THE THREAT FROM A U.S.-EU-NATO BACKED, NAZI COUP IN UKRAINE:
EITHER WE FACE EXTINCTION OR WE WIN THE COMMON AIMS OF MANKIND

Feb. 12 — Helga Zepp-LaRouche made the following keynote remarks
to a private luncheon in Washington, D.C. She was introduced by
{EIR} Washington Bureau Chief Bill Jones.

HELGA ZEPP-LAROUCHE: Hello, good day. I would like to start with
a prognosis of my husband, Mr. LaRouche. And for those of you
who know of him or who know him, I can say that Mr. LaRouche is
differentiated from other economists and statesmen through the
fact that his prognoses have never been wrong, both in terms of
the prediction of the systemic collapse of the financial system,
and many other occasions. And he has recently issued the warning
that if the present policy in Ukraine by the United States, by
the EU, and by NATO, is continued, that we may have a
thermonuclear war by the end of February or the beginning of
March.
Now, for some of you, this may sound dramatic, but the
situation {is} dramatic. And just yesterday, two relevant
Russian groupings, or in one case a person, and in another one a
grouping, confirmed their absolute concern that there {is} Nazi
coup in Ukraine under way. One was Gen. Leonid Ivashov, who is
now with the Geopolitical Institute, who basically accused the
West of using Goebbels’ propaganda, that, he says that he hopes
the Foreign Ministry of Russia is already aware of the fact that
a war has started, and that the first phase of this was is an
information war by basically lying.
Now, there are a lot of lies going on: One lie is that the
West, and in the United States, to my knowledge there has been
one single newspaper article pointing to the fact that the
so-called opposition in Ukraine, is made of, largely and
dominated in terms of its violent aspects, by Nazi groups,
people who openly refer to Stepan Bandera, the Nazi collaborator
in the ’40s who helped to prepare the invasion in Ukraine, and
such people as the Svoboda party and other groupings, right-wing
extremist groupings openly follow this tradition.
Now, why is it that the West, at least in the United States,
is portraying this opposition as something completely different,
a freedom-loving people, who want to join democracy, who want to
join the European Union, and where an evil dictator, Yanukovych,
who is sympathetic to an even more evil dictator, Putin, are
trying to prevent these peace-loving people from joining
democracy and the West? That is the picture which you hear. Why
are they not telling the truth! That these people have committed
violence, they have thrown molotov cocktails, they have occupied
a ministry, they have organized violent takeovers throughout the
whole country, they are wearing openly Nazi symbols, they have
swastikas in their logo; and you know, I wrote recently an
article, if the same thing would happen, I said, if the same
thing would happen in Berlin, and the NPD, which is the neo-Nazi
party there, would occupy a ministry, would have violent
demonstrations in front of the Chancellor’s office, organize
militant takeovers throughout the whole country, what would the
police do? They would smash it, and try to calm it down. So why
is there such a lying presentation of this?
Now, this has to be seen in the context of the effort to
continue the NATO East expansion which started immediately after
the collapse of the Soviet Union. When the Soviet Union
collapsed, between 1989 and ’91, basically, there was an
agreement probably between Mr. Gorbachov and Mr. Kohl and Mr.
Genscher, that there would be never an eastward expansion of
NATO, and there would be never foreign troops east of the Elbe.
Then in 1994, there was another agreement, that basically in
the Budapest Memorandum signed between the United States, Great
Britain, and Russia, that the territory of Ukraine would be
guaranteed by these three nations, and that basically, if there
would be a threat to either the security of the country, that
both would come and protect it, {and} there would be no economic
coercion.
Well, all of these have clearly been violated. Now, how was
this recent development triggered? End of November, when at the
EU summit in Vilnius, all of a sudden, Yanukovych in the last
minute refused to sign the EU Association Agreement. Now, it is
very likely, almost certain, that one part of that agreement
included a military part, whereby in the medium term, NATO would
have had access to the territory of Ukraine, and that was one of
the reasons why it became very clear that for Ukraine to sign the
EU Association Agreement would have been practically suicide:
First of all, it would have destroyed the Ukraine economy and
turned Ukraine very quickly into the new Greece, eastward, west
of the Russian border; because contrary to the mythologies, the
EU is not in tremendous condition. The EU is disintegrating.
There is a very great likelihood that the EU may not outlive this
present year of 2014.
