Gates of Vienna News Feed 8/11/2010Yesterday’s stock market boost — kicked off by the Fed’s announcement that it will be buying more T-bills — didn’t last. Today the Dow dropped 2.5%, and the Nasdaq 3%. The economic outlook remains somewhat grim.

In other news, a large Iraqi militia has switched sides, and is working for Al Qaeda again. Rumor has it that Al Qaeda outbid the Iraqi government with its salary offer.

The war in Iraq has NOT been won. If Iraq falls to the enemy like Vietnam did, they are not going to leave us alone. It will not be obivious, but the help to our enemies will be effective.

It can only be a matter of time before the war comes here. Actually, it is here already, it just has not yet become big enough to been seen by all.
