The Federal Reserve and the U.S. military empire are America's double-edged sword. One reinforces the other. The Fed creates the money out-of-thin air to finance military adventures, and the military makes sure *wink, wink* that foreign nations continue to accumulate and use the Fed's dollars.

As a result of this nefarious arrangement, the U.S. now has both a military presence across the globe and what has become a central banker for the world. Moral hazard now runs wild across the Earth. Tremendous risks are taken on by financial institutions and governments because the consequences of those risks (when something goes wrong) can be offloaded onto either the Fed or the U.S. military.
