Of course, you have no problem with European countries providing $20 billion in illegal subsidies to Boeing's riva Airbus.


After finding last year that <span style='font-size: 17pt'>Europe’s Airbus has, over decades, received more than $20 billion worth of cut-rate government loans and other subsidies</span> to develop new aircraft, international trade regulators Thursday ruled in a parallel case that Boeing received prohibited subsidies, too: about $2.7 billion worth.

The World Trade Organization “has vindicated the view the United States has taken for the last 20 years: that the <span style='font-size: 17pt'>subsidies the Europeans give to Airbus dwarf anything that the U.S. government does for Boeing</span>,” U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk told reporters in Washington on Thursday.

I have to stick up for Snoopy here ... it is a basic tenet of the far left that all nations should act in their best interests, except the USA which should never act in it's own best interests.

When viewed through the prisms of illogic and hate, as most leftists limit their POV to, Snoopy's thoughts make sense.
