It’s easy to bravely face the applause of your peers on cheap social hot button issues they all agree with you about–especially when that butt of your disrespect is the disciple of a Messiah who says to turn the other cheek–than it is to treat the leader of a giant power with disrespect when you are in hock to him up to your ears.

The PRC is actively liquidating treasuries right now in large amounts both through official and unofficial channels (mostly through Belgium).
