...Archduke Ferdinand...assassinated [by Gavrilo Princip in 1914]...

The US waited until 1917 to enter WWI.

Many Americans were not in favor of the U.S. entering the war and wanted to remain neutral. However, the U.S. eventually did enter the war.

This time around (European Financial War I, a/k/a World Currency War), the US is already fully committed to the battle on behalf of its ally, the ECB, led by General Ben Bernanke on the front (swap) lines.

Ellis Island (also known as JP Morgan) is standing with open doors ready to welcome $$$ depositing immigrants from war-torn European banks.

The Whale Depositors of PIIGS countries are welcome to support JPM's next London Whale in making even bigger bets about who will win the European war.

All hail derivatives! (salute).
