Defiant Muammar Gaddafi's troops shoot protesters as leader vows to stay put. Defiant leader tells country "I'm still here" Denounces protest leaders as rats Warns Libyans they face death sentence LIBYAN dictator Muammar Gaddafi was clinging to power yesterday as his troops gunned down protesting civilians - prompting international condemnation and even cries of genocide from members of his own government and military.
Speaking in a loud voice and saying he "saluted" the country's youth, Gaddafi announced he had no intention to step down as other African leaders had and vowed to "die a martyr" in Libya as "head of the revolution. " He added that Libya's image was being distorted by Western media and denounced those instigating the protests as "rats" who had been "seduced" into demonstrations with money and drugs, adding that Libyans were "defying the tyranny of the US and those powerful countries" instead of rebelling against their own regime.
Libye - Où en sommes nous ce matin (22/02/2011) ? La Libye de Kadhafi n'existe plus. Turmoil in Gadhafi regime, Lybia. ASSOCIATED PRESS February 21, 2011 8:26PM Updated: September 24, 2012 6:25AM CAIRO (AP) — A defiant Moammar Gadhafi vowed to fight to his “last drop of blood” and roared at supporters to strike back against Libyan protesters to defend his embattled regime Tuesday, signaling an escalation in a crackdown that has thrown the capital into scenes of mayhem, wild shooting and bodies in the streets.
The speech by the Libyan leader — who shouted and pounded his fists on the podium — was an all-out call for his backers to impose control over the capital and take back other cities. After a week of upheaval, protesters backed by defecting army units have claimed control over almost the entire eastern half of Libya’s 1,000-mile Mediterranean coast, including several oil-producing areas.

Stop the Massacre - Save the Libyans Petition. The international news organizations are broadcasting atrocities that are being committed against unarmed civilians in Libya that could be considered crimes against humanity.
This country has been ruled with an iron fist for the past 42 years by the notorious regime of Muammar Gaddafi. While claiming to have a unique form of direct democracy, the regime has never tolerated any dissent, and has carried out many atrocities over the decades it has been in power oppressing its people, including public hangings, long-term imprisonments without trial, and the infamous massacre of 1270 prisoners in the Abusleem prison in Tripoli in 1996.
China official warns of domestic unrest and "hostile" West. Beijing - The Chinese government faces a turbulent time of domestic unrest and challenges from "hostile Western forces" that it will fight with more sophisticated controls, a Communist Party law-and-order official said.
A man is arrested by police after internet social networks called to join a "Jasmine Revolution" protest in downtown Shanghai February 20, 2011. REUTERS/Carlos Barria Chen Jiping, deputy secretary general of the Communist Party's Political and Legal Affairs Committee, gave the toughly worded warning in this week's issue of Outlook Weekly, and blamed Western democratic countries for fomenting unrest. He did not mention the protests that have rocked authoritarian governments in the Middle East, and his words reflect the Communist Party's own homegrown fears. But the uprisings that deposed Egypt's long-time president Hosni Mubarak and are now threatening Libya's strongman Muammar Gaddafi are likely to reinforce the views of Chinese security officials like Chen.

Tentative de coup d’Etat à Tripoli ? Profile: Muammar Gaddafi - In Depth. Libya's Colonel Muammar Gaddafi has been Africa's and the Arab world's longest-ruling, most erratic, most grimly fascinating leader - presiding for 42 years over this desert republic with vast oil reserves and just 6 million people.
For years, he was an international pariah blamed for the 1988 bombing of a Pan Am jumbo jet over Lockerbie, Scotland, that killed 270 people. After years of denial, Libya acknowledged responsibility, agreed to pay up to $10 million to relatives of each victim, and Gaddafi declared he would dismantle all weapons of mass destruction. That eased him back into the international community. But in February, days after the uprising against him began, Gaddafi gave a televised speech amid violent social unrest against his autocratic rule. In the speech, he vowed to hunt down protesters "inch by inch, room by room, home by home, alleyway by alleyway. " A UN First!
