    From what I read Churpa, the dummies cut into a load bearing (crude oil) high pressure pipe with an oxy-acetylene cutting torch. Someone is asleep at the switch with regard to threatening management with huge fines and jail time for disregarding safety protocol. The circus between Halliburton and British Petroleum that occurred before the Deep Horizon disaster (It appears British Petroleum was at fault) is a clue that the petroleum industry has to be threatened with massive increases in government regulations and supervision unless they clean up their act.

    What has this got to do with Mexico?

    When Petroleos Mexicanos gets criticized by environmental groups for allowing oil slicks off the beaches in Tabasco and Campeche Pemex turns around and points it finger northward at the USA. “Why should we?”
