NATO commanders expressed surprise at the persistence of supporters of Gaddafi


The North Atlantic Alliance is surprised by the perseverance with which the advocates of Sirte are trying to resist the rebel detachments.

The rebels have already captured all strategically important areas in the city, squeezed a small number of the remaining Gaddafi fighters and cut them off from all supply lines, but they continue to fight, writes on Tuesday, October 11, Associated Press. According to the NATO spokesman, Colonel Roland Lavoie, their actions are "simply meaningless." He also noted that this is “surprising, both from a military and a political point of view.”

The rebels approached the hometown of Muammar Gaddafi Sirtu in August, but still can not capture him. Wherein aviation NATO has increased its activity, increasingly carrying out its bombing. Earlier it was reported that the rebels before the start of the active phase of the fighting gave the civilian population an opportunity to leave the city, and about 10 thousand people left Sirte. However, many citizens were unable to leave and still live under rebel bullets and bombing of NATO aircraft - they either do not have transport to leave or they do not have gasoline.

In addition, the rebels are actively attacking the city of Beni Walid in the south of the country, but there they suffer an even greater defeat. On Monday, October 10, the rebel detachments were forced to retreat altogether to regroup, because they had suffered too many losses in street fighting.

      Yes, any occupier will not understand what it means to fight for his hometown. The defenders of Srt are well aware of what will happen if a "democracy" according to the American model is established in their city.

        Yes, to fight for your own in your own land is not for your democracy in the whole world ...

    Europeans and Pindos do not understand what real patriotism is! For them, patriotism is when a hand is in the heart and a hymn is heard, and when they press, they recall the expediency and logic. It makes me happy that no matter how bad things are going in our army, we have a chance to stand against them at the expense of perseverance and patriotism!

    The North Atlantic Alliance is surprised "Why the defenders of Sirte do not go to the chopping block like rams," but because they, the defenders, understand that these alleged rebels, if they seize the city, will begin mass executions. So that the struggle is for survival.

    That’s exactly why it’s surprising, they play soldiers in NATO, they press buttons, and here people have only one choice, either to die in battle for their homeland, or your enemies will execute you ..

    It is a pity, of course, that Sirte still can’t stand. And NATO hopefully someday find out what it is to defend their hometown.
