Did you see what happened to the $US yesterday? In markets that class movements of one tenth of a cent as dramatic, a two cents drop in the value of the US dollar against the pound and the Euro should make people sit up and take notice.
Well Little Nicky Machiavelli did warn you what was coming. Good to see others are catching on at last

April 07, 2014 “ICH” – The Obama regime has issued simultaneous threats to the enemy it is making out of Russia and to its European NATO allies on which Washington is relying to support sanctions on Russia. This cannot end well.
As even Americans living in a controlled media environment are aware, Europeans, South Americans, and Chinese are infuriated that the National Stasi Agency is spying on their communications. NSAs affront to legality, the US Constitution, and international diplomatic norms is unprecedented. Yet, the spying continues, while Congress sits sucking its thumb and betraying its oath to defend the Constitution of the United States.
In Washington mumbo-jumbo from the executive branch about national security suffices to negate statutory law and Constitutional requirements. Western Europe, seeing that the White House, Congress and the Federal Courts are impotent and unable to rein-in the Stasi Police State, has decided to create a European communication system that excludes US companies in order to protect the privacy of European citizens and government communications from the Washington Stasi.
The Obama regime, desperate that no individual and no country escape its spy net, denounced Western Europes intention to protect the privacy of its communications as a violation of trade laws.
Obamas US Trade Representative, who has been negotiating secret trade agreements in Europe and Asia that give US corporations immunity to the laws of all countries that sign the agreements, has threatened WTO penalties if Europes communications network excludes the US companies that serve as spies for NSA. Washington in all its arrogance has told its most necessary allies that if you dont let us spy on you, we will use WTO to penalize you.
And to make things worse:
