The last few sessions in the markets have been breath taking, Just a few days ago on FRIDAY, HOPIUM rose and the markets became once again happy go lucky!. Despite the geo political arena getting hotter, American Ships in the straits of Hormuz, plus IRAN completing their war cry exercise and demonstrating its war capability, and selectively saying, “Don’t mess with me, I have the fire power”, its possible, the USA now discounts the IRANIANS for all their empty threats.
Last year IRAN warned “No ships shall pass my seas” and a US SHIP turned back and headed further away, with that, IRAN said “IF YOU COME THIS WAY AGAIN!, I SHALL TAKE CARE OF U!. A week later, when the SHIP returned, IRAN did nothing.
A whole lot of empty promises and lack of management displinary skills of IRANs arm forces, indeed raises many doubts, but then again, they have shown more than once, their inefficiencies, an example how they were not able to handle the naughty behavior of STUXNET or when their mililary depots blew up, due to “improperly of storage weapons” techniques.
A whole lot of questions are always raised, when it comes to IRAN, the sabre rattling has started to become boring, this could be the underestimation both parties could make, leading up to the escalation in world war three.
The USA may just push it further and strangle the IRANIAN even more, before the IRANIANS make the first move, due to fear attack.
indeed escalate world war 3, and the IRANIANS will indeed give them a tough fight, which will solve USA’s economic problems and the Industrial War Complex will once again have their way.
