Nov. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Asian stocks rose, with a benchmark index headed for its second day of gains, amid speculation European leaders are closer to agreeing measures that may help curtail the region’s debt crisis.
I suspect that this is intended as a smokescreen to conceal the relationship between the increasing threat of world war and the financial crisis, in an attempt to neutralize LaRouche's warnings. It's the same thing as having their puppet Obama put on an apron and dish out Thanksgiving dinners to distract us from the reality that a record number of people are food-insecure thanks to Obama's policies. It's a snap for the oligarchy to manipulate some stock prices and get their media to spin a narrative around it, but it doesn't change reality.
It looks like they're trying to lull us into a false sense of security, to make LaRouche look like an alarmist, but he predicted an escalation toward world war, apparently as a result of the the collapse of the British empire's financial power, and that's exactly what happened, although perhaps not in the precise form he predicted. I suspect that Drudge's fixation on Putin is a clue to what's coming down the line.
