Vatican Endorses Military Force Against ISIS ‘Genocide’ – 16 March 2015

RT logo(Lucas : that is your good old Vatican and belief system for you. It is just the old over and over… no hallelujahs but be ready for war… amen!)

The Vatican’s line on ISIS has taken a new turn, as its ambassador in Geneva suggested that if a political settlement is impossible, military force should be used against the jihadists. He also said the form of intervention should be defined by the UN.

In an interview with Catholic magazine Crux, Archbishop Silvano Tomasi used the word “genocide” to describe the terrorist group’s campaign of executions and ethno-religious persecution through northern Syria and Iraq.

“Otherwise we’ll be crying out in the future about why we didn’t so something, why we allowed such a terrible tragedy to happen,” the Vatican’s top diplomat at the United Nations said, suggesting military force in the absence of a political solution.

ZeroHedge – BofA Warns: VIX Spells Trouble – 16 March 2014

ZeroHedgeMarkets are showing increased signs of investor anxiety, warns BofA’s Macneil Curry. The Friday breakout in the VIX Index says that this anxiety will likely persist into next week. Indeed, Curry adds, the VIX has based from its highest levels in over a year suggesting that investors are more susceptible to bad news and defensive behavior than at any time in the past 12 months. Several markets look particularly susceptible to this change in sentiment.

From an equity perspective, the Nikkei stands out. Its breakdown from 5 week Flag support says its medium term downtrend has resumed, targeting last summer’s range lows between 12,400/13,400.