Now, what then happened was a provocation, where these
elements, which according to President Putin had been prepared
for the Presidential election in 2015 were activated. And you
know, this is not just a sudden eruption, but one has to see that
the whole eastward extension of NATO really started with the
collapse of the Soviet Union, when you had in the United States,
existence in power of the neo-cons around Bush Sr.; and the
neo-cons had the New American Century doctrine, which was the
idea that, instead of using the historic opportunity which the
collapse of communism had represented, because there was no more
enemy and it would have been very easy to establish a peace order
for the 21st century. Instead, Bush Sr., and Margaret Thatcher,
and also Mitterrand decided to go in a different direction, and
especially between Bush Sr. and Margaret Thatcher, they decided
to build a new empire based on the special relationship between
the United States and Great Britain, and go for a policy of
regime change, practically against every country which would
oppose that.
Now, in that context, in Ukraine, there developed 2,200
NGOs, who built networks of anti-Russian conviction, people who
would in part be activists and just paid, like in Maidan, most
people get paid $50 a day plus food for their demonstrations, and
others who are just full of illusion. Naturally, if you have
young people who are hedonistic and you promise them freedom,
then you can build up networks. So over 22 years, these
anti-Russian networks have been built up, and basically at the
same time, you had the eastward extension of NATO and also the
EU, which have become more and more integrated and identical.
And you have to see that what is now the danger: You have a
situation where Ukraine as a result of this, is almost at civil
war, and there can be a debate if the civil war has already
erupted. Now, the Izborsk Club, which is a group of influential
intellectuals just issued yesterday, a memorandum where they said
that the aim is very clearly, to get rid of Yanukovych, to put
Tymoshenko or Klitschko into office based on a right-wing
extremist coalition, drive out the Russians from Sevastopol, deny
them access to the Black Sea, and basically have then a
continuation of that: Destroy the industry in the eastern parts
of Ukraine which are linked to the military-industry complex of
Russia, and then carry out the Maidan tactic into Russian cities,
and eventually get rid of Putin.
Now, it is very clear that this is an unacceptable situation
for Russia, because you have to see that this part of the
military deployments. The U.S. missile defense system in Poland,
in Romania, and two days ago, the deployment of the {USS Donald
Cook} Aegis destroyer is part of a missile defense system where
Russia has declared many times that it is {not} acceptable for
them, because the aim is obviously not some missiles in Iran, but
the very position where this missile defense system is, it’s
aimed to take out the second-strike capability of Russia. And
they have declared they will not allow that this U.S. missile
defense system is being built beyond a certain point, because
Russia would become indefensible after that situation.
So therefore, we are looking at a situation in the short
term of a Russian counter-reaction. There are some people in
military circles in Western Europe who think that you may look at
a replay of what happened in at the end of the Beijing Olympic
Games, that after the Sochi Olympic Games are over, that a
Russian reaction could be like in Ossetia in 2008. I would not
count on such timetables, because the situation is — you know,
we are on the verge of World War III, right now, and it could
happen much, much earlier.
In addition to the U.S. missile defense system, is the
Prompt Global Strike doctrine, which is a doctrine which is
basically using traditional ICBM missiles, but with non-nuclear
weapons, also supposedly to be able to take out the second-strike
capability. And you have to also take into account that the
“Asia pivot” policy, the so-called Air-Sea Battle doctrine
against China, is characterized by the same illusion and utopian
idea that you can take out the second-strike capability of China.
Now, China has made very clear that they will not
capitulate. In October, on one Monday, all the Chinese
publications published maps where they pointed to the fact that
they have 70 strategic submarines in the Pacific off the West
Coast of the United States, and they could hit the entire West
Coast with nuclear weapons as a second strike, and they have maps
where you can see the radioactive fallout going all the way to
Chicago, and then, how you would have a second line going over
the North Pole, hitting the East Coast.
Similarly, the Russian joint chiefs of staff had a
conference in Moscow, I think it was almost two years ago, where
they showed video animations, where they show that the U.S.
missile defense system is targetting Russian capabilities and why
they can not accept that. And even the Chief of Staff General
Markarov at that point said that the Russians may be forced to go
into a first strike, when it becomes clear that if they wait any
longer their position becomes indefensible.
So therefore, when my husband says that we are looking at
the short-term confrontation and that we must change the agenda,
I mean, all the evidence points to the fact that this is under
way. And the fortunate publication of the YouTube discussion
between Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and the
Ambassador Pyatt, there was a big hoopla about it, naturally, and
the Western media immediately tried to play it down and say, “Oh,
she’s used to this profane language.” Now, I’m not interested in
the sexual preferences of Mrs. Nuland, but what I’m very
interested in, is what it really refers to, namely, that this is
a total interference into the internal affairs of Ukraine, it
shows that they are managing {by the minute} how this process
goes, and it is a total, total violation of every form of
international treaties and diplomacy.
