An excerpt from, "Nigeria president warns of Libya 'time bomb'" news24, February 3, 2016:
"I must express our serious concern about the alarming situation in southern Libya which is becoming a strategic time bomb for Africa and indeed Europe," Buhari told MEPs in the French city of Strasbourg.An excerpt from, "US & NATO Should Stop Meddling in Mideast, Let Libyan Gov't Fight Terrorism" Sputnik, February 2, 2016:
"The ungoverned south of southern Libya has become a... arms bazaar which threatens the security of the Sahel region as well as the north Africa region and beyond.
Interviewed by Sputnik Arabic, Maj-Gen. Mousa, a professor of Strategy & National Security at the Nasser Military Academy in Cairo, complained that despite the fact that the US-led military effort against Daesh is now in its second year, the terrorist group "has only expanded and reinforced its existence in Iraq and Syria, and [spread] beyond these countries until it reached Libya –precisely, to the city of Sirte."
"Had the United States and NATO been serious and honest about the elimination of terrorism, they would have lifted military sanctions from the Libyan Army, which is responsible [for] the National Government in Libya, as well as fighting terrorism," the analyst suggested.
Instead, the analyst said, "the United States is a 'force' which leads to terrorism in the Middle East; its strategic goal is the segmentation of the Arab countries into small statelets," pushing "Muslim groups to become extremist groups," and thus working to challenge "the rule of the governments of Arab countries."
