Admittedly, it is overwhelming to decide what to blog about as bullies control the planet while the traditional peacekeepers stay away. Just announced today, Russia’s Putin and Turkey’s Erdogan have reached a cease fire agreement in their proxy war in Syria. The human crisis of death and displaced populations, spilling into worldwide proportion, seemingly controlled by two big world bullies, appears to be their own private chess game.
I want to blog about Libya as the world is befuddled with the contagion of the corona virus, hot spots of terrorism such as the Fulani's against Christians in Nigeria and 21st century proxywarfare proliferating that threaten the entire planet. Concurrently, natural disasters such as tornadoes in Nashville, Tennessee, volcanoes and floods, are not predictable like civil war but demand attention as they should.
Why is Libya my burning issue today? Perhaps because I consider the Libya National Army to be butchers of human flesh (the LNA is run by General Khalifa Haftar and his four sons who are United States citizens) and I believe in friends in Misrata that are with the U.N. recognized Government of National Accord (GNA is the interim government formed under a political agreement on December 15, 2015.) I am compelled to bring some facts to the attention of readers as it is beginning to mirror Syria: more genocide and refugees.
It’s difficult for fact finding in media reports, since the proxy players on the side of the genocidal LNA in Libya include not only important allies of the United States of America but also own many of the international news sites. When reading my links to this story, please use your judgement as to the veracity of the reports. I have tried my best here but am open to corrections.
Recently I was troubled by Turkey’s Erdogan jumping in to help the GNA in Libya. I tried to warn my friends that Erdogan cannot be trusted but desperation calls for strange bedfellows. I agreed to tone down my disdain for Erdrogan as a cutthroat Islamist pirate, as you can see by his manipulation of the Syrian refugee population but I can no longer keep quiet about Turkey's unworthiness to participate in Libya and their motives.
In violation of international arms embargo laws are United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, France, Egypt, Sudan, Chad, Turkey, (before they switched allegiance to GNA), Jordan, Russia and others. For example, France supports the LNA and has sold weapons to them that were purchased from USA, in violation of international arms embargo laws on Libya.

You know that >Selling weapons to rebels in Libya would violate the U.S.-France agreement and a U.N. arms embargo.— 🇮🇱 Naomi Litvin 🇺🇸 #Cult45 (@realNaomiLitvin) March 4, 2020
More complications ensue in Libya as Russia is playing both sides of the game. At first glance I thought Russia was on the side of GNA. But I see Russian backers of Haftar’s are involved as Putin seeks leverage over Europe using his involvement in Libya. Russian military advisers, supplies and equipment, and hundreds of mercenaries from a private company called “Wagner” are fighting on Haftar’s side.
In December of 2019 Qatar stated that they support GNA. They have never supplied arms to either side and are trying to push a political solution, according to my source within GNA.
In January 2020 Berlin hosted a summit about “What to do about Libya?” but no agreement was reached. The outside proxy players agreed on nothing.

How do we make sense of this chaos? Despite the apocalyptic visions of these world bullies we simply must continue, with prayers and hope.
