(#Libya) Libyan Officials In Talks with EU Officials in Brussels (Sellout Time?)

(Update - more info from Reuters on my newer post; Gaddafi's officials are to take part in the EU/NATO meetings.)

That's #Gaddafi's officials, from what I can figure. Cutting deals to sell out anti-Gaddafi Libyans for the sake of "stability" (aka "status quo" favored by the so-called "democratic "West), perhaps?

Restore "stability" and prevent "human sufferings", I guess would be the noble aims that the officials - Libyan and EU whose member states heavily depend on oil from Libya - try to achieve. Never mind that there has been a one long "human suffering" (42 years) for the sake of "stability" of oil supply to Europe.

6PM in Tripoli is 8AM PST, 11AM EST in the US. Hmmm. That explains the sudden, violent reversal in the price of gold. (See the intraday chart of GLD, a gold ETF.)

From Al Jazeera Libya Blog (3/9/2011):


Confirmed to Al Jazeera: Libyan envoys are meeting with European Union officials in Brussels.


Al Jazeera is getting reports that three of Liyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's private planes have taken off from a military airstrip near Tripoli.

Karl Stango-Navarra, a journalist based in Valletta, Malta, told Al Jazeera that the three jets are flying in three different directions.

"One is suggested to be Vienna, the other is supposed to be Athens in Greece, and the other is Cairo, Egypt," Stango-Navarra said.
