Tripoli has fallen and Gaddafi is MIA. No doubt jubilation has overtaken the country, and rightfully so. But the brave Libyan freedom fighters weren’t alone in their celebrations.
Under the cover of darkness, a highly trained special ops team moved in to secure the Libyan Central Bank, liberating it of its precious treasure – 144 Tons of gold!
And this huge score couldn’t have come at a better time for the world’s gold cartel.
See, global gold handlers have been scrambling to gather up the 350+ Tons of precious metal needed to repay Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, who recalled his nation’s golden treasure just this week.
So now mega money institutions like JP Morgan and Barclays, who are on the hook for the bricks and bullion, can breathe a little bit easier knowing at least some of their obligation will be covered quite handily.
Of course, the bit about special ops is pure speculation. Almost as speculative as assuming Libya’s lucrative oil contracts with China will soon dry up in favor of other countries, like France and the United States, which helped ‘liberate’ the North African nation.
