VIDEO: Three Times LaRouche Forecast Today's Crisis—And The Way Out
Often the targets of warfare paraded across our television screens are merely proxies—casualties, but not the targets themselves. Similarly, the motives for such conflicts are rarely what they appear, what is presented as two warring factions, are often compounded interests around the world, and throughout time. This means that solving these "conflicts" involves understanding interests, economic and otherwise, it means knowing what motivates whole cultures, and what leverage exists to bring people to the bargaining table. Throughout his career as an economist and statesman, Lyndon LaRouche forecast, in detail, many of the current problems engulfing the planet today. He studied and came to master the factors driving human history and was therefore able to present competent solutions often way ahead of their time. For students of history, activists, and citizens everywhere, study Mr. LaRouche and the method he developed for understanding even the most complex crises, and their solutions.
Here, we present excerpts from three speeches from Mr. LaRouche, where he lays out the actors, motives, and genesis of the current crisis in the Middle East, and the kind of thinking that can bring genuine, lasting peace to the region and the planet.
LaRouche: For Middle East Peace, Change the World in Which the Middle East is Located
In a speech on May 4, 2009, at Central Connecticut State University, Lyndon LaRouche traced the history of the present conflict in the Middle East to British imperial policies, emphasizing that at solution to the endless wars in this region will not come from dynamics from within the region because all players are being played.
In an editorial in EIR Magazine on November 12, 2009, LaRouche expanded on this:
“Until and unless you eliminate this British permanent war/permanent revolution factor by kicking the British—typified by the so-called Quartet peace negotiator Tony Blair—out of the region, and defeating the power of this British imperial apparatus, no meaningful breakthrough toward peace is remotely possible.” LaRouche holds that a Four Power Agreement between Russia, China, India, and the United States for a new credit system, rather than the British imperial monetary system, replacing war with development, is the path to peace.

Storm Over Asia
When Lyndon LaRouche recorded “Storm Over Asia” twenty years ago, there was no economic development process like China’s Belt and Road Initiative, involving over 155 nations. Russia was just emerging, under the leadership of Vladimir Putin, from a vicious eight-year looting spree that had been carried out by the International Monetary Fund, resulting in the reduction of the Russian population by one million people per year. The September 11, 2001 attack on America, and the subsequent Afghanistan and Second Iraq Wars, had not yet occurred.
This is not an internal US matter, but, as recent events have shown, of the utmost global strategic importance. The destabilization of the American Presidency at this time endangers the world, disrupting China’s and Russia’s leaders attempts to collaborate with the United States to put an end to potential conflicts with North Korea, Iran, and other nations.
In the flurry of contradictory wartime propaganda bombarding the American people in recent days, this presentation by Lyndon LaRouche is essential.
LaRouche, who passed away February 12 of last year, was known for his unique strategic analysis and analytical method. This method, also referred to as the “LaRouche-Riemann method” allowed him to accurately forecast certain future developments. This method is starkly demonstrated to the viewer who watches “Storm Over Asia” in its entirety.
LaRouche’s clarity, both about the ongoing role of British intelligence against the interests of the United States, as well as the disastrous role of British Intelligence asset Sir George Bush 41, even going back to 1975, is striking . LaRouche in “Storm Over Asia” also anticipates the policy disasters of the later Bush 43 and Barack Obama Administrations, years before they existed.
If the United States joins forces, now, with Russia, China and India—the nations LaRouche identified twenty years ago, —and makes economic development the basis for peace, the storm clouds of impending war, gathering as we speak, can be dissipated.
