US Conference of Mayors Denounces Obama's Nuclear War Provocations
The US Conference of Mayors, in its annual meeting from June 24-27 in Indianapolis, issued a scathing attack on the Obama Administration, directly targeting the massive NATO exercises now taking place on Russia's border, Obama's $1 trillion modernization of nuclear weapons, his failure to take significant action to reduce nuclear weapons, his belligerent policy toward Russia and China, and his disregard for the drastic collapse within the US of basic infrastructure and the general welfare of the people. It is of note that not one major US newspaper even reported this action.
The Mayors Conference took place at the same time as an historic Schiller Institute Conference in Berlin, in which Helga Zepp-LaRouche began her keynote speech saying that
The Mayors' Resolution, while offering feint praise for Obama's visit to Hiroshima and his conclusion of a deal with Iran, then states:
It directly contrasts this danger and vast waste of resources to the collapsing US economy:
The Resolution does not make the demand (which should have been obvious) that this President must be immediately removed for the crime described — i.e., creating an imminent existential threat to humanity through thermonuclear war. Rather, it merely calls for "the next President" to take action. Nonetheless, it demands that "as an urgent matter, new diplomatic initiatives [be taken] to lower tensions with Russia and China."
What is lacking, of course, is the solution, and therein lies the crucial difference between the Mayor's Conference and that of the Schiller Institute in Berlin. Zepp-LaRouche told the audience in Berlin:
Indeed, nearly every speaker addressed the urgency of implementing the solutions long associated with Lyndon and Helga LaRouche — the reorganization of the bankrupt western financial system through Glass-Steagall legislation in the US and Europe, and the extension of China's New Silk Road initiative to the entire world, ending geopolitics in favor of development projects meeting the common aims of mankind.
The courage of the US Conference of Mayors, a non-partisan institution representing all the cities in the US with over 30,000 in population, in identifying the onrushing threat of global thermonuclear war, places an even greater responsibility on each American — to mobilize these mayors, and their constituents, to implement LaRouche's program, before Obama can push the button.
