FredT, I was going to reply to you with a sane answer, but its obvious that you are bigotted and will forever be biased. I refuse to discuss this or any other Airbus/EU related issue with you again. Oh, and 97% tariff certainly is higher than 6%.

The whole point of this was that the EU is using thier levearage to push products on the Thai's. The fact that they are still pushing this after the tsunami makes it worse. But really now pre or post tsunami its clearly extorsion and clearly paint Airbus and the EU is a whole new light in regards to business practices. So despite the fact that the governments of the EU swear they have divested themselves of AIRBUS, its too hard to turn thier backs on the biggest jobs program the world has seen.
