Seriously, with these new US "sanctions" on the way, someone is going to take a shot over the fence for real. Iran runs OPEC. Nuff said.

There must be a reason behind the accusation that has not yet been realized.

If something doesnt make sense there is usually something missing.

Not that ZH needs me to confirm this article; my hair stylist is Iranian and returns to Iran a couple of times a year. We speak once a month and she told me that inflation is running absolutley out of control over there. The appetite for gold is crazy according to her. The climax in the middle east is a comin'! And soon.

dork face Ahmadi-Nejad is usually 50-50. Sometimes he states truth that no one else dare utter. Other times he says stuff like this. If he would stop crapping out of his mouth, as most of our politicians do constantly, then the true parts of his message would stick. Otherwise the world stage will gladly brand him and whatever true points he makes to be BS and quackery.

Hell, wat's this idiot screaming about?.

He has oil, and WHY would anyone not want the price of Gold to go up, except CB's,and Western soverigns.

The Arabs, and Persians should be happy as larks...........they have tons of it, just made them richer, and able to buy more war materials.

Has to be, SMS................................Short Man Syndrome.

so, their politicialized "religion" led them to blindly believe "on faith" that jihad has a higher return than gold and somehow it's OUR fault? obummernomics caused gold to rise. why not blame obummer or, is that politically incorrect? lol

Nope. Only thing powerful enough to create gold atoms is a Type II supernova, literally a giant star blowing itself to smithereens, during which time the heavy elements like gold are genereated during a precious few seconds over the course of the explosion. Ergo, this is why heavy elements are "rare" elements throughout the universe.

Gold can be man made in a lab, just not cost effectively:

I think the case is, would it be cost effective @ gold $36000?

Using the facilities at CERN they made a few atoms - probably not even enough to be visible to the naked eye.

I suspect the entire paper-short game is a grab-what-you-can-get ruse. As RP pointed out to Benny, America still has massive gold reserves.

I do think America and Israel want to throw the dice and start a Eurasian war. It's all straight out of the Zbigniew Brzezinski playbook: Eurasia has ahuge resources, America is a resource-hungry Empire in decline with lots of weapons and a lot to lose from a bloc of rising Eurasian autocracies. The ultimate goal is an America-friendly Arab Spring in Moscow, Beijing, Tehran, Islamabad.

Sad truth is Arab spring coming to DC first.

It's as plausible as yesterday's preposterous "Iranian/Mexican Assasinate plot" bullshit.

Are Iran and the US engaged in a "Who can get the stupidest conspiracy theory published in the media" contest?

Iran/Venezuala would have been more plausible...but of course anything to get Eric Holder and "Fast and Furious" off the front page.

Doesn't that seem a little odd to pop up suddenly?  I'm no Clinton fan but talk about tossing in one more misdirection just in case the whole Iranian/Saudi/Mexican conspiracy thing doesn't get the heat off of Holder et al over the Fast and Furious matter.

(And it apparently it didn't, since Darrell Issa has issued subpeopnas for all DOJ documents.  Issa is like a determined dog with a bone on this one and good for him.  Arming drugs gangs was the height of stupidity, incompetence or downright devilish intent, depending on what the facts really were.  I wonder if we'll ever know.)

It shounds like they can also just print worthless money to buy up more gold at the expense of everyone below them suffering.  Then again they'll get their wish anyway once the US Dollar stops becoming the preferred currency of transactions for OPEC.
