The warships of Costa Rica could be a result of the current problems in Panama. I received the following alert for US citizens residing in Costa Rica
from the Warden at the US Embassy in San Jose, Costa Rica:
The U.S. Embassy in San Jose alerts U.S. citizens about large-scale
protests in Changuinola, Bocas del Toro Province of Panama. According
to information we have received, protesters have blocked the roads in
and out of Changuinola, and the areas of Punta Torre, Finca 3, Finca 8,
Finca 15 and Finca 30 are also blocked off. These protests may last for
several days. U.S. citizens in Bocas del Toro are urged to exercise
heightened security awareness and to avoid the Changuinola area. U.S.
citizens planning to cross into Panama from Costa Rica, using the border
at Sixaola, are strongly urged to alter their route or postpone their
travel until the protests have ended.
That said, I completely agree with the observation that BP's priorities are not the
same as that of the American people. They are a BUSINESS in the business of making money, plane and simple. They have run the cost benefit analysis
decided that the relief well scheme will benefit them the most in the long run. Part of the scheme is to bury the as much of the problem as possible.
Hence, the use of environmentally unsound dispersant, media control etc. Out of sight they hope means out of mind and they will eventually recoup
their public image and stock prices will rebound just as ExxonMobil's has. BP is selling their oil the same today as they were a day before this
holocaust began due to the way that oil is distributed in this country. BP will not suffer in the long term, they know that.
