But guess what Mr. Everything's Cool told them: "Thanks, but no thanks! We'll hold BP accountable for this!" And guess what the brain trust at BP told them: "Thanks, little chap, but we've got things under control!"
So meanwhile, as God knows how many millions of gallons of oil are gushing into the water, ships that can process 5 million gallons of seawater per day, removing 20,000 tons of sludge at the same time, sit idle in the Netherlands.
Now mind you: this offer didn't come yesterday! This offer came 3 days after the explosion! All this time, those ships could have been processing the water and keeping the spill to a controllable mass!
Sure, there are some legal concerns with the Jones Act- but I'm pretty sure the Commander in Chief could find at least a temporary solution to allow these foreign ships to operate in American waters. And cheap-ass BP didn't even ASK the price- the just assumed they'd be charged out the ass for it!
God DAMN this shit just pisses me off more and more every day!!!!
