I really don't understand.
Could somebody explain why such a big deal,about a few barrels of oil in a gigantic sea?
I mean the volume of oil is 0.00000000000000000000000000000001% of the total sea volume.
How will it effect me?
I mean bigger NATURAL disasters have happened but all we hear is about some oil.
This must have happened before.
It will simply disperse.
We don't need to do anything.
People talk about animals being killed by oil.So what?
We kill a billion animals every day for food?
We cook ,we roast,we slice and dice them...we cook crabs alive.
We behead chickens and goats and ducks and cows and bulls.
What is the big deal?
People talk about environmental damage.
Will mountains collapse?
Will cliffs fall. Will ships sink?
It will disperse.So stop all this nonsense for the sake of a few sunbathers and tourists.
We should concentrate our attention on the War on Terror which is the most important war as it effects everyone of us , instead of letting these liberals and namby pamby environmentalists divert us.

Oil seeps out of the ocean bed all the time in the Gulf, and off the California coast, and many other places in the world. See some oils slicks in the Gulf years before the 'spill':
Also, there is no abrasion in the well casing, as there is no sand, rock, gravel coming up the pipe. If there is, where is it?? I didn't see any settling around the wellhead, and I didn't hear about the recovered oil containing any sand or rocks. This whole event was conspired so Obama could introduce his carbon trading tax, and Goldman Sachs could create some more trillions of dollars with its derivatives scams.
