I wouldn't go that far.  I'm sure all of this will calm down in a few days and we'll be on our way to DOW 13,000.  These riots are simple not sustainable.  The people will come to their senses and realize the best options are the ones presented to them by the status quo.

I tend to agree with you Mr. Wanger.  I think there will be a slight detour soon to the dow 13000 hypothesis, but I think it is inevitable this year.  What I think doesn't matter though.  The charts rule so let's see what the next month brings us.

People are angry with the government because they can not afford to buy food, not because of some religious or political reason.

Well, it's a phrase incorrectly attributed to Marie Antoinette, supposed to indicate how far away from reality she was, when confronted with the fact that the peasants were starving.

What Harry conveniently ignores is the angle of inflation. If he thinks starving populations will just "accept the regime as before" despite starving, then it really shows how utterly disconnected from reality he truly is.

Ashamedly, this is my first post in response to a "Wanger". The fact that he/she equates civil unrest and revolution in the middle east with "Dow 13,000" should make it glaringly obvious that he is trolling.

If I had been raped by a dictator for 30 years, was getting hungry, unemployed, and pretty much saw no hope for my country, the last thing on my mind would be the day-to-day share price of IBM.

Even hungry they still have their pride.  Look at how, even in the chaos, they are protecting their patrimony by preventing the looting of antiquities from the museums.

yeah revolutions have a way of causing hangover and remorse.  You know how you feel when you wake up with a headache with a skank in your bed and you gotta be a gentlemen and at least buy her breakfast and give her cab fare?  yeah that feeling.

P.S.  I love you Harry, but there might be a less douchey way to say that last sentence.  However the general way these play out is the riots peter out and compromises occur with a little extra government spending and debt to give the little people their subsidies and make them think they won something.

Yelled Harry as he stood on his seat.  The theatre was burning down, and Harry wanted to watch the film.

"I paid good monie for this experience," he muttered under his breathe.

HairyWanger--I thought I was supposed to get long Friday afternoon and that

it 'would blow over during weekend'? Because of your name I assumed you knew a lot

about blowing so I followed your advice. Where do I forward a claim for my losses? I

think you need a shave.

Saudi has 322.9 tons of gold, mostly stored at the Comex....what a bunch of idiots what did they think was gonna happen???


This will be known as the great fulfillment of the  Islamic revolution, but It is actually the greatest robbery of all time. House of Saud is done...


.now if we can just keep them from lighting the oil wells on fire before the hungry masses are allowed to devour them...

Of course you knew that the Saudis have always been prepared to exit. And, all the crude infrastructure is prepared to self-destruct. Like the WTC.

Self-destruct does not necessarily mean "blown-up". Sea water has a deleterious effect on a producing well...

Coming ever closer to the moment when the people of western nations identiy themselves with what they're doing in Egypt and take to the streets to demand an end to the bailouts, the debt and the monetary slavery.

Americans will only engage in civil insurrection if they become hungry enough. Interesting that the phrase "food riot" is becoming more prevalent in MSM world news stories.

It's like they knew that it was going to happen.

4 month ago, all the borders where closed down for immigrants and it's much harder now to get papers.

Sicilia and Gibraltar are like a fortress right now.

They won't come in.

The only reason why they could come in was political. And now their governments have fallen...

There will even be a lot of them that will be send back now their presidents have scipped town.

I'm starting to wonder if this is not some "big plan"...export inflation, take on as much debt as possible (U.S.), start the natives in the ME rioting, leading to eventual war, kill off about 1/3-1/2 of the world's population (easier for TPTB to control fewer sheep), then restructure all finance and start the NWO.  Just a thought.

There ARE such ideas out there.

I believe one name is Michael Ruppert, and if I remember correctly he is one of those who wants the world population to go down to 500 million - 1 billion.  Hmm, who decides?


ANYONE here at ZH who knows about these plans (and if Al Gore is one of these guys), well inquiring minds want to know!

If this whole "Plan" is anything more than a tiny fringey thing, it is important to know.

Michael Ruppert is a peak oilist. And not one of the centrist ones, one of the out-there Olduvai theory pushing ones. But he doesn't want to shrink the population to 500m, he just thinks it's inevitable.
