AP reported several days ago that Libyan rebels are struggling with lack of discipline and training.
The Misrata rebel military council said it has been encouraged by the young rebels' bravery but discouraged by the difficulty in organizing them and overcoming their tendency to disobey. That's been a recipe for hundreds of unnecessary deaths.
"Every day the fighters know there are red lines not to cross. But they don't have proper training. They are not proper soldiers, so they sometimes advance without orders from the military council," said Misrata military council spokesman Ibrahim Beatelmal.
