Kadhafi’s Son ‘Will Fight To Last Bullet’

From the Agence France-Presse:

Kadhafi son warns of ‘rivers of blood’ in Libya

February 21, 2011

TRIPOLI (AFP) – Libya faces civil war and "rivers of blood", the son of its leader Moamer (sic) Kadhafi (sic) warned on Monday, as a brutal crackdown failed to stop an unprecedented popular uprising from reaching the capital.

With gunfire crackling in the streets of Tripoli, and Human Rights Watch putting the death toll at 233 since Thursday, Saif al-Islam Kadhafi vaguely promised reforms as he condemned the revolt as a foreign plot.

"Libya is at a crossroads. If we do not agree today on reforms… rivers of blood will run through Libya," he said in a fiery but rambling televised speech that betrayed a note of desperation within his father’s 41-year regime.

"We will take up arms… we will fight to the last bullet. We will destroy seditious elements. If everybody is armed, it is civil war, we will kill each other… Libya is not Egypt, it is not Tunisia."

Clearly Mr. Kadhafi (sic) is right about this. The media is practically ignoring Libya. Apparently, our news people are only interested in uprisings in countries that are allied with America.

Heavy gunfire broke out in central Tripoli and several city areas on Monday for the first time since the uprising began in eastern Libya, witnesses and an AFP journalist reported…

Several witnesses said fire had been set to public buildings overnight, including the state broadcasting offices and branches of the People’s Committees that are the mainstay of the regime.

Some 500 Libyans meanwhile stormed and looted a South Korean construction site near the capital on Monday, injuring about 15 Bangladeshi as well as three South Korean workers, Seoul’s foreign ministry said…

In our country they loot shoe stores.

In London, British energy giant BP said it was preparing to evacuate some of its staff from Libya, which holds Africa’s biggest oil reserves.

In Brussels, Spain’s Foreign Minister Trinidad Jimenez said the 27-nation European Union was "coordinating the possible evacuation of EU citizens coming from Libya, especially from Benghazi."

In Cairo, Libya’s envoy to the Arab League said he had resigned to "join the revolution."

Tripoli’s ambassador to Delhi also quit, as did a lower-level diplomat in Beijing who said Kadhafi may have left the country, Al-Jazeera television reported

Saif al-Islam Kadhafi, 38, who holds no formal government post but wields vast influence as his father’s heir apparent, suggested that Benghazi, long an opposition hotbed, was out of government control.

"At this moment there are tanks being driven by civilians in Benghazi," he said, insisting the uprising was aimed at installing Islamist rule and that it would be ruthlessly crushed

The terrible thing is Mr. Kadhafi (sic) may well be right. And we might long for the days when Libya was helmed by the comparatively sensible Moamer (sic) Kadafi (sic).

    Kadhafi, Khaddafi, Qadhafi, Khadafy, Gaddafy, Gaddaffi…its potato pahtahto. There’s no standard transliteration from Arabic to English or French, so anything goes. Speaking of dictators, here’s news from Quadarky’s former neighbour…HOSNI MUBARAK, ex-president of Egypt and America’s ex-best friend, starring in “Hangin’ on the Telephone”!

    “Excellency?”

    Hosni Mubarak lay on the recliner, staring out across the restless waters of the Red Sea. Silent and motionless in his black suit and sunglasses, he ignored the voice of Salim, his faithful dragoman.

    “Excellency? The telephone, Excellency”.

    Long seconds ticked by into longer minutes…at last Mubarak’s lips moved and he spoke in a voice like the slow creaking of rusty hinges. “The telephone? What is it?”

    “It is an instrument commonly used for communication over distances, Excellency” said Salim, falling for the ancient gag. “But that is not important now. There is a telephone call for you, Excellency”.

    “Is it Obama?”

    “Um, no, Excellency”.

    Mubarak sighed. “Then you may as well throw the telephone in the sea. He isn’t going to call. He doesn’t want to know me anymore. He said I was his ‘friend’, he said I was a ‘force for stability’, he said I was a ‘trusted ally’, he said I could have two billion f***ing dollars a year for life and a bunch of F-16s and then, as soon as a few trouble makers hit the streets, he drops me like a bad habit”.

    “Most regrettable, Excellency” murmured Salim.

    Mubarak sighed again. “It is safer to be an enemy of America than a friend. You wouldn’t believe the amount of scrapes I got those stupid Americans out of. I earned those Swiss bank accounts! I worked hard for the money but now…now it’s all over. He’s never going to call. No way. Throw the phone in the sea”.

    “Excellency?”

    “Throw it in the sea, I said” snapped Mubarak, with a flash of his old authority. “Don’t make me beat the soles of your feet with jumper cables! Do it, I say! You’re my butler, aren’t you?”

    “I’m not a butler” flared Salim. “I’m a dragoman – and that’s different. I don’t have to take orders off you!”

    Mubarak sighed yet again and fell back on the recliner. “Yes, that’s what they all say nowadays”.

    Just going to play a bit of devils advocate here (ironic phrase isn’t it) – What if this is really an uprising of young, freedom seeking people not wanting to be told what to do by a bunch of hypocritical cultists? Could this not be the result of such a massive flow of information to the World? Where people are seeing that others don’t live in 3rd World cesspools of hatred and poverty?

    Just askin’!

