New level Of Conflict: Eastern Forces Seize Town South of Tripoli

Eastern Libyan forces on Thursday took full control of Gharyan, a town about 100 km (60 miles) south of the capital Tripoli, bringing their conflict with Libya’s internationally recognized government to a potentially dangerous new level.The capture of Gharyan after skirmishes on Wednesday with forces allied to Tripoli Prime Minister Fayez al-Serraj followed a rapid thrust westwards by Khalifa Haftar’s Libyan National Army (LNA) from his eastern stronghold of Benghazi. The developments signified a serious escalation of the power tussle in Libya that has dragged on since the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. Libya has been divided between the Western-backed government in Tripoli and a parallel administration allied to Haftar since Gaddafi’s downfall.

I wonder why nobody criticized Obama and Hillary for their Arab Spring activities.

Because it was racist to criticize Obama and sexist to criticize Hillary

We have U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to thank for this mess.

Worked in Libya (in different oilfields) between January 1986 and end of 1989. Then in 2004. It’s very sad to hear the news about war in Libya. Libya deserves better. The people needs help. Help not war
