@mikea105 - Was that Ford, or GM, or the ITT Corp? That story has changed much over the years with no legit primary source.

Having your own country shafted by corporations and banks is nothing new, and can be quite profitable. Over 200 years ago, when the US bought the Louisiana Purchase from Napoleon, we didn't have enough gold. We had to finance the transaction, which was done partly by British bankers who provided the gold for Napoleon to buy muskets, cannon and powder to use against British soldiers and sailors.

During WWII, Ford Motor Company had a factory in Germany that made tanks for the Nazis. Understandably, the US Army Air Force bombed the factory. After the war, Ford sued the U.S. government for bombing their factory and got $30 million.

I love the blank look Dilbert is giving us in panel 2:
"Do any of you believe what I'm hearing?"

I've wondered before but now I'm sure. Scott is definitely writing about the company I used to work for....

@R3sistance Actually a double fault on my serve; it was Tina who wrote the manual for the North Elbonians. Close enough for government work, I say.
