May be Obama the know it all person can find an engineering solution for this problem. I am certain his extensive experience as community organizer in inner city Chicago made him a super engineer, ( as well as an super MD, a super economist, a super financial wiz, a super scientist, etc...)... (super extreme sarcasm).
We need maybe a marine engineer or someone who knows a lot about drilling to tell us if it is possible AT ALL for this to have happened due to human tampering.
The number one suspect is the Middle East oil groups. They have much to lose if the US can successfully drill for oil on our own shores.
Someone already posted a conspiracy saying it was a North Korean torpedo.
I suppose it is conceivable that there may have been tampering with the rig, or extreme carelessness, but how the hell would that account for a valve that is a mile below the surface not working properly? I thought the valve was supposed to be practically fail safe.
Sounds too much like a Winston Churchill speech. He only needs to add, "We will never surrender."
16 years of Bush and Clinton with thousands of offshore wells. Not one blow out.
We have someone now who bows to the Saudi King named Hussein. A Saudi king who makes probably 3/4 of a trillion a year selling us oil. Who could make a trillion if our energy industry is harmed.
Cameron’s blowout valve supposedly fails on the sea bed? I am not buying it.
There should be plenty of those experts all over the news 24/7, but there aren’t any at all.
It’s almost like someone doesn’t want people talking about this.
I wonder why...
There are already some 500 oil wells in the Caribbean, somehow I find it hard to believe the the Middle east oil groups would want to risk the bad publicity on ONE rig.
Here comes $7.00/gal gasoline
Exactly. That is why I would like to know for sure if it was just an accident... and put to rest the thoughts of possible marine terrorism.
FR has many experts. I’m hoping someone can elaborate and explain.
Do you know who manufactured the valve?
I’m willing to bet the Blow Out Preventer was made in China. We have already lost planes, a bridge, and other things to steel marked as a higher quality than it actually is.
I am not expert but they have redundancy back ups on everything. No blow outs on thousands of wells in 16 years of Bush and Clinton.
Major hurricanes have blown through the gulf - big ones and pipes were scattered, some platforms damaged, a real mess but the well heads all held up.
I smell a rat.
Mark Levin had a person who was on the scene when the blowout happened. It was a once in a hundred years freak gas blow out, not sabotage or terrorism or intentional. Eleven men were killed in the blowout. The story should beabout them, not Barry’s use to try and take control of the oiul industry, yet. The sonofabitch in the Oval Office is sending an army of lawyers to the scene. He intends for it to escalate as far as he can manage it, to mkae THE crisis Rahm deadfish Emanuel wants to exploit and Maxine Waters has already spilled the beans is coming ... to quote the commie bitch threatening the oil industry execs: ‘This liberal will be all about socializing, er, taking over your companies.’
this would be like Micheal Chrichton's State of fear in real life.
Did the person on the scene say there was absolutely no possibility of tampering?
What about human error? Or was it totally just caused by the pressure?
