Trump Victory Offers a Reprieve of War Danger, Not Yet More
The election of Donald Trump and the defeat of Hillary Clinton and by extension of Barack Obama has provided a short reprieve in the drive for World War III against Russia, provided that the current President is prevented from taking some kind of reckless action in his remaining lame duck weeks in office. The fact that the immediate danger of nuclear war is off the table for the time being is important, but it does not address the other grave crises that the world is facing.
The trans-Atlantic financial system is still on the edge of total disintegration, and unless that problem is tackled, the conditions will soon re-emerge for global war. To solve that imminent crisis, the LaRouche Political Action Committee is urging the U.S. Congress to immediately pass the pending legislation in both Houses, to reinstate the original Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, breaking up the too-big-to-fail banks into totally separated commercial and investment banks. This must be the first order of business when Congress returns to Washington on Nov. 14 and 15.
Beyond that urgently required action, other measures must be taken to forge a new kind of relations among the leading nations of the planet. There is a prospect of a rapid restoring of US-Russian relations, an opportunity that was welcomed by leading Russian officials.
In addition, a series of positive accomplishments are needed, that will help secure a global system of peace and stability. China's President Xi Jinping has repeatedly offered collaboration with President Obama towards precisely these ends, but the latter rejected all of them. As both Ambassador Chas Freeman and former CIA Director (and Donald Trump national security adviser) James Woolsey emphasized in statements this week, the United States must correct the tremendous blunder of having refused to participate in the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and the larger Belt and Road initiative.
The world needs to take a series of steps towards a new global cooperative system. While it will not be easy, with the proper guidelines for moving ahead, it can be accomplished. A new fixed exchange rate system, national banks, new clearinghouse institutions to facilitate trade and long-term investment are the major changes that the world so desperately needs at this moment.
The Nov. 8 election results have rolled back the imminent danger of nuclear war, but it would be a grave error to depend on President-elect Donald Trump to take the necessary steps. The outline of a road map has been given by Lyndon LaRouche in the form of his “Four Laws”.
