"the country's capital" lol Our county uses debt-based fiat currency units, not capital. It can print as many of these as it likes. And when the richest Citizens and their buddies get into trouble, it does - to the tune of unknown trillions in debt obligations. I do agree, it's too bad GiverMint has the potential to wage Never Ending Phony Wars. Thanks to our Progressive Central Bank, our Government regulated and government controlled and government created for and by, Financial system loves killing people. It's good at it. Once GiverMint established a Central Bank, endless phoney Wars were baked in the cake.
