I do have one honest question. Why is everyone asking the West to step in and create a no-fly zone (which I approve of), yet I hear no appeal to Libya’s fellow, and now free brothers in the Muslim nation of Egypt. They have a huge and modern air force that could certainly do the job. Something seems wrong here. I even agree with distrust of the West after years of their supporting dictators, but why is now-free Egypt so silent, and so unasked?
Good question, Jim. I was wondering the same thing. It also would be good training for the Egyptian air force.
good training? are you retarded? NO TO IMPERIALISM! NO TO INTERVENTIONISM AND CIA TERRORISM! FCK USA AND NATO!
No to commie twerps like you.
No to capitalist retards like you
Now that’s a really constructive comment.
You Communist Bastard
the people will unite and kill zionist-islamist-nazi terrorists like you
You commie wetback beaner. Stick an AK47 up your ass and pull the trigger. Join Marx and Stalin in the dustbin of history.
I have got another honest question: Do you, USA citizens, really believe that someone, in a clear mind, invites your army forces for “help”? Look the results of your “help” – countries driven to stone age, ruined economy for decades, people struggling to stay alive because of food, water, power and other shortages, no work, and there are still same problems with a bunch of new ones, created by your “humanitarians”. Are you as dumb as that?!?!? It is just plain imperialism of most devious and evil nature… Hitler would applaud to USA.
You’re probably right. We should have waited for Hitler and Tojo to ask us for help. Instead, arrogant as we are, we just stepped in and armed the forces of freedom to fight what we considered to be the good fight . . . you know, lend lease and all that. We even sent a few troops and stuff later on . . . that Normandy/Iwo Jima thing.
But I’m sure the average Afghan female would agree with you and wish we were gone . . . I look to the long contemporary history of democracy in action that epitomizes the Middle East to point the way for the rest of the world. A sad time indeed to see the likes of Bin Ali, Qadhafi, Mubarak, Salih, Asad, and–let’s not forget–Sadam and the Taliban, gone from the scene. Please, tell all those CIA agents to get off the streets of Damascus and go back to America! These evil USA plots must stop!
As to the Egyptians? The last thing they need in the middle of a fragile political transition that will make or break the whole revolution there is to become embroiled in a war with their neighbors. For a NFZ, the issue isn’t that they don’t want to as that they a.) lack the resources to launch massive airstrikes that must precede a NFZ b.) would look bad if they went in unilaterally and c.) don’t have enough quality aircraft to patrol the entire Libyan airspace (hundreds of jets, not to mention bombers and recon.) alone.
Thank you for this clear information.
And also for this website.
I wish you and your revolutionary-brothers and -sisters success!

Kalam.TV is a great citizen journalism site. Please encourage Libyan youth to post their videos and news on this site. Will be great to have it listed among links to news sites on this blog.
Thank you and may God protect you all.
While I believe Egypt does have the power to enforce NFZ, the only reason they are holding back is because Gaddafi has threatened to kill thousands of Egyptians in Libya if Egyptian army does intervene. So he’s using the million or so Egyptians in Libya as hostages.

In the Name of Allah the Compassionate the Merciful
You are look for, by any way, how to ignition fire between the brothers of Islam in Egypt and Libya. Therefore, the rebels in East of Libya they call Kufar and Atheist to support them to destroy their country. So, in Islam regulations not to be Muslim anymore and they are both will send directly without hesitation to the hell fire in the day of Judgements by Allah (Almighty). This is the final stage for everyone, who’s asking military support to destroy Muslim countries, e.g., Iraq, Afghanistan and thereafter LIBYA, by the peoples against Islamic community also, recognized in Islam (Colonial Crusade Aggression). In addition, Libyan is Islamic country had more than one and half Million memorized a holy Quran, play away from the Islam countries and try to find out how to resolve the local problems in Islamic country without ignition fire between them and stop dealing with Kufar/ or atheist, because never help you very of charge and the proper example in Islamic country is IRAQ.
Thank you for the explanation, rage boy.
