Pepe Escobar: 'R2P' is now Right 2 Plunder "... The white man's burden doesn't allow asking Africans what they think about the current Western/monarchical Arab onslaught on the northern shores of their continent. At least some are not beating around the bush.Over 200 African leaders and intellectuals released a letter in Johannesburg, South Africa, stressing the "misuse of the United Nations Security Council to engage in militarized diplomacy to effect regime change in Libya", as well as the "marginalization of the African Union".As for the Western "winners" in Libya, they are not even playing smoke and mirrors anymore..."http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Middle_East/MH27Ak03.html.
Africom will now be stationed in Libya, after being shunned by every African state. What a timely coincidence!http://www.africom.mil/see Africom:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Africa_Commandhttp://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/1552/t/5717/signUp.jsp?key=3094.
Pepe Escobar has some interesting insights and he can be witty. That said, his attitude towards the USA and the West resembles my ex-wife's attitude towards me. I.e.: he assumes the rottenest possible motives as a given.
