    This all happens probably due to the fact that the world understands, that the bankruptcy of US will bring a global crisis. But the day will come when there will be no more money to lend, no more leverages to use and it will all collapse within weeks or months.

    China has already begun to divest itself of U.S. debt. They aren't dumping it but slowly they are moving away from the dollar.

    I understand your point but do not agree.

    There is a growing problem of national debt throughout the world. There are many countries whose debt is growing faster than the US. Many of these countries have a rapidly expanding economy and have a huge need for capital. Others such as the US choose to run up debt instead of increasing taxes to pay the bills.

    As far as our ability to payoff debt, consider the following.
    The US is the 7th wealthiest nation on earth. There are more billionaires in the US than all the rest of the world combined. Our tax rates are one of the lowest of all the developed nations. We certainly have the capability to raise huge sums of money via tax increase but we choose not to do so, as it would damping economic growth. 52% of the national debt is held by the government itself, most of which is in huge accounts such as Social Security and Medicare savings accounts. So there is no reason to expect that the United States will not be able to meet it's obligation now or anytime in the foreseeable future.
