Gadhafi: 'Dead, alive, victorious, it doesn't matter'

Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi addressed his country in a live audio broadcast Tuesday, vowing, "We will not surrender, we will not give up."

"We have one option - our country. We will remain in it till the end. Dead, alive, victorious, it doesn't matter," he said on state television.

His comment come on a day where at least 29 loud explosions rocked Tripoli around midday Tuesday as NATO airstrikes hit a military base and, according to Libyan State TV, leader Moammar Gadhafi's compound.

The compound was under "intensive continuous bombardment," according to State TV, which reported buildings and infrastructure in the area were destroyed in the strikes.

    "Dead, alive, victorious, it doesn't matter," If it doesn't matter to Quaddafy then I guess it doesn't matter to me, either.

    Off course you will be dead and victorious of the number of the innocents you have killed but I doubt you will break the world's record. I think Assad and Hitler has done worst than you did but I wish all dictators burns in hell fire.

    1st degree murder and assassination of a foreign leader to commit simple armed robbery is what
    America is all about it appears. But I guess we all know it by now don't we?

      Dead, alive, victorious–it doesn't matter, he is now an international criminal–not a foreign leader.

    If he is killed, he will have been victorious. If he is left alive, he will have been victorious. If he is victorious in any form or fashion, he will have so much more to tell his people and be proud of. Any way, he will be victorious, everybody else loses. That being the case, what is the US doing there?
