The US is not the debtor... the US is the Red Shield consultants who are everyone's debtors.
The US lends what from where....?
If you mean money then...... you mean the US is lending money they borrowed from the Federal Reserve who answers to the Red Shield money.

America will never fall. We're a god blessed nation, the killing of Osama Bin Laden by our angelic ministers of death Seal Team Six proves it. We're the only civilization on this planet willing to fight evil wherever it appears. We're impartial in our death dealings, whether evil decides to appear in China, Russia or any number of rogue nations you can bet your ass our boys will be there ready to fight and annihilate evil, no matter the cost. So what if our war against terror costs over 1 trillion? We can take that and more! We could triple that amount of money spent and still be fine! THIS IS AMERICA BABY! Don't mess with us or our allies.edit on 9-5-2011 by JohnnyWarbucks because: (no reason given)

"Good point. Many around the world dont understand that ever since the introduction of the US dollar as the reserve currency, which in turn tied the markets into a " global " market, if we fall, then all others will follow suit."
Well spoken my friend. Iv'e just been seeing a lot of people on here praising the idea of America falling, but fear they don't fully understand the things to come if that does indeed happen. Like you stated we are all tied together in a global market and if we fall I can promise we won't be alone. Be careful what you wish for people....you just might get it...

Yeah I know you never mentioned China, but the consensus seems to be China will be the next power. However I believe India is approaching blue water navel capability faster than China. And they have a huge population too, but they have way more very poor people.

to be fair, i didn't see any america bashing from the op. i get into trouble when i post on thoes types of threads.
that's why i posted my opinions here.
he was asking a valid question but i knew the bashers would show up eventually but i am surprised how basiclly civil this thread is.
most of us agree that it would not be a good thing if america "fell"
