"We are going to discuss the situation in Libya so a few weeks ago, we had written about the one thousand Russian mercenaries that had arrived in country there, and the presence. Presence of unmarked MiG fighters, so I wanted to have Tony. Maybe you can set the stage for us. It's a very complicated battlespace that is emerging there with alliances that are very fluid, and what is really become a showcase or a testbed for a war of the future. So why don't you set up the security situation for us? And then we'll dig in and and talk about how the aircraft there are being used. Vive semis up. Pretty Fatty. That Jen. This harks back to the Arab spring, and the and the impact of that event across the Middle East and North Africa and also the fall of Colonel Gadhafi, and since then we've had this. On and off civil war, but now sort of developed into essentially two major sides who got the Libyan national? Army controlled by lethal halftime who made significant gains from his base in Benghazi sweeping across the country, and then we have the government of National Accord, which is a U N backed government which which? Controls Tripoli for a long time. Half ta basic swept across, took control of most of the oilfields on a much control of Libya, but then in recent months we've seen a resurgence of the genie's power, mainly, because it's backed by Turkish took a lot of effort into this campaign, and they've been fighting back, and we've seen sort of the GNA taking control of fields and towns across the area so particularly in the western half of the country the Libyan National Army Khalifa's army. has the backing of countries like the United. I M, Ritz Egypt and of course strain Russia, so it was sort of seeing this strange war. Complicated woman different sides. Some countries are undecided about which side to take. Which side is going to win. It's caught up in cobweb of mercenary groups and. Now introducing high levels of technology we're seeing. UAV's being used these Russian aircraft advance, Ground Base, defense systems, and also mercenary troops, being used in different ways and being bought in from different parts of of the Middle East to come and fight there. It's just it's become a little bit like Syria, but not quite the haphazard situation that has developed the. Brandon. Where is the US in this equation? A good question. It's The the best answer right now is that it's complicated. ostensibly the US does support the GNA because that is the internationally recognized UN backed. Government but It's important to remember that general huff. Tar is a creature of the United States in a sense He did spend eighteen years here in northern Virginia It said that he was working with the federal government for most of that time, if not all of that time and improving their understanding of events in North Africa during the latter years of the Gadhafi regime. So you know there have been a formal discussions between president. President, trump and half tar. They've actually spoken to one another there has there has been some limited at least diplomatic cooperation, but the US has stopped short of endorsing the as legitimate governments over the DNA so one more way Tony kind of had alluded to it a to it already one more way in which this is at all levels diplomatic, military, strategic, a very very fluid, dynamic, strange, complicated situation. That's unfolding there in Libya. Let's talk a little bit about the MiGs. We started to see satellite imagery of Russian aircraft landing on an airbase Dan. Can you bring us up to speed and give some detail about how they arrived in what happened to them after they came in? Yeah, so this is a the great. The great mystery of the conflict right now so in mid May satellite imagery showed that a MiG twenty nine had appeared at L. Giuffra. Airbase in central Libya and anyone that has access to the Internet can quickly find out. That Libya doesn't have MiG twenty nine fulcrum. So, where did this come from remarkably? Remarkably there had been some which essentially called rent a rumor intelligence, and the previous day's out MiG twenty nine, transiting from Russia to Syria, and then they just of stopped, and then a couple of days later. Oh, there it is! There's the MiG twenty nine in Libya and so people have been trying to piece I back, you know. Where did these come from? Who supplied them? And eventually on Africans in the US confirmed that they were rushing that they came from Russia, they flew through Iran and Syria and onwards syllabi. They went it. Was You know they say fourteen MiG twenty nine s you twenty fours. The mixture that is up for debate. There's been at least six twenty nine seen in Syria at the same time there was allegedly transiting. Their markings are painted over so these. Are you know I'm I'm going to be the first one to steal fray. Sorry guys the. Little Green jets. I got there first. So these. Are you know? Plausible deniability, whose are they really you know the most likely operated by Russians some people say that they're Belarusian. But they're almost certainly not. Unless secret training program kicks a long time to train foale. Gen fighter. These are not pilots in there. Almost certainly not Arab pilots in general. They were meant to tip the balance, but we haven't really seen them in action much so far. So what have you seen with them? Since and I understand, there are also some issue twenty fours in the region. Yeah so Brennan and I were talking about this. There's only been one confirmed action. They were used they hit a GNA convoy. Just recently that was transiting. Run the Oil Crescent, but mostly they seem to be kind of flying over top of their their bases, and they're just being held in reserve, almost a most satellite imagery of a Alqadi. That has the twenty fours in shelters. They haven't left. They arrived. They went into the shelters and everytime. Imagery passes over there, so they're not seeing not gone flying mission they just it was like a morale boost, and then they've stopped because I'm assuming losing one of the so soon into the conflict would probably be a PR move than when they arrived.

