‘The Brutish Israelites,’ again: Starr and the Armageddon freaks

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche situates the apparently odd assortment of right-wing Israeli and “Christian” fundamentalists who aim to fulfill what they claim is the Biblical end-times prophecy, in league with Afghanistan’s Taliban, no less—all under a British umbrella. Their insanity may be nuclear in form. But, first, they must rid the world of the United States Presidency.

Only a strong U.S. President can stop Netanyahu’s nuclear war madness

by Dean Andromidas

One year ago, the journal Israel and Palestine wrote that Benjamin Netanyahu was preparing a war by no later than autumn 1998.

How France’s greatest military hero became a Prussian lieutenant-general  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. examines the case of Lazare Carnot, France’s “Author of Victory,” who had to flee his country and join his fellow world-citizens in Magdeburg. LaRouche explains:

“This is a time of crisis in which to re-examine the historic and present relations between the office of President of the U.S.A. and other nations of the world generally. The issues addressed in the following pages go to the core of the historical basis on which to situate the role which the world requires of U.S. President Clinton now, as a leading world figure. The author’s references to himself, to the role of the United States, and to the exceptional place which the U.S.A. occupies in the history of modern nations, are colored to the purpose of putting the emphasis on the most urgent among the immediate, practical, strategic implications of topics presented in this report: the key role which the United States must now play, for the cause of civilization as a whole.”


Save Japan! Not Banks!  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Japan’s best pro-growth policy, writes Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr., “sometimes described as Japan’s vital interest in a ‘knowledge-intensive export’ orientation,” was destroyed in favor of suicidal derivatives speculation.
