In abrupt policy reversal Trump endorses Libyan militia leader, Khalifa Hifter

Mr. Trump issued a public endorsement of the Libyan militia leader Khalifa Hifter in abrupt policy reversal after Mr Trump called to discuss counter-terrorism efforts with him. Mr Hifter’s forces launched an attack on Tripoli two weeks ago in an attempt to overthrow the UN backed government. The Trump administration had condemned the attack and demanded it cease a few days after it began.

Well given that Obama and the EU willfully destroyed a stable if repugnant regime, common sense dictates installing the least offensive strongman until a transition to democracy can happen. When we give the Muslim world the vote they just elect terrorists and fanatics.

It makes sense. Hifter is a secularist and a strong military leader with the ability to pacify the country. His politics is very similar to al-Sisi's in Egypt who also endorses Hifter. This would put the entire region from Egypt to Libya under stable secular and pro-American regimes. A new secular Islam starting from there could be the end of all Islamist movements in North-Africa.
