Nuland & Kagan leading the USA to WW111 with Russia over Ukraine

To Stop World War, Nuland Must Be Replaced Immediately

President Barack Obama has shamelessly flaunted his British neo-conservative colors in his enthusiastic backing for Victoria Nuland, in her prominent role in provoking a direct confrontation with Russia. Her efforts have now reached the point that her continuation as Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs leaves the world on the edge of global showdown, including the growing prospect of a thermonuclear war of extinction.

Lyndon LaRouche on Friday demanded her immediate removal. “Nuland has to be removed from her post. By doing that we reduce the immediate danger of world war,” LaRouche declared. LaRouche also cited German Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose own reckless attacks on Russian President Putin have contributed greatly to the intensified war danger.

Merkel’s insanity has provoked a growing chorus of leading German figures, including former Chancellor Schröder and former President Herzog, to join in calling for a renewal of German-Russian and European-Russian dialogue and cooperation. A full-page ad to this effect has appeared in the current issue of the prestigious Die Zeit weekly in Germany on Friday.

The bill of indictment against Nuland is clear. She has been the point person within the Obama Administration, promoting confrontation with Russia. She was the architect of the regime-change effort in Ukraine over the past year, using neo-Nazi elements from the Right Sector and other Banderist remnants, to overthrow a legitimately elected government; and when the European Union and Russia came close to reaching a diplomatic agreement to clear the Maidan Square in February 2014, and end the violence, she was intercepted telling the U.S. Ambassador in Kiev “f__k the European Union.”

Nuland was a key fixture in the Bush-Cheney neo-con regime with its policy of permanent war and permanent regime change. As a career foreign service officer, she was assigned to the Office of Vice President Dick Cheney, as his Principal Deputy Foreign Policy Advisor at the start of the Bush-Cheney administration. In 2005, Bush named her U.S. Ambassador to NATO—coinciding with the unleashing of the first “Orange Revolution” in Ukraine.

Nuland’s husband, Robert Kagan, is another leading neo-conservative, having co-founded the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) and the American Committee for Peace in Chechnya, a Freedom House front that actually promoted the cause of the Chechen rebels against the Putin government during the Second Chechen War. Obama has praised Kagan to the sky, and even referenced his recent essay in his 2012 State of the Union Address.

Nuland, LaRouche emphasized, is a point of vulnerability for Obama, who is already hated by an overwhelming majority of Americans, who increasingly demand his impeachment. “If Nuland is taken out of her position as liaison, the war danger is reduced. We can prevent world war through Nuland’s ouster. She has no right to provoke Russia as she is doing.”

Victoria Nuland and Robert Kagan: Obama’s Favorite Neo-Cons Scheme for War on Russia

President Barack Obama has inherited his neo-conservative foreign and national security policy from the very same people who were instrumental in the Bush-Cheney era policy of permanent war and regime change. That continuity is most clearly expressed in the husband-wife duo of Victoria Nuland and Robert Kagan.

Nuland has been the face of President Obama’s war-mongering against Russia. She infamously boasted in December 2013 that, since the end of the Cold War, the United States has spent $5 billion toward anti-Russian regime-change in Ukraine. Months later, she was caught on an unsecured phone line with U.S. Ambassador in Kiev Jeffrey Pyatt, hand-picking the post-Yanukovych regime centered on “our man Yats,” during a conversation in which she was heard saying that the Europeans can “f__k off.”

As Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Nuland has been shuttling back and forth to Kiev and other European capital fomenting the anti-Russia policies that now leave the world on the brink of general war.

This past October, Nuland was back in Kiev just prior to the Ukraine parliamentary elections. From Kiev she traveled to Berlin, where she delivered a blood-curdling speech at the Aspen Institute’s Berlin 40th anniversary conference, attacking Russia and Putin, and effectively equating Putin’s actions in Crimea and eastern Ukraine with the Islamic State’s butchery in Mosul, and with the spread of Ebola in Africa. She insisted “there must be no sanctions relief until all foreign forces and equipment have left Ukraine, until Ukrainian sovereignty over its international border has been restored, and until all of the hostages have been released.” She went on, “Even as we work on securing Ukraine and its democratic and European choice, we have to work together, the U.S. and Germany, across the trans-Atlantic community to secure our NATO space and to make sure that every NATO ally knows that our Article 5 guarantee means what it says and that we will defend every inch of our space…. NATO also craves the strongest possible Germany, leading our frontline reassurance mission with soldiers, with planes, with ships on the front eastern lines.”

In late November, Nuland was back in Kiev, joining with Vice President Joe Biden to pressure Ukraine’s President Poroshenko to rapidly form a right-wing coalition government. She arrived in Kiev from Latvia, where she delivered yet another provocative threat to Russia, grabbing headlines with her declaration that American soldiers were prepared to “give our lives for the security of these countries…. No one has the right to shoot at territory of NATO.” She assailed Putin for allegedly violating the Minsk accords, and warned “Russia must make a choice.”

Although she is a career foreign service officer, Nuland was a fixture in the Bush-Cheney neo-conservative inner circle. Following the 2001 elections, she was transferred to the Office of the Vice President, where she served as his Principal Deputy Foreign Policy Advisor. In 2005 she was named Bush’s Ambassador to NATO, a post she held from June 20, 2005 to May 2, 2008. She arrived at Brussels as the original “Orange Revolution” was getting under way in Kiev.

