When that failed, they turned to threats, according to diplomats and government officials who took part in the discussions. Ecuador, which had planned to introduce the measure, was the first to find itself in the cross hairs.

The Americans were blunt: If Ecuador refused to drop the resolution, Washington would unleash punishing trade measures and withdraw crucial military aid. The Ecuadorean government quickly acquiesced.
Defenders of freedom, which use the threat of trade sanctions against the terrifying spectre of breastfeeding, second only to cultural Marxist academics as a threat to the West presumably.

Man, **** nestle. They give away a month's worth of baby formula for free to moms immediately after childbirth and in that time, women stop producing breast milk. And then, they are forced to buy formula for babies. In poor countries, this probably also means mixing formula with unsanitary water and babies die of diarrhea in the millions.

The guillotine needs to be brought back for these mother****ers. No trial needed.

Just let the market decide mate. Nothing can go wrong because markets are pure and beautiful, as no business ever puts profit before doing the right thing, or ever behaves in a way which suggests they require regulating.

I love how when businesses behave like utter ****s it's never a result of a fault in the model of the market, but rather because government always causes the problem. The flip side of the "but that isn't real socialism" coin.

The only parallel is that the people claiming government isn't at fault, when it is, and those who bring up 'real socialism' is that these same people tend to not know simple definitions and what these ideologies mean.

No. It absolutely is a fault of the model of the market. The problem is the US government is enforcing the interest of private corporations. I just want those interests to rise or fall on their own merits.

If their formula really is gods gift to infants, then prove it without the world's largest military backing you up.

Tell that to all the car manufacturers, farmers, steel and coal workers that depend on the government intervention to maintain their jobs.....
