Uncle Sam is brassic and he doesn't even have enough left down the back of the sofa to pay his grunts

US debt ceiling crisis: American troops in Afghanistan may not be paid | Mail Online

even Gordon Brown didn't wind things down so far that his armed servants would have to go without their beer tokens.

Can't imagine the near panic in Munster Naffi when we all found out that we weren't going to be having our monthly rock-star weekend

A ridiculous situation, you think they're be able to agree a concession so their armed forces could be paid.

China attack now!

Maybe the septics should start taxing hot drinks. It's worked for us in the passed

America is too big to fail. They have until Tuesday to sort out a compromise, and both Republicans and Democrats will take it down to the wire in order to score as many points as possible. But the will compromise; the alternative is financial Ragnarok, and not even US politicans are that fucking dumb.

why? Greece,Spain,Portugal and Ireland aren't as dumb either surely?
1)The above mentioned countries could always at least hope for a bail out from other nations. Who's going to bail out the US if they go the shape of the pear? China? Smartascarrots could probably tell us the Chinese for, "Jog on, round-eye".

2)Run out of money for cops, soldiers etc and who's going to protect the politicians from millions of pissed off, armed to the teeth citizens? Politicians value their own skins very highly indeed, and none of them want to risk a Second War of Northern Aggression.

All that is likely to happen in the near future is that the US will raise their debt ceiling a bit and kick the can a bit further down the road.

Meanwhile the UK has a bit of bright sky looming in that some very recent developments in natural gas processing could ease the energy pressure quite a lot.

Normally I would agree with you and say that it is mostly political point scoring but this time you have to add in the the "true believer" factor of the Tea Party members.

These are people who truly believe that Obama is the anti-christ of American politics and nothing could be worse than having him in power any longer.

Tuesday could be an interesting day.

If they don't pull something out of the hat by Tuesday, then the Tea Party will have handed the next election to Barry on a plate.

What a brilliant plot line. The TPM is actually a democrat patsy?

From what I understand, its the Chinese and even the UK.

China: $1.16tn, Japan: $0.91tn, UK: $0.35tn, US Government owes itself $4.6tn (how that works I don't know), Remaining $9.7tn
