It Was No Conspiracy!
MacArthur & Eisenhower
by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

September 13, 2010—Today, I am among the mere handful of those few still living veterans of a certain past military service, who were part of what some people today would call, mistakenly, ``a conspiracy.'' Today, we few represent that handful of those veterans who, today, had lived through that awful morning when the news had come, that our greatly beloved President Franklin Delano Roosevelt had died. Ours is simply the patriotism of those, among us at that time, who had reacted with a certain, special devotion to that sense of patriotic mission to which we had been called during what was, still then, the ongoing great, long war.

That was, at first, no more than the silent oath to which I committed myself when the news of President Roosevelt's death reached the few of us who would be gathered that evening in a military encampment at Kanchrapara in Bengal, India. When we met quietly in the dusk of that evening, there, I replied to that group of fellow-soldiers who came to me to ask their question. My words from that past are carved in memory still today: ``We have been led, until now, by a great President, who has now died. The new President is a little man, and, I am afraid for our country, now.'' One remembers things like that....

The Anatomy of Russian Capitalism, by Stanislav M. Menshikov
March 23, 2007
—EIR News Service announced the publication of
The Anatomy of Russian Capitalism,
by Professor Stanislav M. Menshikov.

Translated from the Russian by Rachel Douglas, the book is an authoritative study of the Russian economy during the first 15 years after the break-up of the Soviet Union. The Preface, by EIR founder and contributing editor Lyndon LaRouche, titled, "Russia's Next Step," poses the need for U.S. policy-makers to study and grasp the "disease" presented in this book, since it represents "an economic global pandemic which we must all join to defeat."

  • It Was No Conspiracy!
    MacArthur & Eisenhower
    by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

    The strategic post-war alliance of certain high-ranking veteran officers of World War II, such as Generals Eisenhower, MacArthur, and the OSS's Donovan, was not a conspiracy, but rather, a shared devotion to a special patriotic mission. They were determined to continue President Franklin Roosevelt's antiimperial policy against the British Empire, notably, as it was personified by the perfidious Mr. Churchill.
  • Eisenhower's Fight Against the British Empire's 'Cold War'
    President-elect Eisenhower and General MacArthur joined forces in late-1952, to find a 'new approach' to resolving the Korean War, so as to outflank British machinations aimed at expanding that war, or using it to create a 'Cold War' between the U.S. and its former ally, the Russians. Their collaboration made Churchill apoplectic.

  • Despite Primary Outcome:
    Rachel Brown To Escalate Fight for Glass-Steagall

    The statistical results of the vote in Massachusetts 4th C.D. Democratic Primary, as with all statistics, belie the deeper truth: Rachel Brown's campaign landed a powerful blow against the Bailout King, Barney Frank, and his banker backers in the Boston Vault. And the fight for Glass-Steagall continues.
