Israel isn’t escalating anything-it’s just pursuing a long standing policy-

In Syria, A Growing Strategic Threat to Israel — And Risk of Escalation


Background: Since 1974, Syria has remained an active enemy of the state of Israel, but one that can be predictably deterred from taking broad conventional action. This realization allowed Israel to maintain a semblance of stability along the countries’ shared border, but with the advent of the Syrian civil war, this began to change.

  • The initial developments of the Syrian civil war prompted Israel to seek a policy of limited intervention. With its longtime adversary in the Syrian government–backed by Iran and Hezbollah–on one side, and the rising dominance of jihadist militant groups present in the opposition, Israel did not have a faction to support.
  • Instead, it focused on securing its border along the Golan Heights to keep the Syrian conflict spilling over, a campaign that included active efforts to disrupt Hezbollah and Iranian entrenchment. In January 2015, Israel launched airstrikes against a convoy of Hezbollah militants and Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) officers – the paramilitary protectors of the 1979 Iranian revolution – who were travelling through the eastern Golan Heights. The strike reportedly killed an Iranian general who was part of the IRGC’s expeditionary Quds Force.
  • Aside from acting to protect its northern border, Israel also seeks to prevent Iran from gaining a strategic position in Syria via Hezbollah, as it has in southern Lebanon following its 2006 war with the Shia militant group. These efforts largely took the form of airstrikes in Syria against convoys and storage facilities of advanced weapons destined for Hezbollah’s Lebanon stronghold.
  • The intent of these selective measures is to inhibit Hezbollah from building its capacity to inflict damage deep within Israel and maintain the conventional military imbalance between Israeli forces and Hezbollah. An example is the potential proliferation of the Iran-manufactured, GPS-guided Raad missiles to Hezbollah, reported by Israeli media, which would significantly improve the group’s ability to attack strategic targets in Israel, a concern expressed to Israeli media by anonymous sources.

I mentioned before that I never made any money on Australian miners

Posted by overton @ 17:18 on April 14, 2018  

I was listening to this guy that just came back from a NOVO site tour and he talks about bulk sampling and that he’s got most of his money in NOVO.

The reason I didn’t make any $$ on my Aussie picks was that there was always some kind of mine design flaw…. probably because they hired an Australian Engineering firm and they knew they could make their $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ on the back end…. so give the Miner a low bid on building the mine.  It happens there all the time.  I even think CDE owned a new gold mine in Austrailia back in Internet 101 days and every qtr bad new$.

The NOVO attendee mentioned that they’ll never be able to bulk sample the entire area……………..that will be some HIGH intere$t financing

my money is still going to Quebec mining stocks where they get a 25% tax credit on exploration drilling

Mixing all the races together never made sense to me. Why mix all pure breed dogs and cats together to make one breed? It wouldn’t make any sense. Backwards. You fine tune plants vegetables and livestock development. And the people that promoted the mixing? They themselves probably don’t mix. They just want everyone else to. They want “uni” everything. Universal race sex country etc.

Not much time but all and all that’s not for us to figure out or micromanage. That’s for them to work out but seem highly resistant to change or at least the leaders because they need people to do their bidding so they can continue to live in luxury while they live in appalling conditions and some attempting to live in war torn buildings.
Remember when US was so different with different life styles, religion and beliefs? The East was different from the south, south different from north and north different from the Wild West.
There will be some that will barter goats some will use money.
For now many especially in places like Niger, Somalia and even some from the other eastern countries are not ready to assimilate in a civilized country. They bring their ways that cause suppression with them and worse, crime even crimes that would be crimes in their own country. Just the other day a immigrant from Nigeria killed a woman and her baby beheading the baby in a subway in Germany.

Goldilocks re your “They want normal things like a family, a life.”

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 12:53 on April 14, 2018  

A deer living in the woods is having a normal life. However, if in the long term future some kind of artificial means or ways, ahead of its natural time, enables the deer have a much better life, (too soon) like barns to live in, and being fed, and it encouraged more baby deer being born, and after a while the artificial means gradually stopped working, the good life would gradually end for many of the deer.

Re your…”How long are they supposed to wait?” That’s the problem. They didn’t wait long enough. Global integration, to create a global USA would have evolved naturally over 100-200-300 years, but after 1913, the printing press, loans, artificial money and fake currency exchange rates, almost, but failed, in 2008, to do it all in only ONE generation.

