Just thought I'd post this from the BBC News, live feed.
I think the 2% of the world's oil was a nice bonus, but what I think they really wanted was the power.
I'm talking about two things, stratetgic dominance, and one less country to resist the global order.

If this is all about removing Gaddafi, then why not just drop a bomb on him and his regime and be done with it and it's not like Western governments haven't had the opportunity to do so. This is all just complete BS.


First Air strike against Libya


These elitest sub-human trash don't half like getting together to have their picture taken. Say, "Smile, More Blood".

Thing is, if this was an Oil War, then why not let gaddafi slap the rebls silly and go back to where we were in Febuary? We had the contracts already, why go in and go through the hassle of "regime change" when we already had what we wanted?

This whole "War for Oil" argument makes no sense!

This is good news. Gaddafi is a genocidal maniac. Of course its a loss for anti-semite/anti-zionist crowd.

What contracts? Well those contracts wouldn't mean shyt if the US didn't seek to support the rebels which may have decided to seek help from alqueida. if the U.S. twidled their thumbs and let a terrorist group assist the rebels and then cease control then those contracts wouldn't mean jack diddly squat now would they. I mean are they really his people if they wanted him dead?

Yes, when the rebels were winning a couple of weeks back. Remarks were made that if they won, they would scrutinise any oil deals and end any contracts which were unfavourable to Libya.

So this thread has turned into a debate about oil instead of a live update thread? Oh well, guess we'll all have to get our updates elsewhere.

I think the bigger question is what happens after the smoke clears and the bodies are buried.

Ya, looks about time to lift a finger doesn't it? Or is asking for you to do a google search too much? Btw, the last live update was on THIS VERY PAGE. Are people not allowed to have conversations anymore?

Did you just stick your hand into a barrel of words to put that post together. It made no sense.

Occult what now? You still think I am a Freemason, don't you?

The deal BP have to drill there, perhaps?

And where have you seen anything even remotely hinting at these rebels seeking help from"Al Qaeda"? I've only heard Gaddfi claim this and he is as mad as a hatter. I think you're just making stuff up, you know.

The US twiddled it's thumbs even right up until the French attacked Gaddafi's forces in Benghazi yesterday. They are a very reluctant partner. Your claims of a terrorist group (which barely exists by the way) helping tyhe rebls is nonsense.

Gaddafi has been killing his people for years. What about the prison ijn 1996 (I think) where he slaughtered over 1,000 political prisoners because they dared to protests against conditions there?

And rightly so, because I suspect that the deals are quite wonky, given the fact that Geddafi signed them. They probably line his pockets rather well. At the end of the day though, there are only a finite amount of Oil Companies in the world and someone has to drill.

Yep, because apparently this is another "US War for Oil". Of course, had we done nothing, those same people would be whinging about the West ignoring another Darfur. No win.

So you think everything was done and dusted & going to plan. Is that why they released the Lockerbie bomber and then fed the British people complete and utter BS. I'm not going to delude myself and claim l know the truth and I'm not saying you are either, but does anyone really know the truth. At the end of the day, we are all in the dark and we have nothing but the words of compulsive liars and we are constantly spoon fed propaganda by the media. The only thing we can go off is the actions of our governments and can you honestly tell me that they are the actions of a moral and just government.

The Bomber's release was part of the deal Blair did so BP could gain access to Libyan oil fields.

It was going quite well until this rebellion kicked off. And, even though some claim the rebels might renegotiate the contracts possibly making us lose out, we're still in there backing them up..

Kind of puts to bed the whole "War for Oil" argument in my book.

BBC News: Have your Say
Makes you wonder if we're doing the right thing by doing this :/

Someone made a comment I think matters. The civilians were protesters until they took up arms. Then they became rebels. At that point it wasn't protesting, it was civil war. That's internal. Libya didn't attack another country. Shouldn't that matter?

Assuming this is a civil war, might we make it worse by getting involved?

We're damned if we do and damned if we don't.

If we did nothing and allowed Gaddafi to win, slaughter those who opposed him then bought his Oil, we'd be propping up a dictator.

If we intervene and kick Gaddafi out, we're interfering, imperialist Oil-whores.

EDIT: To respond to your edit. the UN has intervened in most Civil Wars at some point to stop fighting, get people talking and bring about peace. This is the same. Korea was a Civil War, Bosnia was a Civil War, Kosovo was a Civil War. What's the difference here?

I strongly disagree with the whole "war for oil" argument! Most of what we see is small piece of a long term military strategy to gain more control. The sad truth is that if it wasn't America leading the path to world control, somebody else would be. From a military stand point russia and china still remain the enemy with the greatest threat. Some people need to come to understand that there is very few human beings in this world that can be in control of anything without abusing it for greed and personal gain as if its natural human instinct. The only way I can see there ever being peace in this world is for each and every individual to be truly equal to each other.
