“Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some small crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business.”
Obama's Jonah Goldberg War
Isn't it remarkable how long they had to wait build up a critical mass of propaganda - Colin Powell's Yellow Cake / Tony Blair's 45 minutes INCOMING! - to fight a war against Iraq. The Libyan war has sneaked up almost unnoticed... express delivery. Like most things, I suppose invading relatively defenseless countries with the world's most powerful militaries to steal their resources gets easier with practice.
Why are we there?
As we know the globalists want Libya's oil and gas, whether they'll take it all or just half and let Gadaffi keep the Tripoli half (two dictators better than one) I don't know. Here's the obligatory map.
However, some of those who realise this obvious fact believe that there is another good reason for contaminating Libya with uranium depleted ordnance: Gadaffi is holding the European Union hostage by threatening to release an immigration flood. We must invade Libya, to stop immigration!
The real story about Libyan immigration is of course not that they're on the verge of coming over here because of anything the Arab-Berber dictator Gadaffi is doing, nasty as he is. Libya's 1 million black African immigrants come from African Union (they have one too) and Gadaffi deliberately imported them to expand his support base outside his tribe. He doesn't want them to leave.
Libya and Gadaffi has been a central player in expanding the African Union, which has been an alliance vehicle for the projection of Gadaffi's influence after pan-Arabism failed to do anything exciting, like win a war against Israel.
The immigrant exodus is more likely to occur if the rebels successfully take the Western half of Libya, as they recently tried to do on their own.
This manufactured "humanitarian disaster" may of course be stopped with the intervention of foreign troops, which must be considered a given now - Egypt's new globalist military dictatorship looks ripe for that.
So the rebels are Libya's BNP, with added hot-headedness. Put that in your Guardian column and ruminate on it.
