    And that is why the current Russia is in Chechnya & Georgia

    Engdahl piece - not credible.

    I was in that region (in Tbilisi) from 2000 to 2005. He weaves a conspiracy originating at RAND with factlets that support his radical-left conspiracy views. There are a lot of declarations in that...

    Nor does it concern me - short away!

    The total size of the precious metals market is just not that big and the same goes for the supply. That is one basic reason we went off the gold standard - our money supply needs were just too big....

    Been out of the US for a while - A bit of catchup.

    Backtracking to the Engdahl piece, I agree in substance with some of his economic material, however, his take on the "color revolutions" is false. Even more than military campaigns, intelligence...

    Yep. We have met the enemy and he is us.

    non-state as capable as the state
