Like Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi was getting ready to lead a march to an Islamic Dinar set against a gold standard. Sane money, in other words. ZOGBux Central was not pleased by this development and had a lot of rabble rousers already in place to mount a charge against the "evil dictator" that the U.S. had been perfectly content to have in power there for the past thirty years.
This is Iraq all over again and it's getting to be an expensive way to keep your dollar afloat that Kwanzania can't afford to keep up. It is possible a conversion to a gold-backed Dinar would mean Kwanzans could no longer afford the oil of the Middle East and China would simply buy the lot at market rates.
If you'll just think about this a little, you'll see how utterly fragile the situation is right now. It's a powderkeg. The Kwa loses in whatever scenario you run through, trust me. I've run it ten thousand times in my head and it always ends with Kwanzania in flames, the residents eating babies and nuclear war in the air.
