October 20—By the time you read this, U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney may already have been driven from office. Cheney was the architect of the disastrous war in Iraq, now being referred to as "the greatest strategic disaster in U.S. history", and it is he who actually runs the administration of the pathetic, mentally-disturbed President George W. Bush.
Cheney and his associates are under investigation for a series of crimes related to that war, most prominently for leaking the identity of undercover CIA officer Valerie Plame Wilson. Before the war, Wilson's husband, former diplomat Joseph Wilson IV, had exposed Cheney's "Saddam is building a bomb" claim as a fraud. Enraged, Cheney took revenge on Wilson's wife. Through endless lies, Cheney and his neoconservative cabal launched the Iraq war as the first phase of a permanent war/permanent revolution strategy for decades to come. Endorsing those lies under the guise of "fighting terrorism" and "spreading democracy", the Australian government signed onto both Iraq, and to Cheney's permanent war/permanent revolution strategy.
The sociopath Cheney has been widely feared as a thug and a killer. His present legal troubles are the result of a revolt by U.S. governmental institutions, which was itself organised through a relentless campaign by U.S. statesman and economist Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. LaRouche unleashed his drive to oust Cheney well before the Iraq war, in a September 20, 2002 statement, "Iraq is a Fuse, But Cheney Built the Bomb". Over the next several years the LaRouche movement circulated tens of millions of flyers, pamphlets and books exposing the actually-fascist roots of the "neoconservative" cabal headed by Cheney, until institutional forces in the U.S. finally summoned the courage to join the battle.
The fall of Cheney will unleash political earthquakes worldwide. Liberal Imperialist British PM Tony Blair, Cheney's co-conspirator for the Iraq war, will go, and the Blair/Cheney-allied Howard/ Beazley pro-globalisation mafia which has dominated Australian politics since bankers' puppets Hawke and Keating came to power in 1983, will be on the way out, as well.
With the neocons driven from power in Washington, the U.S., in conjunction with other governments, can deal with the now-unfolding worst financial crisis in world history.
