I forget the context of the line.

>1. After the French Revolution, Napoleon became Emperor and gained control of much of Europe. Having won control of the seas after the Battle of Trafalgar, he set shore on Britain and advanced upon London with a 120,000-strong army. The Queen on the throne, Elizabeth III, was forced to flee to Edinburgh; there she was captured by the pro-Napoleon militia and pressured to announce the abolishment of the monarchy. The year was 1807 a.t.b., and the incident is now known as "The Edinburgh Disgrace".
>2. The person who saved her and sent her to the new continent (America) was Ricardo Van Britannia I, the man who later became the 1st Emperor of Britannia. However, all this would not have been possible without Sir Richard Hector, the Knight of One. For generations the Britannia Dukes (Ricardo's family) have selected from their subordinates elite Knights to form the Knight of Rounds, and the title of Knight of One is awarded only to the best of them. Ricardo's friend, subordinate and the strongest Knight of his time, Sir Richard would later be featured in a number of plays, novels and movies.
>1. Elizabeth III and her followers established a capital on the east coast of the new continent.
>2. Elizabeth III died without leaving any heirs; she was supposed to have chosen her successor from one of her blood relations, but on her dying bed she nominated her lover, Ricardo Van Britannia I instead. She is therefore famous for being "The Queen who loved throughout her stormy life."
>3. Napoleon died on his way back to France after the Waterloo defeat; although it was never proven, it is rumoured that assassins poisoned his food as per Elizabeth III's will: her last words included the famous line "I do not forget slights to my honour."

All that would do is pull about a trillion USD out of the Chinese economy, they're only hurting themselves. You think all of the other investors in the US would agree? You think the United Nations financial organizations, which gets a full 25% of its funding from the United States, would agree?
