The Euro versus the Dollar
and the Iran Oil Bourse

 

LarRouche remarks that:

the oil bourse isn't significant - the problem lies in the aftermath
of an intention by Dick Cheney and others in the United States to
launch a probably three-day total aerial attack on Iran, from
combined U.S. fleet--that is, aircraft carriers, three of
them--from B-2 bombers, from B-52 bombers and so forth, and
missiles, on Iran.

This has nothing to do with Iran.
It had nothing to do with Iraq. 
It had nothing to do with Afghanistan. 
There was no reason to go into Iraq. 
There was no reason to go into Afghanistan. 
There is no reason to go into Iran. 

  The real targets of this policy include
 
China, Russia, and other countries! 
It includes
countries of Africa, as well.

 


Dialog with LaRouche at the  LAROUCHE NUCLEAR FORUM IN IBERO-AMERICA -

June 15, 2006


Q: [trans] There's a question from Mr. Hector Giuliano [ph].
What do you think about Iran's question. I wanted to ask Dr.
LaRouche a question: What's your view of Iran's announcement of
the creation of an oil bourse, which would be denominated in
euros?... [continuing technical problems; translator explains the
technical problems] But I trust you heard the question that was
asked about what do you think about a euro-denominated oil bourse
being set up by Iran, and they would like to know your response
to that, Mr. LaRouche?


LAROUCHE: I don't think it's too significant, don't think
it's too important. You have a process under way now, which is
actually accelerated by the meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation
Organization this week. That the problem lies in the aftermath
of an intention by Dick Cheney and others in the United States to
launch a probably three-day total aerial attack on Iran, from
combined U.S. fleet--that is, aircraft carriers, three of
them--from B-2 bombers, from B-52 bombers and so forth, and
missiles, on Iran.


Now, the problem here is people don't understand it, because
they look at it too narrowly. They look at it from a press
standpoint. They say the problem is there's a conflict between
the United States and Iran. Well, there is a conflict between
the United States and Iran, because the United States is
threatening to attack Iran! That is a conflict.


But the {cause} of the problem has nothing to do with Iran.
It had nothing to do with Iraq. It had nothing to do with
Afghanistan. There was no reason to go into Iraq. There was no
reason to back into Afghanistan. There is no reason to go into
Iran. And these are not the only targets. The targets of this
policy include China, Russia, and other countries! It includes
countries of Africa, as well.


So what you have is a group, an Anglo-American group, with a
French Synarchist alliance, which is moving for a {world empire}.
And what they're doing, is they're picking targets which they
think they can handle, in order to create chaos on this planet,
and create a Synarchist empire of the type that the friends of
Hitler wanted back in the 1930s.


So you have an imperial thrust, from international financial
interests {behind} the Bush Administration, and behind the Blair
Administration in government, for example. And elsewhere. Also
some people in France. They're pushing for conflict. Their
targets include the destruction of China, the destruction of
Russia, the destruction of other parts of the world.
Iran was not the cause, the existence of Iran, or a
condition in Iran was not the cause of the crisis. There are
problems in Iran, there are problems with Iran, as there are
problems in most parts of the world, among most countries on one
basis or another. These are not necessarily the causes for a
military or related major conflict. We've come into a period
where negotiations and diplomacy are to be prepared to warfare.


And the question of the euro, denominating the Iran currency in
euros, rather than dollars, is a result of a collapse of the U.S.
dollar. And a feared collapse of the U.S. dollar, and a shift by
some Europeans, like the French in particular, to try to get a
euro-bloc of currency for whatever assets may be found in the
world.


However, the problem, the question of the Iranian oil, is a
question of can we come to an agreement, with Iran, of the type
that Russia and China are working to facilitate, that Germany is
interested in facilitating? If that agreement is established, we
have no problem. But then, we have a dollar problem, not a euro
problem. The euro won't last very long. The euro is about to be
broken up anyway. It's a bad idea, whose time to die has come!


What is needed is to deal with the dollar problem. The dollar is
now virtually bankrupt. I could deal with the problem, if I were
President, or if people in the United States would do what I tell
them we have to do, we could deal with it. It's not a real
problem. See, the problem is today, in the U.S., with the
dollar, is that interests led by the French Synarchists are
presently determined to destroy the U.S. automobile industry, by
ruining it; and destroying the ability of the United States to
have a machine-tool capability, that at that point, if that were
to occur, the United States would become a joke. If the auto
industry is shut down, as Felix Rohatyn and other people are
determined to do--the Synarchist, Felix Rohatyn--then the U.S.
dollar is worthless. If we defeat them, if the U.S. auto
industry is saved with its machine-tool capability, and if other
reforms are made which are consistent with that, the U.S. dollar
will be the strongest on the planet.


Because, well look: The Chinese hold, what? Dollar assets.
What do other parts of the world hold? Dollar assets. If the
dollar collapses in value, what happens to those economies that
have dollar assets? Or whose debts are denominated in dollars?
What happens to them? What happens to those who depend upon the
market which the U.S. dollar represents in the world? U.S.-based
credit?


So the problem today, is the dollar--not the euro, not Iran.
The problem, today, is you have people like Cheney and his
masters, who are determined to plunge the world into war. The
problem today is the lack of leadership, to act on the
understanding that this is the problem. You have more and more
people in the world who recognize that this is the problem. But
you don't have enough of those people who recognize the problem,
who are willing to act and put their necks out, on that issue:
That's what I'm doing! I stick my neck out. I get into trouble
once in a while, as you may have heard. And I get into trouble,
because I'm a political threat to my enemies. Or the enemies that
have chosen to be my enemies. And that's the problem.


So, there is, yes, there's disorder, a sense of disorder in
this idea of the euro market for the Iran oil. But that is
really not a major problem. The major problem is the fact that
the U.S. dollar is threatened with a major collapse.
You have to realize, that we're in a point, that between now
and September, we are in danger of {a collapse of the dollar}! A
tragic collapse of the dollar, which will be tragic for every
nation in the world. It will start a general collapse beyond
anything we experienced in 1928 to 1933. {That's} the danger.




About LaRouche - the American economist and statesman that has become a legend in our time in the fight to advance civilization, protect mankind, and create a new renaissance: 

" We are at a point in world history. 
At the present time, the international monetary financial system
of the world is in the process of disintegration. That does not mean the end of the world. It means that we either make certain changes, or this
planet will go in fact into a prolonged new dark age, comparable
to what happened to Europe during the middle to late part of the
14th century." (LaRouche, June 15, 2006)
