George Galloway, the combative British MP, put Anna Walker of Sky News in her place when she tried to insist that Libya's oil is negligible and hardly worth starting a war over.

"BP has 15 billion pounds worth of investments in Libya," Galloway instructed the corporate media teleprompter reader, "so don't pretend it is not a big deal."

The BP angle is of course not mentioned when the Pentagon script readers here in the States go on ad nauseam about humanitarianism and disinfecting Libya of Gaddafi the thug.

BP CEO Bob Dudley said "we remain committed to doing business" in Libya regardless of what Gaddafi was doing to protesters.

"That morning, stories of tanks crushing unarmed protestors in Benghazi and massacres by (British-built) sniper rifles had been front page news. As Dudley spoke, reports emerged of airstrikes targeting demonstrations across the country," the social justice website Platform reported.

BP and the government of Libya have a lucrative deal searching for offshore oil. "BP signed a deal worth at least $900 million in 2007 to explore in Libya. It said it would monitor the situation on a daily basis and could not confirm when work would start again, but stressed that offshore operations in the region were still open and the closure would not impact oil production," the Associated Press reported as hostilities broke out between the government and protesters.

BP was lobbying hard to secure the deal when Gaddafi sent his henchman to kill protesters during February 2006 demonstrations in Benghazi.
