Official: Bombs hit near Gadhafi's compound

At least 25 loud explosions rocked Tripoli midday Tuesday, as NATO airstrikes hit a military base and near Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's compound.

Libya State TV reported that buildings and infrastructure near Gadhafi's compound were destroyed in the strike.

The blasts Tuesday and others Monday, that Libyan officials said hit state television buildings, elicited heated responses from a government spokesman.

"We believe NATO understands that its military campaign is failing miserably," said Musa Ibrahim, the government spokesman. "No one has the right to shape Libya's future except for Libyans."

Ibrahim said Tuesday's morning blasts hit the popular guard compound and revolution compound, which are military barracks near Gadhafi's Bab al-Aziziya compound.

  1. Anthony's Case Posts

    Caylee Anthony was reported missing to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office (Orlando, Florida, United States) on July 15, 2008,, by her grandmother, Cynthia (Cindy) Anthony. Caylee had lived in her grandparents’ home with her mother, Casey Anthony, until June 15, 2008. According to George Anthony, Caylee’s grandfather, Casey Anthony left the family’s home on June 16, 2008, taking Caylee, who was almost 3, with her. Cindy Anthony asked repeatedly during the month to see Caylee but Casey stated she was too busy with a work assignment in Tampa. At other times, she said Caylee was with a nanny at theme parks or the beach.

    Casey Anthony was first arrested on July 16, 2008, and was charged the following day with giving false statements, neglect of a child, and obstruction of a criminal investigation. The judge denied bail, saying Casey had shown “woeful disregard for the welfare of her child.”

    In mid-July 2008, Cindy and George Anthony received a notice that their daughter’s car was in a tow yard. George Anthony told an employee at the tow yard and later the police that when he picked up the car, the smell of the car had made him afraid that his daughter and granddaughter could be deceased in the trunk. When the trunk was opened it contained only a bag of trash.//*

    Authorities were able to determine that the boogers did in fact belong to her grandmother and were almost dry when they came out and so explaining why the pages of the diary had not been stuck together like if they were Casey's wet boogers that dried like cement in the labratory where the investigation was conducted before the other investigation was over with but right before her dad had purchased a box of Kleenex tissue from a hardware store?

    More wanton murders committed by the murderous thugs flying Nato's planes over Tripoli and other Libyan cities dropping 500lb. bombs as they go! I wonder just how they feel about butchering women and children. Then again,with their lack of morality,it wouldn't matter to them at all. Their callousness is truly beyond me!!!

    Gaddafi started RASCOM to put up a commercial telecommunications satellite for 1/10th the price the US demanded. He paid off African loans to stop seizure of assets by the IMF. He built a 25-year and $21 billion dollar aquifer to turn Libya into the food producer for Africa. He started the African Investment Fund and was establishing and African Central Bank. This is why they want him dead. It is an imperialist war.
