EIR Releases 'Storm Over Asia' Video,
Hosted by Lyndon LaRouche
"Our fundamental interest as a republic, is to bring forth on this planet the hegemony of a community of sovereign nation-states, each of which has in common its commitment to the general welfare of its total population, and their posterity. Otherwise, it is not our intent to meddle in the internal affairs of these countries. It is sufficient for us that they are sincerely and seriously dedicated to promote the general welfare, as we understand the notion of the general welfare; and they understand that we as nations must stand together, against those forces of oligarchy, such as the British financial oligarchy, which are our natural enemies."
--Lyndon LaRouche, Storm Over Asia
Executive Intelligence Review magazine is pleased to announce the release of a vital policy report by Founding and Contributing Editor Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. "Storm Over Asia" is a two-and-a-half-hour video which explores, in depth, the current drift into a new global conflagration, and proposes a new American foreign policy, based on the best traditions of our Founding Fathers, to reverse that otherwise inevitable course towards war and economic ruin.
Mr. LaRouche, who is today one of three leading candidates for the Democratic Party 2000 Presidential nomination, reviews the ongoing crises in the Caucasus region along the southern tier of Russia, in the Indian subcontinent, in Africa, and in Ibero-America, exposing the hideous incompetence and worse, of the U.S. State Department under Madeleine Albright, and the outright geopolitical treachery of the Blair government in Britain. He develops the relationship between the ongoing collapse of the world financial and monetary system and the impulse towards regional, and, eventual global confrontation, drawing on the experiences of the two world wars of the 20th century.
LaRouche reviews his own role, during the period from 1977-1984, in promoting what President Ronald Reagan labelled the Strategic Defense Initiative, and how LaRouche came to the conclusion, by the autumn of 1988, that the Soviet empire was about to collapse and that the prospects for German reunification were immediately on the table. Instead of adopting LaRouche's proposals for a Marshall Plan and Food for Peace approach towards the nations of the collapsing Soviet bloc, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, U.S. President George Bush, and French President Francois Mitterrand, adopted an anti-German, anti-Russian geopolitical agenda, which led to the industrial collapse of Germany and the wholesale looting of Russia. This folly has led us to the bring of a new strategic confrontation.
To set the proper framework for understanding the current policy crisis and the appropriate solutions, LaRouche reviews the issues that shaped the American Revolution and the development of the idea of a community of principles among perfectly sovereign nation-states--the basis for John Quincy Adams' development of the American system of diplomacy. Later, LaRouche delves into the founding principles of Western Civilization, dating back to the period of the Greek Classics and the early Fathers of the Christian Church, tracing that tradition through the European Renaissance, and into the founding of the colonies in North America.
No one can claim to be prepared for the earth-shattering crises and life-and-death decisions that will face the next President of the United States, and world leaders on every continent, without studying this video report.
