L’alibi libyen

Qui se séparerait en 3 états. Bien entendu aucun état démocratique occidental ne pleure sur le sort de l’ancienne république car les ressources pétrolières vont dans un sultanat particulier.

“The nation formerly known as Libya has split itself into three: the emirates of Fezzan, Cyrenaica, and Tripolitania”

As of today, the nation formerly known as Libya has split itself into the emirates of Fezzan, Cyrenaica, and Tripolitania: three failed states for the price of one intervention!

Or maybe only two of three will fail—after all, Cyrenaica, the initial defector, is also home to most of Libya’s oil reserves; formerly, the region generated about 80% of Libya’s total wealth. With so much at stake, amounting to the largest oil reserves in Africa, and the 5th largest on the planet, Tripoli cannot afford to allow this succession—but nor are they in a position to stop it.  These tensions may be compounded by the various outside powers vying for Libya’s oil rights, who may patronize various factions as part of their bid for these resources. All said, the country seems poised to descend back into civil war.


Par contre ceux qui ne sont pas d’accord ce sont les berbères qui entendent bien se faire entendre. Du coup ils bloquent le pipeline qui a bien besoin d’aller sur les côtes:

Members of Libya’s Berber minority cut off a gas pipeline in the western Jebel Nafussa area of the country, local sources said on Monday, to protest their marginalisation in the future constitution.

“Youths from Kabu, Al-Galaa, Jadu and Nalout (in western Jebel Nafussa) closed the main gas pipeline supplying Al-Ruwais, Zawiya and Misrata (electricity) stations,” on Sunday, said Abdullah Sleiman, vice-president of the Nalout town council.

The closure of the pipeline is a protest “against the non-inclusion in the constitution of the Amazigh (Berber) language,” said Sleiman, quoted by official news agency LANA.

The Libyan high national electoral commission fixed October as the limit for the submission of nominations for the constitutional commission, the body charged with drafting a new constitution for the country.

The Berber, Tebou and Tuareg minorities will only be given six seats out of 60, and said in July that they would boycott the election as a protest.

The three groups are calling for the inclusion of their languages and cultural and ethnic rights in the country’s future constitution.

The Berbers make up about 10 percent of Libya’s population. They were persecuted under dictator Moamer Kadhafi and continue to feel marginalised under the new regime even though they played a big role in the 2011 uprising that ousted the veteran leader.
