The BBC keeps talking of rebels as if the new authorities in Libya will be stamped with this monicker for ever. As if to say they will have rebel ambassadors, rebel ministers and rebel anything else. It must be something to be labelled a rebel just because you want to be free of a crazed dictator. I'd call it fighting for freedom but then one man's freedom fighter is another man's rebel.
