DIY Weapons Of The Libyan Rebels - The Atlantic

Our buddies Jefe and Elwood of the Road Devils posted this up on Facebook and these are some amazing photos taken of the Rebels over in Libya fightin' that mustachio'd ego maniac known as Qaddafi. Please rebels take this asshole out as no one will never forget the bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland. Be empowered by these photos as it is true DIY weaponry engineering and seeing what little they have to assemble from, damn right its DIY. All images and text below are copyright of the The Atlantic

For the past four months in Libya, rebel forces made up of civilians and army defectors have been waging battles against Muammar Qaddafi's armed forces, holding their own and sometimes advancing with the assistance of NATO air strikes. Scrambling to arm themselves against mercenaries and a professional army, rebels have been making use of everything they can -- from using captured weapons and munitions to rigging anti-aircraft guns and aircraft rocket launchers to the backs of civilian pickup trucks. Collected here are recent images of some of this weaponry used by the Libyan rebels.
