Libyan TurmOIL (Back to business).

Libyan military operations are still in swing of course, and civilian casualties mounting more and more. Just recently, NATO launched another rocket, however when it hit, it destroyed a building with people and children inside. Adults and children both dead, has caused more bad blood as NATO says this was a weapons malfunction. However this is not the first 'malfunction' as it is one of three that NATO openly admitted. Looking at statistics, when Qaddafi was suppressing rebel uprisings, less people were killed in those events, than the people killed with the help of NATO's military intervention. Ironically, the policy by which NATO goes by in Libya is that they want to defend civilian lives at all costs, while at the same time helping the rebels who's intentions (other than removing Qaddafi from the head of state) are quite unclear, and some even claimed them of being linked with terrorist organizations. Many people are blaming the intervening countries in Libya as just being in it for oil and profits. I see this as somewhat true, because after the mass destruction of Libyan cities and infrastructure, I can see large loans being given out to the new Libyan government to reconstruct everything, while paying back with oil for cheap prices, or even letting the USA set up a military base there 'just to help with stability'. My own views on the war was that if Qaddafi is to step down, it should have been slowly, and gradual, as long as no fighting was to occur. And, also see who it is that will take over his place and rule to the post-revolutionary Libyan state.

  1. Qaddafi will not step down. He already did so with words. He plans to die there and since America and the UK have pledged to remove him it means that likely we will have troops on the ground or run some sort of takeout mission. Mark my words, USA and/or UK WILL have troops on the ground in Libya. Just watch.

  3. It's just crazy. You would think that in these technological days we would be able to avoid things like this but it almost seems that they are intentional.
