Who Funds This Fiasco? Major Foreign Holders Of US Treasuries

US DEBT
Who is actively buying US Debt?
 
As you can see in the official report below, aside from the two Asian giant creditors of China & Japan, 7 of the 12 largest holders of US Treasuries are tax havens for foreign corporate and individual entities. 
 
Tiny Belgium sticks out like a big red thumb as evidence of BLICS activity
 
This BLICS phenomenon was highlighted in 2014-2015, as the hidden US Fed Quantitative Easing factory.
 
Rumor has it; The US Federal Reserve has been doubling their US T-Bond purchases under the QE veil by using Belgium as a clearinghouse. The nations conceal their US T-Bond purchases, using Dollar Swap volume put as available by the US Fed itself, to double the QE volume without a full set of eyes.
 
The BLICS nations are Belgium, Luxembourg, Ireland, Cayman, and Switzerland. They each hide US Fed slush funds for US T-Bond purchases.
