Bank "failures" , the Geneva Convention, and Collective Punishment

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Wed, 11/24/2010 - 19:57.


Collective punishment violates the Geneva Convention, but don’t the recent government financial actions in Greece, Ireland, (and TARP, etc. in the USA) constitute collective punishment of the citizens in these countries?
The Bankers went for greed, and the citizens collectively are  now punished by having to pay for that greed.
If there had been a war, the bankers would be up for trial. Convicted. Geneva Convention. Period. Full Stop.
But Bank corporations don’t declare war. Bank corporations declare dividends for their shareholders---and executive salaries for their pogrom leaders (mortgages, credit default swaps, Fanny and Freddie - like a crazy  mob!)
And then they lobby…for more $.
Whose to blame them….?
Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving (except to the bankers involved) everyone!
