THE MYSTERY OF BP'S
[Pushing the United States that much closer to a
war for control of Central Asian and Middle Eastern oil]

Deepwater Horizon was -
"... a fifth-generation, RBS-8D design, ULTRA-DEEPWATER, dynamically
positioned, column-stabilized, semi-submersible mobile offshore drilling unit
(MODU), designed to drill sub-sea wells for oil exploration and production.
It is one of a very few oil rigs designed for drilling in waters more than
5,000 feet deep."
On April 20, 2010, the rig was in the final phases of drilling
an exploratory oil well at the Macondo Prospect, Gulf of Mexico, when at 09:45
p.m. CDT, a geyser of seawater erupted from the marine riser onto the rig,
shooting 240 ft into the air. This was soon followed by the eruption of a
slushy combination of mud, methane gas, and water. The gas component of the
slushy material quickly transitioned into a fully gaseous state and then
ignited into a series of explosions and then a firestorm. Workers immediately
attempted to activate the blowout preventer, but it failed. Eleven workers
were killed and many more injured.
to Kutcherov, the present oil spill flooding the Gulf
Coast shores of the United States "could go on for years
and years ... many years." The Obama Administration and
senior BP officials are frantically working not to stop
the world's worst oil disaster, but to hide the true extent
of the actual ecological catastrophe, a catastrophe that
may not only pollute the Gulf of Mexico, but also the
William Engdahl reports that according
to Vladimir Kutcherov - a professor at the Royal Institute of Technology
in Sweden and the Russian State University of Oil and Gas (and a leading specialist
in the theory of abiogenic deep origin of petroleum) - says,
"WHAT BP DRILLED INTO WAS WHAT WE CALL AN OIL 'MIGRATION CHANNEL',
a deep fault on which hydrocarbons generated in the depth of our planet migrate
to the crust and are accumulated in rocks, something like Ghawar in Saudi
NOTE: Ghawar, the world's most
prolific oilfield, has been producing millions of barrels daily for almost
70 years with no end in sight. According to ABIOTIC science, Ghawar
is located on an oil migration channel similar to that in the oil-rich Gulf
of Mexico. Kutcherov estimates that the entire Gulf of Mexico is one of
the planet's most abundant accessible locations to extract oil and gas.
GHAWAR, sitting atop one of the world's oil MIGRATION CHANNELS. Discovered
1948/49. Ghawar has produced 60-65% of all Saudi
According to the science of ABIOTICS, oil forms under MASSIVE
pressure in the Earth's mantle and "migrates" under the earth in virtual
rivers or "migration channels;" but these "rivers of oil"
can only be tapped by drilling deep – very deep - into the Earth's crust;
and when they are reached they inevitably EXPLODE to the surface
as a result of the EXTREME pressure they are under.
It seems that this is EXACTLY what happened with Deep Water Horizon.
BP had grossly underestimated the pressure of the MIGRATION CHANNEL
it had tapped into, and the result was catastrophic.
Insofar as Ghawar is concerned, it is one of the few places on earth where
these "migration channels" come close to the surface, and on land rather
than at sea.
The untamed MONSTER that BP unleashed on the world.
TO THE CRISIS
Naturally enough, drilling into the kind of oil MIGRATION
CHANNEL that BP was attempting to do is an EXTREMELY dangerous
and "IFFY" proposition – if only because of the very real chance that
once the MIGRATION CHANNEL is tapped into, the pressure under which
the oil was subjected would be too great to be managed, and the oil would
explode to the surface like an uncaged MONSTER.
Nonetheless, the Obama Administration – in secret collusion
with BP – decided that the risk was worth it: IT WOULD FREE THE U.S. FROM
DEPENDENCE ON MIDDLE EASTERN OIL and allow the Obama Administration to
withdraw from the turmoil of that region as it has promised to do. In the
process, it would alleviate the necessity of maintaining a huge military in
order to secure these deposits, something that would delight the "peaceniks"
on the Left.
It turns out, however, that while BP had the technology to
drill on a seabed more than 5,000 feet down, and from there another 5-6 miles
to reach the "migration channel," it did not possess the technology to control
the pressure the oil was under. As a result, both BP and Obama are now in
full "cover-your-ass" mode; to this end, Engdahl reports that the White House
has been resisting releasing any "damaging information" about the oil disaster
both to -
"Hide the extent of the ecological disaster that has befallen the planet,
and particularly, the United States."
NOTE: In this connection,
it should be noted that the Coast Guard and experts from the Corps of
Engineers estimate that if the ocean oil geyser is not stopped soon, there
will be irreversible damage to the marine eco-systems of the Gulf of Mexico
– a fact that Wayne Madsen says both BP and Obama are doing everything
in their power to conceal.
