Intervention in Libya was largely about gold, Rickards tells Future Money Trends

I don't really know what to make of it, but it's at least an interesting thought.

Well well well... Look what we have here...

On Dec. 31, the Department of State released a batch of emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private server. Information contained in those emails confirms shocking information that was first uncovered by TheBlaze TV’s For the Record in April 2014.

In the episode titled “Zero Footprint,” For the Record reported that one of the reasons Western nations had turned against then-Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was his desire to create a new gold-backed currency for Africa.

Retired U.S. Navy Rear Adm. Charles Kubic told For the Record, “[Gaddafi] was threatening the fiat currencies of both Europe and the United States. There was fear that if this started to take hold, that there would be some very powerful interests that would start to lose a lot of money.”

Emails obtained from Clinton’s private server confirm Kubic’s claim.

In an April 2, 2011, email, close Clinton confidant, Sidney Blumenthal, referred to the 143 tons of gold held by Gaddafi’s government:
Quote :
This gold was accumulated prior to the current rebellion and was intended to be used to establish a pan-African currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar. This plan was designed to provide the Francophone African Countries with an alternative to the French.franc (CFA).

Source Comment: According to knowledgeable individuals this quantity of gold and silver is valued at more than $7 billion. French intelligence officers discovered this plan shortly after the current rebellion began, and this was one of the factors that influenced President Nicolas Sarkozy’s decision to commit France to the attack on Libya.

Hilliary is bulletproof on this. Her frenemy barry is in charge of the DOJ so he will decide if she does get charged, which of course will make him look bad, especially to the libs, he will just issue a pardon, which he may also do before he leaves office even if she isn't charged yet. That would be a slap in the face if she hasn't been charged yet, but at the same time would save her butt if someone gets in office who wouldn't be afraid to follow through on prosecuting her. They are all so slimy it makes my skin crawl.

Wars and interventions are formed with the idea of ​​appropriating the riches of the weakest. A country like Libya, where gold investments are extremely large.
