The oil spill in pictures

The oil spill in pictures

"Of course it is the dishonest attempts to blame us for the oil spill that has prompted more of us to spot there is a problem. He denounces 'British Petroleum'. Yet no such firm exists since the merger of BP and Amoco nine years ago. Just a slip of the tongue after oil slip? Unlikely. He is going for cheap votes by blaming foreigners. Yet 39 per cent of BP shares are American-owned - compared to 40 per cent for the British. While other firms get bailouts, in the case of BP Obama seems determined to cause as much harm to the company as possible.Where are Obama's demands for compensation from the oil rig's owners Transocean or Halliburton who did the drilling? Oh yes, both are American companies.

I agree the "Blame" game is unfair. It is obvious to serious thinkers that he is trying to direct attention on BP but this is par for the course. My purpose in posting the pictures is to remind people that there is a real tragedy going on. It is a shame the BP shareholders, US and British should suffer but their loss is risk they acccepted when buying the shares; the losses to the people in America's gulf region are tragic and undeserved.
