- British Petroleum ought not to be 'Beyond
Prosecution' and yet that appears to be exactly what the 'BP' stands for.
The political failure to look back twenty years ago into the Exxon-Valdez
oil spill that enabled the massive failures throughout the Deepwater Horizon
- That failure-to-prosecute then is what is keeping criminal
prosecutions in the Gulf off-the-table now. This failure to act, or even
to appear to act now, makes it impossible to do what the entirely criminal
establishment normally always does. Namely, to demand that we 'not play
the blame game and look only to the future'. But this time it is clear
to everyone, even to those behind this crime that we cannot look forward
yet because the criminality has only just begun to unfold.
- To understand the balance that has been shattered by
Deep Water Horizon you only need to grasp the fact of how the wave actions
in the oceans of the world have always completed their function. The waves
rise and fall in answer to the winds and currents that exist around the
planet. This 'state' is not something can ever remain fixed because this
is the way that the oceans of the world have been breathing since the planet
became habitable by humans. The events set in motion by the detonation
of Deep Water Horizon has begun a process that could begin to end the viability
of the oceans along with all the life that has depended upon their stability
for millions of years. (1)
- This devastating failures surrounding Deep Water Horizon
are now entering the second month; with both the government and the oil
companies having completely wasted all the time between the blowout and
today. The resulting damage to the Gulf, to the Gulf-Stream and to the
food chain, as well as to the aquatic life amid the oceans and along all
the coastlines which this crime will directly affect, as the true scale
of this obscenity finally begins to become known. Once this corruption
makes its way into the Gulf Stream that encircles the earth through the
oceans of the world-only then will the true scale of this colossal crime
- With the above in-mind; this criminal-disaster is now
just waiting for the beginning of the Hurricane Season. Once that begins
the oil-drenched waters of the Gulf of Mexico will create massive new problems
from acid rain to raining oil along with the watery walls of oil which
will inundate the coastal regions and will finish off whatever might still
remain today of those areas that were never truly protected by the government
or the oil giants from the ravages of this crime, that will continue to
punish us in every aspect of our neglect for the welfare of nature or for
the lives of the people of this planet.
- If we were serious about this, in any respect, then the
public would have immediately demanded the head of the EPA chief and everyone
else associated with the obviously criminally-liable procedures that were
used to allow this crime to happen in the first place. Instead the government
has attempted to protect BP, Halliburton and the others involved in this
aspect of the continuing-murder of our way-of-life.
- The financial cost alone of this crime will begin at
over a trillion dollars and no one can know how much this outrage will
end up costing once everything is factored into to the price of the lawlessness
which this will cost us all in the end. This crime is too important to
be left to politicians and lobbyists to solve. The people who were in charge
when the blowout occurred should have been fired within twenty-four hours
of the explosions: Yet they are still there, still making the half-hearted
failed gestures that have only prolonged a real response and enabled so
much more permanent damage to go unchallenged.
- There are literally hundreds of other Deep Water Horizons
out there just waiting to add more failures to this nightmare, and yet
no one in authority has made any move to limit any potential repeat of
this criminal act. Here is the Atlantis Oil & Gas Production Platform
also located in the Gulf of Mexico; it is the deepest moored oil and gas
facility in the world. Will "Atlantis" repeat what became of
its namesake, and if so at what cost to the world?
- The oil giants are quite literally standing astride the
commercial world as officially UNTOUCHABLE outlaws that are holding our
entire lives hostage to their profits and their unquenchably callous greed.
It is way past time that the public began to force this government to act
to defend not just the public but the planet from these Robber-Barons of
the New Millennium.
- If we fail to demand an open and complete criminal-prosecution
of these outlaws that have been legally and monetarily responsible for
all the damage they have willfully caused then we shall become no longer
victims but we will become a major part of the problem itself: Co-conspirators
in the ongoing murder of the planet and the impending destruction of the
human race. If you disagree with the nature of that charge then factor
in what we have allowed so far.
- We have allowed these same lawless giants to cut and
to burn the rainforests of the world; those rainforest were the lungs of
the planets' air-filtration system. We have allowed the 'energy companies'
to remove the tops of our mountains and to pollute the fresh water streams
below them with no concern at all for what this damage has done to
the ecosystems on the land. We have allowed the creation and mining of
the oil in the tar sands in Canada which is creating yet another toxic
stew whose repercussions will be felt for decades if not centuries to come.
And these events are only some of what was done in the name of the 'energy
policy' that Cheney set in motion in his first massively-secret-act as
VP under the dictator George Bush Jr. We have been lied to over and over
again, and those lies have taken us to the very edge of the abyss that
we must now face.
- Thirty-nine percent of BP's oil is sold to this country;
which is part of the power that we are being blackmailed with to allow
them to continue to exist. People have been reluctant to act because of
their own self-interest and in many cases their own livelihood is literally
at stake. Yet the one thing that we have NEVER DONE is to hold those in
charge responsible for any of the crimes committed against us since 911.
We can foresee some of what will happen if we demand that action be taken-what
we do not know is just how final the outcome will be, if we do not DEMAND
that everyone associated with these crimes against the world be held to
- Why not take the plunge and at least insure that this
can never happen again; The world itself is actually at risk here, and
all our continued failures are finally surfacing in this malevolent crime
against everything that makes life possible anywhere on earth! If you're
not part of the solution then you're part of the problem or as George Carlin
so beautifully put it:
- "The owners of this country know the truth, it's
called the American Dream cause you have to be asleep to believe it."
