The Price Of Gold Spikes As Investors Get Spooked By Talk Of World War III And Nuclear Conflict

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Whenever the world starts going crazy, investors instinctively begin flocking to precious metals.  So it wasn’t exactly a surprise when gold and silver prices started to move upward aggressively as global leaders continued to talk about the possibility of World War III and nuclear conflict.  The price of gold spiked to a five month high on Tuesday, and as I write this article gold is currently sitting at $1277.10 an ounce.  Right now silver is at $18.35 an ounce, and many analysts believe that it is poised for a dramatic jump in the weeks and months to come as global tensions continue to rise.  Google searches for the phrase “going to war” are the highest that they have been at any point in recent years, and many people out there are starting to understand that the U.S. could soon be facing military conflicts in Syria and in North Korea simultaneously.

In response to persistent threats from the Trump administration, the North Koreans are promising that they will not hesitate to use nuclear weapons if they are attacked by the U.S. military.

In particular, an article that was just published in North Korea’s official state newspaper says that U.S bases in South Korea and the Pacific operation theater but also in the U.S. mainland would be targeted.

Most analysts do not believe that North Korea has any missiles that can reach the U.S. mainland, so that is probably an empty threat, but they can definitely hit Seoul, Tokyo and all U.S. military bases in South Korea and Japan.

And even if the U.S. was able to locate and take out all North Korean nukes in an overwhelming first strike, the North Koreans would still have thousands of artillery guns and rockets aimed at Seoul.  Military analysts in the western world have estimated that North Korea could fire off up to half a million rounds within one hour of being attacked, and the devastation that such a barrage would cause in Seoul would be beyond anything that we have ever seen in the modern world.

Personally, I have come to the conclusion that it is going to be nearly impossible to conduct a conventional military assault on North Korea that does not result in an absolutely catastrophic death toll.

Unfortunately, Donald Trump appears determined to do something anyway.  A couple of days ago we learned that he “has ordered his military advisers to be ready with a list of options to smash North Korea’s nuclear threat”, and on Tuesday he told the world that the U.S would “solve the problem” whether China helps or not…

Trump, who has urged China to do more to rein in its impoverished ally and neighbor, said in a tweet that North Korea was “looking for trouble” and the United States would “solve the problem” with or without Beijing’s help.

Just like he did with Syria, Trump’s words have now committed us to taking military action in North Korea.

Let us hope that any military action is delayed for as long as possible, but it is definitely alarming that Trump boasted to the Fox Business Network about the “very powerful” naval armada that is sailing toward North Korea right now

“We are sending an armada. Very powerful,” Trump told Fox Business Network. “We have submarines. Very powerful. Far more powerful than the aircraft carrier. That I can tell you.”

Meanwhile, it is being reported that the Chinese have deployed 150,000 troops to their border with North Korea as they continue to warn both sides against taking military action.

Over in the Middle East, things continue to get even more tense as well.

Russia and Iran have pledged to “respond with force” to any additional U.S. attacks, but the Trump administration is not showing any signs of backing down.  In fact, White House press secretary Sean Spicer has substantially lowered the threshold for more military conflict by suggesting that the use of “barrel bombs” may be enough to justify another attack.  Considering the fact that everyone in the Syrian civil war has been regularly using barrel bombs for many years and that approximately 13,000 were used in 2016 alone, it is very alarming for Spicer to say such a thing.

On Tuesday, Trump told the American people that “we’re not going into Syria”, but what happens if he orders another missile strike and the Russians and Iranians respond by shooting down some U.S. aircraft or by sinking an entire aircraft carrier?

I can guarantee you that members of Congress from both parties will be absolutely screaming for war if CNN starts endlessly playing footage of a U.S. aircraft carrier sinking after it has been struck by the Russians or by the Iranians.

We are so close to World War III erupting in the Middle East, and there was no need for the U.S. to get involved in the first place.  According to former CIA officer Philip Giraldi, evidence continues to mount that Assad had absolutely nothing to do with the chemical attack that Trump got so upset about…

Philip Giraldi, former CIA officer and director of the Council for the National Interest, stated on the Scott Horton show that “military and intelligence personnel” in the Middle East, who are “intimately familiar” with the intelligence, call the allegation that Assad or Russia carried out the attack a “sham.”

