Germany Needs to Stop Hyperventilating on Trump, Opt for the New Alliance

In an article written on Feb. 11 for Neue Solidarität, Helga Zepp-LaRouche goes through the new alliances among the United States, China, Russia, Japan that are being forged, and that could potentially usher in a new era in history. Those alliances became very much apparent in the telephone call between President Trump with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, then in the cordial exchanges between Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping and in the visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to the United States.

The growing cooperation between Russia and China is part of that same strategic picture, as is Japan’s notable rapprochement with Moscow.

In Europe however, Helga Zepp-LaRouche noted with irony, all that “has not yet been noticed by the neocons and neoliberals, or by most of the left-wing and certainly not by the Greens, who are all so busy hyperventilating in various ways against Trump’s victory, that they are numb to the major changes occurring on the political world stage.”

More specifically on Germany, Zepp-LaRouche noted that the PM of Bavaria Horst Seehofer has apparently sensed which way the wind is blowing, and according to media reports, would like to visit Trump and plans another visit to Putin. Chancellor Merkel on the contrary appears to be absorbed in her new role as defender “of the free West”. She just expressed, together with Polish PM Szydlo, her opposition to any easing of the sanctions against Russia. “The support of the Berlin government for the regime in Kiev is a scandal”, Zepp-LaRouche wrote. Unfortunately, the chancellor candidate of the SPD Martin Schulz, who as President of the European Parliament until very recently is THE representative of the EU Establishment, has not shown any inclination to present a real alternative to Merkel in his geopolitical view of Russia and China.

In the upcoming campaign for the Bundestag, Zepp-LaRouche points out, the Büso [Civil Rights Movement Solidarity]

“will make every effort to point to the enormous potential Germany could reap by cooperating with the U.S., Russia, China, Japan and many other countries, above all in the economic development of South-West Asia and Africa. Germany now has the awesome opportunity to devise a foreign policy which is both in the best interests of Germany and in harmony with what Xi Jinping calls the ‘community of common destiny for the future of mankind’. Germany’s inventive spirit, engineering expertise and the productivity of its Mittelstand are exactly what the development of the world requires, and their participation in the projects of the New Silk Road and in international scientific cooperation would massively improve the range of jobs available domestically. That means leaving behind low salaries and unproductive jobs to create highly skilled, productive employment and thereby a high living standard for all.”

Helga Zepp-LaRouche concludes:

“Since hyperventilating involves inhaling too much oxygen and exhaling too much carbon dioxide, all those who blame CO2 emissions for climate change, should calm down, and stop looking at Trump, China and Russia through geopolitical eyeglasses.”
