The United States Is Losing the Iraq War  

by Muriel Mirak-Weissbach

The shooting down of an American CH-47 helicopter in Fallujah on Nov. 2 continued the steady escalation and coordination of guerrilla military operations by the Iraqi resistance. “The Iraqi military is in the process, now, of winning the war,” said Lyndon LaRouche. “This is not a mismanagement problem: The United States is losing the war! And, it’s losing that war in the same degree that it lost the war in Indo-China.”

Lessons To Be Learned: Iraqi Resistance to British Occupation 80 Years Ago  

by Hussein Askary

Because of the foolish policy of Dick Cheney and his neo-conservative cronies, the situation in Iraq is moving rapidly toward an explosion. This most likely will recapitulate the 1920 Iraqi revolt against the British Empire, in which Sunnis and Shi’ites joined forces for national liberation. That revolt created a political legacy whose memories are still vivid in the minds of at least two living generations of Iraqis. It shaped a true anti-imperialist sense, which none of the British puppets and military dictators who have ruled Iraq since, could erase.


Youth’s Victories Put LaRouche Campaign at a Turning-Point  

“We Interrupt This Probe—for a Landslide,” headlined one of the Philadelphia newspapers on Nov. 5. Attorney General John Ashcroft’s targetting of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party, and his near-successful attempt to knock out Philadelphia’s Mayor John Street with a “corruption investigation,” had been turned—by a sudden mobilization of the LaRouche Youth Movement—into an overwhelming 60-40% re-election for Street; another powerful reason for Ashcroft to resign; and another victory for Presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche’s 2004 campaign strategy.

by Richard Freeman

Russia: At the End of an Oligarchical System?

by Roman Bessonov and Rachel Douglas

The “oligarchs,” that small group of aggressive wheeler-dealers who, as “partners” of Western mega-speculators like Marc Rich and George Soros, exploited every opportunity in the course of free-market and privatization reforms to seize the national wealth of Russia and build their own fortunes, are losing power.
