7/10/20 Bas Spliet on the American War that Destroyed Libya

by | Jul 15, 2020 | Interviews

Bas Spliet is back to discuss the disaster that was America and the UN’s involvement in Libya after 2011’s Arab Spring. Spliet reminds us that Libya was once one of the wealthiest countries in north Africa, ruled by a secular dictator with relative liberty and prosperity. After the Obama administration decided to begin a bombing campaign there in support of a regime change, however, the country quickly disintegrated into one of the most chaotic and violent places in the world. Today there are open air slave markets and 30% of the population has fled the country. As usual, this intervention was sold in the name of humanitarian intervention and the need to stop a brutal dictator. But Americans should know by now that a bad situation can—and very often does—become much worse after the U.S. military gets involved.
