    Does anyone else find it curious that it was the rest of the world that owed the US, and yet we forgave most of it/lowered the amount/etc.

    Yet when we are in debt all they do is ask when they will get their money back?

    No. I don't find it curious at all.

    Writing off Europes debts after WWI AND WWII was a damned smart investment.
