Conspiracy theories are fun!
Let’s start easy, and Rush Limbaugh is always an easy target. Listen to this video. (I would embed it but I couldn’t figure out how). He discusses the “timing of the blowing up” and brings up the carbon bill that was scheduled to be voted on “earf day” and how it was opposed by “environmental wackos.” SWAT teams were send to other oil rigs to “secure them,” and he brings everything together by hinting, but not outright saying, that these “environmental wackos” blew up the rig. Because the best way to save the enviroment is to create the largest environmental disaster in U.S. history. Makes complete sense.
And then you have those pesky North Koreans and their Gulf Navy Fleet. That would be the Gulf of Mexico. Those North Koreans have presence in every sea you know! Let’s take a look at this report:
A grim report circulating in the Kremlin today written by Russia’s Northern Fleet is reporting that the United States has ordered a complete media blackout over North Korea’s torpedoing of the giant Deepwater Horizon oil platform owned by the world’s largest offshore drilling contractor Transocean that was built and financed by South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd., that has caused great loss of life, untold billions in economic damage to the South Korean economy, and an environmental catastrophe to the United States.
So…this was an attack against South Korea?
Most important to understand about this latest attack by North Korea against its South Korean enemy is that under the existing “laws of war” it was a permissible action as they remain in a state of war against each other due to South Korea’s refusal to sign the 1953 Armistice ending the Korean War.
Hmm. I wonder if they realize that it is probably a lot easier to attack South Korea in South Korea, not in the Gulf of Mexico.
On the night of April 20th the North Korean Mini Submarine manned by these “suicidal” 17th Sniper Corps soldiers attacked the Deepwater Horizon with what are believed to be 2 incendiary torpedoes causing a massive explosion and resulting in 11 workers on this giant oil rig being killed outright. Barely 48 hours later, on April 22nd , this North Korean Mini Submarine committed its final atrocity by exploding itself directly beneath the Deepwater Horizon causing this $1 Billion oil rig to sink beneath the seas and marking 2010’s celebration of Earth Day with one of the largest environmental catastrophes our World has ever seen…
…To whatever decision Obama makes it remains a fact that with each passing hour this environmental catastrophe grows worse. And even though Obama has ordered military SWAT teams to protect other oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico from any further attack…
How are SWAT teams going to prevent a submarine from attacking? And military SWAT teams? SWAT teams are law enforcement. “Military SWAT Teams” would be Navy SEALs or Chuck Norris.
I think it was a conspiracy of nature. You see, physics decided to make this thing called pressure. It put it really deep so that scientists would think that having almost a mile of water and a lot of rock would cause pressure, but it was just physics laughing at us. And when the time was right, pressure released a lot of gas that carried fine particles and shot everything up really fast, eating away at the metal in the BOP. Pressure blew up a bomb when it got to the surface, one that the Australians gave to it because Australians are weird.
Almost. Gas escapes at a very high pressure; the gas, being flammable, ignites when something sparks at the surface and BOOM. When the rig collapsed the pipes bend, and it only takes a very small hole to make a very big leak. At the pressure the oil is at it is like a sand blaster. It is enough to take of your arm. Here and here for some really good insights into what’s happening. Nothing will convince conspiracy theorists they are wrong. If they looked at evidence and used sound logic they wouldn’t belive in their theories. They do entertain me though.
