The drums of war

I think the most serious sign that war of some kind with Iran is imminent is the recent decision of UBS to close its Iranian accounts. I don’t pay much attention to Fox News taking polls showing that 65 percent of Americans believe that invading Lithuania is justified – seriously, I really want to see a poll taken in conjunction with one of these attack justification polls just to see if there’s any difference depending on whether the target is Iran, Israel, France or Brazil – but the gnomes of Zurich are very, very serious about their money.

If they’re sending all that oil money back to Iran, they know something is up. And the fact that this happened the week before that all the world leaders were in Davos for the World Economic Forum may be a coincidence, but I rather doubt it.

Drums, drums, in the deep.
