And we should not forget Donald Rumsfeld who was Chairman of Gilead from
1997 to 2001 before becoming Defense Secretary. At that time, he purportedly
owned 5 to 25 million dollars of Gilead stock. Tamiflu was one of the big sellers

They masquerade as respectable business people but actually are despotic warlords holding a gun to our heads and saying your money or your life. Our governments are scrabbling around to come up with more and more ransom money, and all the focus in each country has to go into coming up with the ransom, not saying, we will not do business with these (corporate) war criminals.