      I see more of that pro-Western youth element in countries like Iran, not Egypt. In Iran I’ve heard that it’s fashionable to visit modern art galleries and secret parties; until the recent regime cracked down on dress the women tried to wear brightly colored head scarves and show more of their hair, shorter coats, etc. I’ve also heard that it’s not uncommon to listen to western music and install illegal satellite dishes to receive international tv. They are still on the whole very anti-semitic and anti-Israel but they appear to want more social freedoms.

      I can’t say the same thing for the Egyptians – the mob of “freedom loving” Muslim protesters raped and beat that journalist last week, and the savages chanted “Israeli” or “Jew” as they did it.

      I’m sure a lot of the uprisings are about resisting despotism and general unrest about employment, living conditions, etc, but I don’t doubt that a large number are also Islamic “resistance” fighters (they seem to stir up political trouble in every Muslim country) who only want democracy to elect a non-democratic government. If they think that placing a noose of shariah law around their people’s every whim is a good way to reduce unemployment or stir innovation in the region they are deeply mistaken.

  3. The headline should read ‘Khadaffi Ducked’. DRUDGE reports that he’s flown the coop. Looks like the last bullet will have to be fired by his son. Not bloody likely. By the end of the day Libya will be one more ripe and low-hanging fruit to be plucked by IslamoNazis for their New Caliphate.

    Islam is rising again to challenge the Western Tradition worldwide. If we lose, they’ll immediately turn on each other with nukes. That will be a pretty picture!

    This isn’t going to turn out well no matter how it shakes out.

    Remember, chaos is the primary ingredient for the Twelvers, and Khomenei claims he has met with the Occluded Imam. Now knows who he is.

    Several months before all this started to “spontaneously erupt”.

    What I find the most laughable is that in the 1960’s, Libya enjoyed great prosperity due to the US dollar. And, there were troops stationed there. Then, Go-Daffy took over and the paradigm shifted to rubles and there was still some level of financial security. Then, they pissed the USSR off…and the pipeline of money and arms dwindled to a trickle. Then the USSR fell (because it went bankrupt [see 'Socialism, How To Use Other People's Money']) and then Libya was really in pain…so it started to negotiate for oil deals with BP, which of late has resulted in some very unfavorable press regarding the mastermind of the PanAm bombing.

    But now we come to today where radical muslims will get their chance to take over yet another sand trap and live the lives of kings once again. Only, who’s gonna funnel money into *gag* Libya now? Sure, it has oil. But that alone isn’t the necessary thing to create any kind of stability. Sure the West needs it…but we have megabarrels of our own and it’s eventually going to have to dawn on the idiot in the oval office that we need it and you’d better not keep us from it.

    But back to Libya–By destabilizing the area, which includes Egypt now and having it all radical muslim-ized, the US will not do business with them in any way and it’s even doubtful that China would, either. India just got shot in the foot here, too. Let’s face it, the muslims hate everyone, including themselves and this is what results. Anarchy. It happens there every so many generations or less. It’s actually just a bigger version of “king of the hill” with whack-jobs usually winning because they have fewer inhibitions about killing other people. I mean, look at who the “leaders” are in the arab-infested worlds. Aside from the fact that obama would just LOVE to have that kind of authority, these crazies are pure nuts. There’s no other way to say it.

    So, in part they will be successful in routing any remaining vestiges of western influence (BP, etc) and thus isolate themselves from the rest of the world. It has worked out so well every time it’s tried. Especially in a land that has some of the poorest people on Earth. As many have said, were it not for petroleum, this whole issue would never even happen. But with western money funding terrorists, it was inevitable. But now they have intentionally cut themselves off from their last hope for money. Russia may still buy oil from them…but it’s unlikely unless they have complete and total control over it. Same with the US. Both scenarios are unrealistic.

    He will? Funny, but I remember his daddy going into hiding and not making a PEEP for YEARS after the Gipper tried to take him out. My guess is that Jr. will be happy to have his MINIONS fight to the last bullet, while he flees to Paris.

    Kadhafi’s kid may want to look at how well the “last bullet” strategy worked for Uday and Qusay Hussien.

      However, the gorilla in the room is that the middle east fanatics KNOW without a doubt that the US will not lift a finger to interfere in any way. This is a big reason why it’s all happening now, I think. The time is right now that this president’s little girlie-man tendencies are apparent. In past years, muslims hated and wanted to kill Americans, but were also held partly in check by the notion that the “crazy American dictator Bush, or even Clinton” would launch attacks on them. And well, Clinton did a sort of half-assed assault with some cruise missiles. But in these times, they are now aware that Obama has neither the balls, nor the ability to get the backing to do anything against any muslim nation, either overtly or covertly.

    Scores die in third day of Libya’s anti-Gaddafi protestsGaddafi recruits “African mercenaries” to quell protests
    19 Feb 2011 DUBAI (Al Arabiya)

    Libya recruited hundreds of mercenaries from Sub-Saharan Africa…

    The witnesses said protesters in Benghazi caught some “African mercenaries” who spoke French and who admitted that they were ordered by Muammar Gaddafi’s son, Khamis Gaddafi, to fire live ammunition at demonstrators…

    …, after Human Rights Watch reported security forces killed at least 84 people over three days, including 35 in Benghazi on Friday.

    Arbor Networks, a US-based tracker of online traffic, said Internet services were cut overnight.
