i still think the subject of discussion on this thread should be what type of barrier they should deploy instead of the dome.

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.
You have a vivid imagination.

This is comedy! Love it!

I would love to see any countries subs get even 200mls into the Gulf. The Gulf is laced with sonar listening devices.

Most people don't know that NK & SK are still in a 'cease fire'. A long 'cease fire'!

The well was owned by BP-PLC, bought from -'Swiss-based' Transocean: One of the largest oil drilling companies in the world!
It operated the 'Deepwater Horizon rig' that blew up on the 20th. Those were Transocean employees that died, not BP employees!
