As Gaddafi holds on to power in Libya, anti-government forces have now captured just about every other city in the country. Meanwhile, the US is offering “any kind of assistance” to anti-government forces.

- David Cameron warns Gaddafi to ‘go now’ as 150 are rescued in daring SAS swoop: This article has pictures of captured military hardware, alleged African mercenaries captured by rebels, bombed-out cityscapes, and an interesting update on Gaddafi’s alleged “voluptuous” Ukrainian nurse who travels everywhere with him (people get excited by this relationship, but she is fact 38 and has kids in the Ukraine).

Most fascinating is the underground vaults and caverns, protected by blast doors and reinforced tunnels, where equipment and supplies were sufficient for a whole team to live for months.
