  •  And you completely whiffed on French/UK profits. (1+ / 0-)

    The way the United States is handling this situation will mean smaller profits for our oil companies from Libyan oil, because the soon-to-be-established democratic government will be more favorable to French and other European countries than to us.  They took the political lead in making this humanitarian action happen, and they account for the vast majority of the action.

    But our actions are all about profits for oil companies.  Uh huh.  Sure it is, just like Human Rights Watch is just putting out propaganda for imperialism and oil interests.

    Why, they must be, or else you wouldn't be able to denounce us as the bad guys.

    Art is the handmaid of human good.
