The Time Has Come To Eliminate Poverty, and Provide a Future for Our Children

The Time Has Come To Eliminate Poverty, and Provide a Future for Our Children

The reported departure of National Security Adviser and soon to be retired three star general H.R. McMaster from the Trump White House may be a positive sign. However, cabinet members and neocon advisers like UN Ambassador Nikki Haley who have egged on this President against his better instincts and campaign promises to get further bogged down in illegally occupying Syria, using defeated Daesh remnants as a pretext to keep thousands of troops in the country while admitting that Iran is the real target of this occupation, remain in place. The danger of a false flag, further aggression carried out by Israel or Washington's NATO ally Turkey, or even inadvertent clashes between American and Russian forces quickly escalating remains intolerable. The long suffering Syrian people, as well as citizens of all countries interested in global peace and stability, deserve better.

The BRI and the Dialogue of Cultures: The Highest Expression of Each Culture

Schiller Institute President Helga Zepp-LaRouche gave a keynote address to the Maritime Silk Road conference in Zhuhai, in China’s Guangdong Province, on Nov. 29. Her address has been edited.

You, the Chinese people, find yourselves at a very decisive moment in history, and I know that after President Xi Jinping put the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) on the agenda a little over four years ago, and the tremendous success of the policy of a New Silk Road since then, that you are completely aware of the extraordinary role China is now playing from the standpoint of the universal history of mankind. But let me share with you the view of a German—or actually, I see myself as an universal citizen, looking at what China is doing from the outside, from an international perspective.

Xi Appeals to Trump: Let Us "Look Far Ahead and Aim High"

Xi Appeals to Trump: Let Us "Look Far Ahead and Aim High"

On the eve of Donald Trump's trip to Asia, Chinese President Xi Jinping is taking steps to actively shape the tone and content of his upcoming Nov. 8 summit meeting with President Trump, as well as to weave Russia and India into the emerging New Paradigm.

Wall Street, 'The Frog In The Well' Croaks To Trump Against China

President Trump leaves in two weeks for an 11-day trip to Asia which includes summits with President Xi of China, Prime Minister Abe of Japan, Presidents Duterte of the Philippines and Moon of South Korea, and, according to the White House Monday, perhaps with President Putin at the APEC meeting. The attacks against China's Belt and Road Initiative in the U.S. financial and national media have become a sustained roar, as Wall Street's apprehension grows that Trump may discuss cooperative infrastructure projects and financing with Xi, above all; perhaps with Abe; and even with Duterte, who is presently one recipient of substantial, long-needed infrastructure financing and engineering from China.

The President could initiate the United States joining the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank; joining the Belt and Road Initiative, as EIR and LaRouchePAC have been describing since 2014.
