Guest Post: We’re Not In (Ar)Kansas Anymore, Hillary!





The Obama Administration believes military action will send a powerful message.  In that, they are correct.  Where they are wrong is in what message it will send and in what way that message will elicit a response.  In much of the world where people share the religion common to much of Syria, the message will be:  America attacks yet another Moslem nation.  In the rest of the world, where governments have already declined participation in any message-sending action (except for the one exhibiting the quintessential Napoleon Complex), the message will be:  there they go again, doing something they would never want done to them, and demonstrating that they alone think they can decide what deaths constitute a moral obscenity and what constitute mere unfortunate collateral damage.

The Final Straw For SAC: Criminal Charges To Be Filed This Week





It would appear the camel's back of the career of Steve Cohen and his firm SAC Capital has received its last straw. As the WSJ reports, Federal prosecutors plan to bring criminal charges against the firm as early as this week. This spells trouble for SAC which, while still reeling from the SEC's attempt to effectively shut it down, will now have to fight a two front war; defending its key executives against criminal charges as well, including the risk of jail time for what is most likely going to be a securities fraud charge. While a disgraced Steve Cohen may, in theory, run his or whatever employees' he has left, money as a "family office", it would take a very strong wi-fi signal to do that from even a minimum security prison should he finally suffer Martha Stewart's fate.
