War Drums

The beat of the war drums continues to quicken today. Here's a summary of the latest headlines.

Probably the most important, new development is the #occupyUKembassy movement. When you consider that it is often Iranian "students" who attempt these things and, keeping in mind that the "students" do not act without the official blessing of the Iranian government, what we have here is a clear provocation. Embassy ground is considered sovereign territory, after all. The question is: What will the British response be? I'm confident it will be bluster and outrage but nothing more. What do you expect them to do? Dispatch the Royal Marines? Hah!

Next up, Israel. Several Katyushas were launched into Israel today from southern Lebanon. The first such "attack" in over two years.

Meanwhile, the fun continues in Syria:

And lest we forget the ever-dangerous Pakistan:

So, when these sparks eventually ignite a worldwide fire, what can we expect financially? Stocks will plummet. The dollar will rally. Crude will soar. Gold will rally. Silver will likely be flat to down. (Important to note that this week's CoT was much more bullish for both gold and silver. Breakouts appear to be forthcoming.)

We live in very dangerous times. Do not bury your head. Only those who have prepared, mentally and financially, will be able to avoid the urge to panic. You must be awake. You must be prepared to lead. Stay diligent. TF

Just realize TF...

England has been abusing and f*cking around with the ancient country of Iran since even before the CIA overthrow of the freely elected popular leader Mossadegh in 1953.

"When you consider that it is often Iranian "students" who attempt these things and, keeping in mind that the "students" do not act without the official blessing of the Iranian government, what we have here is a clear provocation. Embassy ground is considered sovereign territory, after all."

See, I'm thinking that murdering the elected leader and forcing a "Shah" back onto the People of Iran in order to strip their Oil assets more efficiently probably counts as "a clear provocation". You?

And Embassy ground is considered sovereign territory? Oh yeah... that...

Well it's funny how the London/Wall Street/Tel Aviv axis of Financial Terrorism isn't ever too constrained by any notion of National Sovereignty when knocking over one country after another. Isn't it just so funny?

Going on the very examples that the USA, UK and Israel have set there, why would you possibly ask the Iranians (students or other: who cares? are not all Iranians allowed to dislike their Invaders?) to hold themselves to a higher standard than the West did? Isn't that being a wee bit selective and out of tune with the historical facts of what we did to Iran, and the impacts our criminal actions have led to? You do realize that this is OUR fault, no?

What goes around comes around Turd. Please take a few minutes to read up on the 1953 CIA overthrow of Iran's duly elected govt, and how the British were behind what happened there from the late 1800's.

Fact is fact. You need to know them to deal credibly, especially in the Middle East/ Southwest Asia discussion. Lots of smoke and mirrors has been fed to us by an MSM who does not want us to know any different, or better. The EE and MSM wants you to think all those hideous, smelly Camel Jockeys Hate Us Because of Our Freedoms. Now how f*cking stooopid is that?

No ya sillies: if they "hate" us, it's because long ago, we stole theirs. Check your history books, it's all right there.

One cuts through fog of disinformation with historical facts. Know a bit of key history, and the scumbags won't be able to pull the wool quite so easily...

​I didn't think he was disparaging them. Their contributions in Afghanistan are appreciated. My son-in-law's experience of them in Iraq left him very favorably impressed (much less so his experience of the Italians, tho they ate well!).

No, it's Her Majesty's government that won't do squat. No repeating of Blair's bellicosity, dontcha know!

YUM YUM EAT UM UP

Alas as we line up the eager sheep for the shearing. Now we enter another self induced time for our military industrial complex to profit handsomely. As usual we seem oblivious to the tried and trued tactics that are used not only in the geopolitical arena but in our own domestic terrorism. Yawn......time to pull the flags out I guess and place them in my yard in the appropriate places for appropriate PTB PC. Those pesky Iranians could be landing on our shores any moment.....this is just too easy.

MF Global $$ at JPMorgue in England?

Money Found in Britain May Belong to MF Global

By BEN PROTESS and AZAM AHMED


About $200 million in customer money that vanished from MF Global is believed to have surfaced at JPMorgan Chase in Britain, according to people briefed on the matter. The discovery could be the most significant breakthrough in a monthlong hunt for the missing funds.

During MF Global’s last chaotic days, the brokerage firm overdrew an account at JPMorgan, according to another person who is close to the matter. Some investigators now believe the firm used customer funds to patch at least some of the hole, which would have been a significant breach of federal law.

MF Global transferred the roughly $200 million in the days before the firm filed for bankruptcy, said the people, who requested anonymity because the investigation was incomplete.
