Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Seems clear Gadaffi's "smooth move" - see my comment, above - has failed.  

Now he has reinforced (?) mechanized (?) units stuck in the middle of nowhere, with little chance of reinforcement or logistic support.  They have to be physically drained after yesterday's combat, last night's movement, and today's combat.  They are very likely low on munitions and other combat supplies.  

How many of the survive the night depends on how many planes the French and other air forces can put into the target area and how many those planes want to kill.
