LaRouche Speaks for America to Turkey’s Leaders  

by Muriel Mirak-Weissbach

Addressing a nation hard-hit by the political ramifications of the Iraq War, Lyndon LaRouche was able, during his June 13-18 visit, to shift the mood in the country from pessimism to hope that U.S.-Turkish relations can be repaired, not through Ankara’s capitulation to imperial dictate, but through a fundamental shift inside the United States, spearheaded by LaRouche’s Presidential campaign. He was the keynote speaker at a conference in Istanbul, co-sponsored by the Cultural Affairs Department of the Istanbul Municipality, on the theme “Eurasia: New Key for Global Development and Peace”; and another, on the same theme, hosted by the Ankara Chamber of Commerce. Among the 700 people attending the two events were government ministers, members of Parliament, intellectuals, professors and students, and the media.

by Jonathan Tennenbaum

“Could the economic development process, now occurring in China and its neighbors in Southeast and Southern Asia—together accounting for over half the world’s population—offset the effects of the profound economic crisis gripping most of the rest of the world? Could Asia’s growth prevent a full-scale ‘Great Depression’ from taking hold of the global economy, and provide a way out for Germany and other export-oriented nations in Europe? Our answer, developed here, is a resounding ‘Yes!’” From a Special Report of EIR Nachrichtenagentur, The Lautenbach Plan and Eurasian Development: Measures To Overcome Mass Unemployment.

by Jeffrey Steinberg

One measure of the impact of the LaRouche campaign exposé of the network of neo-conservatives, Leo Strauss protégés, and fellow travellers of Israel’s Likud party in and around the Bush Administration, is the spate of hysterical media admissions that LaRouche was the source of the “Leo-con” revelations.
