Another war for oil
This is an illegal war. The United States and other NATO powers are
dropping massive bombs and missiles in an effort to carry out regime
change in the country that possesses the largest oil reserves in
Africa and the ninth largest in the world.
The people of the United States oppose the bombing of Libya by a
2-to-1 margin. But we must act now to show this opposition
At the moment, the government tells us the country is so broke that
tens of thousands of teachers and nurses have to be fired, yet there
is again limitless funds for another war.
The civil war that commenced in February in Libya provided a perfect
pretext for the United States, Britain and France to use overwhelming
military power to overthrow the government. Their goal is not more
democracy and freedom, or to "protect civilians." These
powers have predatory commercial and military interests in the region
that contains two thirds of the world's known oil reserves.
Humanitarian intervention is just an empty slogan masking the imperial
character of the war.
Civilians are being killed by the U.S./NATO bombing. The
country's infrastructure is being destroyed and will undoubtedly
be source of lucrative reconstruction contracts for Halliburton,
Exxon/Mobil, and other western corporations and banks.
