Chris,I will let you know

Chris,

I will let you know later in the week.  I am a little disgusted that the "rebels" abandoned Brega without firing a shot.  That puts Gadaffi's forces too close to Benghazi for comfort.

Some of the best reporting on the Libya revolt has been coming from Haaretz.  From what I have been reading there, it seems that the majority of the rebels have gathered in Benghazi and have been engaged in some basic training with defected officers, or others that came out of retirement to help.  Another article claimed that it was only a rebel force of 500 to 1,000 that was high tailing it eastward to liberate Tripoli.  That is the force (more accurately, a large group of morons) that had the early gains in the uprising attributed to "opposition forces".

Hopefully, the rebels will show their true strength in defending Benghazi, and will turn the tide.
