nah, it's a legitimate

nah, it's a legitimate question. Investors like Doug Casey have been making money off world conflicts their entire careers.

Right now, I like the junior miners, GDXJ, EPD (enterprise product partners- an MLP), and Valero (VLO- a refiner). Once natural gas bottoms, Canada's Encana (ECA) looks good. Natural gas has been pummeled the last 2 years and won't go much lower. It's also going to be the fuel of the future.

Encana owns like 15 million acres of land in Canada. Their portfolio is amazing. I like the fact they are a Canadian company.

Take a look at the ETF XLU. This utilities fund pays around a 4% dividend and is a solid defensive play.

Finally, own some physical gold and silver. My preferred method is holding junk silver coins from pre 1965. You can buy them in $100-$1000 face value bags.

Do your own due diligence.
