Get Iran's help. There is no reason to not accept their help. I don't care what the rednecks that i live around say about it. In the end, we all win. This whole "no win" situation crap isn't going to cut it when my great grandkids won't even get the chance to eat gulf shrimp in the summer. You know the ones....the big 20ct ones.
When the world is at stake, national allegiance means squat.

Although I expect the US to not say anything about this and just snub them.
I also expect them to NOT take over operations and just allow this situation to continue.
This will be nail in the coffin for the Dems if they don't fix it soon.

I also doubt that Iran has any unique expertise to bring to the table with regards to this problem and the depths involved.

The US should have accepted Iran's help when it was first offered. The US should accept SOMEBODY'S help, instead of just continuing to put their faith in BP. Not sure why, at the very least, the US Army Corps of Engineers is not on the case with regards to this leak.
BP's Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles has said if a planned attempt to plug the well with heavy mud fails, BP might not be able to stop the leak until a relief well is ready in early August.
Are you still gonna turn down Iran help even if it might save months of spillage, which has already spilled 20 million gallons in the gulf in the last month, predicted to increase to 7 million gallons per day???

This has already been discussed here: www.abovetopsecret.com...
On another note, It is a shame that we aren't taking all of the help that we can get, especially when nobody can logically deny that we need all of the help that we can get.
