The Western-engineered civil war in Libya continues, destroying the once prosperous country in Africa. Elections are scheduled for December 24 but it is not certain whether they will be held. The list of candidates is long but Saif al-Islam, son of the late Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi, has been disqualified.
Turkey has come to the aid of the internationally-recognized government of Libya. It has also announced plans to explore gas in the Eastern Mediterranean. Should Turkey succeed in shoring up the government in Tripoli, it could pose a threat to the regime in Egypt.
Since the brutal lynching of Muammar Qaddafi in October 2011, Libya has not witnessed any peace. Now the Western regimes that created the mayhem in the first place are backing another “strongman” to protect their oil interests. The people of Libya must take a back seat.
Libya’s plight accurately captures the West’s way of dealing with Third-World countries. First, destroy a country, and then come with promises of “help.” It was announced on July 17, amid much fanfare, that Western investors, The Guidry Group, are launching a billion-dollar infrastructure project to change the face of the war-torn country.
Major donors to political parties and to individual politicians have totally corrupted the American political system. This explains why wars are waged all over the world leading to much bloodshed and hatred for the US.2
Libya was the most prosperous country in North Africa yet after Nato’s 2011 attack, it has been turned into a failed State. Those responsible for this crime should be punished.2
Five years after Colonel Muammar Qaddafi was publicly lynched, the people of Libya are again turning to the Qaddafi family to save them from the mayhem that has engulfed the country.1
The people of Libya have suffered for more than five years since the Western Crusaders destroyed the regime of Colonel Muammar Qaddafi. His son, Seif al-Islam who was sentenced to death last year is now seen as a savior of Libya.2
While associated with renewal and growth, the month of March brings grim reminder of how terribly movements for change in the Muslim world have been subverted. Leaders of Islamic movements need to pay close attention to their modus operandi.
Who is responsible for the mayhem in Libya and why is there little or no attention paid to the plight of the Libyan people in the media? The country no longer exists as a unitary state; there are fiefdoms created by warlords who are rampaging through parts of the country.
Western regimes that trumpeted the ‘liberation’ of Libya with so much fanfare are now silent as rival militias, former military officers and others battle it out for control. The country is so dangerous that most western diplomats have fled.
Parliamentary elections were held in Libya on June 25 but few people bothered to cast ballot. They had more weighty things on their mind: the growing security problem, lack of food and fuel and total chaos that has gripped the country since the US-Nato alliance “liberated” it from the clutches of Colonel Qaddafi.
The US and its Nato allies have destroyed Libya. It has descended into lawlessness with heavily armed militias staking claims to various pieces of real estate and assets. People, especially Muslims elsewhere looking for US/Western help ought to keep Libya in mind before deciding.
Libya is in a mess, thanks to the Western-trained and armed militias. The people continue to suffer but the West is not bothered. Their purpose was to destroy the country; they have succeeded in that.
The hoax perpetrated by the West promising democracy to the people of Libya if they got rid of Colonel Muammar Qaddafi lies smouldering in the ruins of burned out homes, schools and hospitals. Libya is a country in the grip of armed militias answerable to no one. The government does not exist even in name.
The people of Libya have experienced no peace since the western-backed campaign to oust him from power was launched in April 2011. Colonel Muammar Qaddafi was murdered in cold blood but ruthless criminals have taken over killing innocent people.
Has Libya been ‘liberated’ from the clutches of Muammar Qaddafi’s tyranny or plunged into chaos by the thugs and hoodlums trained and armed by the west? Life for ordinary Libyans has become extremely grim.
