QUESTION: “I think that the parallel with the Gulf War or 1939-1944, or Afghanistan war IS NOT RELATING to the same scenario”
ANSWER: The Gulf War is appropriate. World War I and World War II involved directly the European financial markets, whereas the other wars were remote including Korea and Vietnam. Capital flees from the conflict. If the war in Syria expands after next November engulfing Europe, then we will see a whole different pattern emerge in the financial markets.