Russia has attacked Chechnya invaded Georgia Georgia and Ukraine and intervene in Syria to say nothing of lower level semi deniable operations. Where in Libya would have had reason to regard? Russia's offered to serve as a mediator in its ongoing civil war with an amount of suspicion and Libya might also have recognized however that the Western world has long preferred to regard the Libyan conflict from the other end of a barge pole and that as such they were somewhat stock options accordingly earlier this week the two sides in Libya's war.

Awake nights fretting over Libya his anguish perhaps half tiles flounce really is a serious snub to Russia's pure hearted desire to see Libya at peace a skeptical observer server and where Russia is concerned. It's usually via smart kind of observer to be might gently suggest that there is perhaps something else going on here half tiles house refusal to sign. The agreement for example might be a preplanned theatrical device designed to demonstrate that he's no mere Russian stooge and that therefore Russia is not responsible.

Ever having sent him last last week Putin vouchsafed any Russians fighting alongside halftime. Should there be any who knows at Cetera not representing Russia nor paid by Russia. A STAG STAG party and or it may be that Vladimir Putin doesn't really care about Libya all that much not any more than he really cares about Ukraine Syria which is to say he may care about Libya as he cares about Ukraine and Syria principally as a device with which he can surprise and annoy and disoriented the Western in world and by so doing impose the view that Russia remains power which must be reckoned with and or just make life stressful tedious for everyone else.

