in General Discussion edited January 2014
I want to be prepared for the post-Iraq-war world and just wonder what would be rational reactions to it?



I have a suggestion: Invest in Blockbuster. I´ll try to think of more

    Invest in companies that manufacture metal detectors. Every mall, movie theater, etc. will purchase them after the first suicide bomber attack...



    [added] I guess you suggested "blockbuster" for similar reasons?



    Quote: Retired general Wesley Clark told the Senate Armed Services Committee that a war would "super-charge recruiting for Al Qaeda."

    I really, really hope this will never happen in North America.

    But I think this may be the next level of attacks, should the situation escalate. And at this stage, with other options (such as intensified weapons inspections) not fully exhausted, a war on Iraq (thread topic) with large civilian casualties would more likely than not provoke this escalation.



    Al-Qaeda and its like-minded affiliates are not just our problem, it's a global problem. Let's hope law enforcement agencies around the world get their act together. And that ours have the sense to work with them.



    Back to economic aspects:

    Usually there is a surge in hiring at the beginning of a new year. It didn't happen this year, since many companies are being very cautious due to the possibility of war. All levels of jobs are affected.
