I can smell the oil,gas, and money, that this bombing campaign is all about. Also the French & UK leaders want to look like 'war leaders' doing good. So that they an get a bump in the polls. Sakozy has an election pretty soon. Both leaders are trying to out do each other. Pathetic.
Quote:Libya, a member of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), holds the largest proven oil reserves in Africa. According to the 2008 BP Statistical Energy Survey, Libya had proved oil reserves of 41.464 billion barrels at the end of 2007 or 3.34 % of the world's reserves.
Oil exploration in Libya began in 1955, with the key national Petroleum Law No. 25 enacted in April of that year (a new petroleum law is currently under development). Libya's first oil fields were discovered in 1959 (at Amal and Zelten -- now known as Nasser), and oil exports began in 1961.
Libya is Africaâ€™s major oil producer and one of Europeâ€™s biggest North African oil suppliers. Supplies from North Africa to Europe destinations have the advantage of being both timely and cost effective. According to the 2008 BP Statistical Energy Survey, Libya produced an average of 1847.7 thousand barrels of crude oil per day in 2007, 2.2% of the world total and a change of 0.5 % compared to 2006. Libyaâ€™s economy is based on oil and exports contribute between 75% and 90% of State revenues.
Meanwhile Bahraini people are invaded by other GCC countries lead by the Saudi's. Yet nothing is done. No words of warning. They just run riot. Before anyone says they were invited, not by the majority. But by the Minority Sunni lead Monarchy.
Not saying the shia are any better. But violence begets violence. The Majority population want a voice that is linked to their size. fair enough to me. Oh and The US has a massive navy base in Bahrain, maybe thats why they don't say anything.

They all whip it out at election time so we plebes can marvel at the power. elite pansie games.
Quote:LIBYAN rebels acknowledged that a warplane which crashed in flames in their Benghazi stronghold early yesterday belonged to them and that it was shot down by Muammar Gaddafi's forces.
"Yes, it was one of the insurgents' planes. It was downed by Gaddafi's forces," a senior rebel official told AFP, reached by telephone.
"From what I hear the pilot is dead but I cannot confirm that," he said, adding that the plane was a French-built Mirage fighter.
"We have a few planes but they are old planes," he added.

Now who the hell are these 'rebels' and where do they get jet fighters? Senior rebel official :chcukle:
If anything a psychological blow for the protesters.
Some interesting factoids about Bahrain
Quote:The current ASU bears little resemblance to the small, 10-acre compound it was as recently as 1991. In the past seven years, this "sleepy hollow" has expanded to 62 acres with $36.5 million worth of new construction underway, including new transient bachelor quarters, a medical and dental clinic, a racquetball court, a chapel, a post office and several multi-purpose sports fields.
Juffair is the boomtown of the Bahraini capital. Across the flat, dusty plain outside Naval Support Activity Bahrain, a jungle of glass and concrete has sprouted. Newly paved roads crisscross in an expanding checkerboard between the base and the bay. Armies of construction workers swarm over half-finished apartments, restaurants and hotels as the white sun bakes the desert. Some of them sleep in the open shells at night.
Prospective owners of hotels and apartments cultivate Navy leaders, hoping for a piece of the military pie. For security reasons, the US government places strict limits on the number of Americans who may stay in each hotel or apartment. For hotels, the limit is 25 percent of guests, and for apartments the limit is 50 percent of tenants. That means building owners must get non-Navy clients to fill up the rest of their space. As fortune would have it, the Navyâ€™s expansion coincided with Manamaâ€™s rise as the hub of Middle East commerce.
Today, 178 banks have branches here, al-Absi said â€” a vast number for a country of just 645,000 people. Dozens of firms, like Coca Cola and Chevron, have located regional offices here to take advantage of the friendly, tolerant business climate. It also is a rare country in the Middle East that permits companies to be 100 percent foreign-owned. It aspires to fill the Arab niche once occupied by Lebanon before the bloody civil war of the 1970s and 1980s. Like the Navy, these companies pay the living costs of employees who move to Bahrain. As a result, expatriates from Great Britain, India, Pakistan, Australia and Saudi Arabia have filled up the apartments and hotels of Juffair. Foreigners now make up about one-third of Bahrainâ€™s population, and they dominate in Manama.
The local population lives a little bit out of town â€” what in American terms would be called the suburbs. A great percentage of the people of Manama are not Bahrainis. They donâ€™t want to drive 25 minutes to go out and get a drink.
Says it all.
MSM conditions the public in the West.
While not in so many words, the implications are the West are already recognizing a new government.
The reality here is, there is already a recognized internal hierarchy, and the US, UK, et al. are not demonizing it, so it can be implied they are already to some degree recognizing it's legitimacy, if not directly behind all of this toppling of governments.
Don't tell me this hasn't been on the table for a number of years. It just took a good distraction to make all this happen without much public scrutiny. Japan provides the perfect storm.
Never let a good crisis go to waste.
and every once in a while, i have to deal with the Knowledge of paying taxes for years
to fund black-ops and Psy-Ops wherein "I" was the target.
Not just myself, not just my Sister being Murdered by agents of the U.S. and My Dad and his Friend being Murdered.

Then, sit back and watch as people order their,,, "TALL NON-FAT VANILLA LATTE WITH A TWIST AND A PINEAPPLE SLICE WITH SOY MILK WHIPPED CREAM AND AN ORGANIC BANANA ON TOP"
RAGE!!! is what they should have on order.
But hey, a person cannot enjoy a Latte as well when enraged,,,, now can they?
With me, at least on all but one unexplainable occasion they never made anything personal, but the waste, the fraud, the greed, the whole creation of money through debt the black projects, the wars.
It's a disturbing beast we've all financed.
there was a Photo i received from Iraq
i know a few special forces personnel
The photo displayed an Oil Tanker Trailer with the back of the tank cut out with a torch,
stacked inside the tanker, were the gold bars from the Iraqi Treasury.
Off loading the Gold Bars by hand, were special forces troops of the U.S.
The Soldiers were stacking the bars on pallets to be loaded onto U.S. Aircraft for transport out
The missive went something like this:
Rog', were your Bars anything like these in shape and size?
This operation, is mine."
Then a short missive on the who what when where and how of the operation.
I later, from this person, received a gift of a handgun taken away from one of Sadamn's
head men, it was a gift to that friend of Sadamn's, from Sadamn, back in 1972.
Ahhhhh,,, the spoils of war.
