    Saudi spy chief says Riyadh to ‘shift away from U.S.’ over Syria, Iran

    By Amena Bakr



    DOHA (Reuters) – Saudi Arabia’s intelligence chief has said the kingdom will make a "major shift" in relations with the United States in protest at its perceived inaction over the Syria war and its overtures to Iran, a source close to Saudi policy said on Tuesday.


    Prince Bandar bin Sultan told European diplomats that Washington had failed to act effectively on the Syria crisis and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, was growing closer to Tehran, and had failed to back Saudi support for Bahrain when it crushed an anti-government revolt in 2011, the source said.


    It was not immediately clear if Prince Bandar’s reported statements had the full backing of King Abdullah.
    "The shift away from the U.S. is a major one," the source close to Saudi policy said. "Saudi doesn’t want to find itself any longer in a situation where it is dependent."


    The United States and Saudi Arabia have been allies since the kingdom was declared in 1932, givingRiyadh a powerful military protector and Washington secure oil supplies.


    The prince’s initiative follows a surprise Saudi decision on Friday to reject a coveted two-year term on the U.N. Security Council in protest at "double standards" at the United Nations.


    Prince Bandar, who was Saudi ambassador to Washington for 22 years, is seen as a foreign policy hawk, especially on Iran. The Sunni Muslim kingdom’s rivalry with Shi’ite Iran, an ally of Syria, has amplified sectarian tensions across the Middle East.

    Sounds like it's just a threat to the US to do what they were told and remove the enemies of the Saudi/Israeli Jews.
    It must suck being a puppet for these people.
    The US should stuff a few missles up their Saudi asses...and Israel's too.

    Switzerland’s Gold Exports Go Through The Roof

    Posted on October 24, 2013 by Mark O'Byrne1 Comment ↓


    The People’s Republic Bank of China (The Chinese Central Bank), tend to shy away from routine reporting of their outright gold purchases to the IMF. A sensible strategy given their implied policy of reducing dollar reserve risk.


    Today’s AM fix was USD 1,336.25, EUR 968.79 and GBP 825.76 per ounce.
    Yesterday’s AM fix was USD 1,333.00, EUR 968.68 and GBP 825.13 per ounce.


    Gold fell $6.90 or 0.51% yesterday, closing at $1,333.30/oz. Silver slipped $0.12 or 0.53% closing at $22.56. Platinum rose $2.94 or 0.21% to $1,433.24/oz, while palladium fell $1.50 or 0.20% to $742.50/oz.


    Gold inched up in London as the dollar fell to a two year low against the euro. The yellow metal is on track for a four week high, as investors buy precious metals on increased safe haven demand. Gold Krugerrands (1 oz) are trading at $1,403.75 or premiums between 4.75% and 5.5% and Gold Kilo Bars (1 kilo) are trading at $44,354.53 or premiums between 3% and 3.5%. Premiums are holding steady.


    The poor economic data published recently in the U.S. is signalling that the economic recovery is on shaky ground, and this has increased the allure of bullion.
    Koos Jansen’s blog, “In Gold We Trust” explores the recent surge of bullion exports from Switzerland.


    In it he notes that Switzerland holds four of the largest gold refineries on the planet – Metalor, Pamp, Argor-Heraeus and Valcambi. These refineries are estimated to be responsible for 70% of the world’s refining nestled in the Swiss Alps, and therefore a major amount of the world’s gold is distributed there.


    If you look at 3Q, Switzerland has imported 808 tons of gold in 2013, and exported 680 tons. Year to date the country has imported 2,420 tons and exported 2,184 tons.

    Jansen notes that this is a new record for exports for the small country with a yearly estimate of 2,912 tons for exports. It is surmised that 1,100 tons of the gold bullion is set to flow East to China or Hong Kong.


    In 2013 from January to August published figures list Hong Kong as having imported 598 tons from Switzerland. Jansen writes that although most of this is sent forward to Shanghai, however the Chinese are also importing directly from the Swiss.


    This is verified from Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) physical deliveries and from Alex Stanzcyk, Chief Market Strategist at Anglo Far-East Bullion, who Jansen spoke with directly. Stanzcyk said, “China imports a lot that’s not going through Hong Kong (or through the SGE!)”.


    In the interview Stanczyk explained how one of their partners had lunch recently with the head of the largest global operations company in security transport. He said there is a lot of gold that they’re moving into China that’s not going through exchanges. If the gold is for the government they don’t have to declare where it’s going. They don’t have to declare where it’s going in, or where it’s heading. If you look at the way the Chinese do things, why would they tell?
