Tyler Durden's picture




 

Announcement that Muamar has slipped into a coma to hit within 3-6 hours. As a reminder, Libya had 143.8 tonnes of gold.

More disinformation as we get it.

My guess is that the fool tried to eat some of the gold he stole.

Everybody knows you can't eat it. Any of those top analysts on CNBC will tell you.

You may be right, I never thought of that.  All of a sudden as the leader of the country finding out that your own people in crime/regime may have slowly pulled the gold out and replaced it with gold plated tungsten.  Or that the investments or banks you had the gold at duped you and took the real stuff and left the fake.  As I said before I will say again.  I bet Ghadafi will leave like Mubarak screaming.

Of course, the YouK has a long, dick-tater ridden history. Makes perfect sense.

So, all this gold is going to flood the system? Gold down?

Nothing confirmed yet, Venezuala denies he is going there. Maybe he's going to his hometown of Sirt or his desert base of Sabha.

Apparently several senior officials - including the justice minister - have quit their posts after security forces fired on the Tripoli protesters.

Other rumours say more mercenaries have been imported. Unconfirmed reports suggested soldiers were once again using live ammunition in the capital on Monday evening.

He can stay at my place in exchange for some of his shiny yellow stuff.  I can provide him with his own room, free wifi, digital cable TV with a 32 inch flat panel, and I'll stock the fridge with his favorite snacks.  I'll even have his laundry sent out once a week.

Venezuela isn't bad.  His money will go further there!

It isn't unusual for someone to have a heart attack or a stroke after a very severe stressor.  the last one I read about was a grandfather in florida whose entire family was killed in a car wreck.  He had a heart attack on the news.

These old geezers like Mubarak really believed the people loved them and they were doing god's work, strange as that may seem.  They seem themselves as a father to the people and feel they have to discipline the children every once in a while for their own good.

It was a complete shock to their system to see that the people really didn't like them.  Both were so protected by yes men they lived in a bubble.

Non-U.S. spreads starting to blow out, U.S. bonds are rallying.  Bernanke & Geithner, LLP must be relieved that a bond rout has once again been averted.

"Bahrain’s dollar bond due 2020 fell as S&P cut its rating
and signaled further downgrades were possible, saying it
expected protests to persist. The 10-year bond yield rose 16
basis points to 6.79 percent, increasing 89 basis points since
Feb. 7. The cost of insuring the country’s debt against default
using credit default swaps rose seven basis points to 312,
according to CMA.

Default swaps on Dubai jumped 11 basis points to 448,
contracts on Qatar increased seven basis points to 113, and
those for Saudi Arabia climbed five basis points to 144,
according to CMA"

I gotta hunch...

Betcha Gadaffi's gold gets seperated from Gadaffi...where have we seen this before? (hint: Egypt, Tunisia)....He catches the "Coma" flu...

Gold hits $2000.00oz, the gov starts confiscating gold paying $200.00oz, sells gold to IMF for $20,000.00oz...where have we seen this before? (hint: 1933, FDR)

And Presto! The IMF announces a new international currency backed by gold, etc...

NOT!!!

The truth is out...
