It is great news that the freedom fighters have retakedn Brega! This shows the tremendous heart they have! All this points to giving them a sanitary Air zone and allowing them a more even chance against superior training and weapons. Even with his advantages Gaddafy cannot succeed.

I only wish more nations supported the rebels. (talk)01:08, 15 March 2011

Absolutley. I hesitate to use the 'rebels' word since it has negative connotations. But, I suppose we must. Air support would be a very important step in maintaining some hope. The peoples hearts and minds are evidently convinced Gaddafi must go, so, go he must. The situation yesterday at Brega is an example of the Rebels will, even with inferior equipment. I hope we all become aware of the tremendous advantage owning the Air gives one side over the other. In warfare, it is the FIRST thing that must be established ,as it gives a superior platform from which to accurately and efficiently fire upon the opposition. Enlisting the help of others is something I hope the Rebels establish, and, Secretary Clinton seems to be on that tack. At least I hope so. We can be seen as Friends of Freedom and the Truth. I have been lied to by those who obviously support Gaddafi, and I'm sure I'm not the only one!
