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."

    The 'REAL" rats have already left the sinking ship! All their threats & chest pumping, now just hot air, looking over their shoulders to see whose crosshairs they are in.

    They should nuke the rebels. NATO and USA had no right interfering in another countries business. Someone should bomb the USA to teach them a lesson to but into people's business.

    Now you can try to fool me all you want into believing things could have been different had I only not (insert behavior here).. I know better and so do you. Since I've paid my debts many fold over the only one left to pay is you. I'm willing to bet you don't think I have the guts to do what needs to be done. I'm just waiting a bit longer so I can go have a good time before I leave.
