Sigh, if your argument is that it is American hate to be angry that Americans are being shafted by their oversight agencies, then okay I suppose that can be an argument.
Quit trying to paint me immature because of my position.
The Deep Water Horizon incident is hardly your only problem. How about the oil spill by Canadian corporation Enbridge? They just didn't care about securing their pipelines properly and fouled up an entire lake. Then you had that giant garbage flood in that southern state.
And don't put words into my mouth either, I never said America only had one problem. Remember me pointing out the deficit? Oh right, I do recognize there's more than a few problems in the states.
Also, the American oversight agencies are notoriously inferior to every other western nation, don't try to pawn it off as "everyone has the same problem". When's the last time someone had an oil rig explode because there was not a single safety mechanism or fail-safe in place?
, there were several fail-safes in place. The problem was many of the first level fail-safes were damaged in the initial blast (now, we can track down who installed these or who made them, check their nationality and blame that nation but...) and the back up fail safes failed to activate due to several years of not being maintained. If you want to blame us somewhere, that'd be the place to do it.
Take a look at, for instance, Canada, which had a ship run aground in the St. Lawrence river. Within seconds, the spill was contained by automated fail-safe systems located on the ship. Those were required by law. Rescue ships and toxic clean up crews were there within one hour. That was Environment Canada, a government department. Within half the day, the ship was being towed away safely and everything was cleaned.
Ship != Oil Rig. Last I checked, that ship never had nearly as much oil as an oil rig, nor was it pumping out as insanely fast. This was the problem for the oil rig, which the ship can't compare to, thus why it was much easier to clean up. Also, toxic clean up crews and ships did arrive fast but there was too much oil to contain. Size difference here.
So, don't tell me that the government can't force safety measures on corporations for the benefit of people.
They did, BP got quite a beating from the US government as far as money was concerned. The problem here is who checking BP in the first place for this sort of stuff.
The thing about making witty signature lines is that it first needs to actually be witty.
