Old Soldier (Veterans March, nuclear weapons availability) ID#185274:
IDT 23:21 I am no expert on the Veterans March action. From what I do know, it was not a proud moment for the Army or FDR who ordered it. Your point is well taken but I think it is one thing to take police action against a group squatting in the capitol and quite another to support a martial law that is perceived to be unjust and unnecessary and directed against the people as a whole..

Oris 23:25 Some Soviet equipment is clearly the best in the world for its intended use.

ADMs, I heard with my own ears directly from a former Politburo Member that the Soviet Union and later independent states had for a fact lost control of nuclear weapons at least numbering in the middle hundred. They had such a poor inventory system toward the end that things simply disappeared. This does not necessarily mean hundreds of fully functional weapons. Many were developmental, turned in for maintenance or just parts. We are also talking about nuclear weapons of all types. Weapons designed for artillery, bombs and missiles are not of much use by terrorists unless highly modified by technical experts. The longer they go unused the more they deteriorate and the less dangerous they are.

Old Soldier: It is easy to forget the real reason why Saddam is still around after all these years. It is not necessarily a complicated -- keep him in power to keep our fingers in the Middle East -- story. It is because the Armed Forces are controlled by politicians who want a response -- but not too big a one. Viet Nam was the same way. It's hard to fight a war when you are always being told to restrain yourself.

There is logic to restraint -- but the rules of engagement should be clearly spelled out -- but I doubt that they are when the politicians are in charge of the battlefield.

Mach: If you are in the military for the reasons you stated, you have my respect. And my sympathy. It is not MY armed forces. I have no interests in the Balkans or the Korean Penissula which require it. Whether the Kleptocratic Sheiks, Emirs ,and Kings in the middle eastern desert continue to hold their people in virtual slavery for the benefit of the big oil companies is of no interest to me either. The founding fathers had it right when they feared a standing army almost as much as they feared the excesses of democracy.

MY armed forces would consist of enough strategic capability to deter attack, a slimmed down Marine corps for possibly necessary expeditions to protect and rescue our citizens and property around the world, and EVERY MALE citizen trained, armed and ready to muster at a moments notice if we are really threatened.

I thought that with the recent awakening of the liberal news media that they might actually go after the truth. Also -- I am encouraged when our current CIA director says there is a major security problem in the Executive branch ( that was yesterday ) . But I am not encouraged that the Vince Foster and Ron Brown deaths are not reinvestigated, with such apparent blatant coverups. On the RB case, two AFIP pathologists spoke up before they were silenced -- the AFIP prides itself on being truthful and and is well respected -- so I believe them -- not the coverup.

As you probably know, the FBI is investigating all sorts of leads in Arkansas -- Clinton territory.

I am hoping that the FBI lab is no longer compromised. Are you going to tell me that you see not one iota of a move toward honesty in any branch of the US government?

By the way, I saw through BC and did not vote for him. If only he could use his god given talents to do something constructive. I honestly think he does not know what to do with himself if he is not running for election. It is clear he has no sense of history -- because if he did - he would see what he is heading for.

Thank you for insulting the hundreds of thousands of men and women in YOUR armed forces tonight. I still see the best and the brightest every day I report to work. From the lowest ranking airman to the crustiest old general, I see Americans doing the work of the military, not for the pay ( obviously ) and not for the glory ( exponentially obvious ) , but for the love of the ole US of A. I seriously doubt - no, actually I know, there is no military, anywhere on this planet, that can match the US military. Maybe some do look a little more business-like on the outside, but for the guys on the pointy end of the spear, there is still plenty of the warrior mentality to kick the S--t out of any takers.

Thank you for your answer.

I also handled some Soviet-made weapons and equipment.
I would agree with you that some of it may fail, but it
often depends upon qualifications of personnel in charge.
But some equipment is terrific, you would probably agree.

In regard to ADM, I heard some rumors that a few units
of ADM could be missing from inventory of special forces
( to my best knowledge, these ADM were intended for use
by army special forces only ) , and I am concerned.

I do believe, and you are right about it, that only
highly trained operator can fire up such device. It's
not AK-47.

Old Soldier (Proportional nuclear response, very fast mass and Saddam's future) ID#185274:
JTF 23:05 Political fallout from clean vs regular nuclear weapons would probably be the same if used against insufficient perceived provocation. If Saddam did something that killed thousands of non-combatant civilians, I doubt that few beyond the perpetual bed-wetters would get very upset. This is all a matter of proportion. Kinetic weapons are coming on fast. There are good ones for use against tanks, planes, ships missiles and satellites. Getting a deep bunker with a kinetic weapons is still in the future.

I meant Saddam may not only survive Castro but have a longer total reign. Politicians the world over idolize stability and balance. They fear the vacuum left by Saddam’s passing more than they fear Saddam’s continued presence.

Oh yes--gold.
Aussie gold's taking a breather today. Can't go up in a straight line now can they? Moderate losses across the board. My timing yesterday turned out well. Of all my sell orders--one was not filled--I was 6th in line and 5 were filled. I got left hanging--so cancelled the sell order. Guess which one of all my shares is UP strongly today? Someone up there likes me and I'm not even religious. I think the worm has finally turned on gold shares for the better--but I have been wrong in the past. That's why it pays to stay on your toes and not fall in love with your shares. It can be a very expensive exercise. Without stop losses, I would have ceased being a share trader many moons ago. Back to the market for the last half hour. Friday afternoons can be very dangerous but also very profitable if you take a chance on holding over the weekend.

Oldman (enemies) ID#162148:
JTF: Castro could NEVER be a suitable replacement for Saddam as an enemy. He is a tough military problem, since it would be necessary for our girls and boys to engage a battle hardened army in jungle terrain. Those of us who've been that route doubt if the 1998 model US military really wants that job. Cuba is terribly politically incorrect as an enemy, since almost all the people are members of one or another of our most favored victim classes. Nope, we cant afford to lose Saddam. Only possible replacement is Iran, but they have so much hardware, they may luck up and sink a ship or blow up a barracks or something. Under present conditions, all wars must be against an enemy that is incapable of inflicting casualties. More than a couple hundred body bags and Slick would have to call 'em home. Its Saddam by default: )

Old Soldier - I can think of one example where the U.S. military turned on its own, the Veterans March on Washington during the great depression. Any group with too much power can become a threat.

Earl (Conscription? Si.) ID#227238:
Oldman: In the days when a professional military was being proposed, ie, zero conscription, not enough attention was devoted to the clear implications a dedicated profession of arms CAN have. Not the least of which you have already alluded to. Now we are witness to reports out of the Marine Corps that the American civilian is being denigrated as a routine part of their training.

There are certainly ample reasons for doing so and most of them justified but at the same time it would seem to me to be a dangerous practice on the part of those who, on some bright tomorrow, may be the only people able to bear arms in the US.

I have always believed that we, as a nation, made a horrible mistake by expunging the draft. There is a certain quality of safety in knowing that a substantial number those in the of the armed forces are not there by choice. Malcontents ( I bore that label on more than one occasion ) are still able to give a good account of themselves if they see a good reason to do so. It's a matter of leadership, ...... in the meantime they would provide us with a measure of safety we cannot expect from the present configuration and mix of politics and professional arms.

Old Soldier (Soviet ADMs and the quantiy vs quality conumdrum) ID#185274:
Oris 22:38 I never handled a Soviet ADM nor do I know of anyone ever using an ADM in combat. I have handled many pieces of Soviet equipment including some that were as highly sensitive and classified as ADMs. Soviet weapons are products of a system that emphasized quantity over quality by a wide margin. Make no mistake, I am not saying that strategy is inferior. It was the best strategy for the Soviet Union. It was the strategy that won The Great Patriotic War. In many respects it is the same strategy that the Union followed in the U.S. Civil War and the U.S. followed in WWII.

The problem with that strategy as applies to the present discussion is that weapons made in haste to achieve quantity do not have as long a shelf life as weapons made with more attention to chemical/isotopic purity and precision. The cruder the weapon, the quicker it falls prey to the simple ravages of time; corrosion, chemical deterioration, etc.

I will not go so far as to say it will fail but I would expect less, maybe way less, than the planned yield. In practical terms, one in the basement of the World Trade Center might not bring it down. Make a helluva mess if it went off even sub-optimal? You bet.

A kinetic ( ballistic ) weapon would be politically clean, but I suspect that these are still in the developmental stage. Probably hard to aim a 'rock' big enough to penetrate a bunker. If not -- we will find out very soon!

I am intrigued by your comment that Saddam makes a perfect enemy, and that he may survive Castro. Do you mean that we intentionally do not wish to get rid of him, or that he has the lives of a cat? My impression as a distant observer is the former.

D.A. (the.manipulation) ID#7568:
Sas:

The fatal flaw in the manipulation arguement is the lease rate of silver. One may be upset at the fact that either an individual, group of individuals or a fund or any other entity has purchased a large quantity of silver. However, there is no denying that there is an actual acute shortage of physical metal available on the market. If metal was available the lease rate would be the same 1 or 2 percent it has been for many years. Instead, one month silver can be borrowed for better than 9%. This is radically different than any spec play seen in silver since the Hunt bros.

Why is it so hard to believe that the accumulated deficits over the last decade have drawn down existing stocks to a precarious level, and at that level intelligent speculators have decided to purchase that inventory with the knowledge that the continuing deficit will force the price higher? This is exactly what happened in the palladium market. Years of deficit were met with sales from Russian stockpiles. Someone stepped in and decided to basically purchase the remaining Russian reserves. The market then found itself in a strong deficit with no stockpiles with which to fill the gap. Lo and behold, prices responded.

This is exactly the way these markets are supposed to work and is the reason speculation actually has economic value beyond liquidity and risk spreading. Speculators by their very nature are forced to seek out the best information available so as to have an edge in their speculating. Those that do not, die. This information helps in rational price discovery. The more accurate the price the more efficient the allocation of resources in the economy. Judging by the action of the consumers of palladium, there were very few of them who had the foresight to build inventories so that in the event of a supply shortage they could continue with their businesses.

The concept of just-in-time inventory has a large flaw which is never discussed and that is that inventories have real economic value as a protection against shortages. The cost of financing inventories is the payment of this value. When entire industries adopt the same strategy of not keeping inventories the market has the potential for shock. Some cry that the speculators cause the shock, but they only hasten its arrival and actually lessen its effect because their actions occur prior to truly critical inventory levels. By causing prices to rise in advance of the actual bottom of the barrel, they stimulate the production of new supply in advance of where it might otherwise take place.

Early this morning material was posted, regarding the Bilderberg Club, formed in 1954, and a Trilateral Commission, formed in 1973. With mention about the National Security Agency ( NSA ) , formed in 1952. Such reference’s, to these organizations have appeared several times before, and I have come across the mention of these organization in other research material.

**I have a question for those with the information regarding these organizations.** When promoting the potential destructive designs of these organization, WHY ? has it not occurred to you people that your promotion has never referenced the MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE EQUATION. LABOUR - LABOUR - LABOUR. Labour creates wealth = Value = Gold = Standard of living.

Hell, I suspect that these destructive organization’s mentioned, have you gun shy. Should you not mention the impact on labour, or better, expose the actions within the world labour organization’s, by these destructive organization’s of the economic controls, that are suggested that these organizations are controlling. Yes, you will be called a RED, if you mention Labour, RIGHT? Yet, not to consider LABOUR in your information material is to lose sight of the big picture. Your presentation is not complete ! ( control the worker/citizen, they create value )

March 12 1947 - Truman Doctrine, announces aid to Greece and Turkey - aid to countries threatened by Communist take-over.

June 05 1947 - Marshall Plan proposed at Harvard commencement by Secretary of State George C. Marshall - European Aid. Nov. 17 - Truman asks Congress for $597 million - Congress gives $540 million aid for France, Italy, Austria, and China - next 40 months will authorize $12.5 Billion, as the Marshall Plan. ( to halt the spread of Communism )

June 23 1947 - Taft-Hartly Act passed *over* Truman’s *veto* . Restricts organized labour’s power to strike, prohibits use of union funds for political purposes.

