“Wall Street would gain from Pakistan violence”

A dramatic rise in violence in Pakistan could be beneficial for Wall Street, which would like to capitalize on “world-wide fear” to rehabilitate the dollar, believes journalist Webster Tarpley.

“All the hot money of the world, under the condition of a world-wide panic might flee back into the dollar, which would allow the propping up of the dollar compared to the euro and the yen,” Tarpley told RT. “Suppose you have a full-scale civil war in Pakistan. Suppose the Taliban get somewhere near the nuclear forces of Pakistan. That would result in a large regional crisis causing some kind of a shocking, spectacular world panic. There are people in Wall Street who would like to do that.”
