You have it backwards. In your story, the US company is merely a vendor, a salesperson and an owner of production methods that already existed. In the case of oil, the US is the discoverer, the producer and the seller. Mitres have been around alot longer than the United States. Oil production has not. Huge difference, not that you'd know the difference.
You don't get it, do you Paco?

If you do business in a foreign sovereign nation, you just might be rolling the dice. Hmmmm.

Lets restate that for all of those unfamiliar with your writing:

Spook, like Paco, hates Americans who don't think like him.

Nobody said there was no risk. But you automatically think our government shouldn't do everything it can to protect and if possible, regain the property of its citizens. Why do you think there are still sanctions on Cuba? It's not about Soviet missiles in 2013, moron.
Civilized nations don't steal like that. When Canada started a state run oil industry, it built it from scratch along with purchasing infrastructure from ARCO, Fina and BP and competed with private enterprise.

One of the articles cited as its source for accusations of US involvement in the coup, a known Jew hater who later was part of the Birther accusations.

The Guardian is one of the UK's more despicable publications, your political equivalents make up most of its commenting base.

May I repeat myself, the source for the allegations of US involvement is a Jew hating Birther.

Padded with power here they come
International loan sharks backed by the guns
Of market hungry military profiteers
Whose word is a swamp and whose brow is smeared
With the blood of the poor

Who rob life of its quality
Who render rage a necessity
By turning countries into labour camps
Modern slavers in drag as champions of freedom

Sinister cynical instrument
Who makes the gun into a sacrament --
The only response to the deification
Of tyranny by so-called "developed" nations'
Idolatry of ideology

North South East West
Kill the best and buy the rest
It's just spend a buck to make a buck
You don't really give a flying fuck
About the people in misery

IMF dirty MF
Takes away everything it can get
Always making certain that there's one thing left
Keep them on the hook with insupportable debt

See the paid-off local bottom feeders
Passing themselves off as leaders
Kiss the ladies shake hands with the fellows
Open for business like a cheap bordello

And they call it democracy
And they call it democracy
And they call it democracy
And they call it democracy

See the loaded eyes of the children too
Trying to make the best of it the way kids do
One day you're going to rise from your habitual feast
To find yourself staring down the throat of the beast
They call the revolution

IMF dirty MF
Takes away everything it can get
Always making certain that there's one thing left
Keep them on the hook with insupportable debt

Defend Hugo all you want, but you are defending the nastiness of a leader who ruined his nation's economy, buddied up with Iran, and used Anti-Semitic allegations against his opponents in the elections, in addition to bribery and fraud.

Don't know where you got that "quote" Karl, but I didn't write it.

Anyway, if I was "defending" Chavez it was for his policies related to nationalization of the oil industry and the redistribution of its profits towards health care and education.

Such awful priorities to espouse, I know.

No I hate every communist, socialist, democrat, that doesn't think like me no matter their location on this planet. I especially hate communists and socialists that are US citizens. Why you may ask, because communists, socialists, democrats are just thieves and lazy ones at that
I don't bother asking why. Its pretty evident that the reason is because you're simply an ignoramus.

I can edit quotes here-Karl
It was being redistributed into his own pocket.

I don't like the leaders of Brazil, as they are socialists with a state owned oil company, but they are not as nasty as Chavez.

What you are doing is Akin to defending Hitler in that he supported Keynesian economics, road building and the VW Beetle.

I was referring to you, tool. I know who Bruce Cockburn is, right down to the correct pronunciation of his name.
I much prefer, "If I Had a Rocket Launcher." Perhaps we'll modify it and use it in the troubles that are coming.

Your side likes using the term "racist" a lot.

You don't like it when the left's historical and apparently ongoing relationship with socialist and neo-communist leaders is talked about.

That rhetorical trick about a failed socialist state, being "not really socialist" impresses me.

Now Paco, there you go again. I know you know who Bruce Cockburn is, and how to pronounce his name.

You do realize though that "Rocket Launcher" is the direct opposite of a call to arms, don't you?

Like I said before Paco, if this Nation's oil resources could be nationalized and the profits and benefits redirected to support the welfare of all of its citizens rather than a few, I would fully support that.

I don't give a fck what you call it. Alaskans seem to enjoy profiting off of their reserves.
