Personaly speaking, I believe the oil companies are a pretty much moraly retarded bunch. In the US , with the gulf spill, they got a serious wake up
call, and they destroyed lives and habitats in order to recieve that wake up call, but without wanting to sound crass, the damage they do to less
developed nations over long periods, far outweighs the human cost, and the ecological damage done to the gulf coastal areas.
The only reason they are getting attention now, is because they did what they do everywhere else, forgetting that they were in United States waters,
and not in some barely developed nations back yard.
The real stinger is that these companies cannot be punished adequately to thier crimes, due to thier control over oil stocks. It has become the case
where they have more power than governments to effect change in a nations financial operations, and that scenario is a nightmare for any democrat (and
I do not mean democrat as in the party, I mean democrat as in a person who believe in democracy, in the power of the people over the state).
