Is the primary cause of the Libyan civil war the United States' prior interventions?

  • Because America knew she would definately gain from the war

    This is obvious because,America always gain wherever there is a war in any country.Especially,in any of the oil rich countries.She sells weapons to to both the government and the rebels.So that,if the government is victory over the rebels the government pay all the dept.If the rebels are victory vise-vasa.America gain

  • Primary cause of the Libyan civil war

    I personally think that the primary cause of the Libyan civil war was in the United States' prior interventions. I personally think that the primary cause of the Libyan civil war has had an affect on the United States. I personally think that has affected many families as well as friends.

  • Not Primary but contributing

    It certainly was an influence on the Libyan Civil War. Yet the Civil War in Libya can be compared to the Civil War in the United States in the 19th Century. Just as assuming that the Civil war was not just about freeing the slaves, but about tariffs, the Libyan Civil war has different reasons.

  • They were there own conflict

    Not every conflict in the world is due to the US or the West, and people all over the world were very capable of getting into their own conflicts in their own time. Libya's dictator Gaddafi had been opressing his people violently for decades and a combination of nearby protests and economic strain led to it.

  • Muammar Gaddafi's Despotic Reign Caused Civil War

    The Libyan civil war was caused by Muammar Gaddafi's despotic reign. He instituted a coup in the 1970s and then went crazy after that. There was too much disparity between the haves and have nots in Libya. When the people had enough, they rebelled and eventually killed Gaddafi. The United States might have had a small hand in Gaddafi's rise, but in the end it is the responsibility of the Libyan people to take matters into their own hands.

  • It was the Arab spring.

    No, the primary cause of the Libyan civil war was not the United States' prior interventions, because the Libyans just wanted to be a part of the Arab spring. The United States cannot be blamed for every problem in any other country that develops. It is also a good reason to refrain from intervening. But it cannot be said the US intervention caused discontent years later.
