Silver Shorts not Worried
The big boys don't worry if they are short because if they get trapped they simply have the margins raised for buyers until they have to bail out.
Also, as FDR showed us if they get really, really trapped they just close the markets for as long as it takes.
So physical silver or silver miners' shares are my way to go.

Good point, and I agree for the most part. I believe ultimately physical silver in your position is the safest position overall.
The optimist in me would like to believe that the worst case scenario - where minors are nationalized - either temporarily or permanently - could not happen.
The realist in me is chronically frustrated with the minors' ineptitude in the face of outright management of the price of the product they produce. I do understand that they take their cues and their financing from the bullion banks - but enough is enough!
Obviously, the really big upside could be from the miners. But the absolute safest way to play is with metal in your possession.
