No nukes! That would merely exacerbate the problem, But I do like your thinking.
How about a sub with non nuke torpedo?
Oh no, now I'm offering solutions....a dangerous thing.

what's worse is BP's lack of complete financial accountability. They're trying to go the Exxon-valdez way of only paying for half of the total damage. The American people don't wanna pay for a careless company's mistake!
that greeny, cleany sourcey of energy stuff sounds pretty good about now, huh?

I have a personal contact very very high in the management of one of the two companies involved... there is no suspected terrorism or anything else of that nature,,, its an accident most likely caused by underestimation the amount of pressure that came out of the well.
That being said, this is much much worse than the current reports are telling you. This will most likely bring down BP and TransOceanic... They are truly scared to death that they can not stop this well from leaking and the flow from the well head is increasing every day.
It may take a few years before the world wide impact of this disaster is truly felt.. right now it seems like someone else's problem, but I can promise you this.... this will affect every single person on this planet before its over with.
