Chronicle of a Coup Foretold?

The Daily Bell makes the call — Ghana to Buy Oil With Gold Instead of USD. Next for US Led Coup? An excerpt:

The US petrodollar buttresses America’s position as the world’s sole superpower. Wars have been waged against much more powerful foes than Ghana to maintain the petrodollar’s dominance.

Libyan president Muammar Gaddafi tried out something similar to Ghana’s plans about a decade ago, and now he’s six feet under while his former country has devolved into a failed state with literal slave auctions….

[I]n public, the illegal invasion of Libya was framed as a liberation effort to free Africans from oppression. In private, it was all about oil and gold and raw geopolitical power….

Black Lives Matter greatly to Democrats, except when they have natural resources and don’t cooperate with the petrodollar program.

All of this provokes the obvious question: Is Ghana playing with fire here? How long until they are similarly liberated by the liberal and loving Democrats?
