There are news reports that "US assassination squads" have killed some Iraq Baath Party officials and are actively seeking other top pro-Hussein individuals. Sounds like "hooray for the good guys" doesn't it? But only at first glance, my naive friends. If this is true, the days of certain US politicians and bureaucrats or other high profile Americans are probably numbered. ("An eye for an eye..." is a major tenet of the Arab psyche). BTW, this is NOT a recommendation, this is just IMHO.
So far, there have reportedly been between 480 - 570 Iraqi civilians killed. "We had to kill them to 'liberate' them Sir." (Sound familiar?) This "hunt for WMDs" gets uglier and uglier and the consequences are gonna grow like a weed. Stand by for some eventual REAL bad news folks.
A friend of mine was offered a complete wine cellar in a European failing rstaurant. 100,000 Euro's for the entire cellar. He figures he can double the money selling it off to other restaurants over the next 3 years.
I passed on getting in on it.
Sheez, Palefire -- You've been on your heels all day from what I've read. Are we getting a little war weary? Things do seem to be going well in Iraq and I know that's bad for AU and your end of the world theory. Or is it you're still sick? -- Vaginal dryness again?
Doug Cass has been long stocks since a couple of weeks after being short for a long time. He probably has not made any money on the long side yet. He will say anything what serves his short term trading purpose including faking, lying, and manipulating.
"just as I predicted, this little adventure has led to a complete loss of interest in economic fundamentals. "
=> That was the whole purpose in my view. Save -what is left to save- from the US economy by going to play war games.
You need to realize that beyond the blindness and stipidity there are also reasons of self protection by a certain amount of people as they know this madness is criminal and immoral, but choose to ignore it because they think they will be getting better from it.
Sort of, "who cares what our fierce leader does, I trust him completely as he will make America strong again !! If this means we have to play some war games I will be patriotic and support the hell out of it..."
There is no way the government can be right about this Iraqi adventure. That would be highly exceptional. Those of us who have some acquaintance with the financial system and the systemic risks in it, know very well that the government and its agents have gotten everything wrong.
Could you please prove that statement.
<<<"Why do you see facts that contradict the BS you've been fed as "self proclaimed wisdom?">>>
Here you go again with your self-proclaimed wisdom! Since when does your opinion, feeling or judgement equate with FACTS?
Your arrogance just gets thicker and thicker to the point of pure conceit!
