The Obama Administration is insisting today that it is moving toward a ‘support role’ in the Libyan War, not long after NATO assumed formal command of the conflict. The pledge comes as Congressmen are expressing increasing disquiet about the war.
Officials say they are moving warships and warplanes to “standby” mode, and will soon pull the Tomahawk missiles entirely out of the conflict. The standdown will take effect as of Sunday.
The idea appears to be leaving the French and British carrying much of the combat load, and to try to put as much public distance as possible between the NATO-led, nominally UN mandated war and the US.
Which of course, ignores that US dominance of both NATO and the UN Security Council. There is likely some political value in the pretense of the US “supporting” an international war in Libya instead of leading an unpopular war that was started largely at the Obama Administration’s behest, but the reality is that no matter who is dropping the bombs, it is America’s war, and US officials will be calling the shots.

1- What they are going to support is for a Islamic Libya to be established in Eastern Libya ., look we said that from the beginning that this war is Obamas war and is about to divide Libya where US, British, French, Dutch and Norwegian Oil companies can profit from.., it is not about Muammar Kaddafi nor democracy.., is a deal that Hillary Clinton, Gates and Obama been making with Saudis Tyrant and Arab Emirates and Kuwaitis Kingdome family.., they are using Muslims to divide Libya where these tyrants would benefit from.., at the same time they are using Muslims to open a corridor to African Continent via Islamic Libya for US militarism regime feature invasions..,
2- Ask yourself this question.., why Obama is not releasing the Oil reserve to stop the high price of gasoline.., Oil companies don’t want that to happen and Obama, Saudis and the rest are for it.
When they can.., if they could.., to get the Oil for almost free from starting a unjust war why would they release the reserve Oil which would reduce the price of Oil and gasoline in US and Europe…, there is more profit from higher Oil and gasoline price then lower Oil price.., and is about to go higher due to the fact that Libyan war will take sometimes if not longer.., unless US – NATO start their ruthless bombardment of Libya as they did to Yugoslavia and Iraq.
