So, after all the previous attempts to cap off or control the gusher in the Gulf of Mexico BP finally thinks they have installed a cap which will work. Why after all this time are we the public supposed to believe this latest attempt is working?
Anyone with an IQ above moron knows that oil companies such as BP have engineers working on various contingency plans of stopping oil gushers, well before the well is dug. The Gulf of Mexico well explosion and subsequent free flowing crude oil from the severed pipe is no exception. Plans for containment in a similar scenario were surely studied and planned out long before the actual disaster happened.
This line of thinking would suggest that the powers involved knew ahead of time just how to stop the leak and simply let it go on for as long as it did because they wanted it to.
But what is to be gained from such a criminal act? Well, one has to examine the whole picture both from the stand point of what would be gained for BP and perhaps the Federal Government.
