Libya's new despot, Khalifa Haftar, has vowed in a new speech to break up with the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA) that was signed in Morocco's Skhirat resort in December 2015.

"December is very near," Haftar said on Tuesday in a meeting with eastern tribesmen and elders, emphasizing the fact that he and his Dignity Operation forces will do actions to end the suffering of the people, hinting at toppling over the LPA and its UN-proposed government of Fayez Al-Sirraj.

"All these officials on the scene now will go down in the ash heap of history once we decide that enough is enough in Libya. Only the coming six months or even less will define what Libya would be like. We will act tough when we feel fit and we will never listen to any party." Haftar told the all-ears tribesmen on Friday.

Relevantly, the HoR member, Ziad Daghim, commented on the six-month ultimatum that was said by both Haftar and his spokesperson, Ahmed Al-Mismari, saying he would like to know who is exactly meant by the threat and why is it "six months" to take an action.

"Why not act now and end the suffering of the people if there are some solutions on the table? Why wait for December." Daghim added.

However, Haftar unveiled that efforts are underway to form a committee from all the Libyan cities to study and analyze all the current Libyan initiatives to put an end to the current unrest and suffering of citizens.

"We have liberated the oil facilities and all the money of the oil is going for the Central Bank of Libya and for foreign entities to the best interest of certain agendas in the current fight for power in the country instead of going to ordinary people standing in lines in front of banks." He remarked, saying they will act tougher than they ever did before to save Libya, according to his speech.

After vowing to end the LPA and Al-Sirraj government, the imaginary new autocrat also threatened for the hundredth time to invade Tripoli - and the whole western region - and salvage it from the current illegitimate entities that are troubling the daily lives of the citizens, according to his far-fetched speech.

"A force from western Libya, another from southern Libya particularly from Sabha and a third one from the eastern region will enter Tripoli." Haftar indicated.

Haftar has also vowed to meet Libyans with a fully prepared Libya army after he finishes his current military conflicts, which thus far destroyed most Benghazi, displaced thousands from the city and killed hundreds.

It is noteworthy that Haftar's post-February-revolution résumé includes another coup or attempt to topple over an established government in the country. On February 14, 2014, Haftar declared freezing the work and authorities of the General National Congress and its government as well as the constitutional declaration - a disguised coup against the then legitimate bodies - before the 2014 House of Representatives elections.
