Nigeria is under terrorist attack and preparing military operations against a group called Boko Haram, an Islamic group from the North, more accurately centered in Niger.

Who are we kidding? The United States, Britain and NATO don't care about bombing civilians to contain rebellion. Their militaries bomb civilians every day without mercy. They have destroyed most of the community infrastructure of Iraq and Afghanistan before turning their sights on Libya. So what's really going on here?
Libya with its huge reserve and flow of vital oil to Europe & the United States could not and should not be left alone in the hands of some maniac and political outcast like Gaddafi to be drifted into some civil war that only god knows when it will come to an end. This is unacceptable under any circumstances, be it a popular uprising or not so popular, the crucial thing is that this no-fly zone must stop this no-flow of oil from Libya to Europe and USA, a situation that if kept going could drag a newly recovered western economy back to recession.
Some Libyan rebels have called for a no-fly zone, but until now - and this may change - the mood of the Libyan uprising is that this is their fight and their fight alone.
Eight years ago I accepted the 9/11 myth without reservation, and tried to reactivate my commission to join what I then believed was a just war against Iraq. Like most patriotic veterans, I was blinded by love for my country, which I had served in the 70s, 80s and 90s as a member of the Army, Army Reserve and National Guard.
The struggle for control over oil resources is one of the most dominate factors in economic history. A timeline of the oil robber barons is compelling, especially when viewed from the perspective of muckraking Ida Tarbell. In the History of The Standard Oil Company, Tarbell influenced public opinion and provided pressure for government regulation of the oil monopoly. Martha R. Gore writes in The "Joan of Arc" of the Oil Regions Who Exposed Standard Oil, "In November 1906, the federal government took Standard Oil to court, charging it with obstructing interstate trade, a violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890. The result was the breakup of Standard Oil and the end of its power to destroy its competition and control of the American oil market".

The oil spill that began when one of oil giant "BP's" offshore oil rigs exploded and sank in the Gulf of Mexico last week was initially reported as leaking at the rate of 1000 barrels per day. Last night the Coast Guard upped the estimated leak rate to 5000 barrels per day. I assume that they are talking about the typical 42 gallon "barrel" the standard measurement for the toxic fluid now gushing from a pipe drilled in a hole in the sea floor. If so, that's 210,000 gallons of toxic, flammable, carcinogenic, fish, fowl and coral killing sludge every day.
A few days ago, the oil gushing out of the ruins of the Deepwater Horizon was termed "manageable." By Monday, "manageable" had evolved into 42,000 gallons of oil a day gushing unabated from the wellhead beneath the sunken rig off the coast of Louisiana. The sheen on the Gulf of Mexico had spread across 1,800 square miles of water. Seven skimming boats attempting to mop up the oil began to look overwhelmed.
