"Friends of Libya"

Yes, they are actually called that. The countries who only want to help Libyans be free.

And while they are busy dividing up the spoils, NTC's Jalil would like to remind NATO that he still needs air power, Qadafi dead notwithstanding.

NATO, whose air attacks backed National Transitional Council (NTC) forces that overthrew Gaddafi in August, is to decide on Friday whether to end its mission after his death and burial in the past week and a liberation declaration by the NTC.


NATO should stay involved in Libya until the end of this year to help prevent loyalists of Muammar Gaddafi from leaving the country, Mustafa Abdel Jalil, the interim leader, has said.


Ooops, wrong picture. Even then, he wasn't really part of the group, was he?

Okay, here we's Friends of Libya....

That group includes Bahrain, a country whose ruler, while wanting Libyans to be free (and being a "friend of the US, to boot") is busy beating back his own protesters longing to be free.

I did see a picture that included some grinning American military people, but I can't find it now. This is a good substitute, though, don't you think?

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
