LAROUCHE WARNS: ISRAELI ACTIONS IN SYRIA THREATEN WORLD WAR

3 AUG. (LPAC)–Lyndon LaRouche today warned that Israeli
actions, including the July 5 Israeli Air Force bombing of a
depot near Latakia, Syria which held Russian-made anti-ship
cruise missiles, could trigger a wider war, drawing the United
States into direct thermonuclear conflict with Russia.  LaRouche
charged that the Israeli behavior is “criminally insane” and
could cause a world war.  LaRouche added that the financial and
economic breakdown crisis in Europe and the United States has
reached an advanced stage that any day, there could be a
triggering event that leads to global conflict. He cited the
period between now and the end of September as the final phase of
an economic cycle, in which the prospects of a systemic crash is
greatly increased, moving to the end of the fiscal year.  He
warned that this is also a grave danger point for an eruption of
conflict.  One cannot rule out the outbreak of some kind of
general war between now and November, he concluded.
The Netanyahu government in Israel is going psycho over the
fact that war-avoidance elements within the Pentagon and the U.S.
intelligence community leaked the fact of the July 5 IAF bombings
to the U.S. media.  It was first and only disclosure of the
latest in a series of Israeli bombing raids against targets in
Syria.  The fact that Russian arms are being targeted by the
Israelis has profound strategic implications and the Israelis had
intended to keep the attacks secret.  On July 31, Michael Gordon
posted a story in the New York Times under the headline “Some
Syria Missiles Eluded Israeli Strike, Officials Say.”  Gordon
reported on the July 5 IAF bombing raid and reported that U.S.
intelligence community sources believe that the Israeli raid did
not destroy all of the Russian-made Yakhont anti-ship missiles in
storage.  He reported that “further Israeli strikes are
likely.”
The Gordon article was followed Aug. 2 by a story in the
Jerusalem Post, accusing Pentagon and U.S. intelligence circles
who “do not have Israeli interests at heart” of leaking the
story of the IAF strikes to damage Israel.  The author of the
Jerusalem Post piece, Yaacov Lappin, accused “elements in the
U.S. intelligence community, not in the Obama Administration” of
being behind the damaging leaks.  Prof. Efraim Inbar, of the
Sadat-Begin Center, warned that the U.S. leaking of the secret
Israeli raids was intended to embarrass Israel, and could lead to
retaliation by the Assad government.
According to U.S. intelligence sources contacted by EIR, the
leaks are intended to make clear that the United States is not
supporting the Israeli strikes against Russian targets inside
Syria.  Such strikes could lead to an escalation that directly
draws the United States into a head-on confrontation with Russia,
which has delivered weapons to the Assad government, based on
long-standing government-to-government contracts.  The fact that
elements in the U.S. intelligence community blew the whistle on
the Israeli air strikes, including details about how the IAF
conducted the air-to-surface attacks on the Latakia depot from
over the Mediterranean, caused an hysterical reaction in
Jerusalem. The message to Israel from the Pentagon and the U.S.
intelligence community faction was clear:  Further Israeli
attacks on Russian SAM sites inside Syria are not in the U.S.
interests and Israel should cut it out.  The source concurred
with LaRouche’s evaluation that the Israeli actions are insanely
dangerous and could trigger a much larger conflict.
LaRouche warned colleagues today that the madmen in London
and Washington are out to start a thermonuclear confrontation,
targeting Russia and China, unless they are stopped.  The
intelligence leaks and the insane Israeli behavior must be seen
in this overall context.
