Red China's abstention was fully expected, once again big weapons deals with leftist terrorist Col. Qaddafi.
Brazil, now controlled by a Marxist 'ex'-guerrilla & her anti-American cohorts, also gave support to Libya's dictator by not voting in favour of the no fly zone.
Germany also abstained. Really something! It's reminiscent of what some Germans still consider "The good old days", when Nazi Germany gave full support to the pro-Nazi Arab Grand Mufti, who supplied thousands of various Muslim nationals for Himmler's Waffen SS divisions.
NO WAR FOR OIL!