July 26 1947, The Central Intelligence Agency ( CIA ) authorized by Congress in a National Security Act ( NSA ) , in response to an order by President Truman. The President has acted on the advice of Secretary of State Marshall and James V. Forrestal, the new secretary of defence.

Congress forbids the CIA to have “police, subpoena, law enforcement powers or internal security functions” inside the united states. But in the 1950’s and especially after 1967. CIA operatives will undertake domestic surveillance activities. Compile intelligence files on 10,000 USofA citizens, in violation of the National Security Act.

1947 - “Hollywood Black List” of alleged Communist sympathizers is compiled by **studio executives,** and presented at a conference at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. The list names an estimated 300 writers, directors, actors, and others known or suspected to have Communist party affiliations or of having invoked the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination.

Old Soldier (First use of nuclear weapons) ID#185274:
Silverbaron 21:44 As we heard in some of Old Gold’s past comments, the use of nuclear weapons stirs up a lot of emotion. Emotion has tremendous political fallout. History shows that politicians are in no hurry to use nuclear weapons. However, politics works both ways. If Iraq hit the U.S. with a relatively minor WMD attack, the people would probably consider a massive conventional pasting as adequate response. At some level of U.S. casualties, the people would demand a nuclear response. Saddam knows this. He is an expert at brinkmanship. Only April Gaspy, ( sp ) to her great chagrin, was able to fool, trick him into an excessive provocation. He is not likely to make the same mistake twice.

Back when I got out of high school, the creme de la creme went to Annapolis and the Point. In college the smartest and toughest were in ROTC. Of those who didnt go to college, some of the very best chose carrers in the military as NCO's. Now, the joint chiefs look and talk like bankers in uniform, the officer corps reminds one of store clerks ( both sexes ) , and the high schoolers who dont think they can make it any other way, both boys and girls join up.

==========================

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world;
the unreasonable man persists in
trying to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.


Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.


The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them,
but to be indifferent to them;
that's the essence of inhumanity.


If history repeats itself,
and the unexpected always happens,
how incapable must Man be of learning from experience?

The power of accurate observation
is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.



Democracy is a device that insures
we shall be governed no better than we deserve.


Democracy is a form of government that substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by the corrupt few.


I often quote myself; it adds spice to my conversation.


There is no satisfaction in hanging a man who does not object to it.


When two people are under the influence of the most violent,
most insane, most delusive, and most transient of passions,
they are required to swear that they will remain in that excited, abnormal, and exhausting condition continuously
until death do them part.


England and America are two countries separated by the same language.


A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend upon the support of Paul.



A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable,
but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.


He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches.


Hegel was right when he said that we learn from history that man can never learn anything from history.


It is dangerous to be sincere unless you are also stupid.



Martyrdom is the only way a person can become famous without ability.


The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic
is no more to the point than the fact
than a drunken man is happier than a sober one.


The longer I live the more I see that I am never wrong about anything, and that all the pains that I have so humbly taken to verify my notions have only wasted my time.

JTF 21:40 As a physicist you are on strong ground to understand weapons and war. At the core, weapons and war are all based on physics.

ADMs As you know, nuclear weapons require surpassing precision in machining and chemical/isotopic purity of components. The Soviets specialized in quantity over quality. The old ADMs have deteriorated since manufacture. Additionally, all major nuclear powers have taken extraordinary measures to make it very difficult for unauthorized persons to actually make nuclear weapons detonate. Unauthorized possessors of Soviet ADMs are not likely to test one. Therefore they may be very surprised to discover that it simply will not detonate as planned. Worse yet for them, it might just blow some of its chemical explosive to kill them if they use an improper arming sequence. Repackaging could only be accomplished by an extremely well equipped and developed enemy. Iraq? Probably not.

Yes, very narrow field of view is the problem with satellite detection.

A delayed action type of food toxin would be the most effective. I know of none.

Politics. I do not see martial law in our future. Our soldiers don’t think about it, aren’t trained for it, and would have no stomach for it. Believe it or not, most of our soldiers are true American patriots. They just want to do what is best for the country they love. Imposing the will of an out-of-control government on the American people is not what they signed up for. Let me be very clear, I trust our military far more than I trust our government. The U.S. military has never breached the public trust. Their oath is to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the U.S. against all enemies foreign and domestic. Believe me, we all noticed that word domestic in the oath. It is a grave and solemn trust that is not taken lightly.

major reasons the price of gold will rise.-short term


Eid Al Fitr started on January 29th, 1998 ( 1 Shawwal 1418 ) , for most countries in the Arab world. The second major festival is Eid-Al-Adha, or the festival of sacrifice, which is celebrated on the tenth day of the third lunar month after Ramadan and marks the conclusion of the
annual pilgrimage ( Hajj ) to Makkah ( April 8th, 1998 ) . However, gold trading may not take place during the holiday periods as business activity ceases then. The Eid Al-Fitr holiday is a ten day holiday; so any major gold purchases from the countries celebrating the Eid season are likely to occur between February 8th and April 7th. The US could launch air and missile attacks on Iraq, said news reports on Monday January 26th. They would be a result of the Iraqi standoff against U.N. weapons inspection teams. However, the attacks would not occur for at least two weeks. The news reports claimed that their sources were from the Pentagon. Military action was unlikely in January in any case,
during Ramadan, as this could alienate regional allies.


-long term

Gold loans and deficits caused by short-sales are estimated at 8000 tonnes, according to analyst Frank Veneroso. On November 12th, 1997, he claimed that the world gold market's gap between supply and demand
was 700 tonnes larger than estimated- so that demand for gold to cover short market positions will eventually send the price of gold soaring.

Political uncertainties from the US Presidency can be cited as risk factors for the markets for the immediate future, which is illustrated by the gold price rise ( an $8 jump ) on January 23rd as the dollar
weakened in response to allegations of wrongdoing and rumours of resignations.

We are already witnessing drops in production from high cost mines such as Evander, Freegold and Kloof in South Africa, Royal Oak’ s operations and Mount Todd ( Pegasus ) in Australia. Mined gold production is looking
into the abyss and the rate of decline will pick up in the next few months. http://www.gold.org/Pages/Home1.htm>http://www.gold.org/Pages/Home1.htm

At $320/oz., 50% of the western world's gold production is unprofitable on a full cost basis.

At $320/oz., 25% of the western world's gold production is unprofitable on a cash cost basis.

At $320/oz., only 5 of 19 of South Africa's major mines could show a profit.

LGB - it is clear that silver is being manipulated, that is, stocks are being removed from the officially reported COMEX inventories to create the impression of a shortage. There is nothing new here - the same players have tried the same tactic several times before, although this is the first time they have attracted law suits. Those who are long silver can profit from the situation, however they should be aware that when the manipulators finally bail out then months of gains will disappear in a day. If you want to know the real story regarding silver supply, talk to Kodak.

I think Martin Armstrong's major problem with the manipulation is that the traders involved are not capable of making money based on their trading skills, but must distort the perceived reality in order to sucker big money into a rally so that they can exit with a profit.

Chretien says Canada economic fundamentals strong

OTTAWA, Jan 29 ( Reuters ) - Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien said on Thursday the value of the Canadian dollar was up to the markets, but that the country's economic fundamentals were very strong.

Canada's economic fundamentals are the best of the Group of Seven ( industrialized nations ) and among the best in the OECD ( the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development ) , he told reporters after a cabinet meeting.

We have virtually no more ( budget ) deficit, we don't have any inflation, unemployment is falling, we have begun paying our debt.

Canada's dollar weakened to a new record low against the U.S. currency on Thursday.

It's the markets that decide on the Canadian dollar... the governor of the Bank of Canada is doing his job, Chretien said.

All the countries are under pressure because of the fluctuations of the currencies around the world, and everybody is going into the American dollar at this moment, Chretien said.

Dollar lower than it should be: Chretien

OTTAWA ( CP ) ­ Prime Minister Jean Chretien says the dollar is lower than it should be given the strength of the Canadian economy, but he's not showing any alarm at the currency's decline.

He made no suggestion that the Bank of Canada should raise interest rates to shore up the currency. The Canadian dollar limped today toward its third record low in as many days, reaching 68.29 cents US by midday.

LGB2__A (@ Silver lawsuit...Kaplan's comments) ID#315256:


A lawsuit has been brought by the New York law firm of Lovell and Stewart against Phibro and various
other co-defendants, claiming that they attempted to manipulate the silver market by withdrawing silver
from official COMEX stocks and hiding the bullion in unmarked warehouses in London ( perhaps James
Bond's Goldfinger was consulted on this matter ) . A careful reading of the text of the lawsuit reveals that
the plaintiffs have ( or pretend to have ) little or no basic knowledge of commodity price movements,
contending that silver should have moved in lockstep with gold and copper ( ! ) , and since it didn't, there
must be a conspiracy of manipulation. The fact that the gold price was depressed in 1997 by tons of gold
loans and short selling, or that copper's correlation with any of the precious metals is tenuous at best,
was not mentioned. Also, the obvious behavior of palladium and platinum setting multi-year highs just
before silver did, a much more important historical correlation typical of the white metals, was nowhere
to be found. Nymex president Patrick Thompson has categorically denied that there has been any kind
of manipulation in regard to their silver stocks. In my opinion, this suit has about as much merit as a
disappointed owner of Sybase stock claiming that there must be manipulation since other high-tech
shares like Microsoft have performed much better.

JTF - re your 21:03 post.
US money supply reduced by 20% during the 1930s. It was the Fed's unwillingness ( as opposed to inability ) to inject liquidity into the economy, even in the face of a large inflow of gold into the US, that caused the collapse of the banking system. This is a mistake they won't make again.

In Asia at the moment we have massive inflation. The money supplies of many Asian countries are being increased at more than 20% per year. When you have huge non-performing loans and/or foreign debt, increasing the money supply probably won't help with economic growth. The only sure thing is that the purchasing power of the local currency will be reduced.

Organ ( Bilderberg and Trilateral Commission -- Fascinating article )
ID#162309:
3 ) World Government, interview with an
insider....?

Section 1 mirrors a Greek site:
http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Forum/8604/strigas.txt

Athanasios Strigas, interviewed here, studied Political and Economic
Science
at the University of Heidelberg. He then took Foreign Relations and
International Strategy in the University of Georgetown in Washington D.C.

and Propaganda in Patris Lumumba of Moscow.

He started his career as an attaché and nowadays is a specialised consultant
to the supreme military
commander of NATO and has close connections with the Trilateral
Commission. Most of his time is
spent in Brussels and in the last year and a half he has published 4
successful books.

Strigas has revelaed some shocking facts in Greece about domestic politics
using secret
documents etc. as proof. He also predicted a military crisis between Greece
and Turkey 18
months before it happened and named exactly the small island which was
the focus of the
crisis. Unfortunately his books are only available in Greek but in them he
reveals a great deal
about the US National Security Agency and the Trilateral Commission and
the Bilderberg
Club, sometimes far more than anything you can find on the world- wide
web.

This interview is translated, imperfectly, from the original Greek.



* We all know that countries are being guided by their political and
military leaders. Big
countries and small do exist and also the small countries are dependant on
the big ones.
Despite this in your books you mention two international decision making
centres which, in
your opinion, are above countries and ideologies. Could you be more
specific about that?

* It may sound exaggerated but people these days are being guided by
political and military
leadership according to the orders of two global centres: The Trilateral
Commission and The
Bilderberg Club. This marks a new era and it is not something that has
happened in the past.

In the past, the world was ruled by ideologies. We know ideologies were
used to control the people.
But conflicting ideologies were also creating wars. Therefore, for a while,
countries formed alliances.

More recently there has been a change in the global scenery. Everything
has been globalised. The
world has become a global village. Therefore it needs global decision
making centres. From this point
of view the Planetarchy, if we can call it that, will be the politics of the
21st century. This marginalises
national governments which are now dependent on those international
centres.

