From the Puck T. Smith archives, just this simple video.

Puck posted this to his blogspot site on July 26, 2011. Nothing has since changed and, two years later, the video is still relevant, particularly in light of the impending increase of hostilities in Syria.

Very well done video

But the bit trying to blame WWI on leaving the gold standard is just bizarre. Countries temporarily left the gold standard because of the war, not vice versa, and only because it's a funding source of last resort (or the least bad of several terrible last resorts). If Ron Paul himself were at Verdun it's not like he'd say 'sorry, mes amis, we're out of money so we'll just have to shoot off and let the krauts have at it'. It's war. You do what you have to do.

Fourth!

Is this it, or will there be a beatdown for the metals for the next 3 weeks? Who knows. It is going to be an interesting fall, that's for sure! Especially when I head out to help develop a small farm, and it would be nice to see the metals move on.

Iran Warns Against International Military Intervention in Syria

Iran Warns Against International Military Intervention in Syria

By Ladane Nasseri - Aug 24, 2013 9:54 AM ET

Iran’s foreign Ministry warned against any international military action in Syria, its long-time ally, saying that intervention would heighten regional tensions.

“There are no international authorizations for a military intervention in Syria,” foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Araghchi was quoted as saying today by the state-run Iranian Students' News Agency. “We warn against any moves or announcements that would result in further tensions in the region.”

Araghchi also questioned claims that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government used chemical weapons in an attack opposition groups say killed 1,300 people, saying “evidence”pointed to the fact that it had been carried out by “terrorist groups” with the aim to implicate the Syrian government. “The fact that they were used while UN inspectors were present is a sign that some hands are at work to accuse the Syrian government,” he said.

U.S. President Barack Obama is coming under increased pressure to intervene in Syria amid allegations of chemical arms use by Assad. In comments to reporters yesterday, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel indicated that U.S. military forces, including naval vessels, are positioned in the Mediterranean and ready to act if the president calls on the Pentagon to strike at Syria.

“Provocative opinions by U.S. military officials or moves such as positioning war ships won’t help resolve the issue and will only endanger further the situation in the region,”Araghchi said.

Welcome Sawgrass ...

You picked a good place to start. It was an honor to know Puck for the short time he was here. A true gentleman. He is missed.

Now, it's time to go can some marinara as soon I get the eggplant out of the oven and get it vacuum bagged and into the freezer.
