So when my president, Barack Obama, goes all the way to Australia and pronounces that America will send 2,500 marines to their continent, I say, what? WE are the ones exacerbating any peace in Asia. Mr. President, how can you do this??? You think the Military Industrial Complex has anything to do with this provocation? We were warned half a century ago by President Dwight Eisenhower.
My posting on 11June2011:
BRING ALL OUR TROOPS HOME, NOW
suggests we do just the opposite. To quote:
The Dow Jones Industrials fell 135 to 11,771, but the is still 1.67% above the beginning of the calendar year. Save for Japan, most world markets also fell. Gold sunk $32/toz to $1722. If some of you are disappointed that the $2000/toz figure will not be met this year, just remember that the price was only a little above $1300/toz when the year began. Oil prices fell today, but it is interesting that the difference between the Brent Spot ($108/barrel) and WTI Future ($99/barrel) is now only $9/barrel. This disparity almost reached $30/barrel only a month ago. Indications are that the White House delay on the Canadian pipe could reverse this difference early next year.
