Humanism Laced with Geopolitics

The Director General of the European strategic intelligence and security center Claude Moniquet says that political and oil interests are behind the jostling by France and Britain to spearhead the military campaign against Libya, saying that both countries are scheming to play the leading political role in the Arab world. “Besides, the action of Paris and London in that region are traditionally dictated by oil interest”, Moniquet said.

Western countries’ main aims in the troubled regions are not so much the protection of civilians, as the pursuit of economic and geopolitical interests, as evidenced by similar military operations in the past 20 years.
