Comments on: After 25 years impact of Bhopal leak lingers http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate-uk/2009/12/02/after-25-years-impact-of-bhopal-leak-lingers/ Wed, 16 Nov 2016 01:37:11 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: di http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate-uk/2009/12/02/after-25-years-impact-of-bhopal-leak-lingers/comment-page-1/#comment-9030 Sat, 19 Dec 2009 19:31:20 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate-uk/?p=4702#comment-9030 I see huge blame on the Indian Government who accepted the settlement monies and conditions freely with DOW in wake of the accident. The Indian government has held onto the money all these years, estimated at about 300million as to date. The Indian government also took over direct and total control of the plant, within the conditions of the settlement. IF they think it is fine to have this plant, in it’s shabby condition with residential areas,blame them, not us.

Why don’t you tell how moral any country has ever been? Europeans like to bring up slaverey and Native American treatment. Well, let me bring up some more recent events from around the world. Germans start two World Wars, kill well over 6 million jews on top of the millions of people killed throughout Europe. Russians kill nearly twice as many other Russians in a bid to clense their nation during WW2 as well. Japanese kill millions of other asians in WW2. Chairman Mao kills as many other Chinese as Russians kill each other in WW2. Much more recent: Europeans treat Muslims worse than any where in the world. Proof: Muslims riot for almost a month in France to protest their third class citizenship in Europe. Europe is and always be a cespool. It is the moral equivalent of a San Francisco bath-house. Quit crying about American companies.

Consider the treatment of native Americans and the perpetuation of slavery even after independence. The list of persecuted goes on from there. Corporations are merely exercising familiar practices that go far back in our history before the existence of the corporation.Samuel Clemons was right, “What we learn from history is that we learn absolutely nothing from history”.

S. school. Over two dozen children and teachers were injured as well. During my litigation I learned that schools across the U. S. reported the same injuries. For more information see https://sites.google.com/site/nancyswan/ toxic-justice-a-true-storyThe United States is sitting on a ticking chemical bomb twice a big as the Bhopal tragedy. This time it is a German owned company on United States soil, threatening the life, health, economy, land, resources, and environment of U. S. people.Where is the public outrage? Why have our government leaders failed to protect the people in the United States from threats of chemical disasters? The answers may surprise you.https://sites.google.com/site/nancys wan/about-nancy-swan/december3isthe25tha nniversaryoftheworstindustrialdisasterin historywilltheusbenext#
