    Technically Libya isn't considered a 3rd world because of it's oil wealth, but I understand what you write ..
    In (AFAIK) 2008 Poland was added by USA to 3rd world countries list, now we are searching for oil all over country

    I wonder if those rebel tanks were taken out by NATO air or Libyan ground forces?
    This may lend validity to the reports of 'rebel tanks' blasted a week back by NATO ..

    Note that all the captured tanks had the top part of the barrel painted in yellow, which might be the way NATO identifies the rebel tanks.

    According to the Khadafi soldiers in the video, they are saying that they managed to capture some of them and destroy the rest, while only being equipped with pick up trucks.

    I really think they learned a ton in the Toyota War against Chad back in the late 80's ..

    I'm impressed at how the Libyan government troops have been performing given their disadvantage against NATO air-strikes

    My Thoughts Exactly, khadafi has strong support among Touareg in the South of libya, and they are good at the Toyota war.
    In addition to that, he gave the Libyan citizenship to some Chadian tribes that live in the border region with Chad, plus he is a buddy of Iddriss Deby

    Rest assured that if this is true then it's likely that Loyalist units are doing the same. The loyalists have proven quite flexible and have adapted well.
    I don't see how they can lose when compared to the rebel fighters.

    I concur, He219 has been providing photographic evidence (Misurata "greens") on that matter (Tuaregs and Chadians). This goes on to show that this isn't going to be a walk in the park.

    in fact almost all the middle eastern armies call it ''Dushka'' at least I'm sure that Iraqis, Syrian and Egyptian do so.

    A Libyan rebel honor guard fires into the air during the burial of Ramadan Omar Balah April 15, 2011 in Benghazi, Libya. Balah, a rebel against longtime Libyan ruler Moammar Gaddafi's rule, was killed a day ago by Gaddafi sympathizers on the outskirts of Benghazi, a reminder of the brutal civil conflict that is engulfing the north African country. Life in the rebel capital of Benghazi continues on, even as troops loyal to battle with rebel fighters at front lines about 100 miles away, and while residents wonder whether they can escape the pull of Gaddafi's 42-year long rule.
