Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Kitco is a gold bug site.

There are any number of memes that originate in gold buggery.

The "US-invaded-Saddam-because-he-was-selling-oil-in-Euros" was one such meme and its close relative the "Iran-will-be-attacked-because-of-the Iran Oil Bourse-selling-oil-in-Euros" was another from the same stable, and moreover that was a meme which I knew for a fact was complete bollocks because the Bourse was my idea in the first place.

Nothing I have heard from my (excellent) contacts in Iran tells me that there is a general run for gold, although everything I hear is that their financial system is in deep trouble.
