It's About The Innocent Civilians - Bollox it is.

On 19/03/2011 Libyan National Oil Corp. chairman Shukri Ghanim said. "Libya may award contracts to China, India & other friendly nations http://in.reuters.com/article/2011/03/19/idINIndia-55716920110319

Immediately the UN at the behest of France & Britain become worried about the civilians that Gadaffi has been murdering & persecuting for years & they are In like Flynn with the old Air Strikes.

It has also been widely reported that Gadaffi said earlier this month, that Germany was the only Western power that had any chance of doing business with Libyan oil in the future. Guess which Western power opposed the Air Strikes & refused to have any part in them?

What's going on in Libya is not a peaceful protest, it is an armed uprising / civil war & while I have no time for Gadaffi I don't really have much care or interest in the other side here either, as the past has taught us, all that will happen is one Dictator will be replaced by another one, often a lot worse than the one he replaced.

If The UN & by that I mean Britain, France & America cared even a little bit about innocent civilians being shot and killed they would be focusing on Yemen & Bahrain where innocent unarmed protestors are being attacked & killed, right at this very moment, but as there is no oil, there is no interest.

The UN stood by and watched as Bahrain's rulers murdered unarmed protestors & then watched Saudi troops roll into town to help suppress the peaceful protests with even more force, but that's ok because the Saudi's have never funded terrorism or oppressed anyone & have always viewed as paramount the rights of their own citizens, just ask any of their modern leaning women or homosexuals.

Gadaffi & his Buddies


"Bertie me old friend, what can I do for you today?"
"Muammar I'm here to talk about live cattle exports & how we might line each others pockets."
"Ah Bertie I know all about live cattle, thats how I treat the people of Libya."
"Deadly, so we have a deal then?",
"That depends on whats in the briefcase Bertie?"
"Oh just a few bob, bit a sterling, a few euros & dollars, I like to mix it up, throws em off the scent so to speak,"
"Ah perfect Bertie, send the moo cows."
"Tell me Bertie how do you control the peasants with all this democracy nonsense?"
"That's the funny thing Muammar, the fools keep falling for the bollox I spout & they keep voting for me, that together with a few well timed & well placed Euro referendums, soon enough they'll wake up poor & beholden to Brussels & Strasbourg, then they'll have no choice but to do what they are told & I'll get a little rewardie, deadly all round."
"Seems like a lot of bother to me Bertie, you should just shoot anyone who opposes you or complains about what you are doing, like we do, works out well for us."
"That would be great Muammar, but the EU would never let me shoot them."
"They would if you had OIL Bertie, they would if you had OIL!"

They were all at it, http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2011/feb/07/labour-government-lockerbie-bomber-release   I particularly like "During 2007, the Libyans repeatedly delayed signing the BP oil deal until the UK government signed a prisoner transfer agreement (PTA) which included Megrahi."

Somewhere in 2007

"Do we have a deal then? We release Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi & you grant the contracts to BP, win win eh Muammar?"
"No problem Gordie my friend, send us Megrahi & a big bag of cash & BP get the contracts, as me good friend Bertie would say Deadly all round."
"Right so, we'll get on to the Scots & tell 'em he's terminal or something & you get the old contracts ready for the BP men, Oh I trust we have your word that there will be no mad celebrations when Megrahi get's back, it wouldn't look good on the old TV you know."
"No problem Gordie, we'll bring him in at night & straight home, no celebrations or triumphal processions on live TV, rest assured."
"Thanks Muammar, you know it makes sense."
"British Satan Wanker!"

Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi returns home a "Hero".
