Do you have any reason why they shouldn't?

Actually it's my understanding that the Fed has been buying a lot of that back.

Foreign interest in charge of US currency. I don't know, sounds fishy to me.

In a debt based central bank system. Yes. The value falls.

China owns over a trillion in US Debt. As it is now, the Fed just happens to be buying most of the t-bonds the treasury is offering.

The Fed isn't buying Chinese owned US T-bonds.

Well the immediate effect is a rise in interest rates. Once the US can't afford the payments on the debt they will either default or have the Fed step in. Then the currency devalues.

The Fed created 100% of the debt and owns 90% of it. I think. Only thing left to do is call the note.

Not all of it. Only $45 billion per month. The Treasury issues much more than $45 billion per month in Treasurys.

And that happens every year around this time. They call it the fiscal cliff. Which we went over a long time ago. How does our government fix that?? RAISE THE DEBT CELING.

You know even after all the tax increases and budget cuts this year we dont pay 1/3 of the interest on the 15 trillion we owe the fed in a years time.
