Libya today is arguably closer to a full blown civil war than at any time since the fall of Muammar Ghaddafi in 2011. A renegade general named Khalifa Haftar is on the march, seeking to upend an Islamist controlled parliament. Who is this man? What does he want? And why are conditions ripe for a civil war?
