Why not?but in the post WW2 situation would probably have not been viable.
And Italy can't ask France and/or Britain for assistance in holding onto their North African possessions?It did, Spain lost much of its African territory and only held what it still has with French assistance (two minor cities). Morocco still claims these cities. Morocco was still negotiating with Spain for territory into the 70's, when they joined NATO, this made military action impractical and unwise for minor territory. Libya would be a different story, longer distances, larger cities with less historic connection.
