Barack Obama sends nuclear experts to tackle BP's Gulf of Mexico oil leak - By James Quinn in Louisana - 
(Commentary by Franz J. T. Lee: ... joining the dinosaurs soon?! 

What is really happening in the Gulf of Mexico? Another 'Pearl Harbor' or '9/11' 'Twin Tower' Big Hoax?
When shall we ever learn?
When all the flowers are gone!
Something really dangerous is cooking very near to us.

When President Barack Obama entered the White House we warned that the other 'Democratic' Janus-face of the post-Orwellian Monster was already showing its cunning grin, its world fascist grimace. It is not the appearance form, it is not Obama in flesh and bones, or the 'Empire', it is a Herrenvolk, capable of any crime against humanity, against Mother Earth, the global, elitist, military and industrial corporate class in destructive frenzy. This international mafia is capable of anything, in order that a Big War means Big Business and that Big Business can only be achieved with a Global War.
The truth about the real world economy, about the critical political situation and about the raging military global war, we will not read in the mass media.
We will just wake up one morning, still dreaming about the Soviet Union or the Twin Towers, only to discover that somewhere somebody has dropped a nice 'humanist' bomb on some innocent people: this could occur anywhere, who knows, in North Korea, in Cuba, in Venezuela, in Iran? 

Beware, very strange things are happening; the next big military hoax is being designed at top speed, and we may swallow it again: with 'gusano', bait, hook, sinker and oiled shark all in one.

This time the victims may be uncountable.

Who sows the whirlwind, by playing his HAARP and painting his strontium  CHEMTRAILS, will reap radio-active Gulf storms, will join the dinosaurs!

Gulf of Mexico oil spill in the Loop Current

19 May 2010

Scientists monitoring the US oil spill with ESA’s Envisat radar satellite say that it has entered the Loop Current, a powerful conveyor belt that flows clockwise around the Gulf of Mexico towards Florida.

"With these images from space, we have visible proof that at least oil from the surface of the water has reached the current," said Dr Bertrand Chapron of Ifremer, the French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea.

Dr Chapron and Dr Fabrice Collard of France's CLS have been combining surface roughness and current flow information with Envisat Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) data of the area to monitor the proximity of the oil to the current.

In the ASAR image above, acquired on 18 May, a long tendril of the oil spill (outlined in white) extends down into the Loop Current (red arrow).

"We performed advanced processing methods on the images to display surface features like variations in roughness and velocity, which provides insight into the spatial structure of the spill and its transport by surface currents," Dr Collard explained.

From the ASAR images of 12 May and 15 May, the oil spill was observed stretching increasingly closer to the Loop Current, raising concerns that it could reach the current and be carried south towards coral reefs in the Florida Keys.

"Now that oil has entered the Loop Current, it is likely to reach Florida within six days," Dr Chapron said. "Since Envisat ASAR, ERS-2 and other SAR satellites are systematically planned to acquire data over the area, we will monitor the situation continuously."

The scientists warn however that since the Loop Current is a very intense, deep ocean current, its turbulent waters will accelerate the mixing of the oil and water in the coming days.

"This might remove the oil film on the surface and prevent us from tracking it with satellites, but the pollution is likely to affect the coral reef marine ecosystem," Dr Collard said.

Combined efforts using satellite imagery and in-situ measurements of collected water samples will help to assess whether oil is in the deep waters of the ocean.

The Loop Current joins the Gulf Stream — the northern hemisphere’s most important ocean-current system — sparking fears that oil could enter this system and be carried up to the US East Coast.

Barack Obama sends nuclear experts to tackle BP's Gulf of Mexico oil leak - The US has sent a team of nuclear physicists to help BP plug the "catastrophic" flow of oil into the Gulf of Mexico from its leaking Deepwater Horizon well, as the Obama administration becomes frustrated with the oil giant's inability to control the situation.

The five-man team – which includes a man who helped develop the first hydrogen bomb in the 1950s – is the brainchild of Steven Chu, President Obama's Energy Secretary.

He has charged the men with finding solutions to stop the flow of oil.

President Obama yesterday promised a "relentless" effort to resolve the problem as he criticised the "cozy relationship" BP and other oil companies have with US regulators in Washington.

He also denounced the attempts by executives from BP, Transocean and Haliburtion to blame each other during this week's congressional hearings into the rig disaster. "I will not tolerate more finger pointing or irresponsibility." Mr Obama said.

The five scientists visited BP's main crisis centre in Houston earlier this week, along with Mr Chu, and are to continue to work with the company's scientists and external advisers to reach an answer.

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Mr Hayward said the five-hour meeting involved a "very deep dive" into the situation at hand, with "lots of nuclear physicists and all sorts of people coming up with some quite good ideas actually."

Pressed further about the meeting, he said they had "come up with one good idea" but declined to elaborate.

The five include 82-year-old Richard Garwin, who designed the first hydrogen bomb, and Tom Hunter, head of the US Department of Energy's Sandia National Labs.

In addition, Mr Chu has already despatched Marcia McNutt, the head of the US Geological Service, to the oil company.

Mr Hayward is understood to be feeling the weight of increased pressure from Washington, following Mr Chu and Interior Secterary Ken Salazar's visit earlier this week and a series of testy Congressional hearings.

In an memo to BP staff, Mr Hayward wrote that reports of the hearings had made for "difficult viewing or reading".

He has told a number of his senior team they must stay with him in Houston until the problem is resolved, and was seen in Louisiana meeting with Robert Dudley, executive vice-president of BP's operations in the Americas.

President Obama accused BP and its contractors of "falling over each other to point the finger of blame at someone else," while adding "the potential devastation to the Gulf Coast, its economy and its people require us to continue our relentless efforts to stop the leak."

Thad Allen, a Coast Guard commandant, said that the slick "has the potential to be catastrophic."

BP was last night trying to position a "top hat" containment device – intended to slow the flow of oil – while still working on its final "top-kill" solution which involves filling the well with old golf balls and pieces of car tyre, followed by mud and then cement, in an attempt to absorb and then stop the flow.
