I'm not going to address your entire post, but I would like to inform you that the $75m cap only applies if BP follows the minimal safety regulations. Also, BP bribed (implicitly or explicitly) MMS regulators with cocaine, sex, and more. And BP is a MNC. Don't act as if it is viewed any other way. Many Americans are stockholders. And yes, US foreign policy is hypocritical. Get the fuck over it. That's how world politics works. Hell, that's how politics in general works.
