    Nice try with your straw man argument. Since when do you see any oil executives out murdering, jailing, etc. people they wish to silence? Please let us know from whence you have drawn your point of view.

    That remark is not to say that there are no serious issues in the way corporations and central banks operate unethically and even criminally. That still is a matter of law, and whether regulators and the authorities choose to enforce it. As such you are clearly comparing apples and oranges. The behavior of those in the oil industry, and all large corporations currently, is necessarily muted in comparative terms because we still have some semblance of the rule of law, instead of the rule of a tyrant like Gaddafi.

    But the day is quickly arriving in the United States where people here have had their fill of the criminal activities of those in the executive suites of large corporations, investment banks and the central bank with regulatory authorities turning a blind eye to their transgressions.

    The following is an example many might find of interest:
