Take down HSBC

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - EUGENE R. DUNN Med­ford, New York

The UK-based HSBC is seek­ing to re­lease bil­lions of dol­lars of cap­i­tal tied up in the United States with­out up­set­ting the coun­try’s politi­cians and reg­u­la­tors. Nev­er­mind the politi­cians; af­ter the crimes against hu­man­ity that this bank helps fa­cil­i­tate with drug car­tels and ter­ror­ist or­ga­ni­za­tions, I’m up­set that it is still able to con­duct busi­ness in the United States.

With all the blood the bank has on its hands, per­haps even Sept. 11, 2001, blood, it’s out­ra­geous that the U.S. gov­ern­ment hasn’t run it out of the coun­try on a rail. In­stead of giv­ing them their bil­lions of dol­lars in cap­i­tal back, I say we just take it and put it to­ward build­ing Don­ald Trump’s pro­posed wall. That would shut down the drug car­tels that are poi­son­ing our youth and would be an in­stant na­tional se­cu­rity as­set against ter­ror­ists try­ing to in­fil­trate our bor­der.

As I see it, the more money we al­low this global crim­i­nal en­ter­prise to have, the more ar­ro­gant they be­come, think­ing that they’re too big to fail. In­stead of al­low­ing them to have ac­cess to cap­i­tal, we should be des­ig­nat­ing them a state spon­sor of ter­ror­ism. HSBC is a scourge to our so­ci­ety and the quicker it is ter­mi­nated, the sooner the crime rate, drug ad­dic­tion and ter­ror­ism will plum­met.
