    Default Russia suspends US MEAT IMPORTS over "ractopamine"

    http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/02/1...n-on-u-s-meat/
    Washington sharply criticized Moscow Monday for banning imports of US meat, saying the Russians had ignored scientific proof that an additive in US animal feed is safe.


    Top US officials said that global food-safety experts had cleared the additive, ractopamine, as safe at levels used in the United States.
    But Russia, enforcing its own rules against any presence of ractopamine, on Monday banned all imports of beef, turkey, chicken, pork and other animals


    “The United States is very disappointed that Russia has taken action to suspend all imports of US meat, which is produced to the highest safety standards in the world,” said US Trade Representative Ron Kirk and US Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack in a joint statement.


    “Russia has disregarded the extensive and expert scientific studies conducted by the international food safety standards body, the Codex Alimentarius Commission,” they said.


    The commission “has repeatedly concluded that animal feed containing the additive ractopamine is completely safe for livestock and for humans that consume their meat.”


    They said Moscow had ignored repeated requests for talks on the issue “and instead has simply suspended US meat imports.”
    The United States exported $557.7 million worth of fresh meat, chilled or frozen, to Russia last year, according to US data.

    It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen
    to set brush fires in peoples minds! Revolution is Action upon Revelation!

    ...for protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment

    "the Codex Alimentarius Commission"

    In case you are unaware - The Codex is food regulation that is desired as global law, established, propagated and pushed by a consortium of Corporations;

    The World Trade Organization
    The United Nations
    The World Health Organization


    The Codex reminds me of a historical event(s);

    "Showers are right this way..."

    Oh no, I'm fully aware of what it is.

    Just had Warhammer 40K on the mind is all. Just a random comment that had nothing to do with my understanding of the article.

    For the Emperor.

    I'll show myself out now...

    So the Codex Allmentarius, which develops standards but has no power in and of itself to enforce said standards is bad....

    But the Russian government, which is using force to prohibit the sale of a product is good...

    yep sounds libertarian to me.

    These bastards really are trying to destroy us.

    Go Russia and every other nation rejecting this nonsense.

    Americans will, of course, simply sit back on their fat asses and allow this to continue.

    There is quite a list of banned chemicals and GMO items in the EU. The corporations have not been as successful in coersion of their Governments like that have in the US
