Here Come “The Boots On The Ground”: EU Approves “Possible” Military Operation For Libya
by Tyler Durden
While it has been made very clear that no US “boots” would be on the ground in Libya, except for those beloning to CIA operatives of course, no such stigma applies to Europe. Which is why we were not surprised to read the following from RIA Novosti: “The European Council on Friday approved the decision to mount an EU military operation to support humanitarian efforts in Libya, if asked to do so by the United Nations. “The EU will, if requested by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), conduct a military operation in…order to support humanitarian assistance in the region,” the council statement read.” Of course, humantiarian assistance only works best with silver tipped warheads and laser scopes. And honestly who didn’ expect that the goal for Triopli’s oil would mean a land invasion any minute? Oil most certainly did, with WTI just closing at a fresh 2.5 year high of $108.
