180 dead, 800 wounded in Libya

Clashes not over any time soon, folks. Libya's production, which increased to 1.098 million bpd in March, is set to fall again.

Libya was much better off under King Idris I.  When his nephew died in 1992, the successor was appointed by Royal Decree, Prince Mohammed El Hassan El Rida El Senussi.  You have to wonder if Libya would be better off today if it was again an effective, orderly Monarchy, with its Constitution and Western alliances, including of course the re-start of that big US air base just outside Tripoli, to kinda sorta keep a damper on the Ghaddafi types that want to do a coup d'etat

Who was it that found oil there?  Esso?  Back around 1953?  All that royalty money, all wasted, all gone.  What a shame.
