I never knew we had such an affect on international markets:
The stock market fell Tuesday, adding to losses from the Dow Jones industrial average’s worst May since 1940, as BP’s failure to plug a leaking oil well dragged down energy producers, and a report said Lebanon fired on Israeli warplanes.
Indexes erased earlier gains triggered by growth in U.S. construction spending and manufacturing after AFP reported that a senior Israeli security official said the nation’s aircraft were targeted by Lebanese anti-aircraft guns.
Really? Why? Anyway, next time we won’t be shooting at does pesky warplanes invading our airspace. We wouldn’t want to create another market crash in the event we actually hit one.
