Guy speaking on Al Jazeera English right now is talking about how most of the country is under protester control, and that the protests will be able to continue for months if need be because the Libyan people have stock piles of food. He said Libyans are used to living under sanctions and a poor, volatile economy so most families stockpile supplies.

Aetius Romulous wrote: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.

I really don't think you can refer to Gaddafi as a western backed dictator.

So when will some kind of intervention occur? It will be a slaughter there if help doesn't come soon.

Just wait until his business interests are fully revealed - he may have had greater support from the west than any of them.

I would expect to see military action later today, but solely to effect citizen evacuations in the first stage. The events on the ground may change that if they feel they have to act now against the regime. The idea was to get people out first, deal with the regime second. Events may be changing planning as we speak.

"As the prophet said, those that do not like their rulers should not raise their swords towards them, but wait for them to fall on their own, because those that raise arms against their rulers will face the wrath of Allah."

Bad paraphrasing I just heard from a translator on AJ English Live Stream.

There was a report on GLP (can't find the thread now) that Austrian forces rescued some of their citizens earlier.

Sounds like all hell is going to break loose today. I still worry about the possibility of chemical weapons being used in desperation.

That was definitely reported here because I remember reading it.
