The push for war on the part of the British Empire stems from their recognition that their system of rule—the monetary system—is dead. The intention to launch war has been most blatant since the murder of Ghadaffi under the guise of humanitarian regime change. Subsequent to that hideous act the timeline for transitioning into full-fledged general warfare, via staged conflicts in Syria and Iran, has been contracting and the efforts to stop it have become all the more important.

The arch of present events is shaped by this monetary empire's desperate attempt to force nations like Russia and China into submission over their defense of sovereignty of nations. However, the resistance opposing this war drive, primarily expressed by Russia, as well as key ranking figures in the U.S., has thus far been relatively successful.

Yet, it must be kept in mind that the more successful this resistance is, the more desperate the lunatics behind the drive become; thermonuclear annihilation is a very plausible outcome. The only final solution to end the stranglehold that the Empire has held is to end the Empire once and for all by ridding the planet of it's failed monetary system and returning to the principles of an American Credit system and physical economic development.

EIR Counterintelligence Editor Jeffrey Steinberg was interviewed last week by The LaRouche Show host Harley Schlanger. The topic was "The Coming Overdue Defeat of the British Empire." Click here for the mp3 audio.

Around 89% of Syrians approved a new constitution, proposed by President Bashar al-Assad, in a referendum on Sunday Feb. 26, state television said Monday. Turnout in the referendum was 57.4% nationwide, state television said. Fewer voters turned out in the areas of Rukneddine and Barzeh, where anti-government protesters have recently demonstrated.

China responded to Hillary Clinton's denunciation of its and Russia's position on Syria, where she labeled both countries "despicable." "This is totally unacceptable for us," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei told a daily briefing.

As the Syrians voted to usher in a new Constitution that would end the one-party rule of the Ba'ath Party, the anti-al-Assad regime change crowd crowed for harsher measures. European foreign ministers at a meeting at Brussels on Feb. 27 declared they would freeze the assets of several Syrian government officials and impose sanctions on the country's central bank.

Russia's state-owned First Channel TV, followed by state television Rossiya-1 and other channels, Monday revealed that Ukrainian and Russian security services last month foiled an attempt on the life of Russian Prime Minister Putin.
