NATO takes lessons from occupation of Iraq

NATO is learning from the occupation of Iraq in its bid to control post-Gaddafi Libya and secure lucrative oil resources and gold deposits, by claiming that no boots will be on the ground, unless of course the puppet government controlled by the United Nations and NATO itself “requests” they be sent in.
“The leading role in the post-Gaddafi period in supporting the Libyan people rests with the United Nations and the Contact Group. NATO will be in a supporting role… NATO will have no troops on the ground,” the military alliance’s spokeswoman Oana Lungescu told a press briefing at NATO headquarters.”
Lungescu added that NATO troops would only be used to occupy the country “upon request” of the post-Gaddafi regime.
Of course, that regime will almost certainly be nothing more than a stooge administrative branch of UN and NATO itself.
Just like Iraq, where the puppet Iraqi regime of Prime Minister Nuri al Maliki is now in negotiations to request U.S. troops to remain as an occupying force, thereby abolishing a December 31 deadline for withdrawal that was never going to be fulfilled, the new NATO-backed government in Libya will simply make an identical request.
This will allow NATO to make it appear as if a third party has demanded their presence as necessary for the stability of the country, when in reality the whole charade is nothing more than a rubber stamp for western allies to gobble up Libya’s lucrative oil and gold resources.
As we reported earlier, British and American troops are already on standby to play such a role, a blueprint that has been in place for months.
