LAX terminal briefly shut down

A Los Angeles International Airport terminal was shut down briefly Sunday evening after an unspecified incident.

FBI agents were investigating the incident in Terminal 2, said airport spokesman Nancy Castle.

Authorities did not say what happened, but airport operations director Barry Rondinella said it "looks like it was a mistake and not an actual explosion."

    A US debt default could hit on Thursday, and world leaders are second guessing the dominant role America plays in finance. Regardless of the final decision in Washington, confidence and credibility in the US has already eroded.

    In an editorial published by the Chinese state-owned press agency Xinhua, a columnist says the US economy has ‘failed’ and put many countries who hold state assets in dollars, at risk.

    “To that end, several corner stones should be laid to underpin a de-Americanized world,” the editorial read.

    Last week China, the biggest US creditor, started to make preparations for a technical default on loans. The European Central Bank and the People’s Bank of China (PBC) have agreed to start supplying each other with their currencies, avoiding the dollar as an intermediary currency. The currency swap agreement will last for three years and provide a maximum of 350 billion Yuan ($56 billion) to the ECB and 45 billion euro ($60.8 billion) to the PBC. SCARY STUFF!

    Every American who invests in Chinese companies should be tried for treason. Boo to unAmerican investers who would sell out the U.S.!
