Now for the other front of the two front war of words on the left:

"Speaking at a meeting of defence chiefs in Qatar, the NTC's head, Mustafa
Abdul Jalil, said Col Gaddafi's forces could still wage brutal
counter-attacks even as rebel forces pushed into the last pockets of
resistance by pro-Gaddafi troops.

""Gaddafi's defiance of the coalition forces still poses a danger, not only
for Libya, but for the world. That is why we are calling for the coalition
to continue its support," Mr Jalil said at the meeting in Doha."


"Coalition forces", Freudian slip by Jalil?

Look at that attached BBC photo.  No more pop-gun on a pick-up Mr. Nice Guy,
huh?  That appears to be *heavy armor* massing in front of Sirte, backed of
course by the usual allotment of NATO air power and Tomahawk missiles.

Question:  How has the balance of forces changed in Libya?  Is Gadaffi
"still a threat?"

Clue:  Think those Misrata rebels, or anyone else who defy
Jalil/Qatar/NATO/UN, stand a chance in hell against such power?  What angel
from the sky will protect them?

Answer: No, and Nobody.