Today we see that profit now determines the destinies of countries. The
world is already being ruled
by representatives of those two centres. The task of today's governments is
to look after 93% of the
international wealth. That is the wealth that those two centres own.



* What exactly are the Bilderberg Club and the Trilateral Commission?

* The Bilderberg Club is an international decision making centre named
after a hotel near the Dutch
town of Oosterbeek where its first convention took place in 1954. Its
headquarters is in The Hague
in Holland. In its conventions two types of people take part we can call
the 'protagonists' and the
'supernumerary'.

The supernumerary are something like guest speakers, they are only
allowed to speak a few minutes
and always on the first day of the convention. The Guidance Committee of
the Club protagonists is
made up of Americans and Europeans from the developed countries, never
has a person from the
Third World been on it.

The Club is made up of people with conservative 'aberrations' such as
Giovanni Anieli, Luns,
Rothschild etc. The Bilderberg Club's president is today James Callahan,
British ex- prime minister
and his assistant is the ex- General Secretary of NATO, Lord Carrington.
Maybe you remember that
in 1993 the Club met in Greece, in the Asteras hotel in Bouliagmeni.

The Bilderberg Club today controls 33% of the world's wealth. Some
members of the Bilderberg
Club, without having departed from it officially, established in June 1973 a
new, more powerful
group, the Trilateral Commission led by David Rockefeller, president of the
Chase Manhattan Bank.
Members of the Trilateral Commission operate in parallel with but
somewhat above the Bilderberg
Club as a centre of research and analysis. The founding members of the
Trilateral Commission are
Sirus Vance and Warren Christopher. David Rockefeller is president and
Zbigniew Brzezinski is
chief executive. The Trilateral Commission manages 60% of international
wealth.



* How do those centres get so much power?

* I think it is obvious that they take the power from the international
wealth they control and from the
various political appointments, presidents and prime ministers ( which are
mostly technocrats ) which
they control and guide.



* But how is possible to select candidates? Do top politicians accept being
only token leaders
of their countries?

* This is a reasonable question but remember, human ambition has no
limits. Skilful people exist that
do not care for means nor consequences in order to rise to the top of their
country's leadership. The
selection for suitable protagonists to serve the two centres is made after
checked information which
analysts of the NSA [U.S. National Security Agency] have collected, with
the help of organisations
such as CIA, DIA and DEA.

The NSA personal reports are transferred in the end to the Steering
Committee of the Bilderberg
Club. The Committee meets secretly and the conclusion is sealed in a
special envelope which is then
given to the Bilderberg Club and Trilateral Commission presidents. The
presidencies approve the
decision almost 99% of the time.

Qualifications for candidates are very fluid, [joke?] I mean elastic
consciousness or, if you want,
plasticity, to comply with the international decision making philosophy.
Another element of control is
that they must not disturb the global balance. This is essential because this
balance has nothing to do
with the balance of the world but simply balance of the global profit and
loss account. The members
must globally ensure the income of the two international centres funds.



* But didn't that happen also in the past?

* In the past if someone was a prime minister or a president he would
have come into conflict with
the great powers, he would have been characterised as 'troublemaker' and
underminer of liberty and
then would have been 'vanished' politically or biologically.

Today the politicians are servants whose masters do not allow them to
make any independent moves.
You have seen in the recent German elections ( which happened at the
same time as our [Greek]
council elections ) that the French were the ones that were celebrating the
victory of Kohl because the
Mark is supporting the French Franc. The leaders no longer have any
freedom. You likewise are
probably obliged to your friends to take them into consideration in your
own moves and plans.



* Could you give us an example?

* Let's imagine that this, or the next, Greek government had the will to
solve the Albanian and
Turkish problem and the dispute between Greece and the former
Yugoslavia for Macedonia. What
would they do? Just 300 men are enough to invade the Aktio base in
Preveza, Western Greece,
which belongs to the NSA and then every problem would be solved. If this
base were occupied all
communications in the Balkans and Turkey would be paralysed. But such a
move would need much
courage.



* What are the methods, groups and structures of the global decision
making centres?

* The methods that are being used are simple; I promote you as a president,
prime minister, military
leader; you satisfy your vanity and have ethical and economical profits. In
return you have to blindly
obey us. If not we destroy you by corruption, forced resignation or
assassination. At least this is what
happened up until now.



* What tendencies do you see in those centres today then?

* These days you can see a tendency for renewal. And therefore it was
decided in the last Bilderberg
meeting to give the people 2% percent more of their international wealth,
something that the old ones
did not accept. There are conflicts between conservatives and more liberal
types. But I believe the
last will in the end dominate.



* Recently, humanity watched anxiously the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Which dynamics led
to this collapse and what did it really mean?

* The collapse of the Soviet Union was begun in 1973 by the Trilateral
Commission and part of the
Bilderberg Club. The members who left Bilderberg and formed the
Trilateral Commission used shock
tactics and have brought the control of the remains of the Soviet Union to
the Bilderberg. This was
made possible because in the Summer of 1973, 30 July specifically, The
Trilateral Commission
controlled 60% of global wealth with their World Bank. So it became the
dominator of the game.
The purpose of the Soviet Union's collapse is to demonstrate internationally
the failure of the
Communist ideology and present it as a system that is inhuman.

Besides this, because the population of the earth is growing, the extra 2%
that will be given to the
people will be granted to the Soviet Union out of the mining of their
geological mineral wealth. The
soviet people must be educated as consuming citizens as in the west. In
order to control those people
many new countries will be created that will not have constant peace.



* What is the role of the International Monetary Fund?

* The International Monetary Fund is a branch of the World Bank. Today,
most countries are
obliged to borrow money because they cannot get it from private capital or
from other countries. This
necessity occurs either because of a failure to manage public resources or
because the 5 year plan
failed or because there is internal turmoil etc..

There exist of course also politicians that redeem the sympathy of the
people by offering them
short- term material comforts and asking from them the minimum of their
possible efforts. They do this
of course with money they take from the national budget that should be
normally given to
development projects.

Anyway, the point is that sometimes countries reach a dead- end. When
this happens the IMF
exploits the circumstances: it grants a pre- approval of the loan to those
countries but with its own
conditions. This means that you will get the loans from the banks ( that are
all controlled by the World
Bank ) if you take specified measures which are almost every time anti-
social. This results in turmoil in
the society. The government panic. In order to calm down the turmoil even
more money must be
borrowed.

In this way the government finally gets totally controlled by the IMF.

Let's take for example the Greek education system. 60% of the Education
Ministry outlays are
coming from loans of the IMF. So it is not at all odd that from the 150.000
kids only 40.000 go to
the public universities.

All the above explain also why public works in our country always begin
but never end.



* What are the global decision making centres most afraid of?

* One is the soft spot of the global leaders ( even if this sounds impossible
) and this lies in their
constant fear whether someday the people wake up and demand the wealth
that is rightly theirs. The
same happened in the ex- Soviet Union. The NSA had information that
some people were leading
millions of soviets to a revolution in order to get back more than 70 years
stolen wealth. They were
informed about this movement in time and prevented it by dismembering
the country.



* You mentioned before an enormous in power organisation, the NSA.

* Yes, that's right. The NSA ( National Security Agency ) was founded on
4th November 1952 by
president Truman and its headquarters is at Fort Mead USA. It has more
than 2,000,000 agents and
scientists all over the world.

There is no committee in Congress, not even any laws that control their
activities. In reality there is
not even an act to affirm its establishment. There exist only documents to
protect it.

The security standard is very high and its electronic equipment is unique.
It has the most perfect
computer centre in the world. Its computers are gathering and analysing
daily all the information from
the hundreds of monitoring stations that are on the whole planet and in
this way they oversee the
telecommunications of both the friendly and enemy countries. The Greek
part of the NSA network is
the American base of Aktio.

It is equipped with scores of satellites which, for example, monitor the
movements of the Serbs or of
Saddam and in seconds they inform the headquarters of the organisation.

If you ask someone which is the biggest secret service in the world, they
might mention the CIA, DIA
or KGB. The NSA has deliberately cultivated the impression that the secret
services of USA that do
everything are the CIA and the DIA. Many books and articles have been
written about these secret
services. But of the NSA no- one has ever written anything. In reality the
better known services are
executive organs of the NSA which, from its side, is the executive organ of
the two global decision
making centres that we mentioned before; the Bilderberg Club and the
Trilateral Commission.

Remember, the NSA manufactures politicians ( presidents and prime
ministers ) always according to
the orders of the two global centres. It recruits geniuses from all over the
world, it is said that it is the
inventor of the infections of the modern world and of many more things
that it is impossible for the
simple human mind to hold.



* How can anyone manufacture politicians?

* You mean well built?!! There is a committee of politician manufacturing
whose president is David
Rockefeller with vice president Richard Foren, who is a leading consultant
to General Electric.
Members of this committee are Henry Kissinger, Alexander Hague, Toshio
Nakamura, Edmold
Rothschild, Jovianni Anielli, Sirus Vans, Charles Duncan ( ex- president of
Coca- Cola ) and Helmut
Schmidt.

The politicians that are going to be presidents or prime ministers are
approved or turned down by the
above council which meets once a month in the central building of the
NSA.

When the candidate is approved or disapproved the brainwash from the
Mass Media begins. Money
is given from the Central Banks to help establish a party, campaign etc.. At
the same time the other
secret services take orders so that the NSA plan is carried out.



* What do you see in the near future? Will the status quo remain or will
there be changes in
the world?

* I think that the changes will begin in the area of Saudi Arabia, changes
that will have an effect on
the whole international scene. I predict the fragile balance of the oil cartels
will be altered when 3- 4
oil wells of Aramco's cartel are bombed. This will mean an increase in the
price of petroleum
products. The cartels for one or two years will have low profits.

If this happens Greece, with its oil, can play a leading role. Here we will
have a repeat of the Onasis
phenomenon which was recently made public with all its twisted situations.
This time Greece can play
a leading role in Europe because the economic strength of its oil will make
it the 3rd power in the
European Union. I mean that England will loose its oil wells in the Black
Sea, which belong to BP
and Shell, at the same time as the coup d'etat in Saudi Arabia. It is very
possible that the geographic
borders of Greece with Turkey, former Yugoslavia and Albania will change
and also the borders of
Germany and Poland ( the Oderneisser line ) .

England will loose Scotland because the Scottish autonomists will blow its
oil wells. After the IRA
has made an agreement with England a part of it will go to support the
Scottish autonomists.

Being under high pressure, and after having passed the economic
convulsion which will lead to the
global shock we mentioned before, the world's economy will make an
opening to China. China, of
course, will ask for something in return. An exchange could be India.

What does this mean? It means that China will be allowed to invade India
under false pretences. The
Bilderberg Club will supply India, and the Trilateral Commission will
renew the armour of China.

In this war, in order to reduce the world's population, the neutron bomb
will be used. One time
general of NATO's army, Alexander Hague, was fighting off proposals for
the neutron bomb, so on
29th June 1979 they tried to assassinate him.

If this happens Pakistan and Turkey will be dragged in, and Turkey will
split up in two halves,
Eastern and Western part. If this happens Tansu Ciller will put Turkey in
the European Union.

Taking this opportunity I should tell you that within the vast changes that
will happen in the near future
is a step- up of the Ecumenical Patriarchy of Konstantinopolis. I mean that
it will play a more
important role than today. Already Ciller has a draft law ready for the
Turkish parliament if conditions
allow it. In this law the Patriarchy will become a separate state, something
like the Vatican.



* Except for exploiting the global wealth where else do the two global
decision centres target?
Isn't it a little bit unreasonable to say that a small group of humans does
affect and control
almost all the countries on earth? How do they manage not to loose control
of them?

I'm suspicious of a site analysis that repeats the same lines over and over like a mantra, once the point has already been made. I'd have to agree that while there may be some truth or potential truth to the Silver manipulation theory, the Princeton site author may very well have some short positions! Look back at his earlier posts also. Repeats the same mantra over and over and over like a metronome.

