Gaddafi's fall will reopen the doors to Africa's largest oil reserves and give new players such as Qatar's national oil company and trading house Vitol the chance to compete with established European and U.S. oil majors.





"We don't have a problem with Western countries like the Italians, French and UK companies. But we may have some political issues with Russia, China and Brazil," Abdeljalil Mayouf, information manager at Libyan rebel oil firm AGOCO, told Reuters.


So not about Oil eh? With the rebels in power, Russia,China will no longer have any routes to the Libyan Oil Supplies, Its no wonder from the day one why Qatar and al jazeera were with the rebels, and support them, it was all about the oil,


Was this a surpise to anyone here?




We don't have a problem with Western countries like the Italians,


Isnt that something eh?

No surprise there, but most of the "dumb sheep" will still believe the reason was bringing freedom and democracy.

At the rate NATO is overthrowing "corrupt" governments in foreign countries with Syria next on the line, I fear what Russia and China will do in the future. So far they've just sat back and watched events play out even though they have heavily criticised NATO's interference in foreign countries.

Its funny how oil is involved every time a country is "liberated".

What about all the atrocities commited in Africa that no one cares about because theres no resources to steal?

Libya gateway to Africa?

So this could end up befitting the whole continent of Africa. With the west gaining a foot hold in Libya, maybe down the road it could lead to actions that could save millions of lives and freedom from despots and guerrilla leaders.

Actually, during the opening phases of the NATO operation, French President Sarkozy did mention that it had a lot to do with oil and Europes dependance on it.

So that cat was out of the bag right at the beginning.
