The LaRouche Movement is noted for its prediction of the collapse of the current global “casino” financial and economic system which it controversially asserted to be centered in the City of London. The latest Libor fixing scandal involving Barclays Bank and, based on the statements of Barclays’ deposed chief Bobby Diamond, involving the Bank of England’s complicity in all the illegal manipulations by Barclays and all the other major Western global banks confirms this. The LaRouche Movement is notable also for its for its geopolitical insight, and for decades now it has been warning the World that the Western financial-economic and oligarchic powers need a major war to “fix” its doomed economies.
Six months after Obama’s “pivot” and “rebalancing” of US military forces to the Asia-Pacific, Gabrielle Peut, Aaron Isherwood and Allen Douglas reports in The New Citizen, newspaper of the LaRouche Australia: “Australia is deep into preparations for a British-directed, Obama-led, nuclear world war against Russia and China. Indeed, our nation is a key chess piece in that war. Should such a war unfold, we will be hit by Chinese nuclear weapons, and perhaps by Russian ones as well. This reality was the subject of a secret chapter in Australia’s 2009 Defense White Paper, which envisaged an armed showdown initiated by the USA and Australia against China, beginning with Australian submarines blockading China’s sea lanes, followed by China’s hitting the Pine Gap radar installation… The Australian (newspaper) of June 2 summarized, ‘A secret chapter in the Rudd government’s 2009 Defense White Paper detailed a plan to fight a war with China, in which the navy’s submarines would help blockade its trade routes, and raised the prospect of China firing missiles at targets in Australia in retaliation.’”
There are at least 10 top secret American facilities in Australia, the “Joint Defense Space Research Facility” at Pine Gap outside Alice Springs, NT, is the most important. It was to control and act as a downlink for geosynchronous satellites stationed over the Pacific and Asia. The agencies involved are the CIA, NSA and the NRO.
There were other reasons now for the base which have never been fully revealed. The Pine Gap is situated where it is in proximity to the Pacific and Indian Oceans and Asia, it’s Southern hemispheric window to outer space, it’s position on the earth’s surface in relation to other important areas situated on the planet, its isolation and the fact it is situated in an area of low electromagnetic radiation. Construction of the base was undertaken by American contractors and no Australians were involved. Pine Gap is obviously a radar monitoring station and in the event of a missile exchange, would have to be blinded by adversaries at the onset of a strike.
People must be made aware that “War is a Racket,” as US Gen. Samuel Butler write in his 1935 book of the same name. Prof. Vyacheslav Dashichev writes in “The Impending Dangers of a Global Conflict: How to Prevent World War III; The Lessons of History” who investigated and found seven factors for World War II:
1) The actions of the expanding German empire to obtain regional and then global domination and to gain control of the resources and markets;
2) The expansionist German Reich wanted to achieve military superiority by massive rearmament;
3) The goal of the German Reich was to upset the balance of power in the world arena by defeating small and medium-sized countries;
4) Merging the countries into a coalition;
5) Within the innermost circle of the power elite in an expansionist state a power structure comes into being;
6) The expansionist state seeks to resist the economic and systemic crisis of capitalism. The solution is to go to war;
7) Propaganda is used to systematically implant the notion of an enemy in the minds of the population.
Dashichev sees the same today:
1) The US is clearly an expanding state; 2) … to achieve and maintain world domination … unprecedented American expansion of military force; 3) The US has set … to decisively reset the balance of power worldwide to its advantage; 4) The American policy of dominance has generated strong anti-American sentiments around the world; 5) In the United States a small secret inner circle decides over war and peace.
To it belong some of the richest families; 6) We are now faced with finding a way out of the largest financial, economic and moral crisis since 1929/33; 7) As far as propaganda, psychological control … and the creation of enemy stereotypes … the US power elites have surpassed all previous records.
Dashichev ends: “Historical experience shows that those who sought to dominate Europe and the world always encountered a fiasco. The same fate awaits the initiators and perpetrators who build the American world empire. What is important is to prevent a new world war being unleashed.”
Are we contributing with our rhetoric to the war plans of the Western oligarchs or are we going to be, like the Australian Larouche activists, peace-builders for our children and their children?
