“We Came, We Saw, He Died” – Revisiting The Incredible Disaster That Is Libya

let’s reexamine the unmitigated nightmare that is Libya. A nightmare that Clinton and her interviewer laughed uncontrollably about creating.

From Reuters:

At least 47 people were killed on Thursday when Libya’s worst bomb attack since the fall of Muammar Gaddafi hit a police training center as hundreds of recruits gathered for a morning meeting.

No group immediately claimed the attack in the town of Zliten, but suicide blasts and car bombings have increased in Libya as Islamist militants have taken advantage of the North African country’s chaos to expand their presence.

Since a NATO-backed revolt ousted Gaddafi, Libya has slipped deeper into turmoil with two rival governments and a range of armed factions locked in a struggle for control of the OPEC state and its oil wealth.

In the chaos, Islamic State militants have grown in strength, taking over the city of Sirte and launching attacks on oilfields. Islamic State fighters this week attacked two major oil export terminals.

Western powers are pushing Libya’s factions to back a U.N.-brokered national unity government to join forces against Islamic State militants, but the agreement faces major resistance from several factions on the ground.

For more than a year, an armed faction called Libya Dawn has controlled Tripoli, setting up its own self-declared government, reinstating the former parliament and forcing the recognized government to operate in the east of the country.

Western officials say forming a united government would be the first step in Libya seeking international help to fight against Islamic State, including training for a new army and possible air strikes against militant targets.

US Ground Troops Deployed in Syria’s Aleppo

The US ground forces have been stationed in the
surrounding areas of Tishrin Dam Northeast of Aleppo province after the
Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) seized full control of the dam from the
ISIL nearly two weeks ago, media reports disclosed on Friday.

US troops are presently in control of the Tishrin Dam,” the Arabic
service of Deutsche Welle news channel quoted Syria’s Local Coordinating
Committees as saying on Friday.

This is the first US deployment of ground forces in Syria after crisis started in the country in March 2011.
The US deployment runs counter to President
Obama’s repeated claims that his country would have “no boots on the
ground” in Iraq and Syria.
On November 25, the Syrian Local Coordinating
Committees announced that the US officers and soldiers had entered the
town of Kobani and on December 22 they set up an operations room with
the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the town of Mesrin in the Northern
part of Aleppo province in a bid to take control of Tishrin Dam.
On December 26, the SDF seized control of Tishrin
Dam on the Euphrates river at the border of Raqqa and Aleppo provinces
and almost a dozen villages in the nearby regions in Northern Aleppo
Sources also said that US warplanes staged massive strikes on ISIL targets near the Dam.
