I can't see much indication that anyone taking sides on this has much regard for the opinion of the people of Libya, which do not seem at all clear.

Libya is made up of three regions which have significant differences, the former Tripolitania, with Tripoli as its capital and the former Cyrenaica, with Benghazi as its capital, and the former Fezzan, in the southern desert. Clearly there is support for the rebellion in Benghazi and also in Misrata, but whether there is support in the rest of the country seems unclear.
