    And I thought it was just the Imperialist American companies that were exploiting the people of the world !!

    As you can see, this link is rather old, but I do find it so interesting today, did back then too! ;) There are links, but how many are still to be found? :dunno: I do know the definition of American Jacksonians should still be there:

    Russia is very much in this scandal.

    since 1990 almost 1/3 of the oil-contracts where signed with russians. Mjor russian policians are in this such like 2nd president of the Parliament "Wladimir Schirinowski" and head of the communistic Party Mr. Gennadi Sjuganow...


    The foreign minister Lawrow said today that almost all documents from which this UN-Investigation was made are falsified and not true...


    P.S: also 133 turkish firms are mentioned in this document.
