Wednesday, 5/11/11, 11:15 a.m. –– Some experts are calling the bizarre death in Dubai the go-code for a terrorist attack on Chicago’s Willis Tower, formerly Sears Tower, which the FBI has long considered one of the nation’s top terror targets.
Only time will tell if they are right or wrong, but it doesn’t take conspiracy theory to have doubts about the United Arab Emirates (UAE) version of what happened in the first so-called suicide since Burj Khalifa (Arabic for Khalfa Tower) was completed on Oct 1, 2009:
“The tower was designed by Chicago-based Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, which has a long track record engineering some of the world’s tallest buildings, including Chicago’s Willis Tower, the tallest in the U.S. formerly known as the Sears Tower.”
Precious metals continue their downward plummet, against all rules and norms in a time of international uncertainty about possible war and probable terror, fueling speculation that investors anticipate a state of emergency and ensuing confiscation of gold, silver, platinum and palladium.
