contradictory claim[edit]

We never start a paragraph with "Actually" and then deny the truth of the preceding paragraph. I am therefore moving it here:

Special Note: Actually, the 1805 Battle of Derna was based on President Thomas Jefferson assembling an expeditionary force of Marines to respond. Lieutenant Presley O'Bannon and his Marines marched across 600 miles of the Libyan Desert to successfully storm the fortified Tripolitan city of Derna and rescue the kidnapped crew of the USS Philadelphia.
The Marines’ victory helped Prince Hamet Bey reclaim his rightful throne as ruler of Tripoli. In gratitude, he presented his Mameluke sword to Lt O’Bannon. This famous sword became part of the Marine officer uniform in 1825, and remains the oldest ceremonial weapon in use by United States forces today. (End of special note)

Martyrs' Square or Green Square?[edit]

Please correct me if I am wrong on this, but I don't think the 'renaming' has been voted on, or written down in any decree or otherwise official document. Perhaps for now the text should read "immediately given the informal name of Martyrs' Square", or something of this sort. -Hamamelis (talk) 20:19, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

That was the square name before the coup d'etat in 1969. The green square is the name that was forced without any voting. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.254.5.174 (talk) 15:38, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Bride not Mermaid[edit]

There is a confusion about how Tripoli called , and it's due to literal translation. It is known as "The bride of mediterranean" lit: "Arous al bahr al mutawaset" and it's abbreviated to "Arous el bahr" which is literally means: Mermaid, that what makes confusion to others, and according to that name it's not affectionately call as mentioned in the article, but it was known of that in the sixties of last century when it was getting more prosperous and open. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.252.255.162 (talk) 23:39, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Law and govt. section[edit]

Needs to be de-Jamahiriyaed

Probably true of many other Libya-articles — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.209.103.5 (talk) 21:06, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

Agreed, but it mustn't be NTCed in the process. 82.176.209.52 (talk) 13:35, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

  • http://halshs.archives-ouvertes.fr/docs/00/12/82/40/PDF/lafi-bocquet_local_elites.pdf
    Triggered by \bhalshs\.archives-ouvertes\.fr on the global blacklist

If you would like me to provide more information on the talk page, contact User:Cyberpower678 and ask him to program me with more info.

From your friendly hard working bot.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 15:26, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 07:11, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

ISM School of Tripoli?[edit]

http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.ismschool.com/ is supposed to have been a website of an international school in Tripoli, Libya but I haven't had luck in finding a non-parked domain site. I wonder when it was active? WhisperToMe (talk) 02:18, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
