About Those Captured Five “Most Wanted” ISIS Leaders: This Could Be A BAD OMEN For Silver

Let’s hope history doesn’t repeat, because we all know what happened to silver in 2011, the day after the big announcement. Here’s the details…

Please hear me out before saying, “Ole Half Dollar’s fallen off his rocker again”.

This thought keeps creeping up in the back of my mind, so it’s probably good to just speak my mind.

And get it off my chest.

On Monday, May 2nd, 2011 (Pakistani time), which was Sunday afternoon (May 1st in the U.S.), well, this:

That announcement was on a Sunday evening.

It was Sunday, May 1st, 2011.

Remember: World changing announcements always happen on a Sunday evening.

For those who are unaware, Nixon closed the gold window on a Sunday.

It was Sunday, August 15, 1971:

Thank God today is not Sunday.

Which is why we might just be spared this time around.

From what?

From this:

“But Half Dollar, what’s this bad omen you’re talking about”?

Good question.

It’s this:

Now don’t get me wrong – I’m glad they’re captured.

But the capture isn’t really the point: It’s the news of the capture that’s the point.

Regardless, here’s some of the details of the capture, via Zero Hedge:

Hours before, a security advisor to Iraq’s government said that Iraqi agents had detained a top aide to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, then used an app on his smartphone to lure four commanders from the terrorist organization into a trap – convincing the four Iraqis and one Syrian to cross the border from Syria to Iraq where they were captured by officials.

Iraqi state television broadcast images of four of the men arrested in the operation.

The aide, Ismail al-Eithawi (a.k.a. Abu Zaid al-Iraqi) was captured in Turkey by authorities and handed over to Iraqi counterparts, according to an account told to Reuters by Iraqi security advisor Hisham al-Hashimi. What followed was a three-month operation to track a group of senior Islamic State leaders hiding in Syria and Turkey.

Those arrested included Saddam al-Jammel, a Syrian who had been the head of the Islamic State territory around Deir al-Zour, and Abu Abdel al-Haq, an Iraqi who had been the head of internal security for the group. Two other Iraqis were also arrested, the officials said. –New York Times

So let’s see here – We have North Korean captured Americans being released and welcomed home in the wee hours of this morning, and now we have captured five of the “most wanted” ISIS leaders.

The only thing that’s missing is some sort of breaking peace accord between Iran and Israel.

If that happens, especially if it happens this Sunday, then get ready to back up the truck.

If not, then while this may be an omen, it may not be a bad omen, and it is unclear whether these “most wanted” ISIS leaders are even on the same playing field as Osama bin Laden.

But when coupled with this news:

Then the five “most wanted” ISIS leaders and World Peace (with an explanation point!) might just be on the same playing field.

Let’s hope not.

Either way, don’t let your guard down.

Good news is smashing news.

Stack accordingly…
