Something wicked this way comes

I had posted about Iranian gold movements earlier today here: Follow the Money. Ran into another interesting bit at Neanderpundit where Og writes:

Damn ebay!
Every once in a while, I do several Ebay searches, to see if there's a preponderance of things I want - unless there is a glut of something, you can't get them cheap.

So today I find something that I've wanted for a long, long time. A Minox B

Usually, these things are a hundred and fifty bucks, or more. Today I bought one, without even really trying, for $22.

Dozens of these suckers have hit the market in the past couple of days. Now, I'm not a tinfoil hat kinda guy. but several things have happened in the past month that make me wonder.

1: You cannot buy an SPR22. I've been trying to buy one in 45-70 for over a year now. They ain't coming in. Why? Baikal, the manufacturer, has been building AK-47's by the trainload and shipping them to Syria.
2: You can barely find any 7.62 X 39 ammo. Of any kind. Why? Because apparently Wolf is shipping all THEY can manufacture to Syria.
3: All kinds of 'spy" type cameras, so long the standard tool of the alphabet soup agencies, are being dumped on the market. At the same time, cameraphones with sattelite technology are becoming available to the general public.

Does it seem like something is about to go down?

Most curious. I remember during the Vietnam War people started to notice when some new offensive was going to happen as late night Pizza deliveries to the Pentagon would go up. The question now is who is going to blink first. My bet is on Syria with Iran a close second. Hope you enjoy those 72 white raisins of exceptional purity guys...