Re your “No jobs and poverty”? Now that the whole rigged system has problems, reversing the integration, and going back to separate independent nations, that produce their own needs and import ONLY what they don’t have, would be the opposite of global production efficiency which eliminates jobs. Efficiency is good if population is declining. Efficiency or higher productivity is good if it results in more leisure time off. But that never happened.

In fact we went backwards. Used to be 40 hours a week, now its 80 plus. The old idea sold to leaders, about consolidating global production may have made sense long ago, but now we see the results.

The whole system needs change. 🙂 They’ll probably just have to give a standard salary like Social Security Checks globally to people that want or need it to avoid “No jobs and poverty”.  They can also use tax incentives and the media and  to shame well off people out of or free up jobs they don’t really need .

We need to hear solutions and ideas. Not what is. What was isn’t what is.

P.S. There may still be head hunters in the Amazon jungle. Look at the Amish people staying the same, not modernized. So, in the Middle East, if half the population gradually got westernized, better life, and the other half does not want it, and the better life trend is dwindling, now you have a problem. The rebels. ISIS etc etc going against the westernized half.

I’ve talked to many young mid eastern men ” the civilized type” not from Nigeria but Syria, Arabia, Egypt, Iraq. You know what the common problem is?? No jobs and poverty. They want normal things like a family, a life. How long are they supposed to wait? How long can they wait for these Mid East leaders to get things together and get civilized and stop suppressing progress. Easy to divert with war, yeah take it up with them while their leaders are economically clueless except maybe the Arabs but they even have more to go.

I think the PTB’s biggest potential problem is a big economic slowdown on the entire planet. For example an abnormal 5 year BULGE in car sales normally would create an abnormal LACK of car sales later. Real estate sales too.

So…..Since they started decades ago, an unnatural globalization, or global socialism situation, they created or spread around the world an abnormal artificial ahead of its time, a “bulge” in jobs and prosperity around the world. Similar thing 1913 to 1929 16 years, was a bulge, that took 10 years to un-bulge.

This time its a much longer BIGGER bulge. 1934 to 2008, 74 years. Note they used gold confiscation and a new war II after the crash to artificially un-bulge the cost of that bulge. All this war hoopla may be related to a catch 22 situation with their global economy creation.

Before I get too bearish:Specifically, the combined front-month gamma-weighted Schaeffer’s put/call open interest ratio=surged above 6.0 last week — the most elevated reading since 2011

Posted by Richard640 @ 9:44 on April 14, 2018  

In conclusion, there’s an abundance of near-the-money put open interest on the SPY, QQQ, and IWM — more than we’ve seen in over a year. As Schaeffer’s Senior V.P. of Research Todd Salamone noted on Monday, heavy SPY put open interest could translate into an options-related floor for stocks in the near term. What’s more, after previous instances when the combined front-month gamma-weighted SOIR of the aforementioned ETFs went north of 5.0, the stock market tended to rocket higher, while the VIX plummeted.

After a slow burn to record highs in 2017, the U.S. stock market has been on a roller coaster this year, with volatility ramping up in a big way. As such, the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX) — also known as Wall Street’s “fear gauge” — kicked off 2018 with a bang, logging its best start to a year ever. Against this backdrop, near-term put open interest on a handful of major equity exchange-traded funds (ETFs) has surged, sending up a stock signal not seen since before the November 2016 presidential election.



Specifically, the combined front-month gamma-weighted Schaeffer’s put/call open interest ratio (FM-GW SOIR) on the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY), PowerShares QQQ Trust (QQQ), and iShares Russell 2000 ETF (IWM)surged above 6.0 last week — the most elevated reading since 2011, according to Schaeffer’s Quantitative Analyst Chris Prybal. In a nutshell, this indicates that near-the-money put open interest on SPY, QQQ, and IWM handily outweighs call open interest in the April series of options, which expires at next Friday’s clos

FM-GM SOIR since 2008


The combined FM-GW SOIR 10-day moving average officially topped 5.0 on March 23, marking its first trip above this threshold since Nov. 3, 2016. Below is how the S&P 500 Index (SPX) has performed after previous such highs in this metric, looking back to 2008. Notice that there were no signals in 2013, 2014, or 2017

Don’t forget Joy Behar propaganda rocket man is saner than Trump. Trying to spin the fact he accomplished something no other president has with him backing off. I guess those rockets flying around were okay with her. Now they’ll say he should be only concerned with issues at home so they can complain about that too.

