Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
as noted, the Ixtoc leak was similarly big and dissipated.
The Erika spill in France (like the Amoco Cadiz a couple decades earlier) also damaged hundreds of kilometers of delicate, touristy coastline with tens of thousands of tons of nasty goo (the Erika stuff was especially nasty).

Like 9/11 (when terrorism was suddenly invented), this looks like the US is suddenly discovering oil pollution and panicking/overreacting.
