          So, who is sitting?
          Haftar relies on Egypt and the UAE + Moscow (but Moscow plays with all the participants and Tripoli is also Haftar's enemy - Saranzh also flew to Moscow if that). The UN and the EU do not recognize him, he is trying to legitimize through the elected government of Tobruk - but nobody except Egypt and the UAE recognized him.
          Dawn - is based on the government of national unity in Tripoli, recognized by the EU and the UN.
          The rest rely on local alliances of interests and try to keep their kingdom in the sands, from rebuilding the country and losing the powers of regional forces.

            In 1980, on behalf of the President, Haftar participated in the Chadian-Libyan conflict. Libyan troops under the leadership of Haftar in 1987 were defeated, and he was captured. Gaddafi accused him of failing the operation and put him under arrest upon his return.
            After his release, Haftar left for the USA and devoted about 20 years to the fight against Gaddafi. Haftar settled in Virginia, where the CIA headquarters is also located.
            participated in the overthrow of Gaddafi, ties with the CIA, ties with Moscow - aren't these two chairs?

              So what were his options? He has a house in Virginia, sn, a good life. If he then began to refuse to cooperate, he would have been extradited to Gaddafi, and in the palace he would have lived a very short, but very eventful life.

              At one time (2011), he voluntarily served as an ace in the Hilary deck. But when Hilary was kicked out, the Americans scored him. And then, without supervision, he felt that he could build his Jamahiriya with himself at the head. That builds wink .

              The Americans quickly came to their senses - but it was too late to clean up quietly. And they still have no desire to bomb Haftar either.

                Benghazi took it, but where are the guarantees that he will not begin to move forward? He is also in contact with Moscow. Explicitly a dictator, democratizing, if he continues to continue in the same vein.

    A promising naval base for Russia. You can control the entire Mediterranean. Haftar is an old friend of Russia, and most importantly its weapons.

      Em? Do you even know that he lived in the USA to solder the CIA? After Toyota lost in the War and Kadafka wanted to kill him a little.

      In the 2011 year, Hilary relied on him, in fact, Haftar did the main job of breaking up the army (he had authority) and in fact created from deserters - the free army of Libya with which he reached Tripoli.

      After Hilary was kicked out, Haftar was also thrown off the board. But he was able to reuse his connections and authority, creating an army.
