Turkey and the Tripoli regime claim “it ain’t so,” but it is. Turkey is shipping terrorists by the thousands to Libya to free that nation from what looks like a CIA backed coup.
In fact, every faction inside Libya is backed by a different American Deep State capo. That’s what gangsters are like it seems.
The US-backed Tripoli government and Trump is backing Haftar and his army of Russian mercenaries fighting the US-backed government (no, you can’t make stuff like this up) has “rented” thus far 2000 al Qaeda jihadists who had previously been fighting with and against ISIS, the US, Syria, Russia but always aligned to either Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Israel, one, two or all three, depending on what day of the week it is.
The terrorist jihadists are being paid $2000 a month, more than 4 times what they were receiving from Saudi Arabia and Israel while working with the White Helmets to murder Syrian civilians and will now, undoubtedly, gain a foothold for ISIS and al Qaeda inside Libya as they had in both Syria and Iraq.
The Erdogan regime has promised all the jihadists Turkish citizenship when they are finished in Libya.
Guardian: Turkey or will arrive imminently to fight on the battlefields of Libya, Syrian sources in all three countries have said, in an unprecedented development that threatens to further complicate the north African state’s intractable civil war.
The deployment came after Turkey agreed last month to come to the aid of the Libyan prime minister, Fayez al-Sarraj, who is backed by the UN, in the face of a months-long campaign by his rival, the warlord Khalifa Haftar.
Ankara has supported the Syrian opposition since the early days of the battle against the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, even as the original Free Syrian Army umbrella group grew weak and splintered because of infighting and the growth of Islamist elements within rebel ranks. (understatement) Turkey now uses some rebel fighters as proxies against Kurdish-led forces despite allegations of human rights abuses from watchdogs.”
Tripoli is supported by the US, part of it at least and a number of VT personnel as well who run the central bank among other things while Haftar is a fascinating guy, longtime CIA asset, an American citizen, supposedly supported by Russia, France, and the UAE.
A month ago, 3000 Sudanese joined Haftar’s forces though Sudan is nominally controlled by Washington.
If you know less, or perhaps nothing, after reading this, then you understand totally.