When we look at the lawsuit, the Pricnceton site, and al similar such points of view, I have yet to see them answer one basic question. Namely, even if some siphoning has ocurred lately, how does this fundamentally change the long term supply demand fundamentals re production/consumption trends that have been consistent for at least 8 years now? A time when we've seen roughly 200 million ounces consumed over what has been produced each and every year? This is going to suddenly reverse course in a world of exploding demand? I think not!

The Asian crises may very well bring about a slowdon in Silver consumption but I'd be reluctant to be the one to predict that the past decade trend is going to suddenly reverse, and that the current holders of Silver will be forced to dump 200 to 500 million ounces on the market.

Old Soldier: Sure hope you're right. Your post gives great relief. But there are larger issues. When Iraq is finally completely dismembered as a nation, which it surely will be soon, where will we find a replacement enemy? Anyone who has read 1984 and lived through the last third of the 20th century knows that the modern leviathian state REQUIRES enemies. Iraq, with Saddam at the helm is ideal. Its a small country, about the size of Georgia, with a population about half California's. Its terrain is such that our strategic smart weapons can destroy them, without our girls ever having to engage a determined enemy on the ground. Its population is of a religious and ethnic group that has been the brunt of brutal propaganda out of Hollywood and the TV networks for half a century, till now almost all Americans have a visceral hatred of them and dont give a damn if Clinton's embargo kills half a million of their children ( which it has ) . And, lastly, Saddam Hussein is dumb as a fence post. Yup, for an enemy for the modern liberal super-state, Iraq is probably irreplaceable.
BTW: If our Secretaries of State, Defense, Treasury, and the head of the NSC were ALL ARABS, do you think our Middle East policy would be different?

Old Soldier: Your comments make alot of sense. I am a physicist, not a military man. But -- I do know that Russian technology is far behind us in most things, except missle boosters and some other items. Those ADM's as you call them, could very well be defective. I wonder, could an enterprising terrorist repackage them? By the way, I think you and I are agreeing that our satellite detectors have a very narrow field of view, so other sources of intelligence have to be used to aim them in the right direction.

And -- if, as you say the dose of a toxin in the food supply is not evenly distributed -- we have a very efficient communication system with a suberb team of experts that can quarantine affected areas -- the CDC. Incidentally they just quarantined an area where a Tuberculosis outbreak was effectively stopped -- the organism grows 1000x faster than the common Mycobacterium TB. In Tennessee somewhere.

Expanding on your comments about food poisoning -- the most dangerous kind would be a delayed acting one, because then with our centralized distribution system, millions of people could be affected before the CDC or ? got involved.

I have rather serious question for you. Do you trust the people in our government to put the safety of the American people over their desire to punish a foreign country like Iraq? If a major terrorist attack by a foreign power was encouraged by some less uprightous members of our government -- that could be used as an excuse to impose martial law, and take over the country. I would not have thought that possible years ago, but now I am not so sure. By the way, I sense a movement within our government to move toward more honesty, justice and truth in leadership - but is it moving quickly enough? -- I don't know.

Thanks in advance for your comments.

I am a long-time lurker. I have been brought out of lurking to comment on something I know a great deal about; weapons and war. I am a retired U.S. Army Infantry Colonel

A few comments and facts about Weapons of Mass Destruction ( WMD )

Oldman 18:26 We probably will not use a conventional explosive bomb to destroy chemical and biological weapons. That would tend to spread them around. We will use special deep penetration incendiary bombs that will break into the bunkers and then burn the agents in place. Not 100% effective, but good enough. Oldman, you imply that once released, these agents would endanger virtually everyone. This is a common misconception but simply not true. Bugs and gas are quickly diluted, destroyed, and dispersed in the atmosphere to the point that they become ineffective. Down-wind danger from even huge releases is measured in 1-10 miles at most.

JTF 18:40 You mention the hamburger and strawberry problems as examples of how bad bug and gas could be in U.S. Actually, the small number of casualties from these events point to the real weaknesses of bugs and gas as weapons. As soon as the first casualties occur, there are cheap, easy and effective methods to limit the damage. Even the old idea of a small amount of botulism toxin in the water is not as horrible as it sounds. Water systems do not distribute water uniformly in area or time. The first casualties would provide ample warning to prevent mass casualties.

Anthrax smuggled in a vial at a time. That is simply not a big enough supply to do much damage. They still would have to figure a way to disperse it widely and in proper concentration. Not easily done.

JTF 19:13 Suitcase nuclear weapons. Actually, Atomic Demolition Munitions ( ADM ) . Most old Soviet equipment is crap. Could work, probably not. This stuff is old and was faulty from the start. Still, this provides the greatest danger. Forget satellite detection. Satellites have to be looking where the thing is that you want to see. They are virtually useless at scanning broadly for things that do not have a big signature. They can see the heat bloom from the launch of an ICBM or the detonation of a nuclear weapon but the chance of them spotting something as small as ADM radiation signature is small indeed. They could not even find SCUDs in Iraq.

Mooney: Once a major deflationary cycle begins -- expanding the money supply does not work -- for example -- if we gave S Korea all the money it wanted right now -- would that really do the trick? No! Also during the great depression, the money supply was expanded ( probably too late to help ) and the banks still refused to loan. I guess they were gun shy. And -- look at Japan with negative real interest rates well before 1997.

I still do not know whether the money supply was expanded or contracted in the immediate pre-1929 period in the US -- have read several books and got several different answers. But -- I do know that Herbert Hoover was a businessman, and more competent than generally assumed. Prebably more competent than the FED was at that time.

However -- you are right that we are not at that point of severe deflation.

I still think there are two deflationary triggers that must be considered in the US: The deflationary effects of a SEAsian good Tsunami, or a sudden stock market collapse. After seeing the post about low liquidity in SEAsia, I think we can be less worried about the SEAsian goods Tsunami. A stock market collapse is still possible.

I hate to bring it up again, but I don't believe it is in anyone's interest to allow blatant inconsistencies and fallacious argumentation to go unanswered.The inference that Jesus Christ may be accepted as a great moral teacher or prophet, along with Budda, Mohammed, etc. etc. is preposterous. He was either exactly who He said He was, or He was the greatest fraud in the entire history of mankind. There is no middle ground as to who He was. He made very exclusive claims as to His identity. If He was not God, His life and ministry were nothing but an elaborate, blasphemous deception. You can take Him or leave Him, but don’t try to incorporate Him.

D.A.: I admire your solid confidence in inflation over deflation -- it is harder for me to be sure. However, one Kitcoite posted in the last 24 hours that even Malaysias liquidity dropped precipitously. I would expect that foreign trade would require a functioning financial system, so if other SEAsian countries have similar problems, perhaps the 'cheap goods tsunami' is not a problem.

Also I was wondering if the rapid rise in the commodity price index might have something to do with the low liquidity in SEAsia.

Japan and Russia Seek Closer Military Cooperation

Japan and Russia are moving ahead rapidly with plans for increased military
cooperation that were outlined during a November, 1997, summit between
Russian President Boris Yeltsin and Japanese Prime Minister Ryutaro
Hashimoto. Masahiro Akiyama, Deputy Head of the Japanese National Defense
Agency, in Russia this week for a series of meetings with top level Russian
defense officials, announced on Wednesday that Japan would reduce its
military forces on Hokkaido by over 20 percent. Russian Defense Minister
Igor Sergeyev in turn vowed to further reduce Russia's military presence in
the Kurile Islands. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, forces on
the Kuriles have already been cut by over half.

During closed door talks in Moscow, Akiyama, Sergeyev, Admiral Vladimir
Kuroyedov, Commander in Chief of the Russian Navy, and Leonid Ivashov, Head
of the Defense Ministry's Chief Department for International Military
Cooperation, discussed issues of security in Northeast Asia and prospects
for closer Russo-Japanese defense cooperation in the Far East. Akiyama
announced that he regarded the meetings as a major success. He stated that
Tokyo was interested in military-technological cooperation with Russia, bu
was being held back by Japan's self-imposed restrictions on the transfer of
military technology. Akiyama proceeded to discount those restrictions,
stating, The world is changing, however, and I hope that such cooperation
will be possible in the future.

Akiyama's visit is but the first in a string of military exchanges
scheduled for this year. Japanese military pilots will travel to Russia in
February to train to fly Sukhoi Su-27 fighters. Working groups from the
Russian Navy and the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Forces ( JMSDF ) are
scheduled to meet in March to coordinate future contacts and joint naval
maneuvers. The Commander of Russia's Pacific Fleet, Mikhail Zakharenko,
will meet in April with the JMSDF Chief of Staff. The Head of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff of the Japanese National Defense Agency, Admiral Kazui
Natsukawa, will visit Moscow in May, and the Head of the Russian Armed
Forces General Staff, Anatolii Kvashnin, will make a return visit to Japan
several months thereafter. In a move demonstrating that current pragmatic
reality has vanquished memories of 1905, Kuroyedov invited a ship of the
JMSDF to participate in celebrations of Russian Navy Day in July.

Russo-Japanese relations are surging ahead along non-military fronts as
well. Russian Foreign Ministry official Alexander Losyukov announced on
Monday that an agreement on Japanese fishing rights around the Kuriles
would be signed in a matter of days. Japan's Michinoku Bank, which
specializes in financing trade between Japan and Russia's Far East, will
open a Moscow branch in June, making it the first fully Japanese-owned bank
with offices in Russia. Russian cabinet minister Irina Khakamada on
January 22 called on Japan to assist in bolstering small and mid-sized
Russian businesses. Finally, Japanese and Russian officials are meeting
this week in Moscow to discuss joint exploitation of Russia's Siberian
natural gas reserves.

That Japan and Russia are rushing into each other's arms is not surprising.
Both are feeling intense pressure from the same source--the United States.
Confident, at least for the time being, in the Soviet Union's collapse,
Washington no longer sees the need to suffer economic hardship from Japan
in exchange for Pacific containment of Russia. The U.S. has lost interest
in Vladivostok, and so is free to deal with Japan as it would any other
economic competitor. Japan, which held a special relationship with the
United States for 40 years, now feels maltreated. Russia, fractured and
driven back from Europe, is now turning its attentions East--first to China
and now to Japan. We do not believe that Japan is merely signaling to
Washington a desire for special favors. Tokyo is attempting to wrest
itself, and the Western Pacific, away from Washington's sway. For now,
this means a closer relationship with Russia and perhaps China. What
happens when Russia, Japan, and China each try to assert leadership of this
triumvirate and dominance of East Asia, we will have to wait and see.

JTF (Suitcase nukes) ID#57232:
SilverBaron: I think Allen ( USA ) is right that the suitcase Nukes could be detected with Satellite-based scanning aperture radiation detectors. However, some might have gotten through if our people were asleep at the switch, because these devices have to be aimed in the right direction, and it takes time to get enough counts to locate the device. I hope someone in our intelligence service is keeping a runnling tally of all the missing Nukes. My hope is that we have found all of them -- but we will never know, will we? If one got through our detection web, it might be possible to hide it deep underground in the US, so that the radiation could not be detected. But -- once anyone tried to move it -- it would show up, I think.

Lets hope we or someone else has done away with any individuals that have one of those little diabolical devices.

LONDON, Jan 29 ( AFP ) - A giant Antarctic ice sheet more than 100
miles ( 160 kilometers ) across is breaking up because of a rapid rise
in climate temperature, British scientists warned Thursday.
The sheet is so large it could disrupt the Gulf Stream, the warm
current of water which flows north from the mid-Atlantic to the west
British coast and warms the country far beyond the norm for its
closeness to the North Pole, experts including the British Antarctic
Survey reported.
They added that the Larsen B ice shelf on the eastern side of
the frozen continent will eventually disintegrate.
At the moment it is described as critically unstable, and
unless the retreat of the ice halts, is expected to collapse over
the next two years.
A total of five thousand square miles ( 13,000 sq kilometres ) of
ice in the region has so far disappeared due to atmospheric warming,
but the Larsen is the biggest so far, the report noted.
Temperatures around the icecap are rising five times faster than
the global average and signs of warming are evident all around the
coast, with grass growing in areas once too cold to support it.

