The Louisiana native who was the commander of task force Katrina has some very definitive ideas about what should be done with this oil disaster. Lieutenant General Russel Honoré says World War III needs to be declared in an effort to win this battle of the oil. He also likens BP to a "mugger" and then "having the burglar determine what the compensation is."

The Gulf of Mexico needs to be saturated with military power says the retired General. And it needs to start now. We'll have our candid conversation with Russel Honoré tonight on AC 360.
