If they own the equipment, why doesn't H&P cap the well, disassemble, and cut up the rigs while they still can?

oil companies have been ripping off third world countries for 40 years. Personally, I would like to see more of this kind of reaction from the people in those countries.

That comment was stupid, I strongly suggest you find a variety of news sources
and leave FOX news.

@Tman; your liberalism is showing, and assumptions are the mother of all... I'm sure you know how the rest of the saying goes.

If they're not paying, the rigs need to be removed. If you leave property on someone else's land in another country I'm not sure that you could expect it to remain untouched.

Especially by the Venezuelan Government.

When dealing with a despot like Chavez, should anything surprise you? I can't believe that H&P didn't have any clue that this could happen. Unfortunately, it's his sand box and if you want to play there, you have to play by his rules. This man is truly evil and adds another facet to the axis of evil.

Your buddy Dubya could have resolved this situation years ago but he was an inept idiot and failed (don't forget he bankrupted FOUR oil companies all by his lonesome.)

FAUX 'news' is very good at what they do: dumb down everything to 3rd grade level and that's why so many knuckledraggers love it.

Obama will apologize for the wells being "abandoned" and getting in the way of Venezuela's progress - then offer them as a gift. What a worthless, spineless "leader" figure you morons voted into office...

Hear, Hear!

@karl; liberalism is a dying breed, jump ship now. How does it feel standing in a circular firing squad? BTW, your assumption of my party affiliation is pathetic. Just because I oppose "0" doesn't mean I was for "W". I am neither republican nor democrat, both parties are working to destroy my country, therefore, I loath them both.
