The people who are laughing all the way to the bank live in this country.
That's an excellent point about who has the problem, I like the way you framed it. Basically they give us oil, and we give them an IOU in the form of T-Bills. We default, they're screwed. Of course if it comes to that, we're a pauper nation and are screwed too.
