LaRouche’s Historic Webcast: President Obama’s Options  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

In his Jan. 16 pre-inauguration webcast, Lyndon LaRouche addressed what President Obama must consider as he makes his decisions on the international monetary-financial crisis. LaRouche said that when he forecast, on July 25, 2007, the imminent collapse of the international financial system, he was talking about the $1.4 quadrillion international financial derivatives bubble, which is still growing. Most of these financial claims are going to have to be wiped from the books in a bankruptcy reorganization, shutting down the derivatives market while the physical economy is put under protection, if the nations of the world are to survive. He said that the world banking system, in its present form, can not be saved. But we can save the physical economy, and then develop a credit system, as best understood by Alexander Hamilton. The responsibility of carrying this out for mankind, is what is confronting Obama now.


Lessons of History: London Is Pushing a Hundred Years War  

by Jeffrey Steinberg

There have been 100 years of conflict in Southwest Asia since the advent of the imperial Sykes-Picot treaty. The London-based imperial financial empire is announcing that it intends to keep these conflicts going for another 100 years.

When America Fought the British Empire and Its Treacherous Sykes-Picot Treaty

by Dean Andromidas

The cause of the wars in Southwest Asia is the Anglo-French Sykes-Picot agreement of 1916, not anything internal to the region today. Forces in the United States understood the danger of that imperial system, and particularly, of British manipulations to grab the remnants of the dead Ottoman Empire, at the close of World War I. These patriotic Americans tried to block it—a story hitherto suppressed.

Netanyahu’s Godfather: How British Imperialists Created the Fascist Jabotinsky

by Steven P. Meyer

The armed conflict in Israel today is the continuation of almost a century of British-staged armed conflict between Arab and Jew that dates back to the Nebi Musa riots of 1920, just months after the close of World War I, as the British settled in to occupy Palestine. It was the top British imperial circles who sponsored the fascist Vladimir Ze’ev Jabotinsky, as a means of implementing the strategic goals of the British Empire.

Parvus, Jabotinsky, and London’s Young Turks

How the British/Venetian-spawned Young Turk movement instigated London’s Balkan Wars and the overthrow of the Ottoman Empire—without which, the entire Anglo-French Sykes-Picot colonial scheme would not have been possible.

Failed Bailout Ploy Heading into Desperate New Phase  

by John Hoefle

The bailout process is akin to the actions of a junkie, who knows in the deep recesses of his mind that he must quit, but hasn’t the courage to do so. “One more fix,” he says. We are now at the point where the money junkies are unable to control themselves. It is time to intervene, and put their system through bankruptcy. Before it kills us, as well as them.
