    The Gulf of Mexico oil spill is an international subject because of it's economic impact on trade, because it raised oil prices, because it forced global oil companies to re-evaluate their existing safety measure, because their were many countries drilling in the Gulf, etc.

    The Gulf of Mexico touches Cuba, the US, Mexico, and water doesn't stay in one place.

    Many countries are drilling in the Gulf other than the United States. China is drilling in Cuban waters just 90 miles away from Florida. Brazil is drilling in US waters thanks to Obama.

    it was the largest oil spill in u.s. history other then the exxon valdez oil spill, and questioned whether we should have offshore drilling or not
