Lets Be Stupid and hang ourselves (U.S.) to death over sanctions…

Below is an e-mail and it is from a Russian organization a very large Russian organization. This just could be the largest Dell customer in Russia. No I will not tell who it is, but I will tell you that this is happening all over Russia and the Russians are pulling away from the west and use eastern services from now on. I also will tell you that Preston Parker (of Dell | Global Trade Compliance – Trade Compliance Officer) knows who it is, and the Russian organization is very upset. The letter below is an example of a company like Dell Computers who has a paid contract for service and Dell is paid very well and in very large sums of money to deliver these services…

This is just one of many organizations getting these type of e-mails and they are just one of many who will alter their future to a better direction and safety net…

But! They (Dell) have to or they easily drop the care part when a maligned government, like the one in the U.S., tells them to stop supplying the services that are already paid for to Russia. This is how people who follow the rules and pay for expensive services are treated, by the U.S….

Just ask Preston Parker of Dell, I am sure that he has been very busy pissing off many Russian’s!

What I want to know is this the correct way to do business or is this business the western way? I also want to know, “How does a faltering company like Dell expect to survive when they hurt their business partners?”

This e-mail was sent to me and they allowed me to make sure it got out into the internet world. I just had to pull their names from certain spots…

When I see things like this e-mail above, I want to make it clear that no one should pay for services from an American company and if you do, get your money back. Do not pay for their services, do not pay for their equipment and do not pay for their ability to sanction you. Move all details, equipment and services to the east…

I know as per my own experience, India, China and many others are better able to give the service needed and they will stand by it…

Bottom line: The short term irritation of sanctions will turn to long term changes in policy and those short term gains by the U.S. will bear fruit against her in the long term. I see how sanctions have strengthened Iran and caused the U.S. to loose long term support forever…

Time for Russia to pull the plug and then China, by then the U.S.G. will have another trillion or so debt under her belt and be ready to go belly up…

P.S. – I am getting some feedback that Dell is trying to backpedal and trying to cover up what they are doing as per the e-mail above. “Sorry Charlie!” As we say…