I wish that the rebels in Libya will soon get what they want. Qaddafi is a big loser. killing his own people for being in power is the most stupidest thing i have ever seen. I have been in Libya, Qaddafi is killing his own people and misguiding them especially the ones in Tripoli. I call my friends and they tell me its alright now, fight is over, everything is back to perfect… just because they’re being shown the state TV… the fake news from the fake president to support his own damn cause… I hate Qaddafi… but I LOVE LIBYA
to AbdAllah Ben Khair: . Get used to a multi-cultural world. The vast majority are not Muslim. You believe what you believe. I believe what I believe. You, and nobody else, don’t tell me what to believe. I feel the act of proselytizing is evil. You’re an ignorant slob. Up yours.
Careful, if you piss him off he’ll explode.
LeadDog has been mapping Tripoli, Benghazi, Misrata, Sirt at street level and the road network for the country. We have posted all of our mapping online and can be accessed from this link: http://www.goleaddog.com/africa/libya.html Media outlets and map activists are encouraged to contact LeadDog Consulting for use of the mapping in their protest / conflict / reference mapping. We are happy to assist.
To c, in reference to AbdAllah Ben Khair.
First to c: Chill out dude! Seriously, there is no need and only causes more long term anger in yourself and your partner when you get vulgar.
Second to AbdAllah Ben Khair: Although I respect your belief in Allah (the merciful God).
And I do understand your emotional plight. I too was in a civil – unrest war (in South Africa), and I too was supporting the national (conservative) government to fight the rebels. I actually picked up a rifle and mortar. In the end when the rebels won (thank God for Nelson Mandela), for the first time our whole nation realized that we do not need to oppress other people, especially our fellow people; by disallowing them enjoyable freedoms and restricting their comfortable thoughts.
This Libyan civil war is about the rebels wanting these freedoms, freedoms that are not against Allah, but against your humble leader – Muʿammar al-Qaḏḏāfī.

New map showing positions of Gaddafi forces around Yefren:
This is really well done! Is this all based on eyewitness / scouts reports in the nafusa mountains. Also is there other google maps for other location?
some of these dudes are really furious….what are they so angry about….a dictator is getting discarded by his own people….about the 3rd or 4th one by my count. these millions of people want to be free in the fullest sense. they are willing to die for it. i applaud them and their courage. only one or two of these making comments are getting the big pictures of what is really happening in libya, syria, yemen, bahrain, egypt and other countries where the desire is seething right under the surface. i can feel it in empathy for them from far away….Quaddafi’s thug family (the government) has already been overthrown; he just doesn’t know it yet..
Sirya, Yemen, Bahrain, Egypt…why isn’t your loved NATO protecting the civilians in those places? oh right…
Sirya, Yemen, Bahrain, Egypt… why are other muslin countries not protecting civilians in those places??? why is it that only NATO cares enough to offer some level of protection???oh right… non NATO countries are too busy murdering their own citizens to care about others
what a bunch of b.s.! “only NATO cares enough to offer some level of protection” !!!!!! oh my, i would like some of that stuff that you using… Is NATO humanitarian organization, like Red Cross? No! Is it an “defensive” alliance? No. Offensive, aggressive? YES. Did NATO engage in illegal aggression on sovereign country? YES. Does it make them bunch of asset-thirsty criminals? YES, YES, YES! Is it possible to prosecute those criminals? NO!!!! Why? Because there is no court in the world that has both power and means, and, most significantly, will, to put on trial NATO criminals. They are too scared or corrupt to do so.
Do you honestly believe that NATO is there to help?
With western media under NATO “protection”, you have got brainwashed zombies, hailing plain murder and destruction as an “humanitarian success”.
Omg…THANK YOU! Finally another thinking human being! I applaud you sir….I really do.
Im glad I am not the only one who sees what these criminals are doing!
These courts won’t do jack about NATO & UN. The people, ourselves have to put them to the sword…if our simple minded breathen can’t think or see the light…then it just makes our plight to enlighten them just that much harder.
My name is Fredy and I am from NC.
Go west got me a bad mark and I received the , you misbehaved, treatment after I identified myself as Go West. Go West is a british band who released a single called “Call Me ” it seemed to me that is not allowed.
I guess , admin wants to avoid having me go after a guy called patriot (A Gaddafi Extremist ). It was easier for him to remove me that I am crazy about the rebels. Than to remove the so call patriot who started to impersonate me and even admin. But admin does not mind being impersonated by patriot.
I am responsible for impersonating the group GO WEST.
I was ready to type GO WEST again under my name again to confirm my thoughts.
I thought well, if Maddafi treated them that way what can I expect.
