There Should Be a New Rule

If any petroleum company in the world demonstrates that it cannot safely drill off-shore, and a spill, explosion or other incident occurs, then there should be a global agreement that denies that company permission to drill offshore, anywhere again.
Tonight, the news is covering BP's month-long failure to stop crude oil from gushing out and polluting Gulf waters. Enough of this nonsense.
BP needs to get this mess fixed, then pull up stakes and get the fuck out of North America for good.
What's happening in the Gulf will have repercussions similar to any terrorist attack- poisoning waters, killing sea life and denying hard working, decent people of their livelihoods for years to come.
Fining them millions won't phase them--they have billions in their coffers, with more to come.
Let them use their assets to drill on land--elsewhere.
BP is not a North American company and they have more than overstayed their welcome.
We need international laws against this type of gross negligence.

i think we should have tanker ships move in, suck up the oil-slicked water, and then dump it all in the english channel. let's see how tony hayward likes that shit in his water.

extremely well put, i never thought of it that way.
YES! What has happened IS equal to a terrorist attack on our waters.
YES! They need to get the FUCK OUT since not only can they not prevent the problem, they can't even FIX IT!

BP should also pay for the equipment needed by the people living on the coast to keep that crap away from their beaches and homes. Why the hell is the US government even being asked to pay for that kind of assistance? The US needs to give BP a shopping list and tell them to fill it and deliver it immediately.

And why the hell is Obama insisting on taking all the responsibility for everything that went bad and is going bad with the oil spill deal?

Why should the gulf die and BP get to linger ? Divvy up every pound euro and piaster they have and give it to the people who now have useless fishing boats, motels and hotels and no health care or retirement planning. Yeah right. The time has never been more ripe for these corporations errrr I mean people to step and and take their lashes. They really deserve it after this.
