De Gaulle's main victory

De Gaulle's main victory Perhaps Charles de Gaulle is one of the three figures in stories France, along with Cardinal Richelieu and Napoleon, which should be highlighted. He dared to challenge the people behind the US, the so-called. "Financial International", therefore, deservedly bears the title of "The Last Great Frenchman."

Brief Background

In the 1944 year, in order to control the financial and economic sphere of the European countries that were heavily affected by the Second World War, a so-called contract was concluded. Bretton Woods Agreement. It approved a single monetary standard. Since the United States economy at that time produced about half of global GDP, the 44 currencies of the countries that signed this agreement were tightly tied to the US dollar, and the dollar, respectively, to gold at the level of 35 dollars per troy ounce (it is equal to 31,1) . The situation changed dramatically at the end of the 1960's. 20 century, when the world happened history, somewhat reminiscent of the current attempts of several countries to reduce their financial dependence on the "financial international". Thus, China gradually, in bilateral settlements, transfers to the yuan and the currency of the country with which the transaction is made, tried to create a “gold dinar” for the African Union Gaddafi. Hugo Chavez nationalizes Venezuela’s gold industry, wants to withdraw the country's foreign exchange reserves from Western banks.

At that time, the first president of the Fifth Republic, de Gaulle, challenged the "financial international". Almost as soon as he was elected president (1959 — 1969), he, in accordance with the Bretton Woods agreements, demanded that the States exchange 1,5 billion dollars (then the remaining dollar reserves) for real gold at 35 US dollars per ounce. In the spring of 1965, a French vessel was anchored in the port of New York. So began the financial war of de Gaulle against the United States. The ship was not armed, but in its holds was "weapon”, With the help of which the French general hoped to win in this fight, having received financial independence for France. The vessel brought US dollar worth of paper to 750 million in order to get a real asset for them - precious metal, gold. It was only the first transfer of the French, which was presented for payment to the Federal Reserve System (FRS) of the USA.

After that, other countries gained courage - Germany, Japan, Canada and other countries wanted to change money for gold. Fort Knox, where the gold reserves of the United States were kept, ended up almost twice as thin, and the gold standard fell. The process of losing gold by the United States, President Richard Nixon, stopped; in 1971, he canceled the binding of the American banknote to gold. It should be noted that the "financial international" punished the recalcitrant general - as early as May 1968, mass social protests "began" in France, which eventually led to de Gaulle's resignation. And on November 9, 1970, the “last great Frenchman”, who is also called the “grave-digger of the dollar”, died suddenly.

And in 1979, the price of gold doubled - from 200 to 400 US dollars, by the beginning of 1980, the record reached 850 dollars (more than 2000 dollars in 2008 prices of the year), after which the blood metal cost went down. At the end of 1987, about 500 dollars per ounce, in 1999, the price dropped to 260 dollars. Many analysts attribute the current sharp rise in the value of gold and other real assets to the proximity of the new World War.

Why did the great Frenchman challenge the USA and their masters?

Charles de Gaulle was a real person, a man with a capital letter, so for him the dependence of the motherland on the United States, the NATO command was a "bone in the throat." The French general repeatedly asserted the right of the French state to do everything “as the mistress of its policy and on its own initiative.” Hence the development of an independent nuclear program, a special relationship with the USSR. The general, together with the Soviet Union, condemned the war in Vietnam, the actions of Israel in the Six-Day War in 1967. The release of the North Atlantic Alliance in February 1966. Refusal to use the dollar in international payments. In his understanding, Europe was to become an independent center of power in the world, and Great Britain was not part of its understanding of Europe.

And as a general standard that will ensure the stability of the world monetary system, the general saw gold. The world had to be freed from dollar addiction. So, February 4 1965, he said: "It is difficult to imagine that there could be some other standard than gold." A statement was made to reporters at a traditional briefing at the Elysée Palace of the French Republic. Gold, according to the general, "does not change its nature," this metal can be in bars, bars, coins, it has no nationality. Gold "has long been accepted by the whole world as a constant value." De Gaulle planned to restore the golden rule in the international exchange system. It was a sensation news circled the whole world.

