    It’ feels wonderful to see that refinery in control of the rebels. We had not seen one since the beginning of the uprise . I think the press is paid to be pessimistic sometimes. When the rebels take Tripoli the press is going to question if it is possible for Libya to have a democracy because they are at a stalemate.

    Go rebels, Go,

      so true.

      The ideas of a new democracy is always disturbing for the ones in power.

    The enemy has a choice to defend Zliten or Tripoli. If they defend Zliten they will not be a burden when the battle reaches Tripoli. So I am not so worried about Zliten falling in the hands of the rebels in fact that may be a distracting tactic that may favor the rebels.

  5. stop!…………………hammer time…………Do we have the coordination fro misirata to Zlitan, and with Nato to flank Gaggaffi and khamis on the coast……We do not want him going back to Tripoli……………..Losing zlitan withouta real fight, without diminishing the initiative will break the morale of Tripoli…….Not destroying historic sites will go a long way towards assuring credibility and stability during the upcoming period of change.
