The following statement was released by the Schiller Institute internationally for immediate mass circulation on September 25.NATO Escalates for World War; Military and Foreign Affairs Experts Release Proposal:‘Ending the War with a Negotiated Peace’All reports indicate that President Biden intends to send U.S. Army Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS) long-range missiles to Ukraine, with Germany then moving in lockstep, sending Taurus long-range cruise missiles to Kiev, capable of hitting 500 km deep into Russian territory.

Sept. 27, 2023 (EIRNS)—Russia is being left with fewer and fewer options for avoiding direct conflict with NATO. “It appears that Russia is increasingly left with no choice but to engage in direct conflict with NATO on the ground,” Dmitry Medvedev, former Russian President and current Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Security Council, warned in a posting on his Telegram channel yesterday, reported TASS. “NATO has evolved into an openly fascist alliance, resembling Hitler’s Axis, albeit on a larger scale. We are prepared, although the outcome may come at a much higher cost to humanity than in 1945….”He cited the following developments to preface his warning:Canadian animals, led by Prime Minister

Sept. 23, 2023 (EIRNS)—From the outset of his address to the UN General Assembly today, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov identified the underlying cause of conflict in the world, as being the Western powers’ desperation to stop the unstoppable: the nations of the world joining together in new ways—through the BRICS, the SCO, the African Union, ASEAN, CELAC, etc.—so as to develop in freedom. He was equally blunt about the supreme danger: The West not only seeks global NATO domination, but also has revived plans for nuclear war against the Russian Federation.An official translation of his speech is not yet available, but given its strategic importance, we provide here some key quotes via

Sept. 23, 2023 (EIRNS)—Eckard Cordes, former chief of Daimler, blew the whistle on the insanity of the German government policy in an interview yesterday with the Berliner Zeitung. Germany is giving up its lead and sacrificing a key industry, even though demand for the product remains high. “The car industry is the backbone of the German economy,” says Cordes, pointing to the Germans’ lead: “We have the best know-how in the world when it comes to the internal combustion engine.” However, if there is no longer a market for internal combustion engines in Europe, plus extremely high energy costs, companies will pull out of Germany. German workers and their families will fall by the wayside. Ber
