Libyan Rebels Now Fighting With Tanks and Other Armor

Remember when NATO frowned upon the Libyan rebels having tanks? Well, things have changed significantly on that front. Our friends at RAW posted this video earlier this week showing a Libyan rebel tank column ready to move towards the front at the oil-terminal city of Brega.

The machine-gun mounted pick-up trucks that had been the only "armor" the rebels previously had to work with now follow behind the captured tanks that formerly belonged to Moammar Gadhafi's forces. A rebel source contacted overnight tells me there is much better coordination with NATO now, reducing the chance of alliance warplanes accidentally bombing their well-armed allies on the ground.
