Disheartening developments from Libya:

Al Jazeera English is reporting that the oil port Bin Jawad, taken on Sunday by the opposition, has fallen once more into regime hands, with insurgents retreating to Ras Lanuf to the end. Its correspondent says that opposition military commanders are complaining that their fighters "do not want to be" disciplined or act in a structured way and that insurgent supply lines are stretched.

Abdel-Hamid reports:

So certainly what we can say at this stage is that Bin Jawad is not any more in the hands of the rebels, actually the Gaddafi forces now are managing to pound Ras Lanuf and are getting closer and closer to them, pushing the opposition fighters eastwards more and more. I think this is an exact repeat of what happened about three weeks ago.
