Communication Breakdown

As you guys have no doubt guessed, there's a complete blackout of communications services here in Eastern Libya. Am travelling between towns to report, so little or no access to the internet. Will blog soon with photos etc. Have a good week!

That's me with a soldier of the revolution on the road between Benghazi and Ras Lanuf, Eastern Libya. More photos, and maybe a post soon.

As a responsible global power why doesn't Indian government and India Defence Forces invade Libya and save it from anarchy.

shiv

Just try to impartially present the struggle and effort put on by the revolutionary forces allowing the world to see the correct picture as it stands.

It will be better if you do an episode on why the Libyans want a revolaution against 42 years of Gaddafi rule

Lets hope the revolutionaries get the needed support to overthrow the regime.

Hey Shiv, ensure you be very alert while reporting in Libya like standing near AA guns. Also ensure that you don't take stance either but just report about what you see there. Also pls ensure that everything is zipped properly.

While you would hope that a peaceful solution is worked out, I am not that hopeful.

Oil and related aspects mean that there are too many external influences. You only need to look a bit north to see how out of reach stability is.


Good luck - it would be interesting to see what the alternative governing solutions are and if they have the capability to bring changes to the people involved.
