Post Date: 2022-11-04 15:56:10 by Horse

Iran has allegedly already transferred a number of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to Russia. Many of these drones have been used in Ukraine, although the Islamic Republic has denied involvement.

During the meeting, bin Madi complained to the American military officials about the Sana’a-based National Salvation Government’s decision to ban the Saudi-led coalition from exporting the Yemeni crude oil, asserting that the decision ...

The US has funneled more than $1 billion into Afghanistan since the fall of Kabul with zero accountability
Post Date: 2022-11-03 20:29:46 by Horse
The U.S. government has funneled more than $1.1 billion in taxpayer dollars into Afghanistan since the Taliban took control of the country in August 2021 with minimal oversight or accountability according to the watchdog responsible for overseeing U.S.-led reconstruction efforts there. A new report from the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) notes that the watchdog, for the first time since it was established in 2008, is unable “to provide Congress and the American people with a full accounting of this U.S. government spending due to the non-cooperation of several U.S. government agencies.” Those agencies include the United States Agency for ...

Gold Market Roiled As Mystery Buyer Waves In 300 Tonnes
Post Date: 2022-11-03 20:05:49 by Horse
As The Fed has tightened monetary policy at its most aggressive pace in over 40 years, real rates in the US have soared (back into strong positive territory). Historically, that has reduced demand for gold (zero carry) but as the chart below, gold - while notably off its highs - has not cratered as much as some might have expected... “With that weight of selling, I was a bit surprised gold wasn’t weaker,” said Ross Norman, chief executive officer of Metals Daily, an information portal focusing on precious metals. But, thanks to a normally dry research report from The World Gold Council, perhaps we know why gold has not fallen as much... First, as we noted recently, ...

No Pain, No Grain: Putinís Black Sea Comeback
Post Date: 2022-11-03 08:58:44 by Ada
So, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan picks up the phone and calls his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin: let’s talk about the “grain deal.” Putin, cool, calm and collected, explains the facts to the Sultan: First, the reason why Russia withdrew from the export grain deal. Second, how Moscow seeks a serious investigation into the – terrorist – attack on the Black Sea fleet, which for all practical purposes seems to have violated the deal. And third, how Kiev must guarantee it will uphold the deal, brokered by Turkey and the UN. Only then would Russia consider coming back to the table. And then – today, 2 November – the coup de theatre: ...

What's Throwing The US Diesel Market Out Of Whack: A Primer
Post Date: 2022-11-02 09:48:13 by Horse
By Housley Carr of RBN Energy The U.S. market for distillates has been crazy the past few months — especially in PADD 1 — and given all that’s going on, it’s likely to stay that way for months to come. Inventories of ultra-low-sulfur diesel, heating oil and other distillates are at their lowest levels for this time of year since before the EIA started tracking them 40 years ago and diesel prices are in the stratosphere, all despite diesel crack spreads being in record-high territory — a strong incentive for refineries to churn out more distillate. In today’s RBN blog, we discuss the many factors affecting distillate supply, demand, inventories and prices and ...

The Ever Widening War
Post Date: 2022-11-02 09:15:25 by Ada
American soldiers are now in Ukraine. Allegedly, they are there only to monitor what is happening to the arms deliveries from the US and NATO countries. As previously reported, not all of the vast amount of heavy weapons sent by the West end up on the battlefield. Instead, some find their way into the weapons market where they are sold to who for who’s profit? The same with the money, much of which ends up in unintended pockets. The US State Department’s explanation is that the US troops are in Ukraine, not to fight, but to “assist the government of Ukraine with handling US security assistance.” In other words, to identify and stop the theft of resources meant for ...

A Crippling Shortage Of Diesel Fuel Threatens To Devastate Western Economies In 2023
Post Date: 2022-11-02 08:20:15 by DWornock
A Crippling Shortage Of Diesel Fuel Threatens To Devastate Western Economies In 2023 October 30, 2022 by Michael In my entire lifetime, global supplies of diesel fuel have never been tighter than they are right now. And that is really bad news, because the entire economy of the western world runs on diesel. If we suddenly had no more diesel fuel, virtually all of our trains, trucks and ships would stop running. Needless to say, just about everything that stocks our store shelves comes to us via trains, trucks and ships. So the fact that there is not enough diesel fuel to go around is a really big deal. Supplies have been declining for months, and at this point diesel inventories have ...

"It's Already Happening" - Roubini Warns "World War III Has Effectively Begun"

Economist Nouriel Roubini, who's been dubbed 'Dr. Doom' for his gloomy-yet-correct prediction of the 2008 market meltdown, is making headlines again during a series of interviews promoting his new book "Megathreats". "We have to worry about everything at the same time, as all these megathreats are interconnected..." When asked if we're "there again" in reference to the 2008 great financial crisis, Roubini replied: "Yes, we’re here again." "But in addition to the economic, monetary, and financial risks - and there are new ones - now we’re going towards stagflation like we’ve never seen since the 1970s." ...

Active shootings are reported in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev, which has been plunged into darkness as a result of Russian strikes on energy infrastructure. Since February 2022, various gangs became active in Kiev, some robbing residents, some banks and stores. The previous peak of criminal gang activity was in March-April 2022. At that time, the Russian military was near Kiev, causing panic among some citizens and hope for looting amidst the chaos for others. Today, the story seems to be repeated. The situation is aggravated by the impoverishment of the population, a sense of hopelessness, and the expectation of freezing weather in a de-energized city.
