How long can a government with a $16 trillion foreign debt remain a world power? The Americans have injected their paper wealth into the world economy and today the aftermaths and negative effects of their pseudo-wealth have plagued them. An empire, or a government, remains in power so long as the people under its power support it, but today the Americans have acted in a way that the world nations do not like them at all, and therefore, their international legitimacy is annihilated.
— Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in the Jerusalem Post today.
Clearly, Ahmadinejad is better informed that Barack Obama. Ahmadinejad knows that the U.S. National Debt is $16 Trillion. Barack Obama told David Letterman he didn’t know how much it was.
Ahmadinejad supports Obama. Gee, I wonder why?
