Say No to War on the Korean Peninsula! For a Lasting Peace in the Northeast Asian Region By Dr. Kiyul Chung

Gold: Back to Money World (II)

27.04.2013 | 00:00 | Valentin KATASONOV

There are two interpretations of the reasons behind the military intervention against Libya – the defense of human rights and the desire to grab the Gaddafi’s oil. Both are wrong. The real reason is the fact, that Colonel Gaddafi was brave enough to follow the example of General De Gaulle. He tried to bring into life the idea of getting away from paper money in favor of gold standard. By doing so he threatened the owners of printing press or, in other words, the major share owners of the private company under the name of the US Federal Reserve System…
