It turns out that light sweet crude contains less sulfur and is much easier to refine. Since many refineries are not even capable of refining the alternate sour crude, Libyan sweet crude oil is especially valuable.
Now Obama (meet the new boss, same as the old boss) wants a NATO invasion of Libya.
Many people in Tunisia and Egypt are still unhappy ...[text shortened]... situation in Libya differently than Tunisia and Egypt. Is light sweet crude the primary reason?

Fidel Castro is making a fuss about it as well as others.
Originally posted by sh76Obama said he was talking to NATO leaders about it. Saw him on the news last night. It was very brief and there was others discussing it as well.
Yes, I saw that Castro said it.
Obama did not say it. All Obama has said, from what I can tell, is that Gadaffi should step down.
Originally posted by Metal BrainWould meeting to dismiss [in the face of speculation] the possibility that it is "a serious option" count as it "being discussed" as a serious option?
Originally posted by FMFObama tried to get NATO support for it and found out it wasn't there. Now they are back peddling.
What I am talking about - I suppose - is the definition of "serious" - particularly in the context of the breathless 24 hour news cycle.
