The Folly of Chronic Wars
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

July 22, 2010—The subject here, is the issue posed by the repeated folly of the U.S.A., and other nations, in being drawn into ``long wars,'' such as the post-President Kennedy ``long war'' in Indo-China, or the folly of the present long war in Afghanistan, the latter being that which I treat as a presently, leading case in this report which I present as bearing on the present quality of mental state of the administration of President Barack Obama.

In the matter of recent U.S.A. Afghanistan war-policy, I have not been an admirer of either General McChrystal's policies in Afghanistan, or of the probably worse case of the past and current policies of General Petraeus. Nonetheless; in everything I see, or hear of the interview with Rolling Stone magazine, McChrystal's conduct was neither unlawful, nor his criticisms unjustified.

However, there is a broader and deeper, leading issue posed by the behavior of the Obama Administration in this and coincident other present matters....

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."


  • The Folly of Chronic Wars
    by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

    The repeated folly of the U.S.A., and other nations, in being drawn into 'long wars,' such as the 'long war' in Indo-China, or the folly of the present long war in Afghanistan, bears directly on the quality of mental state of the Administration of President Barack Obama. The combination of several factors, including General McChrystal's remarks to Rolling Stone, including the news that former President Bill Clinton soars above President Obama in popularity, and including the pressures on President Obama to resort to lying, with evident hysteria, on increasingly crucial matters, especially on diverse leading issues posed by a U.S. economy now plunging into a collapse-phase, have witnessed President Obama as driven into a manifest state of mind which must be compared to a besieged Adolf Hitler's state of mind during Hitler's last days within the Berlin bunker, or the last phase of an 'Emperor Nero' syndrome.


  • Planned Disintegration Hits American Cities
    American cities are going to Hell: With the Wall Street/ London control over U.S. economic policymaking, cities are collapsing, as wave after wave of layoffs hit city agencies, most notably, police and fire departments, at the precise moment when they are needed more than ever, as the economic collapse brings the threat of social disintegration.
