    Remember when that oil rig leaked at least 4.9 million barrels of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico? Well it is happening again. New seepage locations have been detected as BP claims the original oil well has been completely sealed. Not only that, but the oil that was originally treated is resurfacing. The 1.9 million gallons of chemical dispersants used to treat the oil the first time around only sunk the oil, not removed it. Not to mention that these chemical dispersants are banned in 19 countries, including the UK.

    Several of the dispersants are water soluble, meaning they evaporate and come down as rain. Spreading the toxic dispersants hundreds of miles inland. One man who was tested 100 miles inland from the shores of Louisiana had the highest levels of toxic chemicals in his body when these tests were performed last year.

    These dispersants cause serious illness in the sense that it never goes away, you never get better. Once you are contaminated with these chemicals, you are forever sick until you die.

    This has been happening for a year. The Federal Government says that the seafood from the Gulf is safe to eat, despite all samples tested for oil and chemicals, 100% of samples have shown unsafe levels of both the oil and chemicals.

    This is killing wild life and destroying numerous industries. BP is not compensating people the 20 billion they are suppose to. They are refusing to pay for clean up workers medical bills. The mainstream American media is not reporting on this at all, nothing. Their silence is evidence of their corruption and submission to the interests of the government and BP.

    It is truly unfathomable that the higher ups in the mainstream media, the federal government, and BP executives are unaware of these realities. If there were ever a reason for the American masses to rise up against our oppressors, this is it. It is us or them. They don't seem to care when we lose our lives, why should we care when they lose theirs?

    BP isn't an American company. There's nothing America can do.

    Think of this as poetic justice for the Bhopal incident.

    We can ban them from operating in our country. And declare war on England for allowing them to exist.

    Please. Americans are bitches. That's why their governments are in such a sorry state.

    Your pathetic excuse for a military couldn't even subdue Iraqi/Afghan peasants. What hope do you have against Britain?

    And as long as BP puts enough money into the American system and bribes the right people, nobody is going to stop them.

    You're Australian [or something], so I'll forgive your stupidity.

    Our government's fucked because our country is simply too big for the federal government to govern effectively even if it wanted to. Which, unfortunately, it doesn't, because it's far too profitable for the legislature to be in it for themselves.

    We have nukes. Britain is a tiny island. NS

    They're none too fond of america either. I have no personal problems with america, I think you guys are great. Just gonna say though, if america did go apeshit and attack britain, we'd cozy up with russia and then russia and china would probably use the attack on us as an excuse to go to war with you and as I said, nuclear war would destroy the world, so why don't we all put our ICBM's down and have ourselves some bromance?

    can't build a new one without tearing down the old one, you know?
    and humanity would survive because that's our thing, it's what we do

    Now, I would continue this fascinating discussion, but at the moment I've got the attention span of a gold fish and half life 2 is looking more and more attractive by the second, plus "asian gang bang" isn't going to watch it's self.

    Have you heard of the idea of "soft-killing" the American populace? Sounds suspiciously like it.

    No it isn't. There is no collective plot to "soft-kill" anyone, it is simple greed and the belief that regulation is bad. Nothing more, nothing less.

    It's a foreign company. They would've needed the government's permission to start and keep drilling. So your argument is invalid.

    I get it, I get it, you're an edgy faggot who never grew out of your rebellious phase and believe that REVOLUTION is the only way to get anything done. Let me guess, you believe yourself to be 'worldly,' an 'intellectual,' a sort of different person from the rest of the world. That feeling you feel? It's being a pretentious hipster faggot who has a huge ego.

    You'd probably run home crying after getting shot with one of those riot beanbag guns like the little pussy you are.

    I live off the Gulf of Mexico, and I haven't seen any oil on my beaches (I live two blocks away from the ocean). This may be true further to the west, but the east coast of Florida is relatively clean.

    actually, his argument is completely valid precisely because of that.
    the government is run by people who don't care about governing or regulation as long as the corporations give them money
