Russian Central bank has also announced selling USD and buying CDN. Nothing new, demise of the dollar seems open secret at this point. I spent an hour thinking about this and it seems pretty clear how things will happen. - USA is trying to cheat the world and not pay debt. - So they will devalue US dollar into extinction but they need a "event like 9/11" - Event is going to happen that will overnight put the US into emergency law and action. - This event may be some new comeback of type of Swine flu H1N1 or maybe another "terrorist attack" - The defaulting of debt will happen together with this "event" - Collapse of economy will be blamed on this "EVENT" - The world will be told, "sorry we had this EVENT, too bad, sorry"