Per Chinese culture the Year of the Tiger which greets us today every 12th year is synonymous with CHANGE and STRENGTH. And indeed it was so the last Year of the Tiger - 1986.

The dawn of the last Year of the Tiger saw a low in the price of Chuk Kam ( GOLD ) of $330 per troy ounce. It heralded a dramatic reversal in the price trend of precious yellow... for during the next two years the Midas metal soared relentlessly to a high of $502 - reached in December 1987. An increase of over 52%.

Historically, gold and silver stocks as a group appreciate 3-4 TIMES GREATER than the percent increase in the value of bullion. Should history repeat, we are talking an increased XAU value of 156% to 240% - POSSIBLY BEFORE THE MILLENNIUM. And one would expect many individual gold and silver stocks to zoom far more.

The above scenario echoes the STRENGTH characteristic of the Year of the Tiger. How about the CHANGE? Well, we are all watching IT as I speak... of course I am referring to the dramatic economic, financial and monetary CHANGE sweeping through all Asia. The resulting domino Effect is currently extending to distant shores... for example, most industrialized nations reducing GNP growth estimates for 1998, Deutsche Bank ( Germany’s largest ) talking about “restructuring” due to its horrendous losses incurred in its Asian Loan Portfolio, Switzerland’s UBS brought to humble take-over by Swiss Bank Corp. due to its Korean “Adventures,” Dutch Banks face loss of hundreds of millions in Asian bad loans, the Mexican Peso on the verge of another massive devaluation, China daily denying the possibility of a 25%-40% devaluation, and ad nauseam. YES, we are all undergoing draconian CHANGE, and IN SPADES!

Interestingly, GOLD is demonstrating all the earmarks of STRENGTH... LONG LIVE THE TIGER!

Saddam has had plenty of time to smuggle anthrax spores into the
US. All he has to do is tell the US that he has agents in major cities
waiting to release the dust. No need for expensive ICBMs. If we can't stop tons & tons of cocaine, heroine, morphine from entering America, what makes us think we could stop a few kilograms of spores?

What the hell could we do? Nothing.

We'd just start drop'n dead - major panic - etc. Hopefully we'd be prepared with ready antibiotics - supposing, of course, that that
thug-murder-of-children-and-women hasn't made them resistant to most antibiotics.

In any case, such an act would be more than enough for me to nuke Iraq into radioactive glass.

Company Press Release

Band-Ore Resources New Platinum-Palladium Discovery

TORONTO-- ( BUSINESS WIRE ) --Jan. 29, 1998--Band-Ore Resources L ( TSE:BAN. - news )
Band-Ore Resources is pleased to announce a new platinum group element ( PGE ) discovery in
Timmins, Ontario. The 100 percent owned, 270 claim unit ( 10,800 acre ) property, is located in
Nordica and McEvay townships, approximately 15 km southeast of the Golden Knight/Cross Lake
polymetallic discoveries in Sheraton township.

Initial assay results from surface grab samples prepared by independent laboratories indicate the
presence of 0.30 percent copper, 0.30 percent nickel, 1.1 g/t palladium plus highly anomalous
platinum and anomalous rhodium values. Reconnaissance work by the Company and the Ontario
resident geologist's office indicate the mineralization is located in a classic layered mafic to
ultramafic intrusive complex with many similarities to the well-known Bushveld complex in South
Africa and the Stillwater complex in Montana. Layered intrusive complexes of this type host
significant nickel, copper, PGE, and chromite deposits throughout the world.

Additional assay results are pending, including petrographic analyses and whole rock geochemical
results.

In preparation for a diamond drilling program to evaluate the surface showing, ground geophysical
surveys are underway on a large airborne anomaly with an indicated strike length of over 20 km. A
second airborne magnetic anomaly is present on the property with an indicated strike length of
approximately 15 km. A highly magnetic, olivine rich rock unit ( troctolite ) is believed to be present
which will provide a useful marker horizon in conjuction with magnetic and electromagnetic surveys.

Donald__A (Robert Prechter comments on the Dow Gold Ratio on his BB) ID#26793:
January 26, 1998
( 1/1/98 ) Dear Bob, On several occasions you have been kind enough to reply to my questions
personally. I have come across a reference on the net which is fairly self explanatory, and upon
which I would value your comment. Reprint from Futures Magazine, sent in to the SOUND OFF!
section of the Jan. 1998 edition: Frost and Prechter's Elliot wave counts place supercycle wave C
at the low of 1932. If instead you believe R.N. Elliot and Hamilton Bolton, supercycle wave C ended
in 1946. This leads to supercycle wave I ending at 1000 in late 1965, as predicted by Bolton in
1953, followed by supercycle wave II ending in 1982, and we currently are in the middle of the
biggest, strongest supercycle wave III. ( My wave counts indicate that within supercycle wave III,
1982-87 was cycle wave I, and 1992-1997 was cycle wave III, with cycle waves IV and V yet to
come, before we even get to supercycle waves IV and V. ) Elliot predicted that supercycle wave V
would top out in 2012. Personally, I'm holding out for the year 2029, so we can celebrate the 100th
anniversary of the 1929 crash with another one. We have a long way to go before the dreaded ABC
correction of this supercycle and the next great depression.

If Elliott himself ( and Hamilton Bolton ) did make the above described 1946 count, and the year
2012 supercycle V prediction, it would seem to lend some weight to the interpretation described in
the above quoted article, and fit will with the demographic fundamentals, which I understand you do
not agree with. I realize that you are firmly of the view that the supercycle V reaction is upon us
already, but also that you would have sound reasons for disagreeing with Elliot and Bolton. Yours
faithfully, David Bennett, Brisbane Australia
Reply from Bob Prechter


Thanks for sending this in. First of all, it is nice to have the facts stated correctly. Elliott's date for the end
of wave ( IV ) was 1942, not 1946, and Bolton's date was 1949, not 1946. Second, each of these men
made it crystal clear that they viewed those years as
ending wave ( IV ) , which means all subdivisions from there must be of Cycle, not Supercycle degree.
Finally, the proper reference for this information is not a third party publication from 1955, but the actual
words of the authors. So if you want to know the whole story, read RN Elliott's Masterworks, RN
Elliott's Market Letters, and The Complete Elliott Wave writings of A. Hamilton Bolton, all of which are
available from Elliott Wave International in Gainesville, GA or from our web site at elliottwave.com.

Also relevant are the following pertinent facts: ( 1 ) Bolton made the first case against Elliott's 1942 date,
which I agree with, ( 2 )
according to Frost, Bolton changed his mind shortly after his own Bank Credit Analyst published Collins'
analysis in 1966 that properly labels 1932 as the low of wave ( IV ) . ( 3 ) Bolton's triangle works with the
inflation-adjusted DJIA, which point I made way back in 1980 ( see Appendix to Elliott Wave Principle ) .
However, that fact is NOT long-term bullish. In terms of real money ( gold ) , the DJIA has just climbed
back to its 1966 level, meaning that it is in the process of ending a B wave in those terms. See the
chart in Appendix C of At the Crest of the Tidal Wave. ( 4 ) The quantity ( extent ) of a wave does not
change its quality. The advance from 1974/1982 is a fifth wave in all respects. Just because it is large
does not mean that we should cast about for a different label. ( 5 ) As to Elliott's projection of a top in 2012,
he simply said that wave ( V ) would probably last about as long as wave ( III ) , which he counted from 1857
to 1928. 71 years added to 1941 ( the date he used, being a year early on his major bottom call ) gave
him 2012. However, I am quite sure that Elliott would not be defending this rough projection as a pinpoint
forecast were he alive today. As far as I'm concerned, it already qualifies as a great call by Elliott. His
point was that wave ( V ) would last decades, not just a few years. As a final note, it annoys me that
people do not cite their sources when they want to set up a phony conflict. Elliott's forecast chart is on
page 307 of RN Elliott's Masterworks, which I published and edited.--RP

In physics the old belief system generally does not die until the old believers do, it seems -- unless someone slips in some experimental result that gets out before anyone knows the consequences, and upsets the applecart.

Midas: Re: Your prediction about a session with Iraq. Are we talking about a brief sortie with stealth bombers, smart bombs and cruise missles? Or something more like the Kuwait war? My guess is that it will be mostly for show, rather than to eliminate Saddam -- unless priorities have changed. I wonder, do we know where the 5,000 gallons ( ? ) of Anthrax, the tons of VX nerve gas, and the x pounds on botulinum toxin are kept? I hope noone we like is downwind if we do. If these are all in hardened underground sites, I don't think we have anything non-nuclear that would work, despite the talk. Now -- if we had a kinetic orbital weapon with impact energy equal to a nuclear weapon -- that would work. But -- my guess is we don't have this -- not yet anyway.

Good thing we don't have any extraterrestrial antagonists, because a nice big asteroid kinetic weapon would make messy nuclear weapons obsolete.

I am a bit worried about Israel. If the battle with Iraq does not end quickly, the Israeli's might not stand by quietly this time while Saddam lobs a few missles with ( ? ) in them. The US doesn't have the firepower we had during the Kuwait war. Hope the Patroit missles work better, too!

Donald--I just stated that the S&L crisis was fixed. I did'nt say that I agreed with the way that it was fixed.
I think that you will have to admit that once the extent of the damage was known, prompt & effective action was taken. Totally unlike the situation in Japan that has been festering for at least a decade.
Even though they have their printing presses running full out, producing incredible amounts of Yen ( I think that on just 1 day they increased the # of yen in circulation by 1 % ) they are still pushing on a string.
Their bureaucracy & banks are totally corrupt & unfortunately their citizens will have to pay for the excesses & blunders. Far more on a per capita basis than was paid by the U.S. citizens IMO.

Steve in TO__A (Korean gold sales?) ID#209265:
Dear folks,

Thank you for all your helpful comments about the supposed Asian gold sales. I've recently seen some news that not only does Korea not even have 100 tonnes of gold to sell, as the FT article implied, but the gov't has announced that they will hold off selling any gold for 'at least a few months.' My guess is that they'll just use the gold donations to build up some gold reserves, since they can't raise them by selling US$ 'reserves' such as treasury debt.

What a ripoff for the average Joe. They sell their gold to the government, and get paid in devalued Won a few months later with a bond that has to be held to maturity.

Allen(USA) (spot price behavior in Ag/Au (6.09/302.5@close)) ID#246224:
I am appreciating the inter-day action on these markets. My take is that there are repeated and significant upside impulses followed by good consolidation periods which show little weakness ( as compared to November through December period ) . Australian's have tried to drive this market down a few times and basicly failed to do so ( wonder who is short or hungry for cash ) . The demand in Asia is a refreshing change ( in perception ) and hopefully it will consolidate into a change in long term investment pattern rather than a reactionary fling. Thailand to support a 'gold-bond' for savings? Now THAT is what we like to hear, eh? Pretty soon the other Asian countries will follow suit, no?

Tonight's COMEX numbers should be interesting indeed. FirstDayNotice tomorrow? Watch out world, wEBe watchin'. If this does not blow open in the next few days because of alot of contract deliveries, etc it still seems to me that we will have a continuing trend such as the past 10 days or so. At least I'm hoping so!

It is still very interesting to me that the futures market dwarfs the physical market and wags it around like a tail on a dog. The whole world has been commoditized I suppose. But the physical gold and silver situations seem to be operating in a vastly different mode than the paper world. Is it possible that gold and silver are in ascending demand when people continually sell the price down on paper? How can this be? Shouldn't increased demand for the physical be reflected in price increases? Truly 'Alice in Wonderland' stuff to me. Head hurtin' just tryin' ta think about it.

