that is funny
"the Times of London" was the inspiration for the Walrus:
The time has come,' the Walrus said,
To talk of many things:
Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax —
Of cabbages — and kings —
And why the sea is boiling hot —
And whether pigs have wings.'
which leads to the final verse (which is hardly mentioned)
O Oysters,' said the Carpenter,
You've had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again?'
But answer came there none —
And this was scarcely odd, because
They'd eaten every one."

BS--is this an acronym for Bowl of Soup? must be chicken
DRS on BS. Almost an academic/analytic observation.
Trouble is, you are as ignorant as most people (some very intelligent and educated) about exponential growth. Neil deGrasse Tyson bemoans the fact that very few children today are taught exponential thinking.
All of Darwin's "Origin of the species" and Natural selection is based on decimal/linear growth. It is difficult to overcome millennia of linear thinking.
Ray Kurzweil, Kai Fu li, Yuval Harari talk a lot about our coming future and Ray's predictions have been quite acute since 1980

CB 13:16 -- The truth is the most valuable commodity in human society and for that reason, it is held by a few and rarely shared by the public..All governments tend to tell the selective truth or simply resort to telling lies to the public..Anyone anywhere who tends to believe any government is liable to tell the truth should not be a trader in the first place…
I won't be here in 20 years to tell you "I told you so"—but perhaps I will send that message from heaven thru Google's cloud.

every day a John Le Carre novel. But not in the sense that you meant.
How's this for bad timing?
In a list consisting mostly of foreign dignitaries that are known to only a handful of people in the UK, US and the rest of the English-speaking world, the Times of London named now-deceased Iranian General Qassem Suleimani to its list of "Twenty faces to look out for in 2020."
The list, published on the Times' website early Thursday morning, just hours before Suleimani was killed during a drone strike in Baghdad,
ac I call BS on your assertions...but only partially so. AI can make one side clever. It does NOT make that side wise...not yet anyway.
AI is a tool...but for now, that's all it is. In the world of war fighting, AI is not yet a game changer like rockets, helicopters or video cameras. The "killer app for AI" will appear someday, but it hasn't happened yet. (The killer app is something like the word processor or the spreadsheet...something that is instantly useful and everybody has to have.)
I agree with the "Brain vs Brawn" prediction, but maybe not in the way you suggest. Over the past decades, the US has implemented the "Brawn" side of the equation...more soldiers, better weapon systems, lots of money, etc. What it has not done is more raw intelligence and statecraft like one would have seen in the Cold War era or WW1 and WW2.
AI is a fancy and expensive solution for very specific problems. In future years, leaders will go back to the old ways of more people and less computers. That's why places like Ukraine are fought over so bitterly...places full of spies and intrigue, every day a John Le Carre novel.

"Once US government stop interfere in to other Countries internal afairs, this world will be better place for living!"
The most important aspect of the eradication of Qassem Soleimani ("Sol" for his friends) is the continued ignorance (of most people) about the rise and significance of Artificial Intelligence in future wars.
The ability of deep learning algorithms to detect and analyze patterns, behaviors, intentions, crime detection, medical diagnosis,autonomous cars and much more… is becoming dominant at exponential rate.
Article just published on a study of breast cancer diagnosis where AI beat diagnosis of a cancer infected breast by 6 expert doctors. The algorithm identified cancerous polyps which the experts missed. So it is nowadays with lung problems, eyes, diabetics and terrorist.
Israel (necessity is the mother of invention) is one of the most advanced places where AI is becoming formidable force. The number of terrorist attacks has been squelched to minimum lately thanks to pattern recognition systems that can detect an INTENTIONAL act of terror long before it is executed-alerting the proper forces who expect and prevent such actions.
This is what happened with "Sol". I won't be surprised to find out that such technology allowed the USA forces to exterminate the Iranian vermin with such precision with minimum collateral damage in a crowded airport!
This is the way future wars will be conducted. Vehicles (uavs, planes, rockets, missiles) with optics that can reach an accuracy of 10 meters radius for a bomb with the correct weight, timing, instantaneous decision making from enormous distances --will defeat any human fighter with suicide intentions but conventional weapons.
Most of the armies in the world are still fighting the last war. Not any more. The next "war" is between Brain and Brawn. Bet on Brain!

JPkovsky, no clue about the three you mentioned but in today's dynamics it may be Xi ending as the winner.
Knew, your comment is far from being relevant to to this case. Iranian general in Iraq not by invitation from the local regime and connected to paramilitary grouping that can be considered as terrorism by majority. so, what you are talking about?

Israel MacroMicro 16:11:51 GMT - 01/03/2020
the US script that brought an expiry to the Iranian general is actually a delivery of peace of mind to many Iranian politicians/leaders who may face much less fear now to handle Iranian policies (internal and external) with more pragmatic manners. so, messages of 'thank you USA' more likely than bloody actions against US targets. who is the unlucky to be picked as target for a "revenge" without causing US hitting Iran? - welcome to the middle east mindset which involves no mind
Israel MacroMicro 16:02:37 GMT - 01/03/2020
seriously, what for reaction Iran may produce that may not cause USA to demolish them? - in other words, non event that will cost serious money to PanicTraders when markets open Sunday night. of course, there is a possibility that bigger boys will stretch the "event" for another few weeks while nothing happens in reality. so, have a nice weekend :)

the original Washington Post headline last eve.
"Airstrike at Baghdad airport kills Iran’s most revered military leader, Qasem Soleimani"
they did change it later to.
"Pentagon launched airstrike that killed Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani"

" A matter of when, not if Iran retaliates so beware of headlines"
Actually, Mossad published recently 40 year research of consequences of disposing of powerful Terrorist commanders. Turns out that the overall results show to be rather efficient and holding further Islamic attacks for quite a while until a significant figure is eliminated from the surface.
The message for all Islamic terrorists is that USA (or Israel and other interested factors) know every move of their leaders and it is only a matter of command to kill them. Nasrallah has not left his bunker since 2006.

re Risk of gap openings next week if ... = potential for account wipe-out

— Market still thin
— A matter of when, not if Iran retaliates so beware of headlines
— Market will be cautious positioning over the weekend. This suggests limits on safe haven dollar downside vs. risk currencies.
— Risk of gap openings next week if Iran retaliated over the weekend
— Another reason for a liquidating market (note EURUSD, GBPUSD, AUDUSD, etc)
