What do you think about the USA announcing they are going to recognize the rebels as the Govt of Libya?

Does this lead to more $$ for guns?

Wasn't it comments like this from Gaddafi that led us into this fight? As bad as Gaddafi is, we should not be supporting the execution slaughter style of his loyalists.
Speaking at a news conference in Benghazi, Mustafa Abdel-Jalil, the head of the Transitional National Council, said Colonel Qaddafi’s loyalist fighters had until Saturday to negotiate a surrender. The offer related primarily to the coastal town of Surt, the fugitive leader’s hometown and a focus of support for him, but also covered loyalist strongholds at Bani Walid and in the southern oasis town of Sabha.

Mr. Abdel-Jalil said that if the deadline passed with “no peaceful indications for implementing this, we will decide this matter militarily.”

“We do not wish to do so but we cannot wait longer,” he said.
