Obama To Sell $10 Billion In Weapons To Israel, Saudi Arabia And The UAE





Having been denied the ability to control guns by the democratically-controlled Senate last Wednesday in the biggest slap to the administration's face in a long time, Obama decided promptly to put as many guns as he possibly can in the hands of US soldiers and various non-Americans. First, it was the announcement that Obama would send more troops to Jordan to prepare for "stability operations" which is a euphemism for Syrian rebel support (much of it controlled by the otherwise dreaded Al Qaeda), and now we learn that Obama is set to announce the sale of $10 billion worth of weapons to Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. It appears that Obama, like a true expert of Sun Tzu, is well aware that the only way forward to a Nobel prize winning global peace, is under the barrel of a gun, or on the receiving end of a hot AGM-65 Maverick missile.

Credit Supply Meets Unknown Demand





We have long discussed the colossal maturities pending among the state-sponsored FDIC-backed TLGP bonds due over the next few months but adding the financials exposure to other investment grade corporate bonds shows some incredible supply is pending. Bloomberg noted the fourth quarter alone has over $200bn coming due - based on a search of their database.

Tunisia Wants Its Gold Back, Issues International Arrest Warrant For Runaway President Ben Ali





Even as the situation in Tunisia continues deteriorating broadly, the country realizes that it needs its shiny assets back, and needs them fast, regardless of edibility or recent market corrections. As such it has just issued an international arrest warrant for deposed president Ben Ali. From the BBC: "Mr Chebbi said Mr Ben Ali should be tried for property theft and transferring foreign currency." We can't repeat enough: any dictatorial or Hewlett Packardian banana republic should make sure all of its gold is secure. In fact, since we are positive all of the gold, pardon, tungsten held at Ft. Knox is right there, it may be a good idea to put tracker beacons in the fake material. We are confident that sooner or later it will lead the broader population to not only the Textron vehicle used for one way transit, but to which non-extradition countries will soon be hosting our very own versions of the Tunisian President.
