The US has finally discovered whom to blame for the ongoing escalation of the conflict in Libya. On May 26, the US African Command (AFRICOM) claimed that Russia had deployed warplanes to Libya to support the Libyan National Army of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar. It said that Russia is expanding its “military footprint in Africa using government-supported mercenary groups like Wagner”. According to the US military, “If Russia seizes basing on Libya’s coast, the next logical step is they deploy permanent long-range anti-access area denial (A2AD) capabilities.” This, AFRICOM warned, “will create very real security concerns on Europe’s southern flank”. On top of this, it declared, as might be expected, that it is the Russians who are destabilizing the situation in the country; like there was no 2011 NATO invasion that destroyed Libyan statehood and threw the country into a state of permanent chaos.

The advocates of terrorism, warlords, human traffickers, public money robbers, al-Qaeda remnants and ISIS presented themselves as the protectors of the civil state, and huge sums were leaked from under the dialogue tables to purchase the conscience of influential political, human rights, and media actors, and the diplomacy of the Qatari and Brotherhood deals. In turn, Erdogan reaped the benefits. A blatant interference that challenges everyone and confirms for the millionth time that international legitimacy is nothing but a lie that destroys the homeland.
