Actually , there was a program (space warfare) using satellite that hold rows of 25 foot solid tungsten rods, the satellite are called "rods from god", when dropped from space onto a target, it would be the equivalent of a meteor hitting the target, but no radiation, and no long term effects. Check it out ^^ I don't know if they were "built" but IM sure with all this missing money they very well could be a few of them up there for shtf ww3 haha got you last type deal, never know with the u.s were crazy.

I just read the whole thread and most of the replies crack me up.

7 billion dollars, oh no.........That really isn't much to talk about.

Hell, the Walton's could pay that and still be billionaires.

Our government wastes more than that in a few days.

Well if you scale me up to the 4th largest economy in the world such as Germany, with a GDP of $3.57 Trillion, you could say $7.8 billion is similar to withdrawals I've made that did not make the news.

My instinct tells me they want the gold back before that becomes impossible. One day America will just lock down it's borders and tell China, and everybody else to go swivel. I don't think the game plan is to ever pay off their external debt.


I agree that the status of current affairs are likely making some governments who have "off-shore" holdings somewhat nervous, especially with regards the the USA.

Regarding "paying off debt": It will never be paid off, as it was designed for that to be impossible... and that is the real reason for the apprehension IMO. People at the top aren't stupid. They know when you flush a toilet, the water circles the drain and flows down into the sewer....

Why would Germany (or any country) store their gold anywhere but their own country is something I'd like to know. How dumb is that.

It's less about the amount, and more about what their inquiry says

Every heard the phrase "speculation drives the market" ?

That's what this is.

Im surprised they let us "hold it" for them this long. Sheesh, if I had any gold, no way would I trust our government to "hold it" for me.

I suppose in my world, if someone is foolish enough to let another person who they didnt usualy get along with hold their gold then they deserve the obvious results of its been spent.
