    Three days after the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico began on April 20, the Netherlands offered the U.S. government ships equipped to handle a major spill, one much larger than the BP spill that then appeared to be underway. “Our system can handle 400 cubic metres per hour,” Weird Koops, the chairman of Spill Response Group Holland, told Radio Netherlands Worldwide, giving each Dutch ship more cleanup capacity than all the ships that the U.S. was then employing in the Gulf to combat the spill.

    Thank you for this article. It explains best with the sound of credibility... those 'rumours' I'd been hearing on talk radio... without supporting evidence... nor my time to explore a search.

    We are living in a world with so much illusion that it is hard to get to the truth. I find myself even feeling a greater sympathy for Bush if, what I heard today, proves true. (Not wishing to break topic here...I hope I can remember to research that more before posting info.)

    The truth is ..... many of these environmental groups were actually seeded with money and started by the industrialist.... and the oil companies in particular. The purpose.... to create and mobilize a forum for others who have genuine concern for toxicity and the environment to align themselves and be the 'legs' and voices of activism against........... targets (which with frequent conincidence just happens to be) the smaller competition. The people behind these designs have no morals: They have no God.... but their god is money and power and the prince of the air rules them..... most take their spiritual directions from the philosophies, teachings, and writings of spiritualist and occultist. They each have a cold heart and few, if any, emotional ties. Their influence follows generations and control of families money and contacts insure their heritage follows in the marital alliances of their children. (Please see my thread/ book report on THE BROTHERHOOD OF DARKNESS on the BB under Books/ Current Reading.)

    There is a very real reason Obama 'sat' for years under Jerimiah Wright w/o being aware of his racially motivated 'hate' America preaching...... He didn't hear it! He was a 'member' in good standing w/ 'reported' regular attendance..... right? Or was he? Who took his attendance record? Chances are the report was one thing the truth was another... thus his real shock and abrupt disengagement. What is his real faith .....and where is his real allegiance? Not part of this topic.... but trying to make a point.

    Our representatives, except for a precious few who are really trying (God bless them and pray for their continuance and protection), no longer represent us nor the best interest of the United States. Some are truly traitorous dogs while others follow the program possibly under threat of survival... life or career or both. Whether this 'spill' is accidental or not, is beside the point.

    The point is our own government is and has been, since its occurrance, participated in stalling and delays, participated in stifling information and misinformation and in other ways insured that a maximum amount of destruction to the businesses, home fronts, economies along the Gulf coast and exposure of the people to the toxicity which may be in the air and rain and is in the ocean water while it benefits from the distraction to the other internal and global problems which should be of concern to all of us.

    Obama wants a 'kill' switch to control the internet. Wonder why? It is becoming the only real source of information as the MSM acts like a IV drip in releasing disconnected facts.... when they present any at all ....and entertaining the masses as usual casting their hypnotic spell.

    Thanks again for the article. It is right on, imo.

    Probably plain old American pride and arrogance. You favorite president refused Dutch engineering advice after Katrina. Our Corps of Engineers knows everything better than everyone.

    Politics over Problem solving

    "Three days after the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico began on April 20, the Netherlands offered the U.S. government ships equipped to handle a major spill,..."


    Instead of focusing the governments attention on solving the disaster, Obama turned it immediately into a political ploy.

    There is always time for finger pointing AFTER you solve the problem.
