It's not a conspiracy theory when Wikileaks revealed an exchange between Clinton and her key advisor, Sydney Blumenthall, about the true reasons for the Libya intervention, dated April 2, 2011:
Qaddafi’s government holds 143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver . . . . This gold was accumulated prior to the current rebellion and was intended to be used to establish a pan-African currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar. This plan was designed to provide the Francophone African Countries with an alternative to the French franc (CFA).
According to knowledgeable individuals this quantity of gold and silver is valued at more than $7 billion. French intelligence officers discovered this plan shortly after the current rebellion began, and this was one of the factors that influenced President Nicolas Sarkozy’s decision to commit France to the attack on Libya. According to these individuals Sarkozy’s plans are driven by the following issues:
1 A desire to gain a greater share of Libya oil production,
2 Increase French influence in North Africa,
3 Improve his internal political situation in France,
4 Provide the French military with an opportunity to reassert its position in the world,
5 Address the concern of his advisors over Qaddafi’s long term plans to supplant France as the dominant power in Francophone Africa
This is not conspiracy. This is the private position of the Clinton team in contrast to the public one you believe in.
The assertions that Gaddafi was slaughtering his people was everywhere, then Amnesty International showed it was not true. But the narrative had done its job.
As to why the Clinton's didn't intervene in Rawanda? Because there was no oil there.
Meanwhile Clinton friends are very oppressive regimes, like the Saudis of some of the Gulf states, yet there is no push to intervene there and so there is no constant media attention.
The 'civil war' in Syria was begun by outsiders who were financed by the Gulf monarchies in order to get rid of Assad, who was too friendly with Iran. This again has been revealed by the emails Wikileaks released.
We should never have gotten involved in Syria in the first place. The quicker we stop interferrng the better. USA Imperialism has a long history of making things worse.
When G.W. Bush was contemplating the Iraq War, Powell told him about the so called Pottery Barn rule: "You break it, you own it." Well, it was never the Pottery Barn's rule and a wise store would have a different rule: "You break it you get out of here and never come back." I prefer the latter policy.
