Should the US use the old Russian trick to deal with the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico?

Asked by Lightlyseared (30865points) May 5th, 2010

Back in the days of the Soviet Union they used to use nukes to close the leak in order to stop it (apparantly with an 80% success rate.

So…. whats worse the oil or a nuke.

So if the Ruskies could do it then why can’t we? Seems they were quite successful at it too! I love a good BOOM every now and then! Letting this well bleed this long is criminal!
