  16. Alice Zhang says:

    I am from china. The currecy is RMB in my country. Exchange rate is 1 US Dollar=6 RMB Yuan. I always think that USA is most greedy country in the world. the real purpose that USA launch the war is for oil or gold or stopping the other country’s development, never for protecting the people in the world.

    • Mark White says:

      President Eisenhower warned the American people about the military industrial complex when he finished his term of office at the end of the fifties.

      Unfortunately politicians in the Bush area seem to have worked for the oil industry and the military industrial complex to pervert the course of development in the world.

      Have you seen this video where Eisenhower warns the people about the dangers of the military industrial complex … the power of it! It can even control governments!

      Check out the video on this page:


      • Yes, Eisenhower issued that “warning.” But it was nothing but a cover for himself. He had immensely and deliberately increased that military-industrial-complex along with the so-called intelligence complex. Eisenhower vastly increased the CIA’s and military’s joint actions around the world, overthrowing governments so their countries money systems and natural resources could be controlled.

        There’s one important step yet to take to get to the top truth about it all.

        My website takes that step and offers The American Solution. American, yes, but readers in other countries will find the information valuable, too.

        Let’s MAKE it a Happy New Year in 2012!

        • Eamonn O'Reilly says:

          Remarkable! The founder of the “Equal Party” is a common or garden anti-jew. Obviously some pigs are more equal than others.

  18. endru says:

    And if that’s true, America attacked Iraq and Libya for oil and gold, that means that America is real evil; a monster.

    • behzad says:

      yes of course,but I think that there are much more other reasons like that, such as the Capitalism and the accumulation of money and capital in one area specially in giant corporations hands so just one percent(1%)people have the worth of 99% percent and it’s the rule of global society.so the poor will be poorer and the rich will become more rich as the medicine,weaponary companies etc.

  19. FADHEL says:

    The currency is used in Saudi Arabia is Saudi Riyal(SR).

  20. endru says:

    According to my opinion, black gold is the only reason for America attacking Iraq and Libya and you know that for sure.
