‘Putin Has Just Demonstrated the Principle of the Flank’

RUSSIA CHINA USA Youtube 1

Inside, outside, and at great distance from the United Nations on Manhattan’s East Side today, it was obvious that Russian President Vladimir Putin is changing the strategic shape of world events, and has substantial support among Americans as well for a real international coalition to defeat terrorism.

Putin’s UN speech defending the Franklin Roosevelt-originated Charter of that organization, was blunt and effective. He said that rapidly spreading terrorism,  impoverishment, and loss of respect for life has been generated across the Mideast,  North Africa and South Asia by regime change wars, or “wars for democracy, ” which are in violation of that UN Charter and of international law, and that this devastation would spread until it were stopped. “We can no longer stand the state of
the world.”

A “phenomenally successful” all-day rally outside the UN by 40 LaRouchePAC activists found extraordinary receptivity to its banner message: “Obama: Help World Peace. Resign.” The completely phony war Obama’s “60-nation coalition” is
supposedly fighting against the ISIS terrorists has descended to a couple of airstrikes a day while captured U.S. weapons and U.S. “allies’ ” support for ISIS/al-Qaeda has swelled the terrorists’ fighting ranks to well over 30, 000 in Syria and Iraq alone.

As if “out of nowhere, ” however, a new coalition, actually to fight the terrorists,  is rapidly emerging around Putin’s Russian initiative, backed by China, into Syria Change is sweeping across Europe, as well as the Middle East, in regard to the
acceptance of this initiative.

EIR Founding Editor Lyndon LaRouche was asked by media to comment on Putin’s two-hour CBS interview. In discussion with the LaRouchePAC Policy Committee Monday, LaRouche said that a fundamental change in policy is occurring, which is revolutionary. Wall Street is also collapsing. The world will soon represent something different for mankind, he said. And this, in a period when there is no longer a belief in the discovery of fundamentally new principles-physical, economic, or political!

Putin, he said, has just demonstrated the principle of the flank-against a crucial point of complete failure of Obama’s policies, and has thrown the Obama White House into confusion and anger.

China’s President Xi, meanwhile, announced still another $100 billion commitment, through the UN, to international infrastructure development. The “win-win, ” or Confucian economic development policy of China is integral to the global shift in policy underway.

Obama’s most effective contribution to it? Resign.

Helga Zepp-LaRouche Takes Lead Chinese Radio International Discussion of China-U.S. Relations

Sept. 28 (EIRNS)-Schiller Institute Founder Helga-Zepp LaRouche was interviewed by phone as part of a panel of experts in a 55-minute news discussion of China-U.S. relations on China Radio International News Show on Sept. 25, hosted by Liu Kun and Brian Kopczynski. Other guests included three academic China-U.S. Relations experts: Prof. Tao Wenzhao of the Chinese Academy of Social Science; Prof. Rick Dunham, Tsinghua University, and Prof. Mark Beeson of the University of Western Australia.

China Radio International is the state-owned international radio broadcaster of the People’s Republic of China.

The first question was, “What makes the two political giants, China and the U.S. like each other, and what turns them apart?” Zepp-LaRouche replied, “It is extremely important that the two most important countries in the world in terms of size and power have a stable relationship; the better part of the U.S. is looking at China from that standpoint. On President Xi’s part, he has made it very clear that he wants to open up with the ‘win-win’ policy. However, now, I really think there is a complete disparity right now between how the two countries go about things.”
The interviewer noted that “only USA Today had a headline on President Xi’s visit.”

“How does China fit into the current global strategy of the U.S., and viceversa?”
was the next question. Zepp-LaRouche replied, “I think the various proposals coming from China, which I think are very much based on the Confucian conception that the world can only function if it’s based on a harmonious relation among nations, is really the key. This is expressed in President Xi’s offer of win-win cooperation; actually, he invited Obama to cooperate with China last year at the APEC meeting on the New Silk Road; on the One Road, One Belt policy, together with the idea of having a new model among major nations. It’s a completely different concept of international relations among nations based on sovereignty,
mutual respect, and recognition of different social systems. I think that is the model which is right now very attractive, and which has been adopted by the BRICS countries; it reaches out to ASEAN, and also to Ibero-American countries, who
enjoy that kind of win-win cooperation with China.

“I think, from the Chinese standpoint, the biggest problem and hope, at the same time, would be that the United States responds to that-the offer to the U.S. is still on the table, and I think various Chinese media have repeated that offer: that the
Europeans, the United States, and China should cooperate.

“I can only hope that the U.S., which is in deep trouble right now-I mean, its financial system is in terrible shape; many people say it’s worse than 2008; you could have a major blowout of the financial system at any moment. And the only way the U.S. could get out of it would be if the U.S. would see that chance in that offer right now; you have an a major divide: some people see it would be absolutely in the interest of the U.S., and it should cooperate; others say no, we are the only leader in the world-the only major power; Russia is only a regional power, and China should be contained….

“Even Joint Chiefs of Staff head Gen. Martin Dempsey has warned that the U.S. should not walk into a Thucydides trap and see China as a threat, and try to go to war. And if the U.S. JCS head is warning of that, he must have a good reason.”
The professors then discussed the Chinese economy’s drop, citing a statistic from Moody’s Analytics that for every 1% drop in the Chinese economy, U.S. growth drops 0.2%, as exemplifying its ripple effect on the world.

Zepp-LaRouche interrupted: “I would like to comment on this; there is a very big difference, because the U.S. economy is mainly asset-driven-very much assetdriven; very much Wall Street; very much monetarist values, where the Chinese economy for the most part is based on real economy. China has incredible industrial growth; it is engaged in industrial projects with countries around the world.

“So even if there was a little problem with the stock market in China, it is much less significant. Wall Street is absolutely bankrupt. I would not compare these two economies in this way. The reality is that Wall Street is absolutely bankrupt. The
real economy in the U.S. is in absolutely terrible condition. The fact that the Chinese economy has started to branch out to many parts of the world gives the Chinese economy more substance and validity.”