Nuland’s husband Robert Kagan is in competition with her as President Obama’s favorite neo-con. Kagan was not only a co-founder of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC). He was also a founder, in 1999, of the American Committee for Peace in Chechnya, an outfit housed at Freedom House and launched by Zbigniew Brzezinski, Alexander Haig, and Steven Solarz, to cheerlead for the Chechen rebels during the Second Chechen War. When the Russians defeated the British-backed Chechen insurgency, the group changed its name to the American Committee for Peace in the Caucasus, and remained active through 2013, promoting a hatred of Russia that some say contributed to the climate where the FBI and other U.S. agencies ignored the Russian warnings about the Boston Marathon bombers.

In his January 2012 State of the Union Address, Obama made reference to a recent Kagan essay in the New Republic on the “Myth of American Decline.” In interviews with reporters just hours before that address, he spent ten minutes reviewing the article, quoting it line by line, and touting its importance, according to Josh Rogin. Then-National Security Advisor Tom Donilon confirmed to reporters that Obama was deeply impressed by the Kagan essay, and that it was virtually mandatory reading within the Obama national security inner circles.

Russian Media Reports on U.S. Opposition to Cold War Resolution 758

Russia Today and Sputnik News today highlighted U.S. opposition to the House of Representatives’ insane bluff against Russia in their passage yesterday of Resolution 758.

Quoting from former Rep. Ron Paul’s Facebook page, Sputnik News reports that Paul says, “Today the House passed what I consider to be one of the worst pieces of legislation ever … provoking a war with Russia that could result in total destruction.” He says that the resolution is just 16 pages of “war propaganda” that “accuses Russia of an invasion of Ukraine,” without any proof whatsoever.

“As to Russia’s violation of Ukrainian sovereignty, why isn’t it a violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty of the U.S. to participate in the overthrow of that country’s elected government as it did in February?” Paul asked.

RT also published an interview today with Daniel McAdams, head of the Ron Paul Peace Institute and former chief foreign policy aide to Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tx.) when he was in the House. McAdams denounces Rep. Adam Kinzinger’s (R-Ill.) Resolution 758, not only because it is a declaration of Cold War against Russia, but because it dangerously calls for resumption of military action by the Poroshenko government against Donetsk and Lugansk.

The resolution was actually written by “special interests” outside Congress who gave it to Kinzinger because he is being promoted for his loyalty to the special interests, added McAdams, who mocked President Obama as well for accusing Putin of exactly the kinds of things the United States has been doing against Russia for the past year at least.

Another Resolution Against War, Signed by 60 Prominent Germans

Just as the resolution written by Helga Zepp-LaRouche against the war drive and for an alliance with the BRICS is being circulated in Germany by the LaRouche movement, another resolution has been published in the weekly Die Zeit. Under the headline “War in Europe Again? Not in Our Name!” it also warns against the war danger, charges the United States, Europe, and Russia with having lost the commitment to war avoidance, and calls on the government and parliament of Germany to stop being sleepwalkers and to publicly declare that Russia has as much of a right to feel secure as do Germans, Poles, and others in Europe. Russia has been part of Europe since the Congress of Vienna, and every attempt to change that has ended with a bloody nose for those who attempted that—Nazi Germany being the last of these. The endorsement in certain Western circles for NATO membership for Georgia and Ukraine, the statement says, has justifiably raised fears in Russia.

The resolution is signed by 60 prominent figures in politics, science, and culture, including former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder; former German President Roman Herzog; former Chancellery Minister Horst Teltshik; former Undersecretary of State of the Defense Ministry Walther Stützle; present Chairman of the Committee on Eastern European Economic Relations (Ost-Ausschuss) Eckhard Cordes; as well as leading dissidents among the media such as Gabriele Krone-Schmalz and former chairwoman of the Evangelical Churches association Margot Kässmann.

Stoltenberg, Tusk Discuss Closer NATO-EU Relationship Aimed At Russia

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and Donald Tusk, the new president of the European Council, met for the first time on Dec. 3 in their current capacities to discuss Russia’s continued destabilization of Ukraine and their impact on Euro-Atlantic stability, according to the NATO release on the meeting. “Russia has violated fundamental principles. That borders cannot be changed by force. Disputes should be settled by talks, not by tanks,” Stoltenberg said. “And the era of spheres of influence is over. Those principles are the basis of the peaceful Europe we have built for two decades—together with Russia.”

The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that many of the historical obstacles that stood between closer NATO-EU cooperation seem to be falling away, now that new leadership has taken over both organizations, though the Greek-Turkish dispute over Cyprus still stands in the way of integration on security matters. “Over Ukraine, Moscow has depicted the EU as a threat to its interests in a manner it once reserved for NATO. For Moscow, ‘the EU used to be the good cop and NATO the bad cop,’ one senior European diplomat told the Journal. ‘Now, we’re both bad cops.'”

In Ukraine, meanwhile, President Petro Poroshenko announced yesterday that a cease-fire in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions will begin on Dec. 9 with a plan to begin removing heavy artillery from the line of contact between the two sides on Dec. 10. The Kiev regime’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said today that preparations are under way for a new round of talks by the Minsk Contact Group. “We are working on its organization, but we cannot give an exact date,” he said, but the talks are expected next week.

However, there might be reason to suspect the intentions of the regime. Alexander Zakharchenko, the leader of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, told ITAR-TASS that the D.P.R. has been involved in permanent consultations with Kiev, but that these consultations are counter-productive because some Ukrainian troops (likely referring to the anti-Russian militias that are often under the control and pay of oligarchs) are not subordinated to Kiev, making the talks ineffective. “They should take one consolidated decision, which will allow us to talk with one group of persons and not to speak different languages with different people,” he said. “As soon as they take this [consolidated] decision, normal talks can be held,” Zakharchenko said.
