USA – Home of the extortion racket. Who says Al Capone is dead?

Well, I’m nothing less than astounded by the accusations made against Standard Chartered.  Here they are accused of the most heinous crimes of breaking sanctions against Iran to the tune of $250bn.  Am I the only one that thinks that this is a extortion racket?

Time after time we are seeing this from US governments and their agencies.  They come along with their exaggerated claims and no one calls them on it?  Megaupload anyone?  To hear the FBI and the content industry, Kim Dotcom has robbed them so severely that he could have driven them out of business.  Yet he did exactly what was asked of him when presented with a valid DMCA notice.  What do we have there, government piracy on a massive scale.
