    This kind of misses the point.


    bp was told they could not drill in the shallow water, they must drill in the deep water...


    the government and the enviornmentalists play part of the reason for this mess... unintended consequences...


    And if they didn't drill there, there are tons of other oil co's willing to do so, so Im not sure of the point.,
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us

    The point is that they CHOSE to drill there in hopes of making money, not because they were forced to do so. It was a purely voluntary decision. Businesses weigh risks all the time and pass up opportunities because the risks are too great.

    They wouldn't make money. We all know how Libbos just hate it when companies make money.

    What do they have to hide that they want to block the media from seeing?
    Maybe they had insufficient life preservers and fire extinguishers.
