Wed., Aug.9, 7:04 am EST. Well, the whole N. Korea mess is giving us a ‘raise,’ but I’d gladly give it back, if it would just go away! Looks like stocks will continue to take a hit, and the metals are being their typical safe-haven. And, what are we going to get? A nuclear exchange? Nah. Our capability is so much greater, more vast. We’ve no doubt been working on co-ordinates and establishing targets for a very long time, and allocating the appropriate conventional weaponry towards each one. I remember when we unleashed on Saddam one Wednesday night in January of ’91 on live TV! If it comes to a strike, it will be just as the Prez described yesterday… and they’ll never know what hit them!
If anything like this should unfold, we’re going to get a tremendous increase in the metals, but it’ll likely be brief. I would sell a lot into that, and buy back as things were settling down, and a price collapse was taking place.
China and Russia would love to watch… just to see what we’ve got, and how effectively we could use it.
