From the NYT To Save Our Economy, Ditch Taiwan By PAUL V. KANE Any deficit hawks out there biting? I reckon Taiwan could be good for a couple of trillion, what's the hurry? Besides a war over the straits is a great way of justify big ticket Pentagon projects and that needs milking a bit longer.

Now as for Israel well the Saudis hold a lot of US debt as well and the Russians like the look of Alaska.
