Vowing to fight to his last drop of blood the defiant Libyan leader Gaddafi called on his supporters to strike back against protesters to defend his embattled regime in a televised statement which left people dumbfounded where he repeatedly shouted he was a fighter, a revolutionary from tents vowing to die as a martyr at the end.

His roaring calls indicated an escalation of the already bloody crackdown where the capital has witnessed scenes of chaos, wild shooting and bodies in the streets. He called on the men and women, who love Gaddafi to get out of their homes, fill the streets and attack the protestors in their lairs.

Following the speech State TV aired a crowd of Gaddafi supporters raising his portrait and waving flags in Tripoli’s Green Square while no anti-government protesters ventured out of their homes after dark
Oil prices soaring to the
highest level in over two years alarmed the international arena and European and other countries hurried to get their citizens out of Libya.

An emergency meeting was held by the U.N. Security Council condemning the crackdown, expressing “grave concern”, calling for an “immediate end to the violence” and steps to address the legitimate demands of the Libyan people.

Leaders worldwide including Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel and Secretary of State condemned Gaddafi’s speech  describing it as  extremely appalling stating it amounted to him declaring war on his own people adding the violence is completely unacceptable.

Libya’s own deputy ambassador at the U.N.  called for Gaddafi’s ouster, urging the world body to enforce a no-fly zone over the country to protect protesters.

To date Gaddafi’s retaliation has been the harshest in the Mid East world following the wave of anti-government protests which swept sweeping the Arab world.

A rampage by pro-Gaddafi militiamen and foreign mercenaries was described by Tripoli’s residence. They shot on sight anyone found in the streets and opened fire from speeding vehicles at people watching from windows of their homes.

One of the Libyan dictator’s closest associates, Abdel Fattah Younes, his interior minister and commander of the powerful Thunderbolt commando brigade, announced in Benghazi that he was defecting and other armed forces should join the revolt indicating a possible sign of Gaddafi’s regime.

Gaddafi portrayed the protesters as misguided drugged youths, who had been given drugs and money by a “small, sick group” to attack police and government buildings blaming Islamic fundamentalists and Libyans living abroad.

He urged supporters to take to the streets to attack demonstrators, promising police would not interfere.
Many army units in the east appear to have
sided with protesters, and other more institutional parts of his regime have weakened. A string of ambassadors abroad have defected, as has the justice minister.

Farag al-Warfali, a banker described Gaddafi as a criminal ready to do anything he maintained however that they were  ready for him adding  most of his officers have deserted him anyway stressing he only has the mercenaries left.

According to anonymous sources the mercenaries were given orders to shoot any moving human being with live ammunition, including ambulances, so wounded were left in the streets to die.

Navi Pillay, U.N. human rights agency head called for an investigation, stating that widespread and systematic attacks against civilians “may amount to crimes against humanity".
