    In 1970 when Gadhafi took over Libya as the new "leader", my family and I had to relocate to Italy along with hundreds of other families. We were born in Tripoli and lost everything.
    After 40 years the U.S. and the rest of the world thinks that there's something wrong with this madman. Really?? It took that long to figure it out?? And for all those celebrities that performed for the Dictator few years ago and now regret it,give me a break!!! He paid you in millions of dollars and NOW you feel bad!!! The day Gadhafi dies I will finally be able to go back "home" and mend my heart! I wish my grandparents would still be alive so they could be back in their beloved Tripoli.

    to the voices calling for no fly zones and arming the oppositon,stop and think about having the same situation here or in Great Britain.Would outside forces like a Russia or China be cheered and lauded to interfere and/or support the government opposition to overthrow in a time of violent civil strife.Somehow,I think not. Regardless of how distasteful all of this is.It is not our business and for that matter,how does one certify the good opposition from the "no better than what they already have.

    Hasn't somebody told the Libyans that shooting their guns off in the air as a sign of victory (or whatever) wastes ammunition??

    Defeats their cause when they need all the ammo they can get. Use it and lose it!

    Everyone knows that Gaddafi is a stubborn leader determined to kill thousands before dying. The rebels are also in a big suicidal mission. What we see is too much talk and no swift and effective measures taken by the international community to eliminate Gaddafi.
    The international community is indirectly responsible for this massacre for it is adding oil on the fire by meddling in Libya’s internal affair and by pushing Gaddafi to kill his people.

    These criminals must die. Gaddafi regime is kidnapping people and killing them. Keep us updated Anderson. Hope they can continue fighting for democracy as it is needed in Libya. A no-fly zone must be implemented though, no troops on the ground but we want someone to look out for us from the sky. That's whats slowing us down from taking down this insane man.

    This msg is for Anderson Cooper:

    I am a Canadian Libyan who is completely outraged by the ruthless actions of Gaddafi's regime. I would like to thank you for continuing to report on Libya and to ensure that the world knows the truth. On behalf of many Libyans, thank you for your honest reporting.

    I really appreciate your coverage of the Libyan rebellion and the comments of Fuad Ajami. We Americans need to be on the side of the rebels. The rebels may win this time, but, if they don't, they will win next time. The comments by the Obama administration about the rebels are unamerican. Since when are we on the side of the despots?

    Just curious. If Gadhafi is in trouble for the way he treats his people, shouldn't our government be in trouble too for sitting back and watching the cruelty happening to the Libyan people? Its pretty sad if you think about it these people are dieing just because because we rely on foriegn oil, So i government is to worried about their interest and not the people who are getting killed and hurt. You know if we had a war over here in the USA, do you think anyone would come help us, I think probably not. We have sat back and watched to many people die and have done nothing about it unless we have interest.

    The citizens you talk to each day who are risking their lives from inside Tripoli provide excellent feedback on the realities of the situation. But, in the tradition of KTH – how do they have such excellent quality transmissions – even without the "communication delay" that is prevalent amongst the best equipped journalists with the latest communication technologies?

    I feel some of the other countries over there that have money should help the people over there, and I also feel let them fight their own war over there don't involve the usa.

    I can't believe the world is allowing this slaughter to continue, in Libya. We have got to stop this insane man from killing his own People.
