The author makes a good case for his thesis about the real purpose of NATO's Libyan adventure. Libya, if NATO's puppet government succeeds in suppressing opposition, will provide a much needed NATO base in the African continent to thwart China's access to oil. The Empire can tolerate no rivals.
Typical of the many contradictions of capitalism, NATO countries were easily seduced into taking advantage of access to China's cheap labor supply in order to enrich the capitalist class; but this in turn also created an increasingly powerful and independent competitor for the diminishing supplies of fossil fuels.
Today China is the world's second largest importer of oil after the United States and the gap is rapidly closing.
