While it’s too early to tell for sure, it appears as though the United States is slowly being backed into a position of having to go to war. Again… Bernanke spoke today, promising more QE (Quantitative Easing)
relief destruction, informing Wall Street that the Fed will be releasing an additional 40 billion dollars per month into the real estate markets, then to purchase Treasury bonds that nobody else will show up to bid on. China, India, Iran, Russia, S. Korea, Saudi Arabia, Japan, and others are lining up to formulate a new exchange currency. The days of the Petro-dollar are coming to an end. The new currency will be based on the gold standard. Something that will render our dollar almost worthless. Inflation will increase with the rise in interest rates. Bernanke, and the Fed, are firing the last of their ammo, in the hope (for whatever reason) that the Kenyan can snag another election victory. Do they have two months left? Will our economy hold up that long?
Then there is the Foreign Policy debacle taking place across the Middle East tonight. While Obama chastises Romney on his lack of experience in Foreign Policy the entire region is burning with solidarity of ‘Death to America’. Never mind that the Kenyan is nothing more than a Community Organizer. A representative to get your water turned back on. Assuming you are a black, living in Government housing in Chitown.
Hillary Clinton is mysteriously absent. Having made some insane comments regarding a spoof movie being responsible for the violence taking place at our embassies all across the Middle East. The silence on accepting responsibility is deafening. Clinton, no doubt, is having a hard time finding a new party to get drunk and dance at these days.
Meanwhile, the Ayatollahs in Iran keep turning up the pressure on Israel and Netanyahu wants American assurances. He’s not getting them. The Kenyan, being a somewhat in-devout Muslim, will meet instead with his wanna-be buddies in the Muslim Brotherhood. There is no one home on the bridge of the titanic. But Romney has no Foreign Policy experience.
America is rapidly finding herself boxed into an untenable position. Much like the one we painted Japan into prior to Pearl Harbor. The window is closing. Whether the Kenyan approves starting another war or not, the decision is being made. It won’t matter who is at the helm when this goes down.
All that remains is to find out when, and under what conditions we find ourselves. I’m personally betting that the economy, much to Bernanke and Geithner’s chagrin, will not hold until election time. However, if we encounter domestic uprisings, the result of this ME mess, expect crackdowns to be forthcoming. And even those could be the black swan events we have been expecting. We may never know.
