If you think that there’s been serious bloodletting in Libya up until now, wait until the rebels -including al-Qaida terrorists- that have been receiving major help from NATO, take over the capital of Tripoli. These are the same cut throats who beheaded captives in the center of the town under their control, and literally tore their bodies to pieces. It’s a mob mentality at work here, not unlike what took power in Paris during the French revolution, in other words it’s a real tyranny in the making. KGS
TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) – Libyan rebels said they launched their first attack on Tripoli in coordination with NATO late Saturday, and Associated Press reporters heard unusually heavy gunfire and explosions in the capital. The fighting erupted just hours after opposition fighters captured the key city of Zawiya nearby. Gunbattles and mortar rounds were heard clearly at the hotel where foreign correspondents stay in Tripoli. NATO aircraft made heavy bombing runs after nightfall, with loud explosions booming across the city.
“We planned this operation with NATO, our Arab associates and our rebel fighters in Tripoli with commanders in Benghazi,” Mustafa Abdel-Jalil, the head of the rebel leadership council, told the Arab satellite channel Al-Jazeera. Benghazi, hundreds of miles east of Tripoli, is the rebels’ de facto capital. Abdel-Jalil they said chose to start the attack on Tripoli on the 20th day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which fell on Saturday. The date marks the ancient Islamic Battle of Badr, when Muslims first fought for the holy city of Mecca in A.D. 624.
