We already bombed the hell out of Lybia with a billion dollars worth of cruise missiles.
Because Quadifi was suggesting a new African currency backed by gold. It probably would have given competition to the Euro and U.S. dollar.
Which would have upset World central bankers like the Federal Reserve, Bank of England and European Central Bank.
So the U.S. suddenly claimed Quadifi a bad guy (After giving him billions over the years) and helped the rebels defeat him.
But the lying U.S. officials and press would not tell us the real reason. AND - Obomba never even as much as consulted with congress before beginning the bombing.
This same thing happened in Iraq when in October of 2001, Saddam Hussein claimed he would no longer trade its oil for U.S dollars (AKA Petro-Dollars) but instead would accept only Euros or gold.
Conveniently, within 11 months 9/11 happened and the bankers had their excuse to attack Iraq.
Immediately after Baghdad fell, Iraqi oil once again traded exclusively in U.S. dollars.
Apparently this country has not learned a thing about government involvement in foreign affairs or Americans would be screaming about this latest little incursion into foreign lands.
EVERY American should read "The Creaature From Jekyll Island."
"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
