    Yeah, according to the calculator, the US has more total assets than total liabilities, and therefore is able to pay its debt (whether the GDP grows at 20% or not). That is also confirmed by China or Russia (unless you consider the Chinese or the Russians idiots who don't know basic math).

Its called the law of diminishing returns, take out your calculator and see if its possible for the US to pay off its debt? GDP needs to grow at more than 20% to even have a possibility for that debt to be paid down; the US Reserve will of course not tell its gullible populous that the road to bankruptcy is going to be accelerated with rising interest rates. I hate to say it, but would rather take the current Albania low debt any day over the USA smoke and mirrors economy.

    Well, back to the future boy, you can’t get away from 1999 like a broken record LOL.

    There is no point in showing you why you’re talking through your hat, but simply say that the US is kept afloat by the petro dollar. The outcome of that little tussle in Syria will decide the fate of the US.

    Note that delegations from Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait are now going direct to Moscow not Washington. Even Israel is by passing Washington and going direct to Moscow. Russia has become the only power in the Middle East. Moscow will be the only power supplying gas and oil to Europe. Sorry but it’s true. I told you that Moscow will rule Europe.

    The US is not capable of repaying that debt and it only pays interest on the current $20.6 trillion. Money is lent to China, Russia and EU. But not one has a horrendous debt like the US.

    You need to break that 1999, cold war or Soviet Union cycle. The Soviet Union is gone; your stuck in the past.

    Its February 2018 not 1999.

    Hey Captain Obvious,
    Yes, in 1999 the US debt was $4 trillion, if you recall that was the year NATO spent a bit of pocket change bombing a sorry ass country called Serbia.

    What you don't want to understand is that it doesn't matter how much debt a country carries, what maters is the ability to pay that debt. The USA has that unique ability. That is why most any country would gladly loan the US any amount, knowing the loan is backed by the highest debt rating, that of the USA.

    btw, The USA has the unique ability to feed the rest of the world. In fact, during the Cold War the US feed the Soviet Union. In case you don't know, let me edify you, the rump Soviet Union is now known as Russia. And yes, Putin was one of those poor Russians that the USA kept from starving.

    Assuming in 2025 the EU still exists here are the options
    1. Northern Kosovo to Serbia
    2. The Southern terretory to Albania
    No other changes
    This would allow Serbia to join without having to deal with recognition issue

    Will Mogherini decapitate Kosovo?
    [link]/

    .....This court was established in 2015 to hear the allegations contained in the so-called ‘Marty report’, published by the Council of Europe in late 2010. After some hesitation, the main Western powers chose to take it seriously. In September 2011 the EU established a Special Investigative Task Force (SITF) to conduct a ‘full-scale investigation’ into the report. Its conclusions were unveiled on 29 July 2014.

    SITF declared that its findings were ‘largely consistent’ with the Marty report (including on the claim that the KLA financed itself also by harvesting organs from selected prisoners, who were murdered in the process, to sell them on the international black market: SITF found evidence of ‘a few’ such cases, but failed to identify the culprits)....

    Croatia did not resolve border issues with Slovenia, Bosnia, Montenegro or Serbia yet it was accepted into the EU. The most difficult is with Serbia because the real borders are not on the Danube. Those are artificial ones that Tito drew up and are not internationally recognised.

    I find it amazing that people think that joining the EU there is an endless supply of money. Those days have faded. The EU economy has not improved so Brussels continues to print money plus the UK leaving is creating big problems – too many asking for handouts not enough putting into the fund. Croatia puts into the EU fund 1 billion Euros and takes out 3 billion

    That’s the problem, people like you don’t see they only listen to what they are being told, lap it up and repeat it ad nauseum. Today, the US has only three combat ready brigades – 15,000 troops. The US Navy has 278 ships, but it needs 355.

    The US Air Force needs 1200 fighters but only has 923 and most equipment is too old so cannibalisation of aircraft to make others airworthy is a regular practise. It's short of 1000 pilots and 3000 maintenance workers. Pilot experience is at historic lows. As far as the US being a superpower that was finished in Iraq.

    It only bombs small defenceless nations. Why don’t they try a real challenge like Russia or China LOL?????

    In 1999, the US debt was $4 trillion, today at this moment its $20.6 trillion and $21.5 trillion by December. The US economy $19 trillion but $12 trillion of that is printed money – the economy is bloated. Trump is handing out tax cuts using borrowed money – that’s like cutting one’s nose off to spite one’s face.

    One more thing. China is the World No1 economy and has been since September 2014. Bet they don’t mention that one.

    I know there are those who are going to point to the Croatian/Slovenian border issue. The difference is that the disputed land is 50 to 100 meters either way and involve 35 families plus the water boundary.

    While in Kosovo the border line is a difference of an extra 10,900 km2 land that would be part of the EU and an extra 2 million citizens not 35 families.
    Those extra citizens would mean extra Members of European Parliament for Serbia ( more then the 6 minimum) plus extra funds from the EU.

    The differences between an internal border within the EU is a lot different between an external one that involves 2 million people.
