Russian President Vladimir Putin is driving ahead this week on the new Syria ceasefire initiative, in its full implications to back down the warmongers. Elements in this process, over the Feb. 22-23 period, are serving to tie down Obama, and his London controllers, with more and more constraints. The geopolitical crowd are finding it harder and harder to pull off their usual, old dirty tricks. This creates a renewed opportunity for us to act to set Obama aside, and truly make a break with the British imperial paradigm causing the devastation in the first place, in the Mideast-North Africa and in Europe. The current circumstances are the perfect conditions for sane forces throughout the United States–and worldwide–to step up and accomplish this.

“There is no option,” Lyndon LaRouche said today, emphasizing the urgency and necessity. “Unless something special is done to throw Obama out of office,” there is no chance for success. It is important, he said, to “break the British hold. that’s the only chance for humanity. Obama’s got to go one way or another. That’s the only way.”

On Feb. 22, the formal agreement for “Terms for a Cessation of Hostilities in Syria” was reached by the co-chairs of ISSG (International Syria Support Group)–Russia and the United States–after a phone call between Putin and Obama, done at the Kremlin’s request. Next, Putin issued a full and official “Special Address”, on the significance of the new agreement, which includes reiteration of principles, and very specific implementation. On the question of compliance, Putin’s address states: “To achieve this goal, we will establish a communication hotline and, if necessary, a working group to exchange relevant information…”

Putin further stressed that conditions must be created, “for launching a long-term political process through a broad inter-Syrian dialogue in Geneva, under the auspices of the UN.”

Then, within 24 hours, Moscow announced more implementation. Major Gen. Igor Konashenkov, spokesman for the Defense Ministry issued a statement today, saying that Russia has prepared the logistics for the hotline between the U.S. and Russia, and submitted them to the U.S. for activation. Secondly, Russia has established a “Coordination Centre for Reconciliation” of warring sides, at the Kheimin airbase, near Latakia, in western Syria. Its functions are to “render the maximum assistance” to everyone who applies for it. Hotlines will be manned, to monitor the truce. The center will assist in humanitarian relief efforts.

In contrast, Obama followed up the phone call and agreement with Putin, with no statement, and only a two paragraph ‘read-out’ posted on the White House news site. The first paragraph merely confirmed the call and agreement; while the second paragraph reported that Obama berated Putin for wrongdoing in Ukraine. British Foreign Minister Philip Hammond followed suit, by ranting that, the new agreement “will only succeed if there is a major change of behaviour by the Syrian regime and its backers. Russia, in particular must honour this agreement by ending its attacks on Syrian civilians….” and so on.

In reality, the Putin Syria peace initiatives constitute a framework for the Silk Road/Marshall Plan proposed by Helga Zepp LaRouche and the international Schiller Institute mobilization, and implied in President Xi’s recent visit to the region. This is the means to end the strife, and restore a future across the entire region.

What’s blocking this, is that Americans are still putting up with Obama in office, and the British imperial occupation. It’s past time to cast it off.
