Italian police arrest 2 Japanese smuggling $134 billion in bonds into Switzerland
The sheer number being involved with this is amazing -- if real, what government is tring to dump that many American dollars uitely, if fake, thats almost as bad -- as governments woudl be teh only folks around who woudl be able to make bonds that are so realistic that they cannot imediately dismiss them as fake...
Wonder why the story is not getting more traction?

ROME — Italian authorities say they have arrested two Japanese men who allegedly tried to bring $134 billion (C96 billion) worth of undeclared U.S. bonds into Switzerland.
Anti-fraud police in Como, near the Swiss border, said Monday the men hid the bonds in the bottom of a suitcase. They were caught in Chiasso's train station June 3 after an inspection.
Police said the two suspects were carrying a total of 259 bonds, including 10 with a value of $1 billion (C721 million) each and 249 with a value of $500 million (C357 million).
Police said they were checking whether the bonds are authentic. If they are found to be real, the two men could face a fine of C38 billion ($53 billion).

We should say we feel these bonds or from Kim Jong and say we won't honor them, they are void. Boom extra 100 billion. If they are Japanese govt bonds then we should say they are counterfiets and demand they be returned to USA for inspection. Then say we lost them.