And it is not a surprise, because, if you look at the career
of Mrs. Nuland: First of all, she is married to Robert Kagan, who
is an arch-neo-con. He was in the Old Bush administration, and
one of the authors designing this idea of NATO eastward extension
and encirclement of Russia and China. So that she would then
basically be in Kiev, or wherever this phone call was made, and
was caught, and then, there was a complete cover-up, and that
there is absolutely {no} mentioning of the true Nazi character of
coup in Ukraine is really absolutely incredible.
Now, I think that the immediate danger is not just in this
long-term preparation, but it has to do with the fact that the
Western trans-Atlantic financial system is about to blow. I
think that the only reason why, after the collapse of Lehman
Brothers in 2008, the system didn’t go bankrupt, was because all
the major central banks decided to go for quantitative easing, to
print money, to do what the Reichsbank did between 1919 and 1923,
just to print money. And at the same, go for bailouts, and they
realize this is now not enough, so they have the mechanism of
“bail-in,” which we have seen in the Cyprus model which means the
expropriation of people who have savings accounts above
EU100,000, but if it comes to a crash, it would be even worse.
Now, all this money printing, naturally, has the danger of
hyperinflation, which is already building up in a gigantic
bubble. And that is why there has been since a long time, a
debate in the Fed and other places, about the need to reverse
that. And there was a general recognition that you can not
reverse it, because if you start to take the liquidity out of
this bubble, the danger is that it busts.
Now, in the recent period, Mr. Bernanke decided to go for
the so-called “tapering,” meaning to reduce the liquidity
injection from $85 billion a month, to first, $75 billion, and
now $65, but, exactly as was to be expected, this has already
shown tremendous reactions by the collapse of the currencies of
the so-called “emerging markets,” and capital flight out of these
countries. And the BIS recently put out a statement that they
are totally against this “tapering” of the Fed, because it
involves the danger of a catastrophic development, meaning a
blowout of the system.
Now, we are on the verge of such a blowout and that collapse
of the financial system is what decides the speed of this
adventure towards Russia.
So, I think what we need to do, is first of all, and one of
the reasons why we have this luncheon, we have also prepared
written materials for you, I think it is {extremely} important
that the character of the coup in Ukraine is made known.
Fortunately, there were some papers in Germany by now, the
{Guardian}, also {Time} magazine, {Stern} and others, published
the Nazi character, even so in much too mild fashion. But it must
become known: This is a Nazi coup, and this is the danger to
world peace!
Then, in addition to that, we are working very hard, my
husband in particular, to try every possible to get patriots of
the United States to return the United States back to its
Constitution. And that is for me not to comment on, but there is
a big effort by American patriots to do exactly that.
But I think internationally, it is extremely clear, if we
continue on the present course of action, you know, the extreme
financial free-market economy which has led to a situation where
the gap between rich and poor has become intolerable! Recently a
report was published that 85 individuals own as much as 3.5
{billion} people! Entire regions of the world are dying; Africa
is dying, many other places are in a terrible condition. If you
take the entire region from Afghanistan, Pakistan, to Syria, to
North Africa, to Central Africa, this is a region which is in
{total} chaos. The policy of regime-change in Iraq, in Libya, in
Syria, has created Hell on Earth: This area is dominated by
terrorists, by people who are receiving their money from the
money laundering from the drug production in Afghanistan, which
has increased by 40 times since NATO has moved into Afghanistan
12 years ago, this is what sponsors the terrorism, this was what
was responsible for the terrorism in Volgograd.
So I can give you many more aspects, but one thing is very
clear: If we continue on the present course, the likelihood that
human civilization will not exist beyond next month is very high.
And we must have a dramatic, dramatic change of the paradigm:
There is {no reason} why we can not have an international
security agreement, including Russia, including China, in which
the United States would cooperate in joint missile defense, with
Russia, China, the Europeans, where we would concentrate on the
common aims of mankind, such as defense of the planet against
asteroids, comets, and other objects.
There are many issues where mankind {must work together} if
we are not going to make ourselves extinct, and it is the
question, do we have enough people who have the intelligence and
the morality to recognize that in time, so that we can avoid a
human catastrophe, and possibly the extinction of civilization?
