What army? Our armed forces have been stretched to their limit over the last 8 years. Ironically, this country doesn't have the military strength to protect itself.

Besides, what would the army do? It's not like they've got oil spill specialists waiting in the wings to swoop in and fix this thing. They're a fighting force, not a bunch of guys from ServiceMaster. The simple fact of the matter is that the only people who have the hardware and know-how to resolve this are in the oil industry.

Contrary to popular belief, the government is NOT the fix for most problems.
