LaRouche Brings `Spark of Optimism' To Italian Parliamentarians in Rome

Lyndon LaRouche addressed a conference in Rome Feb. 13, on the upcoming tasks of the new U.S. Congress. The Press meeting, which took place in the Cenacolo Hall of the Chamber of Deputies in Rome, was organized by the Rifondazione Comunista group of the Parliament, and attended by Mario Lettieri, Undersecretary to the Economics Ministry in the government of Premier Romano Prodi.

While the resolution's opponents made a big deal out of the fact that it was "non-binding," the reality is that the vote puts the President on notice that he does not have support for his escalation, and that more actions will certainly follow.

Putin Delivers Reality Shock at Munich Conference
President Putin's speech was not an attack on the United States at all— indeed, it began by invoking the policies of President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
