Rebel-held eastern Libya is at risk of running out of currency within weeks, the head of the opposition’s central bank has warned.

Banks were short of local and foreign currency, said Ahmed el-Sharif, adding the asset freeze imposed on the Muammer Gaddafi regime was hurting its foes as well.

“When you get to the point of rationing liquidity, whether local or foreign currency, we are on the edge of a crisis,” he said.

Short of currency? That's no problem in today's moonbat crazy world. Why don't they just print more! Isn't that the right solution? We could help them out, but our presses seem to be tapped to capacity. Why don't they just scribble on some vellum with crayons? It's the like the same thing, right?
