LaRouche on Alex Jones:
We're at the Edge
of Thermonuclear War

Dec. 1, 2011 (EIRNS)—During an hour-long interview with Internet radio host Alex Jones on Nov. 30, American economist and statesman Lyndon LaRouche laid the situation on the line: We're at the edge of thermonuclear war. And the only pathway to avoiding such a war is to remove British puppet Barack Obama from power. LaRouche began thus:

"We're right on the edge of thermonuclear war. As to whether that will happen or not, that's another question. But the likelihood that it could happen is great.

"What's happened is, the U.S. forces in the eastern Mediterranean, and in the Persian Gulf region, especially naval forces in particular, are positioned for launching a thermonuclear war. The name of the game, of course, is what we're going to do to Syria, what we're going to Iran, but if you look at the forces in the area, that makes no sense. Then you look at other aspects of it, and you know that now the Russians are in on the thing, in defending Syria, in particular, against this atrocity, and you realize that we're on the edge of actually going to thermonuclear war.

"What happened was, of course—and I don't know how much, or how well this is known—but our leading general officers, advisors, and so forth, who advise us on our security, have opposed any action by Obama of this type. So therefore, that is in that degree tied up. But, what's hanging out there is, at any moment, a war could start.

"Now, this war will be a war with thermonuclear weapons. That's the fact. The idea that this is only Syria and Iran is nonsense. This thing—what we have positioned in the Gulf area, and in the eastern Mediterranean, is the capability for thermonuclear war, and nothing else. Our allies, including the British, do not have the depth of weapons capability for doing something like this. Only the United States, and only the thermonuclear warfare capability of the United States, could actually conduct such a war. It would be a war against the entirety of Asia, and other places.

"It's now being slowed, but the British are pushing this greatly, and we're on the edge of it."

During the remainder of the discussion LaRouche repeatedly stressed that the indispensable step toward avoiding such a disaster, is to act now to remove Obama from office, by invoking the 25th Amendment, Section 4, and/or impeaching the President.