Giraldi said the intelligence confirms the Russian account, “which is that they [attacking aircraft] hit a warehouse where al-Qaeda rebels were storing chemicals of their own and it basically caused an explosion that resulted in the casualties.” Moreover, Giraldi noted, “Assad had no motive for doing this.”

Investors that can see the writing on the wall are already getting out of stocks and into precious metals while there is still time to do so.

Because if we get into a direct military conflict with Russia and Iran in Syria, global financial markets will crash and gold and silver will soar into the stratosphere.

And of course a similar scenario would play out if we attack North Korea and the North Koreans respond by firing off nuclear or chemical warheads at targets in South Korea and Japan.

I did not expect that we would be on the verge of World War III less than three months into the Trump administration, but here we are.

These are perilous times, and those that are wise are moving their money and are making key preparations before things spiral completely out of control.

    For now, the US is not only fighting terrorists. It is also fighting the people who are fighting the terrorists

  • aldownunder

    There’s plenty of geopolitical uncertainty around the world. It appears politicians are, unfortunately, trying to distract the people from their problems and start another global war. This is something we don’t want, but should prepare for

    • K2

      No world war 3 is going to happen. Russia and US are not st*pid to go to war over some banana republic. Both have everything to lose if ww3 happens and both know it. There will not be a ‘globe’ to dominate if ww3 happens and everybody knows it

      All the warnings by russia to america and by america to russia are mere ‘saber rattling’.

      Geopolitical uncertainites always existed since time immemorial and will continue to exist. That also does not mean WW3 will happen. Prepare if you want but no ww3 will happen.

      Remember how people said ww3 will happen in 2013 between american and russia over ukraine?

      • Paul Patriot

        Incorrect. Ww3 is coming whether you like it or not and whether you believe it or not.

        It most likely will not be in the form discussed in this article, but make no mistake, if the Bible is true, there is one more final world conflict coming.

        • jox

          The Bible is not true. It was written by people that thought the world was only the Middle East. The prophecies are vague enaugh so that you can apply them to any situacion you wish. But in fact they don’t enable you to make the minimal prediction into the future.

          • GSOB

            You hope to escape death and judgment by denying His existence.

            The purpose of life is for you to prepare to dwell in Christ forever, for all the fullness of Deity is in the Son. The sooner you accept this reality and act accordingly, the better off you will be.

            Up until now, the fact the He is invisible can not be used as an excuse. Colossians 1:15

            The fact of the matter is, if you can know someone, you can know God.
            He is present and He has given you His word.

            Hebrews 11:27
            By faith Moses left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw Him who is invisible.

            1 Timothy 1:17
            Now to the King eternal, immortal, and invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

            Mankind left to themselves will destroy themselves, yet for the grace of God.

            I don’t hope anything. I’m just a human from the XXI century. You are still in the dark middle age, surrounded by gods, demons and magic. Move on.

            By the way, you deny the existence of a lot of other gods that other people claim they exist. Why are you such a nonbeliever and deny their existence?

          • GSOB

            There is forgiveness of sins, peace and eternal life only in Christ. All the other so called gods are counterfeits.

            The Bible is a sure guide to peace & eternal life.

            All you need to be made perfect is provided by the triune God.
            Now the Lord is the Spirit that’s how,. He can get inside of you right now.

            Got Christ?

            Yet, you believe in something from nothing, exploded somehow, into nothingness, life from non-life, simple to complex, dark matter, dark energy, and on & on.

            Right jox. The bible certainly can’t be true because nowhere in it do I find it saying the Patriots would win 5 Super Bowls. Great point jox!

          • jox

            Don’t blame your lack of logic on me. I say that the Bible prophecyes don’t work. You can spin and reverse if you want, but they wont work anyway.

          • Rick

            Jox, it really takes more faith to believe what you believe than for me to believe what I believe. We have much more yea evidence than you have na evidence. You are a man/woman of great faith!

