This is in fact correct ( it IS an IMAGINARY CONFLICT, created by the media)There is no bashing or sentiment in the US that labels the " British" as incompetent due to BP's disaster.
Most Americans know BP and know that the policies of multinational corps do NOT represnet the citizens of any given country.
The media seems to be folliwing an agenda here by manufacturing dissent.
Keep eyes on this one.
What goes around comes around. One of the greatest bailouts in history came in 1953, when the Eisenhower administration authorized a CIA-backed coup in Iran. The Anglo-Iranian Oil Company, owned by the British government, had been expropriated and nationalized in 1951 by unanimous vote of Iran’s parliament.
The ’53 coup evicted prime minister Mohammed Mossadeq and installed Shah Reza Pahlevi, the creature of the West’s oil companies , with full tyrannical powers. The AIOC got back 40 per cent of its old concession and became an internationally owned consortium, renamed… British Petroleum.

I just wonder if the attacks will continue if a US company suddenly found themselves at the centre of an oil spill?

It's all misplaced outrage... the outrage should be because of the devastation caused in terms of loss of life, environmental and individual livelihood loss - not this crap.

I personally hope BP folds and the people of Florida, Louisiana, Texas and anywhere else affected carves up her cash and assets.
It could start something.....The end of the Oil, Coal and Gas companies as we know it.
