PetroChina Co. Ltd.’s (PTR-N110.321.171.07%)

$1.9-billion investment in the oil sands is raising alarms in
Washington, with the head of a congressionally-appointed China watchdog
saying the company is clearly a vehicle of Beijing’s Communist

Too bad.  If we were such good friends they wouldn’t be shaking us down for passports and copy the contents of or PDA’s and Laptops.

Mildly competitive… maybe a small bit head strong… sometimes has an opinion… and occasionally has a requirement to be right (currently averaging 99.9% of the time). But my high level of sensitivity and empathy makes up for any of my minor faults :-)
