    Unmanned combat systems are an extension of the expensive, failed unstrategic theories of war including “strategic bombing”.

    B-17 with no pilots. Bombing from 20,000, 40,000 feet or ICBM’s.

    Same morality!

    “The most successful war seldom pays for its losses.” Thomas Jefferson

    “War is an instrument entirely inefficient toward redressing wrong; and multiplies, instead of indemnifying losses.” Thomas Jefferson

    “The agents of the two people [United States and France] are either great bunglers or great rascals, when they cannot preserve that peace which is the universal wish of both.” Thomas Jefferson

    I assume that the rich are planning on selling their stocks to the under-invested middle class that have stayed away from equity mutual funds while the stock market has been climbing. Expect to see a barrage of financial sector advertising trumpeting the great gains their mutual funds have made over the past three years (they will probably have the 5 year returns in the fine print).

    There is probably more gold in them thar hills around Fort Knox than in it as I believe that the top cash crop in Kentucky is pot which probably generates more annual cash flow than the value of the gold in the vaults.

    BTW, Goldfinger was an excellent example of a bad guy figuring out that you just need to destroy confidence in order to create financial panic. Where is James Bond today when we really need him to restore confidence?
