The Great Leesburg Bust of 2006: Bankers Association Warns of Bust

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“The world is now threatened, during the immediate months ahead, with the most severe breakdown in the global economy since the so-called ‘New Dark Age’ crisis set off by the mid-Fourteenth-Century crash of the ultramontane Venice’s tool, the Lombard banking system.What is rumbling now from under the burgeoning, saturated drain-fields of Loudoun County, Virginia, is a twitch. Week by week, there is, an accelerating rate of a margin of unsold, empty houses, an ironical warning of a great crash of Alan Greenspan-created mortgage-based-securities bubble: a crash about to hit with panic force.”

by Jeffrey Steinberg

And everyone knows that the true architect of the policy is not Rumsfeld, but Dick Cheney.
