Re: What is going on here?
Could this nationalization of the airlines be accomodated by another act of terrorism, possibly on a foreign airline flying to the United States? The preprogrammed rationale being that the U. S. must have control of all flights in and out of the country in order to maintain Homeland Security?
And of course a nationalized airline will operate with all of the benefits and profit margins of Haliburton, i. e., government subsidies on everything from oil to airport terminals, big tax breaks, no competitive pricing. And as Shannow says, the implicit benefit of controlling all of the nation's air transportation as the icing on the cake.
Maybe the Bush insiders know this and are already establishing market positions to sell out at a profit, while the rest of the investment world runs scared from the bankruptcy filings...
