To Risk Thermonuclear War

"If we don't act now, we're going to find we're in a thermonuclear war; it's going to happen, if we don't act now to get this President out of office....

"Now, if we don't have him out of office, don't worry about anything—you're all going to be dead anyway."

That was the brutal reality presented by leading American economist and statesman Lyndon LaRouche, during an hour-long interview with Internet radio host Alex Jones on Nov. 30. It's the reality that certain leading members of the U.S. military are trying to deal with, by moving to block Barack Obama's express intention to carry out a confrontation with Russia and China, which will lead inexorably into thermonuclear war.

In the interview with Jones, LaRouche stressed that it is British oligarchical policy which is behind the war-provoking posture of the Obama Administration and NATO, and that the only kind of war possible under the current circumstances would be thermonuclear.

One can also point to the Dec. 2 posting on the National Interest website by Paul Pillar, a retired CIA official whose last position was National Intelligence Officer for the Near East and South Asia, who ripped into the oft-used Israeli attempt to justify a hit on Iran by comparing that nation to Hitler's Germany. Pillar says that's bunk, but dangerous, because the analogy is being used to drag the U.S. into another war, "with calamitous effects on U.S. interests."
