PRESIDENT OBAMA: "Earlier today, DHS Secretary Napolitano announced that this incident is of national significance and the Department of Interior has announced that they will be sending SWAT teams to the Gulf to inspect all platforms and rigs. And I have ordered the Secretaries of Interior and Homeland Security as well as Administrator Lisa Jackson of the Environmental Protection Agency to visit the site on Friday to ensure that BP and the entire U.S. government is doing everything possible, not just to respond to this incident, but also to determine its cause."

SWAT teams? Why would he send SWAT teams? My guess is they will find `serious problems` with our off shore oil fields and the government will step in to control all drilling with say , a new oil field czar or something.

Only reason to send SWATS would be to start looking for ILLEGALS crossing the Gulf of MEXICO on rafts and those drug traffickers using submarines to smuggle.

I just saw this on PP and ... and ...


If ever there was a time to use WTF it's now.

Who in the hell is in command? The only thing that this confirms is an off the wall RSS feed that I got earlier today that I pretty much just blew off as Socha Faal BS.

For those who wonder ... Here's the quoted RSS Feed.

MODS please don't ding me on this lengthy quote as I'm just grabbing it from the RSS feed that I got...

US Orders Blackout Over North Korean Torpedoing Of Gulf Of Mexico Oil Rig


A grim report circulating in the Kremlin today written by Russia’s Northern Fleet is reporting that the United States has ordered a complete media blackout over North Korea’s torpedoing of the giant Deepwater Horizon oil platform owned by the World’s largest offshore drilling contractor Transocean that was built and financed by South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd., that has caused great loss of life, untold billions in economic damage to the South Korean economy, and an environmental catastrophe to the United States.
Most important to understand about this latest attack by North Korea against its South Korean enemy is that under the existing “laws of war” it was a permissible action as they remain in a state of war against each other due to South Korea’s refusal to sign the 1953 Armistice ending the Korean War.
...
To the attack itself, these reports continue, the North Korean “cargo vessel” Dai Hong Dan believed to be staffed by 17th Sniper Corps “suicide” troops left Cuba’s Empresa Terminales Mambisas de La Habana (Port of Havana) on April 18th whereupon it “severely deviated” from its intended course for Venezuela’s Puerto Cabello bringing it to within 209 kilometers (130 miles) of the Deepwater Horizon oil platform which was located 80 kilometers (50 miles) off the coast of the US State of Louisiana where it launched an SSC Sang-o Class Mini Submarine (Yugo class) estimated to have an operational range of 321 kilometers (200 miles).
On the night of April 20th the North Korean Mini Submarine manned by these “suicidal” 17th Sniper Corps soldiers attacked the Deepwater Horizon with what are believed to be 2 incendiary torpedoes causing a massive explosion and resulting in 11 workers on this giant oil rig being killed outright. Barely 48 hours later, on April 22nd , this North Korean Mini Submarine committed its final atrocity by exploding itself directly beneath the Deepwater Horizon causing this $1 Billion oil rig to sink beneath the seas and marking 2010’s celebration of Earth Day with one of the largest environmental catastrophes our World has ever seen.
To the reason for North Korea attacking the Deepwater Horizon, these reports say, was to present US President Obama with an “impossible dilemma” prior to the opening of the United Nations Review Conference of the Parties to the Treat on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) set to begin May 3rd in New York.
This “impossible dilemma” facing Obama is indeed real as the decision he is faced with is either to allow the continuation of this massive oil leak catastrophe to continue for months, or immediately stop it by the only known and proven means possible, the detonation of a thermonuclear device.
To whatever decision Obama makes it remains a fact that with each passing hour this environmental catastrophe grows worse. And even though Obama has ordered military SWAT teams to protect other oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico from any further attack, and further ordered that all drilling in the Gulf of Mexico be immediately stopped, this massive oil spill has already reached the shores of America and with high waves and more bad weather forecast the likelihood of it being stopped from destroying thousands of miles of US coastland and wildlife appears unstoppable.
And not just to the environmental catastrophe that is unfolding the only devastation to be wrecked upon the United States and South Korea by this North Korean attack as the economic liabilities associated with this disaster are estimated by these Russian reports to be between $500 Billion to $1.5 Trillion, and which only a declaration of this disaster being an “act of war” would free some the World’s largest corporations from bankruptcy.
Important to note too in all of these events was that this was the second attack by North Korea on its South Korean enemy, and US ally, in a month as we had reported on in our March 28th report titled “Obama Orders ‘Immediate Stand-down’ After Deadly North Korean Attack” and which to date neither the Americans or South Korea have retaliated for and giving one senior North Korean party leader the courage to openly state that the North Korean military took “gratifying revenge” on South Korea.
And for those believing that things couldn’t get worse, they couldn’t be more mistaken as new reports coming from Japanese military sources are stating that North Korea is preparing for new launches of its 1,300 kilometer (807 miles) intermediate range ballistic “Rodong” missile which Russian Space Forces experts state is able to “deploy and detonate” an atomic electromagnetic pulse (EMP) device, and which if detonated high in the atmosphere could effectively destroy the American economy for years, if not decades, to come.

