LaRouche in Italy Outlines Exit Strategy from War  

by Claudio Celani

Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi’s support for the Anglo-American invasion of Iraq has caused a domestic crisis, in a country whose people overwhelmingly opposed that war. In an April 8-11 visit there, Lyndon LaRouche provided leadership to both opponents and supporters of the government, illustrating the nature of the “chicken-hawk” faction controlling U.S. policy, and indicating how the political class must provide a peace-building policy based on economic development—a role for which Italy is uniquely well situated.

Iraqi People Speak Out for National Sovereignty

by Hussein Askary

Almost all Iraqis feel some sort of relief that Saddam Hussein’s dictatorship has ended. Nonetheless, they strongly oppose the presence of any foreign forces on their soil. Thus any plans to impose U.S.-backed “Cocktail Party” opposition groups to rule the country, will meet stiff resistance from diverse social and religious forces.
