LYNDON LAROUCHE CONGRATULATES VLADIMIR PUTIN:

Notes 'First Step on Road
to New Pacific-Centered Recovery'

Sept. 25, 2011 (EIRNS)—Noted American economist and political leader Lyndon LaRouche today issued a statement of warm congratulations to Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, upon his nomination for the Presidency of Russia in the 2012 elections. He also congratulated Russian President Dmitri Medvedev, who nominated Putin for President at this week's United Russia party convention, and has announced his candidacy for the Russian Duma, as head of the United Russia slate. LaRouche stated:

"This Putin-Medvedev move is just the kind of strategic surprise the world needs. This assertion of leadership sends a clear message of defiance against the British Empire's divide-and-conquer games, and represents a major step forward toward a new Pacific-centered recovery program for the entire world.

"Over the recent weeks, the Putin-Medvedev leadership has taken new initiatives toward cooperation with China, on precisely the basis of high-technology development, including space and nuclear, that the world needs in order to get out of the current depression. Once the United States, without Obama, joins with this Russian-China alliance, we have the basis for a Great Pacific Alliance, which will be the alternative to war and a New Dark Age.

"We are already seeing whining and screaming from lackeys of the British Empire, about this crucial decision. In fact, they have brought this development on themselves, by wrecking the trans-Atlantic economies through de-industrialization and globalization. People in the West have no right to complain.

"The Putin-Medvedev decision is actually a sign of hope for all mankind. What is required now is for the American population to dump its British-puppet President, and join with Russia and China to form the Great Pacific Alliance that can rescue mankind.

"This alliance is already in the making, as of the Putin-Medvedev announcement yesterday. Now is the time for American patriots to move decisively to dump Obama so we can join it, and take the necessary measures to save every section of the planet from an otherwise-inevitable collapse into the future envisioned by the British financial empire—depopulation and death."
