In case you missed it:
DPRK announced plan to trade excusively in Euros:
and they were branded Evil by the Bush Administration.
Iraq switched oil trade to Euro:
and they were attacked.
Russia switches its trading to the Euro:
just in time for the New Cold War.
Syria switches to the Euro:
finds themselves in the midst of a media blackout,
with certain targets rediscovering the Stone Age,
with Israel's help,
since it was back into that which
they were (or were not) bombed
(to be fair, this may have had to do with
the missing nuclear device)
Is this a trend?
Robert Newman, of "The History of Oil," certainly thinks so. And he is much wittier, I would wager:
Libya was set to trade oil in gold dinars:
but isn't it odd how they were leveled by NATO
before this could get aff the ground?
and what happened to all Qaddhaffi's gold?
Iran is set to switch from dollars to Euros on March 20th.
Be seeing you.
