RTR2IW0J.jpg Saif al-Islam, son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and operator of an unhinged Twitter account, gestures as he speaks during an address on state television in Tripoli, in this still image taken from video, February 20, 2011. Saif al-Islam said Sunday the army stood behind his father as a "leader of the battle in Tripoli" and would enforce security at any price. His comments were the first official reaction from the Libyan authorities since the unrest began. Photo: Libyan TV


  1. “…Saif al-Islam said Sunday the army stood behind his father as a “leader of the battle in Tripoli” and would enforce security at any price.”

    Yeah, for sure. Unless the mothers, fathers, daughters, sons of the soldiers are part of the crowd of demonstrators. Gaddafis regime is old + sick and libyan people getting bored + tired. To listen to + watch the everlasting same dusty propaganda with no progress + no changes.

  2. Hmm, something is missing from this picture.
    Where is Colonel Gaddafi?!

    You’d think that — at a time of crisis such as this — the leader would show his face and make a stirring speech, instead of hiding and having his practically-unknown, heir-in-waiting do the heavy lifting…

  3. i saw the whole speech and i was stunned by his arrogance. he didn’t even try to make his points appear as a coherent spin. he almost seemed to be bored, as if he was talking about kids playing far too many practical jokes on the government.

    it was utterly disgusting. i am not sure if it was a good decision for his cause. but then again, i’m not sure if he has one, either.
