Is Libya War Waged to Protect Oil Interests?

Congressman Ron Paul asks a very valid question:

[W]e must ask why this administration was so eager to embark on this Libyan operation in the name of ‘humanitarianism.’ Governments in Bahrain and Yemen have this year used military force to put down democratic protestors. The Saudi regime, which practices Sharia Law, has also been repressive, yet we have not intervened there. These countries continue to sell us oil, while Libya had begun to turn their exports toward Russia, China, India, and Brazil.

Could this war largely be about protecting our oil interests at the expense of our Constitution?

It appears so.
