Largely out of sight and mind, civilian massacres continue daily while Western media yawn, cheerlead, or alternately do both.
On October 10, clashes between rebel and loyalist forces occurred in Hadbha, Arada, Abu Salim and other Tripoli areas. Helicopter gunships indiscriminately fired at peaceful anti-NATO demonstrators.
Reports suggest Qatari, Saudi and Israeli Special Forces in Libya. On October 10, "15 TNC fighters were killed outside Bani Walid. All were carrying Israeli" IDs. Late at night, UK "SAS Regiment (forces) entered Sirte to carry out a special operation. Reportedly "16" were captured, another "44" killed.
UK, Saudi, Qatari and Israeli forces in Libya provides more evidence "for US and NATO's utter disregard for (UN) principles" and rule of law values. It also justifies Russia and China's opposition with Security Council measures against Syria as a prelude to more conflict.
Libyan loyalists keep resisting to liberate their country and rebuild, despite daily NATO terror bombing.
On October 12, NSNBC said despite heavy NATO and rebel attacks, "Sirte is holding out. So is Bani Walid. So is most of Tripoli."
Despite heavy clashes there and elsewhere, neither NATO or its hired guns "succeeded (in) break(ing) the Libyan peoples' will and ability to resist."
The battle for Libya shows no signs of ebbing. Further updates will follow key events.
