which mankind’s role in space still pays homage to, gone forever? Can we find it in ourselves to bring the world back from the brink? (2)

Prominent Russian Duma Member Warns of World War III

LaRouchePAC
October 21, 2012

Yevgeni Fyodorov, chairman of the Russian State Duma Committee on Economic Policy and Business, and a leading member of the majority United Russia party, has made a stark warning about World War III. Posted as a video interview on Pravda.ru’s blog site nearly three weeks ago, on October 2, the statement has only this past week been circulated by Pravda.ru and other media in written form. Pravda.ru summarized: “He believes that the United States is preparing the grounds for starting World War III. Their plan is to combine all local conflicts together. The United States, when speaking about the fight against terrorism, in fact relies on extremism and terrorism.”

Fyodorov said, “Currently, the world is beginning to slide into a complete destabilization that will inevitably end in a World War. … This is like when the Soviet Union, fighting in Afghanistan, was actually dealing not with the Mujahideen, but with the Americans, bin Laden and the American Stinger missiles. It was part of a global showdown and, actually, a World War between the Soviet Union and the United States of America. The U.S.S.R. lost that war, was eliminated and enslaved.

“The next act in the script is launching a global fire, unleashing a world war, in a sense combining all the local conflicts into a single system of instability. For this purpose, there is a dramatic increase in funding for terrorism. Currently the U.S.A. has dramatically increased funding for terrorism worldwide. The Americans will now act indiscriminately, that is, without consideration of whether they are giving to allies or not allies, friends or not friends.

“Take the situation in Greece. Is Greece an enemy of America? But the Americans lowered its ratings and launched the European crisis. Is Egypt an enemy of America? No. But funding was provided, and an ‘Orange Revolution’ was organized. … The growth and rise of extremism is part of the course towards World War III that the Americans are after.”

Trained as a military engineer, Fyodorov is an Afghanistan veteran with a degree in economics. He has served in various government positions, including as deputy minister of atomic energy in 1999-2001. Though he is a member of the majority party, Fyodorov styles himself as a maverick. His website captions his photo as follows: “Fired from all his jobs because of supporting sovereignty.” In a 2010 interview on Finam. FM radio, Fyodorov said that the main problem of the Russian economy is that it remains heavily owned from offshore, which he called a legacy of “the Chicago boys” and “10,000 American consultants,” who created the Russian financial oligarchy in the 1990s. (“Chicago boys” refers to the Anglophile liberal economists of the Chicago School, once dubbed by former Vice President Alexander Rutskoy “the Chicago boys in pink pantaloons”) (3) – emphasis added

Russia to liberate the world from US occupation

A State Duma deputy, the head of the Committee on Economic Policy and Entrepreneurship of the Russian State Duma, Yevgeny Fyodorov, told Pravda.Ru of his impressions from visiting the APEC summit in Vladivostok. According to him, the meeting showed that the U.S. gradually loses absolute power in the world economy and politics. The power and influence of other countries, such as Russia and China, grows against such a background.

State Duma deputy, the head of the Committee on Economic Policy and Entrepreneurship of the Russian State Duma Yevgeny Fyodorov:

“APEC is a very interesting and important event, although it seems to be an ordinary one. The leaders get together and discuss important issues, but in reality it is the key event in today’s global scenario. With the onset of the global economic crisis,with political and economic turbulence, the APEC is a key event in terms of the demonstration of new vectors of unity of the international community outside the United States.

It is clear that it is not a split – everyone still plays by American rules, but the countries already demonstrate their independence in economic policy. I was there and saw how angry Mrs. Hillary Clinton was when she came from China, where several Chinese leaders – especially those who are to become top officials of China next year – did not even want to meet her. In China, Clinton was told no when she wanted to take on mediator’s functions in resolving China’s territorial disputes with Asian countries.

She also heard no in response to her requirement to set the yuan rate. It is an annual requirement of the United States to China to set the yuan rate for political reasons to pump resources and opportunities from China to the U.S. It is an additional form of tribute from China, which China had to deal with every year for political motives. Nowadays, the U.S. was refused. The world is changing.

Russian President Vladimir Putin clearly expressed his attitude to the dollar as the world reserve currency. In fact, he offered the countries of the world to start building a large number of regional currencies as an alternative to the reserve system of the dollar. This is a strong step and a strong move, including the initiative to switch to mutual payments. He also said that Russia and China had already switched to the system and he urged other countries to follow the example. This shows that the world begins to change fundamentally, and Russia’s role at this point is to become the leader in changing the world. I would say that Putin as the leader of the national liberation movement in Russia, demonstrated himself at the event as a leader and provider of ideas for the world national liberation movement against the system of occupation, which was formed after 1991 not only about Russia but also China and many other countries.

From this point of view, it is the key and turning meeting of the leaders of world’s largest economies, which creates conditions to reformat the entire economic system of the world – moving away from the U.S. Do not forget that the U.S. consumes a half the world’s GDP, despite the fact that there is only 4.5 percent of the population living there. In other words, they eat ten times as much as compared to the citizens of all other countries. And they eat at the expense of China, Russia, India, Brazil – all other countries.

Today, the world begins to unite against the colonizer – USA. For the time being, it is a conceptual and preparatory process, but it takes place. In this regard, I would call the preliminary results of the meeting in the Far East the meeting of the future members of the world national liberation movement to free the world from the U.S. occupation.
