Bankrupt British Empire Setting World on Trajectory to Thermonuclear War
We are now on the verge of a general thermonuclear war. That does not mean that that war is going to actually happen, because one of our concerns is to do the things which may be effective in preventing that war from breaking out... We are on the edge, unless we can topple Wall Street, Wall Street's power. Wall Street and the British Empire, but especially Wall Street, are so bankrupt that they are on the verge of an impossible collapse. That is, there's no way that they can avoid a collapse. The only alternative they have for their system, is to push the effect of a general thermonuclear war.

Veteran Daily Telegraph columnist Liam Halligan, a vocal proponent of a return to the Glass-Steagall standard internationally, warned yesterday that the Western financial and military assault against Russia could backfire and bring down the entire trans-Atlantic financial system.
"Should we really welcome a currency collapse in one of the world's major economies? Is that sensible, given the systemic dangers lurking, represented not least by the end of U.S. quantitative easing and overpriced Western stocks?... We could also provoke a repeat of the systemic global meltdown of 2008, in which the big Western economies would suffer more than most."
"That is exactly true," Lyndon LaRouche commented yesterday. Just look at the accounts. Look at the level of quantitative easing, which has now surpassed $11 trillion across the trans- Atlantic financial system, since it was launched in 2008. How long can the United States continue hyperinflating? LaRouche asked. This just shows how utterly bankrupt Wall Street and the British Empire are. And that is the desperation factor behind their current drive for economic and military thermonuclear war against Russia and the BRICS nations in general.
As long as Wall Street tries to bail out their speculative investments, they will go to war to defend those speculative investments, LaRouche emphasized. That is the essence of the danger we face. Now look at what the Republican Party is doing, and you will see that, with precious few exceptions, the Republicans, as a party, are the worst enemy of the United States itself. They are backing Wall Street and the City of London's drive for unrestricted looting, which means a trajectory to war. And there are those among them that are embarked on the mission of placing yet another fascist Bush in the White House.
Russian President Putin continues to prepare his nation and its institutions for war, seeing very clearly that the financial warfare being waged against Russia, is part and parcel of the color revolution assault and the general drive for war. He is not plunging ahead on impulse, LaRouche noted, but he is systematically preparing. A day after speaking to the Defense Ministry Board, Putin told a celebration of the Security Agency Workers Day:
"No one has ever succeeded in scaring, suppressing or isolating Russia and never will... It happened several times: in the 1920s, the 1940s and later. It did not work then and it will not work now."
He went on to charge security agency workers with the vital task of "protecting Russia's economic interests, as well as combatting international terrorism."
LaRouche noted that this re-statement of Russia's policy is obvious, and has been evident for some time, for anyone willing to see. It is also the case that Russia and China, as respectively sovereign nations, are also partners, he emphasized.
In light of that reality, LaRouche said, what are the idiots in Washington, D.C. doing?
