Libyan Rebellion Halts Oil Exports - Funding Crunch Imminent

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Europe is not the entity facing a funding crunch this morning. Just out from Reuters:

  • LIBYAN REBELS UNLIKELY TO EXPORT MORE CRUDE UNTIL PRODUCTION RESUMES - OIL OFFICIAL

Which means that Gaddafi has now managed to isolate and send the Libyan rebellion, armed with a central bank before they even had a constitution, on the road to insolvency. Which also means that should CIA efforts wish to be successful, especially in light of recent inability by NATO to continue the air superiority campaign due to lack of munitions, America will have no choice but to either directly provide funding to rebels, or puts marines directly on the ground: both moves which will likely not do much for the president's popularity rating.

Why don't you get "supportive" and drag your ass out to that zoo?

UnAmerican?

HAHAHA!

Being American is doing what's right for your country. Supporting a baboon who's trashing the US into a debt slave state isn't what your founding fathers had in mind.

Your probably on of the most UnAmerican guys walking arround.

It's interesting how the government version of "Support the Troops" means: Send them into illegal foreign wars to be maimed, blown to pieces, separated from their families, and then abandoned by the system when they get home.

It's all about oil for Obama, so I fully expect him to put troops on the ground.  The ruse of supporting fledgling democracy, or even crazier, stopping Rihwanda type genocide, has become absolutely laughable.  It seems the resource wars have gone full surreal, right out in the open.  The Obama government must be looking hard at the realities of peak oil, and what they are seeing is scaring the shit out of them, otherwise why would they be reacting so desperately.  I never thought preemptive wars, and wholesale invasions of sovereign countries of little or no significant military threat would become our modus operandi.  Hell what is next, Saudi ?  At some point the Russians and Chinese may say FU, then we really get our war.

Let's see who else could possibly be up for a war of good versus ebil.

There are now only 5 nations on the world left without a Rothschild controlled central bank: Iran; North Korea; Sudan; Cuba; and Libya.

Stupid isntreal already going after sudan. When they go for iran it'll be full retard.

Welcome to the latest branch of rothchilds international house of bankcakes. Please take a number. Wait times are presently estimated at 3 to 6 months. That however is forever in bush months. We expect an investment of 3 billion dollars being revisted to 1.4 trillion with an expected return of 1 trillion being revised to 78 dollars we stole off a whore in a back alley while waiting for the blackhawk helicopter to pick us up.

All Ghadafy has to do is continue destroying refineries and tank farms, keep the pressure on crude prices for a few more months, let NATO punch itself out ineffectually.

When Sarkozy's War begins to fold and the debt crisis is roaring along the Mediterranean, then it's time to launch a massive airstrike on Italy. His Su-24s will reach Sicily pretty easily, about 15 minutes in the air each way. We'll call it Dr. Doolittle's Raid. Highly symbolic to show NATO what a paper tiger it's become.

That's the plan. Ghaddafi is not a fed facist puppet.

If you want to know who a fed facist puppet is then they are generally ignored or viewed as reasonable. If they aren't a fed facist puppet then they are crazy as all get out. Or smuggling tennis shoes through the gaza strip. Or something.

"East Sudan has long been a route for the smuggling of arms that often pass through Egypt's Sinai desert and reach the Gaza Strip, territory controlled by Hamas Islamists, via tunnels under the border."

Israel just launched a hellfire missile at sudan's officials. The us sent 680 hellfire missiles to israel in 2006 and they are the only country within range who has any. Now logically this is a terroist strike and america is supporting terroism. But somehow some way sudan is a terrorist state who harbors terrorists and doesn't have a rothchild controlled central bank. Apparently terroism means something like banking competition or something. If you make car parts you have to call them a competitor but if you make bank transactions it escalates to terroism and if you buy up a competitors stock it's a hostile takeover. If you send troops from a bank it's a banking version of a really hostile takeover.

Now. Name the 5 countries without a rothchild controlled central bank. I've seen somebody post it before on here.

We didn't start Tunisia.  We didn't start Egypt.  What's going on in Syria wasn't Cameron leading the charge of the light brigade through the CBD of Damascus.  You may think it was, so be it.  You may think like the original author that the Egypt uprising by all those sitting in Tahrir square from the outset were all employees of BP wanting in on Egypt's vast oil resources, yes sarcasm, delude yourself in whatever reasoning you want to avoid assissting.   Just say you don't want to be involved outside your own borders.  Fair enough viewpoint and a legitimate viewpoint but don't mask it with obfuscations such as we don't know who's next as a basis for not getting involved.  The vast majority of Libyans chose to rise up to throw out a dictator, another in the continuation of Arab populations rising up to want a say in their own futures and you shit on them for that and say to them screw you, we prefer Gadaffi to the unknown.   We didn't know who was next in Tunisia either.  Lets give those that want to express their own voice, for their own right to decide, a chance to decide.   An opportunity at hand here to do just that.  A homegrown grass roots swelling unfolding, history making, yet is spewed out by the author as if they are actually BP employees in camouflage funded by Hillary Clinton.  It's outrageous and diminishes the credibility of the author BIGTIME, unnecessarily.

The obama administration states that we're in libya to protect civilians and humanitarian aid. It is so sad that our idea of protecting civilians and humanitarian relief is dropping bombs and flooding the country with weapons. We have turned a civil war that probably wouldn't have lasted a week and cost tens of thousands of lives into a civil war that will last years and cost hundreds of thousand of lives. What great humanitarians we are. But hey why not finance the rebels, Obama will have another reason to raise taxes on the "rich".

Welcome to a war brought to you by the President that promised everything he would do would be "smarter".  With it's muddled objectives, incoherent strategy and non-existent exit strategy.  Kind of similar to the "smart" way he's running the economy into the ground.

 

I'd like to know why the media hasn't started to call the a "Qaugmire" yet.  They just couldn't get enough of that word a few years back.

Soo many times seen before.
Speculative oil prices pumping to sustain artificial inflation is loosing steam cause demand destruction in real world ... therefore various "rebels" around the world will stop oil exports one by one.

Next: nigeria delta "rebels" hijacked shell workers bla bla , nigeria crisis , pipelines blowed up etc etc

Remember similar 2008 titles and various pipelines destroyed ....
If demand falls, just call red phone and order artificial trouble - banksters have targets and timeline to keep

my take is that the reason why marines will be marching to Tripoli is not lack of munition but the need to escort 145t of gold out of Libya's CB (which, btw, is not hofjuden owned) into hofjuden hands in London.
