If there is one victory we can claim here on the internet, it is that we have forever removed the ability of government to lie to their people with impunity. Absent that, there will be fewer wars.

The Russian authorities are in talks to establish military bases in Libya, Bloomberg reports.
According to the report, the deal has been negotiated following a meeting between Russian President, Vladimir Putin, and Khalifa Haftar, Libya’s eastern military commander, in Moscow in late September 2023.
The report says Russia may be given docking rights for its warships, most likely at the port city of Tobruk, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
