Vatic Note: Its becoming more and more obvious that Iran has absolutely no agressive intentions toward the US. Its also becoming obvious that Israel wants to confiscate Irans wealth and oil fields which is not a legal justification to attack another nation. At this point we should withdraw from supporting Israel in this adventure. Where are Israels offers to help us??? LOL Yeah, right! Reminds me of Katrina, our government refusing all aid and assistance from other countries which helped us to see the "war game" nature of the event by refusing to aid the victims for a full three days after the event. lets see if our nation will accept help and aid from other nations, otherwise this will look like the Sampson Option by those running our government. Its time to start putting solutions up to these problems we keep pointing out. Here is the first one below. Its something WE can do and not rely on our elected officials.
Solution: Strategy and tactic, image Iran helping us and succeeding in making the oil flow stop and then image us having a healthy and great mutually beneficial relationship with Iran. Another option is for us to send a letter to the Iranian people thanking them for their offer. I think that would be a great idea.
Iran offers to help contain US oil spill

The National Iranian Drilling Company (NIDC) has offered to assist the US in efforts to prevent an ecological disaster caused by the spreading oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Following an explosion on a BP-operated oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico last month, at least 210,000 gallons (5,000 barrels) of crude oil are thought to be spilling into the water every day.
NIDC managing director Heidar Bahmani announced the firm's readiness to use its decades-long expertise to fight the oil slick, the company's public relations office told Press TV.
"Our oil industry experts in the field of drilling can contain the rig leakage in the Gulf of Mexico and prevent an ecological disaster in that part of the world," Bahmani said.
Overlooking the new US drive for slapping more UN sanctions on Iran over its civilian nuclear program, the company said that there is an urgent need for action to protect the nearby coasts from the advancing oil spill.
The governors of Alabama, Louisiana and Florida have reportedly called a state of emergency for fear of the oil slick's environmental and economic damages.
The disaster has also prompted the White House to ban oil drillings in new areas of the US coast until the British company explains the cause of the explosion that killed 11 employees and resulted in the oil spill.
