Ansar al-Sharia, the terrorist group responsible for the 2012 attacks on the US consulate, has declared the Libyan city of Benghazi an Islamic
Emirate, after allegedly seizing control. The claims are disputed by Khalifa Haftar, a retired army general, who says that the National Libyan Army
still retains control of the city, despite the withdrawal of its troops from strategic positions.
While there are disputes regarding the legitimacy of both stories, it is obvious that the situation is still a very bad one. Islamist militants have
been active in the country since the revolution that brought down Gaddafi, and they are constantly gaining in power.
I think it is safe to say that the USA, and its allies, have royally screwed up in the Middle-East and Africa. I mean, how much further damage does
the USA and its allies want to do to the regions? First, an Islamic caliphate, and now an alleged emirate. Both established by terrorists as a result
of international incompetence and meddling.
As for Libya, they should never have killed Gaddafi. Libya has turned from a great and stable African state, to a miserable and unstable one.
