Oil, gold and silver all dropped sharply in early Monday trading on the news of Obama’s victory but rose again on a sharp decline in the USD but that was reversed again in overnight trading in Asia. Yeah, things are unstable. Traders are unsure what to make of Obama. His success in taking down al Qaeda’s leader under the nose of the Pakistani military. They must have know he was hiding in their own gated retirement community and this kind of bold action indicates Obama is definitely not playing by the old rules.
Much of the strategy of world domination by the trans-national corporations had been built on the assumption that the war was never ending. The previous administration had made no attempt to eliminate their major “boogieman” but instead simply used Osama Bin Laden to further corporate interests. To keep up appearances they would occasionally kill that number three guy. Obama has now done something completely unexpected, he kept his word.
This has to make certain interests wonder what other promised but unexpected things Obama might do in the future. The President now has the kind of political capital and international prestige that only the voices in George Bush’s head thought that he had. Donald Trump hears those same voices but his show was preempted for the real President.
Not that this means that we are out of the woods, we are so deep in the dark forest that the moss grows on all sides of the trees. But we now have a President willing to take risks and make them pay off. Helicopter raids are notoriously bad for a President if they go wrong (Carter + Iran hostages = Reagan). The safe bet would have been B-2 bombers but Obama put his political future second to the big payoff to the country. A confirmed kill, no civilian casualties and no Americans lost make all the right kind of headlines.
The question is how will Obama use all of this new capital? The markets seem to think he will use it for something. www.prairie2.com
