US accused of ’modern piracy’ over mask confiscation

The US has been accused of redirecting 200,000 Germany-bound masks for its own use, in a move dubbed as ’modern piracy’. The local government in Berlin said the shipment of masks made by 3M was ’confiscated’ in Bangkok. The FFP2 masks were ordered by Berlin’s police force. Andreas Geisel, Berlin’s interior minister, said the masks were presumably diverted to the US.

I’m all for American companies taking care of American citizens first, but if there was payment and an agreement to provide these masks and we diverted them after they were halfway across the world then we are in the wrong. And for what? A measly 200k masks?
