W*gs appears to be in denial about the massive gold/silver manipulation currently underway -- to save the US dollar.
That manipulation seeks to disrupt and control free market mechanisms. Adam Smith is probably turning over in his grave.
But others around the world, including Putin, surely understand what is going on. Two can play the same game.
Should a smart well financed state decide to spoil the party, the Fed would be powerless to stop the rapid spike in the price of gold/silver.
What goes around...comes around. MHG
