So how does bombing Libyan civilians save them?!

Excerpts of an article by a former U.S. Intelligence Asset who covered Iraq, Libya, Yemen and Syria/Hezbollah from 1993 to 2003:

The United States, Britain and NATO don’t care about civilians being bombed. They have destroyed most of the community infrastructure of Iraq and Afghanistan before turning their sights on Libya. So what’s really going on there?

Don’t kid yourself. This is an oil war, and it smacks of imperialist double standards. There is simply no justification for U.S. or NATO action against Libya. The U.N. charter acknowledges the rights of sovereign nations to put down rebellions against their own governments.

US oil giants— Chevron and Occidental Petroleum— made a surprising decision to pull out of Libya. Gadhaffi had bided his time until he could extort compensation from U.S. and British oil companies. He’s a crafty bastard, extremely intelligent and canny. That’s exactly how he operates. And now he was taking his revenge. As expected, the U.S. was hopping mad about it.

More than likely, Libya’s demands for kick backs and compensation extended to other European oil conglomerates as well—particularly France and Italy—who are now spearheading attacks on Libya.

Hundreds of US, British and French military advisers arrived in Cyrenaica, Libya’s eastern “breakaway province” on February 23 and 24— seven (7) days after the start of Gadhaffi’s domestic rebellion. The advisers, including intelligence officers, were dropped from warships and missile boats at the coastal towns of Benghazi and Tobruk.

We’re supposed to believe the United States, Britain and Europe planned, coordinated and executed a full military intervention in 7 short days! That’s strategically impossible.

Nothing can persuade me that Gadhaffi’s fate wasn’t decided months ago, when Chevron and Occidental Petroleum took their whining to Capitol Hill.

  1. The leading church official in Libya said, at least 40 Libyan civilians have been killed as a consequence of airstrikes carried out by the United States and other Western powers.

    “The so-called humanitarian raids have caused dozens of victims among civilians in some areas of Tripoli,” the Libyan capital, Bishop Giovanni Innocenzo Martinelli, the apostolic vicar of Tripoli, told the Vatican’s missionary news agency Fides March 31.

    “I gathered testimony from trustworthy people. In particular, in the neighborhood of Buslim, the bombardments caused the collapse of a civilian residence building, resulting in the deaths of 40 people,” Bishop Martinelli said.

  2. […] The message is simple: Challenge the oil corporations and your government and your people will pay the ultimate price. […]
