The mysterious island of oil
Joaquín Rivery Tur
• APPROACHING the end of the age of black gold, U.S. citizens imagine a river of light crude flowing toward their refineries. Their southern neighbors are angry at the prospect of the gringos stealing oil via bribery from their deep-water blocks in the Gulf of Mexico, just like they striped the country of half of its territory using violence and money.
The two dilemmas are currently creating a scandal in Mexico and there is growing demand for an investigation into the haze surrounding the disappearance of the island of Bermeja, which was present for centuries on maps as part of the Yucatan but was erased from them in 1977.

So instead of some more plausible theories like the earth's plates moving or seawater levels rising, we are going to assume the USA nuked the island for some silly reason ? Why don't we just ask the Mexican government? Surely they know what happened to their island, especially if it's as important to them as you say.
