A few have speculated that the recent revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt that are currently sweeping the entire Middle East may not be the innocent, anti-tyranny revolutions most seem to suspect. While this could be a possibility, I had not seen any evidence indicating a specific reason to suspect outside interference or malintent in the preliminary revolutions until now.
I say 'preliminary,' because as should be clear, there is an oil-related justification for our intervention in Libya.
Last night, while watching this video, I discovered that in 2009 Russia, China, France, Japan and the Arab states held a secret meeting without the US considering a move towards ending their use of the dollar. Since we know that the invasion of Iraq quickly followed Saddam Hussein's announcement that he would start accepting euros in place of dollars for Iraqi oil, could it be that this recent secret meeting spurred US operatives to instigate revolutions in the Arab states? After all, Mubarak, like Hussein, has long been a pawn of the US who would be kept around as long as he does our bidding. But, if Mubarak had recently considered a cessation of Egypt's acceptance of dollars, it would make perfect sense for the US to move to replace him, along with all the other Arab leaders at the secret meeting.
As the article says, "The Americans, who are aware the meetings have taken place – although they have not discovered the details – are sure to fight this international cabal which will include hitherto loyal allies Japan and the Gulf Arabs."
Interestingly enough, what are the two regions experiencing the most upheaval at the moment?
Again, the wild card is Saudi Arabia. If the Saudi's dump the dollar, whether voluntarily by the current regime or through upheaval and revolution, it is game over for the dollar.
Clearly, the most important thing you can do, is prepare to protect yourself. And join the Silver Liberation Army.
