Were These People Really Worse Off Under Gaddafi?

Another nation in grave peril, brought to you to by the sociopathic secular elites of the United States and the Western nations, whose worldview is being proved over and over to be a total bankruptcy.

Via UK Reuters: “Western countries alarmed as Libya slides towards chaos.”

Western countries voiced concern on Thursday that tensions in Libya could slip out of control in the absence of a functioning political system, and they urged the government and rival factions to start talking.

Two-and-a-half years after the fall of former leader Muammar Gaddafi, the oil-rich North African state is struggling to contain violence between rival forces, with Islamist militants gaining an ever-stronger grip on the south of the country.

“The situation in Libya is very worrying,” French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told reporters on the margins of a conference in Rome to discuss the Libyan crisis.

He said the uncertain security position, especially in the south, worsened an unstable political situation which required Libyan political forces to come together to reach a solution.

“We are asking the Libyans to talk to each other and to find a stable solution,” he said.

The conference in Rome was overshadowed by the crisis in Ukraine, with a hectic round of bilateral talks at the margins culminating in a 40-minute meeting between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

But with violent disputes between rival tribal factions disrupting exports of Libyan oil, the lack of a stable political foundation is causing growing concern for energy-hungry western countries, several of which were involved in overthrowing the Gaddafi government.

Egypt, Libya, Ukraine, Afghanistan, Iraq–we go in, too-often sacrifice a bunch of brave heroes, and then leave the nation to burn. Brilliant.

Will they ever learn? Nah, it’s not their families losing their lives.
