Nexen is a Canadian company. The prospective buyer is a Chinese company. The United States has no say in this. Nexen's shareholders do.

Do you think this is the first time the Chinese bought a Canadian oil company? Besides, CNOOC is ready to pay a 61% premium for the stock :)

What I am saying is that people are going to make money on the sale. And it will not be all Chinese. People like you and I own Nexen stock. I used to work for a Canadian oil company that was also bought by the Chinese. Happens all the time. So what?

CNOOC wants to also invest in a Texas based renewable energy company. They have the money, American companies dont.

Americans (and some Canadians apparently) need to get used to the fact that America does not rule the world. The rest of the world does not dance to their tune.

Done deal. "OTTAWA -- Prime Minister Stephen Harper gave China's authoritarian rulers an early Christmas present Friday, giving them a bigger piece of Alberta's oil patch.

As a result, a company controlled by the communist government of China will be allowed to acquire Calgary oil and gas producer Nexen for $15 billion."
