The tense relations between Libya and the USA
The recent assassination of Chris Stevens, an ambassador of the United States of America in Libya, was a reaction to an american video, which portrayed Prophet Muhammad as a fraud and compared the Islamic religion to cancer.
However, the relationship between these two countries has a further history. Do you know anything more specific about their previous conflicts? Was this assassination a trigger for something bigger? Or was it only supposed to mask the real issues of the Arab world?
