The Bets Are Down. The Bears Come to The Ring.
The Iraqi people are hoping for the government to stand up. Our two most high value targets have gone to the region for meetings with leaders there and left, Cheney to Saudi Arabia. Muqtada al Sadr has threatened to leave the government if Maliki met with Bush. In my experience in markets when ennui has destroyed hope or fear, persistence is its own rule, things change. Our leaders went there on business. The bears are Maliki and al Sadr. It will be decided between them. We have our bet down. It is now in the contest.
