When it comes to gold, we would say that 2013 is already the year of disinformation. The winners are obviously the mainstream media. It appears that in the era of information explosion, the world is facing an acute information shortage, worse than the coming silver shortage.

On April 10, 2013, the President of the 67th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Vuk Jeremic has scheduled to hold a debate at the United Nations (UN) on international justice and reconciliation. ACBH has called upon the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Susan E. Rice to reiterate that any efforts to distort the truth and deny the Bosnian Genocide as well as the legitimacy of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) will not help the peace and reconciliation process in the Southeast Europe region.
Critics of the scheduled debate are worried that Mr. Jeremic will use the event to denounce the ICTY, a UN court that has indicted more than 90 Serbs for the crimes committed during the wars in the former Yugoslavia.

Talk of Greece exiting the euro will end after critical votes in parliament this week on new austerity measures, labor reforms and the 2013 budget, Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras said on Sunday.
But Samaras's New Democracy Party and most of the deputies of its coalition Socialist partners are expected to push the package through in a slim majority in a vote expected on Wednesday.
Lawmakers should then approve the 2013 budget in another crucial vote on Nov.11, leading to the release of 31.5 billion euros in aid funds and putting to rest any talk of Greece exiting the euro, Samaras said.
"As soon as the new measures are passed and we get the critical aid tranche, liquidity will start again to feed businesses and households, uncertainty will end, sentiment will change and the fear of a return to the drachma will disappear," he told New Democracy lawmakers at a party meeting.
