  1. 17:46 Reuters Revolutionaries reported that Gaddafi’s forces in Tiji and Badr – effectively cut off from Tripoli since the capture of Zawiya – abandoned the two towns and fled to the Tunisian border.
    Very good……………..how about Zuwarah……..How about the Tunisian reception…..how do we go about not only assuring their containment, but protecting anti-gaddafi people that may also be near border post….Have they been forced to lay down their arms…..Or does Tunisia now absorb them as an organized force…………………………

  2. The question is one of Gaddaffi forces from Tiji going through Tunisia to rally with forces from Zurawah for a counteroffensive…………….Let me check my map again(hint).

  3. rebel field commander in Zawiya, Osama Arusi, said the fighting had shut down an oil pipeline to the capital, where a third of Libya’s six million people live.
    The rebels have surrounded the refinery, which supplies oil and gas to the capital.
    “The pipeline from Zawiya to Tripoli has been switched off,” Arusi told the Associated Press news agency. “The man who is responsible for switching the pipeline off said it is not working.”
    A plan to take the black market gas routes is needed right away.You want them totally demobilized on your back door, and you have to prepare for contingincies…….Letting a gas shortage work some magic is not really a bad plan, but not too long, you don’t want him leaving boobytraps and snipers every gd-amn where when you do get ready to go at him……………….Probing the enemy at zlitan…….No way he could maintain that force intact, when so much is at risk on his backdoor……..Probing!……..lets get them to show themselves to the night sky………
