Phoenix Rising from the Gulf is a mouthful of a name for a blog, but it's a blog that's asking the right questions. Specifically, it's asked five questions about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill:
I. Why did BP, knowingly and purposefully, drill in such close proximity to a salt formation/mud volcano?
II. Why did BP, with the full blessing of the US Coast Guard, execute not one, but two, failed attempts to cap the gushing well, knowing that the frozen hydrates would guarantee the failure of both containment domes?
III. Why did BP create a transparently false narrative for public consumption around the drilling of the two relief wells… with virtually no follow-up?
IV. Why was BP so determined to disappear the oil as quickly as possible in the face of fierce public opposition to the highly toxic and essentially ineffective dispersant COREXIT, and in blatant violation of EPA directives to discontinue its use?
V. Why was BP, a foreign transnational corporation, given the lead position in the unified command structure established by the Federal Government, to effectively enforce martial law in U.S. territorial waters, even to the extent that the five concerned sovereign states have been held hostage throughout the entire crisis? Bear in mind that this unlawful, unconstitutional, and treasonous conduct on the part of the US Government is unprecedented in American history, as is the lawless and criminal behavior of BP et al.
Number five is definitely the most important question of all. And the answer, as far as The Konformist is concerned, is that the Obama Administration was more interested in not angering a giant transnational oil company than protecting the economic and environmental well-being of the people of that area. The Gulf spill then is not just an environmental disaster, it is the end result of Obama's economic policies of serving powerful corporate interests...
