THERE IS A CURRENCY COLD WAR GOING ON RIGHT NOW.
I am beginning to see a clearer picture.
U.S. involvement in Libya may not be just oil or that Qaddafi supports a new world currency.
Water - the greatest commodity in the world.
Libya's great man made river project is what is setting Libya apart from the other Northern Africa countries. http://www.goumbook.com/4729/libyas-great-man-made-river-project/
China's investment, which includes the potential of Libya being the bread basket of Northern Africa may be what is scaring the heck out of the western world.
If Libya can control their own food supply along with surrounding countries, U.S. foreign aide and it's fiat currency will no longer be needed. http://www.infowars.com/west-vs-china-a-new-cold-war-begins-on-liby...
On another note:
U.S. Treasury Department benefits from Mideast turmoil.
Treasury prices moved higher Thursday as a rise in claims for unemployment benefits and ongoing turmoil in the Middle East draws global investors to the relative safety of U.S. government debt. 43.7 cents for every $100 invested. http://abcnews.go.com/Business/wireStory?id=12943535
The price of the 10-year Treasury note rose 81 cents per $100 invested in late trading. Its yield, which moves in the opposite direction, fell to 3.41 percent from 3.51 percent late Thursday.
