Mr. Qadaffi the megalomaniacal trickster of old Libya is threatening Europe. European â€œhomes, offices, families,â€ that is, unless old NATO ceases airstrikes on his regime â€“ airstrikes that have also inadvertently claimed the lives of civilians of the rebellion.
His life sought by the International Criminal Court, Mr. Qadaffi, delivered the warning in an audio message played to thousands of supporters gathered in central Green Square of Tripoli.
Impressively, SeÃ±or Qadaffi can still pack the crowds into the square for a reassuring show of solidarity with the Machavellian tyrant.
The Libyan lord said:
“These people (the Libyans) are able to one day take this battle … to Europe, to target your homes, offices, families, which would become legitimate military targets, like you have targeted our homesâ€¦We can decide to treat you in a similar wayâ€¦If we decide to, we are able to move to Europe like locusts, like bees. We advise you to retreat before you are dealt a disaster.”
The International Criminal Court has issued arrest warrants for Qadaffi, his son Seif al-Islam and Libyan intelligence chief Abdullah al-Sanoussi for crimes against humanity.
On Friday during his Green Square rant Qadaffi said Libyans who fled to neighboring Tunisia are “working as maids for the Tunisiansâ€¦What brought you to this stage? The traitorsâ€¦â€
He urged supporters to “march on the western mountains” clearing the region of weapons the French government delivered to the rebels there several days ago.
