Though it seems clear that the international community in general and the United States in particular are bound and determined to do “something” about the massive uprising in Libya, the protesters’ leadership is openly spurning those calls and insists it doesn’t need their sort of help.
Hafiz Ghoga, a spokesman for the protesters’ new National Libyan Council, insisted that calls for foreign intervention were entirely unwelcome, adding that the protesters have taken most of the nation and “the rest of Libya will be liberated by the people.”
Indeed, despite people raising the prospect of international intervention against the Gadhafi regime, the newly formed pro-protester military say that they haven’t even deployed in Gadhafi’s last city of Tripoli because the protesters there insist they don’t need help.
Gadhafi only really holds the central part of Tripoli at this point, and that is only on the basis of his mercenary forces. It seems the people are preparing for their last push in this last bastion of regime power, and one hopes that by the time the Obama Administration et al have decided to move against Gadhafi he’ll already be gone.

Yes, the Arabs aren't as stupid as many have been led to believe. They know that any foreign "help" coming from the US and its "allies" will be motivated purely out of protecting their own interests in the country – namely oil. Hopefully, they will pick up the pace and oust Ghaddafi before the US and its flunkies crash the party.
These uprisings have been remarkable. Each in a very special way but they have all shown some commonality: the peaceful nature of the Arab people, their determination and courage and their intelligence. One Arab is smarter than the lot of the Amerikans, all 308+ of them.
Excellent! The US , and the West should bud out. Everywhere they go chaos, mass murder, destruction ensue. Let's hope they take heed, and worry about their own messes at home.
God bless the protesters
This report is consistent with what other reliable sources such as Al Jazeera and PressTV are reporting. It has been a carnage but the protesters are fighting the good fight and winning. They are smart and brave enough to realize that their revolution is not that of Egypt and that Qaddafi has made bloodshed a part of their victory. They will prevail. They will get their freedom and they will hang Qaddafi and his cabal. I await with baited breath. Libyan truly are remarkable and brave people. They deserve every good thing in the world.
Here's a twitter from Libyan youth movement today.
From today we must expect this discussion to start to take place across the media, we are all united against military intervention #Libya

The Libyans have a clear vision, they see freedom on the horizon, all of Libya has united and will oust gaddafi themselves ia #Libya #Feb17
Saif warned us in his initial speech, about a divide or foreign military intervention, we will prove him wrong on both Inshala #Libya #feb17
Libya has an incredible history, an incredible people, largely forgotten due to gaddafi, and must not be underestimated, they are capable ia
Oil is both a blessing and a curse, Libya's oil is one of the finest on the planet, and geographically perfect for transport by ship #Libya
But let us not forget, Libya has more then oil, it is home to 7 million people who fought for her freedom #Libya #Feb17 #gaddaficrimes
over a week in2 the Libyan Revolution, we are now finding ourselves explaining to the world why we do not want foreign military intervention
There are 2 clear messages, first No fly zone, second is aid. Foreign intervention will turn Libya into a Somalia or Iraq #Libya #Feb17

Many people talk about terrorists, Libya has no terrorists we are one people united, but foreign intervention will change everything #Libya
My admiration to this great people.
As usual the US rides in when all is safe to take credit, the arabs, who racked up accomplishments yet to be matched by "the west" have long memories and tell the HERO'S to bugger off.
Now people in Middle East and all over the world are up and doing what the people in EU or US needs to be doing.., freeing themselves from falsified democracy or social democracy and etc. tyrant and dictators, freeing themselves from what has been benefiting US and EU for to many years, freeing themselves from what they always wanted., peace and prosperity from the people, for the people and by the people without any help from those who supported the dictatorial regimes in their country for so many years.., Tony Blair are you listening to peoples voice.
Let me get this straight:
A bunch of Demonstrations in the ME these days (don't mention Bahrain or the Saudis). There was one in Egypt: therefore Libya is just like Egypt.
Think again you zero brained American twit. How is Libya the same as Egypt?
If Libya was the same as Egypt then there must be some record of their organizational efforts on at least one social network – hmmmm … let's see .. none on the Book My Face networks. None nowhere! Maybe, in a while Weak Leak will cough up some CIA intercepts – that's probably the only social network the Libyan "freedom lovers" used.
If Libya was same as Egypt then Egypt then the Libyan CIA-Demon-Strators would not have have stopped oil production and grabbed Libyan oil wells. The Egyptians didn't soooo … well scratch this similarity too dweeb – someone grabbed those fields. Maybe it was the same Dominican Republic Prison Inmates that were trained in the School of the Americas that freed Haiti of the reforms and controls their elected leader, Aristide, was placing on American Corporations stealing Haitian Bauxite to improve living and working conditions in Haiti.
If Libya was same as Egypt then the protesters would not be packing heat and using lethal force to grab public infra structure, like military bases – whoopsie – lost on that one too.
Allow some common sense to intrude. A bunch of Bankster had gone too long on Oil Futures. They were holding positions they couldn't exercise unless oil jumped above 95$/Barrel. They were able to exercise positions they held at a loss (they'd loose every dollar the spent on their precious futures contracts) at break even or a profit.
The February Futures Contracts were successfully cashed out – da bank boy lovers got kiddie porn change – and you – you Zero Brained Twit of an American Dweeb is now paying 30 cents more for a gallon of gas. I guess we be buying Marines in Afghanistan 600$/Gallon Obama Brand Gasoline as well!. A good bet would be the Libya Uprising will end pretty soon.
Great revolutions are determined by the people themselves. Even if the US government were the court of last resort to overthrow Gadhafi, do not allow them to come to table of revolution or even
eventual new government. There is nothing caring about the the US government wanting to help.
It always has a mask of deception for wanting something of value for themselves…greed, leverage,
PrisonPlanet and many other sites…see Google are reporting that US military have already landed(invaded?) in Libya:

US Special Forces have reportedly landed in Libya to train anti-Gaddafi rebels as a western-backed coup d’état in the oil-rich nation nears, with British and French “defense advisors” also arriving to set up training bases in the rebel-controlled eastern region of the country.
According to a report in the Pakistan Observer, hundreds of special forces personnel from the US, Britain and France arrived on February 23 and 24 in “American and French warships and small naval boats off Libyan ports of Benghazi and Tobruk.”
The article states that the report was confirmed by a Libyan diplomat in the region, who said that “The three Western states have landed their special forces troops in Cyrinacia and are now setting up their bases and training centres,” in a bid to bolster rebel forces resisting Gaddafi’s militia in the surrounding region.
“The Western forces are reportedly preparing to set-up training bases for local militias set-up by the rebel forces for an effective control of the oil-rich region and counter any push by pro-Qaddafi forces from Tripoli,” states the report.
In addition, efforts to “neutralize” the Libyan Air Force are underway in a bid to stymie Gaddafi’s ability to rule from Tripoli if he manages to remain in power.
The US Navy has also confirmed that the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, which had previously been on pirate-hunting duty off the coast of Somalia, is now steaming towards Libya as tensions rise.
