The genie has escaped
from the bottle and NATO doesn't know how to control it.
They are going
to attempt to wrest the most benefits from the regrettable
events in Libya.
Nobody can know at this moment what is happening over
there. All the figures

been spread by the empire
via the mass media, sowing chaos and
It is obvious
that inside Libya a civil war is brewing. Why and how did
this happen? Who

could go beyond any
"`If Libya and Algeria suspend oil production, prices could reach
maximum of more than 220 dollars a barrel and OPEC's inactive

What Ban Ki-moon is really hoping is
that Obama pronounces the last word.
The president of the United States
spoke this Wednesday afternoon and
stated that the Secretary of State would
be leaving for Europe in order to
