The Pentagon takes an interest in economic warfare.
And BP may be a US target.
In March 2009, the Pentagon sponsored a war game focused on economic warfare. (Pentagon preps for economic warfare - Eamon Javers - POLITICO.com)
"This was an example of the changing nature of conflict," said Paul Bracken, a professor and expert in private equity at the Yale School of Management.
One might ask: DID AMERICANS SABOTAGE AIR FRANCE 447?
In February 2010, Wayne Madsen reported that "the Obama administration authorized the anti-Toyota campaign as a warning shot to Japan over its reformist government’s insistence that the U.S. pull its military troops out of Okinawa." (Obama waging economic warfare on several fronts, including Japan)

"It would seem only logical... for a puppet president to order covert attacks upon foreign competitors. GM (government motors) has now pulled ahead of Toyota...
"BP has fallen from its formerly unassailable status as world's top oil company and may be subject to "hostile takeover."
"The fact that the Deepwater Horizon explosion has been blamed on faulty sealing work on the seabed drill hole done by Halliburton (Cheney's company) should set-off alarm bells.
"It is worth recalling here that Halliburton was at the center of another international/environmental catastrophe, the Kuwaiti "cross-drilling" operation that ignited the 'Gulf War' and the resultant hundreds of oil well firings."
Was BP sabotaged and will BP be taken over?
On 2 June 2010, we see the BP share price fall yet again. (BP oil spill: Shares fall further)
BP could become a takeover target. (BP a takeover target?)
UK Journalist Toby Young has written that "If BP goes under as a result of Obama's tub-thumping populism the already tattered Special Relationship will never recover." (President Obama's war on BP is a war against UK PLC )
"The collapse of BP would have catastrophic consequences for the British economy." (President Obama's war on BP is a war against UK PLC )
Did the US sabotage BP?
According to a former crash investigator, "In the Deepwater Horizon, three fail safe systems failed to operate as they were designed to do.
"Another indication of tampering.
"The likelihood that all these systems failed at the same time in the sequence necessary to produce this outcome is astronomical." (BP oil rig disaster a terror attack...... or government sabotage ...)
There is some controversy over whether or not certain people knew in advance about the Gulf of Mexico rig explosion.
There was a report that certain people 'betted' on TransOcean stocks falling.
The report has been described as 'satire'.
We have read that someone did indeed short the Gulf of Mexico
Reportedly, someone placed 'shorts' on TransOcean stock days before the explosions in the Gulf of Mexico.
Reportedly, Goldman Sachs did the same with airline stocks prior to 911 and again with the housing bubble.
A. True Ott, Ph.D., wrote the following:
I have confirmed that there were indeed numerous "shorts" placed on TransOcean stock just days before the "problem".
Was it Goldman Sachs?
Reportedly, Dr. Ott has confirmed from two sources that Goldman Sachs was in on the shorts being placed on TransOcean stock. (See Email from Don Nicoloff documenting Goldman Sachs short puts on TransOcean stock.)
US SABOTAGE OF BP?
In April 2010 there was an explosion on Deepwater Horizon, the drilling rig being used by BP off the coast of the USA. The share price of BP has dropped dramatically.

In December 2008 we read in The Telegraph that "The most startling takeover target of the year will be BP, which will attract interest from Exxon Mobil...
"BP will be historically cheap by most measures..." - After a year of shocks, prepare for more in 2009
2. In 1982, President Reagan approved a CIA plan to sabotage the Russian economy by supplying technology that contained hidden malfunctions.
This technology included software that triggered a huge explosion in a Siberian natural gas pipeline, according to a memoir by a Reagan White House official. (WashPost: CIA slipped bugs to Soviets - Washington Post- msnbc.com)
3. Halliburton was in charge of cementing for Deepwater Horizon. (Halliburton May Be Culprit In Oil Rig Explosion )
Giant oil-services provider Halliburton may be a primary suspect in the investigation into the oil rig explosion that has devastated the Gulf Coast, the Wall Street Journal reports.
