A great war leaves the country with three armies - an army of cripples, an army of mourners, and an army of thieves.

Although still in its infancy, the escalating currency war is taking a turn for the not very nice at all, actually, according to some sources.

Following on from George Soros, the richest man in the known universe, warning China to step off and get with the program, there has been all out whispering and in some cases, actual talking out loud amongst individuals concerned of where the money war might lead.

One young infantry man in the war against money said, "It's terrible out there, we were doing gorilla raids into enemy territory last night, but there were no gorillas, no chimps. No primates of any kind. Money must have got to them before we could. I'm not sure how much longer we can hold out against money winning"

Views and speculations have been pouring in from all over the shop, with many prominent financial forecasters at a loss to explain why money suddenly declared war on humans in the first place, although Neil Diamond was reported to have said "Money talks, But it don't sing and dance and it don't walk." Leading some people to speculum, that money could well be jealous of our innate sense of rhythm.

Stay tuned for more important bulletins than this one as they come in.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