MARKET UPDATE ( 01/29/98 ) AM-----

ANALYSIS

The markets appeared to be biding their time with all eyes on the Greenspan testimony before Congress this
morning. Gold recovered from an attempt by the shorts to run it lower in yesterday's COMEX aftermarket. The
COMEX evening-, or after-, market is notoriously thin and the shorts attempted to turn the tide there to no avail.
When trading opened in Hong Kong, there was strong physical demand from both New York commission houses
and Japanese investors. The uptrend continued in London with strong hedge fund and bullion bank short covering,
as well as some hedge fund buying at these levels. Now as New York opens the shorts are back and the market is
down early. Underlying the short term battle over the gold price are three major factors to which gold's recent
strength can be attributed:

1. The strategy of aggressive, highly profitable short selling has been undermined by the Asian currency crisis. The
crisis created very strong demand throughout Asia -- the exact opposite of what the mainstream press has led us to
believe. USAGOLD sources tell us that the demand for gold coins of any kind in Asia is so strong that it is
beginning to affect the supply in Europe and the United States. In India for example, where a devaluation and
currency crisis in 1994 preceded the problems in the rest of Asia, public demand for gold is unprecedented. Now in
the rest of Asia a similar economic experience is creating substantial gold demand that is unlikely to wane. That
demand is new factor in the market that the shorts were not factoring into the equation. Watch for a sea change in
the gold market if the shorts are run out. Though they have been a formidable force in recent years, this could very
well be their last hurrah. Interestingly enough, in Thailand where the government sent out the military to collect
gold donations from the public, the talk this morning is about issuing bonds backed by gold collected from their
people -- another of many signs that the hoarding of gold by both individuals and nation states has become part of
the new economic policy. Along these lines, the Korean government, which emphasized in their gold collection
efforts that the gold would be used to pay down their outstanding international debt, has now switched gears and
announced that they will keep their gold for future, emergency use if needed.

2. The central banks of Europe have withdrawn from the market as gold sellers and lenders until at least after
summer, 1998 when Maastricht goes into effect. The Maastricht rules state that no central bank can dispose of gold
without the permission of the new European Central Bank. This is because the new currency is likely to be at least
5% -- possibly as high as 25% -- backed by the Midas metal. The recent situation with Italy where that country was
encouraged not to dispose of any gold is a very strong signal of the current attitudes toward gold in Europe. In
reality, given that Europe never was a major factor in the gold market on the supply side anyway, the policy with
regard to Italian gold sales is not surprising. The public pronouncements on gold from Europe are uniformly bullish
for the metal in the medium to long term and this has not been lost on either the paper short sellers in New York
and London, or the physical accumulators globally.

3. The mining companies which have been a major factor on the short side of the market have been criticized for a
form industrial suicide as they aggressively shorted the very commodity that literally put food on the table. This
morning Newmont announced laying off 500 workers and trimming operations. The junior companies are lined up
in succession peering into the abyss hoping that the company in back of them won't push them over the cliff. It's
time the mining companies became mining companies again instead of paper traders beefing up their balance sheets
by playing along with the short-sellers. Wiser and cooler heads may prevail in the long run, but the Walgreen
madness that has consumed the mining industry is not likely to go away. Until they wake up to what's happening
to them, my advice to mine company execs would be to keep those resumes updated and ready for submission.
There's going to be alot of people looking for jobs. As far as the gold market is concerned, the mine closures etc
mean less gold reaching the market and less gold to be shorted in the future. They will continue to sell forward but
it will be interesting to see if they have enough gold to cap the market. Also along these lines, if the central banks
are not willing to lend, the mines cannot borrow. This obvious conundrum has been lost in all the recent discussion
on gold but it is an obviously important fundamental factor.

We will forego much discussion on today's markets because of the time spent on the above analysis and leave this
on over the weekend for all fellow gold-meisters to read.

Still I go with the Maple. If you want the US$310 backing go to the Mountie ( Canada ) recently released. Has a 3 year buy back garrantee from the Canadian mint at US$310 each. I like the idea of a coin ( in good condition ) because its pretty easy to tell if its been tampered with. The 1 troy ounce weight is nice, not too small. Has that heft to it. No one will ask that you to send it to a refiner to prove it. Almost looks like money as do all the bullion coins.

RE: ROYAL OAK MINES.
I bought Royal Oak Mines back in 1993
for 1.70. I held it up until the time
POG reached 400.00, and then sold it
at 5.75.

RYO has a female CEO who is touogh as nails
and as smart as could be expected.
It is a well managed company.

The problem is, they have a bunch of
mines that are not profitable when
POG is 300.00. They are a high cost
producer.

Their new mine is supposed to be a low cost
producer.

In my book, there are better prospects
who have found mineral deposits in
other parts of the world where the
cost of production will be FAR less
than RYO.

BUT---If POG hits $400.00 +, you can buy
at todays prices and douoble your
money with RYO.

A better buy would be CANARC which is
a Canadian stock listed in Toronto.
It's an exploration company with HOT
prospects. Buy now at .50 cents
and if POG goes to 400.00 + you will
have quadrupled your money.

Canarc has a JV with PDG on an elephant

White House sex scandal raises questions over US role as world leader
DAVOS, Switzerland, Jan 29 ( AFP ) - Economic experts attending
the World Economic Forum here raised questions Thursday about the
United States'a bility to fulfill its role as world leader when
President Bill Clinton is embroiled in a steamy sex scandal.
The hot spots of the world do not include the sexual
relationships in the White House, Richard Haass, director of
foreign policy studies at the Brookings Institution told a seminar
on geopolitical priorities on the first day of the annual meeting in
this Swiss ski resort.
But the White House sex scandal is already being talked about
here as US First Lady Hillary Clinton is due to address the
assembled world political and financial leaders here on Monday on
the theme of individual and collective priorities for the coming
century.
Analysts at Thursday's symposium saw the whole story of Bill
Clinton's alleged sexual relationship with a White House intern as
symptomatic of the difficulty of finding someone with the true
stature of a world leader capable of dealing with rising tensions in
Iraq, the Middle East, Asia and other areas.
In the absence of international institutions able to control an
increasingly integrated world, the only alternative is the USA,
said Dominique Moisi, deputy director of the French Institute for
international relations.
But this provincial empire is dragging its feet when it comes
to fully assuming its international responsibilities, Moisi said.
American citizens know more about the geography of the White
House than the geography of the world.
The biggest dilemma for us is there is nothing you can do
without the US, but what can you do with the US alone? Moisi
added.
Haas said the real risk is not that the United States will start
acting like the world's policemen, but that it will turn in on
itself in a new wave of isolationism.
He cited the US Congress' reluctance to authorise a fresh
injection of US funds into the International Monetary Fund to refill
its coffers after the massive aid programme for Asia, and its
refusal to give Clinton permanent fast track powers to push through
international trade agreements.
Japan's economic and political crisis in particular may cause a
protectionist backlash in the United States if Tokyo chooses to
massively boost exports to try to turn things around, Haass said.
The worst scenario would be a paralysed US leadership coupled
with a Japanese crisis.
Other analysts pointed to other issues where US leadership, or
lack of it, will be crucial -- the emergence of China as a world
economic power and its integration into the international community,
the decline of Russia, the globalisation of world markets, terrorism
and organised crime.
Business leaders had more immediate concerns about the current
White House scandal.
When Mr. Clinton misbehaves, the dollar falls. We sell in
dollars and we prefer a strong dollar, said one senior official of
a European aeronautics company, who asked not to be named.

Monday Jan 26 1998
The Globe and Mail reports in its Monday, January 26, edition that the
ay Keh Dene band is going back to court to stop construction of Royal Oak Mines' $390 million gold and copper mine in northern BC. A Canadian press dispatch to the Globe says the band wants compensation for the mine being built on its traditional territory, 350km northwest of Prince George. The band, frustrated with mediation talks with the province and Royal Oak, has decided to go ahead with a BC Supreme Court action it had put on hold and add two more. The band hopes to have a date soon for a BC Supreme Court judicial review. The band argues the mine's environmental approval was tainted and the band was inadequately

The band filed a new claim last week in Supreme Court saying the mine is based on an unconstitutional infringement of the Tsay Keh Dene's aboriginal title. It seeks damages for wrongful expropriation of its interests as well as any profits the province stands to gain.

JCI Limited has routinely sold forward 10 to 15 per cent of production.
The most recent contract was for Western Areas Gold Mine, in which 7,3
million ounces were hedged in order to develop the South Deep project.
The group's H.J. Joel Gold Mine is also considering selling forward its
entire gold output in order to finance its capital expansion phase, to
be implemented by 2001. Randgold recently unwound many of its hedges and
has replaced them with flat currency forwards in both Rands and Dollars.

Thank you earl, and myrmidon, and EB, and Midas, and

have known that. Also Polarbear, and aurator, and brave
oris ( You would always be safe with Oris as Backup ) all

jokes, or Catholic when in Chartres, or fundamentalist
in Georgia, or Greek orthodox on Tinos, or Russian orthodox

in the Japanese countryside. I am easily assimilated.
As for my poor sancho panza of the desert, zebediyah
the dwarf, what can I say of him. He MUST develop
himself and have generosity of spirit. He will receive as
he gives. He must develop GRACE. Until he does he will
trail behind my caravan in the hot sun.
Hepcat LGB and others have good minds and work hard and
are good and worthy people - they must seek and find the
grace within themselves - Thank you brothers for your time -
For the KEEN EYED FRONT - al'lah showed me the way to
avoid double spacing - I was lost now I am found.
For Pookie - Ive played many games of backgammon with
the sephardic Jews of turkey. They are wonderful and
have never had a beef with the muslim.
But these prickly pears are doing their work. I must

EB- Saw your post. The baby boomer earnings will peak around 2010, and seriously think about retirement not long after -- with SocSecurity essentially bankrupt. That will definitely stop the US economy if Congress has not put aside some savings for that rainy day. Very unlikely they will do anything. Gold will then soar about that time.

However, I think we will have some major market surprises long before 2005 or so. Did you know that Tenet, the CIA director just stated that there is a big security leak in our Government, and it is in the Executive branch? Also -- why did the Paula Jones lawsuit fly though the Supreme Court? It sounds almost completely harmless on the surface -- nothing was actually done to anyone -- and yet BC must go to court while in office. Did you see that Clinton's lawyers now want to expedite the Paula Jones case, when only a few weeks ago they were stonewalling?

I think we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg, and all of this will unravel when Starr is able to question BC's secret service agents. Given the press feeding frenzy right now, I think Starr will have a much easier time with witnesses and information gathering of all kinds -- and this will bring down the markets.

JTF (Noticed your comments about the 'battle of the currencies') ID#57232:
SDRer: I find it amazing that there is even 'talk' about a G3. Frank Veneroso thinks that the main reason for the gold bear was that France and Germany had unilaterally decided to wrest control of the gold reserves of the EURO, and that Belgium and the Netherlands then decided their gold was 'worthless' and sold it.

This does not sound like a democratic approach that would lead to that Utopian 'New World Order', does it?

Now not only India is talking about gold savings accounts, but also something similar for Thailand. I think it is pretty clear that the first gold-backed currency ( al la BIS ) will be a South East Asian one. The Americans and Europeans will try to prevent this, but they will eventually be forced to come up with a similar solution. Has G Soros said anything about wanting to learn Chinese?

Someone posted this morning that liquidity in Malasia had virtually dried up. Malaysia has ( had? ) one of the strongest economies in SEAsia. I think this answers part of the question of whether we will have an immediate flood of cheap goods on US shores -- perhaps not, because one must have international cash flow for trade to occur. Hence if this is the main problem in SEAsia, inflation in the US will be the most likely result, not deflation. Inflation because of the need to increase liquidity in SEAsia ( this is already happening ) , and inflation because the supply of cheap foreign goods has dropped off. Is this why the commodity price index is rising? I wonder -- does anyone know how much trade has dropped off between SEAsia, and the rest of the world?

What wild times we live in!

