...So yeah, I suppose I am somewhat baffled that this is allowed. I didn't think ATS was anti-American.
Are you advocating censorship on ATS? The post obviously a hypothetical scenario, and doesn't really talk about destroying the US, just beating it..
(or repossessing it?). How to hypothetically beat another country in a conflict is one of the main military topics on ATS.
In answer to the original post, actual "physical" money supply, if you can call it that, is all digital. In the event of a major disaster, there are
probably plans in place to allow local banks to credit/debit accounts and authorize cheques etc, on paper in necessary, until the system repaired,
Just like thety used to in the old days. The system itself would also be so well distributed and backed up, that it would be an impossible target
The US, if it remains on it's current course, is doing a pretty good job of destroying itself. No external assistance required. That's not a good
thing, and it's not something I'd like to see personally, but given the attitudes still exhibited by some of of your countrymen earlier in this
thread ("If we need oil we'll just take it.."!!!!), a bit of of slap with the reality stick isn't really a bad thing.
