I just checked out the online TV outlet for the news station France 24
. Things seem very calm in Benghazi where people are going about the
business of setting up the post-Gadhafi administration of the city. There is no panic, no apprehension and no talk of airstrikes that I have heard so
Even if you don't speak French, the pictures tell the story.
They are reporting a battle for al Brega and its oil storage facilities. The rebels are said to control the airport near that city and there is
footage of them shooting their weapons but no footage that I have seen of government forces.
The rebels want a no fly zone and the Americans want a no fly zone.
Others are not so sure about that idea.
Edit: The text crawl on France 24 says that the rebels have regained control of al Brega, that Hugo Chavez has proposed a peace plan that the Arab
League is said to be interested in and two Iranian warships have entered the Suez Canal
Earlier two American warships passed from the Persian Gulf area through the canal toward the Mediterranean.
I'm amazed that Iran is doing this.
