According to Lindsey's information, the elites are driving down the price of oil to bankrupt Iran and the rest of the middleast.
No offense but that is ridiculous. These guys would do just fine with even another drop of Oil by 50%. The reason Oil was so high was simply to protect the USD. What you are seeing now is unwinding of that hedge using the Japanese carry trade.
We are simply heading for a USD collapse and that will NEVER be allowed to occur without WW3, the EU has already blown its budget buying up USD to achieve this levitation act and fool some people into buying those Gold short contract from them.
Appears to be working...your retirement fund manager is following his black box algorithms (designed by Wall Street) into shorting Gold and Silver at what will most likely be the worst time...
As for the action in Georgia, there is more to it. One doesn't kill Russian civilians without feeling immune. My best guess is that these Georgians have been trained by the Israelis in how to kill civilians and sent out with a promise that when the big Bear gets mobile there will be intervention by the West. Just like those poor Kurds in Iraq who believe in Bush's promise and where slaughtered by Saddam these guys are just cannon fodder.
It does however clear a nice patch of the Iran/Iraq border...
