There Will Be Blood For Oil

Libya has been fighting a civil war for a couple of weeks now. In the process the oil production from the country has been partially interrupted and fears of a total stoppage had to exist.  So the U.N. got together and decided that not only will there be a No Fly Zone but also authorized military strikes on the Libyan government's army.

Obviously Col Gaddafi learned the lessons of Gulf War I and Gulf War II. He immediately declared a cease fire.  That makes him smarter than Saddam Hussein was.

Of course Libya is interesting to the world because it produces about 1.5 million barrels of oil per day.  Of course 7 years ago, when up to 1,000 people were dying each a day in the Congo, we couldn't be bothered to raise our gun hand. Then again, the Congo only produces a couple hundred thousand barrels of oil each day.
