It’s all so easy

This Article Headline in a South African “e-news” publication called Fin24 attracted my attention.

 StanChart in $340m Iran settlement

Wednesday, 15 August 2012

Standard Chartered will pay $340m to New York’s bank regulator over transactions linked to Iran, in a speedily arranged deal likely to cheer its shareholders.

StanChart CEO takes charge of Iran talks

Cover-up, not Iran, may nail StanChart

StanChart attack ‘a US conspiracy’

What was the whole deal?  Guess $340m times 10, giving you over $3bn; or add two more zeroes for over $3 trillion.  Be my guest.

 Now just think about it; it’s all over in days.  Money flashes over the Internet in mille-seconds.  However, think about the logistics for the “crime” and the hardware required to move the bounty for which the little fine is offered to squash prosecution for the crime.

 A last question, please?  Why don’t we hear a word from Russia and China?  Well, their minds may perhaps be occupied elsewhere.

 Maybe they are thinking how long America can survive a Free Internet, or maybe even where to hoist their flags when they drop over to announce for the World to see the expansion of their property.

      Thankee thee Great Elcampeador

      This thing stinks to high heavens and needs to be probed right down to the cesspool at the bottom. It looks all too easy with a little fine and a slap on the wrist.
