The United States, which was founded upon winning a revolutionary war for independence against a decrepit and insane King George III of England, has become the world’s chief promoter of restoring monarchies in nations it has invaded. The latest attempt of monarchy restoration has come in the failed nation of Libya, which saw its legitimate government overthrown in 2011 as a result of NATO intervention in a civil war.
The civil strife in Libya was initiated by the US Central Intelligence Agency and non-state actors financed by non-governmental organizations that included George Soros’s various front groups, the US National Endowment for Democracy (NED), and the Turkish government of Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
The Obama administration is now advancing a proposal to restore the Libyan monarchy that was overthrown by Muammar Gaddafi in 1969. When Gaddafi ousted the aging and extremely corrupt King Idris in 1969, his revolution was hailed by the Libyan people. Gaddafi was able to use Libya’s oil wealth to bring one of the poorest nations in Africa into the 20th century.
The United States fancifully believes that if it places the relatively unknown Libyan crown prince, Mohammed al-Sanusi, on a restored Libyan throne, the Islamic State, which controls large coastal regions from central to eastern Libya, and other factions, including those led by a CIA-inserted Libyan warlord, General Khalifa Hifter, will all swear fealty to an American-inserted monarch. There is also the problem that Mohammed al-Sanusi is not the only pretender to the Libyan throne. He faces competition from his cousin, Prince Idris al-Sanusi, who has also laid a claim to the throne.
Libya is not the only case of the United States attempting to restore a monarchy in a Muslim nation it has invaded. After CIA-backed Afghan mujahideen defeated the Afghan socialist government of Najibullah in 1989, there was an attempt by US-backed Pashtun mujahideen forces to restore former King Mohammed Zahir Shah, overthrown in a republican coup in 1973, to the Afghan throne. After the US routed the Taliban in 2002, Zahir Shah returned to Afghanistan from exile in Italy to open the Loya Jirga, the traditional grand assembly of tribal and clan leaders.
