Second Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. You should work for the papers. A headline of "Second Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico", when all that has been reported so far is another explosion. Nothing about an oil spill. Maybe the BOP actually worked and all is well with the environment this time? Maybe there should be a pause while the facts are reported? Just a thought.
  2. I do believe a sheen had been reported.
  3. It's also not even a drilling rig. It's one of these staging posts that might have a few barrels of oil on it but is not actually pumping up the black gold so a couple of barrels won't do much. Plus they are also saying it was a fire and not an explosion. Mind you, I can imagine the quickening of pulses in the States when the news first broke.
