History will note that Internet came back to life in Libya on August 21, 2011. It took 150 days for its resurrection.
In these 150 days, several changes took place in Libya.
In March, the NATO forces led by the French Air Force entered the Libyan airspace. By the end of the month the Libyan Air Force was thoroughly defeated.
In April the US strengthened the attack by launching unmanned aerial vehicle strikes.
By May it was officially declared that the military competencies of the government of Colonel Gadhafi have been severely depleted. Significant progress was made in hitting important targets of power of the government.
In June arms were supplied to the rebel forces by France.
In July the rebels made rapid progress against the Libyan government. It was reported that the rebels were even equipped with rocket launchers by the NATO.
By August Tripoli was surrounded by the rebels who went on escalating their offensive against the Libyan forces. On August 20, the battle of Tripoli intensified.
The major outcome of the events is that the internet has been freed from the clutches of the Libyan forces.
The Libyan people are already online inundating the internet with messages. Twitters and Facebook updates started to flow once again from the country.
Messages such as Libya is free and The tyranny is over are making round all over the social networks for the past few hours from Libya.
It can be a premature celebration considering that Gadhafi is still in power in the country. It is highly likely that in order to overcome the setback, Gadhafi may use rest of his men to undo the internet freedom.
In fact, the danger is already visible in Twitter messages which have indicated that the regime is taking strict measures to make certain that the internet is killed again, in less than a day from now. He might once again succeed. But the internet may resurrect once again, they hope.
