    the thowra should stop making human mountains in the frontline, in addition to that they must stop using cars in the frontline. you must CREATE millitery structure listen commanders, they need to have special forces which can operate behind the enemy line day and night such as usung high speed bouts in the sea. the thowra is becaming bloodier therfore you need to be strong. the thowra should be morally srong, the fighters should be devided in to units and spread wide area of the frontline not only the motorway, the thuwar remember you just wanted to change the leader, but gaddafi but you in that position fight against your army, but the libyan army nor the leader is ligitimate institution of the state of libya, therefore the thuwar are allowed to buy tanks attach helicopters, artelleries, multirocketloungers. the libyan oil revenue should be managed by the thuwar according to international low. the economical senctions should not be applied to the thuwars and also no-fly zone, in addition to that arms embargo also should not be applied to thuwar.
    the libyan thuwar should respect the international low, not killig the migrants who came to libya to wash your cars get little money and think he is merceneries, my be he is not, just build your courts, criminal justice system. take care the peace of the city under your controll .
    gaddafi will go soon or later no matter how many he kills and libya will not be the same.

  3. Thanks for reporting on libyan revolution. I have been following the events daily and I hope the rebel will succeed in toppling the dictatorship. In order to keep up the pace the rebels should receive help from west, and even from the egyptian army.

  4. Recent report on Al Jazeera sais that rebels have retaken Brega being under
    air attack.

    Al-Jazeera reports that Az-Zawiyah is under siege by government forces again. Is this accurate, or an error?

    See the 10:36PM report at http://blogs.aljazeera.net/live/africa/libya-live-blog-march-13

    I believe they must have meant Zawarah. Instead of Az-Zawiyah. They mentioned today that Zawarah was surrounded by tanks. It’s the next logical town for Gaddiffi to tackle.
