"The colonialist countries are hatching a plot to humiliate the Libyan people, reduce them to slavery and control the oil," Gadhafi said on state television.
In a separate television interview with Turkey's public TRT channel, Gadhafi said, paradoxically, he was in favour of a move by the West to impose a no-fly zone over Libya to prevent his forces from attacking rebels from the air.
That would allow "Libyans to see through the real intentions (of the international community) — to seize our oil — and then they would take up arms (to defend the country)."
He's probably right about the oil bit, but he only really has himself to blame for the people uprising because of him being a ruthless dictator.!
