Obama is suposed to be the most 'powerful' man in the world but as far as this oil spill is concerned he is 'powerless' It is up to BP and other Engineers to solved the problem. Obama can't.
Strutting around like John Wayne talking of 'kicking ass' fools no one. He is impotent.
The Americans have short memories.
From a newspaper:

When America's Union Carbide was responsible, in 1984, for the Bhopal gas explosion, which killed more than 22,000 Indians, and destroyed the health of more than 500,000, the US Government arranged for its Chief Executive, Warren Anderson, to skip out of India, never to return. What creeps they are'
That just about sums it up!

From another newspaper:

'America doesn't have friends, it has interests'

I'm inclined to agree.
