Response from Dangertime:

"My virtual account is so strong, because I BUY THE GREEN LIGHT BITCHEZ, and SELL THE RED LIGHT.  Some fools can't follow and buy red, but I know best.  Just look how I called the action in Silver:

 

------------------------------------
on Fri, 04/29/2011 - 08:20
Silver will break $50 next week and march possibly even to $60.
------------------------------------
on Mon, 04/25/2011 - 10:35
We will see $50 again but not likely for another year. 

------------------------------------

Time to short the euro again.

When Germany failed to make payment to France, the frenchies invaded the Ruhr.

Will Sarkozy invade Greece and Ireland now?

...When Germany failed to make payment to France, the frenchies invaded the Ruhr...

Now that is rewriting history....If the French had invaded the Ruhr...If the French had gone to help the Spanish Republicans during their civil war...they would not have been the French generation and their sons who had been bled dry by the first world war...and also they were financially bankrupt...

You have a fertile mind to imagine the French eating in Frankfurt in 1936...whereas it was the Germans who were eating in Paris in 1940, in reality!

Um.. my second post, but...

The Occupation of the Ruhr between 1923 and 1925, by troops from France and Belgium, was a response to the failure of the German Weimar Republic under Chancellor Cuno to pay reparations in the aftermath of World War I.

So yes, technically the comment was correct. Remember, Germany was banned from having an army at this point. The Ruhr being the industrial / coal base of Germany at the time.

my apologies ....I was focussed on Germany's remilitarization of Ruhr in 1936 which created a furious debate in France...as it transgressed the Versailles treaty. France had evacuated the Ruhr in 1930. But the thread referred to the previous incursion of France into Germany as response to default as allowed by  the Versailles treaty. My fault.

You history is a little weak.  The French invasion of the Ruhr (temporary) was one of the factors in the downfall of the Wiemar republic (They began to print money to pay the war reparations), and the rise of Hitler.

It's called "Libya."  And "they have been invaded"...and, interestingly "doing some invading themselves."

But in Europe they use the Euro which keeps going up no matter what, so why would you short the Euro?

You might as well short Silver as well, Don Quijote!

bothsidesnow's picture

Short the euro, heresy I say, that would be good for the dollar, and oops bad for PM's.

Smart money milked the last out of gold today, silver has already turned.

Yes please short the euro, it's the same as shorting PM's.

Another bailout is a coming.

LaLiLuLeLo's picture

I was in Germany two years ago and they were wholly pissed of being pissed on. Can't imagine what they're thinking right now

lolmao500's picture

If Merkel wasn't a sellout, she would have withdrawn Germany from the Euro go back to the Deustchmark and tell Europe to f*** off.

Then of course the bankers would have been pissed and WW3 would have started.

They, Like Americans, are pussies that will do nothing in the end except for bah bah at their leaders and their banks as they bleed the population dry.

Yep. Deep vaults here in Germany, though.

Yep - time to raid another government treasury in order to call for liquidation of everything, including air, water, earth, and fire.

What a bunch of horseshit.

That should be good for +100 on the Dow Jones on Pump Monday.

Corporate profits + rampant deficit spending + quantitative easing => nothing else matters

May explain why cable is on the up  -- royal cross heading lower and euro weak vs dollar.

Fundies would not support this sterling "strength".

Ah well -- it's an ill, wind etc....

Aah, the rotten smell of the european ponzi scheme is getting stronger by day. And it was just 2 days ago when the high priest of the european cleptocracy Mr Rehn was "not interfering" in national politics and told the people of Finland that all these bailouts have nothing to do with saving european banks and that Finland HAS to do the "responsible" thing and play ball with the Masters of the Universe (EU, IMF).

    Okay, that's it. I just restarted our old Panther tank in the backyard and I will invade Greece now...dammit 

    PY-129-20's picture

    First stop: Frankfurt - ECB. Second stop: Deutsche Bank building. After that gas prices won't make it possible to travel any further. Panther vs. Deutsche Bank. Huzzah!

    It is Panzer, not panther. Panther is an animal that lives in the wild.

    I'll bet it's "badly recieved."  But whether the banksters are screaming into the cell phones or curling up in the fetal position sucking their thumbs on the Bernank's/Trichet's office floor,  WE AREN"T BAILING THEM OUT AGAIN!!!!!

    (Ahhh, who am I f***n' kidding.  Of course we are.  Buy more PMs.)

    And people wonder why I am long $US and (short-term) Treasuries. The flight to safety Will come, just a question of when.

    Re-Discovery's picture

    Yes.  I do wonder.  You might want to check the Webster's definition of 'safety'.

    Cindy_Dies_In_The_End's picture

    Well, if they go down we follow close behind, most of our bail out money went to bail out foreign countries. You MIGHT get a short ride up, but then you will get whack-a-moled, IMO

    And what happens when investors find their common sense and instead of buying US dollars buy gold/silver? THEN YOU'RE SCREWED!

    FeralSerf's picture

    Soon the only gold/silver to be found will be the paper variety, but there should be plenty of that available.  It won't make much difference then whether they're dollars, euros, or paper ounces.  Toilet paper by any other name is still ......
