Libyan rebels sign a weapons-for-oil deal with Qatar

Because they are totes just ordinary people trying to stage peaceful protests. Speaking of which,

Libya’s rebels will agree to a cease-fire if Moammar Gadhafi pulls his military forces out of cities and allows peaceful protests against his regime, an opposition leader said Friday.

(a) I find this hard to take seriously, but (b) even if they are serious, how long could it possibly last, given that NATO is looking into arming the rebels, President Obama has signed a presidential finding authorizing CIA covert action in the country, and Qaddafi is a crazy, vengeful motherfucker?

Details here.

Also, this is a useful and rather thoughtful roundup on Libya from HotAir’s Allahpundit, a libertarian, right-ish blogger with whom I suspect I would have little in common on other subjects. Strange fucking bedfellows….
