March 21 Webcast: LaRouche Declares War on the British Empire  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“This is going to be a highly structured presentation,” Lyndon LaRouche told his webcast audience, “because we’re dealing with a breaking point in world history, and it can be a breakdown point or an upturn in the process. This is a deadly moment. We’ve come to a time—you know, lots of people will say, ‘Why don’t you break it down in more simple language, so we can understand it?’ I say, ‘Well, partner, why don’t you just sit there and let other people make the decision, then?’

“Because this requires some technical competence. We’re dealing with a technical question of a present breakdown, and the alternative of a reorganization to survival of the entire world’s—the entire planet’s!—monetary-financial and physical-economic system!... Those who say, it’s too much for them to understand, they want it broken down in simple language, should shut up! And listen: maybe they will learn something.”

Is Southwest Asia Preparing for Obama’s or Netanyahu’s ‘Change’?  

by Hussein Askary

Only a forceful intervention by the United States in Israel can thwart the threats to the peace process. What’s needed is to end the legacy of the British Empire in the region, once and for all. The first signs from Washington are encouraging, but no one should rest on their laurels for the moment, not the least President Obama and the Arab leaders.
