The United States sent to the Mediterranean Sea landing ship in connection with the exacerbation of the situation in Libya

The United States sent a Bataan landing craft to the Mediterranean with thousands of marines aboard due to the worsening situation in Libya.

According to Pentagon officials on Tuesday, US troops can be used to ensure the security of the US Embassy in Tripoli and the evacuation of its personnel to their homeland.

According to some reports, Bataan, who participated in international military exercises with the armed forces of Jordan, on Tuesday passed through the Suez Canal from the Red to the Mediterranean Sea. Earlier, in connection with the exacerbation of the situation in Libya, the United States moved around the Marines 250 and several Osprey convertiplanes from its base in Spain to Sicily.

Extremists: General Haftar "awaits the fate of" Gaddafi

On May 27, the leader of the Benghazi-based Salafi extremist group Ansar al-Shari'a ("Supporters of Sharia") Mohammed al-Zahawi said that Libyans should dissociate themselves from the anti-Islamist campaign of retired General Khalifa Haftar, who is "waiting for the fate" of Muammar Gaddafi.

“Do not listen to those who are trying to split our ranks,” he pointed out, appealing to local tribes, first of all, to convince “their sons not to take the side of the insurgency.” The militant leader also accused Haftar of being a "agent of American intelligence."

Haftar launched the military operation "Dignity of Libya" on May 9 in Benghazi against radical Islamist groups. The troops loyal to him clashed with extremists terrorizing the local population, including the Ansar ash-Sharii militants. Over two days of fighting, over 16 people died and hundreds were injured.

We started the operation under the code name "Dignity of Libya", which shook not only our country, but the whole world. And now we want to exterminate all extremists and terrorists. We do not want any of the “brothers” to be on Libyan soil, and will not allow anyone from this group to remain in Libya. We will not back down until we finally deal with them, al-Qaeda or others, which are nothing but branches of the "brotherhood" under various names

General Khalifa Haftar

The Haftar initiative, which the central authorities blamed for the coup, found a wide response in the ranks of regular troops, semi-official armed detachments of ex-revolutionaries, a number of politicians, local tribes and eastern militias of Cyrenaica. Earlier, the general repeatedly stated that he did not recognize the General National Congress (interim parliament) that had lost its legitimacy and the new government approved by him under the leadership of Ahmed Maityg.

"We and our allies are determined to fight in a tyrant Haftar," said al-Zahaui. "If he is committed to this dirty war, he will open the gates of hell ...". The extremist also warned the United States against any intervention in the events taking place in Libya.

“I would like to remind the Americans about their defeats in Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia, because if they intervene, then something much worse awaits them,” he stressed. “It was America that convinced Haftar to draw our country into war and bloodshed.”


The Ansar al-Shariya group appeared after the victory of the so-called February 17 revolution and the end of the civil war that led to the overthrow and murder of Gaddafi. The leaders of this structure set themselves the goal of creating an "Islamic Emirate", positioning themselves as "defenders of Muslims", not recognizing "democracy, secular regimes and constitutions." Earlier, its leaders have already said that Haftar "declared war on Sharia and Islam."

The militants of the group, which Washington added to the lists of terrorist organizations, are accused of involvement in the attack on the US embassy in Benghazi September 11, which resulted in the death of United States Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three more Americans. Meanwhile, the "Ansars" categorically reject all accusations.

      the situation escalated in LIBI.And what does the United States have to do with it? Or does the Obama soul have a pain in the memory of their ancestors for Africa. But only the Bedouins and other Libyan tribes on x .. on the landing ships somewhere in the sea. They will still chop each other.

        Well, well, American proteges were pressed to the nail, the country is leaving, and they are splashing it with a whip. If the American landing landed, then it would remain there, US policy is already at everyone's throat.

          The operation "By the type of evacuation of Saigon" is just being worked out there. No DB and landings, let them cook in their Libya.

          Only Europe suffers, another Oil / Gas Alternative goes into the Civil War. Now either SA-UAE-Bahrain-Qatar - or Russia.

            It’s just the Americans who are confused, they need high prices for shale gas / oil in order to recoup their production and push for export

        How annoying is their belief in their strength, arrogance and exclusivity. Who are they fighting against everywhere? against the militias who, God forbid, have armored vehicles, and they themselves do not fight, so they will launch a rocket or plane. Local "meat" is used for ground operations. Just try to openly oppose us, so all their aircraft carriers will be sunk by submarines which they will not see until the launch of the torpedoes. Rockets and planes will shoot down the air defense and our infantry will be able to make them with sapper blades. And what is their strength, is that they beat the weak with someone else's hands ?!

    1000 soldier to evacuate several people from the embassy ...? It is also necessary to send an airborne regiment for the evacuation of embassy staff from Kiev ... well, or a BDK with marines.

    Well done, well done. While we are thinking and looking for legal and political justification for protecting our own in NEW RUSSIA, Americans are not obligated to explain anything to anyone. They always have a justification test tube with garbage for bombing Iraq, Yugoslav democracy-YOUNG democrats. They also have big debts and their problems, but they are not afraid to get into the impudent.

    The Americans first gave birth to the Libyan right-wing sector to overthrow Gaddafi. They nominated the Libyan Yarosh, some kind of general Haftar. Now they are forced to send a landing ship "Banana" to Libya to ensure the security of their embassy. And rightly they were told by the ringleader Zachaui: "Neither the Banana ship nor General Kaftan will help the Americans now." I had to think before that.
