Unknown to most of the world, the long-planned campaign against Libya is based on a more fundamental strategic concern.

From the Berlin Conference of 1884 to the London Conference of 2011   The leaders of 14 capitalist powers in Europe plus the United States met for a conference in Berlin 126 years ago to decide how all of Africa’s land and vast resources would be divided as colonies and zones of control among themselves.

It seems that Libya’s situation reversed in one night. At first, U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates publicly claimed on 27th that the United States was against “regime change” in Libya.

The false narrative they conjured up was that their military action was for the protection of unarmed civilians who were peacefully protesting for their rights. What is happening in Libya, however, is an armed insurrection against the government.
