Armed western men have been filmed on the ground with rebels in central Libya in the first apparent confirmation that Nato has sent military advisers to train anti-government forces.
A group of six westerners were clearly visible, according to a report by al-Jazeera from Dafniya, described as the westernmost point of the rebel lines west of the town of Misrata. Five of them were armed and wearing informal sand-coloured clothes, peaked caps, and cotton Arab scarves.

Anyone else remember a war that got starded because the US sent military advisors in to help out a side in a civil conflict. Of course these advisors required protecting, so a protection force was sent in.
The protection force got fired upon, so they sent re-inforcements, and then within a year thousands upon thousands of troops were deployed only to get pwned.... what was that country called again? Started with a V.... hmmmm
