Libya teetering on the edge...

David Horsey,,
David Horsey,, Gadhafi

Good morning, Netizens...

We had the opportunity to take Moammar Gadafi's regime down, put it out of power, in 1996 but we couldn't get the job done. Perhaps now it is too late, as some animals will not be put down without a fight. Gadhafi appears to have lost the support of at least one major tribe, several military units and his own diplomats, including Libya’s ambassador in Washington, Ali Adjali. Deputy U.N. Ambassador Ibrahim Dabbashi accused the longest-serving Arab leader of committing genocide against his own people in the current crisis.

Libya's second-largest city Benghazi purportedly is in protesters’ control and its capital, Tripoli, is in a state of chaos and pandemonium. Pro-Gadhafi gunmen are purportedly firing from moving cars and even shooting at the facades of homes to terrify the population.

Now that Gadafi is all but cornered, according to David Horsey, like some wild animals, it appears Gadafi will not be put down without a fight. Of course, your results may differ...
