BP DISASTER: Gruesome Underwater Spill Footage: 'It's A Nightmare’ Says Cousteau During Dive (WATCH)

This post has turned into a round-up with 7 important clips and several links.  I spent a few hours on this one, so check it out.  Make sure you see the BP revenge photo.

NOTE:  BP PHOTO is at the bottom of this page.

Video:  Nuke the Oil Spill?

Russian experts suggest a radical yet effective solution from Soviet history that has been utilized either 5 or 9 times, depending upon your Kremlin contacts. 

We have some impressive history buffs among our readers, so I'm curious if any of you knew about tactical nuclear weapons having been used in this way before?

Having dispatched a team of nuclear experts to the Gulf, Obama is said to have the plan under careful consideration.


From Nuke The Leak

 But it turns out there's a groundswell of support in the blogosphere for a radical solution to stop the spill: Drop a big ol' nuclear bomb on the mutha.

Sound nuts? That's what I thought, too, until I learned that the Russians have already done this a bunch of times—and that the US already has a bunch of bomb-savvy scientists brainstorming solutions in the Gulf. Even weirder, though, is the support that some people are extending to the un-ironically-titled "nuclear option."

Let's start with the Russians. According to Vladimir Lagovsky of Komsomolskaya Pravda (once a Soviet communist paper), "In the USSR, a few such leaks were plugged with the help of the peaceful atom." Five leaks, all underground, were plugged thusly, the paper says—starting with a 1966 natural gas fissure in Uzbekistan. That one was snuffed using a 30-megaton blast six kilometers deep—about one and a half times the size of the Hiroshima bomb. "The idea of the method is simple," Lagovsky writes. "An underground explosion pushes the rock, compresses it, and actually squeezes the channel well shut."

Staff members at an agency that oversees offshore drilling accepted tickets to sports events, lunches and other gifts from oil and gas companies and used government computers to view pornography, according to an Interior Department report alleging a culture of cronyism between regulators and the industry.

Right now it is the Queens ocean, and all the Queens men are busier trying to save their bonuses rather than worrying about our "disobedient" shores. Our politicians are to busy posturing themselves to see how they can spin this to their advantage, BOTH PARTIES. Do any of you realize there is a 75 million dollar cap on what has to be paid by a company after a oil spill? BP is already posturing to get all litigation moved to Houston instead of where they are f@cking everything up, gee, I wonder why. Gotta love those old pesky campaign contributions...

I bet Gobie could fix it all tomorrow though, with no cost to the Goobermint, the taxpayer, or all thew Queens men who can't put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

Gotta respect those volunteers though. Gobie will probably make fun of them though...

MANILA (Reuters) – Senator Benigno Aquino, set to become the Philippines' next president, said Monday he is not ready to quit smoking yet because it could affect his decision making.

Barry's decision making skills sucks to begin with so why is he still smoking. If he were to stop smoking maybe he would be able to clear his head and do a better job. How's that for hopey changey?

Yes, I could. This is how...


I would have my civilian army swim down to the the leak and plug that damn leak once and for all.

It would be a glorious day of hopey changey.

That is about stupid Gobie, who made you the thought police? what would you like to ban next, alcohol, festive shirts, because they might encourage drinking or smoking. That is a lot from a man who worships a siph riddled derelict who could not stay away from the prostitutes, or a liberal commie atheist community organizer from Chicago for that matter.

Are you really worried about your cousins lungs? Because I know how you "royals" love to screw one another over for money...

Looks like we will be doing the cleanup despite what BRITISH petroleum said, according to the POTUS's comments tonight, no word from BP. I guess the POTUS just found out about the dollar cap. Just think what it will cost us if it starts washing up on Aztlan's beaches. At least it will not be washing up on British beaches...

Hold onto your wallets boys and girls, and God save the Queen for this generous gift. By the way, you all are supposed to still be believing that BP will pay all costs.

Who is paying the volunteers?

"All legitimate costs

All legitimate costs

All legitimate costs

WTF...Ahhhh, so this is what government healthcare will be like.

As the quantity of dispersant that BP has sprayed on the spill surpassed 800,000 gallons last weekend, experts say the secret formulas, combined with the sparse water-quality data released by U.S. EPA, make an independent assessment of the dispersant strategy next to impossible.

Some scientists are calling for all dispersant use to be halted until the ingredients and effects are better understood.

"gomp...i've been following the $75 million cap issue...it looks like congress can change it retroactively..."

Of course they can... But then it is a election year, isn't it? Bankster and oil contributions will abound for both parties. Kasich from Lehman Brothers is running for Governor in my State, oh joy, oh joy, The herds are uniting to protect the status quo...

Follow the money. BP has stated publicly they will pay all legitimate costs, seeks change of venue to Houston, and has many fine lawyers on payroll.

Lawyers swear a oath to the BAR, where is that located?

They who Own The Law, Own the Banks. They Who Own The Law and Banks Own the Corporations. They Who Own The Law and Banks and Corporations Own the Media. They Who Own The Law and Banks and Corporations and Media Own the Governments. They Who Own The Law and Banks and Corporations and Media and Governments Own the World.

It is a oldie but a goodie.
