What is amazing to me, is the US govt and military are, has been, and will be able to mobilize and move thousands of troops and equipment anywhere on
the planet within 24 hours, and yet this oil has been gushing for over a MONTH and they are still sitting with their thumbs up their asses while the
entire coastline gets poisoned for decades.
I bet if we wanted to invade Iran or North Korea the response would be swift and effective. We can put machines and men in orbit but we can't stop a
leaking pipe on the ocean floor?
Granted the leak is under a mile of water, but guess what, if stopping a leak that deep is near impossible, perhaps we should admit that we are not
masters of the planet, and we do not yet have the technology to safely drill for oil at that depth, since if something goes wrong we are helpless to
do anything about it, and all of the gulf coast fishermen, oyster beds, shrimp beds, fisheries, marshes, bird habitats, and tourism will have to
suffer for decades because of the incompetent arrogance and inaction of a big oil corporation and the govt which is sucking at their teats.
