11. For the umpteenth time: It doesn't fucking work that way.

If you want another country's oil, you do it the way Rex Tillerson did it at ExxonMobil, the way all oil companies do it: You negotiate a complex, lengthy production sharing contract, conduct geoscientific tests, and then proceed with drilling operations. If you are successful, the proceeds from the production are split between the producing nation and the exploration company. You don't just "take" another nation's oil, any more so than taking a country's population into slavery.

And yes, I speak from experience.
