China yesterday signed its first agreement with an international institution, the UN Development Program (UNDP), to cooperate in promoting and implementing the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly. Helen Clark, the Administrator of the UNDP, said: “The Belt and Road Initiative represents a powerful platform for economic growth and regional co-operation, involving more than 4 billion people, many of whom live in developing countries. It can serve as an important catalyst and accelerator for the sustainable development goals.” Clearly, China’s concept of “sustainable development” is winning the day at the UN.
But it has not won the United States, as evidenced yesterday in a raving display of psychosis by President Obama in his UNGA speech. While the audience sat quitely, without applause, Obama ignored the new paradigm that has come into being under China’s direction over the past weeks, and instead claimed that his leadership, and his wars of aggression (described as “protecting the vulnerable”), and his sponsorship of color revolutions (described as defending human rights and democracy, as in Ukraine and the Mideast), had created a world “less violent and more prosperous than ever before.” Twice he attacked Russia, describing it as an imperial power “attempting to recover lost glory through force.” It is surprising that the assembled world leaders did not act to have him removed, either to jail or an insane asylum.
Obama’s Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joe Dunford, meanwhile, has come very close to admitting that the US bombed the Syrian Army intentionally last Saturday – and that they may do it again. “Maybe before we start going on a path of ‘what went wrong,’ let’s do an investigation and actually ensure that something did go wrong,” he told reporters traveling with him. “It may be that … when you do the investigation, the facts would tell you that we would have done what we did again.”
The second attrocity in Syria this week — the destruction of a UN/Red Crescent aid convoy — was immediately blamed on Russia by State Department officials, whose spokesman said the US would “reasses future prospects for cooperation with Russia.” This is the intent of the war party in the White House and the Pentagon — to prevent any US-Russia cooperation.
But the evidence on the aid convoy attack is quite different. The Russian Ministry of Defense declared that there had been no Russian or Syrian air deployments in the area, but that al Nusra had launched an offensive aimed in that direction. In fact, the trucks were destroyed by a fire sparked by artillary shelling, not by bombs, the video of the scene shows.
Will Obama succeed in launching a war with Russia, and by extension with China? It can be stopped. Yesterday, a rally and a press conference by the families of 9/11 victims rallied at the White House to demand Obama not carry out his intention to veto the JASTA bill, which will allow the victims to sue the Saudis for their role in the 9/11 attack on America. And, the Senate leaders confirmed that they have the votes and the will to override Obama’s promised veto.
