In 2011, the Middle East suffered a reconfiguration of its political map through protests encouraged from abroad, and interventions disguised as aid. This series of events went down in history as the “Arab Spring.” However, the similarity with one of the most festive seasons of the year is only found in the nomenclature, because this geographical region has since been hit by continuous internal crises, resulting in a climate of permanent instability.
This is the situation experienced in Libya, a nation that for four decades had seen stability and progress under President Muammar Gaddafi, a leader who promoted social and economic development in this North African country.
What happened? A well-aimed formula of manipulation, lies and “humanitarian intervention,” designed by the United States government and supported by the European Union (EU), was applied against Libya, which sounds suspiciously familiar given the situation facing the Venezuelan people today.
