If I was a dictator with over 20 years on the job experience, locted in the middle east, I would be quaking in my boots.

It looks like Gaddafi, is going to fight to the finish. I can understand why, because he really has nowhere to go. His kid said in an interview they are not going to be taken over by the Italians or Turks, which I thought was funny. The Italians and Turks have not been in control of the area since prior to WW 1. I guess he was hoping past hatred would rally the people to come together.

Libya, has some oil, but is traditionally very tribal. I could see the country splitting in two if Gaddifi loses control. The thing that I am most worried about is all these countries being taken over by hard core muslims. A conservative religious government, no matter what religion, is typically not a free society.
200 killed.

Sure he's got somewhere to go. He's already left!

Libya's Muammar Gaddafi has left his country for Venezuela or Brazil, as protests calling on him to step down have turned violent, a report says.


Government's crackdown on people to put down the protests against Gaddafi's 41-year rule turned out to be counterproductive as demonstrations continued on Sunday.

The repression became bloodier when security forces opened fire on thousands of people gathered to mourn for those killed on Saturday clashes in Benghazi.

EU and US have condemned the suppression of pro-democracy protesters and expressed concern about "disturbing reports and images coming out of Libya."

The rights group Amnesty International has also urged the Libyan government to stop its crackdown on peaceful demonstrations.

Meanwhile, Libyan envoy to the Arab League Abdel Moneim al-Honi and the country's Ambassador to China Hussein Sadeq Al Misurati, have resigned to join the protests.

Al-Honi has submitted his resignation "in protest against the acts of repression and violence against demonstrators."

Al Misurati told Al Jazeera TV that he was not "honored to represent a regime that kills its people."

An opposition leader has said that all tribes across the country have joined the anti-government protests, reports said.

Latest figures show the death toll from clashes in Libya's massive popular uprising is nearing 300.

I was listening to Al Jazeera english feed last nite to get some info on Libya.They are usually the most update  source for any news in that area. They say there are conflicting reports if Gaddafi has left or not. They did mention that he has brought in some mercs, due to some in the army are going on to the side of the protestors. I think Libya is going to get really bloody.
 Here is their latest article for the area.

Yeah...I meant to come back and edit my post too. The only places I could find about Daddy G were what I consider spurrious news sources. So whether he's gone or not isn't known yet.

The country is too locked down to get good information out of there.  But I think Khaddafi thinks if he hits back hard enough, he can put a stop to the rebellion.  He may be right, but there will be a lot of dead people before he's through.  I wish the networks would send some drones over there or something.  Openness is what keeps dictator's guns at bay.  But if you think no one is watching...

Khaddafi may think that, but he's seriously wrong, or crazy. Wait. He is crazy!

There will be bloodshed but he'll be gone within a week, max.

I have seen it all 3 ways.
 I had the news on in the office and saw his speech. He looks like he should be playing saxaphone for Kool and the Gang. He is fighting to the end and what a bizarre speech, that is if the translator was correct. If I was the translator I would be tempted just to make some crazy stuff up.

Hopefully.  But tyrants have put down rebellions before.  It's not inevitable that the rebellion will succeed.

We have too few arabic speaking reporters who can get stories like he can.  Usually they hire local stringers who are... untrustworthy.

did he really?

Anderson said he wants to go and is trying to find a way in.. he said that right now you can basically just walk in thru Egypt, and he said it with a twinkle is in his eye..

if Engel's there, he'll go next...

he also said it beaucoup dangerous and since he's already had one scrap-up in this mess.. I fear for him if he gets into this mess..

lol...jb and I were talking about this this morning over coffee (Engel's my latest dork boyfriend). I was laughing that Anderson was so jealous of Engel he actually  twittered gleefully last night that he's made it into Libya.  Cheesy
