While Ahabs are, of course, innately no different than other people, their region has fallen behind the rest of the world and is incredibly backwards. Finite oil revenues, prevent starvation for now.
Arabs have prospered outside of the region, Arab-Americans and Arab-Brazilians, for instance, are incredibly successfully
Why can't Arabs duplicate this success in the Arab world?
Why is Arab achievement - as often the case - only possible in the Americas and the Western culture ?
Not all Arabs are backwards.
UAE - A model of intelligent design
UAE is not the norm
The UAE is modern and educated.
I do not see the UAE attacking Israel or Christianity............
Does this show a lack of religious conviction ?
Yes - The USA was a better shot in both Vietnam and Iraq.
Saddam swings from a rope. Bush smiles.
............... Being a better shot, is important.
Hamas throws a rock / Israel fires a bullet
Hamas fires a rocket - puts a hole in a parking lot / Israel drops a larger bomb - kills 78 terrorist.
Egypt, Saudi, give little assistance to Hamas.
USA gives significant assistance to Israel.
On life, it is best to support the righteous, the intelligent, those who will survive far into the future.
Or on the flip side of the coin, support delta, trailer trash, delusional Harry Dent.
Life is a choice.
When the Bull Market will fall ?
Every Bull Market is followed by a Bear market.........that's easy
Does it matter to know the exact date ?
Over time, stocks always go higher. 1929, 1987, 2000, 2007 all followed by new highs.
UVXY and SDS will never see a new high.
You can not fix stupid.
This correction is mild, tame, a pause that refreshes.
Print baby print, keep the party going.............
a small siesta
Stocks will protect the wealthy from inflation.
Holding uvxy and sds - did not help delta.
I think the reaction of Israel's neighbors to Israel gives a clue as to the Arabs' lack of development. Israel ought to be an economic boon to neighboring Arab countries, not a problem. Israel possesses the developed technology that many of its neighbors lack. These Arab countries could engage in trade and commerce with Israel and gain from Israel's knowledge. They could encourage Israeli businesses to establish branches in their countries -- a move that would lead to a growth of knowledge. Instead, they've been trying to destroy Israel ever since it was founded.
Stock market fails to open, in the Mid East.
Mustims are backward educationally, socially, and economically and in world power politically. Need to make a self-critical study: Nobel Prize winners, Olympic Gold Medal winners. Number of Books published, number of Articles published. Number of scientists per 100,000 population.

What does it take to banned from a yahoo message board ?
Simple answers only
dumb it down far enough, so I might learn something.
Gaza fires rockets at Israel - Little damage, no deaths
Israel fires rockets at Gaza - Major damage and 79 terrorist killed
Who is a better shot ?
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Randorn is correct - No one knows the date or event, to break the camel's back.
But we know we are closer today, than we were a few years ago.
Hindsight will be 20/20.
Oil behaves for now. Brent crude headed for its biggest weekly decline in six months as Libya prepared to resume exports from two terminals and Iraq’s crude production remained unaffected by violence. West Texas Intermediate fell for a seventh day, the longest retreat since 2009.
Brent and WTI futures both slipped by 0.3 percent today. Libya will start shipping crude from Es Sider and Ras Lanuf at full capacity after taking back control of the ports from rebels, according to National Oil Corp. Fighting in Iraq hasn’t spread to the south, home to more than three-quarters of its output. Hurricane Arthur, the first to make landfall on the U.S. since 2012, weakened as it pulled away from North Carolina.
The thing which pushed oil really down was Libya saying it will reopen the two terminals, see what actually happens, but for the moment it gives some relief. In Iraq I expect exports and production will probably remain untouched.
George Soros: EU Must Issue #$%$100bn Bonds to Solve Growth Crisis
Europe also has the ability to print and issue debt,
The printing press will run at full speed, for years and decades to come. life goes on.
One day China and Japan will refuse to buy US treasuries
randorn - china and japan and Russia stopped buying us treasuries a few years ago.
the market did not crash..........
who is buying the US Debt ? The USA is buying its own debt, via printing. A perfect shell game.
As I have said before - When you own the World Reserve Currency - you can print what ever you need.
For now - no other currency comes close to the US Dollar...........none, nada, zip
This is why printing will last a lot longer, than most can conceive.
actually china and Russia have been net sellers of US Bonds. Slow selling to prevent a crash in the bond market, to save their own rear end.
Maestro ( Greenspan ) will have passed on, long before this cycle is over.
This cycle might last for 100 years or longer.
The Fed can not stop printing, the Fed's balance sheet will continue to expand.
What is not known, is the rate of expansion. Or the end of this fiat cycle.
Will Hyper Inflation come ? Bond rates rise to a point, where investors actually want to buy debt again. In 1979, the long bond hit 15% and the world did not end, nor the financial market crash.
Ten years later in 1989, the stock market went from 2000 to 10,000.
Yes, there will be a bond crash someday, and smart investors be buying bonds for pennies on the dollar. Other smart investors will be buying stocks at discounted prices. The cycle goes on.
