Gadhafi's son: 'We will have victory soon'

[Updated at 4:20 p.m. ET] A son of fugitive Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi called Wednesday for fellow Libyans to rise up against the "gangsters," "rats" and "mercenaries" attempting to wrest control of his country.

"We will have victory soon," Saif al-Islam Gadhafi told Rai TV, a Syrian television station, in a telephone call.

"Everyone should move now, begin to attack these gangsters," he said. "Attack everyone, day and night, until we clean this country from those gangsters and those traitors."

He added, "Everyone is Moammar Gadhafi. Wherever you see the enemy, attack them. They are weak, they have suffered lots of losses and they are now licking their wounds."

Gadhafi did not divulge the whereabouts of his father, but said, "The leader is fine. We are fighting and we are drinking tea and drinking coffee and sitting with our families and fighting."

    If we invade and occupy a few more countries, we might even improve our national credit rating. I bet we would rate AAA plus plus plus if we simply took over Venezuela. (and "we" will, but only after we do Iran first. Wars are planned-iut years in advance. The Normandy invasion alone took Eisenhower nearly 2 years to plan. Hugo Chavez, pres. of Venezuela, has been preparing for US invading for going on, oh...10 yrs. or so. Have you seen his plans for defending Venezuela? Amazing stuff to be sure)

    Well, at least Gadhafi still has Israel on his side. Israel's MOSSAD was caught red-handed recruiting mercenary troops to help Gadhafi quell the rebelion. Mostly from Libya's poor neighbor Chad, where some 50,000 men, and even some women, took the 200 dollars per day offered. Gadhafi was charged 2,000 per day for each mercenary. (the death-toll in Libya stands around 60,000 according to current estimates given by rebel leaders...many if not most are innocent civilians, as per usual. And that's not counting the hundreds of thousands of beatings dished-out) God bless Israel my ass.

    Interesting enough for you to Google, Youtube, or read "Confessions of an Economic Hitman"? It's a book written by an former NSA agent. The NSA directs the CIA, as you know. Much of this 2006 best-seller is on Youtube now too. Checkity it outty. gn (oh, and Youtube also has the goods on Israel supplying troops to Gadhafi)

    @gung hoe:
    I know which one you are.
    The one who lives in MI, who has been married for 25 years, and who owns his own business.
    The one who has problems posting on his cell.
    I know the difference!
    The one with the (ahem) bad punctuation *because* of his phone.
    The one who's my friend.

    "We will have victory soon," Saif al-Islam Gadhafi told Rai TV.

    Sure you will. Gadhafi and his sons want their fellow countrymen to fight and die while they run and hide. I expect they are carrying so much money (USD) and gold with them that its hard to retreat very fast.
