A Reflection on Charles de Gaulle:
`A Europe of the Nations'
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

February 28, 2011—Even among many, so to speak, in ``high places,'' commonplace opinion is often expressed as the presumption that those ideas which control the behavior of even historically prominent figures of our time, were actually ``owned'' by them. History, when properly studied, proffers contrary evidence. It is not existing opinions which shape the destiny of peoples, but the lack of those discoveries of previously unknown universal principles, without which decadence prevails.
Take the case of what was both the famous, and also the infamous in the May 1960, Paris meeting of four heads of government, two being Presidents of their respective republics, Charles de Gaulle and Dwight Eisenhower, the third the Soviet Union's Nikita Khrushchov, and the fourth, witting or not, virtual ``Leporello'' of the occasion, the British Prime Minister, Harold MacMillan.
Technically, all competent historians, and also actually capable leaders of great nations at that time, have understood, that the fact is, that there were actually five key figures involved in shaping the outcome of that meeting, the fifth a prominent figure lurking behind those Paris events, who was acting, off-stage, in the virtually interchangeable role of either John Foster Dulles, or his brother Allen, in the matter of the ``U-2" affair. At that time, both Dulles brothers were already properly infamous in their roles as of the variety of worse than merely typical Wall Street varieties of British-agents-in-fact....

This Week's Cover

  • A Reflection on Charles de Gaulle:
    'A Europe of the Nations'

    Lyndon LaRouche's reflections on the memoirs of the great World War II leader Charles de Gaulle, who, as a creative genius, was capable of changing over the course of his lifetime, to become a world statesman, as well as a patriot of the French nation. The story begins with the infamous Paris meeting of May 1960, among Presidents de Gaulle and Eisenhower, Prime Minister Macmillan, and the British 'Leporello,' Soviet leader Khrushchov. It was Khrushchov's sabotage of that meeting, to the great consternation of the French and American leaders, that set into motion the events that followed. The great tragedy that befell the nations of the trans-Altantic region, included the Cold War, the war in Indochina, and the subsequent destruction of the economies of those nations by British monetarist imperialism.


  • Global Mass Strike Spreads;
    Glass-Steagall Only Solution

    The global mass-strike process, which erupted in North Africa in early January, and brought down the Tunisian and Egyptian governments within weeks, has now surfaced throughout the entire Maghreb-Mideast region, the United States, and Western Europe, specifically Germany. As LaRouche noted on March 2, this process 'is a signal of the countdown for the collapse of the world system, the world monetary-financial system, which is in progress right now.'


  • An Imperial Love Affair:
    Tony and Lizzie and Bandar and Muammar

    From the time took office as Prime Minister, in May 1997, Tony Blair, along with top officials of MI6, Lord Jacob Rothschild, Baroness Liz Symons, and leading members of the British Royal Family, have promoted Muammar Qaddafi, and fostered Libya's growing political and economic ties with Britain, up to the present moment, as the Libyan dictator goes through his final 'Hitler in the bunker' demise. Among the dramatis personnae is a claque of British oligarchs, and their ally, Saudi Prince Bandar; at the center of the action, was the Pan Am 103 bombing, and the dirty deal struck with Qaddafi, to the benefit of Bandar and BAE.
