August 2011 has become a historical month. The Libyan oppositions’ rapid advances of the past week have surprised many people. “The rebels’ speedy leap forward, after 6 months of largely deadlocked civil war, was packed into just a few dramatic hours. By nightfall, they had advanced more than 20 miles to Tripoli”, the media reported. It’s very interesting that exactly when Abdel-Fattah Younis, the Libyan rebels’ military commander, who was Gaddafi’s right hand man, was murdered by his rebel comrades after being arrested on suspicion of having remaining ties to Gaddafi’s regime , the stalemate in Libya was broken ! The story of Younis is very interesting. Some say that NTC was under pressure from the West to appoint him as the Libyan rebels’ military commander. And as you know, he was killed exactly one day after the end of the secret talks between Gaddafi and Britain in London ! Timing is very interesting. On 25 July 2011, William Hague said: “Gaddafi could stay in Libya”. On 26 July 2011, ICC said that Gaddafi can’t be left in Libya. On 27 July 2011, all Gaddafi regime’s diplomats leave London. And on 28 July 2011, Younis, the head of the rebels & Gaddafi’s right-hand was killed !! As we said before: “Younis was a controversial figure, having defected after quitting his post as Gaddafis interior minister at the start of the revolution. The media reported: Many in the rebel camp did not trust a man who had been a close confidant of Gaddafi for 40 years . The 67-year-old was among the military officers who joined Gaddafi in overthrowing Libyas king, Idris, in a coup in 1969. He then became one of Gaddafis closest advisers, training his special forces and being appointed interior minister, responsible for the Gaddafis internal security . Many Libyans were unhappy that a key member of the Gaddafi regime should have been appointed commander of opposition forces”. Anyway, Younis was killed, and the stalemate was broken ! And know Libyans are really happy. “It’s a great feeling. For all these years, we wanted freedom and Gaddafi kept it from us. Now we’re going to get rid of Gaddafi and get our freedom,” a young Libyan said. “I feel good but I can’t believe it yet,” said a rebel fighter. “Right now I don’t want to celebrate, I’m thinking of my friends, Mohammed and Alaa, they died for this. I don’t want to celebrate until I see the G-dog [Gaddafi] his head separated from his body .”
Now rebel flags were raised over many buildings in Tripoli, witnesses said. Yesterday, many people took cover inside their homes. “We are scared and staying in our houses, but the younger boys are going out to protect our homes,” said a woman in Tripoli. “we started hearing that Gaddafi had gone. People came out on the streets and some of the boys took their guns towards the ministries. But then the government started shooting”, said a man in Tripoli. “Some of the rebel fighters entering Tripoli from the western side of the city were greeted by cheering crowds, with some people tearing up portraits of Gaddafi . An engineer, one of those celebrating, declared: “This is the birth of new Libya. We are seeing our country coming out of a dark and frightening time. We welcome our young men who are bringing us freedom.” His friend added: “We now want to see justice catch up with Gaddafi and his family.” “Tripoli residents reported that many districts are in the hands of the opposition with the Shabab, youth volunteers , setting up road blocks of burning tyres and debris.”, the media reported. But the best news was what the ICC confirmed yesterday.”The International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor’s spokeswoman says it has been confirmed that Gaddafi’s son Saif al-Islam has been detained . Hours after Gaddafi congratulated his forces for standing firm, his son Saif al Islam was arrested by the opposition, the International Criminal Court confirmed.”, the media reported. Yesterday, Asharq Al-Awsat reported: “Gaddafi was preparing to move his family abroad after earlier transferring massive amounts of money . An official in the Libyan Government told us that Gaddafi does not intend to leave Libya at all and prefers to die resisting the attempt to break into or “invade” the Libyan capital instead of fleeing from it. The official said: “Gaddafi’s plan for escape is to remain. He will die if necessary or if the situation requires it. But under no circumstances he will flee. He will not leave.” An African source in Tripoli told us that “Gaddafi recently informed several African leaders that his enemies would be unable to reach him alive at the worst circumstances and that he would fight to the last breath.” A TNC official has told us that “our main option is to arrest Gaddafi alive if possible so as to try him and let the world see that the Libyans have principles and are not bloodthirsty. The second option is certainly killing him if his arrest is impossible.” Asharq Al-Awsat also added: “Gaddafi’s base in the fortified Bab al-Aziziya barracks at the center of Tripoli is under a heavy attack. Gaddafi is believed to live in secret underground tunnels under Bab al-Aziziya. According to Libyan officials, he secretly built several years ago a fully-equipped small town that enables him to live for a long period of time underground without anyone being able to locate him ” It can be a stupid myth about Gaddafi. If it’s true, why didn’t his sons go with him in that mysterious tunnels? It’s not clear where is Gaddafi. Is he in Bab al-Aziziya or in other part of Tripoli or Libya ? Next days will show us the truth.
In his second voice message, Gaddafi has pledged once again to remain in Tripoli until the end. “Speaking on state television via audiolink, for the second time on Sunday, the dictator sounded more measured than in previous, emotionally charged speeches. He said : “There are criminals, they are coming to destroy Tripoli. They are coming to steal our oil. “Now it [Tripoli] is in ruins. They are coming, they are destroying it. Come out of your houses and fight these betrayers[!] . Hurry up, hurry up, families and tribes, go to Tripoli [!!]. Call the tribes to go to Tripoli,” He added: “We will fight to the last drop of blood [!]. We will never give up“, the media reported. “Gaddafi has spent much of the past five months sleeping in Tripoli hospitals, or in rooms in the city’s largely empty five-star hotels. His other military forces have been severely weakened. Gaddafi’s eldest son, Mohammad, has told Al Jazeera he has been detained by rebels and was being kept under house arrest in Tripoli. The interview was cut off abruptly after he said gunfire had reached the house,” the media added. Rebel spokesman said the rebels want to see Gaddafi stand trial in Libya. “We want to see him be tried in Libya and not in any other place in the world”, he said. “It’s very hard to control the people and this emotion but we’re asking them not to take revenge. We’re doing every possible thing but after 42 years of dictatorship, people have the right to carry out their emotion. ” he added. Nato says in a statement that the Gaddafi regime is “clearly crumbling”. “The sooner Gaddafi realises that he cannot win the battle against his own people, the better -so that the Libyan people can be spared further bloodshed and suffering. Now is the time to create a new Libya – a state based on freedom, not fear; democracy, not dictatorship; the will of the many, not the whims of a few “, they said. Finally after all Nato’s secret talks and deals with Gaddafi and after all western secret talks and deals with Gaddafi , the politicians could not deceive public opinion in the 21st century, the age of Internet and information, and Gaddafi reached the end of the line. Now only Hugo motherf-u-c-k-e-r Chavez, and a handful of other stupid bastards defend Gaddafi. Yesterday, Hugo motherf-u-c-k-e-r Chavez who has been a staunch defender of the Gaddafi regime, condemned attacks, saying the aim is to seize control of the country’s oil wealth ! I hope this little Venezuelan monkey and all other savage tyrants, especially Khamenei and Assad, meet their friend Gaddafi in hell, very very soon. I think after Libyans, the Syrians and Iranians are the second happiest people in the world. They wish they saw the end of Khamenei regime and Assad regime in the near future.
