Defense Secretary Gates on Oil Spill….The US Military can’t handle it……

The U.S. military has no expertise that could solve the oil spill from a ruptured well in the Gulf of Mexico, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on June 4.

“I know there’s been some commentary about this. The truth of the matter is we don’t have any expertise in this area,” Gates told reporters during a visit to Singapore.

As BP has struggled to stop oil from gushing out of its ruptured well, some lawmakers and commentators have called for the American military to take over the effort.

Gates said the military had no magic bullet to address the worst oil spill in U.S. history, though it had provided some equipment and other assistance.

He said that “we’ll do whatever we can to help but this is not our area of specialty.”

  1. Why the Hell would the military have any “expertise” in this area?

    I say “unleash” the genius of the great Free Enterprise system and

    Wait we already have “unleashed” BP

    Now we are trying to “cap” em

    How much more “unleashing” can we stand?

  4. I posted that more than a week ago…..

    Are you surprised?????

    I believe I gave the explanation that this country will continue to Drill (Manila) because it is in the countries nation interest….

    I did point out that once the main pipe is relieved by the two relief pipes to be done by August…..BP will resume making revenue from the well…..The oil going up the cap is making money…….Get It?

    This IS American everyone….

    It IS about making money…..Don’t EVER forget that!
