Was the Gulf Oil Rig Explosion a Deliberate Attack on America?
Dakota Voice ^ | Saturday, May 1, 2010 | Gina Miller

Posted on 05/01/2010 6:05:18 AM PDT by WXRGina

Torpedoes would make sense for the results we see. The platform exploded, despite redundant safety features; plus, something apparently also happened on the Gulf floor at the opening of the well to prevent engineers from being able to stop the flow of oil from it. Two topedoes launched from a submarine could cause those things to happen.

Oil rigs are perfectly capable of exploding on their own without help from a submarine. Just sayin’.

Torpedoes at a depth of 5000 feet to damage the blowout preventer?

I still want to know why Obama said that we are sending SWAT teams to oil rigs in the Gulf (not just the one that blew up, but apparently all of them)? What are they supposed to be doing there?

What are the chances of a Sub making it into the Gulf? Drilling that deep has its risks although BP is as good as it gets. We will never know.

Given the Earth Day observance at the same time, I suspected some greenie involvement as an effort to stop all offshore drilling.

My first thought was Chavez with the help of Iran, however, my grandfather was in the oil business 50 years ago and I have lots of home movies of well fires from blow outs. It happens. A lot of his workers were also killed over the years and these were very experienced guys.

On a side note. My grandparents lived in Daytona Beach during WWII. I remember hearing a lot of stories about the German U-Boats sinking our supply ships off the coast. They would come out of the gulf, around the southern tip of FL and head north to join the convoys. They had black outs every night to prevent the silhouette of the ship from being seen off shore by the Germans, however, they sank them on a regular basis. I heard lots of stories of the oil washing ashore with bodies, parts of bodies, personal effects and dead sea life from the depth charges our side used. The beaches recovered quickly after the war was over with no long term effects.

My feelings exactly. My first thoughts were somethings really screwy about this whole thing.
The torpedo thing sounds a bit far fetched though. Some sort of sabotage does not.

Transocean is a top-shelf company, with over 600 vessels, the largest private navy in the world. Safety is job #1 unconditionally, and everyone takes it seriously, as they know their lives depend on doing the job right.

After the Choesun incident, I wouldn’t doubt the NoKo provocateurs were involved.

And what’s with the SWAT teams?

My understanding is that if a sub was moving in the Gulf, we’d know about it.

I am hardly qualified to form an opinion. I have ZERO knowledge about drilling. I do agree the questions should be asked.

I am bothered by the way Nappy repeatedly referred to it as the “BP Spill” during her presser the other day and by the lack of curiousity shown by the media.

More likely Iran or Elf. Just put a bomb on the pipe and lit is slide to the bottom then Time delay to disaster. Cuba, Chavez, OPEC, could be all of them.

The Obama Administration is out to destroy free market capitalism and America as America was founded.

If destroying this oil rig and hampering increasing oil drilling advances that goal, it is not to be discounted.

As a Jewess in the US, I believe the gulf oil platform was sunk by a North Korean Stealth Torpedo, the 2nd test of the same type that they used to take out the South Korean Navy ship last month.

Welcome to FR. Do you know what IB4TZ means??

This thread makes as much sense as the eye-witnesses who gave accounts in New Orleans swearing that they saw the levees being dynamited.

Other than your job as a radio disk jockey, what else in your professional or educational background qualifies you to be able to even suggest this was a torpedo attack? Where did you get your forensic evidence?? How did you conduct your BDA (Battle Damage Assessment)??

Please explain to me using your vast store of complex military strageries, exactly how North Korea managed to get a mini-sub, or any size sub for that matter, all the way from NoKo to the Gulf of Mexico completely undeteected??

This is sheer fantasy from someone who is pimping their blog, and you’re not the first one to put this nonsense forward, so don’t feel too badly. But we have enough real problems in the world right now without making things like this up out of whole cloth.

Go back to Saddam...and Kuwait...He set 100's of wells on fire and our guys put them out. And wells were also a primary target during the Iraq war.

So, blowing up wells is a part of alqueda life..and we know from Ft. Dix that they are very capable of infiltrating along with their hating hearts.

To Osama, mass destruction (structures) has been his MO...deaths a minor matter. It's his method of attack....so I wouldn't rest until we find out some truth.

And Obama...he's as blind to this as he was to Ft. Hood.

IMHO, this incident has a good chance of being sabotage.

Unless it’s a manufactured “crisis” to prod enactment of new laws, carried out by a third party that sympathizes with the effort (plausable deniability).

I don’t think they monitor the oceans and seas like they do the skies. Before we got into WWII my father was searching for U-boats along the southern coasts of North America.

Obviously BP has become too cavalier in it's safety focus and we need to nationalize them for the good of our eco-system and national security.

First, you claim you are opening up offshore drilling.

Next, you arrange an accident.

And then you have another party.

Yeah.....And Gary Anderson's U-2 was shot down by Russians @ 70,000 feet MSL. Refineries of all types for fuels or just petrochemicals of various types have been popping off like Jiffy-Pop this past year.

Sometimes the simplest solution of incompetence just doesn't wash. That's the problem with history, it needs to distance itself an entire generation before the real story shows itself.

I'm not saying one way or the other, but the "it is what it is" phrase is way overused.

Occam's Razor never dealt with human creativity of purpose. It's more of a natural law kinda problem solver.

I’m NOT saying it was torpedoes, but I’m not NOT saying it, either...
