US responds to Marshal Haftar's proclamation of the actual head of Libya

Urgent news That night they came from Libya and were distributed by major news agencies. The commander of the Libyan National Army, Khalifa Haftar, has declared his forces ruling in the country. Haftar himself at the same time became the self-proclaimed leader of Libya.


Recall that earlier Marshal Haftar sent an LNA to Tripoli with the goal, as he put it, of the national unification of the country.

Haftar:

My only goal is to protect the Libyan people, taking into account their will.

One of the main opponents of the fact that Libya united under the leadership of Khalifa Haftar was Ankara.
American officials reacted to Haftar's proclamation of his political leadership in Libya.

So, the American diplomatic mission in Libya said that Haftar is imposing his will, and his proclamation as head of state is "unilateral." In the US, they said they “regret what happened.”

This American statement once again reveals the double standards of the United States. It would be useful for Washington to recall how he supported Juan Guaido, who proclaimed himself the head of Venezuela in one of the streets of Caracas. Guaido was subsequently even invited to Congress. And the proclamation of Guaido as the President of Venezuela without winning the US election was not called “imposing political will by one person”.

    Typical policy. And politics, as you know, is a girl with low social responsibility.
    We wish Haftar success in unifying the country. It will be hard for him to do this. In Libya, since the time of the Ottoman Empire, many Turks live. Actually, Saraj is a Turk by nationality.

      It's time to do it, following the example of Egypt.
      How long can the Libyans endure "democratic" chaos in the country with this "government of popular consent" and their numerous international conferences and "round tables" ...

        Long live the king?

        Maybe the dictator Haftar is now for the torn by Western vultures of Libya and the best option.

        But Marshal Haftar is old ... He will have to look for a successor.

      Haftar is the same puppet, only not the USA, but Saudi Arabia and the UAE. I don’t understand why such a joy. He has been taking Tripoli for a year now.

        In recent weeks, negatively takes. The Turks, with the forces of the Syrians and the most motivated Libyans, carried out a dagger counterattack and made their way to Tunisia by cutting off the claw, now they repeat Queris on al-Watya a / b.

        The fact that it was a well-thought-out operation, says that next, as soon as the forces left for the deblockade, the second blow to the cut of the wedge in Tripoli took place. However, under Tarhuna stalled. Not enough strength.

        However, as a result, the route to Tunisia is functioning safely. Both in Tripoli and in the vicinity, the positions improved for the PNS. LNA has a headache with the deblockade of Queris-al-Watya. It is necessary to find strength, break through and hold, preferably along the highway.

          At the same time, there is not one news that Haftaru was imposed on the first date; they are not protecting the mental health of local cheers. And then they all waited for the marshal, about to take Tripoli. Funny wassat

          It is said that a delicate situation has developed in Tarhun. The fact is that on the side of Saraj many people from this city are fighting, and they are from the same tribe who defends the city on the side of the Hawtor. Therefore, they decided that it would decide somehow without shooting .

    In the US, said that "regret what happened"
    Mdya And they don’t regret the fact that they completely decoupled a completely successful country?
    And Marshal Haftar - yes, this is power. Gaddafi was just a colonel. However, the success of Libya in unification.

    We wish him success, but did he hurry to proclaim himself king? Let the Tripoli take and the Turks roll into a pancake. And so, indeed, more like Guaido. True, Guiado and his troops did not have that ...

      Arab bloggers today report that previously, the closest positions of the Havtor’s troops from the center of Tripoli were 11 kilometers. As a result of fighting in the last 2 weeks, they moved south from the city, 35 km from the center of Tripoli.

    Well, he announced ... And even Tripoli will take ... Barmaley will remain in place, there is nowhere to put them. Haftar does not have his own Kolyma to utilize them with benefit. Or shoot everyone, or eternal war. And for the "shoot" he will quickly be eaten. So the normal output is not yet visible. As in Syria, by the way.

    So, the American diplomatic mission in Libya said that Haftar is imposing his will, and his proclamation as head of state is "unilateral."
    When the Anglo-Saxons unilaterally created the United States, they did not take into account the will and desires of the peoples inhabiting the country. And what right does this state have how to live for other states. Probably everyone saw what kind of situation is going on with "Karon-19" in the places of settlement of the local population, this is just genocide that has been going on since the proclamation of US independence, and this is the so-called quasi-democracy in the American way.

    Well, what a serious uncle.
    Here, after all, how - there is a certain litmus test.
    You take a dozen pretenders to power, and it does not matter in which country and in whose elections. That is, for whom the mattresses and their mongrel will tear the bottom of their backs, those applicants in no case should be elected to the head of government. Everything is simple. Want chaos in the country, choose pro-American candidates .....

    Well done Erdogan Shkvar fearlessly on two fronts, gaining combat training of the army and tactical and strategic skill of the commanding staff. She is not afraid of anyone and nothing, unlike some, neither fish nor meat, which for six and a half years can not, by willful, decisive action, stop the killing of Russians in the Donbass. We have nothing to lose, except for the lousy sanctions invented by donkey Uncle Sam.

    And when for Venezuela the FSA was "unilaterally" and without taking into account the will of the people of the Bolivarian Republic, a president was appointed, why then "did they not regret"? belay

      The fact is that recently in Libya there was a council of tribal elders, of whom a little more than 300 representatives were present, who unequivocally expressed their support for Haftar and prepared a statement to the UN so that this organization would withdraw its recognition of the Government of National Accord led by Saraji. So Haftar claims to be superior, based on the opinion of the majority, but this fact has traditionally been caught between the eyes of the United States. hi

        Everything is equal to me, this is THEIR BUSINESS! Stripes will push for their own! Question, but ours is there ???
        Just stoke against whales, because we are against, is not always justified.
        If the marshal is supported by a large part of the population, then let him prove that they were not mistaken!
        It is possible / necessary to support at the political level, if everything is so.

    A funny situation ... Haftar, having recruited mercenaries from Sudan, Chad, from Nigeria, declares himself the Supreme Ruler of Libya .. Saraj, with the help of the Turks, the Syrian troops and with the support of Tunisia, Algeria and Italy, does the same thing ... Besides, they were both opponents of Gaddafi and led Libya to this state .. The question is, where are the Libyans themselves? And the Libyans are already tired of all this .. They are essentially on the drum who will be in power .. And the most interesting is that now peaceful Libya is not interesting to anyone .. for economic reasons ..

    Haftaru wish you success

    On September 1, 2011, Russia recognized the PNS as the only legitimate authority in Libya!
    Is your opinion at odds with the officialdom of your country or do you support terrorists?
    For one of the types of targeted terrorism is ---
    Ideologically defined, social - the goal is to fundamentally or partially change the economic or political system of the country, to draw public attention to any acute problem. Sometimes this type of terrorism is called revolutionary. An example of ideologically defined terrorism are the anarchist, Socialist-Revolutionary, fascist, European "left", the Red Terror, environmental terrorism, etc.
