I just saw on the cnn website that "U.S. sending officials to Europe to coordinate effort to stop "outrageous" violence in Libya, President Obama says. "

Does this mean that we are going to end up in a war with Libya?

I find it funny that the day after Gaddafi says hes going to sabotage the countries oil supply and send it to the dark ages, The United States suddenly cares. Just yesterday morning Hillary Clinton sounded bored by the issue.

God i hate her

Who would we be fighting? I guess old Momar is bussing in paid fighters to slaughter at will. I'm guessing EU is more worried about the oil they get from Libya than anything else.

What I'd expect from this is we'll send in troops to support the UK's and BP's oil interests in Libya by keep Gaddafi in power.

US can't win no matter what they do. If we try and stop it we'll be called imperialist war mongers etc and if we sit out everybody will squeal how we sit around and let genocide occur. I say nuke Mecca.

I do believe that the US and Oxy have more of an interest in Libyan oil than the UK or BP..

www.oxy.com...

Oxy was the first American company to resume oil operations in Libya when U.S. sanctions were lifted in 2005. Oxy reentered its original producing areas after a 19-year absence and is applying advanced technologies to enhance production. In 2008, Oxy reached new 30-year agreements with Libya to redevelop and explore in its most prolific producing area, the Sirte Basin.


Interestingly Oxy almost had the same scale incident in the North Sea as BP did in the Gulf (similar volumes, but at a shallower depth, tho the incident killed 167 on the rig)

en.wikipedia.org...

However interestingly, Tharos, the Piper Alpha support rig that capped the well . before it got anywhere near disastrous proportions (aside from lost life) started the drilling the Macondo Well in Gulf but was replaced by Deep Water horizon just before the Gulf disaster..

en.wikipedia.org...

However back on topic it is interesting that the UKs papers (namely the Telegraph) is calling what is happening in the Libya "Civil War".. which does start to open the door up to intervention from external sources

Li bya: civil war breaks out as Gaddafi mounts rearguard fight

Personally, I don't really care anymore. This whole mudball we call Earth is starting to make me sick to my stomach.

I've tried to keep optimistic, but to be honest it's hard to when every country is after its own greedy interest.

I'm on the verge of wiping my hands off the affairs of this World.

Not sure who exactly it goes to but I read they were going to cut off oil to the Med from Libya.

Why would any of you think Obama would be there to help the protesters or protect them? The spark of all of this is from Wiki leaks which our gov allowed to spread. You see this global revolution is needed if they want their one world gov and destabilizing oil is the way to do it. To get a world union together this is the way to do it.
Saudi Arabia is the key, if they fall apart, oil is disrupted or at $200 a barrel oil. The administration is behind what is going on here too…..
Step back a few more steps and it will get clearer.

Early morning, I've heard in the radio Libya hardly represents only de 2% of the world oil demand. That's because Momar kept all the money for him, without investing to upgrade their technology.

Now Saudi Arabia said they are ready to increase their production if it's necesary to cover the deficit Libya can create. That means Momar got nothing to use against us.

So your saying we have no bravery...after two tours, then your going to come back and say we do the right thing? We are tired of fighting for you idiots. Cry oil...yet most of you drive cars correct? We go in and help libya out....your going to say were after oil.....we sit back and say let em kill each other, and you cry how something must be done, and what is the point of having such a strong military....we have such a strong military in case our country is attacked, we don't have to worry about hyprotical idiots [snip] who will be the first ones to to run to canada.
