    How can a Tornado fighter jet keep the targeted tank in focus with its camera? How is such filming actually done?

    Rebel Close Air Support:


    Rebels celebrate atop a destroyed tank belonging to forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi after an air strike by coalition forces in Ajdabiyah March 26, 2011. Libyan rebels backed by allied air strikes retook the strategic town of Ajdabiyah on Saturday after an all-night battle that suggests the tide is turning against Gaddafi's forces in the east.

    A rebel fighter stands by an abandoned tank after forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi fled town following coalition air strikes around the eastern town of Ajdabiyah, March 26, 2011. Libyan rebels backed by allied air strikes retook the strategic town of Ajdabiyah on Saturday after an all-night battle that suggests the tide is turning against Muammar Gaddafi's forces in the east.


    Libyans stand on a destroyed tank belonging to Moamer Kadhafi's forces celebrating at the west gate of Ajdabiya on March 26, 2011, as Libyan rebels seized control of the strategic town of Ajdabiya, marking their first significant victory over Colonel Moamer Kadhafi's forces since the launch of the Western-led air strikes a week ago.



    A Libyan rebel carries a rocket-propelled grenade as he climbs off a destroyed Libyan tank in the city of Ajdabiya, south of Benghazi, eastern Libya, Saturday, March 26, 2011. Libyan rebels regained control of the eastern gateway city of Ajdabiya on Saturday after international airstrikes on Moammar Gadhafi's forces, in the first major turnaround for an uprising that once appeared on the verge of defeat. Ajdabiya's sudden fall to Gadhafi's troops spurred the swift U.N. resolution authorizing international action in Libya, and its return to rebel hands on Saturday came after a week of airstrikes and missiles against the Libyan leader's military.

Ajdabiya is the first town to fall back into rebel hands since a coalition of Western forces launched UN-backed air strikes on March 19 to stop forces loyal to Kadhafi attacking civilians.


    Pretty sure the Rebel CAS exceeded the UN mandate ..

    No longer 'disuted' Ajdabiya, thanks to coalition air power protecting innocent Libyan civilians ..

    Yes, I agree with this assessment. Oil is seeping through a crack that the bomb made. In Europe there are fountains of water, in Libya oil comes out of the ground.

    Now for the Graphic Part, Viewer Discretion Advised:



    Libyan deputy foreign minister Khaled Kaim (R) speaks during a press conference as Libyan government spokesman Mussa Ibrahim (L) listens on in Tripoli on March 26, 2011, as Libyan rebels seized control of the strategic town of Ajdabiya, marking their first significant victory over Colonel Moamer Kadhafi's forces since the launch of the Western-led air strikes a week ago.

    Libyan rebels celebrate in the city of Ajdabiya, south of Benghazi, eastern Libya, Saturday, March 26, 2011.



    A Libyan rebel celebrates at a Western-led air strikes site in the strategic oil town of Ajdabiya after defensive positions previously held by pro-Kadhafi forces stood deserted on March 26, 2011 morning as rebels rolled in.



    Libyan rebels drive past the charred bodies of pro-Kadhafi Libyan Government soldiers as they enter the strategic oil town of Ajdabiya after defensive positions previously held by loyalists stood deserted following Western-led air strikes on March 26, 2011.




    Eastern tribal rebels collect the bodies of Libyan government soldiers as they enter the strategic oil town of Ajdabiya after defensive positions previously held by loyalists stood deserted following Western-led air strikes on March 26, 2011.

    The hand of a fallen Libyan government soldier is seen in the city of Ajdabiya, south of Benghazi, eastern Libya, Saturday, March 26, 2011.

    If you look on a map you'll notice that Ajdabiya is a petrochemical center near the Mediterranean on a low spot along the Gulf of Sirte.
    It's proximity to the coast means that the water table may well be near the surface, that or an underground water or sewer line along the main road was disrupted. The bits of oil are from the T-55 wreckage ..

    French Defense Minister Gerard Longuet looks at a map of Libya at the BA 133 air base in Nancy-Ochey, eastern France, on March 25, 2011. Mirages 2000-D from BA 133 base made the first air strikes in Libya under a UN-mandated operation last week. French warplanes pounded Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi's forces today in the strategic eastern town of Ajdabiya, boosting rebel efforts to launch new offensives.

    Well, the last photo with the captured forces sure doesn't make life for the black Libyans any easier. I see all blacks, and black has often be associated with Gaddaffi mercs.

    Such is possible in this area. It is near the coastline and we are still in the winter season. You can experience heavy rains at any time.

    I don't think it's water, because there is nothing growing there. You said it's a petrochemical center. Maybe what we are seeing is a fountain of petroleum? There is a petroleum field and the bomb made a crack that brings up the petroleum.