ANALYSIS

The markets appeared to be biding their time with all eyes on the Greenspan testimony
before Congress this morning. Gold recovered from an attempt by the shorts to run it
lower in yesterday's COMEX aftermarket. The COMEX evening-, or after-, market is
notoriously thin and the shorts attempted to turn the tide there to no avail. When
trading opened in Hong Kong, there was strong physical demand from both New York
commission houses and Japanese investors. The uptrend continued in London with
strong hedge fund and bullion bank short covering, as well as some hedge fund
buying at these levels. Now as New York opens the shorts are back and the market is
down early.

Pookie@Aussi (John Disney - Islam) ID#22157:
...Remember to respect the Jews as well as the Christians for we all believe in the same one God... Mohammad the illiterate camel driver himself taught his followers tolerance towards other religions, as did Jesus, even Moses and every other spiritual master. Noone can prove which religion is right, but this is not the issue. I was brought up as a Catholic and subsequently renounced this religion for I do not believe that any religious teaching has the right to take possession of ones soul and subject any human to serfdom. I have found that all religions have a common source reaching back to the early days of human history, for the basic truth of religion is always the same, as taught by Jesus the Christ at his Sermon on the Mount. Islam for example has brought us the enlightened sufis ( Dervishes ) , however like most religions it has been distorted by powerhungry individuals for their own needs. Did Jesus ever ask to take to the sword


As for John Disney, I very much enjoy your posts, they make it so much easier to read an otherwise dry subject. They so much reflect the colorful way the people of the Mediterranean and Middle East countries express themselves.


I myself have travelled through the Sahara desert, it truly teaches you to be humble again. The experience of a lunch hosted by a local Tuareg in Tamanrasset I will never forget.


Bukra enshal'lah, tomorrow, God willing, we will all understand the true meaning of religion. Remember, believers and infidel, Christians and Muslims, that Heavenly Kingdom is within you!

Christianity started with Jesus Christ 600 years before Mohammad fantasized on Mt. Hira! Whatever is good in the ethical teachings of Islam comes from these earlier monotheistic religions.

I can't agree with your comment last night that the S & L crisis was solved. My opinion is that it has only been postponed and pushed into the future for our children. The current stock market run-up is a direct result of the Fed solution. Stick it to the savers by forcing down passbook interest rates to 1.5 -2.0%. Force feeding the banks cheap money to restore capital requirements. Older people counted on that income to live on. In desperation they go over to the other window in the same S&L that promises higher yield. They mistakenly think that those accounts are insured. Much of that money went to Asia. The stock crash will wipe them out.

tman (Gold Open Interest) ID#373346:
This is a very interesting situation which is occuring on Gold's Open Interest figures. Most here believe that since open interest has been falling that it is bearish. I disagree. I believe that what we are seeng here is a fundamental change in philosophy and momentum. High open interest serves no other purpose than to tell you that there are alot of open orders yet to be closed.

My take: As the price has risen, open interest has fallen. I think this is bullish. If the price were to fall or stay the same as open interest fell, then that would be bearish.

Study any graph on any commodity and you will find a strong correlation between open interest and price over the intermediate time frame as I have said.

If gold keeps rising and O.I. keeps falling, this is bullish.
If gold keeps rising and O.I. rises, this is bearish. This would signal commercials going short.

Straddler (Gold SHORT-TERM direction OPINIONS) ID#280215:
To: APH, FundaMETALIST, OLD GOLD, other technicians

I read APHs post yesterday about the read on where gold might be going next in the short term. I don't want to beat a dead horse, but I noticed that again on a decent rally, open interest fell over 5,000 contracts. If you look at a gold chart from Jan 12 to now, the direction is almost straight up. Looking at open interest for the same time period, it shows the direction straight down. Due to the large volume of short-covering, this might continue more up to the 320 area as some have noted. However, this will more than likely be followed by a steep drop.

From what I've read on E-Wave, the wave 1 up usually is a result of a change in market tone and a large volume of short-covering since most are now convinced that the tone has changed. APH noted that the next downturn might ( 50/50 ) go to new lows. My question is: do any of you see this next downturn as a wave 2 that will retrace most but not all of the recent wave 1 up, or do you see this latest up move as a wave C, with a new leg down and new lows to come. Let me stress that I mean short term ( next few weeks ) . Thank you in advance for any opinions you may have.

The group had a cash loss of 26 mill rand after

lower gold price. Also part of their costs have been
one off retrenchment payments as they continue to
cut staff. Their actual oprating loss was almost
breakeven down to 657,000 Rand from 17 million the
prior quarter. This makes a loss of 26/39 = 0.66 R/share
versus 47/39 = 1.2 R/share the prior quarter at a
higher gold price.
This stock looks marvellous but it needs a higher
gold price. It still looses 0.13$/sh*39/.285= about

vronsky (YEAR OF THE TIGER - 29 January 1998) ID#427357:

Per Chinese culture the Year of the Tiger which greets us today every 12th year is synonymous with CHANGE and STRENGTH. Indeed it was so the last Year of the Tiger - 1986.

The dawn of the last Year of the Tiger saw a low in the price of Chuk Kam ( GOLD ) of $330 per troy ounce. It heralded a dramatic reversal in the price trend of precious yellow... for during the next two years the Midas metal soared relentlessly to a high or $502, reached in December 1987. An increase of over 52%.

Historically, gold and silver stocks as a group appreciate 3-4 TIMES GREATER than the percent increase in the value of bullion. Should history repeat, we are talking an increased XAU value of 156% to 240% - POSSIBLY BEFORE THE MILLENNIUM. And one would expect many individual gold and silver stocks to zoom far more.

The above scenario would mirror the STRENGTH characteristic of the Year of the Tiger. About the CHANGE? Well, we are all watching IT as I speak... of course I am referring to the dramatic economic, financial and monetary CHANGE sweeping through all Asia. The resulting domino Effect is currently extending to distant shores... for example, most industrialized nations reducing GNP growth estimates for 1998, Deutsche Bank ( Germany’s largest ) talking about “restructuring” due to its horrendous losses incurred in its Asian Loan Portfolio, Switzerland’s UBS brought to humble take-over by Swiss Bank Corp. due to its Korean “Adventures,” the Mexican Peso on the verge of another massive devaluation, China daily denying the possibility of a 25%-40% devaluation, and ad nauseam. YES, we are all undergoing draconian CHANGE, and IN SPADES!

Interestingly, GOLD has been demonstrating all the earmarks of STRENGTH... LONG LIVE THE TIGER!

For My brother Winston -
You know me from the past my brother. But men change..
only Al'lah remains constant. In my mind, I have returned
to the desert that extends from The Rub Al Khali north
to Bagdad and Damascus. I have come here to improve my
manners which I feel have roughened in the West and
to further my studies of the Use of Numbers to assist my
thinking. Mathematics simplifies and clarifies. I see that
many in the Kitco clan prefer to impose their opinions
on others through the use of excessive verbiage or
even abuse. I too have fallen prey to that Western ill.
No more will I shoot from the hip, as you say. My
William Bonney days are past ( my reflexes have slowed
and my eyesight dimmed ) .
The desert has delights - In Al Khobar I ate well of
the desert prickly pear which is well known to improve
male performance. I took a dozen boxes along with me
for I travel now South to the Slave markets of Musqat,
Where I understand a new consignment of young
Circassian women are on offer. I wish to spend a small
portion of my profits on Durban deep which have doubled
in price in a short time. It is not that I am a voluptuary,
dear brother, but man was not born to live alone. This
mad smelly dwarf Zebediyah that trails me is amusing
of course, but in the long run he offers cold comfort.
You ask for information on durban deep - The
new company has 39 million shares. I heard zebediyah
bellow about dilution by options, but I think the
striking price is at best 40 rands or perhaps even 60,
im not sure. Since we are only around 15 or so rands now
I would hardly worry about that.
The reserves of the group are 449 million tons of
underground ore at a grade of 7.8 gm/ton, and 116 million
tons of surface ore at 0.6 gm/ton. This calculates to be
an astonishing 118 million oz of gold reserves. 118/38 =
3 oz/share which when compared with royal oak or mighty
ABX makes one shake with amazement. The costs however
are high - I had thought they were in the region of
350 $/oz. But I think they may be restructuring to
reduce costs, enshal'lah.
I expect their results shortly, and I will humbly
provide the information when it falls into my hands.
I surely would not suggest anyone purchase a stock
in South Africa. Although the country has a fine
infrastructure, wild beasts and unfriendly natives
abound, and one must always be watchful.
Peace effimdim, I move on to musqat, enshal'lah

Silver Prices Lose Ground On Price-Fixing Allegations

By BETSY DOWLING and NICHOLAS ELLIOTT

Dow Jones Newswires

NEW YORK -- A lawsuit was filed, as expected, over last year's spike in
silver-futures prices.

The suit, which was filed in U.S. District Court in New York and seeks class-action status, alleges that Phibro -- the commodities-trading arm of Salomon Smith Barney Inc. -- and 10 other unnamed defendants, acted to
manipulate silver prices higher during the rally last year.

News of the suit, which has been anticipated for some weeks, pushed
down silver futures at the Comex division of the New York Mercantile
Exchange. The March contract fell five cents to $6.053 a troy ounce, although it recovered from a loss of 28.5 cents at midsession.

The suit is on behalf of Kerry Seale, a citizen of British Columbia and the sole proprietor of a company called Golden Harvest Co. It was filed by Christopher Lovell of the Lovell & Stewart law firm in New York.

Phibro, through its general counsel Mike Young, rejected the allegations of price manipulation in the suit as egregious. It denied removing silver from Comex warehouses in the past 18 months and moving it to England or elsewhere, and denied acting in concert with other market participants. The company also said it is considering our own lawsuits
against the persons behind these unfounded allegations.

Golden Harvest's suit claims that Phibro and the other defendants forced Comex silver futures up to artificially high levels in the second half of last year through moving silver from Comex warehouses to nonreporting black hole locations in England and elsewhere.

The suit says some trades by the defendants were carried out through
Republic National Bank of New York, and it says J.P. Morgan and Credit Suisse held silver for the defendants in London. None of the banks are listed as defendants in the suit, and there's no claim they were involved in market manipulation. J.P. Morgan and Republic refused comment, while no spokesman was available at Credit Suisse.

Comex silver stocks fell by 90 million ounces between late May and the end of 1997. To support the case that price manipulation occurred, the suit also points to an unprecedented divergence between silver prices and copper and gold prices.

Such claims about artificially high silver prices have been keenly debated since last December, when prices rallied sharply, hitting an eight-and-a-half year high of $6.378 an ounce during intraday trading on Dec. 24.

Some analysts argue that the rise in silver prices was a reflection of tight supplies and solid demand. Among those is Jeffrey Christian, managing director of New York consulting firm CPM Group. I think it [the action] is garbage and at the end of the day it will be a nonevent, Mr. Christian said.

Timothy Porter, commodities analyst at Refco Inc. in New York, said the news of the lawsuit was unlikely to weigh on the market for long. The fundamentals alone will keep prices propped up pretty well, Mr. Porter said.

Global Intelligence Update

January 29, 1998

Japan and Russia Seek Closer Military Cooperation

Japan and Russia are moving ahead rapidly with plans for increased military
cooperation that were outlined during a November, 1997, summit between
Russian President Boris Yeltsin and Japanese Prime Minister Ryutaro
Hashimoto. Masahiro Akiyama, Deputy Head of the Japanese National Defense
Agency, in Russia this week for a series of meetings with top level Russian
defense officials, announced on Wednesday that Japan would reduce its
military forces on Hokkaido by over 20 percent. Russian Defense Minister
Igor Sergeyev in turn vowed to further reduce Russia's military presence in
the Kurile Islands. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, forces on
the Kuriles have already been cut by over half.

During closed door talks in Moscow, Akiyama, Sergeyev, Admiral Vladimir
Kuroyedov, Commander in Chief of the Russian Navy, and Leonid Ivashov, Head
of the Defense Ministry's Chief Department for International Military
Cooperation, discussed issues of security in Northeast Asia and prospects
for closer Russo-Japanese defense cooperation in the Far East. Akiyama
announced that he regarded the meetings as a major success. He stated that
Tokyo was interested in military-technological cooperation with Russia, bu
was being held back by Japan's self-imposed restrictions on the transfer of
military technology. Akiyama proceeded to discount those restrictions,
stating, The world is changing, however, and I hope that such cooperation
will be possible in the future.