          • jox

            Not at all. Certainly I cannot prove that chaos and time are the engines behind life and evolution, but it seems a sensible idea if you think at it. There are a lot of arguments. On the other hand, there are people that believe in a thousand of different Gods, surrounded by magic and supernatural powers. But you feel so superior that you think that your God is the real one (not the others, they are false!). Some miscelanea of texts written by ancient jews, where God says that they are the chosen people (surprise!). Well, excuse me but all this is 0% credible. As the Islam, no less, no more.

            So vague that the whole chapter 11 of Daniel is considered to be written after-the-fact by liberal secular scholars even though carbon dating puts it several hundred years before the actual events.

            Sure. Believe whatever you want as long as you can sleep at night. You’re ridiculous.

          Amen Paul. The war to end all wars culminating in the battle of Armageddon.

  • Alvin

    WW3 is coming. If the US continue to support terrorists and continue bombing Syria sooner or later the is US and Russia will go to war. This is the end game the Americans politicians understand that there country is bankrupt. They have nothing to lose. They want global domination no matter what. Also China they have there debt problems. At the end politicians will take us to war. Because during war time there is a rise in nationalism.

    • K2

      There is no world war 3 going to happen. Russia and US are not stupid to go to war over some banana republic. Both have everything to lose if ww3 happens and both know it. There will not be a ‘globe’ to dominate if ww3 happens and everybody knows it

      All the warnings by russia to america and by america to russia are mere ‘saber rattling’.

        True any war will be suicidal for both Russia and USA. But then again it only takes a spark to start a wild fire

          This is not a ‘spark’ that can cause a wildfire.

          • sister soldier

            You’re right. It is a wildfire that is sparking other nations.

          Putin thinks Russia can now survive a nuclear exchange. The days of MAD are over. Too many players with nukes these days.

        • sister soldier

          How soon we forget all of the news stories regarding the underground cities, ghost cities and Russia’s fallout shelters that they have constructed as of late. Everyone is preparing their country and their people for war, except America. Our politicians simply tell us to keep paying your bills.

    • GSOB

      The US maintains global domination,
      though bankrupt.

      More to this than gas used on children, though that alone justifies the American strike, if indeed that’s what happened.

      I think it did.

      Regardless of what we believe in this matter to be true, you are right, this is not over.
      Putin is up against the ropes,…. for the time being.

      America is in the drivers seat and needs to keep vigilant.

      • Rick

        The Globalists have as one of their whacked out goals to reduce the population by 90%. They would love nothing more than to see WW3 break out. The 90% won’t happen since the bible in Revelation speaks of 2/3 of the population wiped out. I think God is more powerful than the globalists, so I will go with 2/3. But even at that, it means 5 billion of us will soon be gone. Time again to get on our knees.

      the only hiccup was that Hillary was expected to win and instigate the elitist agenda seamlessly [ no media questioning] but Trump threw a monkey wrench into their plans but as you can see he’s been threatened enough to succumb to their wishes

  • Sam

    Sorry, I don’t see a”spike” in gold or silver. They went up less than 2% during recent events. The markets are certainly a bit nervous but the Dow has been pretty flat for a few weeks now. Syria is a small issue compared to N.Korea. Assad is brutal but not insane like Kim Jong Un who supposedly has nukes that could reach the west coast. We have 30K troops in S.Korea and an armada of Navy ships en route as well as a much bigger threat to N.Korea, a nuclear submarine and Un knows it. Trumps response in Syria sent a strong message to N.Korea, Russia and China.
    Assad’s supposed chemical attack was a false flag as he had no motive for jeopardizing his own position at this time. In fact, I don’t believe it was a chemical attack since many videos I reviewed had flawed images of aid workers with no gloves or protective hazmat gear and the hospitals were letting in “victims” will all their clothes on in many cases. I actually saw a couple of “dead” bodies move. The videos were taken by the ‘white-hats’ and not western journalists since this was a no-go zone in which they would have immediately been taken hostage.
    I think Trump is aware of the motives of those around him and he is letting others put their cards on the table. Then he will make his moves.

    • Rick

      I sure hope that’s correct.

