Repeat after me - "we bombed Libya to protect the Libyan people".....if you say it often enough it will make you feel better when you go to gas pump.

From PressTV.ir

The United States has sent some 12,000 soldiers to Libya, in the first phase of deployments to the oil-rich North African nation.

According to Asharq Alawsat, the troops landed in the eastern oil port city of Brega.

Although the deployment is said to be aimed at generating stability and security in the region, the troops are expected to take control of the country's key oil fields and strategic ports.

Brega, the site of an important oil refinery, serves as a major export hub for Libyan oil. The town is also one of the five oil terminals in the eastern half of the country.

Following the popular uprising of the Libyan people, NATO launched a major air campaign against the forces of the former regime on March 19, 2011 under a UN mandate to “protect the Libyan population.”.....read more

Currency Wars - Iran Banned From Trading Gold and Silver

From Goldcore.com

Gold jumped to its highest in more than a month as result of the uncertainty over of the Greek debt outcome and the growing geopolitical tensions with Iran and the US and NATO countries.

The Iranian geopolitical tension is supporting gold as Britain, America and France have delivered a clear message to Iran, sending six warships led by a 100,000 ton aircraft carrier through the highly sensitive Strait of Hormuz.

Reuters report that the EU has agreed to freeze the assets of the Iranian central bank and ban all trade in gold and other precious metals with the Iranian Central Bank and other public bodies in Iran.

According to IMF data, at the last official count (in 1996), Iran had reserves of just over 168 tonnes of gold. The FT reported in March 2011 that Iran has bought large amounts of bullion on the international market to diversify away from the dollar, citing a senior Bank of England official.

Currency wars continue and are deepening.

A study in mass psychology

An amazing video of the group mind as was being discussed by James Dines in a earlier post. This is a perfect analogy to the silver bull market. A few nutters ignoring what others thought and started buying silver at US$4/oz then a few others join them at $8, then a few more at $15, and so on, then half of the rest of the crowd joins in when we get to $100, then everyone parties at $500 - $1,000/oz. Dorothy can you dance in those silver slippers?
