Addressing the War Danger More Urgent Than Ever

The moment of opportunity opened by the end of the war in Afghanistan, for multilateral cooperation for economic development, could close very quickly.  A False Flag event, occurring in the midst of almost daily military encounters by U.S.-NATO forces with Russian and Chinese military forces, could lead to a devastating war, either by miscalculation, or intent!  Dialogue is essential, as Gen. John Hyten, Vice-Chair of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, expressed in a speech two days ago.
We also present a preliminary report on the smashing defeat of the California Recall.  Lyndon LaRouche famously warned, in 2003, that Recall is dangerous, as it is designed to manipulate momentary emotions, to undermine the American Presidential System, and replace it with a parliamentary system.

BEWARE FALSE FLAGS: How the Coming Financial Crisis Is Driving the Danger of War, As Before 9/11

It is still unknown whether the withdrawal of U.S./NATO forces from Afghanistan is the end of the era of endless wars, or a move to a new phase of geopolitical confrontations, directly challenging Russia and China.  The push for continued war comes from the onrushing financial collapse, for the same reason that the wars were launched following the 9/11 attack: wars are used, by the globalist financial and corporate cartels who fund the war hawks, to justify the imposition of emergency measures, including austerity economic policies and the surveillance state.  That is why it is necessary that LaRouche's economic policies, for collaborative mutual economic benefit, represent the only real alternative to chaos.

Who Benefited from 9/11?

The first 9/11 documents declassified as a result of President Biden's order show active involvement of Saudi officials in the events of 9/11.  What must be answered now is 1.) Who in the U.S. government covered up the Saudi role for 20 years?; and 2.) Who benefited from the coverup?  The place to begin to answer these questions is with Lyndon LaRouche's forecast on January 3, 2001, in which he warned that a "Reichstag Fire" event would be used by the Bush administration to impose emergency crisis management policies.

Friday Questions: Once Again, Tony Blair Exposes Himself As a War Criminal!

On the eve of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, which led to the "forever wars" which he still supports, Blair reiterated all the talking points used by the Shadow Government to justify geopolitical provocations, huge military budgets, and imposing the Surveillance State.  We take up the question of whether 9/11 was an "inside job"; will Biden's declassification order relating to documents on the Saudi role make a difference; and what is the significance of changes in financial regulatory policies introduced by the Chinese government?
For a full, in-depth analysis of 9/11 and its destructive aftermath, and how to change the direction from geopolitics to peaceful cooperation, be sure to register for the online conference of the Schiller Institute on Saturday, September 11, beginning at 2 PM EDT.

Update on Afghanistan, From Outside the Western Media Bubble

While some irresponsible idiots, such as Sen. Lindsey Graham, are calling for the U.S. to send troops back to Afghanistan, there are developments underway that are kept out of the western media.  What, for example, are the Chinese and Afghanistan's neighbors saying and doing?  China has a vested interest in seeing that Afghanistan does not become a safe haven for terrorists, nor drug traffickers.  China's Foreign Minister reiterated that, while China welcomes the pledges coming from the Taliban interim government, recognition depends on following through with a commitment to tolerance, and combating terrorism and drug trafficking.  Did you know that the Taliban had nearly shut down opium production by 2000?  Only after the 2001 U.S.-NATO overthrow of the Taliban government did drug production take off again -- not surprisingly, especially in the province of the country under British control!

COP26 Climate Conference in Trouble


Calls from supporters to postpone the upcoming COP26 conference in Scotland indicate that the whole fragile edifice on which the global Green New Deal is built is unraveling.  As we have pointed out, few developing sector nations will surrender their sovereignty, and their development goals, to comply with the demands coherent with the fake science behind "man-made climate change"; and large nations, such as China, Russia and India are intent on advancing energy systems which will increase the Energy-Flux Density of their economies, a necessary precondition for real economic growth.  It is precisely these technological advances which are under attack by the City of London-Davos Malthusians, who are promoting instead "sustainable" and "renewable" energy systems, which will assure a rapid depopulation of the planet -- which is what they intend!

Time For The Truth About 9/11

After 20 years of coverup of the real story of what was behind the 9/11 terrorist attack on the U.S., Pres. Biden has ordered the declassification of documents which have been hidden by government agencies, especially the FBI.  LaRouche said, as the attacks were happening, that Osama Bin Laden would be blamed, but he is a "controlled entity...not an independent force."  Yet, the truth about the role of the Saudis and U.S. intelligence in creating and deploying Al Qaeda has been buried, to protect the guilty.

End of an Era? The Futility of Endless War Sinks In

by Harley Schlanger

Sept. 3—On August 31, just hours after the last U.S. plane left the Karzai International Airport in Kabul in keeping with President Biden’s withdrawal deadline, he defended that decision in an address to the American people. “The decision about Afghanistan,” the President said, “is not just about Afghanistan. It’s about ending an era of major military operations to remake other countries.” Biden’s statement, if followed through, represents what the Schiller Institute’s President Helga Zepp-LaRouche called a “phase change in international politics.” Since the collapse of the Soviet Union from 1989-91, U.S. policy has been shaped by a triumphalism predicated on the belief that America was now the world’s only superpower.

Friday Questions: What Have We Learned from the End of the 20-Year War in Afghanistan?

What does it mean to say that we have reached the "end of an era"?  It's good we are no longer putting U.S. troops in harm's way in Afghanistan.  But was this merely a way of shifting troops to beef up the military deployment to contain and confront Russia and China?  Or is it possible to really end the era of geopolitical provocations, and live in a world committed to peace and economic cooperation?  What the war hawks and proponents of empire fear is that the American people will rally behind a rejection of the policies of the last thirty years, of a "unipolar" world controlled by U.S. military power deployed under City of London and Wall Street direction, and instead restore the American system of physical economy at home, and collaborate with other nations for mutual benefit.

9/11 Was Preventable!

With all the hand-wringing and finger-pointing over events of the last two weeks in Afghanistan, two pivotal questions are not being discussed: Why were we there?; and what comes next?  The LaRouche Organization insists that, until the truth about what happened on 9/11 becomes known, the same disastrous mistakes will be made again, next time on an even larger scale.  Further, were these wars really mistakes, or instead were they deliberately designed, to keep the U.S. permanently ensnared in "endless wars"?
