US threatened to impose sanctions on LNA commander Khalifa Haftar

The United States has threatened to impose personal sanctions on the commander of the Libyan National Army, Khalifa Haftar. According to The Wall Street Journal, the reason for the imposition of the sanctions is the alleged obstruction of the supply of Libyan oil.


As the newspaper writes, information about the threat to impose sanctions against Haftar came from officials from the US presidential administration. The US is confident that they (sanctions) can hit the LNA commander hard, since he owns property in the United States: a ranch worth $ 185 in Virginia and housing worth $ 364. It is also noted that Haftar has American citizenship and previously had connections with the CIA.

According to Washington, LNA Haftara holds the largest oil field in Al-Shararah and a port that plays a key role in the supply of Libyan oil.

Washington calls on all parties in Libya to reject attempts to militarize the energy sector, divide the country's economic institutions and subordinate critical infrastructure to foreign interests

- said in a statement by the US State Department.

In turn, the LNA said that the oil fields are being blocked by local tribes who are opposed to the fact that all oil revenues go to Tripoli, where they are spent on arming units controlled by the PNS and Turkish mercenaries transferred from Syria.

      division of the country's economic institutions and subordination of the most important infrastructure to foreign interests
      That's the whole point of the collapse of Libya. Interestingly, besides the sanctions, the Americans have at least something left?

        It has always been like this, Haftar I hope in the USA does not keep his savings, etc.
        Let him transfer his family to Russia, too, otherwise the fate of Gaddafi is possible. hi

    Well, if once sold out it is very difficult to get off the hook in the future. Will Haftar have enough spirit and mind?

      He was actually threatened with dismissal. Interestingly, his family in the United States lives in service housing or their own?

      Also rightly, once betrayed. Already little trust .. But on the other hand I understood what "democracy" brought to his country and what is going on there now. After M. Gadafi, like a tyrant ..

        It seems like Haftar is connected with Gaddafi's brother. Boom hoping I figured it out.

          Well, Haftar studied in the USSR, yet he still has respect and gratitude to Russia.
          and ties .USA and France in Libya left only destruction and blood and now continue in the same spirit hi Let the people of Libya still decide what is closer to them .. But they already clearly remember Gaddafi with nostalgia ..

      Donkeys are already being launched, and more than one caravan is being launched, where the Russians are trying to negotiate with Haftar and restore peace.

    so the essence came out. The Americans scratched their turnips for a long time - what excuse to come up with. It seems that the tyrant and strangler of democracy is not suitable. Oppressor of European values ​​- the same minus. An encroachment on a legitimate government or a destroyer of the people's opposition - and then by. I had to cut the truth

    The United States carries democracy only where there are hydrocarbons. Therefore, I feel sorry for the Mongols.
    Steppe all around, grass all around. There are no hydrocarbons.
    There will be no democracy for the Mongolian people.
    Mongol wrote to the State Department, but was refused,
    "Find oil first. Well, at least gas."

    In order not to beat around the bush, look at which country until recently occupied the first place in the world in oil production. This is not Saudi Arabia. This is the USA. And they climbed to the first place not due to shale oil, which is being trumpeted, but due to the robbery of the oil wealth of Libya, Iraq, and now Syria, where they brought death, blood and suffering, while, as always, blaming their sins on others.

      Yes, there, probably, every day sitting in the field brings more than one million dollars. Just think of real estate. She is now unnecessary for him. As soon as it sticks itself into it, it will immediately roar to the island of Guam, tell the living space separately. For life.

    So the United States, invisibly present wherever it smells of polymers, has now quite visibly declared its interests. As a result, it is quite possible for the PNC to make sharp movements with the Turks, then Egypt and all other interested parties. All the more begins to stink of democracies, which means that peace will not come soon in those parts.
