I posted the SAME here when BUSH went after SADAM!!
At the time Sadam was making an extra 20+% by selling the OIL for EUROS and it was the FEAR of the rest of the world ALSO going to alternet curencies (mostly EURO) to buy OIL!
GRANTED the EURO is also TRASH now but at the time there WAS a real ADVANTAGE to buying with the EURO and you and I went round and round THEN because THEN like NOW -- YOU don't REALY understand MONEY and the DIFERENCE between MONEY and CURENCY! :(
NOW the whole world IS pushing to DUMP the US DOLLAR as the global reserve curency and WHEN -- not IF -- it happsns all the US DOLLARS held as RESERVES will come back to the USA and make the US DOLLAR worth LESS than TOILET PAPER! :(
THAT is precicely WHY every one should have some REAL US MONEY -- physical GOLD and SILVER --- and what I have been saying HERE for over 11 years!!
