On the macro front, as the United States position their fleet to aggress Iran, Ahmadinejad predicts the downfall of Israel. Israel has previously threatened Iran of course, though they have now issued a decree that they have no intention of attacking Iran – has Bush decided to do the dirty work on Iran and told the Israelis to back off or is a US attack on Iran off the agenda for the time being?
Russia is sounding supportive of Iran – they don’t want their trade and investments disrupted. Russia holds the key to the EU energy supply. Iran continues to make negotiation noises about its nuclear enrichment program – treading a very clever fine line. From what’s coming out of the Israeli media, one can tell easily how much Netanyahu and his neozionists really want to whack Iran. The thing is, Iran haven’t invaded anyone for a couple of hundred years – unlike the Israelis who are constantly whacking their neighbours. And the apartheid land thief zealots continue and will continue to reap what they sow until they compensate those they have dispossessed, whose fury foments with the ongoing crimes perpetrated upon them by the unrestrained Israeli regime. Given the comparative lack of support amongst Democrat voters for Israel, the Zionista will be pulling out all stops to keep the Bushista in power.
Bush continues to mouth ‘we are staying the course’ in Iraq as the civil war there rages. He denies the findings of John Hopkins Uni (a very conservative establishment) on the astronomical number of Iraqi civilian deaths resultant from the illegal invasion by the Coalition of the Killing.
Would an attack of Iran take the heat off Bush’s Iraq failure, or will an artificially high DOW and vacuous noises from Bernanke keep the US consumers placated sufficiently for a Bush success in the Congressionals? or will unaccountable Diebold do the job if all else fails?
Will the US neocons aka the PPT in collusion with the Bush buddies, the Saudis, further depress the POO prior to the elections to keep inflating the DOW and deflating the POG? The Bundesbank reveals they were cajoled recently by the Central Banks to flog gold but they resisted.
