Only if they attach the explosives to the gas & oil CEOs backs. How people with sh*t for brains get positions of power, I'll never know.

My God! I couldn't believe what I was reading. I agree...only someone with sh*t for brains would think of doing this.

These Corrupt Corporate Big Oil Giants have to be stopped. Of course they don't give a damn about the indigenous people who are in danger. Of course they don't give a damn about polluting even more of the planet. A**HATS! I hope some of those indigenous people have a way to "disappear" whoever comes their way to destroy their land and their homes.

It never occurs to these corporations that they DON"T HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO WHATEVER THEY WANT IN THE NAME OF $MONEY$.
