Qaddafi&rsquo;s forces have already taken back another rebel held town to the west of Tripoli. Opposition fighters have pleaded for a no-fly zone but the international community has remained reluctant.&nbsp;Yesterday, the United Nations Security Council took up the question but failed to reach a decision.&nbsp; We discuss Libya's ongoing political crisis with Sarah Burshan, &nbsp;a Libyan American who has helped organize several anti-Qaddafi protests in Chicago and Ali Elgheriani.&nbsp; Elgheriani was born and raised in Benghazi, Libya.&nbsp;</p></p> Tue, 15 Mar 2011 17:31:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-03-15/chicago-area-libyans-watch-concern-qaddafis-forces-gain-ground-83743
