On April 9, Lyndon LaRouche warned that there is a British-run coup d’état in process against the Trump Administration, which threatens to escalate the stupid and dangerous April 7 air strike against a Syrian air base into a full-fledged thermonuclear confrontation with Russia and China.
It was British intelligence and input which duped President Trump into attacking Syria, with their lies and false intelligence, LaRouche charged. We have to rally the U.S. to get back on the trajectory that Trump had begun to chart for the country, of cooperation with Russia and China around American System economic policies, including a return to Franklin Roosevelt’s 1933 Glass-Steagall principle.
Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin should immediately hold a summit meeting to address the crisis, LaRouche said, and thereby short-circuit the whole London-run operation. Indeed, top British officials are crowing openly that they managed to achieve the apparent about-face on foreign policy of Donald Trump.
For example, London’s Defense Secretary Michael Fallon published an op-ed in the April 9 Sunday Times of London, bragging that “the British and American governments have been in close contact at all levels before and after the strikes…. U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis called me to share their assessment of the regime’s culpability. Together we reviewed the options they were considering.”
On April 8, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson had also claimed that he was coordinating everything with his American counterpart, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, including Johnson’s theatrical cancellation of his scheduled trip to Moscow.
The same Sunday Times asserted, in another article, that: “Britain and America will this week directly accuse Russia of complicity in war crimes in Syria and demand that Vladimir Putin pull the rug from Bashar al-Assad’s blood-soaked regime.” Fallon, in his op-ed, directly accused Russia of being responsible, by proxy, “for every civilian death last week.”
Tillerson, however, stated in an interview on that same April 9 that he not seen “any hard evidence” connecting the Russians to the planning or execution of the attack.
As of this writing, the battle for the Trump Administration is raging, and the neocons have made some headway.
