BBC Arabic: Government Forces Took Over Zawiya & Misutara, Heading for Benghazi (UPDATED)

(UPDATE) Well, that seems to be a lie from Gaddafi. Or I should say propaganda. Or "narrative" (oooh I hate that word). Al Arabiya, Al Jazeera, AFP all deny that Tobruk, Misurata, Az Zawiyah, Ras Lanuf have fallen; they are still in the hands of anti-Gaddafi forces.


Tweets from Sultan Al Qassemi:

BBC Arabic: Libyan State TV announces that govt forces are now heading to Benghazi.

BBC Arabic: Libyan State TV announces that govt forces have taken full control of the towns of Zawiya & Misutara.

I hope they're wrong, for the sake of Libyans and for those of us who are against military intervention by the West. If the West go in, there will be "Boots on the ground".

Brzezinski's sensible options, which I agree with, will fall on deaf ears of the leaders of the West, jockeying for a hero status in the eyes of their respective electorate, be it US President Obama or Spanish Prime Minister Zapatero (who looks like Mr. Bean).
