Are there any recent war or conflicts in Libya?

Libya is a bit out the realm of major world events. Nations that are closer to the Suez Canal (read Southwest Asia aka Middle East) see most of the conflicts (read Israel, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, etc.). Libya borders the Mediterranean Sea, and there may have been some "kidnappings, robberies, etc." (romantically called pirating by the newspaper people...gotta sell those papers!); which drew in US response's with military force.

Lebanon, which is closer to Syria and has definitely seen some action, when ever the "middle east" erupts (which used to be routinely during the 1960s/70s) might sometimes be confused with Libya...for people who don't follow world events.
