Have you ever had an old car, knowing that if it got stolen, you would then collect insurance on it so you could go buy a new car instead? If so, you would certainly look forward to that day. SO do you think your government is honestly "sad" that this incident happened? Or do you think the opposite, that they are actually now so fu%king happy looking forward to fine BP (probably Haliburton and Transocean too) millions, if not billions of $$$, over all kinds of criminal/environmental/civil charges? All the government actually ever wanted to happen are such incidents (excluding the human casualties though) in order to get their dirty hands on $$$$. Similar to the car analogy, simple as that.
