The US Military has confirmed the deaths, and gold & silver have spiked at the markets open Sunday evening…
During an attack by al-Shabaab, an al-Qaida group in East Africa, earlier today, one (1) U.S. service member and two (2) Department of Defense contractors were killed at a Kenya Defense Force Military Base in Manda Bay, Kenya.
In addition, two (2) Department of Defense members were wounded. The wounded Americans are currently in stable condition and being evacuated.
At this time, the names of the fallen and the wounded are being withheld as part of the next of kin notification process. Out of respect for the families of the fallen and injured, we ask that everyone respect their privacy during this difficult time. The Department of Defense is fully committed to providing the families of the fallen dedicated care, service, and support.
AFRICOM is the US Military’s command structure for basically the geographical region of Africa, whereas CENTCOM is US Central Command, and CENTCOM’s theatre of operations consists of the Middle East, from Egypt to Kazakstan and all in between.
Interestingly, when you’re part of the Trump 2020 re-election campaign either knowingly, or not, you’ve gotta downplay the incident:
Although it is pretty clear that things are really only now getting started.
Let us not forget, too, this ominous warning (threat?) from President Trump:
These Media Posts will serve as notification to the United States Congress that should Iran strike any U.S. person or target, the United States will quickly & fully strike back, & perhaps in a disproportionate manner. Such legal notice is not required, but is given nevertheless!

So if President Trump is being truthful here, then we’re in for some very, very serious escalations.
On Friday’s Silver Doctors Live, to which we were only trying to help sort this stuff out by talking about this rationally, yet to our end resulted in a large number of people “unsubscribing” from us, we said the US military is at very serious risk:
Regardless, gold & silver just started trading at 6:00 p.m. EST, and here’s a look at the move:
This is not to say the spike is because of the three deaths specifically, but rather, a culmination of everything.
And it’s only now getting started.
