Libyan Revolution: 5 March

  • Sirt is a strategic place, halfway on the very only route between Tripoli and Benghazi. Gaddafi needs, really needs to keep it if he doesn’t want to be holed up in Tripoli and if he ever wants to head to Benghazi. For the rebels, Sirt is the only obstacle on their way to Tripoli. If they capture it, the road will be open until Misrata, just before the capital. Those are the stakes

  • Witnesses say tanks are shelling houses and mosques in Zawiya, near Tripoli. The regime needs to score a victory in the West ASAP. Because on this side, the East, the revolutionaries seem to have gained momentum and launched a huge effort to capture Sirt, Gaddafi’s birthplace and stronghold, fundamental for the march on Tripoli. We’re living key moments tonight

  • I’m still shocked. I saw death in massive numbers in Mexico City’s earthquake. But this is man made. Many questions come to my mind but they all seem nonsense, as nonsensical is all this killing. What can I ask without adding nonsense to all this disgrace? Keeping quiet would be safer. But you guys know I’m not too good at that. There’s too much noise in my head

      • Miguel Acosta Es una locura querer permanecer en el poder a cualquier precio. Espero que puedas decir lo que tengas que decir. Sé que uno se mete en problemas por decir lo que uno piensa, pero uno no puede cambiar. Cuídate.

      • Alice Pipitone Es absurdo que la locura de uno y la hipocresía de muchos las tengan que pagar un pueblo entero. Espero que su lucha te de ánimo. Desde acá yo te mando mucho cariño y te agradezco por ser nuestros ojos.

      • Mary Zuñiga-Chavez Te mando un abrazo muy fuerte! Gracias por ser testigo valiente de la crueldad del hombre hacia el hombre. Fuerza al pueblo Libio!

  • Foretold in, 3 days before the explosion: “A soldier says quietly that his unit moved stockpiles of ammunition there during the first days of the revolution. He believes there are heavy weapons buried underground. And a volunteer guard says a nearby camp contains enough missiles and land mines to create a powerful explosion if it gets hit.”

    ‎’Free Libya’ has no shortage of enthusiastic volunteers for its fledgling military. But no one seems to be in command. And just what’s in the arsenal?

  • Panic is a virus that spreads in miliseconds. The crater is huge, surrounded by a huge circle of black soil shaded by the explosion. Everybody started running in disoriented madness: where to escape to, where’s safe? Some had heard an airplane. Who knows what kind of airplane. “They are coming to bomb us, they are coming to bomb us!” False alarm. This time.

      • Mary Zuñiga-Chavez Mi querido Temoris cuidate mucho, tu seguridad es lo primero y mas importante por encima de cualquier noticia. Los reportes de las noticias son alarmantes. Un abrazo y muchos besos.

      • Mel Oaks Témoris, menos mal que me he conectado a FB (hace semanas que no lo hago) sino no me entero. Como vengas y no me digas nada…te tengo que enseñar mi tierra, rincones más escondidos, comer y beber bien…. Me encantará hacerlo.

        05 March at 23:52 · 
      • Témoris Grecko Claro querida, te aviso!

  • Whether it was a missile, a sabotage or an accident, the huge, horrible problem is that this is a foreseen tragedy: I just found a Time article from March 2 where a guy was warning that this could happen. Ok, off to the explosion site

      • Pablo Pérez Por la sombrita por favor… cuidese.

  • Gathering figures from different hospitals, we think there were 32 fatal victims in last nights explosion. AFP says 27. We know there are more to come. We’re getting ready to depart for Al Rajma: people say the whole neighborhood was destroyed. What happened? A witness told us he saw two missiles, though its doubtful. Sabotage? Or an accident?

      • Miguel Acosta Amigo, la actitud de MG da para pensar que fue un ataque, si no ordenado por él, sí llevado a cabo por sus milicias. Debe ser un lugar dantesco.

  • Some people imagine that a journalist who sometimes covers conflicts (I don’t consider myself a war correspondent, that’s not what I want to be) should is used to horrible scenes of blood and madness, numbed, somewhat cynical. That’s untrue. I’m in love with life. I’m here because I’m doing what I think is my duty. I know horrors like this may destroy my soul

      • Vanzetti Huguenín Cruz Animo, animo boss… crees que ver las cosas con cierto desapego pueda ayudar a que el sentir sea un poco menos doloroso. No estas solo aca nosotros. Rigth. Gracias x el esfuezo…

      • Gabriela Lara Ànimo, Tèmoris. Muchos besos.
        Tu alma y tu espíritu son indestructibles.

        05 March at 14:41 · 
      • Miguel Acosta Coincido completamente contigo; un periodista que cubre conflictos no tiene que centrarse en hechos de sangre; creo, que debe darnos el contexto de lo que sucede, desde su particular perspectiva. Y no ha de ser fácil estar en una zona de guerra, pero tu alma se fortalece. ¡Un abrazo y cuídate!

        05 March at 15:26 · 
      • Mary Zuñiga-Chavez Nada puede destruir tu espíritu! El tuyo es indestructible. Gracias por lo que haces. No dejes que las imágenes aniden en ti. Un abrazo con toda la fuerza desde acá.

      • Suha Araj My silly words may be meaningless to what you are witnessing but for those fighting to live your presence gives hope. To see man’s darkest moments and keep a love for life…is your soul’s triumph. Thank you for being there.

        05 March at 17:03 · 
      • Gabriela Lara Agree with Suha! Thank you, Tem!

        Y, de nuevo, muchas gracias y mucha suerte, Témoris!

  • We went last night to one of the three hospitals. Crowded with live people. Crowded with dead bodies. Burned. Smashed. Ripped apart. All corpses were incomplete, making it difficult to count them: they told us a bigger figure than what we could make up. “Those bits are not one body”, the volunteer said. “The belong to different people”.
