Colombia has been fighting a civil war for over four decades; Mexico is in the middle of a drug war. People who can arm themselves, hire bodyguards, and purchase bullet-proof clothes and automoviles.
Not surprisingly, a Colombian entrepeneur has seen a great business opportunity, and has expanded his business to other countries in Latin America and Europe.
But The Guardian thinks it’s all because of Dick Cheney: Colombia tailor offers bespoke bullet-proof jackets for millionaires
After Dick Cheney accidentally shot a friend while hunting, Miguel Caballero’s protective jackets, blazers and raincoats are in big demand.
It didn’t have anything to do with the thousands of people killed in the drug wars, and the narcoterrorists, would it? Really?
I guess that must be why Harrods displays the garments next to the Berettas:
Harrods displays some Caballero wares near the Beretta concession in the hunting and outdoors section. The rest is in a section visited by appointment only.
For this precious bit of journalism, I nominate The Guardian for the AOTH Award.
And now for an oldie but goodie, Ten ways Cheney can kill. That’s more like it!
