BP rejects Avatar director's call for Russian mini-subs to help

There are 22 comments on the en.rian.ru story from Jun 4, 2010, titled BP rejects Avatar director's call for Russian mini-subs to help. In it, en.rian.ru reports that:

U.S. filmmaker James Cameron suggested to BP that Russian mini-subs Mir help to tackle oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, but the oil major rejected the idea, a senior Russian researcher said on Thursday.

Anatoly Sagalevich of Russia's Shirshov Institute of Oceanology, which owns the Mir submersibles, said he discussed with Cameron how the min-subs could help to tackle the oil spill, but British Petroleum (BP) authorities had strongly rejected the proposal.

Explaining BP's dismissal of his institute's expertise, Sagalevich said: "We are Russians, and if we go to the Gulf of Mexico with Mirs and do something there, the Americans would be appalled."

Since Limeys are not capable to tackle that oil spill, why not allow the Russians to try ?

Wasn't BP kicked out of Russia or something? Involved in some sort of dispute, so BP's rejection probably has more to do with that than us being "appalled". After all, the Russians are helping us out in Mexico, right?

It seems to me, no dispute should be taken into consideration here.
Oil spill is so catastrophic, anyone who could help to solve it should be allowed without any delay.
Even Polaks could be considered /wink /

Females on the internet? Unpossible!

Actually, that would explain the Cassandra cognomen (which is an unfortunate one by the way).....

I'd say something about seksual innuendo here, but I don't think it's needed.

And I didn't mean "cookies" like that! Besides, you're under 18.

In Greek mythology, Cassandra; "she who entangles men".

Now, if it would be "she who entangles confused little boys pretending to be men on this forum", I'd say 'perfect!'. ;-)

I don't mind at all.
Just naming yourself after a prophetess who was doomed to be ignored in everything she said seems strange on a forum.

That's how I meant it! Except she was doomed to be ignored when she would warn people.

Cookies! See, you gave me cookies and I didn't need to do any "entangling" or even ask haha
