Pockets of resistancesurround Tripoli, but the situation in many western cities remainsunclear, including in Misurata, the third largest city. Although inthe previous week, the rebel forces appeared to be gainingmomentum, but in the recent days Gaddafi appears to have the upperhand.

The protests were planned about 40 years ago, well that's what many say in Libya. The main reason for this outbreak is the call for democracy that the western world has. Libya isn't the only country who wanted this anyhow. Algeria, Yemen, Jordan, Bahrain, and many other countries started this protes…t along with Libya. The cause of this outbreak was from February's events. In that month, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was toppled by Egyptian protesters, who wanted democracy as well when they saw a man, putting himself in fire, and then dying shortly, Egyptians then headed to the streets. The result was great, Egypt currently is making a democratic government similar to the western world's. But there is a catch, making/keeping a democratic government is easier said then done. For example, Canada took 140 years to get democracy circulating through out itself. Hope this helped :) That's all I can say ;) Cya later :) (MORE)
Gaddafi, the 'president' of Libya, doesn't treat his people right and used the government's money on himself and not for the people and the country, not the Libyans are rebelling and fighting against him.

Maybe till the 20's and 30's of the last century there were lions to be found in Libya in some outlying places But now I don't think..!! Lions was still to be found in the Middle East till the 30's and I know that some drivers were eaten by lions in Saudi Arabia in the 50's
The Libyan people have risen up against the leader of the country, Muammar Gaddaffi. The rebels want to overthrow him and establish a democracy. The rebels are aided by the British, French and American air forces, who's primary aim is to protect civilians from the Gaddaffi forces.
It is simple. There is a war in Libya because people of Libya want Muammar Gaddafi to leave office so that they might be able to live more proper within their own country.
There is violence in Libya because the dictator of the country, Muammar Gaddafi, is in threat of losing his power. People are fed up with him and want him to step down. Gaddafi, the violent leader that he is, has directed his followers to commit violent acts on the protesters against him. It is not …confirmed that Gaddafi has told his followers to do this, but from his past it would not be surprising in the least. Because of Gaddafi's denial of having anyone oppose him, the only way to get him out of power is for people to use brute force. This is causing a lot of unnecessary violence in Libya at the moment. Also, if you weren't aware, Gaddafi has been in power since 1969, and has committed terrorist attacks countless times. Luckily he never had enough allies to actually commit a terrorist attack similar to 911. (MORE)

Libya was a dictatorship under Gadaffi. Now it may become a democracy, but I doubt it.
Omar Al-Mukhtar - Libyan national hero who resisted the Italian colonialism of Libya from 1911 until 1931 when he was hanged by the fascist government of Benito Mussolini.
Libya is attacked to get rid of Gaddafi. At least that is what the news reports say. Maybe it is also to get some oil. Who knows? It is the US after all
Moamar (Colonel) Gadafi is finding himself under increasing pressure to step down. This is posted Monday, August 22nd, 2011.
NATO gave air support to the rebels engaged with the Libyan army, to help them overthrow the Libyan dictatorship and Gaddafi. Countries in the UN suffering from terrorist attacks e.g. can ask for help if the Security Council (Britain, Russia, USA, France and China) deem it appropriate to provide as…sisstance. If one of the "founder five" disagrees (refuses to provide help) then help cannot be granted though. (MORE)
Question too stupid to be answered, the internet cannot handle so much stupidity in one place.
Libya is in the news mostly because of the uprising against Gaddafi, during the Arab Spring and the subsequent western intervention in that region. Most of the current news about Libya deals with the aftermath of that affair under the new (formerly rebel) government.
Their president became corrupt and stayed in the position too long, so the people started rebelling against him. He, with the military started taking people as hostages, people who have not done anything. Forcing so much people to vacate the dangerous place.
