Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, April 2011: “We’ve engineered Libyan unrest & protests”



From  interview of  Press TV with Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former assistant secretary to US Treasury



“Press TV: Are you saying the ultimate goal in attacking Libya is because of the oil factor?

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: It’s not just the oil, it’s the fact of China’s penetration of Africa and China lining up oil supplies for its energy needs. You may be aware that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has released a report that says that the ‘Age of America’ is over and that the American economy will be bypassed by China in five years and then the US will become the second largest economy rather than first. So one of the things Washington is trying to do is to block; to use its superior military and strategic capabilities at this time to block China’s acquisition of resources in order to make the development of the Chinese economy slow down.”

“..It’s also payback to Gaddafi for refusing to join the US Africa Command (AFRICOM). It became operative in 2008 and was the American response to China’s penetration of Africa; we created a military response to that and Gaddafi refused to participate — he said it was an act of imperialism trying to purchase an entire continent.

And I think the third reason is that Gaddafi in Libya controls an important part of the Mediterranean coast; as does Syria.

So I think those two countries are just in the way of American hegemony in the Mediterranean and certainly the Americans don’t want a powerful Russian fleet stationed there and they certainly don’t want China drawing energy resources…”

 “…Washington was caught off guard by the outbreaks of protests in Tunisia and Egypt, but quickly learned that they could use and hide behind Arab protests to evict Russia and China without a direct confrontation, they wouldn’t want that, so they’ve [ people from   White  House] engineered these protests…
