Libya: 'Air Strike Destroys Gaddafi Residence'

Niall Paterson, defence correspondent, and Natalie Fahy An air strike has destroyed an administrative building at Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's residence, according to reports.

The news came as the White House said it did not recognise a ceasefire called by Colonel Gaddafi, and anti-aircraft fire continued in the skies above Tripoli.

The Libyan leader ordered armed forces to down weapons from 7.00pm, via a government spokesman at a press conference, but witnesses reported strong blasts and gunfire in Tripoli throughout the evening.

A 10 Downing Street spokesman responded to the Libyan announcement, following a meeting of the National Security Council, saying: "Everyone will recall that in recent days Colonel Gaddafi declared a ceasefire which was promptly violated.

"We said then we would judge him on his actions not his words - and we will do so again."

A no fly zone involves blasting the hell out of the dictator's compound, eh?

And BTW, we're fighting for Al Qaeda...

Libya: the West and al-Qaeda on the same side

I’m sure Mo Mar Mo Problems figured his Living Room wasn’t a good hiding spot. I think after the tent bombing 25 years ago, that the Frogs didn’t like, he is well fortified.

The French have gone downright Machiavelli in this confrontation. They aim to do KaDaffy a grievous harm. They must remember some dealing where KaDaffy boned ‘em.

What if it has anti-aircraft batteries on the roof? Aren't they a fashionable accessory for government strongmen? Just sayin'.

Black and White
Gaddafi made his first visit to Italy, Libya’s former colonial master, in 2009. He greeted Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi with a photograph of Omar Mukhtar, a Libyan resistance fighter who was hanged by Italian forces in 1931, wearing it pinned to his chest like a medal for an extra bit of chutzpah.

So who do you prefer in power in Libya---Qaddafi or Al Qaeda?

Choose one or the other.

Exactly, if Bush was doing this I would wholeheartedly support this action, because I know Bush would have the stones to stay and fight Al-Qaeda, once Kadaffy was out of the picture.

I don’t have that same trust with OBozo.

I can't imagine placing anything of a military nature in, or, or near a resident, automatically making it a target.
