Goals of Libyan war thrown into question.


Italy has a special relationship with Libya, which has been financially beneficial to both countries. This includes aggressive and highly effective actions by Gadaffi to halt the flow of illegal aliens from the African continent. Libya is also repatriating African illegal aliens back to Africa for the Italians. With Libya’s help, illegal immigration into Italy went from a flood to a trickle.

Since problems in Libya began, African boat people immediately began landing on Italian shores. No matter what you think of Gaddafi, he has been Southern Europe’s greatest ally in the fight against illegal immigration for the past few years.

Italy oil companies also have a special relationship with Libya, which Sarkozy hoped to acquire out from underneath the Italians by recognizing the rebels as the official government.
