People, There is only one Topic we should be Discussing Today.Submitted by MotoXDog on Wed, 04/30/2008 - 23:21
If you haven't heard yet, Iran has completely stopped using U.S. dollars for exchange of their oil. There are a couple other posts here already which I recommend reading, but there don't seem to be that many comments. This is HUGE news and should be the topic of all conversations here. I am completely convinced we went into Iraq for the exact same reason, and this is going to have MAJOR consequences. Six months ago I knew nothing about the fact the dollar's survival was based on oil transactions (until I saw a link to an article from the Daily Paul). After being convinced that this was the case, it opened my eyes to all sorts of things going on in the world. It was apparant to me that if Iran did drop the dollar it would be the start of something historic like we have never seen before - Including severe depression, wars, and who the hell knows what else.
If you haven't researched this, then you probably think I'm nuts. If you have, you may agree.
