    Now this is getting interesting......:thinking:

    The Middle East is an important source of oil for China. On the weekend, Saudi Arabia's Aramco announced its latest proposal to supply crude to a refinery in the southwest of China, where Beijing is building an oil pipeline that slices through Myanmar.

    About half of China's crude imports last year came from the Middle East and North Africa. China wants to diversify supplies, but Arab countries and Iran hold so much of global reserves that they are sure to remain major suppliers.

    "China's influence in the Middle East has grown steadily, reflecting its economic growth, and that will oblige China to speak out more about regional affairs," said Guo Xian'gang, vice president of the China Institute of International Studies in Beijing.

    On Saturday, Libya's top oil official said Tripoli was considering offering oil block contracts directly to China, India and other nations it sees as friends in its month-long conflict with rebels.

    Yet Beijing has had relatively limited diplomatic sway in the Middle East, and no major military role. It has tended to bow, sometimes begrudgingly, to Western demands, while pursuing its commercial and energy interests.

    China's handling of Libya reflects that awkward balance: both accommodating and criticizing Western demands.

    In abstaining on the Security Council resolution, it cited calls of Arab countries for prompt U.N. action.

    Beijing has rarely used its veto as a permanent Security Council member to block resolutions, but has sought to dilute Western proposals by using the threat of veto. It abstained from the resolution that preceded the 1991 Gulf War.

    Russia, which also abstained on the resolution, called on Britain, France and the United States at the weekend to stop the air strikes, describing them as "non-selective use of force" against non-military targets.


    I got a feeling this is about to get deeper than people realize or want to realize.....:thinking:

    As I have stated before, the BRIC countries abstained recognizing the strugle in Libya will be a protracted one which likely may lead to fragmentation or partitioning of the country.

    This is why its interesting that Obama was in a BRIC country (Brazil) when the US intervention began.

    WW3 has begun...

    You know when a heroin addict is sick and he needs a fix and he is broke, he looks at a house and cases it to rob it

    until his cut buddy tells him, that owner of the house is connected to "the mafia" leave them alone!!!!!!!

    so he does, but he still got that jones, so he seeks to hit another home


    Iran has been the focus of a ruse for another US attack to get Iranian oil, for four years

    Bush called them the axis of evil,
    and Obama castigated them with that old "weapons of mass desruction" hype claiming that they were trying to build a nuclear weapon, as well as speeches and promises to AIPAC

    But America realized the strong relationship Iran had with China so they had to

    find some other "house" to break into

    These new trade offers looks like Kaddafi seeking "mafia help" a bit too late


    TEHRAN: Iran's main economic partner China has invested around 40 billion dollars in the Islamic republic's oil and gas sector, a senior Iranian official said on Saturday.

    Deputy Oil Minister Hossein Noqrehkar Shirazi also said that Tehran's oil exports to China fell by 30 percent in the first six months of 2010 compared with the corresponding period last year.

    "The volume (of Chinese investment) in upstream projects is 29 billion dollars," Noqrehkar Shirazi told Mehr news agency, adding that Beijing had signed contracts worth another 10 billion dollars in petrochemicals, refineries and oil and gas pipeline projects.

    He said China has also put forward proposals to participate in building seven new refineries in Iran.

    March 22,2011- China called Tuesday for an immediate cease-fire in Libya where the U.S. and European nations have launched punishing airstrikes to enforce a U.N. no-fly zone.

    All parties must "immediately cease fire and resolve issues through peaceful means," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said at a regularly scheduled news conference, citing unconfirmed reports that the airstrikes had caused civilian deaths.

    China was one of five countries that abstained from last week's vote on the U.N. resolution to allow "all necessary measures" to stop Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's assault on rebel-held towns. It was approved with the backing of the United States, France and Britain.

    Beijing has been sharply critical of the airstrikes that hit Libyan air defenses and forces for a third night Monday. The Foreign Ministry registered "serious reservations" about the resolution, and on Monday the country's most important political newspaper compared the Western airstrikes against Libya to the U.S.-led invasions in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    China expressed its regret and opposed the use of force in international relations in a foreign ministry statement when commenting on the Libyan crisis and the Western-led air strikes.

    "Following the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, a military strike against Libya is the third time in this century that a number of countries wielded force against a sovereign state," said a signed commentary in China's main newspaper the People’s Daily.

    "It should be noted that attempts to resolve the crisis using military means affects the U.N. Charter and the norms governing international relations,

    "In today's world where some people with the Cold War mentality are still keen on the use of force, people have reason to express concerns about the effects of the military action," added the commentary entitled "Do not abandon hope for peaceful resolution to Libyan crisis."

    Russia called on Britain, France and the United States to stop air strikes against the non-military targets in Libya, saying the attacks had caused civilian casualties.

    "The resolution (on non-fly zone) is defective and flawed," said Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, adding "It allows everything. It resembles medieval calls for crusades."

    "In that respect we call on countries involved to stop the non-selective use of force," its foreign ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich echoed.

    India's Foreign Minister S.M. Krishna said the strikes would lead to more harm to "innocent civilians, foreign nationals and diplomatic missions."

    "India calls upon all parties to abjure violence and the use of threat and force to resolve the differences. I think the need of the hour is cessation of armed conflict," he told reporters.

    Arab League chief Amr Moussa condemned the "bombardment of civilians" and called for an emergency meeting of the group of 22 states to discuss the Libyan issue.

    Osama is fulfilling his "residential duty", as once again a Resident of the U.S. corporation has attacked a muslim country with little to no provocation. This trend can be traced all the way back to Reagan....

    U.S Fighter Jet Crashes

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/af_libya

    BU MARIEM, Libya – An American fighter jet crashed in Libya's rebel held east, both crew ejecting safely as the aircraft spun from the sky during the third night of the U.S. and European air campaign. Moammar Gadhafi's forces shelled rebels regrouping in the dunes outside a key eastern city on Tuesday, and his snipers and tanks roamed the last major opposition-held city in the west.