This is just a reminder that the mindset of the repressive Gaddafi regime will live for some time amongst many in Libya.
It may represent a way to have control over people that are rebellious.
Any way. I am happy to be posting here. I like most around here.
The US came in because the people of the us pushed for it.. I’m just wondering who these people are? I believe People are entitled to choose thier way of life. If the Lybian people can’t stand the leader, thier god given right ( for the non-believers I would say self-given right or self-empowering right) would be to leave Lybia. That would ensure saftey of your family and would take money and power from him. I know for some people that sounds completely insane, but if you think you can or you can’t your right!
I have a few friends from this region. Its eveident the issues are not going to come to an end any time soon. Last night at about 12 am US time the Lybian leader met with US forces in attemt to stop fighting and have us help Gaddaffi. US told him to stand down… Lets see what happens.
Egypt was in my opinion the real fire starter here. US people pushed our preisident to go in, and so it happened. the positive outcome happeneing from this created the push and feeling of power to go in and do the same for Lybia being they have issues with the US as well.. These are two diff people, from two diff cultures… I just pray the Lybian people get thier freedom from this ruleing terror.
If the US doesn’t mind it business in the future, all it’s doing is drain our money and the future of it’s own people… We are doing all this stuff for other countries while we are going broke! Poor regions are not going to come in and save us! I think it’s a joke and a waist of my hard earned money I pay into this joke of a government. These people who think we need to be in everyones business need to go there and do it them selfs. I would like to retire one day and hope when I become old I’ll still have some $ social security avalible. I really want to know who these people are who tell the president to do these things… Other elected officials? All about money and Lybia’s oils reserves? I think we need to re-think the US government…. Yet other countries think we are non-believers of a god and devils and murderers who use our power to push everyone else around… Thus terrorits attacks having a feeling they are for a greater good… Thats my opinion.
It makes me sad to hear people bad talking eachother on here… Its a forum of opinion about this fight, not your own selfish racist rants. I think all people are beautiful in thier own way. Its not everyone who will see that only the open and pure hearted. No one deserves to be treated this way.
Actual map about situation around Brega:
hi am new here,but i was touched by elic’s talk..i agree with u all the way….am from Zawia city in Libya i left the city 2 weeks ago ,Zawia city is one of the cites that stood and fought against Gaddiffy and his evil and sadly was captured by his troupes ,and you have no idea what we had been true and what my people in these city r going true now…i just want to say that we r Libyan back home all that we think about and wish for is to end this crisis as soon as possible to stop the bold lust..we did not ask for this we just had no choice, also we never wish it happen to any other country.
libyan now have no time to think about any other thoughts rather than how to stay alive to beat this killer and live in peace after him.
It is sad that innocent people have had to suffer in all of this
Mabrouk al shabab Libiy wa Eid Mubarak (sorry for my bad Arabic). I hope that this will be the best Eid ever, certainly for the last few decades. And I hope and pray now that the King Rat and his family are gone they are that the people of Libya can begin to rebuild a country and its institutions eviscerated under 42 years of his dictatorship and won’t allow anyone like him ever to take over or wreak havoc again.
Good luck to the people of Libya from a brother in Egypt.
Wow…some of you guys are just plain retarded. The leaders of the “Civilized” Worlds are supporting the terrorists under the table yet hold an open hatred for them. The best example is Obama…a major terrorists, guilty by support. The rebels in Libya are lucky the criminals of NATO and UN intervened. The terrorists in Libya or rebels as they still are while Gaddafi is still a threat, have support from the criminal leaders of UN and NATO.
The goverments of all these countries, America for one are over stepping their boundaries. If anything for the sake of the world to survive, every single government official needs to be tied, bound, gagged and thrown in a large pit of acid…or shot on Live TV so everyone can watch the criminal leaders of our time die.
Then maybe if american’s can actually think (which I highly doubt) rise up and put in power a system that actually works! Prehaps one that hasn’t been used….YET!
Some ppl are so stupid that they are iq must be the same as a fish..
Wake up havent you realize what is going on yet?
US-NATO are murdering the civilians on libya they put mercenerys on the ground cos the rebels are nothing a big 0 the rbeels aint doing nothing there, they just go in the empty citys after nato and his bloodthirsty mercenerys raping robbing killing.
