West Sees Opportunity in Postwar Libya for BusinessesSubmitted by wafflehutguy on Sat, 10/29/2011 - 10:25
The guns in Libya have barely quieted, and NATO’s military assistance to the rebellion that toppled Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi will not end officially until Monday. But a new invasion force is already plotting its own landing on the shores of Tripoli.
When Colonel Qaddafi’s body was still on public display, a British venture, Trango Special Projects, pitched its support services to companies looking to cash in. “Whilst speculation continues regarding Qaddafi’s killing,” Trango said on its Web site, “are you and your business ready to return to Libya?”
Major General Smedley Butler, USMC was right when he wrote that War is a Racket and that he was no more than a bouncer for the banks. As a former officer in the Canadian Air Force, I feel shame and disgust reading this.
