Adding more to the story ...

... some veeeeery interesting dates in history.

1971 - OPEC meeting where they decided to use US dollar for oil (exact same year Nixon unlawfully ended the gold standard).

2000 - Iraq decides to use euros instead of dollars.

2001 - Iran switches their reserve funds from dollars to euros.

2002 - North Korea decides to switch all their purchases from dollars to euros.

Hmmm ... "Axis of Evil" ... gee, I wonder why those particular 3 countries are called that ???

2003 - Hugo Chavez becomes chairman of OPEC and proposes that all of OPEC switches from dollars to euros.

Gee ... why was Venezuela added to the "bad guys" list?

*scratching head* Can't figure that one out.
