I saw the 2 order of magnitude mistake there, sorry about that. However I got the comparison from treasuries website where they list the amount of debt securities they have issued believed to be held by foreigners to the debt securities of other nations treasury holds. Remember since world war 2 we have been the major lender to every country in the world, both Germany and Japan still have long term debt that is being paid from that era.
Wars are expensive!
I wonder when the shock and awe people will finally realize that?
