It's like a MAD Magazine cover that will never be.

This reminds me of guess the Pokémon foreign mercenary edition.

No word about Hillary Clinton and how the US destroyed that nation?

How is anyone worse than the US to the Libyan people?

I really do wonder what the plan was for Libya. There was really no reason to believe this entire mess wasn't someone's goal from the beginning, so what was it that was gained? Did Russia get a new warm port? Did someone want to try and call Gaddafi's bluff on his "pay me or I flood Europe with Africans" thing? Or is it just the standard neocon war machine thing?

I wonder why they think governments would just go totally hands-off?

Libya has been mired in chaos since a NATO-backed uprising removed longtime leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

Oh yeah, that.  Well at least NATO left them free to have slave markets!  How many countries get to just openly have those??

No one needs a plan, our media loves that stuff.  The only time the media treated Trump like an adult was when he bombed Syria.  Even MSNBC was like "maybe he's all growed up!"

That's a no-no on this site. All the carnage in the Middle East and North Africa had nothing to do with us. The world got bad in January, 2017. It got better in January, 2021. Go back to brunch.

Actually, Fark is one of the only places where anti-American nutballs who are so bottom of the horseshoe they sound like Republicans, can pretend that Hillary Clinton/Benghazi/Whaaargarbl and everything was wonderful and peachy keen under Gaddafi and it was a socialist paradise like Vuvuzela, which speaking of, they still blow now and again, and whaaaaaaaaaaah pay attention to meeeeee...

There may still be a few blackwater mercs in the mix.

Nah. It's people like you who are anti-American. You're so invested in your own worldview that you're willing to let your country go to shiat, do terrible things  all over the world, and set future generations up for future failure just to preserve your own feelings.

Saint Obama came to the rescue when France ran out of bombs.

Dictators keep a lid on things. Remove the dictator (without a plan) and you get Libya.

Academi. Don't forget that the name has been changed from Blackwater twice, in order to protect/forget the guilty, like the brother of the former Secretary of Education.
