Union Carbide and ethics (ha!)

Ravana had 10 faces – OK that is for the Kids. But Obama has a few faces – of course the fact that he is not handsome is a problem..but yes many faces. ONe is the BP face – where BP will pay salaries of employees of other rigs – which Obama has stopped.

However Union Carbide is not guilty.

Americans standards for themselves and for the world is so different. I think they love democracy so much that they keep it all to themselves. All over the world they support despotic tyrannic dictators – if they are willing to give oil!

Read thefollowing news item I found on the ndtv site:

“Despite the outrage over the lack of accountability for the Bhopal gas tragedy and the failure to nail top Union Carbide officials, Dow Chemicals, which took over Union Carbide, insists that it cannot be responsible for any clean-up at the gas leak site.

In a statement, Dow says its shareholders will see no losses because Dow’s policy towards Bhopal has not changed.

“Much as we at Dow may care, as human beings, about the victims of the Bhopal catastrophe, we must reiterate that Dow’s sole and unique responsibility is to its shareholders, and Dow cannot do anything that goes against its bottom line unless forced to by law,” the statement reads.

Dow will not commit any funds to compensate and treat 120,000 Bhopal residents who require lifelong care. The Bhopal victims have already been compensated; many received about USD 500 several years ago, which in India can cover a full year of medical care.”

Clearly Dow does not see the tragedy of the paltry compensation of 500 dollars per person for the world’s worst industrial disaster that killed 20,000 people.

“Dow hereby wishes to retract the 2002 statement of Dow PR Head Kathy Hunt as to US $500 being ‘plenty good for an Indian’. The poor phrasing of this statement has often come back to haunt us,” the statement read.

so all the great guys like Warren Anderson, Keshub Mahindra, ….will not go to any jail…however if somebody had killed 2 people in a road accident he would go to jail…(of course poor Sanjeev Nanda he did not kill anybody)

if this is justice…i think more middle class people will turn to the mafia for getting quick justice.

    “I think they love democracy so much that they keep it all to themselves”

    Never read a line so true in the recent past. Dont think we should sit quietly on this. Not the first time that the ‘Amreekans’ have shown double stds.
