In this ATL the purges never happened, though I cannot remember the reason why. I will have to go back and look. Mikhail Meltyukhov shows it in his study Stalin's Missed Chance. I'd have put the Soviet Invasion in - since that very nearly happened OTL Stalin wanted to use the Munich Crisis to invade Kresy under the guise of sending aid to Czechoslovakia Tim Snyder mentions that Stalin began another round of deporting and killing Poles in sensitive border areas to prepare for the invasion of Poland.

All of this overlaps with the policies of the banks, on the one side, and also the EU Commission. The anti-nuclear demonstrations are nothing more than "flash mobs," which are being financed by the London fondi oligarchical family funds.

Zepp-LaRouche described once again, in her final appeal to the conference, the world's disastrous state: On the one hand, 1. She asked the guests to participate in a huge Schiller Institute mobilization, to form a strong movement of people who will take upon themselves the development of the world. In , we Germans used to say, "Never again," and now it is time to finally overcome the world's underdevelopment, and for mankind to achieve adulthood, she concluded. After Zepp-LaRouche's speech, U. Hal Cooper laid out the project for building a tunnel across the Bering Strait, and subsequently a railway.
The Bering Strait, said Cooper, is a critical pivot-point, through whose development a political and economic realignment of the world could be achieved. In , Colorado Gov. The First World War, Cooper said, effectively sabotaged cooperation of the Eurasian nations for major rail projects. The tunnel under the Bering Strait would be built out of granite and sandstone, at a depth of about meters, and construction would include a gas pipeline from Russia to Alaska, and superconducting power lines for loss-free electricity transmission.
Construction of some power plants could generate the 2, MW of electric power needed for the railroad, as well as for the local economy. The tunnel is particularly important for freight transport, including all sorts of mining products such as gold, lead, and coal. The savings of time and money that would result from reducing transport distances would make the system much cheaper than the current use of ships for carrying cargo.
The whole venture, Cooper said, would create , China and its partners have already been building connecting lines through Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, Turkey, Myanmar, India, and Pakistan. Just last month, the route from Istanbul to Islamabad was dedicated, which, as part of the Eurasian Land-Bridge, could be connected directly to the Bering Strait line. Such an overland system, according to Cooper, would, for the first time, create a situation in which nations are not isolated from each other and manipulated against one another.

If LaRouche's goal of a Four-Power agreement is realized, then we will have a worldwide rail system from Cape Horn to the Cape of Good Hope, which will not only foster economic well-being in all the countries concerned, but woulud also make it possible to finally end the power of the Anglo-Dutch oligarchy. Sergei Cherkasov, from the Vernadsky State Geological Museum of the Russian Academy of Sciences, spoke next about infrastructure projects, raw materials, and mining along the Trans-Siberian railway, the Baikal-Amur Mainline, and the Bering Strait connection that remains to be built.
The reasons that these long railway lines were begun, such as the Trans-Siberian Railway, built between and , were both political and economic. During the Tsarist Empire, it used to take about 3 months, often months, for the mail to go between Moscow and Vladivostok. Some cities already had industries, and the most obvious thing was to connect them with each other.
The stretch of the railroad between Krasnoyarsk and Irkutsk is about 1, km; the total span from Moscow to Vladivostok is about 9, km; and the part built from Chelyabinsk in the Ural Mountains to Vladivostok in is about 7, km. The most difficult line was the one going around Lake Baikal, which was on average five times as expensive as the rest of the route. Industrial centers were built along the line, and natural resources were developed, which otherwise would not have been feasible economically.
The very fact of the construction of the entire route under 19th-Century conditions—that is, without the technical resources we have today—makes the whole project a wonder of the world, said Dr. Some provinces with newly discovered silver and gold ore deposits are larger than the landmass of Germany. The task now is to determine the distribution of yet-undiscovered resources, since by no means have all areas been investigated, and there is still much more to discover.
Cherkasov clearly opposed the assumption that the Earth's raw materials have been exhausted. All it means is that a particular metal, for example, will be exhausted in five years, he said.
But the Earth's radius is 6, km, and so far in Russia, we have only extensively explored the surface, hardly deeper than meters, whereas Germany has uranium mineshafts over 2 km deep, and South Africa has shafts 4 km deep. The supply of mineral resources is still incalculably vast. It takes large factories to exploit the basic types of metal, such as in Norilsk, where , people live and work. Only , people live in the whole of Yakutia, which is the size of Western Europe! We have to motivate people to go there, and work under the harsh conditions.
The Schiller Institute's vice president in Germany, Portia Tarumbwa-Strid, raised in her speech the issue of the "moral imperative" of development policy, and called for a new era of brotherhood of nations, with common goals such as supplying clean drinking water and food for all. The international community today has failed, since, statistically, a child dies from hunger every six seconds; in Chad and Niger, 20 million people are starving to death, while food price inflation, driven by speculation on the commodity markets, is actually even higher than in , when the global protests against hunger broke out.
The Jonglei Canal is important to correct the problem of the swampiness of the Nile, and simultaneously to eradicate the malaria epidemics in the region, and to build up Sudan's agriculture as the "breadbasket of Africa. Besides, according to Tarumbwa-Strid, the Sahara is by no means as dry as it looks superficially; satellite photos have shown underground lakes and rivers, which could provide water for hundreds of years. Another task is the taming of the wild rivers that are still not navigable, and are not being used to produce hydroelectric energy.
The Congo basin alone has enormous potential, as the second-largest region of the world in terms of rainfall. Tarumbwa-Strid then presented exclusive work by the Italian engineer Dr. Marcello Vichi see accompanying article , who had conceived of the Transaqua project, and who said that for over 30 years, all the technologies and information have existed that would be required for pan-African infrastructure projects to overcome the chronic underdevelopment. It is the lack of political will that has prevented this up to now. The Transaqua project would create a giant labor market and local development models in Africa.
Those 30 years took a high economic, political, and human toll. Furthermore, said Tarumbwa-Strid, since Africa has no continental rail network, countless crops have rotted without ever reaching a market.

She strongly endorsed the construction of nuclear desalination plants and a Transrapid maglev network, so that the continent that is now dark and dying, will become, in generations, a paradise bathed with light. It is not the Africans who are to blame for the underdevelopment of Africa, but the international financial system, which invests in such projects as Desertec, to place solar panels across the desert, which is favored by the Club of Rome.
Desertec is not at all "green," since, on the contrary, it would mean the extermination of entire species of insects, while fertile land is rendered useless, all so that the electric power generated will not remain in Africa, but is delivered to Europe. This is the wrong way to go, said Tarumbwa-Strid. It would be much better to revive the policy of Chancellor Otto von Bismarck, who was mentioned by Zimbabwe's Information Minister at the EU summit in ; he said that Germany needed a leader like Bismarck, who had fought for unification of the peoples and the overcoming of injustice.
Chancellor Merkel should learn her German history. In any case, the policy of the EU today is felt to be worse than the policy of the colonial period. The only hope for justice for Africa is high-technology transfer. The German productive Mittelstand , the small and medium-sized business sector, should take on contracts for various aspects of the Transaqua project, and young people should learn the skills required for the tasks of the 21st Century by becoming engineers, technicians, scientists, and machine-builders. If this had been done back in the s, young Africans today would not know about HIV, child soldiers, and the generation of refugees.
The year is now the year that mankind should achieve moral adulthood. East Germany , and gave some personal assessments of the nuclear energy situation. The propaganda in various current publications, he said, is doing great harm to our country and our economy.