    • LIZ THE SHIZ

      so you listen to Ground Zero too, but it might be a psyche-ops program , the deep state controls all narratives and points of view for it’s own purposes hhhhhhmmmm????

      • Sam

        Actually Liz, I never heard of Ground Zero but have looked them up. Interesting format. No comment as yet since I am not sure if this is another Psy-op. “All narratives” is pretty broad. Surely you mean with respect/reference to MSM.
        If one is not an adroit consumer of MSM, or any other source of info, one can be easily misled.

    • sister soldier

      That is a hard one to nail to the wall that Trump could possibly be feeling out the enemy? With all of the talk, and for good reason, regarding imminent nuclear war that is a dangerous predicament to place the American people and the world in for the sake of showboating.

  • Richard O. Mann

    Once the bombs and missiles and other forms of death and destruction start flying, it will no longer matter who fired the first shot nor why. As for gold and silver, you cannot eat either. Food is where the money needs to be spent. Food, water, clothing, all those things we take for granted.

    • sister soldier

      Good advice.

  • wahoojed

    Gold and Silver will crash with a stock market crash. Gold and Silver will start to spike in price after the stock market crash because that is when people will flock to safer assets. So buying now is buying high not low. And as far as Syria and especially North Korea goes, we can take them out conventionally very quickly. Just look back to the Gulf War and the “Shock and Awe” campaign that destroyed Saddam Hussein’s military in days. At the time, Iraq had the 4th strongest military in the world and we destroyed it like it was nothing with no major losses of our own.

    • HeyAHuman

      I can assure you that if paper currency were to plummet in value via a crash, people wouldn’t just start giving away gold and silver….

      Shock and awe. What a joke. We went to war against a country that had old obsolete Russian cold war equipment.
      Shock and awe yeah right! If the missile strike on Syria was a demonstration of the US capability to shock and awe.
      If was a miserable fail. Nearly 2/3 of the missiles failed to reach their targets. The Tomahawks fired were of the latest generation “Smart ” weapons. The airfeild was not destroyed. It was back in operation only hours after the strike. No chemical weapons were stored there. Which was the reason for the strike. Few aircraft were damaged.
      You dont win wars that way. If we do go war with the Russians and Chinese. Americans will be in for a little Shock and awe of their own.

      “We” I don’t squander it. It’s confiscated from me then squandered. The Middle East is a cash cow for defense contractors and those they bribe. Shure we have pot holes a car can fall into but the they have private jets. It’s a low priority.

    • goldminer

      I dont agree with you on many of your posts . But you are spot on on this one.
      Our military has been gutted for the last 10 years. We have fallen behind and not kept up with advances both Russia and China have been up to. Our Millitary is in no way ,shape or form to go to war with Russia or China on their soil or front door. Without pushing the big red button as a last resort. Hell we could not transport tanks and other ordanence to the shipping harbors with out bridges falling down. we are in a sad state.

      • Lennie Pike

          Oh yeah. You are the one with no comprehension of the state of our military.
          Do a search on Hyper Sonic cruise missiles, hyper sonic ICBMs Do the same on super caviating torpedos. Maybe lookup T90 tanks and the new T14s.
          While you are at it look up Americas newest fighter the F35 JSF. They are blowing up on the runways. Russian fighter drivers call it” Americas No Fly Zone.”. If you even think after 10 years of democrat gouging cuts to are military. With no new modernization. That We are even close to taking on another modern power on their own soil.

    I think there were deals made with Red China a few days ago. North Korea is our best weapons sales promoter in Asia. I just don’t see going in there and taking him out. I could see pissing him off so he launches a few rockets. Then we make a bunch of sales again off of Japan and South Korea.

    If we take him out and Red China runs the north, then we have to pull out all our troops from Korea and likely most from Japan. I just don’t see that happening.

    Will Iran now be a factor since Israel has now attacked Syrian troops? Who will start the big one, North Korea, or Iran? Either way gold will get jacked for sure.

    The Chemical attack was traced by radar back to Syrian forces.

    WW3 has already started. We just haven’t seen the mushroom clouds over several cities before they usher in their New World Order.

    So what do you have in place for possible nuclear war?
    You make me laugh. Just BS.
