That's enough for me.
O.K., I get it now. The above says more about you than it does about Geitner.

The only thing DSK did wrong was to suggest that SDR (Special Drawing Rights) be considered as the new world reserve currency, rather than the US dollar. They had to teach the guy a lesson, y'know? Just like they did with Saddam, who wanted to sell oil for Euros, instead of the petrodollar. Just like Gadhafi wanting to sell oil for gold dinars. Next up? Iran's own Ahmedinijad, who's all set to sell oil to India for rupees and gold. The man will be punished for this, mark my words!

After awhile, ya get to wonderin', just whose toes do they step on when they want to by-pass the dollar??? If we could get the answer to that question, great mysteries would be solved....
