French Foreign Minister Alain Juppé said he thought it would only be reasonable if French companies benefited from preferential access to Libyan contracts given that Paris, together with the U.K., led the foreign military offensive in Libya. "The NTC has said very publicly that, in the reconstruction effort, it would give preferential treatment to those who supported them," Mr. Juppé told French radio RTL. "That seems quite logical and fair."Reconstruction? What reconstruction?
Another question is where are Europe's leftist, anti-imperialist forces?
