CNN has a running translation going on atm of one of Gaddafi's sons on Libyan TV with a ticker below with 'breaking news' statements. They're claiming ...
'Illegal immigrants' are among the protesters.
The protesters are taking drugs.
'Everyone' has weapons, protesters have stolen tanks, machine guns.
All those protesters are going to cause civil war.
The foreign investors will pull out, services will disappear, etc, etc, etc.
The country will collapse if you dare protest, basically.
Oh, and 'Europe and the US' will 'not allow' an Islamic emirate, and will occupy the country.
Think the Libyan people are naive enough to fall for his BS?
