Shook Ones: Gadhafi’s Talking That Truce Talk Now That His Generals Are Turning Against Him

- By Bossip Staff

Moammar Gadhafi may have finally found some sense.

After three months of fighting and not giving a fizzzuck about the lives of his people, the president of South Africa says Gadhafi is ready to stop the insanity. Unfortunately, at this point those rebel armies could care less about a cease fire.

South African President Jacob Zuma said Gadhafi is ready to accept an African Union initiative for a cease-fire that would stop all hostilities, including NATO airstrikes in support of rebel forces. “He is ready to implement the road map,” Zuma said.

Zuma said Gadhafi insists that “all Libyans be given a chance to talk among themselves” to determine the country’s future. He did not say Gadhafi is ready to step down, which is the central demand of the rebels. He was speaking to reporters from South African and Libyan TV, which broadcast his remarks late Monday.

In April, Zuma led a delegation of the African Union to Tripoli with an AU proposal for a truce. Gadhafi said he would accept the truce but quickly ignored it and resumed his attacks, while the rebels rejected the cease-fire out of hand because it did not include Gadhafi’s exit from power. Since then many cease-fire efforts have failed for similar reasons.

In Benghazi, the de facto rebel capital, rebel Foreign Minister Fathi Baja rejected the African Union plan. “We refuse completely, we don’t consider it a political initiative, it is only some stuff that Gadhafi wants to announce to stay in power,” he told The Associated Press.

He said he believes Zuma is in Tripoli to negotiate an exit strategy for Gadhafi, though Zuma’s office denies that. Baja also said the rebels would launch an offensive against Gadhafi soon.

The thing is, the rebels really have good reason to stay the course until they get what they’ve been fighting for: Gadhafi’s own people are turning against him now.

Eight top Libyan army officers, including five generals, who have defected from Moammar Gadhafi’s regime appealed to their fellow officers Monday to join the revolt to hasten the end of Gadhafi’s 40-year rule.

Italian Foreign Ministry officials presented the generals, two colonels and a major to reporters in Rome three days after they fled Libya.

One of the officers, Gen. Melud Massoud Halasa, estimated that Gadhafi’s military forces are now “only 20 percent as effective” as what they were before the revolt broke out in mid-February, and that “not more than 10” generals remain loyal to Gadhafi.

Former Libyan Foreign Minister Abdel Rahman Shalgam, who now backs the anti-Gadhafi rebels, told the news conference that the eight officers are “part of 120 officials who left and abandoned Gadhafi and are now out of Libya.”

Italy, Libya’s former colonial ruler, long had close economic and diplomatic ties with Tripoli, but Rome was among the first Western nations to break with the regime and establish formal relations with the Libyan National Transitional Council, that is representing anti-Gadhafi forces.

Gen. On Ali On read an appeal to fellow army officers and top police and security officials “in the name of the martyrs who have fallen in the defense of freedom to have the courage” to abandon the regime.

The general, wearing street clothes like his fellow defectors, denounced both “genocide” and “violence against women in various Libyan cities.”

Yeah, see? That sh*t is real for really real reasons.

    This man is no saint. But neither is any other leader of any country, past or presant. I feel for the brother though. How could he ever win aginst the US and NATO. Also. Who are we to decide who is fit to be in charge of a coutry other than our own? When we get involved in wars like these, we (the U.S) come off as punk, cowards and bullies. A bully normally doesn’t pick on another big kid in the schoolyard. He picks on a weak kid who he knows he can beat and probably won’t fight back. If our govt is so fair and just, why don’t we get at nations who do and have done far worse? Here are just a few. Russia when they invaded Georgia a few yrs ago. Saudia Arabia, China, North Korea. Even France when we found out that they selling arms to Saddam Husseain.

  • f**k ing unblessed traitor daughter hoe get out of AMERICA

    It’s a game they are plantation mentality idiots making deals with america and anyone to put the other in charge while they oppress each other. If they were remotely legitimate concerning their people they would at least do what FIDEL CASTRO DID.

  • Dank

    Has nothing to do with killing his own people, America eats it’s young. But when you talk about buying oil and not using the dollar, and having gold backed currency… The bankers who print money out of thin air aint having it… So they are treating him just like Sadaam after he tried to do the same thing. They shouldn’t have talked about it, they should have just did it. Cause everyone knows there is no gold in fort knox…

  • f**k ing unblessed traitor daughter hoe get out of AMERICA

    America not only has gold reserved at Ft. Knox and 2 other locations and in 2 other countries. There are also very weathy americans who are not traitors that have very large gold and silver fortunes.

    That airstrike was in response to the bombing of a Berlin disco frequented by American soldiers in 1986. The Lockerbie bombing came later in 1988. I don’t think we ever retaliated for that.

    The failure to make our enemies pay for this along with the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole, the Marine Barracks in Lebanon and our emba$$ies in Kenya and Tanzania led our enemies to think we were weak and contributed to 9/11.

    • MR.MAKE.YA.FEELGOOD.(always read the fine print)

      Says who? I’ve never heard them say that we are weak, but I have read where they call us cowards.

    • The Commenter Formerly Known as White Devil

      As I said, our boys were shocked by the low morale of the American soldier and they realized that the American soldier was just a paper tiger. He was unable to endure the strikes that were dealt to his army, so he fled, and America had to stop all its bragging and all that noise it was making in the press after the Gulf War in which it destroyed the infrastructure and the milk and dairy industry that was vital for the infants and the children and the civilians and blew up dams which were necessary for the crops people grew to feed their families. Proud of this destruction, America a$$umed the titles of world leader and master of the new world order. After a few blows, it forgot all about those titles and rushed out of Somalia in shame and disgrace, dragging the bodies of its soldiers. America stopped calling itself world leader and master of the new world order, and its politicians realized that those titles were too big for them and that they were unworthy of them. I was in Sudan when this happened. I was very happy to learn of that great defeat that America suffered, so was every Muslim.

      -Osama Bin Laden

      When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature they will like the strong horse.

      -Osama Bin Laden, referring to Al Qaida as the strong horse and America as the weak horse.

    @white devil. rip nat turner gives a great retort to your “turn the other cheek” remark. And if you want to talk how a nation treats their ppl what about Sudia Arabia? What about the African nations that commit genocide? Look at all of the things we let North Korea get away with. Not only do we not F with them, but give them more aid whenever they act up. Why, bcuz they stand up to us. Like I said if you stand up to a bully they will leave you alone. And if H. Chavez stole all of the many military secrets that China did we would have ships at their shore. Georgia was a ally. We did nothing when Russia bomb them. And they stood up to Russia bcuz they thought that we had their back. The same way pumped up the Kurds and left them hanging.

      You are all over the map. I don’t know which part of your post to comment on first. We don’t control the world. Having policies opposed to us is not reason enough for us to attack another country. In fact, if you are our ally you get away with more. We can’t go around invading everyone. Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden stood up to us. That didn’t work out too well for them. Other dictators are opposed to us, be we don’t do anything to them unless they attack us or threaten our allies. We don’t attack N.Korea because that would leave S.Korea vulnerable to retaliation. Diplomacy is complex. There are overarching policy goals and promoting peace and democracy are two of those goals along with promoting our interests. The foreign policy section of our government tries to use whatever tools work best to accomplish those goals. Sometimes it is the carrot. Sometimes it is the stick.
