Sputnik Interviews Helga Zepp-LaRouche: ‘U.S. Analyst Claims Geopolitics Could Lead to Extinction of Human Race’

Aug. 7, 2015 (EIRNS)—What follows is the text of Sputnik’s article about the Sputnik radio interview with Helga Zepp-LaRouche under the headline above. EIRNS’ transcript of the 7-minute audio interview is in an accompanying slug.

Lyndon LaRouche’s wife Helga Zepp LaRouche spoke to Sputnik about how U.S. atomic bombing in Nagasaki and Hiroshima was completely unnecessary and how the U.S. is preparing for another atomic war against Russia and China right now.

For 70 years, the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the U.S. has been marked by reverence for the many victims who tragically lost their lives during the nuclear attack, but now an influential American international affairs outlet, Foreign Policy, has decided to spin the event, blaming the Soviet Union for what happened.

In his article "Did Hiroshima Save Japan From Soviet Occupation?" Sergey Radchenko makes it seem like the nuclear bombings were a godsend, and that the U.S. humanely intended to save Japan from communism.

Following the publication of the provocative article, Helga Zepp LaRouche, founder of the Schiller Institute Washington, D.C., spoke to Sputnik radio, saying that there is no justification for what the U.S. did in Japan.

"There was absolutely no reason for this bombing as there was already peace negotiation between the emperor and the Vatican at that time. The bombing was done to instigate horror and awe by Truman so that he could continue the era of imperialism,"

LaRouche said.

"There are many people who have been warning that the U.S. and NATO are preparing a new war against Russia and China. There is a very serious escalation of the situation, making the month of August extremely dangerous as history shows most of the wars started in August, and the U.S. military has changed tactic in Syria last week and the U.S. army has gone into recess."

She goes on to say that U.S. is busily preparing itself for war. Signs indicate that another nuclear war is getting closer and this time it will annihilate the entire human race.

In order to prevent that from happening, LaRouche said that the U.S., Russia and China need to sit down and talk. Europe must apply pressure, and say that it will not be a part of such a war.

"The leaders of the U.S., Russia and China must sit together and discuss the new international security architecture. We must overcome geopolitics if we don’t want to extinct ourselves."