It was an official statement about the beginning of the financial war, the war of de Gaulle with the dollar system, the owners of the Fed. The general urged not to recognize the order established after the Second World War. So, US President Lyndon Johnson (1963 - 1969), after receiving the dispatch with this news, said: "The old man is completely crazy."

Charles de Gaulle planned to make France once again a great power, whose voice is respected. And not to go in a column called NATO, at the behest of "financial international". For this it was necessary to make France free from the dollar system - this “stranglehold”, with the help of which the USA established its dominion on a significant part of the planet (in that period). The development of a scheme for a new global monetary system was launched by Anglo-American experts in April 1943. World War II was in full swing. And for the United States, it became the most profitable financial transaction: there was a stream of gold from countries that participated in the Lend-Lease program. For the rental of weapons, strategic materials, vehicles, food, the USSR and England gave away gold. If in the 1938 year, the US gold reserves amounted to 13 thous. Tons (American banks “warmed up” well during the First World War), then in the 1945 year - already 17 thous. 700 tons, and in the 1949 year - 21 th. These reserves accounted for 800% of all the world's gold reserves of that time (at least, the known ones). Therefore, after the Second World War, the United States was able to impose its own conditions on the Western world. So, England and Australia completely exhausted their gold reserves in the 70 year. Only the USSR retained its solvency, and finally the Red Empire was able to pay the US for supplies under Lend-Lease only by 1944 years (paid in gold).

General de Gaulle possessed this crucial information. From the secret report of the famous economists Robert Triffen and Jacques Rueff, it was prepared in 1959, the French general also knew that France’s participation in the so-called Golden Pool (this is a special international organization created by the American Fed and 7 countries Western Europe to conduct joint operations on the London Gold Exchange) is ruining the state. This system not only supported the world gold prices at the level of 35 dollars per troy ounce in the interests of the Fed, but also traded this metal, reporting every month to the US financial authorities on the work done. If you had to increase the amount of gold sold, the participants of the Gold Pool returned the US gold from their reserves. If the Gold Pool bought more gold than it sold, the difference was divided in a discriminatory ratio: the US Federal Reserve System 50% departed to all other participants. From it, Paris only got 50%. Economic experts reported to the general that the financial damage from the activities of this organization, caused by the Europeans, has already exceeded 9 billion dollars.

Naturally, de Gaulle could not tolerate such discrimination of his homeland, which was legally formalized in 1944 at the UN Bretton Woods Conference. Not satisfied with the French general and the charter of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which was completely under the control of the US Federal Reserve. He spoke not only as a patriot of France, but also as a patriot of all Europe: “As long as the western countries of the Old World are subordinate to the New World, Europe cannot become European ...”.

Paris, at the exchange rate in 1,1 grams of gold per dollar, for 750 million dollars received several hundred tons of gold. By the end of 1956, Paris has only 5,5 million left from 800 billion dollars, the rest changed to gold. The sabotage of Paris created a dangerous precedent for the USA. Their dollar system, the basis of their domination over the planet was shaken. For the French, the authorities of the Federal Republic of Germany, Japan, and Canada tightened. As a result, “Nixon Shock” occurred in 1971, in the United States 15 in August, the American president, speaking on television, announced the complete abolition of the gold guarantee for the dollar. As a result, the issue of the dollar began to be made on the principle of so-called. financial pyramid. Gradually, the planet was facing a new global financial, economic and political crisis that in the 20 century led to two world wars. It can be said that de Gaulle made his significant contribution to eradicating the hegemony of the American draft of the world order.

Currently, there are active rumors that the US is ready to switch to a new currency, the Amero, but before that it is necessary to plunge the world into controlled chaos in order to make it easier to give up its obligations. An indirect sign that this is true is the fact that Beijing is actively “throwing off” dollars while they are still considered a world currency. It invests them in the development of the domestic market, powerful infrastructure projects within the country, makes investments in the countries of Africa, the Islamic world, the countries of the Asia-Pacific Region, Latin America and even in Europe.
