Libya: The military intervention and the political project of the West

French Defense Minister Gerard Longuet said, “The military intervention is there because we have a political project” in Libya. Protection of the civilian lives is a pretext to get rid of anti-Western regime in Libya. The West has intervened in the countries where it has political and economic interests. The control of oil is the main reason behind the colonial agenda of the West in the Middle East.

The Western colonialists carved up the Middle East into puppet states under Sykes–Picot Agreement of 1916. Since then the colonialists have not stopped intervening in the Middle East. The creation of Israel and current invasion of Libya is the extension of the political project of the West.

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin rightly said that invasion of Libya “resembles medieval calls for crusades.” He also said, “How can one, having in mind the protection of the civilian population, use the means which leads to more losses among the peaceful population? We can't help but be concerned.”

The Western “crusades” will fail and people of the Middle East will enjoy the real democracy in the light of their culture and religion.
