Rocket fire rains on crucial Libya town as Qaddafi's forces advance

Not sure sold the right term for it. But wash-our-hands of Libya describes it,

Ajdabiya and Benghazi, Libya
Muammar Qaddafi’s forces started a sustained aerial barrage on the eastern Libyan town of Ajdabiya today, sparking a panicked retreat of rebel militiamen and civilian families from a city that rebel leaders had insisted was their line in the sand.

Rocket fire and air strikes repeatedly hit the densely packed town of 100,000. “The rockets destroyed two houses on my block,” says an Ajdabiya resident by phone. “Some of my neighbors must have died. The international community has sold us to Qaddafi.”
