Dump Obama or Face Thermonuclear War of Extinction

November 25, 2015

British agent Barack Obama was behind the Turkish shoot-down of the Russian Su-24 over Syrian airspace on Tuesday, Nov. 24, and the Russian government has made clear that it is fully aware of the Obama complicity. In a phone conversation with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov pointed out that, under the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding on deconfliction that the U.S. and Russia recently signed, the U.S. took responsibility for the actions of all of the so-called Coalition partners. More to the point, Lavrov pointed out that the attack on the Russian plane was carried out by a U.S. manufactured F-16, and there are binding understandings that offensive operations using U.S. made planes must be pre-cleared.

In the immediate aftermath of the shooting down of the Russian jet, President Obama made a point of getting on the phone with Turkish President Erdogan, and assuring him that the U.S. fully supported his "sovereign" actions. In his disgusting press conference with visiting French President Hollande on Tuesday afternoon, Obama launched into a megalomaniacal attack on Putin and Russia, calling them "the outliers" and "offering" Russia one last chance to join the U.S. led "Coalition" doing the real fighting against ISIS.

Obama was doing what he does best—lying, pathologically, on behalf of his British masters. For the longest time, the British Crown strategy has been to provoke war between the United States and Russia, and to fuel a permanent population war within the Muslim world, between Sunni and Shia, using their Saudi junior partners as the chief provocateurs. Now, Turkey, under the corrupt Erdogan regime, has been brought into the mix, to stir up the conditions for world war. Obama has been the principle asset of this British war strategy ever since he came into office, and kicked off his first term by visiting Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles in London three months after his inauguration.

A growing number of analysts have joined Lyndon LaRouche in calling the shot on Obama's complicity in the Turkish actions of Tuesday. John Helmer in Moscow, Justin Raimondo, Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Peace Institute, and Pepe Escobar have all come out in the last 24 hours, saying that Erdogan would have never launched the action against the Russian jet without prior approval from Obama.

In response to the Turkish attack, President Putin has announced a number of immediate military counter-measures, including the deployment of the most advanced S-400 air defense systems to the Russian air base in Latakia Province in Syria, the stationing of a surface-to-air missile ship off the Syrian coast, and the beefing up of intercept escorts for all future Russian bombing runs against ISIS targets in Syria. The Russian government made clear that they have evidence, including the heat trail from the Su-24, showing that it never entered Turkish airspace. An unnamed US official told Reuters and other news agencies that the Russian plane was shot down over Syrian airspace, after a very brief passage through Turkish airspace, that could not have lasted more than a few seconds. The attack was pre-planned, pre-meditated, and aimed at wrecking the post-Paris attacks climate, in which a potential for a settlement of the five-year Syrian war and a concentrated campaign to destroy ISIS and Nusra was in the making.

Putin will respond with a flanking attack, in line with his September deployment of Russian forces into Syria, that fundamentally altered the direction of the conflict.

If there was any doubt that this is a global British/Obama- led war drive against Russia, just look at Ukraine, where the Right Sector has been bombing power lines into Crimea, and where Victoria Nuland's pet, Yatsenyuk, just announced he was barring Russian planes from any access to Ukrainian air space. That is tantamount to a threat to shoot down a Russian plane at any moment.

The biggest vulnerability of the British in this war drive is Barack Obama. He has committed crimes against humanity, and so many impeachable crimes that he only remains in office due to the cowardice and opportunism of most members of Congress and the American people, who tolerate his existence at the risk of their own survival.

Kerry: No Binding Agreement at COP 21; Hollande Throws a Fit

US Secretary of State John Kerry told the Financial Times on Wednesday in regard to the COP 21 Global Warming Conference in Paris: "It's definitively not going to be a treaty... They're not going to be legally binding reduction targets like Kyoto or something."

French President Hollande went berzerk. "If the agreement is not legally binding, there will be no agreement," he told the international press in Malta on the sidelines of the EU-Africa migration conference. "I know how difficult it is," Hollande said, in reference to the opposition to a binding agreement in the US Congress. "But we must give the Paris agreement, if there is one, a binding character in the sense that the commitments that are made must be kept and respected."

The Guardian reported that a global poll last week found that residents of China and the US were among the least concerned about climate change.

The spokesman for the EU Climate Commission, Miquel Arias Canete, said in response to Kerry's comment, "The Paris agreement must be an international legally binding agreement." French foreign minister, Laurent Fabius had said it was obvious that any agreement in Paris would contain legally binding elements, and suggested that Kerry was "confused" about the point.

It is not just the US Congress, of course, but India and China, which will not submit to binding suicide in Paris, as they refused to do in Copenhagen in 2009.

There is no comment as yet from the White House.


Russia's IMF Director: Next Crisis Will Find Us Unprepared

An event held at the Russian Embassy titled "BRICS 2.0—A Metamorphosis of Globalization," sponsored by Russia Direct, a monthly magazine with news on Russia, brought together some pro-BRICS intellectuals to counter much of the recent slander about the alleged imminent break-up of the BRICS. While much of what they said was of some interest, most of the presentations were narrowly focused on particular items of the BRICS agenda, without really getting to the heart of the matter.

Most interesting, however, was the presentation by Aleksei Mozhin, the Executive Director of the IMF for Russia.  He noted that the BRICS configuration came out of the aftermath of the G20 Pittsburgh summit in 2009. 

"It was not accidental that it occurred at that time in the midst of the global financial crisis," which was characterized by "a loss of trust in the financial institutions and in the advice of the 'financial experts.'"  He said the present system dated back to August 1971, with Nixon's decision to leave the gold standard, and this led to floating exchange rates.  "Nobody is happy with the international system," Mozhin said.  "The distribution of the voting power in the IMF is totally absurd."

In the Q&A, the first question was asked by EIR's Bill Jones.  Referring positively to what Mozhin had said, Jones continued, "That crisis is still ongoing and getting worse.  One too-big-to-fail bank today would set off an unequaled systemic crisis.  Total debt, including derivatives and other exotic instruments, is estimated at $2 quadrillion.  This can never be paid, no matter how much austerity is imposed on the world's population.  The establishment of the BRICS and AIIB, as well as the Silk Road Economic Belt, represents a new trajectory, away from the insanity of a bankrupt speculative financial system, toward a system based on credit for infrastructure.  While Europe and the U.S. still feel that they are stakeholders in this failed system, the reality of the economic collapse will force them to revise that judgment.  And anyone who looks at the total collapse of infrastructure in the United States will understand the mood-swings. This trajectory, of BRICS, the AIIB, and the Silk Road, is the only possible trajectory for humanity today, because continuing on the other path will lead to total devastation."

Almost all of the speakers nodded agreement as Jones spoke.

Mozhin responded,

"I agree with everything you have said. There is a massive debt overhang.  Japan is at the top of the list.  And this includes both public and private debt.  It is a very fragile situation, and the next financial crisis will find us unprepared to deal with it.  The attempt to maintain a zero interest-rate means we will not have the tools we had during the last crisis, and it has created many distortions.  96% of incremental income has been going to 1% of the population.  And there is a very high level of public indebtedness."
