DIY Weapons of the Libyan Rebels – Alan Taylor – In Focus – The Atlantic

A maker’s army, the weapons of improvised insurrection. I love this stuff because it a) speaks to the ingenuity of people in the face of a better equipped enemy and b) signals that this is an army armed with found objects and not supplied from the outside.

 

 

This is my favourite from the gallery ... pop-bottle molitovs in a bottle tray like the one they were probably delivered in. :)
