We started tracing some of the activities and actions of, say, for example, the Saudi Arabian king and the monarch in Morocco, and sure enough Morocco had an uprising. Unexpected by many accounts. Mubarak be ousted could well have been a big ruse for a bugout move for him and his billions. All of these uprisings could well be being orchestrated to give them an out. Stranger things have happened. It's definitely something to keep a close eye on. See who's being saved and who's being thrown outta the life raft or under a tank.
And hell, you know most of these elite and national leaders all have homes in other, maybe safer, places and billions stashed away (though it could be the ultimate irony for them should that money become worthless somehow...I mean if the value of my dollar crashes, won't the value of theirs crash too? I guess they have so many more dollars than I do that they won't feel it as much, though, and maybe that's the plan). This whole gold buying thing to me is sort of a con game too to suck up the last of the money from the people.
Anyway, just some quick thoughts on the subject. Looking forward to hearing more thoughts about this.
The Elitists already know that our fiat money is the equivalent of monopoly money... They probably have safe houses, underground bunkers, food, water to last for the rest of their lives

Why would a leader need to be forced out to bug out to a bunker? Why wouldn't he just do it if he knew it was time? And who would want an over 80 year old cancer ridden leader like Mubarek anyway? Can you even imagine what it would be like locked up in a shelter with Gadhafi? He's a nutcase! How could either of them contribute to a future society? I see no reason to link the leaders being forced out with them heading to bunkers for an apocalypse. Yeah, they have money but what will that be worth when the SHTF. Heck, if it was really time to bug out, why not just disappear? If the shelter wasn't hidden well enough to begin with it wouldn't be safe anyway if it was entered early. With the right tools, time, and knowledge ANY shelter can be gotten into by determined people

For some reason, if the "end was nigh", I doubt that Hosni Mubarak and Gaddafi would get first dibs on the primo bunkers. Not to mention the Mubarak family can't touch any of their one billion dollars and Gaddafi will probably die rather than leave Libya. It's unrest in a specific situation in the world--and many of these countries were not stable to begin with. Other times that have included massive regional unrest includes all of Eastern Europe at the end of the 80s. It's a phase. Welcome to history.

You know, this could be very possible.
Assuming they are "bugging out" so the middle east is taken care of.....
But then you have to ask, what about america? Then when you look at the headlines, you see things like
GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN LOOMS.
Possibly by march 4th the us government will begin to shut down. Is that the perfect time for a lot of the elites to fade into the background? Is that how the americans are going to pull it off?

But, my argument against this would be why would TPTB want to save these old school dictators?
Dictator or Mother freakin' Teresa, if you've got the money then they have a cozy little cot in that bunker with your name written all over it.
