Gadhafi's troops to help Benghazi residents evacuate, son says

Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's forces will take up positions around Benghazi on Saturday or Sunday to assist people fleeing the city, said his son, Saadi Gadhafi.

The younger Gadhafi said there will be no large-scale assault. Instead police and anti-terrorism units will be sent into the rebel stronghold to disarm the opposition.

    I greatly applaud this idea that Qadaffi's son has. At least this should save a lot of lives but the right-wing thugs in Washington won't like it,however. The less bloodshed,the better!!!

      Thank you,Cesar. You took the words right out of my mouth. Those right wing thugs in Washington are aching like the dickens to get us into Libya's civil war although we have no business there at all.

    Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's forces will take up positions around Benghazi on Saturday or Sunday to "assist" (read: to shoot) people fleeing the city, said his son, Saadi Gadhafi.

    I find it unbelievable, Mr. Q's son says he will assist them out. Is that with their arms twisted behind their backs. Since there was not going to be any mercy before. Now he is assisting them. Like a wolf taking grandma across the street.Tisk, tisk..
