The *REAL* Underlying Problem ...
It was through reading a pun that I realized it.
While we might be slogging the 'American Empire' about to dominate the Earth, we aren't doing it for 'America' so much as our banker/investor class.
Now, they might be using the whole dollar/euro thing to whip things up, but when it comes down to it, they're *bankers* and their value isn't in paper, but in the stuff the paper is paying for.
So underneath it all, there's a much more pressing problem than dollar/euro.
You see, all the 'others' have already given in to usury as a permitted behavior (and in some mildly humorous situations, like the Xians, which prohibit usury just as the Muslims do, but are quite satisfied with being hypocrites, since the bankers build them such nice churches).
The Muslims still cut people's heads off and such for transgressions.
Bankers take that kind of stuff seriously (outlawing usury).
Personally, I tend to side with the Muslims (and true Christians, whose real name I'll use when it's appropriate, there's just hardly any of them left anymore).
