Goodyear Tire: Will they learn about war crimes?

At Nuremburg and Ludwigsburg, Germans contractors were convicted of illegally supporting war crimes.

Could the same thing happen to the Goodyear Tire employees if they go back to work?

* * *

Sure. How is anyone going to know that a given tire does or doesn't go to a war crime zone? They have no idea.

It will be interesting to see how the Goodyear Tire Company strike is resolved.

___ Will CEOs walk out, fearing indicement by the war crimes proscutor?

___ How many Goodyear tires will be introduced into evidence to show the company has allegedly been complicit in war crimes?

___ Will defense counsel say, "If the tire doesn't fit, you can't convict?"
