i don't recall to much of an uproar when the Belgians bought Budweiser and that was an OLD American company don't see us too mad at Belgium people
buy other peoples companys all the time there just not usually as power-full as what bp and exon could be come
Exxon doesn't "need" anyones permission to do this and BP's stock price makes BP ripe to be bought out. And just think of those 270 leases off the
coast of Libya they'd get in the deal. I wonder what the Libyans think about having a US oil giant sitting right on the door step. Just like old
times I guess.
maybe its part of a greater plan to give some of those oil wells to the Israelis after the supposed coming war with iran or our back up plan to them
closing the straights of Hormuz either way theirs gonna be some pissed off Libyans soon

mention British municipalities invested in BP through common shares and bonds.
