A comprehensive analysis, this book examines all the justifications and myths about the war on Libya and methodically dismantles them. It delineates the documentary history of events, processes, and decisions that led up to the war while underscoring its resulting consequences. Arguing that NATO's war is part of a larger process of militarizing U.S. relations with Africa--which sees the development of the Pentagon's AFRICOM as being in competition with Pan-African initiative--this account shows that Western relations with a "rehabilitated" Libya were shaky at best, mired in distrust, and exhibiting a preference for regime change.
