People are being killed in the protests in Iraq today. Gov't is shooting them.
At least 5 dead. Not a word about Iraq on the news channels.

While it's bad, it's not on the level of Libya yet, so I wouldn't expect it to be mentioned much.

Yesterday an austrian support team of foreign ministry people and Cobra (austrian special forces) got 15 austrians out of Lybia in a convoi and into Tunisia passing the city of Zawiya.
All top secret of course. So it seems some countries already have boots on the ground.

Here's a link - in german, but you can see the route the convoi took.
Must have been harrowing because along the route various factions were in control
and heavy fighting in Zawiya.

Another article states that a small airport near Tripoli has been locked off.
Speculation they might use it as last escape be for Gadaffi.

Based on what was said earlier in thread, the rebels are preparing for an attack on Tripoli. If they do that it will be bloody, and not guaranteed to succeed, but a no fly zone will certainly help them.

LIBYA, 7:30 a.m. ET, 2:30 p.m. local] A ferry chartered by the United States left a port in Libya on Friday, a spokesman for the company operating the ferry said. The ferry has at least 285 people on board, mostly Americans who have fled the chaos in Libya, the U.S. government has said. It's bound for Malta.

Do we know about how large the forces still loyal to Gadaffi are? How many mercenaries he has brought into the country?

IMPORTANT

Apologies for the lack of avatars everyone. We have confirmation now that this is a bug introduced into the automatic forum update. The company forumotion who produce this forum issued a live update today.

Unfortunately that update has errors. They are working to fix it now. This affects many hundreds of forums using the same software as us

That doesn't sound good if it's true.

As our anger increases at the lack of resolve by wealthy, powerful western nations, it is best to remind ourselves that the former Middle East - one of sleepy useful idiots chock full of angry Muslim terrorists held in check by western backed dictators - is not one they are happy about relinquishing. Driven solely by local political interests and a constant drumbeat of fear of the "Mooslim", no western leader has any incentive to act decisively to usher in a new era of global respect and understanding.

But change is picking up speed as desperately as the west attempts to slow it down. Western nations are trapped between a failed policy of fear and repression, and a steamroller of events for which they are completely unprepared.

It is certain now that Libyans - and every other Middle Eastern people yearning to be free - are on their own. Far from stamping out change, the carnage and atrocity that is Libya will only serve to embolden others, and remove forever from western dictators the final weapon they have in their quiver - horrific violence. It is clear now that the harder you swat the nest, the angrier the bees become.

Rant over.
