Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't believe they are doing it primarily for access to energy, because nothing the rebel leaders could promise now would be enforceable.
But that doesn't prevent voices from the ends of the political spectrum and the "global South", as well as Gaddafi, from claiming that this is all about the oil.

In the case of the UK, it could be trying scratch the Lockerbie itch, and so on...
