The New York Times newspaper published an article today under the headline: In Cold War Echo, Obama Strategy Writes Off Putin

Extract:

Just as the United States resolved in the aftermath of World War II to counter the Soviet Union and its global ambitions, Mr. Obama is focused on isolating President Vladimir V. Putin’s Russia by cutting off its economic and political ties to the outside world, limiting its expansionist ambitions in its own neighborhood and effectively making it a pariah state.

Extract ends

The article goes on to claim that Mr. Obama’s aides believe his actions “have sent a message to international businesses, and that just the threat of broader measures has produced a chilling effect.”

The actions of Royal Dutch Shell PLC – the biggest business on the planet in terms of revenue generated, provide proof that the message is being treated with contempt, just as the oil giant did with U.S. sanctions imposed on Iran.

Shell is not interested in morals, ethics, human rights, the safety of it employees, the public, or any other consideration, except money.

For over a 100 years, Shell has been driven by unscrupulous greed as its sole motivator.

Shell funded Hitler and the Nazi party, and has subsequently done business with a string of evil regimes, including General Sani Abacha, Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein and the Mad Mullahs of Iran. Putin is but the latest  power mad egomaniac to be treated like royalty by Shell. Bowed to and fawned over on Good Friday by the overpaid bootlicker, Ben van Beurden. 

In June 2001, the claim by President George W Bush that he had looked Putin in the eye and “was able to get a sense of his soul” was greeted with bemusement given the sinister pedigree of Putin as a KGB Colonel. To be fair, this was long before the polonium fueled assassination in London, the annexation of Crimea and the recent estimates that as a result of being the leader of perhaps the most corrupt regime in history, Putin has amassed a $40 billion dollar personal fortune.

None of this matters to Shell. Basically, the company is willing to deal with the devil if that is what it takes to generate multiple million dollar financial packages for its fat cat executive directors, irrespective of their performance, honesty and all moral considerations.
