"I don't know. I don't know." Tony Hayward, BP CEO, in a creative commons photo compliments of Wikipedia, was evasive with legislators about the BP disaster.
Former president Bush warned that the war on terror would go on for many years. However long that war endures, the battle for resources promises to be longer. If BP CEO Tony Hayward gives us any clues, it's that the war for resources will be even more insidious than the war on terror. Its targets will move like phantoms, protected by vast wealth and the governments they undermine. The enemies in this war, like Hayward, will be brutal as they manage their own interests. They will be our worse criminals and utterly untouchable.
