News Right Now: Trump, Turkey, and Tripoli
Welcome to today's episode: ‘Trump, Turkey and Tripoli’...
The USA's tactics have long been to either remove a government they don't want... or appoint and support agents to work against the recognised government, in order to achieve their own regional aims of strategic control, and even ‘protect’ the nations oil... all whilst subverting any outside players... and this is also the status quo today.
America’s long term vision for the entire Maghreb region and Libya, in particular, has seen a pragmatic shift in its choice of allies since the fall of Tripoli in 2011; but last week President Erdogan told state broadcasters TRT , “After our talks on the transition process in Libya, a new era can begin between Turkey and the U.S.” Making it all too obvious that the US has finally gained the upper hand over Europe in forming a unity government comprising western and eastern regions of Libya, and has stabilised the country by engaging Turkey in the conflict, to take the side of the government in Tripoli so as to fulfil America's strategic agenda, in preparation for the next phase.
The successful execution of Turkey's role has importantly contributed to marginalising Europe’s influence in the transition process, and despite the opposition leader General Haftar being cut down to size, by the Turkish military defeat.. he remains a loyal CIA asset, and will be used by America when he is next required... to expedite the formation of a unity government. Once again America has employed the services of Turkey and Russia to stabilize Libya, just as it used both powers to stabilize Syria and protect Assad’s rule.
As a result of this, America’s sphere of influence in the horn of Africa has grown... troublesome news for Europe, and especially for the UK, as its surrogates in Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco will be under relentless pressure to pro-American reforms, or risk regime change whereby America will offer no choice but to appoint over them, its own US agents.
Amidst the nations that have spearheaded the war on terror, Turkey has taken its place to protect and benefit its own interests like any other, whilst willingly entertaining the US’s notions of regional dominance. Since its role in Syria however, despite some differences with the US on the Kurdish issue, and the purchase of a Russian S-400 missile system... Turkey was complicit in facilitating US objectives by strategically enabling Assad and Russian forces against the rebels and Mujahideen.
Turkey’s most recent intervention in Libya, has seen a string of towns freed from the opposition forces of Russian backed ex CIA agent Khalifa Hattar and the destruction of several Russian made air defence systems under his control... this dramatically shifted the dynamics of the two warring factions, and reshaped the conflict in the favour of the UN recognised Al Sarraj government, at America’s behest. However, as well as its amicable relationship with the US and an open support for the Al Sarraj government, Turkey also allied with Russia, a strong advocate of the Libyan opposition Khalifa Hattar, in his bid to seize Tripoli from the Al Sarraj government.
Although Hattar was defeated outside Tripoli, there was clear evidence of collusion with Turkey, given the safe and silent withdrawal of the Russian mercenary group Wagner, who were assisting with the fighting in the area. Turkey’s political objectives with the US can be classed as little more than following orders to strategically subdue its rivals.
Notwithstanding the Turkish effort... the extent of the collusion and conspiracy between the global players is truly baffling, as they each support multiple parties, inside and outside of the Libyan conflict. Often in support of one another, but more often to subvert another power block and their equally insidious aims. As mentioned Turkey facilitates the US whilst appeasing Russia, and Russia supports the Hattar faction whilst recognising the UN approved Al Sarraj government.
Egypt and the UAE support Hattar and the Russians.. whilst simultaneously, as a rule, allying firmly with America... and France, Algeria, Italy and Chad desperately try to preserve any pockets of existing control and interests through a begrudging compliance with either Turkey or Russia. Unsurprisingly however, the most vile of players is the US... who whilst accepting to Al Sarraj government - facilitating and applauding the actions taken in its favour... it also appointed and backed, via Egypt, its own ex CIA asset, Khalifa Hattar, against the Russians, Turks and UN.
Turkey, is led by a man who feels no shame in Capitalizing on the spoils of another Muslim nation and its honourable civilians... who have been systematically devastated and pillaged by the open enemies of Islam for decades -.. and surely this is the most disgusting and shameful betrayal anyone can inflict. Erdogan may revel in his self orchestrated ‘Ertugrul ‘esque’ image of a defender of the Muslims and Islam... but the reality of his actions betray his fake image, and prove him to be a two-faced leader, colluding and fully compliant with the greedy western powers, like the many others that Muslims have come to recognise in this last century.
This reality is no different to the one Allah swt describes in a hadith when our beloved Prophet Muhammed (saw) said
«يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ، إِنَّ رَبَّكُمْ وَاحِدٌ، وَإِنَّ أَبَاكُمْ وَاحِدٌ، أَلا لا فَضْلَ لِعَرَبِيٍّ عَلَى عَجَمِيٍّ، وَلا لِعَجَمِيٍّ عَلَى عَرَبِيٍّ، وَلا أَحْمَرَ عَلَى أَسْوَدَ، وَلا أَسْوَدَ عَلَى أَحْمَرَ، إِلا بِالتَّقْوَى، إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِنْدَ اللهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ، أَلا هَلْ بَلَّغْتُ؟»، قَالُوا: بَلَى يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ، قَالَ: «فَلْيُبَلِّغِ الشَّاهِدُ الْغَائِبَ
'It is very close that different nations will invite one another against you, just as people seated around a platter of food invite one another to consume that food”. Someone asked the prophet saws, “will we be few in number that day”?... the Prophet (saw) said, “No you will be many but you will be like the scum on the waves. Allah will remove from the hearts of your enemies their fear, and Allah will cast in your hearts, wahn, meaning weakness”!. Someone asked what it means and he saws said... “the love of life, the Dunya and the fear of death”.
May Allah swt bring back the honour and strength of the Muslims under the shield of Islam and the second, promised, rightly guided Khilafah Rashida. Aameen!
