    Same here. The Netherlands is sending a KDC-10 and a Frigate(HNLMS Tromp) if evacuation by air is not possible. HNLMS De Ruyter is relatively closeby(anti-piracy op) so if **** hits the fan, it could be sent as well. For the moment though, it looks like the air evac is going to be the main plan.

    talked to my dad last night on the way back,

    the ****s is close to hitting the fan, on the airport at Tripoli it was full of Algerian commandos unloading hummvees and other equipment, also alot of merceneries from Tchad, and most of the army and police are in the streets in what he called "reorganized checkpoints". Basically 2-3 guys with weapons making your life alot harder if you arent cooperative.

    That must piss them off even more, Libyans and Chadians don't really have a love relationship.

    Khaled Al Ga'aeem, under-secretary of Libya's foreign ministry, phoned Al Jazeera on Monday night. Here is a translation of the ensuing conversation.

    all i know right now, every clan that has money, spends it on a private army, bear in mind tough that most of the rich clans in libya are connected to ghadaffi.

    I am reading and watching the news and there is a talk about European mercenaries.
    Can that be possible and what numbers would we be talking about?

    That's the point. It's really "funny" to see how these so called "democratic" inspired revolutions are so full of hateful ideology..

    Those who believe that something positive will come out from these "revolutions" are really naive or really ignorant about the arab world.
