British Defense Sources Say Libyan Rebels Should Receive Training Fast

MAHMUD HAMS/AFP/Getty Images(LONDON) -- British sources say Libyan rebels should receive training ASAP. The Guardian and other papers in London are reporting the British government is seeking ways to train and equip the rebels. Quoting unnamed British defense sources, the idea would be to get people like former special forces to train-up the rebels and get Arab countries to fund such training.

The ultimate goal is to strengthen their battlefield positions before negotiating a ceasefire.
