LaRouche on N.Y. Bankers' Drive
To Topple Fujimori
The following press release was issued by EIR on
Lyndon LaRouche, the renowned U.S. economist and former
Democratic Presidential pre-candidate, stated today that Wall Street and allied
financial circles were behind the massive pressure and ultimata directed toward
toppling the Peruvian government of Alberto Fujimori. This foreign pressure led,
over the weekend, to Fujimori's public announcement that he would call general
elections in that country, and would not himself be a candidate for the
"The New York rentier financial crowd, and their operators in
the U.S. State Department, are engaging in a repulsive abuse of power against
Peru," LaRouche said. "But only the uninformed, or outright idiots, believe the
U.S. will be a superpower for long. Their entire financial house of cards could
collapse any week.
"The simple fact of the matter, is that the U.S. financial
bubble is being bailed out, principally by Europe and Japan, to the tune of over
$3 trillion per year--that is, $7 billion or more is flowing into Wall Street
every day. Moreover, the rate of increase of this flow is itself increasing.
This has led to a hyperinflationary process, which no amount of hysterical lying
by the media and others can conceal.
"Hysterical desperation has seized the Anglo-Ameri-can
financial oligarchy, and in a hopeless effort to bail out their bankrupt system
they are looting every corner of the world. They are sucking every last drop of
blood from every nation they can, picking over the corpses to loot everything,
and destroying everything and everyone who gets in their way--as President
Fujimori did, as most recently demonstrated in his speech before the Brasilia
summit of South American Presidents," LaRouche noted.
In that speech to the Aug. 31-Sept. 1 summit, President
Fujimori called for the formation of the United States of South America, and
argued that, with such unity, the peoples of the region could achieve the
"I will kill them all!"
to which they have a right, and which today's globalization
denies them. Fujimori also underscored the illegitimacy of the foreign debt of
the nations of South America, noting that the debt had been paid various times
over, and yet it still keeps growing.
LaRouche emphasized that the Anglo-American oligarchy is not
reacting to Peru, as such. "This is a global reaction to their own crisis. They
are in a `shoot-to-kill' mode, on all fronts, from London to Melbourne to South
"This New York rentier crew is also key to the world oil
crisis, which is the result of spot market speculation, principally by the four
New York-based oil multis and their financial associates. These guys run the
spot market, and they are using it as an essential part of their looting
operation to inflate the bankrupt dollar bubble. The oil spot market has become
a major source of additional revenue to keep the New York bubble growing--and
hyperinflation is the consequence.
"The oil crisis has become the spearpoint of the demise of
the global financial system," LaRouche emphasized.
