    Didn’t follow the link, but with 158 billion dollars, I’d probably buy a football team, or maybe several LOL

    I'm not currently a billionaire, but I know I'd be just darling at it.

    Ask Iran. The USA dumped a bunch of currency off to them several years ago.

    Wait, do you mean the $1.7 billion? Because that was money they paid us for weapons we never delivered in 1979, plus compounded interest.

    https://www.brookings.edu/blog/mark...iran-and-1-7-billion-sorting-out-the-details/

    If you mean the "$150 billion", that was Iran's money that was frozen, and the actual amount was estimated somewhere between $25 and $50 billion.

    And if you are saying I should ask a country, the US spends that in a blink. The 2018 requested expenditure in the budget was $4.094 trillion

    How about reserving one whole resort at Disney World just for all of us? We could get nametags with our dis board names so we would know to whom we were speaking. We could dine and visit and go to the parks for a few days before returning home.
