Toyota War II: Rebels out-thought by Gadaffi forces

A rare good BBC News article, written by John Simpson, has an enlightening account of the tactical battle currently being fought between the Libyan government and the Globalist-Al Qaeda axis.

Essentially what is described is a repeat of the Toyota war, a 1980s era battle when Chad destroyed Libya's mechanised army with a dozen highly mobile Toyota 4x4s, with machine guns and rocket launchers bolted on the back of them.

Until yesterday the rebels had been employing these Chadian tactics very effectively. Under the cover of globalist airstrikes, using the Toyota technicals, they had ploughed through the Libyan front, running rings around the Libyan army, all the way to the strategic coastal town of Sirte.

Sirte is a strategic outpost - the seesaw point - as it lies on the one road that connects the two mass populated halves of Libya. Currently the rebels controls the East - Cyrenacia - and Gadaffi the West, including Sirte.

To defend Sirte Gadaffi's men jumped out of their tanks and into their own Toyotas. Their speed enabled them to skirmish effectively to defend the town and helped neutralise the rebel's air superiority because it was difficult to tell from the air whose vehicle belonged to which side.

Now since the Libyan army has picked up the light weapons, the talk is inevitably of arming the rebels with heavier weapons, or a globalist lead full ground invasion. Or maybe they will just stick peacekeepers in the middle and call it a score-draw.
