A source in BP says it may need to raise $50 billion go cover costs related to the disaster according to Businessweek. This means BP might have to consider selling some of it's assets, which work in favor of the US' geopolitics. (for ex: energy resources from strategically important regions such as Azerbaijan). This is something the US hasn't been able to do itself. Selling could very seriously jeopardize strategically sensitive energy assets.
So is destroying BP both in the public opinion and in their bank rolls REALLY in our national interest? Something to consider.
