Quotations from Gaddafi's Speech
"The constitution is very clear: take the weapons from them... I only have moral authority."
“I have not yet ordered the use of force, not yet ordered one bullet to be fired … when I do, everything will burn.”
“I will not leave the country and will die as a martyr.”
“No sound person has taken part in these actions, they are all children.… Take your children back. They are drugging your children. They are making your children drunk and they’re sending them to hell. Your children will die.”
“Come out of your homes, those who love Muammar Gaddafi. Women, men, girls, boys, those who side with Muammar Gaddafi and the revolution.… As from tomorrow, no, as from tonight, actually, people in Libyan cities and towns … chase [the protesters], arrest them, hand them over to the security [forces].”
