    How the people of Tripoli could again pressure Gadhafi.

    After the no fly zone is implemented, drop flags (or material to make flags, even paint cans)all over Tripoli. Have the flags large enough to be photographed from the air or satellite and have a specified time when these flags would be placed on the roofs of houses. At the appointed time photograph Tripoli from the air. Include a letter from the interim government in the East. This could show the world and Gadhafi where the support lies in Tripoli.

    The US resolution could be used to prevent heavy military equipment being used against the people of Tripoli, the interim government could provide small arms if needed.

    This could allow for a return to a people's movement and away from a military movement.
    – Pass it around.

    I'm just wondering if anyone is asking the question, "who are these rebels in Libya?" I've heard that they have many anti-western jihadists among them and could be worse than Gadhafi if they take over. They speak of democracy, but there is no such thing as "Islamic democracy." I don't hear anyone discussing this point.
