The crisis in Libya has also contributed to divisions among Arab powers, with the UAE and allies in the anti-Qatar bloc tending to back General Haftar. A restoration of the monarchy and possibly a partnership with Haftar would provide a renewed order in Libya in my view.

My fingers crossed for this to occur as I think this would mean for a clean break from the recent past.

Thanks for the preceding information concerning the Libyan monarchy.

However, I think that the statement in the Libyan Express that the individual in the article (Mohammed al-Senussi) is the grandson of King Idris, the last king of Libya, is a mistake. Mohammed is actually a grand-nephew of King Idris.

King Idris had no surviving children from his 5 wives. (He did have 5 sons and 1 daughter, all of whom died in infancy.) He was deposed in 1969 by military officer Muammar Qaddaffi, who overthrew the royal government in a coup d'etat. King Idris died (aged 94) in exile in 1983. His heir was his nephew, Crown Prince Hasan, who died in 1992. Mohammed al-Senussi (the individual whom I believe the article is about), is Hasan's son.

While recent events in Libya have been regrettable, I see no reason to mourn the departure from this world of a terrorist-sponsoring Third Worldist icon who funded the IRA on one hand and Islamic militants in the Philippines on the other. Like regimes such as Iran, ideological and religious consistency play no part in the funding of terrorist movements.

If you're not for monarchism, why the hell are you here in the first place? You're a troll who came to the wrong place looking for a fight.

Here's an early example of what I believe to be Vasily's technique, dating all the way back to 1964:

Well, I couldn’t leave
Unless the old man chased me out
’Cause I’d already promised
That I’d milk his cows
I had to say something
To strike him very weird
So I yelled out
“I like Fidel Castro and his beard”
Rita looked offended
But she got out of the way
As he came charging down the stairs
Sayin’, “What’s that I heard you say?”

From Bob Dylan's Motorpsycho Nitemare.
