It looks like CNN got themselves an exclusive thingy-thang on their hands with is making a huge deal about this whole Gaddafi compound thing. The fact that Gaddafi wasn’t the target makes it more interesting, really. (EDIT: Take that back … wasn’t exclusive.)

What is happening in Libya differs from the aim of imposing a no-fly zone, and what we want is the protection of civilians and not the bombardment of more civilians.
Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa • Speaking about the current airstrike campaign in Libya. It’s important to note that the Arab League — who, as you might remember, wanted a no-fly zone in Libya — is speaking out against the current campaign. Moussa says he’s also calling for an emergency Arab League meeting. So this could become more of a “thing” than it already is. source (viafollow)

You have proven to the world that you are not civilized, that you are terrorists — animals attacking a safe nation that did nothing against you.
Muammar Gaddafi • Offering, on Libyan state television, his personal assessment of the countries currently bombing the heck out of Libya. According to CNN, an image of a fist crushing a plane that said “USA” – which kinda looks like this — flashed on the screen. No symbolism in that whatsoever.  source (viafollow)

producermatthew:

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi sent President Obama a letter before Operation Odyssey Dawn, calling the President Libya’s “son” and expressing hope that the military action would not “change your image with me.” (MSNBC)

If that’s the case, then Gaddafi and Obama have the most dysfunctional father-son relationship, ever.

Hugo Chavez: Nations in airstrikes “care nothing” about Libyans
For those who wanted to see Chavez in a hard hat, here you go. Enjoy. The Venezuelan leader, a key ally of Gaddafi, took some time off from his tour of a road-building project in Caracas to let everyone know what he thinks of the Libyan airstrikes: “They want to seize Libya’s oil and they care nothing about the lives of the Libyan people. These are the men of war … what irresponsibility. Behind this is the hand of the United States and its European allies, instead of taking the path that we have modestly proposed.” In case you were wondering, that peace mission Chavez wanted to make didn’t go anywhere because Saif Gaddafi essentially said Chavez wouldn’t have any idea what was going on. source

The Arab League wants a no-fly zone in Libya. But will it fly?: While the U.S. and Britain approve of the latest push, the move needs to be approved by the larger international community at the UN, and it may not even be effective. source Follow ShortFormBlog

We’ve been defeated. They are shelling and we are running away. That means that they’re taking Ras Lanuf.
A rebel fighter in the Libyan city of Ras Lanuf • Discussing how Gaddafi supporters took over the oil port city. It’s just one front in which Gaddafi’s folks have been trying to gain lost ground. The capture of this town, by the way, completely follows the playbook Gaddafi has been pushing lately. source (viafollow)

If they take such a decision [to impose a no-fly zone], it will be useful for Libya, because the Libyan people will see the truth, that what they want is to take control of Libya and to steal their oil. Then the Libyan people will take up arms against them.
Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi • Offering a wince-worthy explanation of what will happen of a no-fly zone is enforced over Libya soil. Yeah, sure … this no-fly zone thing is all about taking the oil away from the Libyan government. We’ll go for that, right guys? source (viafollow)
