    Nor am i in favor of the Oil companies. I am probably more angry with them than most because of the state of the corruption and pollution in Nigeria.

    I have learned to control my anger and have realistic expectation. I have also come to learn that we Americans (majority by the way) are really indifferent to the needs and aspirations of other countries. A loss of judgment by the Oil companies might mean increase in gas prices...thus more Americans will care more about that than fighting for the livelihood of the Ecuadorians.

    I wish we would all do more...instead of just talk about it. We can join hands as thousands and support the folks in Ecuador and let our govt know we are serious about Justice. Thats all i am saying.
