    LIBYA - "I WILL DIE A MARTYR" Gadaffi Clinging On To Power Refuses To Go


    "Gadaffi's spoke on state tv for some length of time, and he came out fighting. He has no intentions of steppind down like other leaders in the area have done, he said.

    He has demanded the protesters hand in their guns and army stolen from the police and the army, so that the peaceful protesters in support of "his revolution" could take to the streets.

    This is fast becoming a regional crisis with Gadaffi speaking very aggresively.

    And if you think it wont affect you here in the west, think again. He mentioned halting export of oil from the region - that would put the price of oil even higher. This is in danger of esculating out of hand, quick."

    CNN: Video has been posted on YouTube of what CNN is told are six badly burned bodies of Libyan soldiers in open body bags.

    The video, taken on a cell phone, was posted on Monday. It is not known when it was taken. Opposition sources in Libya say the bodies are of soldiers who refused to shoot at anti-government demonstrators.

    He just doesn't get it does he? How can he expect to be leader of a country when he has killed his own people.
    I hope that the days of these mini dictatorships are over

    I love Africa and I am thrilled that the dictatorship of several African countries has been wiped out the past years.

    The transition into democracy will by no means be easy, but the countries are on the right way.

    Boy, you got that right. It is crazy out there. Kind of reminds me of the movie Children of Men. Anyhow, I heard a report today that stated the protesters intend to halt oil exportation until they can oust Kadafi. Interesting.

    Kadafi reminds me of an old, tattered beast of some sort. He is repulsive. A martyr? Wait, aren't martyrs people who are willing to die for a just case or belief, not criminals who have stolen from their people and tortured them when they complained about it? The man is deluded.

    His son's are just as crazy as their father is apparently!!

    The son of Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi, Seif al-Islam, has rejected reports that more than 250 people have been killed in the ongoing unrest in the country.


    In a televised speech on Sunday, Seif al-Islam said protesters attacked the roadblocks in Benghazi because they were furious, and 84 people were killed since the onset of massive demonstrations six days ago, Xinhua reported.

    Earlier on Sunday, security forces opened fire on thousands of people who had gathered to mourn for those killed on Saturday clashes in the eastern city of Benghazi.

    Seif al-Islam also said that dozens of protesters were arrested, including some campaigners, and the unrest was a plot against Libya orchestrated by foreign elements in the country.

    Gaddafi's 38-year-old son further rejected widespread speculations that Libya may be the next country after Tunisia and Egypt to see popular revolution.

    He emphasized that Libya is different from the two other African states and any separation will make the country fall back to the situation 60 or 70 years ago.

    Seif al-Islam also warned of civil war in Libya and denied reports that his father has left the country for Venezuela.

    According to a story I read a few years ago, Gadaffi is a heravy drug user/abuser. He smokes a lot of hashish. Just from looking at him I could have told that. Now he's acting out the paranoid delusional effects that long use of this stuff creates.
    This guy is going down, big time. I look for him to die when his palace burns.

    quote from OP.

    I sincerely say this and am not being sarcastic or flippant. My response is:

    Rest in peace.

    Libyans are digging their heels in protests in key cities - despite the violent response from the police as they try to curb the anti-government demonstrations. World leaders are rounding on Libyan authorities - calling for an immediate end to the clashes. Increasing numbers of protesters are demanding for an end to the 41-year rule of Colonel Gaddafi. Hundreds have been killed and over a thousand injured during a week of unrest, with reports of airstrikes from the country's own military on Monday. Rumours spread that the Libyan leader had fled the trouble, but Gaddafi later made a brief and defiant TV appearance saying he was still in the country. One of his sons blamed exiles and outsiders for pushing Libya to the brink of civil war, and denied that live ammunition was being used on demonstrators. Some Libyan ambassadors have quit over the use of force on civilians in protest, and want the UN to intervene.

    In 2005, I had the opportunity to travel outside of the US for the first time in my life. It was to Libya. I was with a delegation of women who attempt to forge friendships with our peers in countries not known to have "friendly" relations with the US. It was an amazing experience for me on so many different levels. The Libyan people were warm and gracious. They wanted us to know they were not their leader. They want the same things for their families that we want for ours. I have been watching events unfold with fear for those I met in Libya yet elation that perhaps they will be able to break free of the oppression of many years.

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands – Three Dutch marines are being held by authorities in Libya after they were captured by forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi while trying to rescue Dutch workers, a Defense Ministry spokesman said Thursday.
    The three were surrounded by armed men and captured Sunday after landing near Sirte in a Lynx helicopter that was on board the navy ship HMS Tromp, which is anchored off the Libyan coast to help evacuations from the conflict torn country, spokesman Otte Beeksma told The Associated Press.

    Arab League Calls For No-Fly Zone

    With the latest events in Libya, I wanted to post the following article to get caught up...
    Article Posted March 12, 2011:
    The United States on Saturday backed the Arab League's call for the United Nations Security Council to impose a no-fly zone over Libya, and Washington said it was preparing for "all contingencies."

    "We welcome this important step by the Arab League, which strengthens the
    international pressure on Gaddafi and support for the Libyan people," the White House said in a statement.

    U.S. Launches First Missiles Against Gadhafi Forces

    Tripoli, Libya (CNN) March 19, 2011 -- The U.S. military has launched its first missiles in Libya against Moammar Gadhafi's forces, a senior Defense Department official said Saturday.

    Earlier, French fighter jets deployed over Libya fired at a military vehicle on Saturday, the country's first strike against Moammar Gadhafi's military forces who earlier attacked the rebel stronghold of Benghazi.

    The French Defense Ministry, which confirmed the strike, said its attack aircraft being used to take out tanks and artillery have deemed Benghazi and the surrounding area an "exclusion zone."

    The French are using surveillance aircraft and two frigates in the operation to protect civilians. The aircraft carrier Charles De Gaulle will soon depart Toulon, France.
