Is Russia Preparing to Move to the Gold Standard?

Russia isn’t alone in thinking what happens to those who attempt to abandon the U.S. Dollar as a means of exchange, which was likely the real reason for both wars in Iraq, plus the toppling of Libya, Egypt, so on and so forth.

It’s also highly interesting to note that this falls in line with what was described by retired General Wesley Clark as the U.S. plan to overturn seven countries in five years (see also HERE) in order to keep the next superpower from rising.

Iran is just the main prize in a larger game between the Soviets and the United States, whereas nearly the entire Middle East serves as a basket of proxy countries for both powers. The wars are absolutely coming as it’s now purely a matter of when and not if.

The outspoken leader of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDPR) has said that the crisis in Syria is just the next phase in the run up to an attack on Iran.
