"As I expected, now that Qaddafi’s advantage in armor and heavy weapons is being neutralized by the UN allies’ air campaign, the liberation movement is regaining lost territory. ... The Buraiqa Basin contains much of Libya’s oil wealth, and the Transitional Government in Benghazi will soon again control 80 percent of this resource, an advantage in their struggle with Qaddafi. I am unabashedly cheering the liberation movement on, and glad that the UNSC-authorized intervention has saved them from being crushed." (03/28/11)
