    Indeed, motivations are mixed in these matters. What you see, in my view, is that the emergent Imperial (and this is not a strictly U.S. system) needs to integrate all societies particularly the critical oil-producing states and regions under at least indirect rule of the emergent ruling elites (dominated by the finance oligarchs).

    If an opportunity exists where "humanitarian" concerns can be used as a cover for imperial outreach (which may actually benefit the people) then go for it. Lybia is such a case.

    We'll see how the current coalition does and what degree of slaughter we will see.
