de facto neo-colonialism & oil addiction. Just like a herion addict, USA will do anything, give up everything, (our values), and destroy or use whatever is in the way to satisfy the all consuming craving.
Do you think that the latest quagmire brewing in Libya was an R2P?
Responsiblity to Protect Libyians? Hardly. The CIA turned over the rebel hero Belhadj who took Tripoli to be tortured. Then Qaddafi's son Al-Islam who was arrested in Tripoli and let go was the same guy who had Belhadj released years before.
Tit-4 tat, returning the favor?
Or will we see that sck fck Al-Islam who is wanted for crimes against humanity be a future 'partner' with the US in less than a decade?
