Fortunately it seems that Divine Providence took pity on us.
While the index
was in the most terrible decline of all
time so far, the favourable coincidence reappeared.
Terrorism struck again.
Not with a direct
hit this time, but
with a terrible menace to all humanity.
The threat from Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.
To rid Iraq of its dictator.
Who supported the
dictator for years,
in his control of the Iraqi people,
that's another story.
The Iraqis, I
guess, have already
realized how indebted they must be.
bombing and then the liberating
soldiers must have been received with great gratitude.
You know of course
big winners are those liberated
by this effort of ours.
They now live
happily in long-lasting peace,
freedom and democracy surrounded by the
delights of the western way of life and the
liberal economy of the New Order.
Whether our index
(purely by accident of course)
also showed a profit,
that can be seen in Figure 6.
From point C and onwards
(or a little bit
earlier, because the index,
as in the previous wars, seems to "smell"
upcoming events) there began a wonderful
smooth upward trend that lasted over four years.
alongside this fabulous increase of the index there
was some "collateral damages", as it is so nicely called.
Well, what can we
In order to save mankind from the
Iraqi weapons of mass destruction,
we had to accept some losses.
Because there had
been observed some
not at all promising ups and downs in the index,
and in order to
find out if (as long as we were in
an upward phase) a further increase was possible,
it would be worth repeating the experiment, and
starting the next war of liberation before the
beginning of the next drop.
Although this humanitarian action didn't last long
infrastructure of a country can obviously in a short time
be reduced to a state which demands immediate reconstruction),
and there was no direct involvement of the great transatlantic ally,
again, miracle of miracles, the impact on the index was impressive.
The already ongoing rise was maintained and intensified.
We exceeded the
maximum of the year 2000, we passed the
milestone of 14,000 points and we broke the all-time records.
Until the autumn of 2007 we could be optimistic.
We had nothing to
If the next big fall should start, Divine Providence
(which is known to be on our side)
would ensure that the next terrorist strike would take place,
so that we could start the next war of liberation.
We had the magic recipe.
And we would not
miss the opportunities
for humanitarian actions.
There are lines of
yearning to be freed, and the world is full of
state-nests of terrorists who are ready to
drown all mankind in blood.
