Why Benghazi, Libya?

Maybe this fact will help you understand why the U.S., Canada, the European Union, and others are so preoccupied for the preservation of innocent lives in Benghazi. And their preoccupation have no limits, as we have seen.

Libya is the largest light oil producer (the one preferred for fuel refining) and it has the biggest proven oil reserve in Africa. Libya is also one of the main suppliers of oil to Europe, and in 2009 it was the 16th oil exporter in the world. It currently produces 1.6 million barrels daily which amounts to 2% of the global production.

So preoccupied are these oil-thirsty world powers that for instance, the U.S., which has launched 110 Tomahawk missiles, at a cost of $569.000, will have spent in a matter of hours $56.9 million just to “help” ... raise the victims death toll.
