    Friendly Fire does suck. But it happens. Nice make-believe headline to go with your story, too.

    Nothing make believe about it. Reports have been saying for days that the rebel forces are few and far between. What do you expect when you put a rank amateur in a job that no one is really qualified for.

    Maybe the rebels should adopt some sort of standard colours or markings?

    They have been, anything they could steal from Qaddafi.

    This is why Gates said that a NFL would not work. And why he threatened to resign if Obama orders a ground attack. There is no rebel force.

    Havent you ever heard of the draft in sports. Obviously Obama is going to invade Libya with football players.
