(en) Ireland, The Workers Solidarity* # 85 - That's Capitalism Bank Robbers and Robbing Bankers - Brazen Wolves, Obedient Sheep

Bank Robbers and Robbing Bankers
Allied Irish Bank has posted a 40% increase in profits, up to a
record e1.42 billion, for last year. At the same time they announced
that had paid back e14.5 million of the e25.6 million due to
customers who were deliberately overcharged for foreign currency
transactions. We don't know how much other scams are costing
customers but we do know that no senior manager (i.e. those who
give the orders) has been before the courts.
Brazen Wolves, Obedient Sheep
Although at this stage we shouldn't be surprised at the U.S.
government's hypocrisy, it is hard to believe that they had the gall
to criticise Syria for its military presence in Lebanon at the same
time as they are responsible for the disastrous occupation of Iraq.
The many TV and radio interviewers who allowed such hypocrisy
to go unchallenged seemed unaware of any similarities between
Syria's control of Lebanon and Israel's harsher control of the West
Bank or the American occupation of Iraq. The extent to which
these otherwise intelligent people can internalise the values of their
own political leadership constantly amazes.
