We Knew it Was Just a Matter of Time. Libya Open for Business!

It didn't take long for the vultures to swoop down on Libya. News that Washington's largest lobbying group, Patton Boggs, has been hired to sell the rebel army as the new government of the oil rich country, should come as no surprise. The firm has been behind international trade deals for decades, and has obviously found a willing trade partner.

And Halliburton has already been hovering over Libya.
"We hope Iraq will be the first domino and that Libya and Iran will follow. We don't like being kept out of markets because it gives our competitors an unfair advantage," John Gibson, chief executive of Halliburton's Energy Service Group ("Halliburton Eager for Work Across the Mideast," International Oil Daily, May 7, 2003)
And now that the Harper Doctrine has replaced the Bush Doctrine, those vultures are ready to land.

Of course, they will claim that they are just doing God's work. Hallelujah!
"I am going to put an end to all that is holy and fill the world with violence, so that Neocons can extract the oil from the bowels of the earth. Thou must be clear minded and self-controlled, while thou bombeth the crap out of everything so that the profits of disciples, Halliburton and SNC Lavelin, can flow with the crude down the river of greed. So sayeth the lord of free markets" - Their god
