You are able to have an embargo on Iran because we helped the Frogs and the Brits get better access to Libyan oil!


We already had access to Libyan oil!!

A snippet:


From the moment Tony Blair began the sickening process of cosying up to the Gaddafi regime, in order to win lucrative oil contracts, Britain’s relations with Libya have been a stain on the national conscience.
First, we armed and trained the murderous tyrant’s troops.
Later, in further dubious dealings over oil, the Brown government took the despicable decision to release from a Scottish jail the only man ever convicted of the Lockerbie bombing.

Then, in the most extraordinary volte-face, the UK government has gone from embracing this mad tyrant to trying to kill him in what can, at best, be described as a highly chaotic military intervention.


With a little research you could post something sensible.

I'm done with this.


Regards

Tony
