Big Oil Corrupts Governments; Courts Protect Big Oil; Will Chevron Escape Paying Ecuador?Submitted by Woodman101 on Sat, 12/21/2013 - 10:29
This Chevron / Ecuador case is getting worse.
Even Amy Goodman brings up a good point, why didn't the Ecuadorian government do more to clean up the Amazon? After all, Texaco was a subcontractor to the Ecuadorian state ran oil company.
Chevron then bought Texaco and the liabilities.
One would think Chevron is liable, but the fact remains, Texaco was a subcontractor to the state.
This is a good example of where Big Oil corrupts governments and gets what it wants. Then they use the courts to their advantage every step of the way.
Of course this is not justice.
But Big Oil has gone around the globe bribing officials and exploiting the planet, the people, the cultures, and I'm starting to sound a lot like a liberal.
And then the International Bar Trespassers protect them all.
I don't care if it is Chevron, Texaco, BP, or ExxonMobil. They all do it. They all lack a shred of integrity. They all lack a shred of integrity like the judges and lawyers that protect it all. They all lack a shred of integrity like the government officials that took the bribes and sold out their nations sovereignty and damaged the ecosystem, for what $3.71 / per gallon of gas?
Ecuador is no different than the United States. Our officials have been bribed and have sold out our natural resources and our wealth of this nation. Look at the BP oil spill for example. Look at the Exxon Valdez. Look how Exxon and the Courts have handled that class action lawsuit since what, 1989?
They can play the blame game all they want. It's all of them. They are all corrupt. Maybe when the world realizes this, the good thing is these people have to sleep at night.
