I know they THINK they have the future planned, but there is an element they cannot control.
And that is the universe.
They may think they are the powerful ones, but they are not.

Hague is the original Tory boy. Whats is his background, the forces. No he is a career politician.
His party is in power because it is being bolstered by the libs. Not a majority vote.
I see Hague going for the thatcher effect who also was struggling until the Fawklands war. Cameron thinks he is now a world leader instead of just another knob.
Here is another war. Again without an end game that will grow far beyond its remit and will become another sink hole for the lives of our young.
The same young that they tell us are not as hard working or as educated as foriegn workers but it seems are very capable of being sent out to kill them.
As i have stated previously, in my current job (construction) we have extensive and on going works in Libya (mainly Benghazi area but also Tripoli) and can attest to western support by local libyan people. They are happy we are helping.
Summary: U.S. project management company AECOM, which already has a large American expatriate presence and a large role in running housing and infastructure projects, recently signed a contract for a joint venture (JV) with Libya's Housing and Infrastructure Board (HIB). The new JV would allow several thousand HIB employees to leave the employ of the GOL and enter the private sector; it would also prompt a sizeable increase in the number of expatriate Americans working in Libya under AECOM's auspices. The JV would initially focus on projects in Libya; however, the long-term goal is to implement projects throughout the African continent under a Libyan banner.
