Lozansky Is Right, a U.S.-Russia Summit Is Urgent

April 9, 2018 (EIRNS)—Warning that "judging from the current overheated rhetoric in Washington, World War III is fast approaching,” Edward Lozansky, President of the American University in Moscow and a founding member of the Science and Engineering Committee for a Secure World which aimed to support President Reagan’s SDI program, published a call in today’s Washington Times for a Trump-Putin summit to be held as soon as possible.

April 9, 2018 (EIRNS)—Warning that "judging from the current overheated rhetoric in Washington, World War III is fast approaching,” Edward Lozansky, President of the American University in Moscow and a founding member of the Science and Engineering Committee for a Secure World which aimed to support President Reagan’s SDI program, published a call in today’s Washington Times for a Trump-Putin summit to be held as soon as possible.

The talk of an imminent U.S. retribution strike on Syria

"pushes us directly over the red line declared by the Russian General Staff last month, when they threatened to shoot down any plane or ship launching such an attack and thereby endangering their servicemen on the ground there,”

Lozansky reminds.

He situates the crisis over Syria within the broader reality of the "full-scale economic, diplomatic, informational, and ideological war with Moscow” created by the advocates of a unipolar world to which Russia

"is not ready to submit.... In an atmosphere of such unprecedented level of hatred even the little spark could ignite an uncontrollable fire....

"[W]hat we need now is a well-prepared Trump-Putin summit to find a way out of this mega-crisis and make a mutually beneficial deal to avoid the looming catastrophe,”

Lozansky wrote. Since "Trump’s enemies are doing everything possible to prevent or disrupt any summit,” Lozansky proposes that the summit be held, rather than in Washington, in "[n]eutral Vienna, where the young Premier Sebastian Kurz keeps showing his independence from the big boys,” in order to ensure a positive outcome.

He advises Trump that if "Congress with its miserable 15% approval rating tries to block” a Trump-Putin deal, "Trump should appeal directly to American people. Let them decide whether we will have war or peace.”

Lozansky concluded beautifully by pointing to the joint work of American, Russian, Japanese astronauts on the International Space Station, who "are sending the message for peace and cooperation from space,” contrary to the war-mongers on Earth.
