Gaddafi leaves Libya: Report


www.presstv.ir

Libya's Muammar Gaddafi has left his country for Venezuela or Brazil, as protests calling on him to step down have turned violent, a report says.


Pro-democracy protests sparked by the popular revolutions that deposed long-serving rulers of neighboring Egypt and Tunisia have engulfed Libya since last week with thousands of people flocking the streets of the eastern city of Benghazi, and calling for the ouster of the 68-year-old Gaddafi, who has been in office since September 1969.

Please please please please please?

That would be nice. Another going down!

Hopefully this is true... waiting for more sources to confirm!

That would be epic.

Come on!!!!!!!! If this is true, I hope he's caught, tried and convicted for war crimes... ordering the army to shoot peaceful protesters... not to mention the whole business of the Lockerbie bomber.

Hell yeah, looks like one of the bigger snakes have finally been driven from his spider-hole of a country. Hopefully the banks will seize his accounts and repatriate all the money he's looted from the Libyans over the years.

If he disappears without abdicating, they are going to have a domestic crisis on their hands.

There is a massive power vacuum forming in the middle east. Lets hope popular and democratic powers are unified enough to fill the void.

In any case, there are truly interesting times.

They could follow the Egyptians lead and have the military seize control and call for elections in 6 months. Obviously when you're overthrowing a dictator it doesn't really matter if he abdicates or turns power over to an appointee, the idea is to get rid of the lot.

If this is true, then it's huge.

3 in a row, all deposed within weeks of the unrest starting. This wont stay in just the middle-east. I reckon we can look forward to other continents experiencing the same effect.

Now all we need to do is tie in this surge for freedom and democracy with a strong anti-corporate and anti-rich people theme and we've got ourselves a global revolution.

What I'd give to be able to get the message of Roddenberry and / or Zeitgeist to the forefront with all this RIGHT NOW.

Presstv is an Iranian government site. Sometimes they are barely any better than Weekly World News and just like to post articles to stir up stuff.

Take anything on their with a big grain of salt and look for verification from other sites

Wow, he's been in power since 1969? I was only 10 years old at the time. How can people of any country allow someone to be in power for that long? I hope Egypt's overthrow of their dictator is a domino effect around the world. When you think about it, we complain about dictators in other countries, but we have dictators in our own congress and in the Senate. Our "career politicians don't deserve to be in power until they retire." Public service doesn't mean you reap the benefits and you hold onto power until you're in poor health or retire. We need to start demanding term limits on our own politicians, and start demanding corporations and interest groups to remove themselves from the halls of congress and stop bribing members of congress!

I want to see the fat royal Saudi's on a jet out of town (assuming they'd fit in the plane). Each passing day american colonialism is losing her foothold and arguably her reign over these nations.

Saudi arabia? American Colonialism? You should check your history, while there is a lot of foreign influence in what led to those countries coming about, it was not the US that played a role in the Saudi monarchy and the Saud family coming to power.

We do not reign over Saudi Arabia, or any other arab country for that matter. and we used to have a lot more military bases in the arab countries in the 1950s than we do now

Hopefully the last bullet ends up in their little brains.


The Associated Press later reported the son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi saying protesters had seized control of some military bases and tanks.
