Hundreds of US, British and French military advisers have arrived in Cyrenaica, Libya's eastern breakaway province, debkafile's military sources report exclusively

British HMS Cumberland puts into Benghazi port

This is the first time America and Europe have intervened militarily in any of the popular upheavals rolling through the Middle East since Tunisia's Jasmine Revolution in early January. The advisers, including intelligence officers, were dropped from warships and missile boats at the coastal towns of Benghazi and Tobruk Thursday Feb. 24, for a threefold mission:

1. To help the revolutionary committees controlling eastern Libyan establish government frameworks for supplying two million inhabitants with basic services and commodities;

2. To organize them into paramilitary units, teach them how to use the weapons they captured from Libyan army facilities, help them restore law and order on the streets and train them to fight Muammar Qaddafi's combat units coming to retake Cyrenaica.

3. The prepare infrastructure for the intake of additional foreign troops. Egyptian units are among those under consideration.

Lybian Air Force status:

Qaddafi was shaken up badly Friday, Feb. 25, when many of his air force commanders decided to no longer obey his orders or those of his commanders, debkafile's exclusive military sources report. This loss deprived him at one stroke of one of the key pillars sustaining his fight for survival against the opposition since Sunday, Feb. 20. It means he is short of an essential resource for recapturing the eastern half of the country where half of Libya's oil wealth and its main oil export terminals are situated.


It's just a matter of time-truth be told. Most likely it is the same for everyone of those middle-eastern muslim countries. They are on the warpath... meaning the people who have been surpressed. They are killing each other in the fight for freedom. Which I support.

The problem will be when the dust all settles and we see who is left standing in power. That is when the real problems could begin for us outside of those countries.

Going to be a very interesting year. (most likely starting very soon).

Problem is, they are killing each other.
All is going according to plan, divide and conquer.
The imf will help these poor people rebuild though!!
Of course we will need to keep advisors there to figure out best how to sell their oil.

Youknow, I can't really argue the whole Oil thing on this one.

Plus, it appears that Lybia is a sure thing-meaning the Gov't is going to topple real soon.

I just heard on the radion that "serveral cities" in the East and West have come under the anti-gov't control. Key port too, as you read in the article.

Just a matter of time. Problem is that you know who is crazy and anything can happen with him as the President.

This has been anticipaated by most atsers im sure....hardly out of schedule for whats going on.
No way will the big players in Lybia (the oil giants) let the arabs wreck their infrastructure.
Besides, how could the Lybiaans pay for all that help they will need without it?
british troops were supposed to be enroute yesterday as well.....
There is spring in the air for sure....

Umm, just a caution. Debkafile is not noted for being the most accurate source out there. last year they claimed a huge destroyer fleet was in the Indian Ocean, which turned out to be a complete fabrication. Not that they are always wrong, but we don't normally rely on National Enquirer as a reliable news source--even though they nailed Edwards. i'm just suggesting you get a confirmation from somewhere else before you believe this entirely.

The situation is dire. People are going to do something really stupid. At the present time there are 1000+ people being killed in Libya. But, the worst is yet to come.

The warmongers have decided they want to "help". Their real motives is of course to make sure the oil supply is steady. That is their only concern. They are not concerned about the aftermath. The track record of the countries that want to go into Libya is bad. They will probably end up going into Libya, seize the oil under the guise of a western-friendly government. Then they will face an insurgence, and they will start a fight against "terrorism". Then they will make sure that over several thousand people each year is killed in the foreseeable future because of the new Libyan war of independence. But, the oil-companies have stakes in Libya. So, in order to properly privatize those assets, this genocide will likely happen.

Remember, the middle east sees the west as one force. And because of the amount of people killed there every day, they see us as pure evil. So, no western force will be welcomed into that country. We will be seen as the bad guys pretty quickly.
