ICYMI: Civil war in Libya? NATO’s freedom bombs have created a real geopolitical pickle (VIDEO)
Blowing in from the east is warlord General Khalifa Haftar who used to be a Gaddafi ally, then he wasn’t, then he went to live in the US near CIA HQ, and is now back trying to take power, with the backing of a whole range of allies. His opponent in Tripoli is the UN backed Government of National Accord which isn’t really a government, or national or in accord with anything.
Normally it would just be a case choosing a side, and bombing the other one, but as ICYMI discovers, it’s not that easy in Libya anymore.
