this isn't a speculative move on someone's part... this is sheer market manipulation... it will be good for the U.S. in the short term... until they decide to cash out... then we will plummet faster than you could ever imagine...
Its all about manipulation at this point...

Well said, the only problem is our markets aren't open.
Worst case scenario, it is a calculated move to do exactly what you said, increase the dollar temporarily then reverse the move and tank the dollar.
That would set off a bond market dislocation - just another form of disaster for the US.
I've NEVER seen Karl get worked up like this, and I openly admit that he knows WAY more than I do about FX

So the cashing out would be the end - basically - and this is the manipulative move?
To leave us with nothing at all. So we go under for good?
Probably Asia - because the have the most to gain - and they own us?
