Why the United States still can't get BP to do what's necessary If Obama asserts no legal authority over BP, he can't cleanup the oil giant's cleanup BY ROBERT REICH

Make It Into American Petroleum

Pres. Obama needs to forget his conflicts over the mistreatment of his grandfather by the Brits and recognize that as president he must serve and protect the people of the U.S. even though he might be criticized, and bite the bullet and seize BP's assets and arrest its management under terrorism laws and get it over with. So what if Britain fumes, if they don't like it let's go to war, and after we win we can divest them of more assets to pay for that as well as the horrendous longterm damage their terrorist corp. did to us. The alternative of treating them as a legit corp who's our friend and can be trusted to hand us all its assets is dumber than check-into-cash.

U.S. Says No, but Nuclear Option for Spill Gains Support

My reply:

Yes, a small nuke to the side of the well should push rocks into it and seal it off, and the heat only would make it work better by getting a molten rock flow going. So why not? If there were ever a use for nukes, this is it- a pure gain, ending the horrific flow of oil and environmental devastation, and since the sea floor is already a mile down, the nuke shouldn't harm anybody or anything. Is Obama so bewitched with his Nobel that he will risk ruining the U.S. coastline for some political purity about nasty nukes? Stay tuned, jeesh.
