The Wall Street Journal was today supplied with a leak from the White House that a “Plan B” is being prepared for Syria, in the case that the ceasefire fails. Manpads – man-portable air defense systems, capable of taking down Russian and Syrian war planes – are to be supplied to terrorists (referred to as the “moderate opposition”) in Syria, according to the unnamed official sources. The message in the Journal is not subtle:
I.e., Plan B is to launch a war on Russia.
It should be remembered that the US provided huge quantities of Stinger antiaircraft missiles to the mujaheddin in Afghanistan in 1986 to use against Russian planes and helicopters, a mujaheddin which had been recruited and trained by the British and the CIA from Saudi Arabia and other Islamic states around the world, thus giving birth to al-Qaeda. The pattern today is the same.
That this is the plan is made clear by the fact that on the same day as the Wall Street Journal revelation about the war plan, Obama visited CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia. He will have discussed the urgency of stopping Russia and the legitimate Syrian government from consolidating their victory against the terrorist scourge in that war-ravaged nation. Then, next week, Obama flies to Saudi Arabia to meet with the funders and controllers of the terrorist networks internationally among the Saudi Royalty, before moving on to London to pay obeisance to the the Bloody Queen and to the Saudis’ controllers in Buckingham Palace.
But things are not going well for the mass killer in the White House. Sunday night’s CBS “60 Minutes” expose on the role of the Saudis in the 9/11 terror attack on the United States, moving the LaRouche movement’s campaign into the popular limelight, comes only days before Obama travels to Saudi Arabia.
At the same time, Obama’s role in destroying the American economy is exploding in his face, as the so-called “slow recovery” is now sliding rapidly into zero or negative growth, despite frantic measures to impose negative interest rates across the advanced sector, and increasing talk of “helicopter money” — literally placing newly printed money in banks, businesses and even private accounts, desperately trying to hold back the tide of the financial disintegration of the western financial system.
Even the Federal Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) admitted today that most of the leading banks have failed once again to demonstrate any capacity to survive the coming crash without yet another massive taxpayer bailout — which, in fact, is impossible in the current state of the economy. The former Kansas City Federal Reserve Chairman Thomas Hoenig, now the Vice Chairman of the FDIC, issued a statement on the state of the SIFIs (Systemically Important Financial Institutions, or the “too big to fail” banks):
Another campaign led by the LaRouche Movement is also rising up to challenge Obama and his bankrupt Wall Street sponsors — the restoration of Franklin Roosevelt’s Glass Steagall, to shut down Wall Street and restore the American System of creditary banking. Even a member of the Treasury Department’s Financial Research Advisory Committee today ridiculed Obama’s Dodd-Frank as a cover for doing nothing, and demanded restoration of Glass Steagall.
Nothing but cowardice and ignorance stand in the way of the United States and Europe joining China’s New Silk Road process, building infrastructure and building nations internationally. Jin Liqun, the head of the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), spoke today in Washington DC for the first time since taking the position. In response to a question from EIR, Jin called on America to join in the Silk Road process, noting that the US itself is in great need of rebuilding its infrastructure, and that China is ready and able to help. Will Americans wake up and join the new paradigm, or sink with Obama into chaos and war?
