LPAC – The assessment of a very senior European military security source is that NATO and the U.S. are already on a countdown to a global showdown with Russia.
”The American people want no part of a conflict with Russia, just as they wanted no part in a war against Syria last summer (…) The American tax-payers don’t want it and our government thinks they can get away with it.” – emphasis added
Russian Navy in Arctic Exercises; Strategic Implications Discussed in Russia
September 22, 2012
LaRouchePAC – A not widely publicized deployment of vessels from the Russian Navy jumped into the news yesterday when a helicopter based on the nuclear-powered cruiser Pyotr Veliky, the flagship of the Northern Fleet, was totall(y destroyed) in a hard landing. Part of what made the accident news was where it happened: in the Kara Sea along Russia’s Arctic Coast, near Kotelny Island in the Novosibirsk Archipelago (potentially the future home of the domed science city of Umka, according to that project’s designers). The incident has touched off intense public discussion in the Russian media, during which one retired military officer drew out the world-war implications of U.S. ship-based anti-missile deployments to Russia’s north.
The problem is that government finances war by borrowing and printing money, rather than presenting a bill directly in the form of higher taxes. – Ron Paul
“Central banks, established by the world’s governments, allow those governments to spend more than they receive in taxes.”
“They allow governments, via inflation, to finance their operations far more cheaply and surreptitiously than they otherwise could. As an enabler of inflation, the Fed is ipso facto an enabler of war.“
“Creating money out of thin air … is preferable for governments, since the process by which the political class siphons resources from society via inflation is far less direct and obvious than in the cases of taxation and borrowing.”
“What we need today is the separation of money and state.” – Llew Rockwell (emphasis added)
Retired Diplomats and Military Officers Warn That Iran Strike Could Lead To Wider War
LaRouchePAC – A very institutional grouping of 35 former U.S. military, diplomatic, and intelligence officials warned Thursday that U.S. military strikes on Iran could set back Iran’s nuclear program by about four years, but that the Iranians probably would manage to retaliate, directly and through surrogates, in ways that risked igniting all-out war in the Middle East.
The report, issued by the “Iran Project,” was presented yesterday by a panel discussion at the Wilson Center Continue reading

“Stumbling Towards Nuclear War?” Paul Craig Roberts Issues an Alarm
August 19, 2012
Former Nixon Administration Treasury official Paul Craig Roberts, who has excoriated the Bush and Obama presidencies for their illegal wars and pointed to the need for Glass-Steagall, took up the danger of the U.S. push toward thermonuclear war in a column for counterpunch.com published Aug. 17. “Is Washington Deaf as Well as Criminal?”, he asks, in his column entitled “Stumbling Towards Nuclear War?”
After attacking Netanyahu’s “lust” for war, Roberts accuses “American neoconservatives” of being just as “crazed.” He writes: “They believe in nuclear war and are itching to nuke some Muslim country and then get on to nuking Russia and China. It is amazing that no more than two or three dozen people have the fate of the entire world in their hands.”
“We are on a fast track to war against Syria. It is time to put on the brakes.”
Dr Ron Paul, US Presidential Candidate
“A key plank of the Blair Doctrine for today is that NATO must be able to go to war without consulting national legislatures, because there is “no time” to get their permission.”
“Aligned with the Putin Doctrine are Russia, China, and India, now joined by Pakistan, which comprise between them the majority of humanity, on behalf of the nation-state and sovereignty.”
“From the mid-17th century more than 9 billion Troy ounces or 290 thousand metric tons of silver was absorbed by China from European countries in exchange for Chinese goods. The British introduced opium along with tobacco as an export item to China in order to reduce their trade deficit. Under the disguise of free trade, the British, the Spanish and the French with the tacit approval of the Americans continued sending their contraband to China …”
“China was forced to pay silver for her addiction to opium smoking that was artificially induced by the pusher: the British.”
“The present trade dispute between the U.S. and China is reminiscent of the background to the two Opium Wars. Once more, the issue is the humiliation and plunder of China as a “thank you” for China’s favor of having provided consumer goods for which the West was unable to pay in terms of Western goods suitable for Chinese consumption. The only difference is the absence of opium in the dispute.
Oops, I take it back. The role of opium in the current dispute is played by paper. Paper dollars, to be precise.”

Media Lies and the Onset of War corbettreport
“As the US and Iranian governments escalate tensions in the already volatile Straits of Hormuz, and China and Russia begin openly questioning Washington’s interference in their internal politics, the world remains on a knife-edge of military tension. Far from being a dispassionate observer of these developments, however, the media has in fact been central to increasing those tensions and preparing the public to expect a military confrontation.

Chossudovsky: The Dangers of Nuclear War and Threats Against Iran GlobalResearchTV
LAROUCHEPAC- In view of the danger of a military strike against Iran and Syria, Helga Zepp-LaRouche, chairwoman of the Civil Rights Solidarity Movement (BüSo) and of the German Schiller Institute, has issued the following call to all governments, that they publicly declare that their country will not, under any circumstances, take part in a war against Syria or Iran. And the dynamic underlying this war danger must also be eliminated, namely, the collapse of the financial system.
