Investment Markets Overview – w/e 30 Aug 2013

All eyes were fixed on the tragedy that is Syria this week as it emerged that hundreds were killed by chemical weapons in Damascus on the 21st August. British Prime Minister, David Cameron, failed to convince parliament that a hasty strike against the Assad regime, alongside of America, was needed, whilst moral outrage was expressed by the newly appointed US Secretary of State, John Kerry, who, following DC’s defeat, stated there was convincing evidence that it was done by the Syrian government. Meanwhile, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, President Obama, cited the attack as the worst chemical weapons attack of the 21st Century. He’s on safe ground here as there haven’t been any large scale CW atrocities this century, albeit that a quick trip down memory lane, “lest we remember,” reveals the horrific 20,000 alleged death toll, following Saddam’s use of CWs during the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war and, of course, the millions of tons of napalm and agent orange dropped on Vietnam by Uncle Sam over the 1965-1975 war, which killed more than a million people as well as the 400,000 Vietnamese children who were born with birth defects since.
