Global War Danger Still on the Table
Nov. 13, 2013 (EIRNS)Asked during his Nov. 8 webcast about the ongoing discussions about Iran's nuclear program, of the P5+1 in Genevawhich at that time were reported to be headed for a possible interim agreementLyndon LaRouche emphasized that this is a "very complicated" situation:
Subsequently, the Geneva negotiations were sabotaged, ostensibly by the intervention of the French government, which cited the concerns of the Israelis, and which had just conferred with the other major opponent of resolving the nuclear issue with Iran, Saudi Arabia. Yet an agreement was reached by the IAEA with Iran, on some former sticking points on inspections, and a schedule is laid out for future meetings to resolve outstanding problems.
According to U.S. intelligence sources, there is a raging fight behind the scenes in Britain over the fact that Saudi Arabia is moving to obtain its own nuclear weapons from Pakistan, and could secure that nuclear weapons arsenal regardless of Iran's status. The Saudi effort, which was broadcast Nov. 6 on BBC's Newsnight, raises the potential for that nation, a British puppet, to play the role of "breakaway ally," especially since it had recently made a big show of its differences with the United States, ostensibly over the U.S.'s refusal to go ahead with the bombing campaign against Syria.
In response to the Saudi story, Lyndon LaRouche commented that the emphasis should not be on Iran or Saudi Arabia as such, but the fact that, given the extreme instability in the trans-Atlantic world today, any use of thermonuclear weapons will lead to a global thermonuclear war.
