Castro: U.S. after Libya's oil

March 7, 2011 - 0:0

The Cuban Revolution leader, Fidel Castro, has described a potential NATO intervention in Libya as U.S.-led operation aiming to invade and take control of the country's oil.

In an essay named “NATOs' Inevitable War,” Castro said the U.S. and NATO consider the Libyan civil war as an opportunity to call for military intervention in a bid to get their hands on the northern African country's oil, CNN reported.
The report published in Cuban state media on Wednesday, also accused the Western media of spreading a large amount of lies about Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's crackdowns on the anti-regime protesters in Libya.
Western countries are currently weighing a military intervention in Libya, while a couple of U.S. warships are approaching the Libyan shores and the country is calling for imposing a no-fly zone over the African country.
Gaddafi, meanwhile, has warned of more bloodshed and murder of Libyans in the event of foreign intervention.
