    can produce shows with an ROV. I think the US can get one pretty easy. Just how many research, oil industry and salvage operations use rovs?

      ....definitely not claiming to be the definitive expert on the nation's ROV supply though. Just saying (not that I don't loathe BP no matter what they say at the moment) there might be a halfway non-evil reason for it.

        Just as this point with 40 days lead time I think our gov needs our own to look over the shoulder of BP.

          Every single thing they have do to this point - taking shortcuts that caused the disaster, putting out false or misleading info, downplaying the amount of oil gushing, trying capture methods instead of trying to kill it straight off - everything is for the bottom line and NOT to end the crisis with the least amount damage no matter the cost.

          I don't believe in biblical "good vs. evil", but BP's actions thus far only point to extreme greed and maximum profit over the well-being of the planet and the citizens of this country....THAT, to me, is evil.

          And I agree that the Gov. needs to get in front of this or bad, bad things will happen.

      about the difficulty and time it took to get what they have there.

      Apparently the number of ROV's being used is unheard of before this event.

      They had to have been brought in from everywhere, which also means bringing in the best people to operate them.
