A Pasteurian War Plan To Save Africa from AIDS

by Garance Upham Phau

Ninety years ago, the warriors on disease trained by Louis Pasteur, such as Eugene Jamot, vowed and fought to rid the African continent of sleeping sickness—and won. But today, the genocidal economic policies being applied to Africa are such, that even if a vaccine against the HIV virus were available right now, most people with the virus would die anyway of other diseases such as TB, leprosy, and kala-azar. It is time for us to return to Pasteur’s “total war” approach.


Agriculture Talks Kick Off World Trade Scramble

by Marcia Merry

EIR’s Economics Staff presents a proposal for the major areas of concentration for such a “Third Way” for Poland.

LaRouche: Panama Invasion Is Treason to the United States

by Jeffrey Steinberg

In March 1983, Gorbachov’s predecessor in the Kremlin, Yuri Andropov, offered the U.S. a free hand to conduct wars and invasions in the Western Hemisphere, in exchange for Soviet control of Europe. That doctrine, which violates all U.S. strategic interests, is now the official policy of the U.S.-Soviet global condominium, explains Lyndon LaRouche.
