New leaders may expel Russia and China
from Libyan energy sector

CAIRO — Libyan rebels are preparing to restructure the nation's energy sector and expel allies of ousted Col. Moammar Gadhafi.


The rebel National Transitional Council was mulling plans to replace Chinese and Russian contractors in Libya's energy sector. Council sources said Beijing and Moscow were deemed the last major supporters of the Gadhafi regime and supplied weapons and expertise to fight the rebels.

"There are several countries who will have to answer for the help they gave to Gadhafi in killing thousands of people," a council source said.

Abdul Jalil Mayouf, information manager at the Libyan rebel energy company, AGOCO, agreed. Mayouf said Brazil, China and Russia could face sanctions by any post-Gadhafi regime in Libya, Middle East Newsline reported.

In contrast, NATO members and their energy companies have helped the rebels over the last six months. They were said to include such companies as British Petroleum, France's Total and Italy's Eni, most of which recorded sharp gains on their shares since the downfall of the Gadhafi regime on Aug. 22.

Eni has already sent a team to Libya to plan the resumption of crude oil production in the east. Officials said significant Libyan oil and natural gas operations could resume by December.

"The facilities had been made by Italians, by Saipem," Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said. "And therefore it is clear that Eni will play a No. 1 role in the future."


Tripoli's new rebel military chief is Abdel Hakim Belhaj, the leader of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group. This Group had 2 training camps in Afghanistan and was responsible for the influx of Libyan fighters to fghanistan and Iraq.

Evidently it was why the Western country have arranged this adventure.

This has always been about stealing Libyan oil. The very thing liberals always accused Bush43 of falsely on Iraq, is exactly what Obama has done in Sudan and Libya, with Egypt as the magic military wand to bash right wing Jews out of the Israeli state and protect central European rapine. This is all about the Neo Roman Empire. The question none of the whiz kids on the right have figured out is, "What happens when China and Russia, having been bribed with no military weapons for Taiwan and all of eastern Europe, decide they do not like Obama and the cartel screwing them over?" Obama is removing the Muslim despot for the Islamic organized communist community to exploit the new Muslim sheep. This is the new feudal colonialism of Obama and his Berliner boys. This is the stuff which makes world wars, as Obama has removed all the buffer states and now it is all the nuclear powers chafing up against each other.
