Libyan Official Urges New US Intervention After Russians Seen "On Front Lines"

A new report in Axios suggests that Russia has significantly increased its presence in war-torn Libya, perhaps seeking to clean up the mess left in the wake of the US-NATO led regime change war which toppled Muammar Gaddafi.

This after a recent NY Times investigation found that at least 200 Russian mercenaries from Wagner Group have been in Libya supporting renegade General Khalifa Haftar's offensive against the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) in Tripoli.

Eight years after Gaddafi's overthrow and brutal field execution at the hands of NATO-backed rebel Islamists, the oil and gas abundant country is still in the throes of grinding factional civil war.

Interior Minister for Tripoli's GNA Fathi Bashagha told Axios the unfolding “proxy war” will doom the country to become “a haven for terrorists and extremists” unless the US steps in again.

However, the few times the Trump administration has weighed in on the continuing violence, it actually voiced support for Haftar and his Benghazi-based Libyan National Army (LNA), who are "securing the oil" - Trump said last April.

So ironically Washington and Moscow may currently be on the same side in terms of the major players in Libya; however, other powerful states like Turkey are giving active military support to the GNA in Tripoli.

Let's not forget what terrorist country...

Tian Shan

fk'd up Libya, and the angry, vindictive former first lady that was (reportedly) behind Gaddafi's death.

To get an insight into Gaddafi, one could start by reading (an easy read) Gaddafi's "Green Book" that can be found on-line.

Unlike the dissembled zionist vermin that run America, Gaddafi had a vision for Libya and then was murdered because of it.

The israeli zio-pigs made sure of that.
