It is actually in the national interests of France to have a stable N. Africa so all of those boat people will stop landing on their shores. When the Colonel was ready to slaughter thousands of people of Benghazi it would have created so many boat people Sarkozy was like hell no, this guy has to go. In so doing he managed to throw out all of the Chinese colonisation interests in the country and secure the contracts for Total's oil exploitation. The goal was to get a government stable enough to buy their weapons but it still hasn't happened yet. Haftar is that government.
Sarkozy doesn't care about North africa. The colonel used that threat very often against europeans. The war only made it real. The guys from Benghazi and the black africans are free to go on boats since he is dead.
The war was not in european interest. EU is beeaking against refugees if you haven't noticed. Italy is goig crazy because of that war's consequencies. French are hated by italians because of that.
Russia with that war won Italy as a support. Better than wining lybia and its not so huge oil reserves which is still in chaos.
Chinese can just impose taxes on europeans to get back that money. They produce everything that we buy in the west. And they are slowly moving their real pawns which are not some cheap dictators that can change their mind if payed enough.
Le Pen and the far right are also now the first political party here as she was on top at the first round of elections. Next elections she will be even more because Macron is a british made banker who destroys poor poeple.

Russia definitely does NOT
back Haftar. He is a French and Arab pawn.
They also welcomed him on Kuzntsov.
Maybe Russia will start an operation to protect the lybian gov against a crazy guy. So that they get a naval and air base and put a pawn themself. US also don't like him. Could be a race to who destroy him first.
