    We should have used BP's up-do-date emergency response plan, and they clearly knew what they were doing when they were fighting against Canada's consideration of requiring relief-wells to be drilled at the same time as the main well because "that's a waste of time, not needed, there is nothing our blowout preventer couldn't handle."

    The only consistent thing out of you is that the Government should have 0% say when it comes to regulating anybody, and 100% of the responsibility once things get screwed up.

      Actually, in order for him to be consistent.... Government should only be responsible if a democrat is in office.
      I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

        F**k the finger pointing, lets get this closed off, and under control.

        Correct, fix the problem first with all the resources we can get our hands on. Do the blame game later.

          [QUOTE=ScareCrow57;1188520]Have you ever tried to plug the end of a hose while the water is coming out? Not an easy task.



          YES, Have you???

          Many times when a driver turned water into the line before we got the wye connected! We just got faster doing our job and ended up having it connected and on the street before the water arrived.
          Stay Safe and Well Out There....

            I see, so they should have drilled faster so as to be in place before the pressure arrived.
