Why did the west destabilize Ukraine? Here's a possibility
At 2 a.m. this morning [March 7] an unmarked transport plane was on the runway at Borispol Airport (right) [east of Kiev]. According to airport staff, before the plane came to the airport, four trucks and two Volkswagen minibuses arrived, all the truck license plates missing.
Сегодня ночью из Fifteen people in black uniforms, masks, and body armor stepped out, some armed with machine guns. They loaded the plane with more than 40 heavy boxes.
After that a mysterious man arrived and entered the plane.
All loading was done in a hurry.
The plane took off on an emergency basis.
Those who saw this mysterious special operation immediately notified the airport officials, who told the callers not to meddle in other people’s affairs.
Later a returned call from a senior official of the former Ministry of Revenue reported that tonight, on the orders of one of the new leaders of Ukraine, the United States had taken custody of all the gold reserves in Ukraine.”
A spokesman for the New York Fed said simply: “Any inquiry regarding gold accounts should be directed to the account holder. You may want to contact the National Bank of Ukraine to discuss this report.”
Is this true? As near as I can tell, the ultimate source for this story is a pro-Russian news journal called Iskra. A lot of people will tell you not to trust that source, and a lot of people may be right to feel that way. On the other hand, Iskra may have uncovered something genuinely intriguing; further investigation is warranted.
The only other place with some independent news about the alleged gold heist is called King World News. This site seems to be a clubhouse for gold bugs and Celente admirers. Caveat lector
, and all that...but check it out
The following is an excerpt from an interview with one William Kaye, a former hedge fund manager at Goldman Sachs:
Eric King: “Whether the United States is taking down Saddam Hussein in Iraq, or Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, there always seems to be gold at the end of the rainbow, which the U.S. then appropriates.”
Kaye: “That’s a good point, Eric. The United States installed a former banker in Ukraine who is very friendly to the West. He is also a guy with central bank experience. This would have been his first major decision to transport that gold out of Ukraine to the United States.
I think anybody with any active brain cells knows that just like Germany, Ukraine will have to wait a very long time, and very likely will never see that gold again. Meaning, that gold is gone.”
Let's be careful here. I've always thought that gold and silver bugs were kind of loony. They are forever telling us to buy precious metals because soon, very soon, absolutely everything will be totally worthless except gold and silver. You know when I first heard that rap? Before disco
So color me skeptical. But also somewhat intrigued.
