Ted Rudow III, MA,Encina Ave,Palo Alto, CAWhile the battles rage in Libya, calls are growing on the international community to impose a no-fly zone to cripple Gaddafi's air force, the reality is “there's a lot of, frankly, loose talk about some of these military options, and let's just call a spade a spade. A no-fly zone begins with an attack on Libya to destroy the air defenses." (Secretary of Defense Robert Gates)It is not merely Libya's sweet crude oil the globalists are itching to get their hands on. In fact, physically capturing Libya's oil plays a minor role. They are interested in not only destabilising the entire Middle East, including the crown jewel Saudi Arabia, but also sending the world economy into a death spiral. $200 a barrel oil price will surely do more damage to the world economy than any other single event.
