Not in the Air Force. They have a highly tuned group of jesus crusaders ready to kill the world because ol' jeez says its okay.

Wonder what is worse?

I think I'm reading Animal Farm

Pigs? People? Gangs? jesus Crusaders? Banksters?


They all look the same to a lesser farm animal  like me.

More importantly this is no different than:

-Goldman Sach's Gang infiltrating & corrupting the Treasury & Fed Reserve
-Xe (aka - Blackwater) infiltrating & corrupting top levels of military decision making
- Koch Brothers & other Oil interests infiltrating & corrupting the EPA enforcement system
- Top Lobbyist & political party big wigs/rackeeters infiltrating & corrupting the Supreme Courts decision making to allow rampant corporatism.

Sorry, but the street gangs in the military likely damages is small peanuts compared to what the other criminal cartesl have done.

'ol jeez says it's OK'

Yeah, it's ol jeez's influence on the world that's running it into the ground. Nice sarc, (or nice retardation, can't tell which)

Just like the good old bad days.

Cue: George and the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

Oh.Bummer, sure you want to bring the boyz home?

The FBI's main goal is to protect and defend the United States, to uphold and enforce the criminal laws of the United States, and to provide leadership and criminal justice services to federal, state, municipal, and international agencies and partners. Thanks.

The game may continue as the can continues to get kicked down the road, but the last chart above contains an unavoidable and fundamental illustration of why the current EURUSD rally can be shorted to ultimate profits.

Smithovsky's picture

In a sane world that would be 100% true.  Unfortunately that word doesn't apply to most people in a seat of power on this planet.  Either US will print to bail Europe out and EURUSD will be at 1.8 in a year or two, or Europe will change law and will print.  I think the latter is less likely but not out of the question.  What's another 3T when your GDP is 16 (sarcasm, if not obvious).  And a bit of inflation is a bit easier to sell to the people at home than a total financial collapse.  Don't think we'll fall apart just yet, Germany knows it's much better off with EU intact and they'll bite the bullet and kick the can down the road for a few more years.  Not sure which effect will be greater in the eurusd in Europe-prints case, dilution or risk-on.  I agree with the above article about what should happen but shorting is just too obvious and the market doesn't do obvious, at least not until it extracts as much blood as possible.

thxs for the reply...but that's lame! WAHHHH!  WAHHH!

OldTrooper's picture

Maybe it isn't quite as lame as it would be if anyone off the street could post photos.  If I wanted crass ads, bad jokes and porn I'd turn on prime-time tv.

The debt is unpayable.

The fact this farce has gone on so long tells me:

1) Most "market participants" are unable to do simple math in an Excel Spreadsheet


2) There really are no "market participants" except trading computers who feed headlines into an algorithm

EUR at 1.43-1.5 will make  a fine short against the possibiltiy of lower PM and stock prices. Until then, expect a massive ramp, nut job. 


Hiwatt's picture

Europe's got no external imbalances, is rich and can afford to keep delaying solving its internal problems indefinitely. All this domino and doom talk is entertaining but in the end it's just plain cr*p...

Your graphics are too complicated.


Hey...who knows what happened after the -- BAY of PIIGS?

I've stolen that phrase for my next presentation...

When I see both Zerohedge and Krugman in agreement that the EU is f**cked beyond repair, I know it's going to be bad.


See his "Deck chairs/Titanic" post for some more hilarity.

Temporalist's picture

But Krugman is just happy because it's distracting from the U.S. problems.  If it's not the Euro it's aliens to him.

Total Global Debt Jubilee.


Total Global War.

Being slightly cynical, the morons who put us into this mess will never admit they were wrong, thus war it shall be.

I hope and pray that you are wrong.

I hope the world has a giant energy crysis sooner than later... you cant have long world wars without cheap energy.


FeralSerf's picture

You could have short, very expensive world wars instead.   They don't care if the proles don't get to eat.

deliciousirony's picture

plus they can make a nice buck off a big war.
