My premise in observing world events is based on “the love of money is the root of all evil”. Thus anytime a global-based event occurs, we must consider who has the most to gain from the event. Yes, there are real accidents that do occur. However, with as many failsafe mechanisms in place these days, you must consider possible intent behind events. There are many coincidences occurring which surround the departure from the dollar as being the world’s reserve currency.
Each country attempting to settle payments with something other than the dollar tends to get overthrown. This was true in Iraq, Libya, and other countries. Russia and China are moving forward with alternative settlement mechanisms. Russia is now being vilified for the downing of the Malaysian Flight 370. Israeli attacks on Gaza has killed more civilians (800 total killed in Gaza, mostly civilians) than the downed airliner.
18.2 million gallons of Agent Orange (Dioxin) was sprayed by the U.S. military over more than 10% of Southern Vietnam, as part of the U.S. herbicidal warfare program, Operation Ranch Hand, during the Vietnam War from 1961 to 1971. Vietnam’s government claimed that 400,000 people were killed or maimed as a result of after effects, and that 500,000 children were born with birth defects. My brother-in-law as well as many other veterans of this war died because of their exposure to Agent Orange. I point these statistics out to present a relative comparison of media attention to sway public opinion. Will we ever know that facts? Only Our Heavenly Father could wade through all of the disinformation being spread by all.
Saudi Arabia is the latest country taking independent steps to move away from the dollar’s dominance. Currently, the country’s central bank, the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency, has long managed the country’s investment of oil surpluses abroad, focusing on low-risk assets; it is believed to have placed over half of its foreign reserves, now equivalent to about $730 billion, in conservative U.S. dollar assets such as U.S. Treasury bonds and bank accounts. Saudi Arabia’s Shura Council, an influential advisory body to the government, will discuss a proposal for the country to establish a sovereign wealth fund that would invest some of its vast oil earnings, local media reported. See: http://uk.reuters.com/article/2014/06/08/saudi-sovereign-funds-idUKL5N0OP09020140608
Why does Saudi Arabia suddenly need a sovereign wealth fund? Could they be intending to dump their U.S. based assets? What unexpected tragedy will happen there I wonder?
All of this emphasizes the need to place your trust in Our Heavenly Father, not man.
