    Re: US bans offshore drilling as Deepwater Horizon slick hits land

    Unfortunantly, we don't own the whole of the Gulf of Mexico and no matter what we do, Cuba can hire who they want to drill their waters. But let's not pretend that if the US momentarily puts the breaks on offshore drilling we're gonna have a bunch chinese roughnecks cruising Bourbon Street at shift change.

    That link clearly states that the foriegners are working for Cuba, not us. And they will be working for them no matter what we do. Why? Perhaps because the US doesn't wanna work with Cuba?

    Cuba's gotta do what Cuba's gotta do.

    I strongly support off-shore drilling, but I think this is a good idea. If we are going to do it, we should do it as safely as possible.
    I agree. By the way, Shep Smith has taken to calling it the BP oil disaster rather than the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster. I think the BP name might stick.

    It was built in 2001. Hardly old at all.

    I can't believe it! First, they told us that it couldn't happen. Then they told us it wouldn't happen. And now it's happening …

    Nope.

    The article is confusing, by the way. One paragraph says exploration has been put on hold, while the next says drilling permits have been put on hold. It would be ridiculous to hold up exploration because of this.