 


They take some liberties in this article, IMO, but as MythBusters would claim... "Plausible" Given that South Korean ship that sank recently.

Little Kim Jong Il is a nutjob and might conspire with many other vultures awaiting the US to be plunged into a civil war so they can come ashore and take the spoils while we 'fight amongst ourselves'.

I'm just sayin. Not to creep anyone out but this whole bucket of crawdads stinks to high heaven.

Again... SWAT Teams? ... WTF!

Why would North Korea do that? It makes no #ing sense at all:

Oil is a fungible commodity, meaning it's pretty much the same if it goes to europe, america, asia, or wherever. It's all exchangeable the exact same way because it's basically the same thing, no matter what flag flys on the ship carrying it into your bay.

This oil spill, though a terrible disaster, is not world-ending. It's not going to kill off all life in the gulf, it wont change the price of oil around the world, it wont stop America from having its stable oil flow (I don't even think that oil well was FOR americans, anyways; not that it matters, as oil is a fungible commodity.)

How is north korea going to possible torpedo an oil rig, anyways? You think they have subs that can cross the world, drive up to an oil rig in the gulf that doesn't even belong to America, then inextricably launch a torpedo into it -- and nobody noticed any of this happening?

Why would America cover it up? That would make a great pretext to retaliate on NK, which means more spending on defense, and new foreign soil to build big expensive military bases in (which just means more welfare for the defense industry. I hear haliburton has a special 2 for one military base deal going on)


That conspiracy just makes no sense.

You didn't read it at all did you? It's obvious that you aren't considering how the North Korean gov't would see things from their position.

They absolutely consider shooting their nose off to spite their face... or 'saving face' as the case may be...

They've proven through previous actions that they have no problem sacrificing anything to make their point.

Especially if it means stabbing at US somehow and making any kind of hit points.

Now, with that in mind, re-read that RSS feed and it can make more sense. I never said that it made perfect sense.

TPTB never make any sense to regular people (?). Use that as your guide. TRY to think like them temporarily. Chaos, Gov't embarrassment is whats in it for them.

Many in South Korea believe the North Koreans sunk the South Korean ship.

Read some SK news sites. NK is just hell bent on causing issues...

WHY? Because they can... Ever have kids?

NK behaves like immature kid in a world of states with varying maturity.

I am stating that it's totally plausible; NOT RATIONAL; but plausible based on gov't reactions.

Sending SWAT Teams to Oil Rigs?!?!?

If ever there's a reason to say "WTF?"... It's now.

I looked all over the web today to find this post. It was linked by this article.

"Obama, Chinese leader Hu escalate war threats over North Korea"
www.eutimes.net...

All of the links worked to the source material except the copy and paste over Obama's ordered blackout. I see that the blackout is working. Keep the copy alive
