US Army Takes 50 Tons Of Gold From Syria In Alleged Deal With ISIS Reader 03/01/2019 (Fri) 15:21:18 Id: db5b40 [Preview] No. 14140
As the remaining pockets of ISIS fighters faced imminent defeat in northeast Syria, the United States allegedly gave them an offer they couldn’t refuse: give us your massive caches of gold - or die.

According to reports by Syrian state news agency SANA, U.S. forces struck a deal with ISIS whereby the terrorist group would give up 50 tons of gold across eastern Syria’s Deir el-Zour province in exchange for safe passage.

The precious metal, worth about $2.13 billion, was plundered by the self-designated “caliphate” as its reign of terror spread across Syria and Iraq between 2015 and 2017.

Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah reports that local sources claim U.S. Army helicopters have already transferred the gold from the U.S. forces’ base in Kobani, the Kurdish-controlled city that lies close to Syria’s northern border with Syria. A portion of the gold was also distributed to the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), which dominates the U.S.-allied Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The news comes after SANA claimed that locals witnessed U.S. helicopters airlifting large cases of gold amounting to about 40 tons from the al-Dashisha area in Hasaka’s southern countryside earlier this month. The gold was purportedly looted by ISIS from Mosul in Iraq and other parts of Syria.

The Syrian state media outlet claimed that ISIS leaders were on-hand to guide the U.S. helicopters to the places where the gold was stashed, “closing a deal by which Washington spared hundreds of the terror organization’s field leaders and experts.”

The claims by the Syrian government outlet coincide with reports by U.K.-based war monitor, the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights (SOHR), which alleged that the U.S. and its Kurdish allies had been sparing ISIS fighters in hopes of acquiring the group’s war spoils.

The SOHR said:

“The U.S.-led coalition forces and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) deliberately do not target the areas under the control of the ISIL terrorists and commanders in Eastern Euphrates in Deir el-Zour as they are trying to locate this treasure by forcing the ISIL militants to speak about its location after surrendering.”

I felt the same way reading this too. They often do steal other countries' gold reserves and yes prices are being manipulated via fraudulent ETFs flooding the markets and COMEX, to suppress the price of gold/silver. I'd recommend those who commodities as a way to preserve wealth, because no matter how much the prices are suppressed they will ALWAYS maintain value.

If I recall we stole Qaddafi's gold reserves too. Very nasty criminal activity is amok in our government and military. Very sad.

I really messed that sentence up, forgive me. I'd recommend those who desire to preserve their savings/wealth invest in physical commodities such as gold/silver coins because no matter how much the prices are suppressed they will ALWAYS maintain value.

I messed up my words after a night of drinking whiskey, so my head is not too clear yet.
