Prosecutors said Chiquita also made payments to Colombia's main left-wing rebel group, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Farc).

So Carl Lindner Jr. paid money to Farc? What's his Total-Farc login, I wonder?

/unless you are from Cincinnati, that might not have been funny
//well, it probably wasn't funny anyway

What an inflamatory headline... (the article) If they had put "...Colombian terrorists", nobody would bother reading it. I hate that kinda crap...
 
2007-09-17 02:46:22 PM
so next time the paramilitaries will ask for more money, i mean if 1.2million costs 25 million in summary judgements, then up the ante?

They must be bananas to do that ...

Seriously. They only kill Columbians, after all.

I'm confused: a banana company is being held responsible for arming a South American terror group, yet Oliver North continues to walk free.

And I think the stickers have acid on them.

My sister and I would fight like ravenous dogs to get the banana with the sticker on it.

I knew before I clicked the link that this story would originate from the US.

Here's our side:

They're terrorists! They stole our land that we owned and chased us away with guns. I bought that land with my own money. Federal Government, won't you help me? I donated to your campaign last year.. there ought to be some strings I can pull here.

Their side:

The Americans bribe our US-backed figurehead politicians for special treatment buy all our land up cheap, don't pay the workers any decent pay, ruin our country and exploit it for cheap goods, and we're not going to take this corruption and bullshiat anymore.


Then we label them terrorists! See?

This could be a slippery slope.
 
2007-09-17 02:58:52 PM
Boy that really sucks for Chiquita. They had to chose between paying "protection" money to ACU and Farc and then get fined by the US for dealing with terrorist. Or not pay the them and face possible deadly consequences for it's employees in Columbia.

Total Kobayashi Maru
