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.

    That compound has been hit 3 or 4 times. Why do they keep hitting this same target? This is the same compound that Ronald Reagan targeted. What is left of this place?

    It isn't The US that is there it is NATO..... I believe all the bombing from planes have been done by Canadian and British planes..... The US is giving support from sea and refueling planes....I Think Obama didn't want to get involved this time.... I may be wrong but that is what I heard....

    He is a petty dictator who kills those among his people who disagree with him. This is judged by us as being evil. On the other hand, the west is becoming ( or has become) a very powerful dictator who will kill those among his people who disagree with us. This is judged by us as being good. Go figure.

    Dave, Obama is far from being the best president ever. On the other hand, he is far from being the worst. Before he was elected, I said that Jimmy Carter would go down in history as one of the worst Presidents ever and probably the worst modern President. Later, before he was elected, I said that George W. Bush would make Jimmy Carter look good by comparison. I think both my predictions are validated by history. Obama's place in history, other than being the first African-American President, remains to be determined. One thing is for sure – The Onion had it about right when its headine after the 2008 election read "Black Man Gets Worst Job in Country." He inherited an absolute mess created by the lies, incompetence, and ideological nonsense of his predecessor and it has been made all the more difficult by obstructionist Republicans in the Senate blocking damn near everything he has tried to do. And now the Know Nothing Tea Baggers and other ignorant, truth-loathing right wind idiots are out in full force. There was a time when it was possible to be a Republican and have some self-respect. No longer. And the country is the worse for it.
