BENGHAZI, LIBYA - Libyan soldiers and paramilitary forces loyal to Moammar Gaddafi attempted Tuesday to retake territory that has been seized by rebels, but neither side appeared to gain ground, according to accounts of the fighting from residents and opposition officials.Moammar's also got a strategic problem.
WASHINGTON — Obama administration officials held talks on Sunday with European and other allied governments as they readied plans for the possible imposition of a no-fly zone over Libya to prevent further killings of civilians by forces loyal to Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi.If countries band together to enforce a no-fly zone that denies Moammar his air assets, he loses the battle. As long as the rebels can get logistics, bullets and beans, then the loss of Qadiffi's air force may prove fatal to his regime.
Moammar's also got political problems.
(Reuters) - The staff of Libya's mission to the United Nations declared allegiance to the people of Libya, instead of to its government led by Muammar Gaddafi, a mission spokesman said on Monday.
At this stage of the game, I'm wondering how long it'll be before we find Moammar swinging from a lamp-post, or stood against a wall.
