    Sanctions run the risk of strengthening the regime there imposed on by allowing it to crush dissent and blame it’s policy failures on them also makes the people more reliant on the state as well as making life hell for the people as shown by Iraq under Saddam and Albright’s quote that 500,000 dead where worth it

    @Stacy .. yes, nice article from ZH …

    absent manipulation, I think this would have been THE breakout above $1000 that everybody had been waiting for so long

    … as with any technical indicator, nothing is 100% guaranteed, but the golden cross usually signals a sustained phase of price rise

    … 3. Gold will rise and oil will fall

    My money is on the third outcome, and at some point on the second (when the helicopters really get going), but we shall see.

    … (what is meant is the dollar index or DXY really – a flawed and misleading indicator since it only measures relative rates of currency debasement)

    OTOH, the physical Gold market is in US$-size pretty small compared to the amount of Fiat-Money availble via the FED/USGovt.
    OK .. you may now say “Yes, that’s the whole point – Gold ist too cheap.
    But … JPM can throw all the Gold T/A out the window using it’s petty Fiat-Cash box any time it likes – which is what it has been doing for years IMO.
    OTOH, one cannot ignore the fact that the Gold price has risen 4x since ca. 200 … i.e. a gradual (longer-term) Fiat-Currency devaluation.

    The WW Market – as a whole – is bigger than any “one” central bank .. but the Gold market is still in comparison very small ; which makes it so easy to manipulate.

    The ZH article mentions that a geopolitical event might cause Gold to spike.
    The CNBC Talking Heads say Gold will probably stay around 1000$s for the next 4 years or so.

    BTW … that is why I want the FED audited and erased !

    http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/breaking/2009/0928/breaking2.htm

    Is anybody else hearing the propaganda on the radio about Iran and their missile launch? it’s relentless. Iran fears an attack so they are warning people not to attack them. These shills on the radio keep repeating the same bull; “Iran has secret nuclear facility”, “Iran may be capable of reaching Israel with missile”.

    No mention of their compliance with the Non-proliferation Act. I’m so sick of this bullshit war-mongering.

    Yes….. Let me tell you all about the article about the G20 meeting…….

    THE ARTICLE IS COMPLETE PROPOGANDA FROM THE OWNED AND “FRONT MAN” MEDIA ORGANIZATION OF THE MONEY CONTROLLING ENTITY SPEWING OUT ENDLESS BULLSHIT ……………….BLOOMBERG..

    The entire article is complete misdirection. The only sentence with truth is this one……

    To help ensure that happens, G-20 countries agreed to give the 186-member International Monetary Fund a role assessing their efforts.

    The primary purpose of this G20 meeting was to con the rest of the “G – force” into giving the IMF more power. You must understand the IMF is the “muscle” organization of the conglomerate controlling the money supply and they are in quest of its role becoming the new global “IRS”. They are accomplishing this in stellar fashion. Establishing this position of global power will in turn greatly accellerate their goal of establishing a new global currency and controlling it.

    You must understand…..THIS ENTIRE FIASCO IS FOR ONE SINGULAR PURPOSE.

    To establish a singular world currency through deliberate collapse and crisis. It is a one shot deal for the most powerful entity on the planet and they will let ABSOLUTELY NOTHING STAND IN THEIR WAY or allow failure from chance.
    Everything has been put into place years ago to prevent failure.
    Enough said…. research, you will find all the evidence you need to come to these undeniable facts.
