    I'm sorry for being such an arse, I am very confused. :confused:

    How has he managed to sustain this support from the largest city and capital of Libya (Tripoli) for this long amid all the controversy?
    Honestly I have no idea. But an educated guess would lead me to assume a mass amount of brain washing similar to supporters of Stalin and Mussolini in the past.

    Well French military jets have flown reconnaissance missions over "all Libyan territory" on Saturday, French military sources say.
    Could this be the beginning of military intervention?

    It may come to that! Probably the black watch will be sent in if there has to be ground force intervention. I hope it doesn't go that far though.

    It will be a good opportunity to see how our new eurofighters are in a dog fight and air assualts. Not that we should look at this situation that way though obviously.

    Eurofight vs libyan MIG=no contest. Eurofighters will shoot them down like clay pigeons.

    Perhaps. We'll have to wait & see what unfolds for Libya. Hopefully, it's good for the ordinary Libyan citizens :crossedf:
    Thanks for answering and thanks Balagan.

    Till then, :creep: out of this thread.

    Have to admire Gaddafi for sheer stubbornness and giving the two fingers to Western interests. Other dictators(and Mubarak) take note, this is how to quell a rebellion.
    He's done it before. The man is experienced and skilled as ****!

    Quite; stubborn and effective oppression is most admirable.

    Doubts. My good man, just because we don't agree with his attitude/way of governing a country, does not mean everyone else also disagrees. They were not brainwashed, like someone said before, most of the supporters are from his tribe :yep:

    When the british and french planes go in, how are the rebels going to know they are UN planes and not gaddafi one? Because it seems that the plane shot down may have been a rebel plane, shot down by rebel fighters!!!!!!!
    i was just thinking this lol

    I just found out that there may be special forces in libya already making sure things like this don't happen, i.e they are working with libyan rebels to help the jets bomb govt military targets, and stopping rebels shooting at the UN jets.

    This is what they did in the 1990s with the bosnian wars, where sas/sbs troops used laser guided binoculars to help guide UN bombs on govt forces.

    Yup Saudi Arabia told them to do it. It helped them check Gadaffis forces a few days ago but it was not enough in the end.
    So why are Saudi Arabia anti-Libya, but are sending troops to kill the protesters in Bahrain?
    Did Gadaffi scam Saudi Arabia at some point?

    I don't mind him, he supported us during the struggle. At the same time I don't mind his opposition, they are fighting a revolution, standing up to a dictator. I hope he stays in power but.

    It angers me to see these western nations sticking their noses in it.

    Yeah this is what i was worried about, ground troop intervention is looking more and more likely now.

    However if the rebels know that they have been kidnapped then they probably wont condem UN bombing, considering most if not all rebels are willing to die for their cause.

    Truly a brave bunch these rebels, i hope they stick in and kick gaddafis ass!

    So the people have been kidnapped to be used as human shields, or the people were kidnapped and are being used as human shields? If it's the former, how can they 'confirm' their purpose?
