  • Turkey Involved in Libya

    I just read a story about Turkey supporting the government of Libya against the rebels. This is the first that I've heard of it but it's been going on for a few months.

    Hopefully Turkey is able to bring some stability to the country. From what I understand it is a mess.

      Turkey, Italy, UK, France, Russia, Egypt, I'm probably forgetting a few, just about everybody with a stake there has "adopted" one or more factions in the conflict :

      With the support of more than 1,000 Russian mercenaries, as well as Sudanese militiamen, Haftar had appeared poised to enter the capital until Turkey escalated its intervention in support of the internationally-recognized government. Turkey sent in more armed drones, surface-to-air missile defense systems, naval frigates and thousands of allied Syrian militiamen. Its allies dealt Haftar’s forces a series of defeats culminating in mid-May in the capture of the strategic Watiya airbase southwest of the capital, putting Haftar on the back foot.
      What's interesting - from a military pov., is that the conflict seems to follow the WWII pattern, win battle, advance through empty desert untill supply line becomes stretched, then retreat after losing battle, repeat.

      Libya is one of those places where geography dictates tactical options, apparently.
