US-Iran: On a collision course for war?
“The extraordinary events of the past 24 hours were indicative of how the stand-off between the US and Iran has become a game of brinkmanship with no apparent objective in sight.”
USAGOLD note: The president apparently pulled back from an attack on Iran at the very last moment. We see the president as a reluctant warrior when it comes to the Middle East. At the same time, the U.S. could be forced into a military reaction and that possibility hangs over the financial markets as we go into the weekend.
