DEMCAD: Libya is a Stepping Stone to World War 3!
By Reginald Kaigler (DEMCAD)
The United States' bombing campaign in Libya has absolutely nothing to do with helping the Libyan people. Just as the Bush and Cheney spread lies about Iraq, Obama and his underlings are using misinformation to manipulate the uninformed American masses into supporting another imperialist power grab for oil in the Middle East. For anyone who still has the delusion that the United States spent 600 million dollars in one week bombing and launching Tomahawk missiles into Libya for the sake of protecting innocent people, look at the U.S. operations and allies abroad.
In Gaza, America's prime ally, Israel, just started a new campaign of bombing civilian areas. Of course, innocent people where killed, but who cares? Israel is our friends. So what if they have one of the most brutal embargos in the world, it's not a big deal as long as you're a friend of the United States governemnt. And what about those unmanned predator drones dropping bombs on civilians in Afghanistan? Well, they don't count. No, really! They literally don't count in the eyes of the U.S. government.
Salon is reporting that the Department of Defense has recently confirmed that it does not gather statistics about the total number of civilians that have been killed by its unmanned drone attacks. And the only reason why we know this is because the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to acquire the information.
So why are we in Libya? Why did we go to Iraq? Why did we go to Afghanistan? What is the one significant variable that all three countries posses that countries like the Ivory Coast lacks? Oil. Invading Afghanistan allowed the Americans to control oil pipelines and create a strategy launchpad to Iran's east, while invading Iran allowed the Americans to control a significant amount of oil, prevent Saddam from threatening the U.S. Petro Dollar by selling oil in Euros. Libya has the largest oil reserves in Africa.
I think the United States government is backing the rebels because it wants to control the oil by controlling the rebels. After all, if the U.S. starts World War 3 by invading Iran, we're going to need plenty of oil (which we have in Alaska and the Dakotas) and the ability to prevent our enemies from acquiring oil.
What do you think? Is Libya a stepping stone to World War 3?
