"According to the IMF, Libya’s Central Bank is 100% state owned. The IMF estimates that the bank has nearly 144 tons of gold in its vaults. It is significant that in the months running up to the UN resolution that allowed the US and its allies to send troops into Libya, Muammar al-Qaddafi was openly advocating the creation of a new currency that would rival the dollar and the euro. In fact, he called upon African and Muslim nations to join an alliance that would make this new currency, the gold dinar, their primary form of money and foreign exchange. They would sell oil and other resources to the US and the rest of the world only for gold dinars."

So nothing new for ATS but fact it made Blacklisted is great just one little hop to the mainstream now.
So anyone disagree with any of this? And yep our governments go to war for the same banks who they helped rape you out of your home and your paychecks... If you dont like it maybe its time express that with your vote. The USA has at least 2 great canidates Ron Paul and Gary Johnson so if you want a real change support one of them with all you got.

btw poles are showing the NDP are ahead of the libs and just behind the cons here in Canada. (clearly we are also sick of the bs from our leaders)

I wouldn't expect this thread to go very far. Everytime somebody shifts the Libya discussion from oil to bankers being the root causes, the discussion seem to stop dead in their tracks. Here's a good example. A thread that seemed to be getting a good discussion about the rebels got all but ignored after the central bank idea was brought up and then a few more replies only trickled in after that.

Yep its not something TPTB want us talking about and wahts more most of us havnt finished connecting the dots. But fact is the Banks and those controlling them are behind just about every war... Hopefully we can help a few more peeps see that here.

That's mostly because the people in the US still wants to believe the good (US) vs evil (Libya) fight as usual nobody wants to know about the hidden reasons behind the propaganda of going after oil producing countries that wants to challenge the status quo and big banks monopoly.

In this world is actually countries that are not slaves to the big bank mafia.

All people wants to hear is how US is a mighty enemy against the evildoers and a winner.


In this news article back in March it was claiming that Gadhafi was collecting the nations gold to run away with it.


According to reports, Gadhafi is fast collecting all the gold available in the country after the allied forces strengthened their offences and attacked Tripoli several times overnight.

The military action follows economic sanctions and a freeze of assets associated with Muammar Gaddafi.

Libya’s central bank, Libyan Central Bank currently holds about 144 tons of gold. That much of gold is worth something like $6.5, $7 billion at the moment at current prices.


www.commodityonline.com...

Supposedly Gadhafi was to sell that gold for cash with Saudi Arabia's help.

The problem with Libya is that even with all the US sanctions they have actually bloom economically thanks to their gold reserves.

One more reason to destabilized the nation steal their (peoples gold and oil) I mean protect the peoples gold and their oil.

heres something interesting I read, certainly shines a light on why the French were so vocal and quick to support the uprising / regime change.

The Lies Behind The West's War On Libya


African Monetary Fund, African Central Bank, African Investment Bank The US$30 billion frozen by Mr Obama belong to the Libyan Central Bank and had been earmarked as the Libyan contribution to three key projects which would add the finishing touches to the African federation – the African Investment Bank in Syrte, Libya, the establishment in 2011 of the African Monetary Fund to be based in Yaounde with a US$42 billion capital fund and the Abuja-based African Central Bank in Nigeria which when it starts printing African money will ring the death knell for the CFA franc through which Paris has been able to maintain its hold on some African countries for the last fifty years. It is easy to understand the French wrath against Gaddafi.




The African Monetary Fund is expected to totally supplant the African activities of the International Monetary Fund which, with only US$25 billion, was able to bring an entire continent to its knees and make it swallow questionable privatisation like forcing African countries to move from public to private monopolies. No surprise then that on 16-17 December 2010, the Africans unanimously rejected attempts by Western countries to join the African Monetary Fund, saying it was open only to African nations.


Its strange to think the we here debating this, have rights and freedoms we believe are worth defending, yet we're each saddled with debt thrust on use by the system. The Libyans are fighting for freedom and choice but are each relatively debt free.

It doesnt surprise me, the protests were probably sparked by electromagnetic devices.