Paul Craig Roberts on possibilities – written before last nights strikes

Posted by Buygold @ 9:03 on April 14, 2018  

(1) The Russians, trapped in the deluded belief that facts and evidence matter to the West and that common sense will prevail, accept the attacks. This outcome is the most dangerous of all, because this outcome will encourage more attacks until Russia is backed into a corner and has no alternative to a direct nuclear attack on the US.

(2) Russia takes the initiative in the brewing conflict and escorts the US missile ship, USS Donald Cook, out of attack range of Syria before the attack flotilla arrives and declares a perimeter line beyond which the Western flotilla becomes target for attack. This should force a showdown between Trump’s warmonger government and the US Congress that would challenge Trump’s ability to unilaterally commit the US to war.

(3) Russia escorts the Donald Cook away from the scene and simultaneously wipes out the military capabilities of Saudi Arabia and Israel, removing Washington’s ground-based allies in its attack on Syria, thus loading the odds in Russia’s favor, and making it clear that Russia is going to pre-empt attack, not respond to one.

(4) Russia, in the deluded belief that it must prove itself in the right, accepts the attack and its unpredictable damage before responding. This outcome is almost as bad as the first, as this lets the war start in contrast to options (2) and (3) which have some possibility of preventing a US/Russian confrontation by forcing common sense on the Americans.

(5) Senior German politicians inform Merkel that Britain and France’s support of the US strike on Syria could commit NATO to a war with Russia. Germany has had one devastating experience with the Russian military and does not need another. They could pressure Merkel to withdraw Germany from NATO. The resulting consternation/confusion would likely halt the US attack on Syria/Russia.

(6) The US Joint Chiefs of Staff could easily and honestly conclude that in the event of a Russian response to an attack on Syria, the entire flotilla could be lost, carrier included, inflicting a humiliating defeat on US arms, and that in view of this possibility, the Joint Chiefs recommend against the announced attack. Possibly this has occurred and explains Trump’s latest tweets, which suggest that doubts might have entered Trump’s mind.

Even if a hopeful outcome such as (5) and (6) occurs, we are left with the dangerous situation that some elements in the US and UK governments were able to orchestrate two events—the alleged Skripal poisoning and the alleged Assad chemical attack—and use the events to leverage unsupported accusations against Russia and Syria as justifications for an illegal military attack on a sovereign country. That such an outrageous orchestration is possible proves that there is no democracy or constraint on government in the US and UK.

The only one with no shred of evidence is Heir Mueller and after coming up empty is now raiding the private files of his attorney because of a prostitute from a decade ago that has nothing to do with Russians or collusion. That’s not to mention the other characters behind the scenes, how they got the fake info, where it came from and who funded it while Sessions sits on his hands.
I’m sure if this was created the swamp would be all over it. But then they don’t need evidence do they just throw accusations out there. Nice try though.

Goldie do you really believe the propaganda machine , really ??

You said “I don’t want war either but apparently Assad does because as soon as Trump said he wanted to pull our troops out he gases citizens killing men woman children.”

There is no shred of evidence that any form of gases were used or anyone died, plus why would Assad kill his own people,as the Syrian government and the rebel were close to some sort of resolution.


Please check other  credible sources for more complete assessment of the situation.

Ron Paul Rages: Assad Gassing His Own People Is “Total Nonsense”




Posted by goldielocks @ 2:32 on April 14, 2018  

I don’t want war either but apparently Assad does because as soon as Trump said he wanted to pull our troops out he gases citizens killing men woman children. He can’t use Russia as his body guard while he brutalizes citizens. There must be some reason they were targeted as uses it to keep the people afraid of him. Apparently there was enough evidence he did it including ground terrorists don’t have aircraft. Obama set red lines and Russia passed right through them. We no longer have a weak president. There was no known targets on Russia. Hope our troops in the north stay safe as I’m guessing they have terrorists, Russia and who knows who around them even if they are away from the target zone. I pray no innocent citizens were harmed in a effort to protect them. I wouldn’t be surprised if they have underground facilities. One tweet said to the citizens with Assad military saying they’re untouchable. That doesn’t look like peace to me. We can use may rely on what we hear though.


Posted by ipso facto @ 2:19 on April 14, 2018  

Perhaps this will cause people to realize how risky the whole Syria situation is and give impetus to new peace negotiations. I want to see Trump and Putin go alone into a locked room for a few hours. I’m sure a lot could be hashed out.
