Sez here, yes. (http://www.voltairenet.org/article170083.html)

An interesting theory.

Supposedly, the IMF was about to come up with an alternative world currency to the US dollar, based on Special Drawing Rights (SDRs), but as a real currency. As we know, China and Russia have been saying this should happen for at least a couple of years. The author shows it goes back some years further.

A detail the French papers had (there's a link, but readable only if you know French) was that it was the Special Victims Unit (Dun dun DUNH!) who did the arrest and questioning, although by not turning it over to transit police already on the scene, were risking his successful escape. The claim is that they had the entire cell phone spectrum blocked for the entire airport, and the author says that isn't something a city's police SVU would have within its power, but would take the national security capabilities (CIA or NSA).

by Ron Paul


In November 2000 Saddam Hussein demanded Euros for his oil. His arrogance was a threat to the dollar; his lack of any military might was never a threat. At the first cabinet meeting with the new administration in 2001, as reported by Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill, the major topic was how we would get rid of Saddam Hussein — though there was no evidence whatsoever he posed a threat to us. This deep concern for Saddam Hussein surprised and shocked O'Neill.

<span style="color: #3333FF">It now is common knowledge that the immediate reaction of the administration after 9/11 revolved around how they could connect Saddam Hussein to the attacks, to justify an invasion and overthrow of his government. Even with no evidence of any connection to 9/11, or evidence of weapons of mass destruction, public and congressional support was generated through distortions and flat out misrepresentation of the facts to justify overthrowing Saddam Hussein.</span>

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>There was no public talk of removing Saddam Hussein because of his attack on the integrity of the dollar as a reserve currency by selling oil in Euros. Many believe this was the real reason for our obsession with Iraq. I doubt it was the only reason, but it may well have played a significant role in our motivation to wage war. Within a very short period after the military victory, all Iraqi oil sales were carried out in dollars. The Euro was abandoned.</span>

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>In 2001, Venezuela's ambassador to Russia spoke of Venezuela switching to the Euro for all their oil sales. Within a year there was a coup attempt against Chavez, reportedly with assistance from our CIA.</span>

After these attempts to nudge the Euro toward replacing the dollar as the world's reserve currency were met with resistance, the sharp fall of the dollar against the Euro was reversed. These events may well have played a significant role in maintaining dollar dominance.

It's become clear the U.S. administration was sympathetic to those who plotted the overthrow of Chavez, and was embarrassed by its failure. The fact that Chavez was democratically elected had little influence on which side we supported.

Now, a new attempt is being made against the petrodollar system. Iran, another member of the “axis of evil,” has announced her plans to initiate an oil bourse in March of this year. Guess what, the oil sales will be priced Euros, not dollars. </div></div>


.....and they have become enemy No 1 !

How about if we blame the anal rape o DSK, the anal rapist.

What's that?

You can't because he pushes the same statist agenda as you and you will never hold a leftist accountable?

But ... I already knew that.

I asked the question, based on a reporter's interesting story.

I don't expect you to understand the difference between what I did and how you've characterized it.

However, you should easily remember that on the other thread, I supported proper justice being administered to this guy for anything and everything for which a conviction is obtained.

Frankly, both the original reportage AND this story might well be true, simultaneously.

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>There really isn't any level they won't stoop to in order to deny the reality of the criminally incompetent, dishonest, economically damaging, Bush administration's failed policies, which cost our nation more than just the Clinton Surplus, but cost us our honor, our dignity, and even the very means of overcomming what disastrous economic consequence were left in their wake.
