Libya descends into chaos. 53293.jpeg

Thank you NATO, another foreign policy disaster. The once-prosperous Libya, under Muammar al-Gaddafy enjoying the highest Human Development Index on the African Continent, has descended into chaos as rival gangs of militia fight each other and vow to destroy their rivals.

Thousands of foreign nationals are trapped inside the country and the fighting has become so severe that Tunisia has closed its main border with its neighbor to the East. Thousands of Libyan citizens and foreign nationals have been streaming across the Tunisian border in recent days and today, Tunisia closed the border to thousands of Egyptians fleeing Libya because they did not have visas. Elsewhere, Islamic militia have seized control of army bases and today claim to have overrun the city of Benghazi.

Misrata brigades began fighting Zintan brigades in early July, for control of the airport, where recent fighting has destroyed a large number of aircraft and set fire to three fuel depots, one of which is still burning.

Thank you NATO, another fine policy disaster.
