The Address | Benghazi – Libya
Turkey, America’s erstwhile NATO ally, is now arming America’s enemies in Libya, a flagrant violation of the 2011 United Nations arms embargo, said an analysis for the American news site Human Events.
The clearest evidence of Turkey’s violation of U.N. embargoes came in the hold of a Turkish-crewed ship named “Amazon.” It delivered some 20 Turkish-made armored vehicles, known as “MRAPs,” the military news website South Front reported. A local blogger photographed the armored vehicles on the dock.
Turkey supports the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA). Qatar and, seemingly, Iran also back it. If it prevails, its government will impose Sharia law, corrupt the press, socialize the economy, and open a safe haven for terrorists, the analysis explained.
America backs the Libyan National Army (LNA), led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, whose win means basic human rights, rule of law, a semi-free press, and regular elections, and he is considered a new ally in the war on terror, it added.
America’s security is often strengthened by such hard compromises with its principles, leaving many Americans uneasy. This is an alliance that makes sense. Mainly because all of the realistic alternatives are far worse, according to the analysis.
