letter to president obama regarding the oil spill

Dear Mister President Obama,

I wish to thank you and your administration’s effort in the Gulf Of Mexico Oil Spill so far. I feel that I can speak for many of us who are also standing by to watch in horror and sadness that this catastrophe is on going and will continue until August and beyond. We all want to help Mister President, we want to help so badly that we may do drastic things if we do not see results soon. I know that you get thousand of letters that you and your staff may never get to answer, but I dare to think that I may be heard.

I read that you are doing everything that you can and BP is also doing everything that they can. But as a cynical public I know, my common sense tells me that I am not hearing the truth. The solution to the oil spill has to be for the United States Government to stop the oil leak now. The solution will not come from BP because their every failed attempts so far were to “contain”, more exact to extract, the oil. We all know this has been their objective from the beginning.

A solution no one dare to mentioned is to remove the blow out preventer , BOP, that stands in the way of so many other solutions to cap this well. The oil industry has many tools and equipment already made and available to cap and fill this well, but all is moot when the BOP stands in the way. Everything has not been done because BP goals is still to extract. The American people’s goal on the other hand is to stop the flow off oil now and not August. We cannot settle for anything other than a 100% success.

We as the citizen of this great country need you to protect us. We are being harmed, and our future poisoned. Please do not let this be a Pearl Harbor and 9-11, where early warnings went unnoticed. This man made, man caused disaster will surpass both of those historic events in terms of damage to the economy and natural resources. If you must treat it as an act of aggression to this country in order for you to mobilize this country to protect itself, then please do so.

Thank you very much for your time Mister President.
