Following the major operations of the Libyan National Army (LNA) in the south and the liberation of the most important sites from criminal gangs and terrorist groups, there were various internal, regional, and global opinions and assessments of the situation.
In this article, I will try to briefly monitor what the decision-making centers see and what the Libyan officials – the ruling ones in particular – are supposed to do for the benefit of the Libyan people and their difficult path towards the country’s renaissance.
After every victory and progress made by the LNA in any region, whether east, central, or finally south of the country, we find regional and international media outlets and renowned research centers each analyzing the situation on its own way that suits the decision-maker of each of them.
If the army’s goal as seen by its leaders and officers is: securing Libyan territories and borders, expelling intruders, protecting the people, and saving the wealth that gangs are looting under the auspices of a fragile government dependent on the powers of evil.
Or the army has two goals; to defeat terrorism and to control oil wells and ports in parallel, according to an American research center.
Or anything else, as some Arab media outlets say, especially Aljazeera, all these issues are supposed to be of the Libyan people’s business only.
The Libyans are the only people entitled to determine how their life goes, safeguard their country, preserve its wealth, and end chaos and division that threaten the national unity of Libya.
We have many sad examples like Syria, Iraq, and Sudan which lost their civilizations thanks to the stupidity of those who led their oppressed people amidst a world of conflict and endless ambitions.
This opinion of mine may be seen by those specialized in international politics as an ideal emotional wish! If the Libyans are unable to unite and prevent all international interventions, then we should exploit them in a realistic way to get out with the least damage possible. We should not be turned into mere tools and sticks to strike each other, which threatens Libyan unity.
