Scoreboard: Syrian fright

Speculation over possible action against Syria saw global stocks take a fall and safehavens like gold and silver rise.

Concerns over Syria hit the market last night, as the US outlined a little more detail as to how exactly they are going to approach it. The first point to note is that neither the US nor the UK are going to rely on evidence provided by the United Nations. Instead, evidence provided by ‘intelligence’ sources will be used given it proved to be so useful and accurate in Iraq – WMD’s people. As for the attack itself, officially, options are ‘still being discussed’ but unofficially all the talk is of sea launched cruise missiles that would hit select military targets.
