    Why would a party with any kind of a backbone want to diminish transparency and something that discourages corrupt behavior?

    What we export to Russia becomes foreign exchange reserve in Ruble.
    What we export to US becomes dollar exchange reserve.

    This article demonstrates the danger of a British audience getting their news concerning the US from a British government run propaganda organ such as Mercopeguin. Plainly the British have no understanding of how the US government works.
