This is good. I like the colloquial translation - people come to life in a way that most media seem to want to actively suppress - by either framing them as more noble or more savage, and not just regular guys in a messed up situation.

And I got hungry for Libyan food...

What dozo said. Also, this:
An armored personnel carrier from Gaddafi’s militias after being hit by Coalition air strikes. The spray paint reads: “Bu Shafshufah’s rubbish, all for sale.” (Bu Shafshufah, or “Uncle Curly,” is a derisive nickname for Muammar Gaddafi.

I'm forever going to be thinking of him as 'Uncle Curly' now.
