Gaddafi Declares Reasons for Unrest

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi blamed a combination of  Al-Qaeda and drugs as the primary reasons for the mass uprisings in the North African country in recent weeks. Speaking from an unknown location, Gaddafi expressed incredulity that anyone over the age of 20 would participate in the protests impacting his nation, adding that the quality of life – seen through “low interest loans” and “cheap daily commodities” – remains remarkably good. Gaddafi’s comments come in the wake of reports by Al-Jazeera that pro-regime forces gunned down up to 100 protesters in fierce clashes today.

  1. Gaddafi’s statements keep on becoming more and more far out. They definitely show a disillusionment and detachment from reality. It seems Tripoli is going to have to be taken by force. It can only be hoped that more members of the armed forces will defect and being able to defeat the mercs and militias controlling Tripoli.
