Gaddafi Speech I will fight till death and die a martyr
Posted by TwitC
The Libyan leader has vowed to fight till the death and die a martyr in his homeland, refusing to step down amid widespread anti-government protests. In his first major speech since the unrest began, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi talked of the 'cowards and traitors' responsible for the uprising. Referring to protesters as 'rats', Gaddafi urged his supporters to take to the streets and attack the opposition who he claimed were bribed, drugged and 'serving the devil.' The Libyan interior minister has defected and joined the protesters calling on the army to follow and support the people's demands for change. Several Libyan ambassadors have also quit in protest over the use of force on civilians, demanding the end of Gadaffi's decades-long rule. The country's leader reportedly ordered the army to use airstrikes against the demonstrators - something he denies. Several hundred have been killed and over four thousand injured in the first week of violence, making it the bloodiest of all the Arab revolts.
