Netanyahu Spokesman Says War May Break Out Between Israel And Gaza As Early As Tonight

Or, more metaphorically, the proverbial flame in a fireworks store. Surely this last straw will send the S&P limit [up|down] until someone has the brilliant idea that Bernanke can print his way out of that one as well.

More as we see it.
