To Avoid War, We Need a New Roosevelt-Type IMF System
Lyndon LaRouche held a closed-door discussion July 19 with 25 Washington-based diplomats representing 20 countries from Eurasia, Africa, and Ibero-America. As per tradition, LaRouche's opening remarks were recorded and transcribed, but the discussion afterwards was off the record.
LaRouche began by noting, "This is not yet August, but as I think back to Augusts in the past, I think of August 1914, August 1939." There exists now a "virtual state of war" between Russia and Great Britain, he said. Citing signs of the onrushing economic crisis, such as the recent collapse of two Bear Stearns hedge funds, and the New York Times report of the cost of a can of soda in Paris ($5.52), LaRouche said, "Under these economic conditions, war becomes likely." Noting particularly Dick Cheney's drive to start a war with Iran, LaRouche said, "It wouldn't be war in the simple sense of World War I and World War II, but something comparable."...

The Anatomy of Russian Capitalism, by Stanislav M. Menshikov
March 23, 2007
—EIR News Service announced the publication of
The Anatomy of Russian Capitalism,
by Professor Stanislav M. Menshikov.

Translated from the Russian by Rachel Douglas, the book is an authoritative study of the Russian economy during the first 15 years after the break-up of the Soviet Union. The Preface, by EIR founder and contributing editor Lyndon LaRouche, titled, "Russia's Next Step," poses the need for U.S. policy-makers to study and grasp the "disease" presented in this book, since it represents "an economic global pandemic which we must all join to defeat."

LaRouche to Diplomats: To Avoid War, We Need a New Roosevelt-Type IMF System
Beware the guns of August!

Citing signs of the onrushing economic crisis, Lyndon LaRouche, addressing a private gathering of diplomats, warned that 'under these economic conditions, war becomes likely,' and that Dick Cheney's drive for war against Iran compounded the possibility of world war. But he emphasized that 'the alternative is also on the table,' which would involve a process of engagement by the United States with Russia, China, and India.

The Guns of August 2007: Cheney's Finger Is Already on the Trigger
Dick Cheney, right after G.W. Bush's return to Washington from the promising Kennebunkport summit with Russian President Putin, convinced Bush to resume a preemptive war policy: that diplomacy wasn't working in the case of Iran.


'Something Is Rotten in the U.K.': Great Britain Escalates Crisis With Russia
Helga Zepp-LaRouche reports that Britain has launched an anti-Russia campaign because under President Putin's leadership, Russia is resisting the idea of an AngloAmerican world empire. The British have gone to the extreme, in an attempt to revive Cold War fears, lying that two Russian long-range bombers had suddenly headed for Great Britain, when they were only on maneuvers that been planned six months ahead of time.

Retort to the New York Times: Music: "Science or Fantasy? '
A seemingly routine book review by the New York Times' Edward Rotstein,' Lyndon LaRouche writes, 'may attract the attention of the witting to a seemingly little matter of actually great importance.' Rotstein reviewed a new book, by Lawrence Kramer, titled Why Classical Music Still Matters. What is it that J.S. Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Ludwig van Beethoven knew, that Rotstein and Kramer do not even suspect? And why is an understanding of the work of astronomer and mathematician Johannes Kepler so crucial to anyone who wants to make fundamental progress in advancing Classical music and culture today— as the LaRouche Youth Movement has found?
