Here's the question to welcome you back to work:

Did America cause this tragedy?

Here's why I ask -- the final paragraph of this story reads thus:
"How can this be, that people are so poor in Nigeria that they will risk their lives for a little thing," said Bode Kuforiji, a 28-year-old university lecturer. "But boats leave for America everyday filled with oil."
What's the basis of this comparison this person makes? How are the two things related?

I may have more to say about this later today. We'll see.
