When Physical Economy Trumps Financial Jiggery-Pokery
August 9, 2014 • 8:35PM

The President of the United States, Barack Obama, in a Saturday nationally televised news conference from the South Lawn of the White House, announced the escalation of U.S. military action in Iraq, which, he also admitted, was open-ended: "I don't think we are going to solve this problem in weeks. I think this is going to take some time," he stated.

This is both a brazen violation of the Constitution, which empowers the Congress, and only the Congress, to authorize war, and also another step towards the abyss of thermonuclear confrontation with Russia and China, as that policy has been crafted by the British Empire.

The Congress, the elected representatives of the American people, is not responding to reality. They are both out of Washington, D.C., and out to lunch. Even the better people are hemming and hawing, mumbling that they are concerned with "mission creep;" but they are not demanding Obama's immediate impeachment, as is required. The more lunatic fringe, Republicans and Democrats alike, are calling for Obama to get the American military involved more fulsomely and rapidly.

The Russian government, on the other hand, is responding to reality. For example, Sergei Glazyev, a leading advisor to President Vladimir Putin, told Bloomberg that "There's a war waged against Russia with economic sanctions and military conflicts roiling Ukraine to Iraq," the wire service reported. Glazyev explained: "The point of a series of regional wars organized by the Americans, especially today's catastrophe in Ukraine, centers on the U.S. securing control over all of north Eurasia [to bolster] its position against China."

Glazyev said Russia was systematically countering the economic warfare being waged against the country. "Our chief response is the implementation of a plan for fast-track development of the Russian economy on the basis of a new technological order. This plan includes a transition to a sovereign monetary system underpinned by internal sources of credit, an active policy of innovation and support for progress in science and technology." And he emphasized the importance of Russian economic cooperation with China in that regard.

Lyndon LaRouche commented today on the Glazyev policy statement, saying that it was good, but added:

"You need one thing in there that's missing: helium-3. We've got to get helium-3 in there! That's how it works. Because only once you understand that helium-3, sitting up there [on the Moon], is the thing that makes it possible for you to do this, then you have a motive. If you don't understand that, you don't have a clear motive."

"You have to look at, very simply, the whole helium-3 process: That's your entire motive, that's your means, that's your method. There's a peculiarity about this particular aspect of the Solar System, which has these characteristics... And the only way you're going to get it, is by the helium-3 method. So therefore, we concentrated on the helium-3 subject, knowing that we have to exploit the helium-3 subject as the basis of building up the foundations of our economy. We can't do anything without that. And that's the point.

"The problem with the others," LaRouche said, is that "they don't get it yet. They don't get it. They don't get how the Solar System is organized. And when we get into the Solar System, deeply in this thing, we're going to understand some other things which are quite relevant. We're going to take over the Solar System. How are we going to do it? We're going to realize what it is! Helium-3! That's it! And it's the only way you can ever do it.

"So: You have to respect Kepler. Kepler is the man who made this possible."
