They said the gold would be given out at a time when conditions are more suitable

Now, let's say one of you went off and killed one of these guys they want shot. You travel to Afganistan or wherever the gold is to be given to you. Then what do you do? How do you plan to transport it back home? What would you want ten kilos of gold for anyway? How do you plan to transform it into money? And what is the value of gold these days? What would you say if they asked you where you had received it?

Some greedy person would offer to buy it cheaply

Exactly. And when you realise that 10 kg of gold is worth around 100,000 US$ when legally traded, my guess is that you would concider yourself lucky if you got 1/10th of that on the black market.

Then again, maybe soon the same could be said about the US$ if Iraq decided to use it's vote in OPEC to change the Standard Oil Currency from US$ to European Euro, an overhanging threat which may verywell be the real reason behind the 2nd Gulf War....

(I added the second paragraph here after Browha had responded to the original post, just so noone would come to believe that he agreed to it all).

Yeah, but still, 10 grand is a lot of money to most of these people.

No. Not really. You would be amazed to see how much doe most Muslim families have. They just don't spend as much as Americans, and generally they don't feel the same need to show their wealth.
