The nation of Libya is already under heavy turmoil, with a civil war already under its belt. But what’s coming next, unfortunately, is not peace, not even neutrality.
Islamic commander Salah Badi, a former lawmaker from the coastal city of Misurata, called the shots on Libya’s main international airport. His militia continues to wreck havoc across the cities of Libya, drawing the attention of the country’s many fractious militias, the towns, and the tribes.
Even in Benghazi, Libya’s second-largest city, the airport has been closed due to the fighting. This heated conflict spreading throughout the nation is foreboding a possible civil war. Tripoli, the capital of Libya, is now under Islamic control; the battles have pounded the city into rubble. Hundreds of people have died and storage tanks containing 90 million liters of fuel have burned incessantly. Blackouts last for 12 hours or more at a time, and black clouds shroud the city.
What must prime minister Abdullah al-Thani do? Only the nationalist and tribal militias can even attempt to recapture the capital. The United States and the United Nations are both attempting to organize a truce, but NATO has it’s schedules booked with Gaza and Ukraine.
Something must be done before the entire Eastern world is engulfed in the flames of war!
