134 billion U.S. dollars in a suitcase Bonds are probably smuggled genuine


translate.google.com

Hit for the Zöllner: The contraband securities valued at 134 billion U.S. dollars are apparently real. Die italienische Finanzpolizei hatte zwei Japaner ertappt, die im doppelten Boden eines Koffers milliardenschwere Anleihen in die Schweiz schaffen wollten. The Italian financial police had two Japanese caught in the false bottom suitcase billion-dollar bonds in Switzerland wanted to create. Von dem Fund profitiert das hochverschuldete Italien.

Well this just takes the cake. The bonds are real?
Why on earth were they smuggled into a foreign country then?

Makes you wonder why Japan's Yosano needed to say this:

“We have complete trust in the fact that the U.S. views its strong-dollar policy as fundamental,” Yosano, 70, said in an interview in Tokyo on June 10 before attending a Group of Eight meeting of finance ministers starting today in Italy. “So our trust in U.S. Treasuries is absolutely unshakable.”
Bloomberg

This just gets curiouser and curiouser...

Also makes you wonder why I had to find this out from a blog and german newspaper rather than a US news provider.

Somehow I can't really see them paying a 40 billion custom fine. I wonder which gov is behind those pretended Japanese. We prolly won't hear from them anymore.

I'd send them through the mail in an inconspicuous envelope....

With the return address of an old folks home.

Well the real question is if these bonds are real.. to whom were they issued? This dollar amount is too enormous to NOT be tracked. I would assume they would be tied to some large scale government transaction for *something*. Do these guys own Honda? or what?

Ha! Honda is definitely not worth near as much as 134 billion to put the collateral up for these bonds. I suspect a government as well.

I read somewhere that some of them are real and some fake.
Apparently some are dated so old that amount of money wouldn't have been available in single bond format back then.

www.bloomberg.com...

The seized notes include 249 securities with a face value of $500 million each and 10 additional bonds with a value of more than $1 billion, the police force said on its Web site. Such high denominations would not have existed in 1934, the purported issue date of the notes, Mecarelli said. Moreover, the “Kennedy” classification of the bonds doesn’t appear to exist, he said.

hey it was on the glen beck show today.It might of been only like 5 minutes,but at least it was on the MSM.They still don't know if they are real or not.One person said they might be from the 50's or 60'.Dumb question would they still be good if real and that old?

Additional speculation going on here too: www.abovetopsecret.com...

I wonder if we'll ever learn the truth about this. It sure is suspicious that the top MSM outlets have yet to report this. I've even checked a few NEWS search engines and entered a few keyworks (Italy Japanese bonds) and NOTHING comes up. It's as if someone is trying to suppress this story. And now we got both the Japanese and Russians talking UP the dollars? Sounds like a pump and dump scam going down.
