It is obvious that this President doesn't let the stock markets or the dollar dictate morals and principles in his policy. There are many hedge funds and short players that are using the speech to make everyone think the market should go down so they put short pressure on it.
Tell me. How did the "war" hurt our economy in 1991? Then what makes anyone think it will hurt it now? Is BRCD going to stop selling storage switches because we drop some bombs on a lunatic? Get real. This is not about his speech. It is about manipulation.
Sometimes we have to do what is right in spite of how the market may react. I didn't vote for him to make the popular decision but the right one. This is the right decision for this time.
