The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is a federal agency and a major Army command made up of some 34,600 civilian and 650 military personnel, making it the world's largest public engineering, design and construction management agency. Although generally associated with dams, canals and flood protection in the United States, USACE is involved in a wide range of public works support to the nation and the Department of Defense throughout the world. The Corps of Engineers is the nation's number one provider of outdoor recreation and provides 24% of the US hydropower capacity. The Corps' mission is to provide vital public engineering services in peace and war to strengthen our Nations security, energize the economy, and reduce risks from disasters.
The disaster in the Gulf of Mexico sponsored by British Petroleum seems to be exactly what the Engineering Corps was designed to deal with. For over 200 years the Engineers of the United States Military have strenghtened the defense and infrastructure of America and it's interests abroad, bridged the battlefields of the world, and led the modern industry with innovation, excellence, and integrity. Let them try! Let the American Engineers try and stop the destruction of OUR coasts.
"Leave the Suntan Oil at home this Summer!" will be British Petroleum's new PR slogan for this summer's vacationers in the Gulf Coast to win our "hearts and minds" rather than be responsible for the attack on our southern coasts. BP obviously has no clue or care how to solve the oil-leak catastrophy, although supposedly having safety measures for apparent dangers pertaining to underwater oil-drilling. Sadly the British Crown Corporations have been far more detrimental to America and its freedoms as partners as they ever were before the Revolution. When this counrty was formed, corporations and central banks were illegal and had to be approved by the citizenry via local and state government. Approval depended upon the corporation's affect on the public good. If it had no benefit or harbored any threat whatsoever it was denied and stopped. If we look at the bottom line, corporations and banks have caused far more destruction to our way of life than any other threat or enemy in America's history 1000 fold. Axis Dictator Benito Mussolini coined modern fascism as "corporatism"
. Thomas Jefferson stated in a letter to John Taylor in 1816 after the first central bank in America was reinstated. He wrote, "And I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale." And in a letter to John Wayles Eppes, "Bank-paper must be suppressed, and the circulating medium must be restored to the nation to whom it belongs." Currently all big corporation and banking in America originates from royal ownership from abroad. Seems that every where we look Americans and freedom are under seige by the mindless and irresponsible global corporations and banks creating chaos after chaos offering only solutions which leave the citizenry homeless and holding the bill.
Perhaps we need to re-evaulate what the REAL threats are to our freedom and engineer a way to surmount these hazards and obstacles.
