The Road To Gaddafi's Hometown

The road from Ras Lanuf to Sirte, Gaddafi's "hometown" in Libya. Ran into this anti-aircraft position, where we shot for a while. The buzz of a Libyan fighter prompted a heavy and extended bout of firing. More soon.

Keep it up.

Whenever you find the tattered house of Gaddafi, you please show its photo.

I hope it turns out to be a protracted war in the whole region bringing out more and more of F-35/18/16 in to the markets and skies and grounds. Lol...

Take care of your safety Shiv :) Acts of courage must be reported, they inspire people to stand up for what is right.

@anon 3:47 : and u can always tell that a post is from a porki if that person is visiting an indian blog and trying to spew the envy of a failed state of porkistan witnessing the progress of "scared indians". best is at the end of it-most of such porkis show courage by staying anonymous. Watch out porki, if things go as they r going in ur country.. have a bet in 5 years or lesser, ur country cud be the next libya, yemen,tunisia,egypt but hey no.. maybe worse coz education has united the people in those countries, unlike porkistanis who want 2 commit suicide- suicide bomberistan..what worse cowards can there be..who donno how to fight openly but hide behind the veils of terrorists..go back 2 ur cave now!
