Germany has announced that it's loaning Libyan rebels 100 million euros ($144 million) in humanitarian funding, as fresh NATO air strikes are reported to have struck targets in and around Tripoli.

German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said the funds were being provided "to build up the necessary structures and overcome supply shortages -- from medical care to food," adding that particularly in eastern Libya, "people are suffering more and more from this."

He said the money was to be paid back out of embattled Libyan ruler Muammar Qaddafi's assets, which are currently frozen, once the United Nations has released them to the new government.

Germany is not part of the NATO air-strike mission in Libya, and abstained from the UN vote allowing military intervention there.

Meanwhile, air strikes were reported to have occurred not far from Qaddafi's Bab al-Aziziyah compound as well as in the east and southeast of Tripoli early on July 24.

Libyan rebels in February launched operations aimed at toppling Qaddafi's regime and are now in control of roughly half the country.

yeah, yeah ... give them funds now ... incite conflict, supply ammunition, give funds by the millions ... for what? so that they can go ahead and kill their fellow countrymen??


this is how outside countries should get involved ... in a "revolution" ... you call this a revolution or a take over by foreign countries? Arent all these countries going to get their millions back in the form of "contracts" from these so called rebels they are "supporting"?


if you love to do humanitarian work ... love to do what is good for the people ... there are hundreds of people dying out there in a famine in the same continent ... send your money there. Why do you think twice before supporting them? Because they are not rich and cant give you hefty contracts?

Isnt this war totally and absolutely just "for the money" ... each and every step of it?
