Korea and World Peace

Dec. 15, 2002 (EIRNS)—The following statement was issued today by the Presidential pre-candidate Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.'s political committee, LaRouche in 2004.

I am thankful for the U.S. Government's official apology to Spain, over the attempt by some U.S. rogues to involve Spain in an attempted destablization of the ongoing Korea election campaigning. The restoration of rail transport within Korea which will allow us to connect Pusan to western Europe, is an essential part of the effort to rescue the U.S.'s partner Europe from the effects of a currently accelerating general economic collapse around most of the planet. The currently continuing attempts of U.S. official "Chickenhawks," such as Richard Perle and his accomplices, to trigger a war-like crisis in the Korea Penninsula, must be stepped on, hard.

A group of Eurasian nations, including the Strategic Triangle of Russia, China, and India, is emerging as the pivot of an increasing density of far-reaching, long-term economic development projects within Asia. This includes Korea, Japan, and Southeast Asia. The foundation of this ongoing economic strategy includes large-scale infrastructure projects which will serve as a critical margin of long-term stimulants to the entire region. Among the effects will be a long-term growth of large margins of exports of relevant technology from Europe, and similar opportunities for U.S. trans-Pacific trade.

Those benefits depend in significant degree upon strategically crucial cooperation among Japan, Korea, and China. Japan urgently needs the opportunity to return to the industrial- goods export orientation of the period prior to Zbigniew Bzezinski's U.S. wrecking of Japan's oil-for-technology relations with Mexico, for example. Japan's prospect for participation in cooperation among Russia, China, and Korea, is therefore a critical factor in Japan's early future. A revival of the pre-1997 industrial capabilities of Korea, and the development of the rail connection from Pusan to Europe, is therefore a critical frontier of the defense of the U.S. economy itself.

Therefore, any other meddling madmen who are seeking to disrupt the Korea rail connection, or target North Korea for U.S. Chickenhawk's attempts to use it as a nuclear alternative for warfare on Iraq, must be consdered as a threat not only to our friends in Eurasia, but, also a menace to the imperilled economic security of the U.S.A. itself.
