"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed, second it is violently opposed, and third, it is accepted as self-evident."
Arthur Schopenhauer, Philosopher, 1788-1860

An American Holocaust
The term is accurate in this context.
Holocaust = murder on a mass scale.
Future videos will show exactly how appropriate this term is, but in short, not only has BP unleashed an uncontainable disaster of geologic proportions, it's also spraying tons of a highly toxic substance - Corexit - at night, against the "request" of the EPA, not to contain the oil, but to mask the scale and scope of the disaster.
This is not only creating a ecological catastrophe of unprecedented proportions, it will sicken and kill thousands, possibly millions, of people, contaminate drinking water, and damage crops and agricultural land.
And make no mistake, this catastrophe is a major bonanza for the Oil Industrial Complex.
This includes pharmaceutical companies (more chronically sick people), agri-business (higher crop prices), and makers of genetically modified crops (watch for corexit-reistant seeds.)
This is not to mention all the interlocking oil companies which will: a) pick up BP's assets when it goes bankrupt (defaulting on its liabilities) and b) be able to pollute on a massive scale without so much as raising an eye brow.
After all, BP has set the bar on destruction so high that every other atrocity will seem trivial in comparison.
