"Backed by the UN, the US and its allies insist that Libya must remain just as it was when it was created by the Western powers after World War II. Yet 'Libya' has no historical basis for its existence: even its name is an invention of its Italian conquerors, imposed at the turn of the twentieth century. Left to themselves, both the eastern and western regions would soon deal with a supposedly expanding Islamic State presence. But that isn't permitted: the 'Libyans' must follow the Western prescription of 'unity' at all costs. After all, it's easier to control one government than two: and who will make sure those lucrative oil contracts are handed out to the right Western companies?" (01/27/16)
