“Iraq Story from a Friend” by Jesse C – 1.8.23


Entry Submitted by Jesse C at 1:23 PM ET on January 8, 2023

I wanted to share this.

My wife and I just had some friends over for lunch.  

The husband is originally from Trinidad. He is a hoot. He has been everywhere I have asked him about from Nepal to my hometown in Michigan. Because of his extensive world view, I decided to ask him if he knew about the RV and owned any Dinar. He did not, but he was not surprised by me in the slightest when I explained the RV. As you probably know from being in C.R. Trinidad is close to Venezuela. His father used to work for a Venezuelan oil company. I told him that the information that I am getting is that Iraq has 900 tons of gold that they are sitting on which would RV the Dinar to $10. He simply laughed at that. Not because he thought that a 10,000X for the Dinar was incredible, but because he said that Iraq probably had WAY more gold than 900 tons. He then explained how all through the 80’s Venezuela was shipping tankers full of gold to Iraq because Saddam wanted to rebuild the Babylon “gardens”. The US Military took a small sum of Saddam’s gold, but nothing close to anything significant.

Just thought you’d think that was an interesting story.  

It is not everyday that I am received; so for me this was very satisfying.
