SUSAH, Libya, March 18 (Reuters) – Supporters of Libyan
rebels said on Friday they were impatient for action to follow
up the U.N. resolution authorising a “no-fly” zone and military
attacks on Muammar Gaddafi’s forces.
“It’s a great development. We are so thankful. Thousands
came out last night, families, everyone celebrating. But we are
waiting for it to be implemented. We are tired of talk,” said
Rajab Mohammed al-Agouri who left Benghazi late on Thursday.
It was 2 a.m., dark and freezing cold when the first wave of Marines dropped from the sky on Feb. 13 to begin the largest Afghan offensive since the start of the war. It was the US-led invasion of the Taliban stronghold of Marjah, in the mountainous Helmand province in southern Afghanistan.
