I just found this long post (via Bitcoin Reddit, that might contain a TL;DR).

The post is extremely long and rife with conspiracy theories. I'll try to summarize the main claim:

134 billion dollar worth of U.S treasury bonds were recently (2009) confiscated on the Italian border. Only four countries (China, UK, Japan, Russia) even have that kind of money. This represents either a massive, ultra high quality forgery (such that only a country is capable of), or a huge secret dumping of U.S bonds by a major super power.

    "As of November 28, 2011, media outlets announced that we could be as little as ten days away from a complete collapse of the Euro" Well, "six-to-eight weeks" have passed since then, and no progress...

    Perhaps not authoritative in conspiracy cases, but Wikipedia has some background.

    So if someone were to post proof here that the US Government had covered up a mass sale of bonds would we not expect the US Government to punish SE the way it punished Wiki-leaks?

  • @Chad - not if they just link to things that are already public. Wiki-leaks took confidential documents and published them ... I don't think this will happen on SE.

  • I am voting to close as not constructive. For situations like these the burden of proof is on the claimant to prove not the skeptic to disprove.
