No, No, No.   Belgium is a Red Herring.   I think I have the key here:

B - Bahrain

L - Libya

Y - Yemen

T - Tunisia

H - ????

E - Egypt


Now, what starts with H, that could have a revolution, that would cause the whole house of cards to fall....

O-bomb-A has many options on the table now.  Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Jordan, Yemen, Syria, Iran......Hmmmmmmm.  Wait until the PIIGS wake up again.  Maybe we can carpet bomb Europe for old times sake then.  Come on O-bomb-A, don't be such a pussy.

Hey, I have a new math formula for all ya'll -

I think the IMF needs to launder some fiat, so funding both sides of the operations should work out fine. 

All this time I thought SDR meant special drawing rights.  Little did I know it meant Stupid Democrats and Republicans.

"Not enough oil in Syria to make it worth his while."

No, but there's some SUH-WEET pipeline infrastructure running through that country, straight from the rich oil fields of Northern Iraq.

A lot of players could benefit from the fall of Assad.

Bashar al-Assad -- a chip off the old block ? We shall soon see. Pops Hafez would have responded more in the fashion of Khadaffi, as the Old Guard brooked no dissent.

Why does the USA feel obligated to drop its black swan crap load every where? Is it written in the Constitution? "Thou shalt drop thy load at the tip of a sailor's hat or the nod of a one eyed dolt...don't forget to take your Colt...'cos you're son of Duke the nuke..."

Doooooook Noooookem!

hey Falak, since you brought it up last time, do note,

Syria, 33rd parallel....bloodshed. The 33rd will not be denied.

Someone suggested i was fitting facts to a fantasy to find a pattern.

I say the pattern is slapping us in the face. By the way, Iraq's no-fly zone from 1991 was enforced at? Youuuuu got it, the 33rd parallel.

bomb's away, colt's away....

You are a bull's eye man...I can see that. I wonder what magic longitude corresponds to your great 33° discovery. Your supernova star was heading diagonally if my memory is right. I wrote a book once about the Holy land; a novel about  the Crusades, and my hero lived on the current lebanese/ Israeli border, just south of old Tyre. I wonder where that lies with reference to the magic latitude...will check...so fire away Hawk Eye of India. Namaste!

yes, it was diagonal. But then these are twisted times. The cross is thusly twisted too.

What is your Novel's name?

By the way, Tyre co-ordinates... 33 16 8 N/ 35 12 59 E

Right on the 33rd.

Did it have a lot of bloodshed?

The name is Sidi Kafir. It's the first of a trilogy. Family saga. About GWB's ancestors of the middle ages...clash of civilization and emergence of commercial capitalism in Europe (silk/spice routes).

Man, he fought the Templars, christian ethnic cleansers, to defend the muslim peasants working on his vineyard going on Haj, then he fought Saladin's army when Jerusalem collapsed and the Saracens besieged Tyre. So he had no favorites. That's why he was my hero! My humble contribution to war and peace..

One of the requirements for a sustainable US economic recovery (markets) is for one new black swan to land every day.  Just turn on CNBC and "buy" what they tell you to. 

When Biden said, "Recovery Summer!" he meant 2011.  It's all good.
