Haftar lost this war when his baksheeh deals failed. Bedouin politics only extends so far. Worse Haftar lost his negotiating position as a peace bringer but reaffirmed his historical role as a spoiler. But....
Haftar has backers like the UAE willing to break international laws and violate human rights. He also has access to borrowed funds. In the end The GNA is failing to up their game and still relies on the firepower of militias. Haftar may have lost but there is still no win here.
The dysfunctional bipolar govt system and two faced approach of meddling nations is what needs to be solved. Yes Haftar's plan failed and yes the GNA and the UN is drowning under the weight of being "legal" but ineffective in crushing Haftar or the militias. Where to next?
