Libyan warplanes bombarded a rebel stronghold with seven air-strikes as desperate Colonel Gaddafi tried to prevent them closing in on his Tripoli safe haven. The assaults came as rebel leader Mustafa Abdel Jalil gave Gaddafi 72 hours to step down and leave Libya.

The head of the rebel National Libyan Council said: ‘If he leaves Libya immediately, during 72 hours, and stops the bombardment, we as Libyans will step back from pursuing him for crimes.’ He said the deadline would not be extended beyond 72 hours.

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s forces are reportedly using tanks and warplanes to attack the rebel-held town of Zawiyah in western Libya.

One eyewitness, who wished to remain anonymous, compared the town to “a city of ghosts” because of the violence and bloodshed.

He told Sky News: “Here, it is chaos. Buildings completely crumbled, mosques brought down to ashes, blood flowing through the streets.

“No human should go through this… what kind of human would do this to another human?”

  1. note:

    the gunner was given credit for the kill but if you look closely there is a flame near the ground and a projectile moving toward the plane. At that point you can see the plane making a hard turn.

  2. If the west leaves this conflict alone, as I assume they are doing, then once an Islamic government is formed in Tripoli, the former rebels will remember that no-one helped with direct military aid. As in air strikes and the like.

    You cannot call any rebellion in Islamic countries merely a “local” conflict that only has limited effects. Think of Iran or Afghanistan, for example. Both countries accepted western aid in the form of arms during their “revolutions”, but the west did nothing to stop the hard-line Islamists from taking over, with obvious results.

    If the Libyans succeed in taking out Khadaffi (or however you spell it), then it leaves a perfect opportunity for hard-liners to take over.

    The west should cheer Khadaffi’s demise, but will they cheer when the former rebels turn off the oil because nobody was there to help?

  3. @RRWest

    are you suggest we should help? Why we always turn it over to Islam and Sharia law in the end.

    It is pointless to help.

  4. The Caliphate is being reformed, some time before Obama is out of office (probably this summer) they will attack Israel, when that happens the war will spread around the world.
