Your media tells you that its human rights you're fighting for. Your media tells you its Islam and extremism you're fighting against. Your media does not say that its OIL, and its ONLY OIL for which you're poking your nose everywhere..

Look at the list of the countries that have the most of the world's oil reserves (billion barrels) and you'll understand where the western interests lie:

1 Saudi Arabia - 260 (Oil, oil and oil..)
2 Iraq - 110 (Saddam or OIL???)
3 Kuwait - 95 (Liberate Kuwait? or OIL?)
4 United Arab Emirates - 95 (Islam, or OIL?)
5 Iran - 92 (comments by the Irani president? or their plan for nuclear weapon? or OIL !)
6 Venezuela - 66 (its not Chavez, my dear, its OIL)
7 Russia - 49 (Oil reserve is as important as communism)
8 Mexico - 27
9 China - 24 (Human rights? communism? OIL?)
10 United States - 23

So, oil made most of these countries and their leaders 'authoratarian', extremists, terrorists, 'trying to build weapons of mass destruction' etc.

"Middle East oil is a stupendous source of strategic power, and one of the greatest material prizes in world history." mentioned U.S. State Department in 1945.

There lies the seed of the 'Muslim vs West' enmity.
This enmity will never end until you grab all the oil of the world.

Don't sing the song of democracy and human rights and terrorise the western public with the fear of imaginary 'Islamic invasion in Europe'.
Only fools will believe that.
