    How about BP just hands over their assets to the US Government, as a small token of atonement for attacking the entire Gulf? OK, I’m not entirely serious – but I do think BP is playing a dangerous game by being defiant and obnoxious. Even the GOP is angry about what BP has done, and that’s such a rarity I can’t recall the last time it happened.

    This entire toxic scenario is frightening……
    Did You Know?
    BP engineers alerted federal regulators at the Minerals Management Service that they were having difficulty controlling the Macondo well (Deepwater Horizon) six weeks before the disaster, according to e- mails released by the Energy and Commerce Committee.

    “I don’t think this would have happened on Exxon’s watch,” Tom Bower, author of “The Squeeze: Oil, Money and Greed in the 21st Century,” said in a June 11 Bloomberg Television interview. “They’d be much more careful and much more conscious of the need to supervise subcontractors.”

    WELL excuse me your sainted Exxon……. and Chevron and ConocoPhillips.

    Let’s just take a look at a few of your past misdemeanours, and then we can consider again – if the moratorium on deepwater drilling should be lifted, and place it all firmly back into your nice clean hands!
