    Re: Libya’s Islamist militia strike from the sky

    Here is some more info as to what ISIS in Libya has been up to.....they now hold two cities and most of Benghazi. They have also forced some of Ansar al Shariah to sign remittance and swear allegiance to the Islamic State.



    Libya, virtually a failed state in recent years, has succeeded in one way: It’s providing a perfect opportunity for ISIS to expand from Syria and Iraq to establish a strategic foothold closer to European shores.



    Extremists loyal to the group have taken control of two Libyan cities on the Mediterranean coast, have moved toward oil facilities and are slowly infiltrating the capital, Tripoli, and the second-largest city, Benghazi. They have siphoned off young recruits from rival militant groups linked to Al-Qaeda and in some places taken over those groups’ training camps, mosques and media networks.Notably, there appears to be strong coordination between the Libya branch and the group’s central leadership in Syria and Iraq. One of its top sheikhs, Bahraini Turki al-Binali, has visited the Libyan city of Sirte to preach: in 2013 and again at the end of last year, soon before it fell into the hands of the group’s supporters, according to a rival militia official based there. The official spoke on condition of anonymity for fear for his life.

    About 400 mostly Yemeni and Tunisian fighters are in Sirte, according to Libyan Interior Minister Omar al-Sinki. The militia official said ISIS fighters have set up headquarters in the city’s convention complex, the Ouagadougou Center, built by former dictator Moammar Gadhafi as a symbol of his secular regime’s aspirations to be a pan-African leader. An AP reporter who briefly visited Sirte Wednesday saw masked militants deployed along the main road linking the convention center to downtown. And the southern shore of Italy is about 660 kilometers away, a distance Libyans fleeing their country’s chaos regularly try to cross in rickety boats. Italy and France favor some sort of international action in Libya, while Egypt is pressing for a U.N.-backed coalition air campaign.

    Nothing like this was happening before Gaddafi was removed. There's an elephant in the corner.

    Doesn't ever take place if France doesn't file the Resolution in the UN and become the first to recognize the Libyan Rebels Officially. Without telling the US they were going to do it.

    So how do you get around that Monte?
