I suspect this debt is much more complex than Greek bonds and Russian laundered money. Not saying that is not one level of it but my reading tells me it is much more complex than that. Truth is neither one of us could possibly know the full details but I will be willing to bet it's not as simple as you believe. Guess I just agree to disagree on this one.
