Oh, good lord! How do you get "troop occupation," out of the military stepping in to clean up the spill?

I posted this thread a while ago and basically it sank, big time.
www.abovetopsecret.com...
However what i find interesting is the location and timeframe?
Oh and also the fact that the supposed "buoy" was not detected on radar?
Anyone?
Is this common?

Also look at this link cnn
edition.cnn.com...

"Come on........What the heck is this fear mongering with not a source in your post.

First of all, why would a SWAT team go to an oil rig in international waters?

Did you not hear the news?www.google.co.uk... t-teams-to-american-off.html&rct=j&q=Obama+sending+SWAT+to+oilrigs&ei=5M7ZS9vUH4r-0gTCkJBV&usg=AFQjCNEON9oU_TBk2IfbmRK0AdLEOD0TEg
And also i just stumbled over this.
Military Develops Multi-Purpose 'Green' Decontaminants for Terrorist Attack Sites
www.sciencedaily.com...

Off topic?
Read the article, could this possibly be manipulated to maybe clean up the spill?

I am located in Gulf Shores / Biloxi right now. We were going to the beach today, for one last walk before this spill hits. However, hearing that the area will be sprayed, we are thinking otherwise.

I will be on the beach as soon as possible with my camera.

Here is a link concerning the SWAT dispatches to oil rigs.

www.cbsnews.com...

There are likely more, but this is the first I found from a source other than a blog.

Thanks for the link. I was starting to wonder if i heard wrong


Something is up here i think. SWAT teams to other rigs?
Could the explosion have been deliberate?

Thanks for the link. Very interesting, since the people I know who work on rigs, have to have passports to do so.

I guess it will be interesting to hear their stories of being investigated when they get home, unless they are warned not to speak about it.

No worries


It does seem as if there is more information that may be known concerning the cause of the explosion and there is an attempt to prevent it from happening elsewhere. There is so much that we are kept in the dark about; we probably wouldn't leave the house if we knew about all the 'close calls'.

I wasn't sure what exactly a SWAT team is called in for so I looked it up on good old Wikipedia. It states:




SWAT duties include:
* Hostage rescue.
* Crime suppression.
* Riot control.
* Perimeter security against snipers for visiting dignitaries.
* Providing superior assault firepower in certain situations, e.g. barricaded suspects.
* Rescuing officers and citizens captured or endangered by gunfire.
* Countering terrorist operations in cities.
* Resolving high-risk situations with a minimum loss of life, injury, or property damage.
* Resolving situations involving barricaded subjects (specifically covered by a Hostage Barricade Team).
* Stabilizing situations involving high-risk suicidal subjects.
* Providing assistance on drug raids, arrest warrants, and search warrants.
* Providing additional security at special events.
* Stabilizing dangerous situations dealing with violent criminals (such as rapists, serial killers or gangs).
* Armed patrols


(source: en.wikipedia.org...)

I'm not sure I'd want to guess which one of these reasons they're being assigned to other rigs. I hope for the best and for the safety of everyone out there right now!

Propaganda.

--Never let a disaster go to waste.--

Remember that line?

They're using this incident for political advances.

Best to keep an eye on this, and another on whatever may go under most people's radar. . .
