A Tale of Two Generations  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche writes that since today’s Russia will not surrender to the thermonuclear posturing, Americans should be asking if the Bush Administration, which continues to act as a stooge of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, is setting the world up with a “Cuba Missile Crisis” in reverse. Or if George Soros has become a key player in bringing the world into a thermonuclear showdown in August.

Instead, they are spinning fantasies about how they can save their system by manipulating money, by shifting losses to the taxpayer.

In last week’s issue, in the article “Mobilize 25 Million Tons of Food Aid for Africa Now!” Table 1 (p. 30) left out the units in the heading for the third column: It should say thousands of tons. In Figure 1 (p. 29), the 2008 food deficit in 28 African nations is actually 5-54% of need.
