Exxon given the nod to mount BP takeover

Oil giant Exxon has been given clearance by Washington to mount a £100bn bid for BP as the embattled British company undertakes a high-stakes
gamble to cap the Gulf of Mexico spill.
OK, I've had a good search through ATS and was surprised I didn't find this on here. If it is and I missed it, please disregard this thread and
continue to post on the previous one.
It seems to me to be a little too much of a coincidence that through the horrendous Gulf of Mexico leak, BP finds itself in a position to be taken
over by a rival oil giant, Exxon, with the full support of Washington and Obama.
If Exxon seized BP, it would place an energy behemoth worth in excess of £250bn fully in American hands - at a time when the world is
struggling to find new sources of oil.
This just compounds my suspicions and I would presume those of many of the members here on ATS that this was far from being an accident and far more
likely to be industrial/political sabotage.
Please add any views you may have on this subject.
