Yea, rising rates push gold down and the dollar up...

...I appreciate that.

I'm saying (1) raising rates won't force China to cough up any gold, and (3) they can't raise rates anyway, because it will crush the banks and the government. And since supporting the banks and government is the whole point of gold suppression, they're not going to sacrifice the banks and government to suppress gold. Makes no sense

...couldn't have said it better myself
