Talk:France first to recognise Libyan rebels as "legitimate representatives of the people"

Active discussions

What to do? The sources mention two opposition councils, but on Wikipedia they redirect to the same name. If I change the name in the article, it won't reflect the sources. Mattisse (talk) 21:54, 10 March 2011 (UTC)[]

Personally, I'd leave the links to point to the appropriate article on Wikipedia (if it's redirecting), my reasoning being that eventually that article will be created. It might also be worth asking nicely for someone to create them (or, to create them yourself). I'm saying this as a general-case, I haven't looked at the article itself for clarification. Of course, there's always the chance of the sources being incorrect & Wikipedia being in the right. — μ 22:09, 10 March 2011 (UTC)[]
I think Wikipedia might be correct, and the sources are confused. (But I might be wrong.) I've left the source's versions in the article but direct them to the same Wikipedia article. Thanks! Mattisse (talk) 22:27, 10 March 2011 (UTC)[]


You cannot publish under this title! It is utterly wrong. A group representing the people is not the same as a government. Do the armed forces answer to them? Do they make new laws? No on both counts. Therefore the current title is factually inaccurate. --Brian McNeil / talk 22:24, 10 March 2011 (UTC)[]

Thanks! I guess the BBC was not a good model! Libya: France recognises rebels as government Mattisse (talk) 22:35, 10 March 2011 (UTC)[]

Well... I like this title better for those reasons, but France can recognise me and my dog as the Libyan government if it likes. Nobody in Libya answers to us, but if France wants to say we're the gov't, it can. There's some lock-ups near my place would make great embassies. Oh, Mattisse; since you're commenting here, are you aware I left a message on your talk earlier? Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 22:56, 10 March 2011 (UTC)[]

  • Bar-L would make the *ideal* location for the American embassy. ;-) --Brian McNeil / talk 23:19, 10 March 2011 (UTC)[]

Review of revision 1192652 [Failed]Edit

Review of revision 1192730 [Passed]Edit


I'm not sure, but w:Flag of Libya seems to indicate that the protesters are using a variation of the old flag with stripes of equal height, rather than the original version in this article. Is Wikipedia right, or are the protesters using the old flag after all?