All libya is with Ghaddafy i cant stand watching people posting and even beliving that nato is there for humanitarian reasons.. Nato is there for 2reason OILS+ To stop ghaddafh helping in africa and do his new money system for them something that west dont wont by any mean.
63thousends civilians are DEAD in libya and you still speaking about humanitarian rights? ghaddafi would have need a lifetime to kill 63k ppl not 6months. i wonder how many nato scums have died there? i hear something about 150 thousends but im notu sure about it the number seem 2big but iknow 1thing NATO IS GETTING OWND HARD in libya. Have you hear mr David Cameron said something about 200milion pounds spendingd? but until now he gave 2billions? in bombing civilians?
People wake up all the freaking western media are with them, they dont say many things they fabricating storys, and they trying to make you belive the trash they telling you, and belive me the one who belive them must be reall reall stupid cos you just cant hide that massacre even a retard can understand what is happening there.
Do you people even know that they cut theyr water lines? in sirty ppl dont have food and water they letting them on purpose to starve and die, they trying to make them surrender by any mean neccecery NATO IS WAR CRIMINAL but all the atheist savages murderes rapers sadistic scumbags will pay because GOD WRATH WILL BEFOLD UPON THEM AND THERE SHALL BE NO MERCY FOR THOSE. Around 600millions will die in the upcoming armaggedon war. Those mercenerys atheist beasts will be cleance and the world shall see great days for the next 30-40years until the antichrist upcoming.
;D Dont be blind search the truth realize the facts “WAKE UP TV FREAKS”
Ok get this right . OPEN YOUR EYES
“There’s tragedy in Bani Walid: the people are suffering, there is no food, there is no water,” she added. “In Sirte, there is another tragedy as well. They actually attack the city randomly. They say, ‘We cannot enter Sirte, because there are civilians and we don’t want to attack civilians.’ It is not true, they are attacking, bombing civilians randomly. They don’t care, all they care about is that Sirte is ‘liberated.’”
Two guys from the rebels attacked the home of a colonel,” Selma told RT by phone from the capital Tripoli. “A man – he is a colonel – he worked with the Libyan forces. They attacked his house and they killed the man in front of his sons’ eyes, just because he supported Colonel Gaddafi. Any house that has [Gaddafi’s] green flag – they just bomb it.”
anti-Gaddafi forces are shelling the city with everything they have at their disposal – tanks, artillery and Grad rockets – causing more death and destruction.
NTC commanders claim Gaddafi’s spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim, has been captured in Sirte. It is not clear how this was achieved since NTC forces have failed to capture the city. Despite repeated attempts, they have so far only managed to secure control of Sirte’s airport and have suffered large casualties from sniper fire.
We must keep on with the NATO mission until civilians are all protected and until this work is finished,” David Cameron told a joint news conference in Tripoli.
He is right: civilians are still being killed. But now that Gaddafi is virtually powerless, the people increasingly doing the killing are National Transitional Council forces, together with NATO, as they attack Bani Walid and other Gaddafi strongholds.
Makes me wonder,,,The British were bed partners with Gaddafi, Gaddafi was selling arms to the I.R.A. who were killing British soldiers with them, Now suddenly the British want to see Gaddafi ousted. As we’ve learned here in Northern Ireland over 32 years of conflict,,,DON’T TRUST THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT, They even lied to the British public about their role in Ireland. It seems they adapt to whatever the situation throws up. By the way two of the 9mm bullets supplied by that bastard Gaddafi to the I.R.A. were shot through me, I’d personally love to be the man to hang the tyrant.
As of right now. Libya is still losing civilians. It doesn’t matter about the oil,power or money. We have a dictator killing civilians as a last resort. We liberate each city to stop the killing. Thats whats in front of us. We must stand up and free the country first, then start political solutions on rebuilding the country.
To whom it may concern or to who ever is writing on this fantstic Libyan Youth blog…if you are not Libyan then i hardly belive you would understand us totaly.Therefore before you write any strange article i’d rather want a person to think twice.If a battle is going on in the last 2 cities in Sirt and Bani Walid ,then there is a reason, as its long lasting 6 weeks.Please remember that our heros whether live or lost should and only be considered LIBYAN PATRIOTS and MARTYRS.They are almost all young students and they pay with there own lives without spending a penny,so please all be grateful to our coragious future civilian soldiers,and when this is all over ,there will be a one huge event of glory in Libya .Dj Karim
