    If The Saudi Arabia Situation Doesn’t Worry You, You’re Not Paying Attention

    A key geopolitical axis is swiftly shifting

    While turbulent during the best of times, gigantic waves of change are now sweeping across the Middle East. The magnitude is such that the impact on the global price of oil, as well as world markets, is likely to be enormous.

    A dramatic geo-political realignment by Saudi Arabia is in full swing this month. It’s upending many decades of established strategic relationships among the world's superpowers and, in particular, is throwing the Middle East into turmoil. So much is currently in flux, especially in Saudi Arabia, that nearly anything can happen next. Which is precisely why this volatile situation should command our focused attention at this time.

    The Saker: The Syrian Powderkeg

    The risk of nuclear war is now concerningly high
    by Adam Taggart

    Following up on our recent warning about the situation in Syria, Chris sits down this week for a conversation with The Saker, who writes extensively on geo-political and military matters. The Saker (a nom-de-plume), is a former intelligence expert with professional and personal insights into Russia and the Middle East.

    He shares our deep concern for the dangerously misdirected current state of US foreign and military policy, as well as the potentially lethal repercussions these threaten to have in the powderkeg that is Syria.

    In this week's podcast, The Saker provides an excellent distillation of the complex forces in play in Syria — as well as in the brewing friction between the US and Russia — and why the risk of nuclear war has now grown higher than it has been in decades.

    Pre-ALERT: Trump Risks War With Russia

    The Syria powderkeg threatens to explode
    by Chris Martenson

    Trump has now backed his administration into a corner.  If there’s another suspected poison gas attack in Syria, he’s promised to escalate the situation by beginning bombings.

    It appears that what I feared might happen under a Clinton presidency (and I still think probably would have, anyways) is now happening under the Trump administration.

    Let me be perfectly clear: bombing Syria risks a direct confrontation with Russia.  If that happens, all bets are off. Anything could happen next, up to and including a nuclear exchange.

    Off The Cuff: The Era Of Easy Money Is Over

    Debt-funded stimulus no longer yields an increase of GDP

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and John Rubino discuss:

    • Sovereign Sabre-Rattling
      • Suddenly, the world became a lot less safe
    • Market Misdirection
      • The central planners are doing their utmost to paint a positive picture
    • The Era Of Easy Money is Over
      • Debt-funded stimulus no longer results in an increase of GDP
    • How This All Will End
      • Exploring the likely pins that will pop this "mother of all bubbles"

    Chris and John look at the disconnect between world events and stock prices and urge folks not to misled: risk is high, and getting higher. There is *no* rational reason for the current price levels in financial markets — only gobs and gobs of liquidity being force-fed into the system by the world's central banks.

    But the data is increasingly showing that the era of "easy money" we've lived under since the Great Recession has reached its inevitable terminus. Shoving more debt into the system is no longer boosting GDP. We are now simply blowing bigger asset bubbles that will monumentally destructive when they burst — as they must.

    Murder And Mayhem In The Middle East

    Why it matters to those living in the West

    To understand what’s happening in Syria right now, you have to understand the tactics and motivations of the US and NATO — the three parties sharing interwoven aims and goals in the Middle East/North African (MENA) region.

    The main point here is that as resources become tight, the ruling powers can be expected to act in increasingly desperate ways.
