    Libya Threatens To Bomb N Korean Oil Tanker

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/...A2709K20140308

    Story above.

    Libya threatened on Saturday to bomb a North Korean-flagged tanker if it tried to ship oil from a rebel-controlled port, in a major escalation of a standoff over the country's petroleum wealth.


    The rebels, who have seized three major Libyan ports since August to press their demands for more autonomy, warned Tripoli against staging an attack to halt the oil sale after the tanker docked at Es Sider export terminal, one of the country's biggest.


    The oil dispute is just one facet of the deepening turmoil in the North African OPEC member, where the government is struggling to control militias who helped topple Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 but kept their weapons and now challenge state authority
    .


    I especially love this line:

    Prime Minister Ali Zeidan appeared hours later on television to warn the tanker's crew. "The tanker will be bombed if it doesn't follow orders when leaving (the port). This will be an environmental disaster," Zeidan said.

    Congratulations US-UK-France-NATO government tyrants... yet another nation/country you have turned into a $#@!hole. Scheuer, "Wherever there's trouble in the world, you can count on the CIA being in the middle of it."

    BTW, Rumors, Libyan puppet government is going to make a huge military purchases(beside now growing a domestic army under UK-US training advisers), most likely the UK's RAF Typhoon fighter aircraft. OH, before I forget, the current Libya government has also cut the granted money for Libyans to attend foreign universities/educational institutions.

    Here's another 'news snack', which is probably a buildup-operations for invasion/assistance to take out the half of the country that is still pro Qaddafi militias/supporters.

    (Reuters) - Western countries voiced concern on Thursday that tensions in Libya could slip out of control in the absence of a functioning political system, and they urged the government and rival factions to start talking.
    Two-and-a-half years after the fall of former leader Muammar Gaddafi, the oil-rich North African state is struggling to contain violence between rival forces, with Islamist militants gaining an ever-stronger grip on the south of the country.
    "The situation in Libya is very worrying," French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told reporters on the margins of a conference in Rome to discuss the Libyan crisis.
    He said the uncertain security position, especially in the south, worsened an unstable political situation which required Libyan political forces to come together to reach a solution.
    "We are asking the Libyans to talk to each other and to find a stable solution," he said.
