As protests and military retaliation against protesters are escalating in Libya, Moammar Gadhafi is losing control of his country and finding that even some of the armed forces are not siding with him.  Estimates that at least 1,000 people, mostly in the Tripoli region, are dead are offset by the growing wave of support for the protesters among the military.  On the western border with Tunisia, soldiers from that area refused to open fire on protesters and chased officers away.  They now guar...