Nonetheless, Madsen says that over time it will become impossible to
hide the true extent of the crisis; he claims that even a cursory look
at a map of the Gulf Stream shows that the oil is not just going to cover
the beaches in the Gulf, it will spread to the Atlantic coasts up through
North Carolina then on to the North Sea and Iceland. And beyond the damage
to the beaches, sea life and water supplies, the Gulf Stream has a very
distinct chemistry, composition (marine organisms), density, temperature.
What happens if the oil and the dispersants and all the toxic compounds
they create actually change the nature of the Gulf Stream? Engdahl writes:
"Without doubt at this point we are in the midst of what could be the
greatest ecological catastrophe in history."
Pictures of the ecological damage - damage that may very well not be
contained along America's Gulf Coast, but could
pollute the waters of America's Atlantic Coast as
well. In this regard, it might be said that the
oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico may be the oil industry's
"Three Mile Island" event - something that will
permanently put an end to off shore drilling in
the United States just as the nuclear catastrophe
at Three Mile Island put an end to America's nuclear
Conceal the involvement of the Obama Administration – supposedly an ecologically
friendly administration - in the catastrophe.
Both Madsen and Engdahl say that the information BP and Obama
are releasing to the public amounts to nothing more than "pure public relations
disinformation designed to avoid panic."
According to Engdahl, what this clearly indicates is that the
Obama administration has been conspiring with BP to hide the extent of the
oil leak. For example, after the oil rig exploded and sank, the government
stated that 42,000 gallons per day were gushing from the seabed chasm. Five
days later, the federal government upped the leakage to 210,000 gallons a
day. However, submersibles monitoring the escaping oil from the Gulf seabed
are viewing television pictures of what they describe as a "VOLCANIC ERUPTION"
of oil much greater than any of the current estimates.
And then there is this: When the Army Corps of Engineers first
attempted to obtain NASA imagery of the Gulf oil slick they were denied that
access. By chance, National Geographic managed to obtain satellite imagery
shots of the extent of the disaster and posted them on their web site. Other
satellite imagery reportedly being withheld by the Obama administration, shows
that what lies under the gaping chasm spewing oil at an ever-alarming rate
is a cavern estimated to be the size of Mount Everest fed by a never-ending
river of oil. Madsen says that information regarding the extent of the crisis
has been given an almost national security-level classification to keep it
from the public.
NASA took this image of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that now is
visible across the entire Gulf of Mexico. The photo
was taken by NASA's Aqua Satellite. You can see the
oil on the beaches, even in Florida. The photo had to
be pried loose from the government under the Freedom
of Information Act.
"Only after the magnitude of the disaster became evident did Obama order
Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano to declare the oil disaster a 'national
security issue'. Although the Coast Guard and FEMA are part of her department,
Napolitano's actual reasoning for invoking national security was to block
media coverage of the immensity of the disaster."
CATASTROPE COULD LEAD TO END
OF DEEP WATER DRILLING
Journalist Stephen Dubner affirms the very good possibility
that the Gulf Oil spill could do to deep water drilling what the catastrophe
at the Three Mile Island nuclear facility did to the nuclear industry: End
all deep water oil drilling off the coast of the U.S.
"You can make the argument that the 1979 accident at the Three Mile Island
nuclear-power plant — which came just 12 days after the release of the film
The China Syndrome, a cautionary tale about a nuclear-plant meltdown
— helped stop the U.S. nuclear-energy industry dead in its tracks, and that
the same thing is going to happen to the oil industry insofar as deep water
drilling is concerned off America's coast."

"The Gulf disaster could be just the kind of tragic, visible, easy-to-comprehend
event that crystallizes the already-growing rush to de-petroleum our economy.
As with TMI, it won't do much to change the facts on the ground about how
energy is made. But as we've seen before, public sentiment can generate an
awful lot of energy on its own, for better or worse."
IF ALL THIS IS TRUE ...
If indeed the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico cannot be controlled,
and it continues to wreak havoc on America's Atlantic and Gulf coastlines,
destroying the livelihoods of millions and millions of people, then there
could be little doubt that –
The search for oil off America's coastline will come to
a screeching halt.
The Obama Administration will be TOTALLY discredited
once the collusion between itself and BP becomes known to
It will make war in the Middle East all but inevitable
because there will be no where else for the U.S. to turn to
feed its hunger for "BLACK GOLD."
One is left to wonder if all this is not a precursor to the
disaster the Bible speaks of in John 8:8-9:
"And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with
fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
"And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life,
died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed." (Revelation 8:8-9)
