Rebellion in Libya

For the most complete explanation of the rebellion in Libya as well as day to day updates, check out this article by Mother Jones:  What’s Happening in Libya Explained

This country is not simply protesting; they are warring within. The leader has their military firing upon their own people. Some reports show anywhere from 65-250 deaths. However, the protesters claimed the deaths are vastly underreported and are closer to 1,000. There have been reports of fighter jets refusing to fire at the protesters and fleeing to Malta, snipers taking out anyone and everyone on the streets, and Libyan ambassadors resigning and joining the protest.
