You only just worked this out? It was obvious before it all started what it was about, that and the fact that Libya has refused a central bank and was
discussing the paying for oil in gold rather than dollars
War is always about money and power, the same as it was with Iraq and Afghanistan, the same as it will be with Syria, Pakistan and Iran
Exactly, and a smaller reason some people don't realize is that he just completed the manmade water system that will(or would of anyway) provide the
people of Libya with free water for 50,000 years and it would of turned the desert sands into a fertile farmland. He said in a speach after it's
completion that Libya would be twice as likely to be attacked from the United States. The people of Libya had it very good. Universal healthcare(if a
libyan is injured overseas the government pays for it) free education including college and university(government will pay for it's citizens to study
overseas), no taxes on food, subsidzed housing, interest free house loans, libyans wanting to open up a business received a one time payment on
$20,000 that they didn't have to pay back! Not to mention the cash incentives for getting married and having a child. The people directly profited
from the Oil trade. The rebels have already sold over a million barrels of oil stolen from the government and the people of Libya. They have a central
bank already and had NATO weapons from day 1. Weapons that the Libyan army didn't have and they were all brand new. Look at all the videos of the
We know Ghaddafi has been fighting muslim extremists for over two decades. Long before the war on terror. Eastern Libya, where the rebel stronghold
is, is a breedng ground for terrorists. More foreign fighters came from Libya(huge majority from eastern libya) to fight in Iraq against NATO per
capita than any other country. Not to mention how we heard from the beginning that the rebels were outnumbered 10 to 1 compared to the Libyan army.
Well they only have around 50,000 troops, so were being told that a group of roughly 5k is a popular uprising in a country of about 6.5 million.
You can also search, "Libyan rebels wage genocide on black workers," and see which side is really the one attacking innocent civillians. These rebels
have been capturing black migrant workers who they suspect as Ghaddafi mercenaries and stabbing them to death and then beheading them in public. Who
in their right mind believes these people to be a bunch of oppressed civilians who are fed up with a dictator. Don't most dictators, at least the ones
that I can think of, spend lots of money on their military and none on their people? Another interesting aspect in this is Ghadaffi and the Libyan
government sponsored Sarkozy in the French election. He turned his back on them after he won and they have been at odds ever since.
It disgusts me that my country has a part in this. Harper is going to ruin this country but that's for a different thread. It's obvious that the only
reason this is going on is because Ghaddafi was attempting to start a gold backed dinar and wanted to have all African countries and some Arab one's
to join. That mixed with the oil and water reserves and the fact they are one of a few countries to not have a central bank(theirs is currently 100%
state owned) makes Libya a prime target.Qatar is a major player in this scheme as well and they do a good job of selling it through Al Jazeera. It's a
good news source but it is biased when it comes to the Libyan situation. Qatar was the country that sold the oil for the rebels and was the first to
recognize them. They are trying to be a big player in this. I guess we will see what happens as I thought Ghaddafi would of defeated them a while ago.
Of course the airstrikes are the difference maker but it does appear as though this will go on for some time. Hopefully it turns out good for the real
people of Libya, because they will be the one's who will suffer the most.
