Default Is this the real reason for the Libya conflict?

TIP: How to embed a YouTube video...

This video puts forward the theory that the Libya invasion was motivated by Gaddafi's intent to create a gold-backed currency.


Africa has more gold (mined and unmined) than the West.

This would empower Africa as they would have a wealthy available currency. They would produce a high standard of living.

The Western nations have less gold so they would have less wealth. The paper currencies would become more irrelevant as it will not trade for real commodities.

The rich countries and rich individuals would become poorer and have less influence, while Africa would become empowered, self sustaining and end poverty.
