Why NATO Bombed Libya But Not Bahrain, Saudi Arabia or Qatar

It's hard to be 100% certain and indeed there may have been more than one reason for NATO's eagerness to bomb Libya through trumped up right to protect charges against citizens in Benghazi (who have subsequently gone on to desecrate war graves in protest at NATO).

In some ways it might be Gadaffi's silence that supports the most obvious claim that he was planning on refusing to accept worthless printed dollars from the US and worthless printed Euros from the EU and demand gold or a new pan African currency instead. One thing hard to ignore is the vindictiveness with which NATO powers sought revenge. The snuff movie of Gadaffi's final minutes is the greatest proof of this.
