Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi today urged all his supporters to defend the nation against NATO’s onslaught. Reports from Libya indicate that forces loyal to Gaddafi still hold parts of the capital city despite claims by Western media outlets of rebels’ control over 90 percent of Tripoli.
There are reports from Libya of nearly 25,000 members of the Warfallah tribe loyal to Muammar Gaddafi heading toward Tripoli to boost resistance of Libyans against NATO invaders. Libya was under Western colonial rule from 1911 to 1943 and there’s a growing fear that this oil-rich African nation is once again returning to its dark past.
The so-called National Transition Council based in Benghazi is comprised of technocrats and opportunists ready to act on behalf of their French, British and American benefactors in return for the reestablishment of another oil-hungry colonial regime in Libya.
In his telephone message Gaddafi called on his supporters to continue the fight until victory. He urged tribes to march on the capital and urged Muslims to rise up.
Contrary to NTC’s claims Muammar Gaddafi enjoys huge support inside Libya and other African nations including the neighboring Chad.
Gaddafi can count on solid support from within the country’s numerous tribes and continue to put up resistance for weeks, months or years.
Warfallah is Libya’s largest tribe and its members show loyalty to Muammar Gaddafi. If it’s true that 25,000 of Warfallah fighters are indeed joining the fight against NATO, we could witness a long protracted civil war across Libya and a halt to much needed oil exports to Europe for a long time to come.
