Wow. I've been following their pretty amazing progress the last 7-10 buts didn't expect to see this so quickly. Here's hoping there isn't any significant push back or loss of territory.

Can only hope this is the last big push they need to secure a victory. It's a pretty amazing feat nonetheless.

I was reading reports of counterattacks by tanks and artillery this morning along with pro-Gaddafi snipers throughout the city. So no magical turn-over but allowing the rebels to take much of the city was a **** of a blow.

Edit: On the "No Blood For Oil!" front...
Reuters wrote:
Gaddafi's fall will reopen the doors to the country with Africa's largest oil reserves. New players such as Qatar's national oil company and trading house Vitol are set to compete with established European and U.S. majors.

"We don't have a problem with western countries like Italians, French and UK companies. But we may have some political issues with Russia, China and Brazil," Abdeljalil Mayouf, information manager at Libyan rebel oil firm AGOCO, told Reuters.

The comment signals the potential for a major setback for Russia, China and Brazil, which opposed tough sanctions on Gaddafi or pressed for more talks, and could mean a loss of billions of dollars worth of oil exploration and construction contracts in the African nation.
[...]
About 75 Chinese companies operated in Libya before the war, involving about 36,000 staff and 50 projects, according to Chinese media.

Russian companies, including oil firms Gazprom Neft and Tatneft , also had projects worth billions of dollars in Libya. Brazilian firms such as Petrobras and construction giant Odebrecht were also in business there.

#20varusword75, Posted: Aug 23 2011 at 7:06 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) What a surprise that none of you radical liberals are talking about the FACT that the US/Obama just installed another radical islamic state. Without the US airstrikes none of what the radical sharia rebels have accomplished would have been possible. 1 billion of US taxpayer money just went to overthrow an established govn and install another radical islamic state. Just like Egypt.

Funny, how varus is all gung-ho about deposing Saddam Hussein, who was proven incapable of posing any real threat outside his own country, yet cries his eyes out about the man who personally ordered an airliner exploded over Scotland.

Tell me, how well is freedom and democracy flourishing in Iraq these days? Hint: it's been over three thousand days and the country is still more deadly than a Philadelphia flash-mob.

Meanwhile, back in the OP, NATO has reportedly blown a hole in the wall of the Gaddafi compound in Triopli and the rebels have entered and seized it. Gaddafi is still missing and one of his sons is trying to rally the remaining loyalists but it's hard to imagine a scenario where this isn't the closing days of the Gaddafi regime.

Only because the alternative is much worse. Only radicals like yourself prefer a sharia extremist state to a dictatorial regime that's been in place the last 40yrs.
