The central bank declined to comment on the report but invited reporters to a press briefing where it will present a new plan to manage the gold reserves totaling about 3,400 tons Wednesday.
Most of Germany's reserves have been stored abroad since the Cold War over fears of a Soviet invasion.
Last Fall there were some reports that Germany wanted to get its gold back that the Federal Reserve is holding. Now it seems that they're serious about it; apparently they will release plans tomorrow sometime to show how they'll handle the gold.
I'm curious as to why Germany would do this. There are plenty of US troops still stationed here. Germany is also (seemingly) to be the government that is pushing most for a more united EU. Could this be a signal that "TPTB" are trying to now make a move to bring the US to its knees in order to get the US populous "in the mood" for a more globalized, Superstate sort of government?
I don't know.
It could be nothing though really. I just think it's interesting that Germany is requestion this gold back now, given that the Cold War was over some years ago; and the Cold War was the reason why Germany had it's gold overseas to start with.
