    Not only is BP not British as such but the rig was being leased out to Transocean, an American company, who where operating it. Another US company was responsible for the deep sea stuff that involves coupling the well. They must have some sort of responsibility also.

    This is my design for capping the leak.

    I call it the KD-2 Underwater Blitz Bomba

    Apparently the UK is being villified in the US, becase of this, even though BP is owned virtually 50/50 by the US, but it's not being reported over here properly. But the US forgets that OUR oil disasters were caused by THEM..

    Obama - the World saviour, can't do wrong, is suddenly making massive mistakes in who to blame. The faulty blow off valve, manufactured in America, the rig, not owned by BP, rented from a US company, all this from the WORLD's largest environment polluter? Get your own in order, before saying BRITISH Petroleum, and admit it's owned 40/39 to America, foo!

    Apparently Obama is very unpopular at home so he's trying to score Brownie points by being strong and decisive. The problem with that is it's making him unpopular abroad.

    Its not all BP's fault

    So, I hope that the way the Americans are treating BP will come back on them and bite there bums.

    The Americans always fail in there duty of care when ever they create or have a major problems.

    Do you as an American feel its been handled fairly or do you feel its been handled better than your own disasters?

    The Yanks don't like to admit that anything they have ever done is wrong. They won't let little things like facts stand in the way of pointing the finger of blame ar another country.

    Remember the movie "Enigma" about the decoding machine invented by the Brits during WW2. They claimed they invented it in the movie :LOL:

    Obama will end up with egg on his face in a minute.

    Historical point their. The Enigma machine was invented by the Germans. The first complete one was captured by British forces whilst sinking a German U Boat. The code was eventually broken by the team at Bletchley Park, including Alan Turing using the very first electronic programmable computer.
