    Trying to guide or direct the outcome of a revolution serves what purpose?
    it serves the purpose of giving the world back to the people instead of the oil companys.

    Nope.

    Eastern Libya has been a big supplier of foreign fighters in Iraq and Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood are rebel participants to a varied degree. Also, the Muslim Brotherhood presence is much larger than AQ and like Egypt, are probably the largest organized group. This is going to benefit us how?

    The rundown or outcome is simple - The world economy and the money game will get interesting when Abdul the Jihadi controls the bulk of the oil supply in the ME.

    It's the Caliphate - coming soon to an overthrown oppressive Arab regime near you. "Allah will provide"

    There is nothing wrong with oil companies buying oil from Libya if the money actually goes to address the needs of the Libyan people. Oil money in the ME has helped increase the standard of living for many people. It has also helped fuel (pun intended) jihadis and that point should not be overlooked. It's also making lots of despotic tyrants like Gaddafi very rich men.

    It would be better if the US aggressively produced our own oil to be sold to legitimate public or private companies on the open market. Refining oil into dozens of products is not evil and neither are the companies and people who profit from that industry.

    yes

    you could also add yemen at the mouth of hormuz, bahrain on the border of arabia, jordan over the river from israel...

    meanwhile, today:

    Gulf Arab monarchies including Saudi Arabia denounced Iran”s “flagrant interference” in regional affairs and said Tehran was destabilising their countries, at a ministerial meeting overnight Saturday. Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) foreign ministers said in a statement they were “deeply worried about continuing Iranian meddling” in their region. In addition to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Kuwait, the GCC groups include Oman, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.
    Gulf states denounce Iran”s meddling |

    meanwhile, obama's stuck for a nice round of NATION BUILDING in LIBYA

    which, according to the president, will last "days, not weeks"

    that is, IF he succeeds in what he has succinctly stated is NOT the purpose of his nato/us mission, the removal of khadafi

    for all we know, as a matter of fact, obama is still trying to arrange that diplomatic powwow with the leaders of iran---without preconditions

    he's never renounced it, after all

    he doesn't know what he's doing

    worry

    today, at the straits

    Police and armed men in civilian clothes opened fire on anti-government demonstrators in the Yemeni cities of Taiz and Hudaida on Monday, witnesses said, as a drive to oust President Ali Abdullah Saleh gathered pace.

    it is when we put our young men and women's lives on the line for it. hey if exxon wants to protect IT'S intrests then it should hire mercinaries to do so and leave our soldiers to do the job they are there for which is defending this country from invaders foreign and domestic.

    Yes, of course. All about oil.

    When do we start getting that free Iraqi oil?

    I remember Rush Limbaugh once saying we would thank Bush once that cheaper oil started coming in. That Limbaugh is certainly a silly ass liberal!!!


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You'll have to explain to me how it is we went into Iraq for their oil and now we're profiting from it.

    Where are, we getting the cheap gas made from looted Iraqi oil?
