The Libyan Army retook Sirte from ISIS last December, and hopes to repeat the task elsewhere, with aid from Libya’s external friends i.e., the US and Russia. Until that happens, the country will remain a failed state on every single level of governance, providing groups like ISIS to regain strength and find in the Libyan youth a huge stock to recruit from.

4532423421Third week of February marked 6th anniversary of ‘popular’ up-rising in Libya that ultimately led to the overthrow of Gaddafi regime. Thanks to NATO’s intervention and the chaos it left behind, today’s Libya lies in ruins, over-run by a multitude of militias and the self-styled Islamic State. While NATO intervention itself was a drastic failure, as we had previously reported, its aftermath has turned out to be even more devastating, forcing the country to descend into utter chaos. What was previously a reasonably stable Libya is today a picture of extreme debilitation where power cuts are routine, water shortage is acute, inflation rate is sky high and a liquidity crisis is looming large.

Not one. We did that to those people and then just put it all on ‘ignore’. For the love of !!!!

      AFTER THEY KILL US OFF, THEN THEY WILL WORK ON EACH OTHER. THE EARTH HAVE BECOME A BOXING RING FOR SURE. AFTER THEY REPLACE US AND EACH OTHER, THE LAND MASS WILL LOOK LIKE BURNED TOAST.

I think there’s still hope that Russia, China and some of their allies may try to bring some of these war criminals to justice.
