NYT: Washington is ready to launch a new military operation in Libya

American edition The New York Times writes that the United States and its closest allies are preparing to launch a military operation against the militants of the so-called Islamic State in Libya. The material states that support the United States will have Britain and France. The reason for this kind of publication in the American press was the statement by the head of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Dunford. The American general said that to overcome the IS in Libya "can only be through military intervention."

NYT: Washington is ready to launch a new military operation in Libya

In addition, Joseph Dunford said that he "is worried about the fact that the territories of Libya, controlled by the IG, are increasing in size." Apparently, in the Pentagon, planning an operation to “democratize” Libya and overthrow Muammar Gaddafi, they really could not predict that the chaos after the operation would cease to be controlled. Or the words of Dunford about his "concern" - another American bluff.

Earlier, White House spokesman Josh Ernest said that official Washington "does not rule out a military operation against ISI militants in Libya." At the same time, neither General Danfond nor the White House press secretary Ernest specified the exact dates for the commencement of the next invasion of Libya.

    It is necessary to squeeze out a donkey ... bov to Africa, then to hell!
    If only away from our borders!
    Let's "clean up" them in Syria, then we'll help them "clean up" in Africa!
    Again, there we will need a base ... Cyprus ... Egypt, next to it ...

      Why is the Nobel laureate of the world silent or doesn’t know what his subordinates want to do? A good king wants peace, and boyars are waging war in quiet places?

        And now the Nobel laureate is absolutely all in parallel. Lame duck can do almost anything he wants.

          But this is reflected in the rating of the party that he represents, on the future candidate from it. Or Obama became so large that he became above all this. stands above the battle of Republicans and Democrats and observes from the height of his greatness non-partisan Obama laughing

        Yes, he probably already has a "suitcase mood". He has already earned his presidential pension. Now he will sit down for a book of memoirs ... "What is it like to be the first niger-president ..."
        Him that fuss ... demobilization however.

      Africa is not our war. In Libya, there is no one to bet on, so as not to get dirty. After the overthrow of Gaddafi, control over the territories was divided between gangster governments that inside themselves are divided into zones controlled by local authorities. We do not have big business there, but risk our lives a soldier for the sake of alien oil rigs is not right.

        Yes, our people do not seem to be particularly eager to go there. But it is necessary to look after the amerikosy, so purely for the sake of order, so as not to relax. There are all sorts of articles in the press, on the topic - "America has once again got rid of it, this time in Libya", statements by the Foreign Ministry on the same topic, etc.

          The Pentagon will not untie the navel? They are going to fight in both Iraq and Syria - give them oil-bearing regions. Now there's Libya! And where will they find so many "coalitionists" - or will the terrorist attacks all over the EU take place "unexpectedly"? hi
          Putin is responsible for his words - he promised assistance in Afghanistan - so they climbed on his neck. Another in its place, for Georgia and Ukraine in Afghanistan, a second Vietnam would have arranged. And with Pentagon warriors, war rhetoric is increasingly slipping - Democrats with Obama need a victorious war. Yes, just quickly unlikely to succeed!

      May peace not be there for a very long time, ISIS sponsors will not allow this, chaos is beneficial, they will not allow Syria to turn around, they will expand in Libya, America overseas, and the caliphate and the war near Europe and, possibly, soon in the old woman herself! hi

    Pendosy care about their own profit. To transport oil from Libya is much closer than from the Persian Gulf. Nothing personal, only “economy”.

    Or Dunford's words about his "concern" are another American bluff.

    What analysts in the US are not enough to predict the situation? It seems to me that all these games are a real bluff, although it can be called other more accurate words that better explain this whole situation.

Churchill was right (he was still), he said that of all the known ways out of the problem, the Yankees choose the most stupid.

    More than once will regret Muammar Gaddafi, the only leader who was able to reconcile all the Berbero and Tuareg tribes, thanks to his charisma. Now they are going to fight against ISIS, they will win, but this will not stop tribal conflicts. In general - the Americans with the allies will have to fight with the sand of the great Sahara.

    Purely positive news! Yankistan is eager to draw the geyropu into the war in Libya. It is gratifying! They need to squeeze out all the Igilites from BV there as soon as possible (and everything goes to this) - let them have fun! If only it would be far away from our borders, and, again, there will be less time for throwing poop towards Russia.
    When blacks and Arabs, together with local geyropecy turn geyropu into flaming ruins - this will be the logical conclusion of all the processes initiated by degenerates.
    I hope we have enough reason not to get there ...

    They are fighting against ISIS ... In a Channel 1 report on the execution, Gaddafi just now drew attention to the ISIS flag, under which the "moderate Libyan opposition" was celebrating the "victory of democracy."

    Meanwhile, the jackals are becoming more active ... although they deny everything ...
    Turkish troops, with the support of equipment and heavy weapons, crossed the border near the Syrian province of Aleppo, reports Global Research with reference to Hawar News. Ankara denied the invasion, but local sources confirmed the information.

    Turkey has already begun to launch artillery strikes on the territory along the Syrian border. According to Stratfor, in this way Ankara is trying to weaken the protection of its enemies in order to successfully conduct a ground operation.

    Stratfor notes that Turkey’s alleged military operation could be directed against Kurdish groups.
