Libya New Protest

At least 1,000 people protesting against the rule of Muammar Gaddafi have taken to the streets of Tripoli, the Libyan capital, raising fears of fresh conflict between anti-government protesters and loyalist forces.
The demonstrations soon petered out as Muammar al-Qaddafi's forces sprayed the crowd with tear gas and what witnesses say was live ammunition. In recent days, militia and mercenaries loyal to Qaddafi have patrolled the streets in civilian cars and detained and killed people at will.

Gaddafi Launch Land And Air Attacks

U.S. crude oil futures hit the highest settlement in nearly 2-1/2 years on Wednesday as
fighting in Libya intensified, raising more worries unrest could
spread to other oil producers in the Middle East and
North Africa.
Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi launched a land and air
offensive to retake territory in Libya's east and later warned there will be a "bloody war" if the Unites States or other foreign powers such as NATO intervene.

A Libyan warplane dropped a bomb near an oil exporting
terminal in the eastern port of Brega, helping extend the day's
gains. Rebels warned foreign military help might be needed to
"put the nail in (Gaddafi's) coffin" and end his long rule

Libyan Revolt 2011 uprising has wounded 4000 people and 640 dead. Libya's dubious human-rights credentials even before Moammar Gadhafi's bloody crackdown are inferior. A measure of how bad violence has gotten inside Libya, look to the borders, where tens of thousands have already fled.

The Libyan government said that it was not responsible for the safety of these journalists. Unlike Egypt and Tunisia, the big concern in Libya is whether there will be a competent caretaker government after Qaddafi.

No matter how many times we warn that dictators will do what they must to stay in power. President Obama comments on the violence in Libya reaffirms American commitment to Libya.
