Actually the leak was caused by a north korean sub. Since south korea never signed the armastice agreement after the war they are still at war and north korea is legally allowed to attack them any time. That well was a south korean owned well.
The only way to fix it is to use a small 8 kiloton tactical nuke we have in our arsenal. That would melt the rock around the leak and seal it. It's a no win situation. If we nuke it then every offshore drilling country gets to clamor to the UN about it's right to posses nuclear weapons. If we don't fix it then it will leak literally billions of gallons out destroy the entire gulf and possibly catch fire and burn down half of florida and Lousiana and large portions of texas. Adding the the most stable portions of mexico to the mix makes it even worse.
Nothing will be said. The amount of leakage and damage will be under reported. The fixes won't work and america will be forced to stop trying to keep nuclear weapons in only a few hands. Sometimes 1950's come back and bite you in the azz.
