I have to admit, I am pretty sick of writing about Europe, particularly since nothing has changed over there in the last month.
Instead what’s happened is that Mario Draghi issued a borderline ridiculous statement that he somehow will be able to fix the EU’s solvency Crisis.
The actual speech started with a philosophical inquiry comparing the Euro to a bumblebee. I kid you not:
I asked myself what sort of [...]

The Central Intelligence Agency’s involvement in drug trafficking is back in the media spotlight after a spokesman for the violence-plagued Mexican state of Chihuahua became the latest high-profile individual to accuse the CIA, which has been linked to narcotics trafficking for decades, of ongoing efforts to “manage the drug trade.” The infamous American spy agency refused to comment.
In a recent interview, Chihuahua state spokesman Guillermo Terrazas [...]
According to documents reportedly found by the Japanese press, late North Korean leader Kim Jong Il had ordered that the country “mass-produce” nuclear weapons.
Mainichi Shimbun reports that the revelations came from internal Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) documents produced in February of this year. The documents were reportedly to be used to train mid-level officers.
Kim Jong Il, who died in December of last year, had apparently ordered the “development of enriched [...]

Sometimes, capturing a Taliban commander requires vast resources and complex operations. Last week in eastern Afghanistan, it required neither.
The wanted poster for Mohammad Ashan.
Mohammad Ashan, a mid-level Taliban commander in Paktika province, strolled toward a police checkpoint in the district of Sar Howza with a wanted poster bearing his own face. He demanded the finder’s fee referenced on the poster: $100.
Afghan officials, perplexed by the man’s misguided motives, arrested him [...]
Wikileaks’ threat to expose Bank of America came and went, and yet all it took for the bank to implode was reality, a little time, and an independent media. That said, Wikileaks has not yet been completely relegated to the compost heap of one time fads. In a blast submission of several thousand cables, Julian Assange tries to regain his one time star status. [...]
From Operation LeakS’ site, http://bankofamericasuck.com, here is the initial release of what appears to be a whistleblower’s (former employee) disclosure that Brian Moynihan’s firm is lying to the Federal government. The punchline is that this appears to be a concerted effort from the ground up to hide foreclosure data from auditors and the Fed in order to obtain select preferential treatment in a variety [...]
Who benefits from investing in rising commodity prices? Could it be the Fed’s actions don’t help anyone other than those who are already very very wealthy, at the expense of those who are rank and file workers and mid-level folks? The situation only gets worse for all those not at the top, despite the fact that the Fed covers QE2 by making reference to struggling middle-class homeowners?
