I see you now have two mindless friends, ‘USCitizen’ and ‘LondonLad’ staunchly defending Royal Dutch Shell. Hmmm. It would appear to me that the propaganda guys on both sides of the pond appear to have gotten into the act. I seriously doubt these people really exist. I wonder if they coordinate their responses ?
I remember a line from a movie, ‘A Few Good Men’, I believe, that went something like : ‘You want the truth?! You really want the truth?!!…… Well, you can’t handle the truth.!!’ In the movie the truth turned out to be rather ‘dirty and ugly’.
Well, I would say those good old loyal Shell boys/girls on both sides of the pond probably can’t or won’t ‘Handle the truth.’ They have bought into the system. But objective and unbiased people know that Shell runs its business in a very dirty and ugly fashion, and behind a pretense of being a ‘good corporate citizen’.
Shell makes great effort to let the world know how good they are. But self -praise is no praise, and the only praise RDS seems to be able to generate comes out of their own propaganda machine.
So what is new?
