The rebels, who have been moving troops toward remaining Gadhafi bastions across Libya, had shifted the deadline for the town of Sirte in hopes of avoiding the bloodshed that met their attack on Tripoli.
"We want to save our fighters and not lose a single one in battles with Gadhafi's forces," said Mohammed al-Rajali, a spokesman for the rebel leadership in the eastern city of Benghazi. "In the end, we will get Sirte, even if we have to cut water and electricity" and let NATO pound it with airstrikes.
What a foul bunch of characters these are. They should go on trial with Gaddafi (and Bush, and every American president in recent history), but they won't.
The pathetic analysis and cheerleading of much of the Western Left in this whole affair - and its support for this rogues gallery - illustrates why it has been intellectually smashed by the Right.
