SIRTE, Libya (AP) — Libyan fighters drove the last holdouts of Moammar Gadhafi out of his hometown of Sirte in a few hours of fierce gunbattles Thursday, then declared victory over the last major resistance two months after the fall of Tripoli. The ecstatic former rebels celebrated by firing endless rounds into the sky, pumping their guns, knives and even a meat cleaver in the air and singing the national anthem.
In the central quarter where the final battle took place, the fighters looking like the same ragtag force that started the uprising eight months ago jumped up and down with joy and flashed V-for-victory signs. Some burned the green Gadhafi flag, then stepped on it with their boots.
They chanted “Allah akbar,” or “God is great” in Arabic, while one fighter climbed a traffic light pole to unfurl the revolution’s flag, which he first kissed. Discarded military uniforms of Gadhafi’s fighters littered the streets. One revolutionary fighter waved a silver trophy in the air while another held up a box of firecrackers, then set them off.
“Our forces control the last neighborhood in Sirte,” Hassan Draoua, a member of Libya’s interim National Transitional Council, told The Associated Press in Tripoli. “The city has been liberated.”
For about an hour now, I have been hearing reports out of Sirte Libya stating that Moammar Gadhafi had been either captured or killed as his home town was captured by the Libyan fighters, formerly known as the rebels.
This has not been confirmed by either the United States military, or Libya, or other sources, but the reports all over the radio now, say that he was captured and most likely wounded in the legs, with also reports of his death. This is a good thing, but I can see it coming now. Obama is going to gloat over this one. He killed Moammar Gadhafi, not taking into account that if Bush hadn’t started this in the first place, this would never have happened.
So I do not give Obama credit for this. Now, for you libs who could see this coming, before you get your panties in a wad, have to know, I do give credit to someone. Who I give credit for this, are the brave men and women of the rebels and our Military. God Bless you all for the sacrifices you are making for this cause in the war on terror. I know, that the reports of this say that it wasn’t the American military that has done this, so, that is why I have included the Libyan fighters in this “Good job” because it is they who are reported to be the ones in this battle.
I know that the Obama administration has been doing everything they can to stop this war from the time they took residence in the White House, and they have almost always talked down the military, and the War on Terror. As a matter of fact, the term “War on Terror” is not in the vocabulary of the current administration and they do not want that term used, but when something does go right in this war they do not dare name, they are the first to take credit for it.
Again, thanks to the brave units, both ours and the rebels, that have been involved in this from the beginning, and may God Bless you all to get home safe and sound.
May God Bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country
God Bless America, Bless all Americans, and bless us to start using more common sense.
