Libyan Airstrikes and the Western Oil grab in the name of "What"

The ongoing Libyan airstrikes only serve to show that American intervention can only be expected in cases that impact our own, or the national interest of our allies, in this case France and the U.K. While I don’t have a problem with that in concept, I do mind the rhetoric, fundamentally we don’t really care about you or your country only its resources’ and access to them. Let’s not be hypocritical here if there were no Oil there would be no air strikes.

Currently Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Syria, Bahrain, Jordan and Yemen have ongoing protests and at least the possibility of overthrows or at least major changes to the existing governments.

I have seen no MSM (main stream media) coverage to date of the extreme instability in world politics or the effects (Nuclear) if the many oppressive governments we currently support Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Yemen, Qatar, are overthrown. Or where we, (US) are going to get oil and what the other major players, Russia, China, and EU are going to do to get it (anything).

With the rapid rise in worldwide inflation, the plundering of the middle class around the world and the frustration of people everywhere fueled by world events, disasters, and the highest food prices in 30 years we may very well be on the edge of another world war.
