Libyans oust Islamist Militias

#2
Nice to see 'Normal' Muslims getting rid of scum like this for once instead of fickle ones jumping on an Islamist band wagon.

Interesting to read they are fed up of militias dressed in Afghani style clothes telling them what to do.


BBC News - Libya: Islamist militia bases stormed in Benghazi
What a lot of crap!

Libya under democratic "government" that does not control anything, even Tripoli, is a mess of inter clan conflicts and outright wars!

And Bengazi is a centre of fighting for Kirenaica, which has nothing to do with "Libyans vs militants"! There is no such thing as "Libyans" as a single nation any more.
US ambassador was sacrificed by US government in order to have an excuse to interfere on a side of a so called "central Libyan government" to bring to heel Kirenaica.

Ordinary every day people (who happen to be Muslim) ****ing off a large number of extremist Muslims (who also happen to be peopl)e not on your agenda then?

Yep, -- "everyday Muslims vs extremists".

Whom do you think you were fighting against in Libya not long ago: "ordinary people" or "extremists"? Whom do you think you brought to power in what was Libya -- "ordinary people" or "extremists"?

What is it difficult for you to comprehend in a simple fact: former Libya is a mess of INTER-CLAN wars where everyone is fighting everyone else? Those who fight FOR independence of Kirenaica are the very same people whom "civilised international community" brought to power during their "civilised" aggression against Libya. Those who fight to PREVENT independence of Kirenaica are the very same people whom "civilised international community" brought to power during their "civilised" aggression against Libya. And somewhere in a middle of it there are those who fight against those who fight FOR independence of Kirenaica and those who fight to PREVENT independence of Kirenaica. And in between there are residual gangs of international "freedom fighters" who got stuck in former Libya and are now using their "freedom fighters" skills to make a living amid general lawlessness and chaos...

So, whom do you refer to as "ordinary Libyans" out of multitude of warring clans, political factions, gangs and chancers?

I understand when BBC and other disciples of Dr Goebbelse are simplifying facts; but I do not understand how MILITARY can be so blind to the obvious facts "on the ground"!

My "happiness" is neither here nor there.

British destroyed yet another sovereign nation in favour of extremist Islam. If that makes YOU happy...

Sounds remarkable similar doesn't it?

Do you really think the US has the inclination for an intervention? No, I think a few drone strikes and that's the US happy.

As of 13-th of this month "drones" were bombing Libyan Bengazi, Tobruk, Vadi Harish, Brega, Emirate Derna, Zintan and the whole region of Nafus, and Tripoli.

Well, it's a little more high tech than in 1986.

Will it be any the more effective one wonders?

And I don't mean in terms of killing people, but in actually making a difference to either local security or US Strategic interests.

And I'm sure Italy and the the southern EU would be most grateful for a Salafist adventure playground on our southern sea border.

Still bitter over the end of the Cold War Dommy?

Are you really THAT dim?

YOU HELP ADVANCEMENT OF MILITANT ISLAM. Do you not understand the implications of that?

Hardly a monolithic movement though is it?

I'm sure that the centrifugal forces at work will more than match that which keeps them together.

Sorry for the the people that have to live through it, but I think Islam may be going through a period of historical importance for its faith. Just as we are for our security interests.

But if you think messing around with militant Islam is a new pass time for the west.....

You are right, "militant Islam" is not a monolithic movement; but that probably makes it more destructive...

I know that messing around with militant Islam is nothing new for the West. I just can't understand cognitive dissonance of Western societies that cultivate Islamic militants, then declare war on them; and at the same time fight alongside them in Serbia, Libya, Syria against the powers that kept militants in-check; while getting indignant at the rise of radical Islamic ideas at home, but financing, arming, training and politically supporting the same radical Islamists in surrounding countries.

The bloody experts are in. We all best shut the fook up!

From what i have read and
heard from directly in there... Elements of radical malitia (muslim) were ousted that may have been tied to AQ...note MAY!

Reports are not QC yet.

If confirmed then good job but other reports say that the fighting in the start was AQ and civvies have re-taken.

Complex situation. As all civil wars insurgented by terrorists are.

Cracking term that, "cognitive dissonance".

It is a bit more like "NA NA NA NAH NAH I CAN'T HEAR YOU".

But do you expect joined up thinking from any one country? That said, not even Russia could keep it's block of flats from being blown up or theaters from being over-run. So really, no one system has a way forward here do we?

I'm all for smarter ways to make us safer, if anyone has one that doesn't involve some sort of global religious pogrom?
