Why we are heading for WAR..follow the $$$


news.xinhuanet.com

BEIJING, Nov. 26 (Xinhua) -- China opposes any military acts in its exclusive economic zone without permission, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Friday, days before a joint military exercise between United States and Republic of Korea (ROK) on the Yellow Sea.

"We hold a consistent and clear-cut stance on the issue. We oppose any party to take any military acts in our exclusive economic zone without permission," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said in a statement Friday.

It's important to understand that the average American will no longer be swayed, manipulated, or persuaded into believing that war is a solution to any issues that may arise with foreign countries. Research and past disclosures have found that the usual reason for war is not about freeing the opressed, bringing justice, or bringing freedom to a region. It doesn't make sense to "free" people by taking away someone else's liberties, basic alienable rights, and freedoms.


Earlier this week articles all over the web reported that China and Russia had dropped the dollar to settle bilateral trade. They would instead use their own currency, the yuan and the ruble. Of course this news was missing from most of the US, mainstream, media outlets.See links below for full articles


This bold move by two of the worlds biggest economies sends a message that the dollar is no longer as powerful or as strong as it once was. This lack of confidence could lead not only to further changes in the dollar by these two countries, but could also lead other countries to jump on the bandwagon. Wouldn't that be a sight to see.But alas, we did not see a change in the markets, no drops, maybe some one could enlighten us as to why this is so.

Nevertheless, the US did not spend any time in figuring out a way to show China and Russi exactly how hurt it was to be betrayed and all of a sudden there seems to be some missiles fired in North and South Korea. Both countries blaming each other for pulling the trigger first. But does it even matter who started it??? Not to US. They now have an excuse to be right in the middle of China's trade and economic zone: see link

So this answers the question of why the US is now taking sides and preparing for to war with Korea. The true question is: Have the people seen enough the US militaries bully tactics and will they be able to keep their government from heading to war? Can they?

And a bonus observation of the gold curve is the Gold February contract, where in the last minute someone bought 2k contracts, which represents 200,000 ounces or about $272MM worth of gold. Not a bad purchase for the last trade on the slowest day of the year.

Yesterday someone bought $272MM worth of gold????

You didn't see a change in the markets in an obvious, direct reaction to that news because it was already factored in.

It wasn't surprise, in fact the only somewhat surprising thing is that it took so long. The markets across the world had already seen this as a very likely occurrence and had already adjusted in anticipation.

The idea of investing in any of the markets, currency, commodity, stock, whatever, is to benefit from (or protect yourself from) future events.

So, what about the North Koreans in all this?

Is this SOLELY the US's fault, acting the agressor?

What is it that South Korea is so greedy for, that they are willing to risk the future of their state, by hacking off a neighbor with nukes (NK) and a huge big brother (China)?

Does south Korea seriously need to prop up the dollar by putting their villages under incoming mortars that have mostly accidentally fallen out of peace-loving communist launch-tubes?

What about the North Koreans? I would think they'd fit right into the "hate America first" stance. And they are the perfect martyrs. I mean, all that the Kims are trying to accomplish is to find the peasants enough sawdust and treebark to eat this winter, until they can complete a multi-stage rocket capable of reaching Seattle.

How did Uncle Sam manage to trick them into so conveniently looking like sinister tyrants hell-bent on global dominiation?

Yes, follow the $$$ but these dollars wont be for the economy, theyll line a few select MAJOR corporations with ongoing big FAT no bid contracts, Halliburton, Xe, Dyncorp etc..

I know some people have the misconception that wars are good for the economy because WW2 helped propel the US out of the depression.
Why is that? Because Americans infrastructure was completely untouched, unlike pretty much the rest of the world and the factories pumped out orders to everyone else whos factories had yet to be rebuilt.

No other war weve been in has been positive for our economy, if anything, theyve affected it negatively.
