French President Emmanuel Macron criticised the French and foreign intervention in Libya on 2011, speaking before the Assembly of People’s Representatives in Tunis on Thursday.

The French President criticised that France decided to “intervene from the outside” and “without having, for some time, a political project or a few projects for afterwards.”

He took a swing at Europe, the US and other nations that formed a coalition against the former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi saying that they bare an “indisputable” responsibility for thinking “that we could substitute the sovereignty of a population in order to decide for his future.”

He accused Europe and France of collectively plunging Libya “six years ago in anomie without being able to regulate the situation,” and that “the impact on Tunisia was direct.”

To conclude, Macron promised to put all of his energy to the purpose of achieving “political stability in Libya.”

In 2011, France was the first country to back the National Transitional Council when the West militarily intervened in the country, leading to tens of thousands of Libyan deaths and the country to break apart.

French aircraft were sent to Libya and conducted military strikes against Gaddafi’s forces in a move that was flagged by many nations as immature.

No, Macron, not ‘immature’, but a fully-fledged War Crime, a ‘Crime Against Peace’, and a ‘Crime Against Humanity’.
And your phoney ‘apology’ does not ring true – ‘To conclude, Macron promised to put all of his energy to the purpose of achieving “political stability in Libya.” is easily understood for what it is – a desire to reassert French dominance and French interests in Libya.

France is backing Haftar now against the Turks, Qatar, US and UK in Libya which is interesting. Macron has also made Teresa May pay for the refugee situation in Calais which is funny, as the UK has continually backed Misrata which is the ONLY entity in Libya doing the people trafficking. And which is the opposition of Haftar and France.

Interesting fact too : the most prominent fundamental Islam promoter in the EU, nobody else than Hassan al-Bana grandson in law Tariq Ramadan which is considered as being the voice of the Muslim Brotherhood by many, as been indicted for multiple rapes and sexual violences by French law and is now jailed, waiting for trial… Nevertheless, better not consider France alone… French and German intelligence services have merged for a while now. 23 EU countries have already decided to merge their armies as a single one and what you have taking place is Germany being the carrot while France is… Read more »
