So we should stop pretending and let companies pay "commissions" or bribes? Are you saying the anti-bribery laws already on the books in the EU and elsewhere are just a "feel good" exercise and should be ignored when the opportunity to sell a few dozen fighter jets arises? Once on this slippery slope, where does it end?
Hijack alert. So it's Cain's fault for killing Abel?
Why bother with the laws in the first place? Frankly, if U.S. companies are distorting the market by paying bribes, I would cheer prosecution efforts to stop this because of the distortion on the market place: the best product won't ever win.