N. weapons embargo Sudarshan raga van covers North Africa for The Washington Post and recently returned from a reporting trip to Libya welcome glad to be here are you this started as a ground war but your reporting shows that that has changed how's the battle being fought now that's exactly right ari what we're seeing now is almost daily drone flights over Tripoli in other cities the seven catches on mounting from these drone strikes he's also war Jackson combat helicopters so this is become an aerial war although there is quite a bit of fighting on the ground especially in recent weeks on certain front lines the drones the war jets and in some cases the fighters on the ground are not Libyan so tell us about the role that foreign fighters and foreign weapons are playing that's correct and we've never seen such an internationalization of the Libyan conflict with what we're seeing now on the ground currently the biggest and most significant entry into the conflict I've been Russian mercenaries they belong to the walking or group which is a shadow we private army that is linked to the Kremlin and they start arriving on the front lines in September and what they brought was sophisticated weaponry and military expertise they are more disciplined than the Libyan militias were also seeing is mercenaries coming in from Chad and Sudan and all of these forces are basically on the side of the eastern commander Khalifa it's dark who launched the offensive on Tripoli the Libyan national army exactly it's a self described with the national army but in fact the army is pretty much a collection of eastern based malicious but the same time you also have foreign actors helping the U. N. installed triply government the government of national accord you do have Turkish Mildred visors and you have Turkish equipment and drones and armored vehicles that I've also enter the country to support to you an install government why are these major foreign powers so invested in what happens in Libya that's a very good question and it's also it's a complicated question on one hand you're in it for the money both Russia and Turkey have billions of dollars in contracts and construction contracts oil contracts that they had under division of mom okay Duffy you know who was ousted in killed during the two thousand eleven Arab spring a revolution another reason is also ideological what we're seeing in Libya is a new dividing the Middle East is putting Turkey and Qatar against do you rate the United Arab Emirates Saudi Arabia and Egypt now do you A. eastside here in Egypt are are very much concerned about Islamists taking over in Tripoli I think with the Muslim Brotherhood which is the organization that has been banned in Egypt and other middle eastern countries is a moderate Islamic group but it's considered by these countries as terrorists but Turkey and Qatar have supported the Muslim Brotherhood and that so that's another level of the conflict but it's primarily you know especially for Russia and Turkey it's very much geo political and economic the U. S. was very involved in getting Moammar Qaddafi out of power in two thousand eleven what role if any is the U. S. playing now well the Americans have been basically more or less accent and would be in a while they have made public statements encouraging both sides to stop the violence you know we get a ceasefire the actual policies on the ground have been basically absent you know and I've also sent mixed signals on one hand you have the state department saying that the war should and and urging board side stepped down especially after the Russian mercenaries presence had became clear the state department even call for half door himself to push back and stop the offensive but at the same time in April you had president trump on the phone call was have dark seemingly endorsing is offensive so you've got these mixed signals that are being sent by the United States and that has only embolden half star and has made it increasingly difficult to reach any kind of resolution said are somewhat of an of The Washington Post speaking with us on Skype thank you very much my pleasure a takeover of a wildlife refuge by armed militias was not the image that Harney county Oregon wanted to project to the world the Bundy family and other militia members occupied the mail here National Wildlife Refuge in that county in twenty sixteen local leaders were worried about how that standoff would affect the local economy and since then they have worked hard to shake the county's unwanted reputation as a haven for far right extremism as endures Kirk Sigler reports the town of burns the county seat is starting to bloom back in its heyday the Heinz lumber mill here employed hundreds of loggers lumber graders and forklift drivers like Loretta Hickey whenever it hind ship down a pretty much ruined our community the bottom fell out Harney county went from boasting organs highest per capita wages to its lowest the biggest share of our any county people work for the lumber mill he keep found other work and got to stay in her home town of burns but so many others had to leave especially when the mill finally closed for good about fifteen years ago its demise was blamed on tougher environmental laws that lead to fewer timber sales on public land cheaper Canadian lumber was also flooding the market and technology meant you just didn't need as many lawyers in the woods a lot of this context though was edited out of the story told by the Bundys here in January of twenty sixteen for the camo clad militiamen in their pickup storm the nearby male here National Wildlife Refuge standing on the frozen snow we sagebrush outside the illegally occupied refuge headquarters Ammon Bundy billed it as a protest over the federal government's control of public land in Harney county it is our goal to get the logger back to logging to get the rancher back to ranching the Bundys were acquitted the federal government is still here managing this land and the county is trying to move on but it's not easy no matter what when people come in and even visit move and they always talk about or ask about the occupation and what's going on at the chamber of commerce director Lola Johnson says the forty one day occupation had an ironic a fact burns Harney county was put on the map kind of just to say Hey look we're here and definitely tourism has gone up a lot more and the economy with it people are moving here because they like the rural life and the internet's better so they can telecommute an old neglected brick hotel downtown was gutted and turned into a boutique western themed lodge catering to bird watchers and hikers there's a hemp manufacture and the most talked about thing the old timber mill the Bundys blame the government for shutting its re opening it's been retrofitted to make alfalfa pellets for animal feed that's job pay inside is this man right right here Jerry Staley.

The indications are that since he's just moved to the outskirts of Tripoli is strength is pretty considerable. But on the other hand taking this capital city as another matter that is as possible that the UN might be able to engineers some sort of ceasefire, but doesn't take any father in the long term because you'll have this basic difference between the two rival groups in eastern and western Libya, Lee us foreign policy chief Federica mug Arini.

You have the overall problem, of course, that the present circumstances in Libya, which of now held while for eight years since two thousand eleven do follow on the ousting Gadhafi. The problem is it in the Gadhafi era. You had almost every normal democratic institution. Nowhere to be seen in Libya and other words country which govern governed very much from the center went that came apart with one has to be Frank about this the very heavy NATO intervention.
