    How they are not killing each other is beyond me. Everyone is firing wildly and no one seems to be in command. It's a matter of jump in a vehicle, blast of a couple of mags into the air then Charge!!! It seems to be working for them.. so if it's not broke why fix it

    That way, If I were as crazy as Gadaffi, I'd jump in the commanding vehicle, blast a couple of mags and stay in power, this time as the leader of the rebels (history repeating, eh?)
