NFSL was based in Sudan until a coup d'état led to the fall of Colonel Gaafar Nimeiry in 1985. The NFSL has opposed military and dictatorial rule in Libya, and called for a democratic government with constitutional guarantees, free elections, a free press, and separation of powers among the executive, legislative, and judicial branches. NFSL launched a wide campaign to topple Gaddafi in Libya, establishing a short-wave radio station, a commando military training camp and also published a bi-monthly newsletter, Al Inqadh (Salvation). According to various sources, Saudi Arabia and the United States Central Intelligence Agency have supported the NFSL
I would imagine, as is the case in many rebellions, only about 10% or so of the country is actually doing the fighting. And from those numbers alone, and the fact that the rebels are indeed still marching and not having been wiped out yet, which they would have if your numbers were correct, then I'd give a safe bet that it's probably cut maybe 3-2. Can't say whose on whose side, but I can say that it's clear the rebels haven't been wiped out. If they really were so few, they would have been.

the rebels are hired western terrorists just like the way america created the taliban in the early 1980s just to kick the soviets out and you know what happend then? america gave the taliban right to control the country.
