The next several parts of The Great Gulf Coast Holocaust will demonstrate that four predatory criminal enterprise corporations consisting of what I have dubbed, The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse (i.e., Transocean, British Petroleum, Halliburton and Goldman Sachs), had demonstrable foreknowledge of the impending explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig. Rather than alerting the authorities, the public and the employees stationed on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig of the impending disaster, instead chose to remain silent and to position themselves to profit from this event which resulted in 11 completely avoidable fatalities as well as resulting in the ecological destruction of an entire region with an ongoing and an ever-expanding perimeter of devastation.
For those who are not lucky enough to have won the BP propaganda lottery by having been selected to be the face of BP fairness while receiving financial restitution in exchange for assisting BP in their shameless self-promotion tactics, there are untold numbers of Gulf workers who have been underpaid or not paid at all.
It’s been labeled the worst environmental disaster in world history, and rightfully so, because the British Petroleum (BP) oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is like the nightmarish gift that keeps on giving.
President Obama went on to say many parties, including the federal government should accept blame for the disaster, he stopped short of saying he, himself, should be imprisoned for his part in so destroying life in the Gulf.
