And who do you think funds the terrorists here in the US?
I'm not surprised by big oil doing all they can to make them the most powerful in the world.

ONLY funding ? i.e. did they stop supplying weapons, as they traditionally did, err pardon me: were suspected to have done ?

They had better justify themselves in a court of law. Is there a court that can't be bought?

This does not surprise me the river is so polluted from Shell's poor attention in operations. We need to tell the BC government kick these bastards out of our Sacred Waters, no pipelines, invest now in green safe alternative energy.

Shell-they just don't quit. do they? It's just one unethical decision after another.

Now that there is concrete evidence coming to light, perhaps Shell will be brought to justice, and maybe there will be justice for Ken Saro Wiwa.

Without suggesting that ANY oil company is comprised of a bunch of 'sweethearts', I have read and heard so many horror stories about Shell Oil, that I refuse to puchase their gasoline. I stop at the insinuation of murder, due to a alck of proof, but, NOTHING would surprise me.

Aside from the environmental destruction, which is evil enough, the lack of moral values with oil companies, this is reason enough, to push for cleaner energy.

Discussions behind closed doors, never surprises me about 'who is bed partners with whom". Follow the money they make the way to the top?
