The Heat Is Getting Hotter
Secret assault on terrorism widens on 2 continents
The White House has intensified the Central Intelligence Agency’s drone missile campaign in Pakistan, approved raids against Qaeda operatives in Somalia and launched clandestine operations from Kenya. The administration has worked with European allies to dismantle terrorist groups in North Africa, efforts that include a recent French strike in Algeria. And the Pentagon tapped a network of private contractors to gather intelligence about things like militant hide-outs in Pakistan and the location of an American soldier currently in Taliban hands.
....in a country where a father and son with just one rifle can cripple our nation's capital, a whacked out college student can successfully gun down and murder dozens of his fellow classmates, and an upset Christian nut job can blow up our courthouse in OK gutting the entire center of the building killing over 160.......
Mathematically speaking, now that we are turning up the heat.......what do you think the probability, and how long, before an organized, motivated, well funded, trained muslim terrorist group who can kill thousands of the best trained and best equipped soldiers in the world, our children......hits our soil?
How important will the ticker be at that point.....mathematically speaking?
My guess is very few of you contemplate this very relevant variable into your investment analysis....Buffett does.
