Those who have proposed revising the ABM Treaty are not acting out of rational concern for U.S. security, warns LaRouche. “What we are witnessing ... is not their desire to win a war; theirs is a far more modest goal: merely to start one.” Their intent, says LaRouche, is “to crush those Eurasian and other nations, such as Brazil or Mexico, which might come to resist the imposition of so-called ‘International Monetary Fund (IMF)’ hyperinflationary policies of ‘free trade’ and ‘globalization’ upon them.”
LaRouche writes, “The strategic issue today, is the menace of the kinds of ‘doomsday’ scenarios which the British monarchy and foolish and wicked Vice-President Al Gore’s Wall Street cronies are currently forcing upon the world.... We must not permit the world, ever again, to be locked into a state of relative technological stagnation in which nations are forced to resort to ‘doomsday options.’”
