That’s what happens when you worship Muslim Brotherhood and other – ahem – moderate jihadists, in order to get the – ahem -precious label of “UN-backed national accord government”.
None of them will accept to share power, but in the earlyest stage of the land grabbing – or “establishing democracy”, in westernese.
Haftar will harvest what West sowed.