Akiyama's visit is but the first in a string of military exchanges
scheduled for this year. Japanese military pilots will travel to Russia in
February to train to fly Sukhoi Su-27 fighters. Working groups from the
Russian Navy and the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Forces ( JMSDF ) are
scheduled to meet in March to coordinate future contacts and joint naval
maneuvers. The Commander of Russia's Pacific Fleet, Mikhail Zakharenko,
will meet in April with the JMSDF Chief of Staff. The Head of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff of the Japanese National Defense Agency, Admiral Kazui
Natsukawa, will visit Moscow in May, and the Head of the Russian Armed
Forces General Staff, Anatolii Kvashnin, will make a return visit to Japan
several months thereafter. In a move demonstrating that current pragmatic
reality has vanquished memories of 1905, Kuroyedov invited a ship of the
JMSDF to participate in celebrations of Russian Navy Day in July.

Russo-Japanese relations are surging ahead along non-military fronts as
well. Russian Foreign Ministry official Alexander Losyukov announced on
Monday that an agreement on Japanese fishing rights around the Kuriles
would be signed in a matter of days. Japan's Michinoku Bank, which
specializes in financing trade between Japan and Russia's Far East, will
open a Moscow branch in June, making it the first fully Japanese-owned bank
with offices in Russia. Russian cabinet minister Irina Khakamada on
January 22 called on Japan to assist in bolstering small and mid-sized
Russian businesses. Finally, Japanese and Russian officials are meeting
this week in Moscow to discuss joint exploitation of Russia's Siberian
natural gas reserves.

That Japan and Russia are rushing into each other's arms is not surprising.
Both are feeling intense pressure from the same source--the United States.
Confident, at least for the time being, in the Soviet Union's collapse,
Washington no longer sees the need to suffer economic hardship from Japan
in exchange for Pacific containment of Russia. The U.S. has lost interest
in Vladivostok, and so is free to deal with Japan as it would any other
economic competitor. Japan, which held a special relationship with the
United States for 40 years, now feels maltreated. Russia, fractured and
driven back from Europe, is now turning its attentions East--first to China
and now to Japan. We do not believe that Japan is merely signaling to
Washington a desire for special favors. Tokyo is attempting to wrest
itself, and the Western Pacific, away from Washington's sway. For now,
this means a closer relationship with Russia and perhaps China. What
happens when Russia, Japan, and China each try to assert leadership of this
triumvirate and dominance of East Asia, we will have to wait and see.

Well didn't our little Aussie golds shine today!!! I have been tradin' my buns off and am cellar-brating a 6% rise in you know what shares to make 15 % in three days. If you had the right ones--double that. Brag-time folks. On the 26th Jan. we were talkin about gold shares and I was persuaded to mention a junior or two for me Kitco mates ( with a bit of arm twisting ) and I did drop a little hint about Laverton Gold. Of course I ain't so dumb as to mention something here unless I've ALREADY bought heaps myself. George Soros might be lurking. Well happy campers, those little beauties ( LVG ) have doubled in price in four days--sooooooooooo, seeing as how I never saw a profit I didn't like, I sold half and have a free ride on the balance. Also sold half of all my other gold shares as I just couldn't help myself with all that $$$ staring me in the face. Now if you have read this far don't blame me as I am slightly inebriated and you have been warned. I guess besides bragging--the point I have to make is DON'T GET TOO GREEDY!!!!!!!!!!

The most extraordinary feature or RYO must be the CEO
Margaret Witte, 43, is the best-paid chief
executive of any publicly owned company in Washington state, according to a list in the
latest issue of Washington CEO magazine.

As CEO of Kirkland-based Royal Oak Mines, she earns a cool $1.72 million a year.

Not only that. Witte -- whose company reported a loss of $37.63 million in the second
quarter -- earns more than Boeing CEO Phil Condit and owns stock in her company worth
more than Condit's stake in Boeing.

When asked where the physical silver was stashed, Bunker stated that they could go to HELL'en Hunt.

John Disney__A (THE DWARF SEBEDIYAH RETURNS - God is Great) ID#24135:
For Brother Oris ( and ROR and DEJ )
I was overjoyed to receive your message and to hear
of your newfound piety. Your return to the fold of
Al'lah may have been just in time. For he is merciful.
La elaha El'la al'lah - there is no god but al'lah and
he is great Al'lah O akbar.
I trust now that your prayer WILL be answered ( in view
of the $20 particularly ) and 10 million oz of new
reserves will be found in the frozen wastes of kemess.
If al'lah is willing Enshal'lah - That will bring the
NEW reserves of ryo to 15 MILLION oz. Divide by
139 million shares and we have 0.1 oz per share.
versus ABX 0.25 oz per share. Fortuitous as abx sells
at 20 $ - so you thus believe ryo would rise to 20/2.5= $8.
But of course we have the problem of the capital
required to develope the field. I do not concern
myself with the cost of production for although The
last 9 months figures display a satanic cost of ( i
forget was it $US 460/oz ) ROR has assured me that these
will quickly fall to $320 average cost and that all
the difference is accounted for by extraordinary
items. Although The 320 number is STILL terribly
high I trust it will be reduced to practically nothing
by the high productivity and outstanding management so
common in NA.
I expect to see this good fortune expressed in RYO's
results for the december quarter which should soon be
released. I will weep with joy to see these figures. In
the meantime, I will check the history of RYO to see if
extraordinary items are a way of life with them ( as I
find to be the case in a few NA mining companies ) .
Dear brothers - I never dared to imply that your
investments in RYO were ill advised. It was simply that
I was led astray by my foolish numbers, and grew
worried for the well being of your investments. Forgive
me. I never meant to concern you.
I was worried about the Dwarf Zebediyah - alone at
night in the desert. But he keens and giggles and plays
happily now outside my tent. Ugly as the poor wretch is, he
still provides company in this lonely desert as I now
approach the Empty Quarter. I gave him scraps from my humble
meal wrapped in newsprint from the paper I bought in Dam'man.
He stares at it now in the morning haze on the desert,
and he pretends to be a great banker, but lo - he holds the
paper upside down. How Bizarre. I shake with mirth.
Al'lah is indeed great. al'lah O akbar

The grounds for the silver lawsuit are overtly preposterous...beyond ludicrous. Even the infamous Hunt brothers never would have resorted to such a stupid, unwieldy scam.

I seriously wonder if there is one shred of hard copy evidence attesting to the alleged malfeasance by Philbro. Based upon my readings, all the allegations are based upon heresay ( and sour grapes ) . Golden Harvest in Canada had a great spec history in commodities but seems to have lost a bundle shorting Ag...tough, isn't it?

If allegations are thrown out of court, then there will be at least a .70-1.00 same-day burst in silver...guaranteed!

Not trying to provoke, simply don't understand why you have such a low opinion of japanese, just because their culture is different of your own does not make them inferior, they are not as materialistic as westerners.
To speak on a nation, they are one who were defeated in the second world war, and are 2nd largest economy. Show me victors of the war who have done better in such a short time span. U.S. copied there manufacturing techniques after U.S. was getting but kick in production.

Just because someone does not have the same wants as you, does not make them ignorant, small minded, or feeble. Infact it could be said that of person who wants everything, ( material ) yet ends up with nothing ( mental )

As for coruption, take off your blinders, I would suggest that their still learning that from us. Honor is a big thing their, more apt to kill themselves out of shame, not lie blantently.

We shall soon see what culture holds up better under economic stresses.

You ask how are the Japanese going to compete vs korea. You must
remember Japan is ,was , will be a huge investor in korea and all over
Asia. As far as no Japanese consumers, they don't need them, just look at the Billions of Indian, Chineese, Indonesians etc...in all Asia, ME,
even Europe, and Africa. Japan is not restricted to the US there are plenty of consumers world wide remember the key is the world trading system which is and has been based on trade in US$, once that trading system is challenged and new trading blocks and currencies ( GOLD ) emerge, It's a whole new game.....ALL of course JMHO

There is no that doubt there is a lot of corruption in the U.S. & other western economies, but nothing that compares with Japan. The big advantage that the U.S. has is the relative transparency in the mkts.

How many years have the Japanese been trying to deal with their banking & other problems & they just keep getting worse? A perfect example is the rapidity with which the U.S. dealt with the S&L crisis & fixed it. I wish them luck, but as I've stated before because of many reasons, especially demographics which is tha main reason for their proclivity to save & not consume,they are in a real financial quagmire with no resolution in sight. And now the crisis in asia makes their recovery that much more problematic. How are they going to compete against Korea & those other Countries with such a strong Yen?

BTW, I never stated that I expected AU to go to the moon. I just look for trading opportunities & think we will be lucky to get over 320 for any length of time in 98. If I'm wrong I'll still do O.K., but not as well as you people who are much more positive than me.

Forrest Gump /All

Anyone heard update tonnage on Korea and Thai gold *donations*? There was a big fanfare in the first week, 17 tons ( ? ) how much has now been collected. The absence of news could suggest another chimera? How does this square with Vronsky’s post earlier of a new Korean derivative gold market?

BTW Forrest, it is too easy to look upon what is happening in Korea with round eyes. In Korea, respect for one’s ancestors and one’s past is still paramount, allegiance to the state and belief in the common good take preference to individual rights. These are two ready reasons why Koreans will give some, but not all their gold to their governments. I believe those who do not give all their gold will feel shame and prefer not to discuss this matter, at least, for now...The fact will certainly be kept hidden, but I may be corrected on these.matters...

farfel (THE FINAL DAY OF RAMADAN IS HERE...GOLD TO BLAST-OFF NOW!!) ID#28585:
As described in the news article below, Ramadan ends today. Prayer and meditation are over in the Arab world and Holy action is to be expected.

Unfortunately, the smell of war is in the air and, in all likelihood, a Mid-East confrontation will not be limited to Iraq this time around. Look for Libya to enter the fray ( almost certain ) . If there is a battle and it is protracted and messy for any reason, then a real possibility exists that other Arab nations may pull the plug on oil supplies to America. Although the Arabs are generally factionalized, they share one thing in common...a thing that is fast becoming epidemic around the world today: general detestation of rich, fat Americans. Having a clear-cut scapegoat does remarkable things in uniting a non-cohesive group.

In any case, proxy purchases of military arms ( via sales of gold and oil )
should be completed now and so, there should be little downside risk in the prices of these two commodities from this point on. As I have stated repeatedly these past few weeks ( to the derision of others on this forum ) , anybody shorting gold today in this extremely dangerous international climate is either a lunatic or has balls of steel...I don't know which.

Rothschild (college funds) ID#408246:
Midas,

Please do not take this as specific investment advice but here are a couple of examples of gold related paper. Hecla Mining has a convertible preferred issue that can be converted at the option of the holder into 3.215 shares of Hecla common. Under current circumstances this would not make sense because the common stock is so depressed. While you wait, however, you get about a 7.5 % return on investment. The stock trades a about $46 a share and can be called for conversion by the company at a price of $52.10 after 6/30/98, not very likely in the near term. If gold prices really take off this old line mining outfit might glitter once again and conversion might not be so terrible. Agnico-Eagle mines, a Canadian mine, has a convertible bond that matures in 2004 and at the current price has a yield to maturity of about 12 %. Each bond can be converted into 55.762 shares of common stock or is callable by the company at $890 per bond ( it was issued at a discount ) . At aprice of about $620 per bond, if they call it soon, ( won't happen ) the return is quite acceptable. As long as the company doesn't default, the gold price will eventually go up from market forces or will be raised by governments as a means to arrest a devastating deflation. Don't know what your situation is but you would be best served to talk to a knowledgable broker before buying into this kind of investment. Also, if you don't want to get too cute, there is nothing wrong with buying into some of the gold mutual funds or just buy some bullion coins. Good luck.
