    US ‘threatens Ecuador with trade sanctions


    all about the money....

    US ‘threatened Ecuador with trade sanctions’ if it introduced UN breastfeeding resolution


    The US had supposedly asked for language asking governments to “protect, promote, and support breastfeeding” to be removed. The resolution ultimately passed but not before world health officials were shocked at the behaviour of the US delegation at the May UN World Health Assembley in Geneva, the New York Timesreported.

    Ecuadorians, facing having important military aid from the US rescinded on top of harsh sanctions on critical goods, backed down. But, the US did not threaten Russia in the same manner.

    An unnamed Russian delegate said the country stepped up to back and help pass the resolution because they felt “it is wrong when a big country tries to push around some very small countries, especially on an issue that is really important for the rest of the world".

    And they rant about other countries protecting their industries. Has to be about as low as anyone has ever gone in the history of the world.

    Milk formula industry lobbyist's wishes over the health of millions of babies. Trump administration in top gear.
    And to blackmail another country to get what the lobbyists want....disgusting.

    The U.S. really does have a backward, dumbed-down, and disconnected mindset [generally speaking] - less as individuals, but as a dangerous blind collective.

    Ecuador not only do not support Big Brother's kind recommendations but also harboring in their Embassy a man of name Julian Assange. That's enough for sanctions...

    Surely, "You're either with US, or against US in the fight against breastfeeding" is a good slogan, yes?

    Abbot Laboratories was one of the companies that produces infant formula for sale in the 3rd world. Abbot Laboratories also contributed to a part of $107 million to Trumps inauguration.

    ^You don't get a gram of AU for a spelling correction. It is considered pedantic.

    See your Kremlin Bot Agreement, Section 34, Subsection 12a: Arsehole Definitions. (Кремлевское соглашение о Bot, раздел 34, подраздел 12a. Определение артефактов)

    Most find this blindly acceptable....attempting to call it something it isn't.

    Ah, but you do get points taken off for displaying your lack of education.

    ^
    We all know that "points make prizes" and as such my Gold Medal tally may now be somewhat smaller, it is something I can live with without concern.

    But "lack of education", please clarify.

    If it's the Russian Translation then I will blame the online site. I will even name and shame them here, if it means a positive response and my Gold Medals continue to have new Golden friends, to spend happy times clinking together through the desperate times TD may face ahead.

    My Kremlin handlers spent more time with me on smuggling CW through western security systems. That seems to be still OK.

    The medals, so proudly displayed under my anonymous user name, will once again shine, like a beacon of light, in this sometimes dark mysterious world of TD.
