West vs. China: A New Cold War Begins On Libyan Soil

The question as to why US-led NATO forces are determined to engineer a regime change in Libya is now becoming clear. Whilst media pundits and political experts still argue over whether the Libyan rebel gangs are actually being backed and directed by US, UK and Israel intelligence agencies, broader long-range Western policy objectives for Libya are being completely ignored.

One only has to read the strategic briefings in U.S. AFRICOM documents to realise the true endgame in Libya: the control of valuable resources and the eviction of China from North Africa.

When the US formed AFRICOM in 2007, some 49 countries signed on to the US military charter for Africa but one country refused: Libya. Such a treacherous act by Libya’s leader Moummar Qaddafi would only sow the seeds for a future conflict down the road in 2011.

NATO: It’s been reduced to a mere private security force for western corporate interests.

According to Dr Paul Craig Roberts, the situation with Qaddafi is much different than the other recent protests in the Arab world. “Why is NATO there?” has become to real question, says Roberts, who fears that risky involvement stemming from American influence could lead to catastrophic breaking point in Libya.

Long winded article, but informative to say the least.....answers questions that we all deduced a while back.

Hey, I want to know why BP is drilling in the Gulf of Mexico again, after all that hullabaloo a year ago.

Oh, yeah. That's because Petrobras, China, Cuba, Spain and just about everyone else is drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.

So, if America can't drill in the nearby Gulf of Mexico.........we go drilling in Libya? Yeah, that's the ticket. We're still dependent on foreign oil.

Oddly enough BP did a huge offshore oil deal with Libya just monthsd before the war.
They even chivied the UK gov to hand over the last lockerbie bomber back to quadaffi.
I wonder if they had a hand in the coup thats now sputtering along there.
UK was hot to trot on the Libya no fly zone, and is there just a hackin and hewing right now, with sbs , sas troopies and planes.

the Lockerbie bomber was a huge frame up
magrhi was released to prevent the truth coming out at appeal
the Libyans paid big in sanctions for that

General Wes Clark never said anything about China when he said the US was going to do this several years ago...

the chinese can afford to compete
the US and the West cannot

there is so much capped oil on US mainland ....
but the bankers must make the utmost out of it...
not for the benfit of the peeps
that would just be wrong on so many levels
