Libya: The other side of the coin
Analysing the speech of Muammar al-Qathafi last Friday to the packed crowd in Tripoli, we can see how the Libyan Brother Leader thinks. Here is a summary of the speech with some comments, for our readers to see the other side of the story. And there is another side, as the mainstream media are starting to see. NATO committed a huge mistake.
For a start, the crowd packed into central Tripoli was massive. Eye witness reports of it being one million strong, and 1.7 million the previous Friday, would mean that these are among the largest demonstrations of support for a leader in history. Muammar Gaddafi started his speech by referring to "the masses of the free Libyan people" who in their great numbers, "send another message to the whole world".
Muammar Gaddafi then goes on to predict that "NATO will fall". Given that NATO obviously launched the "rebellion", arming and aiding thousands of marauding terrorists who proceeded to torch government buildings, destroy private property and run amok, slaughtering people in the streets, impaling young boys and raping little girls, NATO indeed has a lot to account for. Not least is the intended murder of the Colonel himself and the slaughter of his son and three grandchildren.
