Why don't they implode the oil well and shut it down! They seem too intent on "capturing" oil- they're killing the ocean.
Implosion has been done successfully elsewhere.

The press was all over Bush about Katrina, when it was the La Governor who told Bush "no" to help early on, but you will never read that in any liberal rag. The Feds cannot just go into a state and take over without being asked, but Bush called and was told no This problem happened in federal waters. Obama could have responded with any of the agencies at his disposal to help or contain or keep people out of the way. More than 20 foreign countries have offered help, with equipment and manpower, Obama has responded once, with a no. Even his own butt kissing written press is getting on him now, it would be laughable, if it wasnt so tragic. Must be Obama and his oil buddies. Bobby Jindahl took matters into his own hands and was digging a trench, only to have the military shut it down, who is getting in the way now

I agree, we need an explaination as to why they didn't implode the well. Is it because of the wreckage?

Could you explain what you mean by "implode"? If you are talking of putting explosives close as they did in Iraq after the first war, that didn't stop the flow. It blew out the fire, like blowing out a candle. The oil still gushed it just wasn't on fire. They had to then cap the well to shut off the gusher. Since there is no fire underwater a close explosive detonation would do nothing.

From what I've read, they didn't implode the well because there was some uncertainty as to whether or not that would guarantee a seal. The concern was that if the implosion wasn't 100% successful then there would be no way to cap it.

Nailed it! Iraq continues to recover.

As for the implosion; simply, it means the oil becomes impossible to recover. Yes, in the end it's still all about the oil.
