Tibet Riots Reflect British Drive For New Eurasian War
March 14 (EIRNS)The current crisis around the Tibet upheaval is to be seen in the context of the drive for a great Eurasian war as a British imperial plot, designed to engage all of Europe west of the Belarus border, in a British-controlled empire. The Bloomberg option in the United States and the EU Treaty are part of the same geopolitical scheme.
"The Lisbon Treaty would mean a general outbreak of warfare throughout Eurasia," commented Lyndon LaRouche on March 16. "And we must understand that the British game in Tibet currently is simply a reflection of that. We know, for example, that the former U.S. Vice President, Al Gore, is very close to the British Monarchy, and he is also a friend of the Dalai Lama." Their plan is to break up China, Russia and India in particular, but fortunately, for the moment, no sane forces in Asia are supporting this venture.
India, as well as Nepal, which borders Chinas Tibet region, barred several hundred Tibetan exiles from marching to Tibet to protest against Beijing hosting the Olympic games. It seems that the riots that broke out in Lhasa shortly thereafter are not being encouraged by other Asian countries. The British hand in the planned march to Tibet is represented by the Transnational Radical Party, an operation run by old British agent Marco Pannella, a rabid malthusian.
At the end of last year, on Dec. 27-28, Pannella and his buddy Matteo Mecacci flew to Dharamsala, in India, where the exiled "Tibet government" resides, and met with the Dalai Lama. Pannella presented him the Radical Party plan for anti-Chinese initiatives in 2008, which he called a World Satyagraha (Mahatma Gandhi's word for non-violent march), to coincide with the Olympic Games, where Tibet was one of the three possible fronts. The Dalai Lama, who held Pannella's hand during the whole meeting, stressed the need for a worldwide mobilization on democracy, ecology, and freedom focused on China. The Radical Party group also met the heads of both the government and the parliament in exile.
Then, on March 10, on the 49th anniversary of the anti-Chinese revolt in Tibet, a six months' march started from Dharamsala to the India-Tibet border, led by a Radical Party delegation headed by Mecacci. At the same time, Pannella was starting a 'thirst-strike' in Rome. A few days after the Indian police blocked the march, riots broke out in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet.
Marco Pannella, the mastermind of the Satyagraha, is pushing for a plan called "soft landing," which calls for reducing the world population in half over the next two to three generations. His endorsement for that plan, in Italian, can be read at www.rientrodolce.org.
Protest demonstrations in Lhasa broke out on the 49th anniversary of the collapse of the Khampa revolt on March 10, 1959, which resulted in the flight of the Dalai Lama to India from Tibet. But, the major objective of the protests, is to draw the attention of international human rights organizations to undermine the upcoming Olympics in Beijing in July. According to an Indian intelligence analyst, the news of the demonstrations in Lhasa was first broken by Radio Free Asia, the CIA-funded radio station, which was established in the 1990s, for use against China, North Korea, and Myanmar. Radio Free Asia, which provided psywar support to the monks and students of Myanmar, during their agitation against the military junta last year, is now providing similar psywar support to the Tibetans.
In India, the response to this campaign has taken the form of an announced march by a group of about 100 Tibetans from Dharamsala, the headquarters of the Dalai Lama, to Tibet. The government of India has done well to ban this march, but despite this, the Tibetans are likely to create difficulties during the passage of the Olympic flame through Delhi on April 17.
Pakistani Extremists Continue Their Rampage
March 12 (EIRNS)Yesterday, the same day that Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf announced convening of the National Assembly on March 17 to establish a new democratically elected government, two massive suicide bombs exploded in Lahore, Pakistan's second-largest city. It is not clear, as of now, how many people have been killed, but already, 31 have been reported dead, and another 175 injured.
The stronger bomb went off at the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), which mainly deals with immigration and human smuggling, but the building also housed the offices of a special U.S.-trained unit created to counter terrorism, security officials said. The bomb at the FIA killed at least 13 agents, reports indicate. A second bomb went off in the residential neighborhood of Model Town, about 10 km from the site of the first blast, almost simultaneously killing two children and another person, besides the two suicide bombers, said a city administrator. The second bomb went off quite close to where PPP leader Asif Ali Zardari's home in Lahore. It was also pointed out that the Special Intelligence Unit (SIU), a section of Pakistani military intelligence, has an office close to where the second bomb went off.
"I have never seen such a deadly suicide attack," Federal Investigation Agency chief Tariq Pervaz told reporters outside the badly damaged eight-story headquarters in the heart of the city.
British Ops, Economic Crisis Destabilize Malaysia
March 9 (EIRNS)Barison Nasional (BN), the government coalition party of Malaysia, was handed a severe setback in national elections yesterday, dropping from 90% of the seats in the parliament to less than two-thirdsthe percentage needed to make changes in the Constitution on its own. Five of the twelve states, were won by the opposition, including the Islamist party PAS, the Chinese Party DAP, and the Keadilan party formed by Anwar Ibrahim, after he was dumped by former Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamad in 1998.
The race was heavily shaped by racial tension, stirred up by the British and their prime asset, Anwar, whose best friends in the West are Paul Wolfowitz and Al Gore. However, the reason such racial divisiveness was effective was that the government of Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi has been unable to defend the nation against the hyperinflation in fuel and food prices sweeping across the globe, which has enraged the population.
Mahathir, who took global leadership against the IMF and the hedge funds in the 1997-98 crisis, by imposing currency controls against global speculators, was brutal in his condemnation of Badawi for failing to protect the nation. "My view is that he has destroyed UMNO (the majority party in the ruling coalition), destroyed the BN (the ruling coalition), and he is responsible for this election result," said Mahathir, and called for Badawi's resignation. "I'm sorry," he concluded, "but I apparently made the wrong choice," by choosing Badawi as his successor when he retired in 2003.
The racial tension was provoked by British assets on both sides. Badawi is known to be highly influenced by his son-in-law, Khairy Jamaluddin, a Cambridge University-trained asset of British financial circles. Khairy famously appealed to race in his leadership of the UMNO Youth, where he raised a keris dagger in railing against the Chinese minority. This, in turn, provided Ibrahim, who was once proud of his role as representative of the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood in Malaysia, to act like a defender of the minority races by accusing the government of "brandishing the keris towards minority groups."
The Indian and Chinese parties which were part of the BN coalition lost badly, including their leaders, who lost their own races.
The last time the UMNO fell short of a two-thirds majority in the Parliament was in 1969, an event that precipitated serious race riots and many deaths.
