What keeps the Empire awake at night
The political situation globally is extremely fluid, and
while exceedingly dangerous it also carries immense opportunities
for rapid and radical change. For decades the Citizens
Electoral Council and our international associates have
planted the seeds for the policy changes required to launch
an economic renaissance. Green shoots from many of those
seeds have already sprung up, such as the New Silk Road and
World Land-Bridge; others—such as a four-power collaboration
between the USA, Russia, China and India, reviving the
American System of economics, and financial reform exemplified
by "Glass-Steagall"—are beginning to break through.
Between the proximity of a new global financial crash
and the threat that it would tip the aforementioned policy
changes into reality, the Anglo-American establishment,
which still has a white-knuckle grip on the institutions surrounding
the US presidency, is desperate. They will use every
tool at hand, every time-bomb they have planted over
recent decades, every available agent of influence, to steer
the world towards war.
On 15 April, UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson called
for joint Anglo-American action to remove Syrian President
Bashar al-Assad from power. Admitting that under Trump
Britain's longstanding goal of regime change had been stymied,
Johnson crowed: "And then came the attack on Khan
Britain was so successful in using this alleged but unproven
attack to put regime change back on the agenda
that Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on 11 April
that more such chemical weapons attacks are planned as
"provocations" to derail the peace process. The Guardian of
London openly threatened Assad with a "Libyan-style outcome",
i.e. murder, the fate of Muammar Gaddafi. What
would be the effect of taking Assad out? We saw it in Iraq
and Libya! Ex-NATO General Harald Kujat summed it up:
"If Assad leaves now, the Syrian army will collapse and
there will no longer be ground forces that can defeat ISIS."
Had Trump kept his promise and rolled back American
participation in regime change in the Middle East, peace on
the Korean Peninsula would already be a work in progress.
North Korea was not a threat to the world before Anglo-American
war threats made it so. Under the administration of US
President Bill Clinton, negotiations with North Korea were
very successful, establishing cooperation for nuclear power
production which would not yield plutonium for weapons
use. But under his successors George W. Bush and Barack
Obama, this potential was ripped apart by regime-change
operations against Iraq and Libya—both nations which had
agreed to give up their weapons programs and submit to the
invasive procedures of international authorities, but were
bombed back to the Stone Age nonetheless. It was then that
North Korea scaled up its weapons program in earnest.
On 8 March, on the sidelines of the 12th National People's
Congress, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi proposed
a "double suspension" action to bring all parties back to the
negotiating table. North Korea "may suspend its nuclear and
missile activities in exchange for the suspension of largescale
US-Republic of Korea (ROK) military exercises", said
Wang. This is an approach North Korea has reportedly proffered
to the US repeatedly, but in the post-Clinton period no
government has yet taken it up. As US exercises are always
timed to coincide with North Korea's planting and harvest
seasons, for which they require military involvement, ending
them would have a major, desirable impact on its economy.
In reality, destabilisation of the region is aimed at China,
just as the Syria crisis is aimed at Russia. Britain's intention
is to prevent US cooperation with both Russia and
China. They have achieved this, at least temporarily, with
Trump, but have exposed themselves in the process. On
12 April Russia's UN ambassador said his British counterpart
had "lost sleep" over the prospect of US-Russia cooperation
(p. 3). Such clarity on imperial Britain's role as the
spoiler and warmonger is rare, and weakens its ability to
manipulate future crises.
