Looks like it could be time to go 100% short everything.   They want a correction. The CBs always get what they want.

No, everything is fine. The next move will be to bring democracy to Libya and then to Iran & Saud.

Then all our democratic friends will share their oil with us at discount prices.

NATO will not stand idly by, so they're going into Libya. Considering that there's no oil or riches in Somalia, I guess the Somalians don't deserve "democracy".

Could easily go horribly wrong overnite IMO. Hillary and Gates running the 'war with no plan', the 'We Gotta Do Somethin' war. Imagine oil prices when 400 marines are killed or captured for another Iran hostage situation. Not to mention pouring gas on the muslim bonfire...seriously what are these people thinking?

No boots on ground.  The rebels don't want us there, but they do want to cop some air power.  Special forces and drones.  Gates stuck around for a reason; he knew the bozos running the show needed adult supervision.  

UN or NATO will come in later and pick up the pieces.

All very true.

However I think they are probably planning a no-fly zone, and then let the (Libyan) grunts on the ground do the wet work. Maybe at the end drop a few daisy cutters to smoke Moammar out of whatever hole he digs for himself.

SD-i, these people are thinking... so far so good, allaccording to plan.

These seeds (dictators) were planted a long time ago.

Look at Babt Doc, hsi dad and haiti. it was stunningly kitchy, how they brought baby doc to face justice, 30 years on, statute of limitations gone, haiti in post quake frenzy...

sudden cognitive dissonance....baby doc back and on trial?

Haiti trouble have been off the news since.

So far so according to script.

We all have to remember, ordo Ab Chao (order out of chaos) will only follow ordo Ad Chao (chaos out of order).

What we are currently witnessing is nowhere near planetary chaos, which, I believe, is the goal.

Is it a sneaky little type like in New York City or the giant Palmetto bugs (that fly) like the ones in the south?  Washington might be on the border of both territories.  In my NYC apartment they used to sneak into the microwave.  30 seconds on high sounded like a bag of jiffy pop.

You shouldn't be eating that garbage from the microwave.  Burning microwave popcorn'll kill ya.  It is simple to make on the stovetop or with an air popper.  Plus you get way more popped kernels and it doesn't go stale in 4 minutes.
