Who’s going to drop the dollar? China? The Yan is peg to the dollar; if it were allowed to float they’d lose their currency advantage. How much will their US treasuries be worth if they sell dollars?
Is the rest of world going the Euro? Please, the Euro zone has more debt that the US (as a % of GDP) and can barely scratch out 1% growth. Private sector job growth for the last decade is flat.
Please get a clue about economics before your run your uniformed mouth.

Dana2006: i have no idea where you are coming from. at least not as to why your hostility was directed towards me. I have never said one hateful thing about islam or muslims on this board at all. so i would appreciate it if you did not label me as a hater or incompassionate human being with regards to issues of humanity and personal religious beliefs. i asked the question about this because its a hot topic, and something that is causing alot of concern for people all over the place. i do not find it intelligent to make hateful blanket statements about people, and so therefore i would just like to state that just because i am american it does not mean that i am a hateful person. Do i think war is a computer game, absolutly NOT. i wanted a clear opinon. without all the bickering inbetween, so thats why i set a format. i would have NO PROBLEM WHATSOEVER asking about any other war scenerio with any other country. again just because i am american doesnt mean that i kiss the rear end of israel. clearly u have some issues with americans, which is fine, but your issue is not with me. you dont know me, and i have never said one unkind word to you. you were not obligated to participate in this thread, and the question i asked was of pure intention.

Sure they may be lots of people who wish America ill, this board is full of them. That doesn't mean they're going to do anything about it.
In addition to the above, the deficit will be half its peak by 2008 and the US represents about 1/2 of the world's economic growth.
You know, you’d save yourself a lot of time and typing if you just wrote:
“I don’t know what I’m talking about but I hate America, so I’ll just blather nonsense.”
