there is an abundance of light sweet crude!

there is an abundance of money on Wall Street (Trillions, $1.2 Trillion in secret loans to EVERYONE {including non-U.S. Companies!} except the dumbass Sheepish consumers who drive the engine)!

there are CUTS coming for Social Security! and every other FREE HAND OUT PROGRAM {$2.5 Trillion in reserves spent on making Wall Street some Quick Money}!

To give everyone a very easy way to understand what "We the People" are spending on Wall Street.

The Millitary Budget for the United States was cut from $500 Billion to $450 Billion.. *ish*

Wall Street SPENDS 10 times more than the Millitary fighting 5 Fucking wars..

The Millitary is Cheap!

Lets see how long Wall Street lasts now that they are robbing from the Millitary? I hope the Marines go in and just clean sweep the whole fucking City! Money well spent supporting the Troops! to defend America from Wall Street!

The Brent Spread is meaningful in that it has no historical equal.

But keep in mind it was over $10 before Libya hit the radar screen.

Also, there is no virtue in a shrinking spread if it shrinks via elevation of  WTI.

I agree with you about Vietnam and iraq. However we HAD to nuke Japan. If we did not we would have to invade Japan. Have you ever read the caluty figures for Operation Downfall? We would have lost 400,000-650,000 men. The Japanese were ready to fight to the bitter end. First, the Japanese were not only training everyone 15-50 years old to fight, they converted schools into "military bases" where kids were trained to put on explosive backpacks and jump under enemy tanks. the Japanese casulty figures rand from 7-15 million dead,not to mention disease,famine that comes after an invasion.So the bullshit that people say that dropping two nukes into Japan was wrong needs to stop. The alternative would have been a longer Pacific war lasting into '47.

Is the litmus test for nuking another country the likelihood that the other country will/would fight to the bitter end?  If country A, let's say a nuclear armed Pakistan, finds itself at war with the US, but suspects that they either can't win, or that the cost of winning the war would be a half million Pakistani’s, do you then green light them to drop nukes on the US?  Serious question.

Rick64's picture

 Yes that Gaddafi was a mad man. He wasn't paying interest to a privately owned central bank or taking out loans. Printing your own money OMG that is the craziest shit I ever heard. 

   The CBL (Central Bank of Libya) is currently a 100% state owned entity and represents the monetary authority in The Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya. The financial structure and general operation procedures of a state bank is of course much different than that of an American or European based central bank. Form starters it is not privately owned, for-profit bank with a undisclosed list of private shareholders like the US Federal Reserve and the Bank of England are. Libyan constitutional law establishing the CBL stipulates that its central bank maintains monetary stability in Libya and promotes sustained growth of its national economy. Libya also holds more bullion as a proportion of gross domestic product than any country except Lebanon, according to the London-based World Gold Council using January data from the International Monetary Fund. The value of gold is based on the March 25 close of $1,429.74 an ounce.

Currently, the Libyan government creates its own money, the Libyan Dinar, through the facilities of its own central bank. Few can argue that Libya is a sovereign nation with its own great resources, able to sustain its own economic destiny. One major problem for globalist banking cartels is that in order to do business with Libya, they must go through the Libyan Central Bank and its national currency, a place where they have absolutely zero dominion or power-broking ability.

I will also point out that in recent days NATO abandoned all pretense of protecting civilians.

They radioed to the rebel forces just what Gadaffi forces were ahead of them and then bombed those forces.  They were not protecting civilians.  They were bombing purely defensive positions.

NPR sadly lost all creditibility last year.  Probably centered around financial support with the concept being "shut the fuck up, or go off the air."  Like any business, the decision wasn't too hard.

In my opinion, journalists are quickly becoming ranked right up there with financial elite and shameless politicians.  Of course, this is also part of the plan to distract... to deflect anger away from the central banking ponzi scheme.   So, I guess in some sort of twisted way it is fitting the journalist and politicians are stupidly playing right into the trap.

They lost any shred of credibility during the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings when Nina Totenburg went from reporter to active participant. They've only gotten worse since then and now with Soros closing the loop on all the progressive media outlets they again ratchet up still another notch vis-avis his backdoor donations to hire political "reporters". Bad enough NPR uses his stooges from the Center for American Progress all too frequently, they now include paid schills.

I never considered the appropriateness of the word "feed" before.

OT  Look who will head the S&P rating agency. 

Doug Peterson is currently the Chief Operating Officer of Citibank, N.A., Citigroup's principal banking entity that operates in over 100 countries. Doug has been with Citigroup for 25 years

From Bloomberg article

Damage Control In Japan

A scandal involving Citi's private bank has the giant scrambling to make repairs

Douglas Peterson was attending a business dinner at a Tokyo restaurant early last September when he received an urgent call on his mobile phone -- one he had been expecting since he was appointed head of Citigroup's (C ) Japan operations three months earlier. Unable to extract himself from the dinner, he met the caller, a Citi staff member, in the restaurant bar. The news was grim. Japan's Financial Services Agency, which had been investigating alleged improprieties at the bank for months, had come to a decision. It would terminate Citigroup's (C ) private banking operations in the country, a shocking setback for the biggest and oldest foreign-owned bank in Japan.

Two weeks later the formal decision was handed down to close the private bank, a bitter pill that Citigroup recently disclosed cost it $244 million in the fourth quarter alone. Peterson, who is CEO Chuck Prince's hand-picked troubleshooter in Japan, has been scrambling ever since to pick up the pieces. Job No. 1 has been bowing and scraping to FSA officials and other Japanese regulators

We can expect more bowing and scraping from Douglas in the near future.

All you need to know is that Germany "respectfully" declined to engage in this effort.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice..

Just how did these rebels get the funding for their weapons and equipment?

Same as it ever was.

The Gold price is dropping rapidly: the JPM mercenaries (i.e. "rebels") must have secured Libia's Gold in order to pay Chavez...

“Yes, he is in Tripoli, he is alive and well and we are winning,” he said. “The rebels have been lured into a trap and we will crush them." --Saif al Islam  The rebels went into the city, and then they promptly left.  Gee, could they have been lured in and counter attacked?  Don't believe the bullshit you hear on the MSM.

So boooring...

The London Riots were so much more interesting and exciting.

also great coverage on main stream media,

with live comments from the elite representatives of the British Empire.

very interesting and historically significant I thought ! ( but no live feed on ZH )

After all it's not every day one sees an Empire fall...

Totally Fake Footage!  I saw the movie Capricorn 1, which showed how they faked the Moon Landing.  I bet this footage was shot on the moon, where they have built a fake mockup of Libya!

As the Rebels close in Ghadafi's Death compound Libyian Rebel Leader Admiral Ackbar shouts: "It's a Trap!".

Imperial Libyian storm troops quickly encircle the rebels. Ghadafi orders his miltary forces to prevent the rebels from fleeing while he unleashed the full power of his fully operational death compound!

 Libyans get ready for the multinationals, bankers, IMF, World Bank, USAID, and all the others that are coming to rape your country.  What you don't have any debt? Well lets get you a loan from the IMF for some infrastructure programs, and we know just the companies that can build them. Its going to be expensive, but you will have prosperity and modernization until you have to start paying back those loans.  What you can't pay back the loans that were backed by gold ? We will need you to turn over the gold, privatize some of your resources, impose higher interest rates, lower wages, higher taxes as part of the requirements for the debt to be rolled over.  The same old game. American Democracy enjoy.
