Going to Libya in 8 hours time! :weee:

Not going to be an easy trip though. Dubai - Amman, Amman - Benghazi, Benghazi - Tripoli, Tripoli - Sebha. But its well worth it!!
Enjoy your trip man. Can't wait to here some first hand accounts of what a free Libya will be like.

It always feels good to be home. But this time it feels ten times better than any other trip home for obvious reasons. The general mood is that of optimism, people seem happier than ever before, the future looks bright :tup:

Oh btw, I was reading an interview with Vittorio De Sica published in New York Times in 1972, I just thought it's good to post this bit here:

"Naturally, I did not agree with Mussolini’s policies, but I was saddened when I saw what the people had done to him. I was deeply disturbed that the Italian people had been brought to the point where they were capable of such a deed. There should be dignity in death, and to see that man hanging there in the square, his feet up and his head down…that was truly an ugly thing."

i always use that example in my defense of libyans, its a weak argument i know, but at least we didn't do anything to gedaffi after he died ala the italians with mussolini, we buried him a proper islamic burial and allowed his cousins to attend and pray on him, as for what was done to him when he was captured, it is too idealistic to expect any less imo.

Saif il Islam Gedaffi the son of Muammer Gedaffi has been caught and arrested today in the south of Libya, by rebels from the city of Shati and the city of Zintan. He was captured and taken on a plane to the city of Zintan where he is currently imprisoned.

Abdullah Senussi, head of Libyan intelligence under Gedaffi was captured today in the city of Shati. This is Gedaffi's right hand man, the man that executes Gedaffi's crimes ala Abu Slim massacre, the suppression of the Benghazi protests, the assassination of several Libyan opposition figures over the past 40 years. For me, this is bigger than the capture of Saif. Finally we got all the criminals, now we can focus completely on rebuilding the country.

One after the other they fall like dominoes.


Heres a video of Saif talking. He says he lost his finger due to a raid by what he called the crusaders and infidels (He's referring to NATO). He looks in good health and reports say that he was treated very well by the rebels. Completely different to what his father faced :D


That being said, they had to take a lot of precautions and it wasn't easy stopping the angry crowds that waited for him in Zintan wanting to take matters into their own hands. He's now being held in a secret place so that he won't get the same fate as his father.

I think its time for us to start the transition to being a democratic country, he should be treated well and he should be given a fair trial now. I just hope they don't give him over to the International Criminal Court.

Yes that is true. If she is in Libya she will definitely be caught as well. If not, then she'll probably get away with all she did. But the big criminals are now all in the bag, now all that is left are small timers ala Huda Ben Amer, Musa Ibrahim and a few others.

Sanussi's captured is still not confirmed though. Many conflicting reports no?

The rebels are confirming it, but they still haven't shown any pictures. There are some reports that his whereabouts are being kept secret because his tribe, the Megarha one of the biggest tribes in the South want to get him back because the rebels entered Gira(village populated by Megarha) without their consent. So there are complications there, but i think they did capture him.
