Libya: rebellious general Haftar rushes to power

34
According to RIA "News"A spokesman for the law, Omar Bush, said that a group of armed men seized the building of the Libyan parliament in Tripoli on Sunday and attacked parliamentarians' offices, referring to the Reuters news agency.


It is noted that supporters of the rebellious General Khalifa Haftar, who wanted to arrest the Islamists, participated in the attack. Armed people set fire to the building of the Universal National Congress, blocking the adjacent streets. Congress members had time to leave the building.

It is also reported that on Monday, unidentified persons fired rockets at an air base in Benghazi. “The missiles were fired at the base, but there were no serious consequences,” said base commander Colonel Saad Verfally, adding that the Islamists had organized the attack.

It is worth recalling that last Friday, the forces controlled by General Haftar attacked the positions of the Islamist groups February 17 and Ansar Sharia, without notifying the current authorities of Tripoli. 79 people died in the clashes, more than 140 people were injured.

General Haftar was still in service with Gaddafi. At the beginning of the 1980s, he immigrated to the United States due to disagreements with the current regime. He returned to Benghazi in November 2011 after the start of the uprising. Later he entered the command of the newly formed armed forces, but in February 2014 of the year unexpectedly announced the suspension of the work of the provisional authorities and the parliament, which was regarded as a failed coup attempt.

      While the situation is shaky, the list of applicants for the main position will be very diverse.

    Libya is the most obvious, demonstrative example of American democracy. But people lived well, Gaddafi cherished and cherished every citizen, only guest workers were engaged in dirty work. Very sorry for the simple Lebanese. To a peaceful life im like walking through the Sahara request

        Exactly. And note the similarity: there the "revolution" was organized by the southern semi-literate tribes of the Skotolozhtsy. Pastoralists, sorry for the mess.

          And this is a quote from it:
          In one of his last addresses to the people, the leader of the Libyan Jamahiriya, Muammar Gaddafi, said:

          "You can not ask others to fight and die on your behalf to protect you. It is your responsibility as a person. ”

          This message was primarily addressed to its own people. That people, who, even being armed, en masse, preferred to sit at home, while the fatherland was spreading at the seams. These people had every opportunity to defend him, but few did. Why? For the very same reason that potential defenders of Donbass are sitting out now, they hoped that someone would decide everything without their participation.

          One-to-one - the situation in Donbass and Lugansk ...

    Libya: rebellious general Haftar rushes to power

    I remember that when Obama was asked: "Do you know that in Libya now (well, after the overthrow of Gaddafi) people are not living well?" he replied: "But the people of Libya now can decide their own destiny!" Well, the people decide ... And I suspect that the solution will not be found soon ...

    Everything is clear, he emigrated to the United States, then returned immediately after the uprising! The same type as our Nemtsov and Udaltsov with Navalny. Traitors!

    The people after the advent of American democracy begin to live regardless of Happiness and Well-being. And most importantly, people gain the right to self-determination! Only the people themselves decide what to do.

    Needless to say. As people say ... the holy place is empty ... ... the Americans probably scratch their turnips, the dictator has announced again. The dictator is better than the whole people are suffering. Their late dictator is much more human than the Amer’s frame.

    This is what I think! Looking at the events of recent years! On the politics of the USA and their president! It is believed that Obama imagines himself a god! Newfound mission! But if he considers himself superior to Jesus .... Isn't it time to crucify him? But, considering how many tears and grief he brought, he must be crucified face to the wall and upside down! To make it easier for his supporters to kiss him in the ass!

      Yes, Obama does not rule the country - he is a manager of the highest rank and everything, others rule, they are in demand. And as for their secret rituals, read books - your hair will stand on end! And I’d like to spit on them all at once ... Such an abomination.

    The general’s task is extremely simple, to provide American companies with on-site access to Libyan oil. The Americans fulfilled their promise, everything honorable Libyans - democracy, American corporations - oil. hi

    The Americans set fire to another hotbed of war. In peacetime on the planet, they feel bad. We need a counterbalance to extremists and CIA proteges. A moderate Muslim that the Muslim and other people of Libya can follow. We need a unifier and a collector of the land of Libya, and even the people divided by peoples and tribes will follow him.

    if in the skies of Libya you cannot see NATO aviation, that is, no one bothers Haftar to put pressure on the Islamists, that is, he does not bother him to take power, then this means "power to Haftar, oil to the West, and everyone else under the bench" because do not believe in fairy tales about democracy ...
