It appears that some just want to help out the Libyan people so much that they are willing to help them by surprise.. . It's almost comical how MI6 and SAS officers got caught by some farmers and were then handed of to the rebels.

I can only wonder what were the real motivations for this ? Was it out of pure solidarity, that burning desire to do what you can to help ? Create good relations with the future new controllers of Libyan oil ?

I won’t take risks with economic stability, or wreck the public finances. But I promise you I am doing everything I can to find a way to help. Chancellor George Osborne - 2 days ago

Whatever may be the real motivations, I tend to think that a good way to help the oppressed would be to stop selling weapons to their dictators in the first place.
