Yeah,they won't accept a ceasefire-the rebels said Gaddafi had his last chance when he refused to step down as leader after the rebellion began.
Tonight they say will be the regimes last night.
Its going to be ugly-I hope the talk of Gaddafi having a scorched earth policy for Tripoli is untrue.
Time will tell.

Guys, are you sure that the rebel could defeat Gaddafi? Maybe but i'm not sure because rebels are not as trainead as Gaddaffi forces are.

I don't think the Libyan people will thank us for this.
This is one more black spot on the soul of the American people for allowing this to continue.
Tripoli, Libya (CNN) -- Saif al-Islam Gadhafi, a son of Libya's ruler Moammar Gadhafi and a top official in the regime, has been captured by opposition forces, a rebel official said Sunday night.
Ali Said, general secretary of the Benghazi-based Transitional National Council, said that the arrest had taken place in Tripoli. The head of the same rebel group also confirmed the capture in an Al Jazeera interview. There was no immediate reaction from Libyan government officials to the report.
These celebrations were in response to rebel inroads into the capital and news that two of Moammar Gadhafi's sons -- Saif al-Islam and Saadi -- have been arrested by opposition forces. Jumma Ibrahim, a rebel spokesman based in Libya's western mountain region, said both were captured in Tripoli.
Libyan rebels have taken control of the capital Tripoli's Green Square, as opposition forces said Colonel Gaddafi's rule of 42 years had been ended.
Small pockets of resistance are still being encountered by rebels around Colonel Gaddafi's compound in Tripoli, according to Libyan rebel chief Mustafa Abdel Jalil.
