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."

No, not Gaddafi’s clothes closet!!!
Yep, I agree....
So they are out to kill him then? So much for it just being a no fly zone.
these people are creepy!
And BTW, we're fighting for Al Qaeda...
“A 10 Downing Street spokesman responded to the Libyan announceme...”
Shouldn’t Mr. Fish n’ Chips be spending more time at the dentist and less at the microphone?
What a weird couple of days, huh?
>>No, not Gaddafis clothes closet!!!<<
From riches to rags — in that one spot?
(I am sure he is in one his 155 other palaces, just like any other modest muslim leader).
He can buy gaudy draperies anywhere. He'll get over it.
“A no fly zone involves blasting the hell out of the dictator’s compound, eh?”
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.
O, you’ll always be eight letters short.
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.
Gaddaffi was quoted as saying;
“I thought that SOB reagan was dead !”
is the destruction of a residence justified in the wording of the UN resolution??
survey says.....hussein dunham is a fraud....
What if it has anti-aircraft batteries on the roof? Aren't they a fashionable accessory for government strongmen? Just sayin'.
It’s been a weird decade IMHO. We are being so setup with this Libya mess! I truly believe we will see a terrible terror attack accelerated in the coming months...
But, the Taliban, Chavez, Cucinich and Farakhan are against us.
Very confusing this :P
Did they use Reagan’s old coordinates?
take a stroll down memory lane as the duds go up in smoke
I’ll bet he’s in the tent.

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.
Wherever he is, it’s an attempted assassination, which is trouble for Obama ... unless this was a false flag action
Bet’s are he’s heading south......and to be cut off
Another bet, British SAS are on his ass..........
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.
>>hey aim to do KaDaffy a grievous harm. They must remember some dealing where KaDaffy boned em.<<
They probably owe him money.
assassination will come from Britain
Gaddafi may become target of air strikes, Liam Fox admits
They do owe him for Lockerbie.
So ... we’re attacking his bases, but we’re not supposed to take him out?
WooHoo! Residence destroyed. 1 down, 25 to go.
Sarkosy doesn’t want to pay back the loans he got from kadaffi to finance his last campaign.
Obama is a warmonger supported by Haliburton. \2006
Let’s see.... Reagan got one..... Hillary/Obama got one.... 475yrs more and we’ll have pinned that basturd down!
even better, the One wants to secretly be the Great One. Ronald Reagan.
which is in a no-fry zone.
Send in the Saudis, they were destroying mosques in Bahrain.
Actually he probably is in a tent,.
Doesn’t matter I’m sure in the end, the French and Brits will walk away and leave americans to pay the reconstruction bills. Bet on it!!!
The two mooslum sects, don’t respect each others mosque but they will kill you if you don’t.
Thanks! The captions are excellent, lol. In #7 he looks like Uncle Buck (or Cousin Eddie). Michelle would no doubt covet the outfit in #14. He still looks better than the insecure, disheveled FLOTUS.
