Since before last year’s Libyan Civil War was even properly finished, there was already talk about how long the rag-tag group of defectors, Islamists and NATO-backed secularists that made up the rebellion could stay together.
It seems like those tenuous pacts are flying apart as the Islamists, virtually entirely cut out of the government at the behest of NATO, are talking up arms and attacking several key spots nationwide, including several mosques and an historic religious school seen as unfriendly to their faction.
Some factions of Islamists have been targeting Sufi mosques and desecrating Sufi shrines all week, leading to Western calls for a crackdown on them to protect the “transition” to the new regime.
This new civil war could be even uglier than the last one, as the East-West divide that defined the 2011 war doesn’t exist, and there are no obvious territorial claims to be drawn between the new Western-backed regime and the Islamists, who hold significant sway in most major cities nationwide.

Democracy is a universal matter, but that doesn't mean that you can throw in all kind of junk hoping for the best, unless you don't know about democracy and what you know is a falsified part of the matter.
Thats how NATO countries and US democracy works, there is no such functioning mechanism behind all that talks about democracy, they just do it because they don't know any better.
Good to see that things are going well for the US in Libya. Of course, no matter whatever happens, how many innocents die, how much chaos they create, EXXON's interests are well protected. So, let 'em all kill themselves and let their god sort 'em out.
