Sorry folks. It’s Hezbollah, not Hamas. I don’t have Alzheimer’s. It’s sometimers. — MCR

April 15, 2010 — OK, this explains why Ahmadinejad wanted to pull 5 million out of Teheran this week and Israel just told all it’s citizens to evacuate the Sinai. Of all possible explanations, this is the worst. Remember that potassium iodide I suggested a few months ago?.. I’m not kidding. Every other fianancial and energy indicator is flashing red right now. Peak Oil’s gone mainstream. And the volume of forward-hedged buys passing June 2008 by miles yesterday says that players are expecting one of two things; either an imminent Israeli attack on Iran, (which a Hamas conflict could/would provoke); or a severe shortage of oil in the face of summer demand… or both. Japan is about to implode and all of the economic ugly chickens all over the world are flying home on afterburner.

If this war breaks out between Israel and Hamas in Jordan (and the Sinai), oil will almost immediately hit $95 to $100. If there is an attack on Iran, it will go to $200 as Iran moves to shut Hormuz. China will immediately launch an all-out cyber attack on the U.S. affecting internet and cell phone communications. China will also probably start dumping T-bills while simultaneously revaluing the Yuan. Hugo Chavez will next impose an oil embargo on the U.S. Oil prices might become so high as to be meaningless within weeks and immediately expose every stinking lie in congress and every stupid banking institution and central bank out there.

It may not be able to do much, but I pray that we get CollapseNet launched in time to do some good.


I haven’t felt way this since 1962 and the Cuban Missile Crisis. — Tomorrow I’m coincidentally going to hang out in northern California with some great fans and musician friends for the weekend. Hope we’re all here when I get back!
