    "Morality is doing what is right no matter what you are told. Religion is doing what you are told, no matter what is right"

    Sorry to drag this off-topic, but you're putting Religion under one big generalized term...there are so many religions

    Religion Sets Morals...otherwise it is all subjective...

    Because they are rebelling against the current establishment. There for, regardless of the fact they might be fighting for a brighter future, they are REBELS.
    Its a rebellion, many rebellions have been for a greater good. The word rebel does not define good or bad.

    Did you learn nothing from Starwars?
    The good guys in that were also called the rebels.
    why have you ignored this post it explains perfectly.

    No really, what's your problem with the BBC calling them rebels when even Al Jazeera is calling them the same? Can't exactly argue that AJ is biased against the rebels.

    Press TV is just garbage... Is any other major news outlet referring to them as "revolutionaries"?

    We shouldn't be in Libya at all, it's not morally right nor is advantageous to us materialistically.
