I have no idea but to take property without "compendasted" is just wrong. There has been several lawsuits file by American Indian tribes and many have been "compendasted". In Northern, Maine, where my roots are, the Micmacs sued and were "compendasted"!<quoted text>
Iran had every right to nationalize BP as long as the latter were properly and lawfully compendasted. I don't know that they were, do you? Did the US and the British and Dutch orchestrate a coup in Saudi Arabia when that country nationalized all of its oil industry?
The people for Eniwetok took their case to the U.N. and we restored their Islands.
It is okay to kick diplomats out of your country but to hold them hostage is not.
