Drill baby, drill

Please explain to me how a company that claims to be Beyond Petroleum and was responsible for the worst enviromental disaster in US history has decided to start an even deeper deepwater drill off the coast of Libya!

BP may have used their power to get the Lockerbie bomber freed in order to sweeten Libya. While this is an appalling abuse of power in search of profit, the response by the US is equally arrogant in summoning the Scottish government to account for their actions. Clearly the triangle is completed by the US anger against BP.

If people ever wanted an example of corporate influence gone mad combined with a complete blinkeredness to anything that is beyond petroleum then BP is it.
