They have done this many times in the past. When the financial oligarchs don't get what they want, they don't have to hold a gun to a president's head anymore to make him change course. Now they have so much power and wealth and control of the market itself (with high speed trading computers) they can actually hold a gun to ours instead. They did it before with TARP. Are they doing it with Syria today?
