Gaddafi threatens Mediterranean war following "aggressive" international air strikes in Libya

Muammar Gaddafi
Tripoli, Mar 20: Colonel Muammar Qaddafi has warned that the "aggressive, and foolish" international air and missile strikes inside Libya have turned North Africa and the Mediterranean Sea into a "real war zone."

"The interests of the involved countries will be subjected to threats as of now in the Mediterranean Sea because of this aggressive, foolish act that's completely unjustifiable, other than it is a mere crusader colonial aggression that aims to launch a second wide ranging crusader campaign," CBS News quoted Gaddafi, as saying.

In his latest statement, the dictator fell short of blaming al Qaeda over the uprising, but instead urged other nations and people to stand by Libya to fight off "colonial aggression."

Qaddafi said that the aggressive actions in Libya are "only making this people stronger, tougher, more united within an internal and united national front. Right now, weapons depots are being opened in order to arm the people with all sorts of weapons, in order to enable them to defend Libya's independence its unity and its Honour."
