Italy seizes 135 Billion in Bonds from two Japanese citizens. WTF? Italy seizes $135B of US bonds from two Japanese citizens - International Business Times - What the heck would that be all about? Why would they be trying to smuggle that amount of money? Are they trying to affect the markets, or the dollar, in some way? Maybe Japan want's to dump some of our debt without crashing the dollar? Would the Japanese Yakuza or Italian Mafia have that kind of money? I don't think so.
