That's just it, Jakes51, this is getting rather ridiculous, the fact that this mess is not cleaned up shows both contempt for America, via BP PLC,
and inadequacy on Obama's experience.
This is one of those times where people need to be handled fast and correctly.
There is no option to allow BP PLC off the hook with the stalling tactics and minimal effort.
If our allies, this being the U.K., are not held accountable, through the corporations who do business off of our shores, this event will be as
effective as blood in the water, in regards to the International Community, with the United Nations, and all the countries who hate us, a long list,
will begin seeing America as weak under Obama, and who know what they will do.
When looking at any event, especially on the World Stage, we must remember our country is a prime target, and everyone is watching closely how we
And for those who want to nuke the oil well, that is not even a good idea, because it is first international waters, second an ecological nightmare,
and will be seen as an act of war on many levels by not only Mexico but Cuba and Castro.
We have laws about nuclear devices being used for a reason.

Too little, too late, these idiots in this corporation are not even trying in the least.
I have zero compassion for them whatsoever and they had better do what is right.
I saw your post about the caisson and I'm not suggesting a 5,000 feet high caisson.
I actually had not specified a height but the idea of the caisson is a good one.
Sink the caisson, pump out the sea water, through a filtration system, and put oil well workers in pressurized suits in there to fix the problem
