OP links a tabloid, some other guys liks BILD. This thread is hilarious. Bad sources are bad!!
What actually happened:
The Bundesbank is obliged to count all German gold reserves AT LEAST every three years. This has not been done by the Bundesbank, which caused a public issue in Germany, since gold reserves make up for 17% of their balance sheet (you know, how do they know how much there is left if they didnt count it?) The Bundesbank now tries to "formally" count the gold reserves, but there seems to be some kind of issue. Jens Weidmann, CEO of the Bundesbank, said that he received contradictory statements as to why he cannot look into the gold reserves.
US newspapers now picked up on the story, saying that the US might have "spent" some of the German gold and that the reserves might turn out smaller than they should after the inspection.
Here is a US article
It doesnt look like any German credible major newspaper like the Focus picked up on the story.
edit: here is a pretty credible source from Spiegel. However, it doesnt say much apart that the Bundesbank plans to count its gold
Wheres John McClane when you need him cause it looks like Simon Gruber ran off with the gold again lol
To cite the german rockband "Die Ärzte": "Bild is only about fear, hatred, tits and the weather forecast"
In my opinion if you are dumb enough to store a portions of your wealth in another country for any reason you deserve to have it stolen.
The reason for them doing so was not even a good one during the cold war if Russia had invaded Germany it would of started world war 3 and since the Germans were not the instigators they would of ended up on the side of the allies.
But yeah everyone knows the U.S loves to play the role of captain save a ho, and they also know the U.S is terrible when it comes to anything related to money.
