I suspect the Deepwater Horizon "accident" was BP orchestrated industrial sabotage...intended to drive up the spill liability cap (the amount of available cash an oil company has to have before they're allowed to covers costs in case a spill occurs. A drastically increased cap will drive all smaller drillers out of business in the USA (and eventually, probably, all around the world)....and BP can by up their incredibly valuable drilling leases). Read the book...and maybe you'll understand why I suspect that. John Browne had an ice-cold heart...and a love for handsome, young male escorts! "What do John's preferences have to do with it?" you might ask. Well, nothing, except, I consider anal-sex to be a severely abusive type of behavior...and I find myself wondering: if John was willing to do that to handsome male escorts for pleasure, what would he be willing to do to handsome male drilling-rig crewmembers for billions and billions of dollars in annual profits added to BP's treasury?
