There have been hindu extremists for many years now, and they do want to institute a Hindu state. Just because people don't talk about it doesn't mean it's no problem.


I'm not sure what these "Hindu extremists" are called. Are you referring to Hindu Fundamentalists?

To me, there's a profound difference between Hinduism & Islam. For one thing, Hinduism is infinitely older.
Islam has only been around for about 1.400 years

India was Hindu for millennia before the Muslims arrived.

Most of Hinduism is based on the Vedas and is highly ethical & spiritual in its teachings. Probably the most tolerant religion in the world, along with Buddhism (which was founded by a Hindu prince).

In comparison, ... let's say Islam does not compare well with Hinduism.

Hindus have suffered terribly at the hands of Muslims for centuries.


Amazing how the topics often deviate into a totally different direction.

We are talking about currency here and it is swirving towards hindu extremism? hmmmmm

To answer someone's question earlier...

Lybia switched to gold from USD before US attacked.

Im sure the NWO tried to take over the world a few years ago. It was the guise of the British Empire. Didn't go down very well.

This reminds me of an article in the Wall Street Journal a couple of years ago. Apparently there is or at least was a movement among several third world countries to replace their currencies with gold. This was to keep currencies that are artificially high, like the dollar from dominating the market. I believe that the group doing this was from Asia (Indonesia is the country that comes to mind but it's been to long to remember.)

Sorry I can't give you a date or anything for this, it was too long ago and I didn't think to keep it, I'll try searching their website and see if there's a copy of it there.

Edit: Tried several searches and didn't find anything. I did however find that Mexico's central bank recently purchased 100 metric tons of gold, which is being done in several emerging markets, which makes for interesting speculation on its own.

Firstly on the matter of Hinduism and hindu extremists, of course there are extremists as in ANY religion (not so sure about buddhism) - it would be ridiculous to suggest otherwise. I spent two years doing extensive study of hinduism, as well as my girlfriend being Indian and thus coming from a Hindu family, and I can tell you that yes it is by and large very peaceful as a religion, with many of the peaceful teachings of modern religions coming from Hinduism (naturally due to its age). However, it is indeed not without its flaws - for instance one of the main criticisms of Islam is their treatment of women, something indeed present in hinduism. It is true Hindu women do not have to wear Burkahs etc. and there are many deities representing women, conversely there are chapters from several of the holy books saying things such as "women have the hearts of hyenas", and it is no secret that female infanticide is a huge problem in rural india due to their relatively inferior status. Also on the subject of muslims abusing hindus, i guess we should highlight the horrendous massacre of muslims in Gujarat by a US backed Indian government.

Now to the issue at hand, I believe this is what results when americans attempt economic dominance across the world coupled with failed foreign policy. Whilst - at the moment - the theories of going into Iran may be worthy of scepticism I wouldn't discount them as it is well known that Iran has been a target for years (especially in light of recent events, this and Bin Laden terrorist threat BS) and will of course inevitably be invaded by the war machine that is the USA with its "Your either with us or against us" policy. My two cents anyway (or pence, being british n all that).

I finally decided to have an account on ATS after a year. This is my first post. I believe it was Asian Currency Unit that you are talking about. That is ACU. Asean countries plus China, Japan, South Korea are in on this.

This is an important story and some interesting speculation has been put forth which actually seems to make some sense.

Also, in regards to this nuclear hell storm Al Qaeda warned they would unleash....who remembers Operation Blackjack?

The whole premise was....well a nuclear hell storm really. Hidden nukes etc going off in America and Europe.

I don't know whether it was proven as some hoax, but still, it's quite uncanny.

it's simple if you have something that can be broken into 45:1 like the rupee vs the dollar you are protected against even large charges in value comparatively and I'm sure there is economic value in partnering with India which is also considered economically an out performer.

It could be, all I remember is that it was a gold currency, and the group advocating it was small, maybe as small as only several hundred people but it's been a couple years, so things could've changed. I'll check into it and see if it matches up.

Edit: No this doesn't sound like it. What I was talking about was basically a gold currency, not gold backed but actual gold coins. The idea behind it being that it would show actual economic value and would benefit third world countries.

Also congrats on your first post.

2nd edit: I think I found what I was talking about, it didn't give the same reasons as what I had read but is close enough that it's probably the same thing.

Dont know how many of you have been keeping touch with the current events but seems the dollar is having a little trouble today.could it be possible that India was all ready in the know about the upcoming event and decided to jump ship early???

Some financial experts are openly calling this a dollar crash.Maybe once again this is why they made the OBL is dead Sunday.Because of the Impending Doom let's keep our fingers and toes crossed and hope they turns out for the best

This seems to be a continuing trend and has been discussed here about other countries.
Now India is dropping the US$ as a reserve.
Now that makes it Russia,China,India as well as a host of other smaller nations,your dollar is dropping like dead fruit from a tree with a gov that racks up debt that is not mathematically sustainable.
The writing is on the wall.

Im not sure how Britain will be affected by all this. The pound is still quite a strong currency.

"Hindu Terrorist"? HAH! Being a former Hindu (I was born Hindu, but then started making up my own mind around 18 or so) I can tell you that that's an oxymoron, right there. Nowehere in the Gita (Hindu Holy Book) does it preach violence against anyone for anything. Especially since we all believe in reincarnation. It doesn't make sense. TPTB would have to be really creative for that to come about, lol.

They'll probably say we have an infestation of Pakistani terrorists, and use that as an excuse. Who knows really.

These certainly are some interesting times we're living in.

To add, I wouldn't be surprised if a major earthquake were to occur in either India or Iran, in the near future.

From my observations within India in December and just two months ago , India has been looking for a way to drop the US trading dollar for oil and the talk was in their newspapers about Libya doing the same as well as China .

Why would India do this ? Because India will ultimately look after Indian wealth first and if they are seeing the US dollar die and they dont want to go down with it . Indians are very money savy . They trade in gold in enormous amounts . Its whole Hindu system believes in gold first as real value .
As far as Hindus being violent . Only within there own country really .
They have never attacked another country as there vedic code of conduct has not allowed this . They will defend Kasmere at all costs and the US knows this . But having said that look at how long they have not decended into full scale war with Pakistan over Kasmere and all the terrorism within India from supposively Pakistani muslim terrorist .

And they have had terrible offences committed against them via the muslim conquers in the past .

I think India has shown alot of restraint , but mainly they dont want to disturb their fast rise to finacial power . This comes first and foremost in India .

It will be the old throwing a stone into the center of a pond.The ripple effects will eventually reach all around the globe,throw in a bit of war,mix in a few natural disasters,add a hint of food shortage and we have the perfect depression.
Then expect a whole heap of civil liberties to be removed in one foul swoop.
Further control of the populace achieved.

no one would be - both are highly active seismic zones - Iran is one of the most active earthquake areas in the world!

Earthquakes in Iran

Just for interest - Damghan Earthquake, 856 AD - do you think HAARP caused that one???

The Brits didn't actually try to take over the world, and they were fairly successful where they did try to take over.

but appart from those 2 points completely blowing your theory to bits you might be right!
