Gaddafi son says Nato bombers targeted

2011-07-04 22:43

Paris - The son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is warning the Western (Nato) powers currently bombarding his country that they could become a target if they continue to support the forces trying to oust his father.

In an interview on French television, Seif al-Islam Gaddafi also said Libya is ready to call a cease-fire, adopt a new constitution and hold democratic elections.

But he warned that, by supporting the Libyan opposition, Western countries "are going to be a reasonable target for us".

In a separate newspaper interview published on Monday, he said Libya is "ready to put in place a transition government" for three or four months.

A coalition including France, Britain and the United States are striking Gaddafi's forces under a UN resolution to protect civilians.

    I hope they take your un-democratic ass out.

      One thing is for sure. You make empty threats like that then the targets of your threats are going to make damn sure they get you first. Moron.

      They want Gadaffi to stop killing his people and leave Libya. And by them I mean just about every singly nation. It's not a complicated request, I can't see why Gadaffi couldn't do it.

    Interesting TamaraSays,is it not? Put whose democratic ass in?

  • rightguard - 2011-07-05 00:04

    It is interesting to learn that Libya spurned an offer from France to buy the Dassault-made fighter planes hence why France is such an active participant in this war.Contrast this with the illegal invasion of Iraq where France then held lucrative contracts with the Saddam Hussain regime.Needless to say what the French position then was having to take all the insults from the jack-boot Americans.Who still believe the Libyan mission is to protect civilian lives.Hands up please!

    We have no place in they're country! we ourselves give our brothers, children to be sacrificed for nothing! all in the name of "liberty" and "economy - money" We are the ones who are wrong for letting ourselves be used to shape the world for a one world government, which some brain dead people still think is just conspiracy but the politicians openly admit it to be our final goal and the shaping there of as we speak. Why are we fighting other peoples wars for all these lies and money? what do we love more, our people or money?

      Eugene, you have been reading more than what the headlines state. well done. Lets see, create disorder - check. Fuel human against human figthting - check. Offer solutions - check. Put controls in place for said solutions - check. Appear as the "prodigal son" - check. Make the massess dependant on the solution - check. The list goes on. Igonrance is easy to control and manipulate. (the anc model)

    Whoever strikes terror is a terrorist to me. Those who believe that bombing and killing Libyians will bring world piece are terrorizing Libyians, They are terrorists. Both sides in libyian fight are reported to be armed with powerful war weapons. They are not unarmed. Why are the Libyian soldiers reffered to as forces loyal to Gaddafi? Aren`t they Libyian army? Some choice of words are used to encourage the killing. So GROSS.

      zaatheist - 2011-07-05 04:17

      This is silly. If the allies had followed your advice then they would have tried to confront Hitler with kid gloves. In which case there would be no calm Africans left.

      freedom - 2011-07-05 06:59

      @calm africa, and what do you call a "leader" who has been in power for many years not elected by the people, doesn't believe in free and fair elections and a total dictator? I recall the world being up in arms when the old south africa was in a similar position, according to them.

      Warslat - 2011-07-05 07:13

      @ CalmAfrican. Terrorists are those who DELIBERATELY target civilian targets, like Lockerbie. It doesn't matter how noble the cause.

  • Anton - 2011-07-05 08:00

    The kind of language this criminal scumbag uses, is precicely the reason why the ICC is looking for him. Let's hope that very soon , someone of his inner circle will hand him over. This spoilt pathetic rubbish, just can't get it into his thick head, that after 41 years of Gaddafi terror, there is no place for this Gaddafi family in Libya, except maybe , a jail !!!

      Pragmatist - 2011-07-05 17:42

      The ICC has no credibility at all, just a political tool.

  • African - 2011-07-05 08:50

    Hands off America, Africa has capacity to solve its own problems, Americans have ulterior motives,

      DeonL - 2011-07-05 09:01

      Gaddafi is illegally in power since 1969, Africa will never sort him out.

      James - 2011-07-05 09:06

      Funniest thing I have read on the forums in a long time! Idiot!

      DJI - 2011-07-05 11:54

      HAHAHAHAHA, its great to have a good laugh every now and again, thanks African. I really enjoyed that. Or I hope you were not seriaaas?

      Mzungu - 2011-07-05 16:56

      African, you trust our leaders? Why have the AU not criticized this old dic...tator? We cant even chastise a little boy that is running a youth league. The African leaders arent in any position to criticise, nevermind 'solve the problem', because, they too, might suffer under the retribution of the masses they mislead

  • juliusedwa - 2011-07-05 10:11

    UN and NATO are western dogs just a steering to drive the western interests no doubts one day they will face the same consquences

      Mzungu - 2011-07-05 16:57

      These idiots can only shout...

  • Badballie - 2011-07-05 15:29

    Please do Gadaffi, the west may not be able to make you accountable to your maker but they sure can facilitate a meeting. Any attempt to target western countries will end with your people being exterminated and your country being reduced to a smoking radioactive crater

  • Nic - 2011-07-05 16:20

    Is all about controlling the resources...France promised to veto any decision to attack Iraq, why, they had contracts there. In the case of Libya, they are not in control of the Libyan oil, but after this war (and killing of Gaddafhi as it was their initial intention) they will put thier puppet suck all Libyan oil as if there is antidote in it. The big question is "in democracy do we support the government or rebels?" Forces loyal to Gaddafhi se voet. Soldiers are there to protect their country and all kinds of uprising...Can you guys wake up and smell the fresh air?
