Putin Was Right, He Acted
To Prevent World War III

By acting to defend Russian citizens against a terrorist-type attack by the George Soros and British intelligence-owned government of Georgia, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has delivered a decisive defeat to the British Empire, Lyndon LaRouche declared on Aug. 12. Any capitulation by Russia to the criminal aggression by the Soros puppet government of Mikheil Saakashvili would have been tragic for civilization.

Putin's action was objectively required, LaRouche continued; it was absolutely correct. He and President Medvedev could see that the British Empire, with its U.S. appendages, and its tool George Soros, was heading to consolidate its world empire. The British, and Putin, knew that the only obstacle to their plan at this time is Russia, with its thermonuclear capability. If Russia had submitted to the terms being dictated by the British, we would have been on the road to World War III.

Thus, Putin decided he had to draw the line. He acted decisively, and backed the British and the U.S. down. As a result, the Georgian puppet government has been destroyed, and a message has been delivered to the entire world.

Some British thinkers got that message, LaRouche said, pointing to an article in the London Daily Telegraph of Aug. 12, by diplomatic editor David Blair. Blair wrote that "by seizing the opportunity to pound Georgia with air strikes and military incursions, Vladimir Putin, Russia's Prime Minister, is sending an emphatic message with global consequences. The curtain has fallen on the era when NATO steadily expanded into Eastern Europe and onwards to embrace the former republics of the Soviet Union—and Russia was able to respond with nothing more than bluster.... The balance of power in Europe has fundamentally changed...."

What Russia faced was a Pearl Harbor-like sneak attack by the Soros-backed administration of Georgia, an attack carried out by the tool of the Hitler-like Soros, with the aim of Hitler-like ethnic cleansing, LaRouche said. Putin saw the existential threat to Russia, and where it was leading, and he acted, as FDR did against Pearl Harbor. Putin knew that if he did not, the British Empire—faced with the dissolution of its world financial system—would have pressed on toward world war.

The silly screams from the Bush Administration only testify to the effectiveness of the Putin action, LaRouche said. As for the Presidential candidates, the fact that Barack Obama is a bought-and-paid-for stooge of Soros makes it hopeless that he could come to his senses. In the case of John McCain, LaRouche said that he should stop being silly, and sit down and think, rather than shooting off his mouth.

The Russian action against the Georgian provocation is a crucial turning point, LaRouche concluded. It reverses almost 20 years of history, during which the British Empire, through Soros and other agencies, moved to take advantage of the collapse of the Soviet Union, to consolidate world empire. Through this entire period, the American people—the only other significant point of resistance—tragically capitulated, negotiating their own destruction, refusing to take the threat to their nation, and the world, seriously. How could Americans be so stupid as to tolerate Bush? How could they let Soros choose the Democratic Party Presidential candidate?

The key to victory over the enemy of mankind, the British Empire, is to refuse to compromise on fundamentals, to overturn the rules of the game, LaRouche said. That is the decision which Prime Minister Putin made, for the benefit of all mankind.

Some people in Britain have gotten the message, LaRouche said. Now, it's time the American people did as well. It's time to destroy everything associated with the British Empire, especially its leading agents, the Hitler-like Soros, and Al Gore. Either this is done between now and the November election, or there won't be a United States. By acting as he did, LaRouche concluded, Russian Prime Minister Putin has created the possibility of that turnabout in America. And he has thrown a major obstacle in the way of Britain's drive for World War III.
