The war on Libya and Africa began 10 years ago on Feb. 15, 2011. Nine months later, the most prosperous country in Africa was devastated, masses of Libyans were killed, the Libyan leader Muammar Gadafi was brutally assassinated while US Secretary of State chortled “We came, we saw, he died.

With a new administration but the same old faces in power in Washington, it is important to understand how that terrible crime was accomplished and what it meant for Libya and Africa but also for the countries that took part in that war, particularl, the United States, Canada, France and the UK.

The answers can be found in Maxmilian Forte’s seminal SLOUCHING TOWARDS SIRTE, NATO’s War on Libya and Africa.
