It's becoming very clear that we are getting biased coverage from the main stream media, almost every one of the rebel claims has turned out to be false - the latest was that Gaddafi is leaving Libya, which is bs as the man himself said that he will never leave barely a week ago. The twitter accounts wishing for victory appear to be in western locations rather than in Libya itself, many parts of Libya don't even currently have internet. Please treat what you read with scepticism.
There is one very good news source and it's a blog by a Spanish lady who has many good connections inside Libya and is a frequent visitor herself, having lived there for several years. Please google leonorenlibia, or go to leonorenlibia.com . Also there are several youtube channels which although sound is Arabic, you can work out easily by date from what's claimed in news one day to seeing video of places that rebels claim to have taken seeing big protests in support of government. please don't believe everything you read, follow youtube 'Rayyisse'. Please also if you pray, pray for the Libyan people who don't want these very small minority of murderous, rapist and racist people governing them. And please don't accept everything you read in the main stream media as the truth, there is a dirty game afoot.

Your hero Gaddify intentionally kills his own citizens. That is why they are dying to kill him. And he will be a corpse soon...... Excellent end for a sick dictator...

Why did they kill him? Every Libyan has an AK-47. But Qaddafi is not afraid of anybody. For it - millions of people.
