    BP exec acknowledges public frustration over spill - Yahoo! News

    "Everyone is very, very frustrated about why we haven't been able to bring this well to stop flowing so far," said Doug Suttles, chief operating officer of BP PLC, but he insisted the oil giant has the necessary resources to stop the growing spill.

    BULL SHIT :pissed: :pissed:

    I watched a representative from National Geographic on the news the other day. She said that there are only 4 small sub/vessels that can go that deep into the ocean...We don't own one?!?!?!..It was France, Japan, China, and somebody else.

    Now, they are actually asking for help and ideas from the general public..It's friggin crazy...They have no idea what they're doing.

    When Kevin Costner shows up and has to take control of the situation they're just grasping at straws...We're screwed.

    WASHINGTON – BP readied yet another attempt to slow the oil gushing into the Gulf on Tuesday as a government report alleged that drilling regulators have been so close to the industry they've been accepting gifts from oil and gas companies and even negotiating to go work for them.

    Like we didnt already know that.

    I'm glad to hear your not suprised that government regulators are corrupt Yote. Oh and PRC yeah we most definatly have a DSRV and it could go that deep. Why it can't be used I have no idea. Maybe it couldn't do anything once it got down there.

    Yes, the containment area worked, but the pipeline still broke, spilling oil. What if that had happened outside of a containment area?

    I'm watching the news, they had an expert who had a look at the plan on the clean up that BP gave to the Government. It stated that they were going to protect the otters, walrus, and seals, etc...

    Those animals don't exist in the gulf of mexico.

    The bastards did a copy and paste job on the plan.

    I wonder how British Petroleum would feel if we piped all that spilled oil and dumped it on the shores of England?
    Wonder how long it would take for em to be put out of bussiness?

    I'm watching MSNBC right now, they're saying that since the "Top Kill" failed it'll be August before they have the relief wells in place...
