One more cynical note...
July 13, 2002
Ooops. I forgot to get one last cyclical jab in.... We should all be wary that the worse things get out there in the financial world, the more *likely* it is the US (read: Bush) will pick a major fight with Iraq. There is nothing like a war to make people forget about domestic troubles and unify behind a cause. This time, however, I predict such a tactic will backfire big time...even if we finally manage to blast Saddam out of office. More on this if war does indeed begin to look more and more imminent.
DEFINITELY, be careful out there!
